One of the coolest things about independent musicians is that they use the most innovative and engaging ideas to create, curate and share their music. From filming and recording their music wherever they can (or in sheds, like these Shed Sessions), to creating homemade music videos, some of the most authentic music – and indeed art – is created by independent musicians with the freedom and determination to do what they deem fit to promote their work.
Angelique Rodrigues is a singer-songwriter and she is asking the public (that’s you!) to get involved with her most recent music video. Now, you don’t have to jump on a train to London or wear your Sunday best. Getting involved with this project simply consists of you sending pictures to Angelique of you and your partner or close friend and giving permission for these images to be used in her new music video.
Getting involved is simple. All you need to do is choose a couple of pictures (or videos) and send them to her via her Facebook. Alternatively, if you don’t have Facebook, you can email me them and I will forward them on.
If you don’t want to get involved, you can still help out (and it would be really appreciated) by sharing this post and the post from Angelique’s Facebook (displayed below) across social media and helping to get as many people involved as possible.
CALLING COUPLES OF ALL AGE, RACE & SEXUALITY:
I am currently creating a homemade music video for one of my original tracks ‘Stay with you’. My idea for this video is to create a montage formed of pictures of as many happy and diverse couples as possible.
Therefore I am asking for any couples who are willing to send me a picture (or short video clip) of them together, I will try to use as many as possible and all of those which are used will be credited at the end of the video (unless you don’t want your name mentioned).
Also, if you know some friends who would be interested in having their picture in the video please share this with them too or send over their picture but I do need permission from both the people in the picture before I can use it so make sure you don’t send it without their consent.
The photo can be taken by a friend, in a professional studio or just a selfie, all our welcome! (However I won’t be able to use them if the’re too blurry or grainy).
I’m hoping to get the video completed within the next 2 – 3 weeks so if I could have the pictures as soon as possible that’d be great.
Thank you – Have fun taking and collecting pictures!
Edit: if you’re not in a couple but you have a picture of yourself with a really close friend you can send that over too as long as both of you are comfortable with that 🙂
Remember to please share this post and get as many people involved as possible!
