In the last couple of weeks I’ve had the opportunity to work with a few people active on the Manchester grime and hip hop scene: NinjaTea, George Lucid and Nat James. This is a montage of some of the footage I’ve filmed during our photoshoots.
If anything, this was initially a list of resources that I had compiled to remind myself of the ways in which I could make money, but I’ve decided to share it as I feel as though it might be beneficial to people other than myself.
As a student, I know the struggle of both trying to get by with and without a job and how extra disposable cash is always appreciated. I know as well as you do that time is precious, however, and that searching the web for “how to make money quickly” and the likes of is often pointless and time consuming. If you have anything that could be added to this list, or you can vouch for anything already here, let me know in the comments. This list is going to be regularly updated so it might be an idea to bookmark it now and refer to it as time goes on.
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. Continue reading 15 Minutes of Fame
