SMIA Workshops: Creating Engaging Video Content For Music Projects From Home

Besides music, video content is one of the best ways to engage, inform, and entertain an audience, but due to Covid-19 we have found ourselves unable to make the kinds of content we used to.

Filmmaker Gareth Goodlad (Danger Kill Productions) will share with you all the ways in which you can still be making creative content right from your own home, and sharing what kinds of content we can expect to make as our country slowly lifts restrictions.

Gareth is a filmmaker working in all sectors of the music industry, from live events and festivals to music conferences such as Wide Days to creating content for such bands as Fatherson, Idlewild, Mogwai, and Honeyblood.
