Many people are born with talent but not so many are willing to put the hard yards in to develop their skills to a stage that they can use them to perform and communicate to other people. On 'THE CREW' we are looking for just that sort of person.
We work with individual singers, musicians, bands, performance ensembles, writers, arrangers, presenters as well as young people who want to get involved in project management, event co-ordination and production.
We have a collaborative, creative melting pot approach to our production where people get the opportunity to express their ideas in a 'safe' environment. THE CREW is a great place to experiment with ideas and approaches to performance. It is also a great place to meet other talented people and benefit from their input.
If you would like to take part please feel free to get in touch.
VIDEO CLIP PRODUCTION
On THE CREW we have a growing bank of video clips that we have produced for bands and artists. These can be found on the website or on our youtube channel.
If we develop a clip with a band or artist the ownership remains with the band or artists. They are free to use the clips for what ever purpose they see fit e.g. promotions, marketing on their own youtube channel etc.
If you would like you would like to be considered for production of a clip once again get in touch. You must be around senior high school age (plus a few years) and you must have original material.
