The plans for the music video I am pitching came together quickly, near the deadline.
Here are some further notes to supplement my submission.
For your consideration.
I intend to establish the hashtag #JPtelepathy to help gather social media attention.
With YouTube annotations/descriptions and my own social posts, I’ll encourage fans to tweet, post, and instagram personal anecdotes of telepathy, including that hashtag.
As a part-time web developer, I have experience using various social media marketing tools. I will create dedicated page on my site which will pull in and display all #JPtelepathy posts.
And I will regularly point followers to that page, fostering a sense of community and tribe as they see their posts among others.
See below examples pulling in #telepathy from Twitter and Instagram:
- The Telepathy video will bring attention to the local, very talented new media design team HFOUR – creators of the centrepiece “Quantal Quilt“
- I’ve become interested in approaching a local dancer or two for a few additional scenes to be intercut. Some choreographed dancing in front of the Quantal Quilt could be really great. (And there is money in the budget’s contingency section.)
Choreographed dancing reference:

I won’t say whose big-league Calrec console this is, but he is super nice, and very supportive of independent music. Major thrill to receive a photo of my EP on it. Thank you!
Went to see the great documentary The Wrecking Crew on the big screen.
Opinions on streaming services continue to thrash about.
Strikes me as growing pains with legitimate points on both sides. My 2-bits are at the end. To start, a round-up:
Indaba Music continues to put on these great remix contests. Over the last few months I’ve submitted entries in the How to Destroy Angels and José James contests.
Have a listen:
