MY VIDEO teaser for Meet me in the City has prompted a few queries from radio folks asking when I’ll be putting out promos…
The track drops on Friday 7 October, so I really need to get it out to the media now. I put together a news release, make up a folder with tagged .mp3 and .wav audio files, cover art and the afore-mentioned news release and email some of the key radio folks.
There’s a video to be made for the track too. I’d thought out a treatment and made up a shot list but it’s too ambitious given the time frame and lack of budget. It’s not a difficult job and would best be done unobtrusively using the wee Osmo Pocket or GoPro cameras but I don’t want to ask anyone to do a job like this for free, no matter how quick and simple. I could use tripods and stuff, but it’s not easy to produce, direct, film and be in the production too…even if there’d only a couple of shots with both myself and Margaret in frame.
I decide that I’ll just grab as much relevant footage when I’m in town on Tuesday and make something from that.
Next job is some PR and promo for next weekend’s FrewFest show. I’ve not done much promo for it to date other than online listings and stuff so I need to get my finger out and get news releases and images out to the relevant press and local media.
Catriona and the kids arrive late afternoon so i hang out for a while then finish off in the studio. once the kids are in bed I make some arancini..then it’s pizza time!
