On July 19th last year two emails dropped into my inbox through my @bandcamp page out of the blue. I almost ignored them both assuming they were the usual phising scam emails... never imagining someone might actually want to use one of my tracks, let alone pay to use one! 🙄
After reading them a few times and researching their contents I started to realise they were legit. Even contacting Bandcamp to find out if it was normal for a request like this to be sent through their site. #overcautious
This past year however has proven to me that with a bit of graft and persistence, working away in your spare room at what may seem like "just a hobby"... well, it can really pay off!
With sites like @Bandcamp or @YouTube allowing people to showcase their work to a global audience, who knows what opportunities might come along. So I just want to say thanks to the team behind Bandcamp.com 👍
One year on with my name in the credits of "Bad Santa 2" and listed in the soundtrack page of @IMDB... I'm glad I didn't ignore those emails! What an amazing experience to sit in a cinema and hear something I created on my iMac playing in the background.
This gave me the confidence boost I needed in my work and some great experiences where I can learn from in the future. So thanks a million to the music supervisor Tracy McKnight for choosing my track for inclusion! It means a lot! 😉
It also drove me to join @wearethemu who, through their contract advisory service were an immense help and gave me a great insight into how this all works, whilst also taking some of stress out of it all as it's not something I'm used to.
So remember, anything is possible 😉... just keep going! 🤞
