Ark Video 2000 Olympics

Michael wrote a short video for the Australian environmental group, ARK and the Sydney Olympic Committee competing for the 2000 Olympics Games venue. Sydney had adopted an environmental theme in their bid to the International Olympic Committee. Michael wrote the video in which Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman appeared and supported the Sydney bid and the environmental inspiration it provided to the world. The video was included as part of the package provided to International Olympic Committee voting members. Sydney won the Games in a close competition over Beijing, China.
