7. Claire (Theatre Student) Needs You

I am a 2yr theatre student and I am looking for some people who might be interested in recording film and photography for a music event. The night is being hosted by RIDDIMTION Soundsystem alongside international artists who will perform during the evening.
The event is on Sat 24th May and we would like footage from 12midnight – 3am.
We can offer you a guestlist for the event and there is also an opportunity for this to generate some paid work in the future, asRIDDIMTION have footage from their events over the past 14years which requires editing. You would also be welcome to use the footage or photography for your personal portfolios.
This is an exciting opportunity to get some footage that is not always available to you and although it poses challenges, the atmosphere and uniqueness of the night should create some brilliant moments for you to capture.
If you are interested or want a bit more information please contact
A link to the event and some more info on RIDDIMTION can be found at:
Thanks very much and hopefully hear from you soon,”
