What Are We Waiting For by Chris Peterson SM '13

besides this video from the freshman arts program

If you’re returning to our site today, you may have noticed that we’ve changed the homepage video. Gone is MIT: The Motion Picture, retired (appropriately) to the MIT Movies Emeritus page.

In its place, you can find “What Are We Waiting For“:

This movie was produced by MIT students during the Freshman Arts Program which took place before orientation. We liked it so much that we asked them if we could feature it on the website, and they said yes!

Starring/writing/filming/editing/producing the movie were:

  • Evie Adams
  • Delian Asparouhov
  • Peter Godart
  • Nikita Khlystov
  • Lili Sun
  • Zach Tomlinson

I also want to give a special shout-out to Amiina, the band who wrote and recorded the eponymous song, and the folks at Big Dipper Productions, who kindly allowed us and the students to use the music. If you like the song, or if even if you’d just like to support the band, you can download it from iTunes here.

p.s. if you want to share the video above, use this version on YouTube!

    good eye, piper – I think Evie, the girl, is a current student who was helping out.

    Beautiful video. I guess this was filmed around MIT’s campus, can someone tell me what are the famous MIT buildings appearing on it (if any) ?

    Great job ! I think it is a fresh idea to put such a video on an admissions website’s homepage.
