This was a fantastic new expertise and a number of enjoyable.
Working with the band resulted within the alternative to create my first music video, finishing all of the precept images and modifying. I presently have created three and stay up for extra. These experiences have expanded the scope of my abilities and has led to a wonderful partnership with one other native musician/writer creating advert campaigns for social media, music/poem movies and guide covers.
