Pitch (This was sent to both James and Nina)
For my uni project this semester we’ve got to make an audio project about anything we want. my idea was to do a straight audio doc about music at weddings and the types of things that go into making a great musician/DJ at a wedding party.
We have to have a “Commissioner” to approve it but it doesn’t have to get used or featured as such, it’s just for the sake of the project in this case.
But I was wondering, would you both be happy for me to use you guys as my commissioner. I was Thinking I could feature Piano DJ and talk about the sax players, DJ’s and pianists who make the weddings great.
I could also do an interview with either one of you to talk about the business, why you set it up? how the idea came about, sharing some of your experiences as musicians at weddings etc. Things like this!
Would that be okay? You could also use my audio piece about Piano DJ if you wanted to at the end of it…
Let me know if you have any questions 🙂
My audio project is in the style of Radio 4/Heart FM and was commissioned by Piano DJ. (Screenshot of email in document)
DJ’ing is something so many of us want to get into nowadays, for some it’s a full-time career that can expand into big things and that’s where you get superstar DJ’s such as Calvin Harris or Avicii. Then you have more local Club DJ’s who will play across the uk and beyond but aren’t quite as well known. And then you have wedding DJ’s who play a variety of music to couples who have just got married. In this piece we shall be diving into the highs and lows of a wedding DJ, looking exactly into what the life of a wedding DJ is like and of course following a live wedding to give us a really good idea of what can be expected for people who have never even been to a wedding where there’s a live DJ before.
