Music video production, religion and butt kissing!

Mildred Achoch talks to Martyr’s Truth Records founder Brad Partin about music video production, religion and butt kissing!

Mildred Achoch: What goes into producing a music video?
Brad Partin: $$$
Mildred : (laughs) Of course! Then do you get to pick the director, costumes etc?
Brad: I picked the song. Sorted through some videos by the different camera/video people, and picked the best of the bunch. The costumes were pretty much up to the people in the video and the artist. The folks in the video have to sign releases for their image/photo's to be used (legal crap).
Mildred: Sounds interesting! I plan to direct videos some time in the future…
Brad: You should! I paid good money for that video.
Mildred: But I hate all that legal stuff.
Brad: Legal stuff sucks but it is a necessary evil. I don’t like getting sued. Also, people WILL take advantage of you so you better be careful what you sign off on or agree to do.
Mildred: I would love to be more careful but sometimes I just sign stuff because I need to get paid quickly! Hopefully, after I've won that Oscar, things will be different.
Brad: Starving for your art makes us martyrs. Hence the name of my label. I'll put in a good word for you on that Oscar! (laughs) But you’re gonna have to kiss all the butts on your own.
Mildred: Ah! So that's where the name comes from!!! Mystery solved lol! I have never learned the art of butt kissing. And of course, as a Christian, why should I butt kiss when I have my heavenly Father's favor?
Brad: Word. Truth. The blood/story of the martyrs is the loudest voice there is. God Bless you. Stay gold!

ATTENTION KENYAN/AFRICAN ROCKERS AND FILMMAKERS!

John Canciani, from the International Short Film Festival Witnerthur (http://www.kurzfilmtage.ch/) contacted me with this information:

“For the 15th edition, taking place from 9th of November till 13th, we are planing to present several programms of Short Movies from the African continent and I'm programming a special evening with the Theme "Heavy Metal" and thats where I would like to ask you if you could help me. First if you can recommend me any short movies from kenya, any genre and films with something to do with heavy metal (or near to this theme) from any country or even from kenya oder african continent.

Besides that, we also have an international competition at the festival. If you know filmmakers in Kenya feel free to ask them to reply at our festival.

If you have any films (less than 30 mins) released during the last two years, we'd be glad if you register for the competition on our website [http://kurzfilmtage.ch/default.aspx?ID1=26&ID2=43].

The International Short Film Festival Winterthur is Switzerland's largest and most important short film festival. The festival takes place each year in November. It is a popular audience event and an important platform for short films and professional exchange.

ROFFEKE gets a mention in Wikipedia!

I recently heard about the Rock Society of Kenya so I decided to google to find out more about it. This is when I came across a Wikipeida entry about the Music of Kenya and RSK was mentioned under Rock. I was also pleasantly surprised when I read:

"Organized member bodies such as Wiyathi (now defunct)& Roffeke (Rock 'n' Roll Film Festival Kenya) were fundamental in initially marketing local rock bands in the country by hosting regular shows & helped to establish a vibrant rock community."

It's great to receive some recognition!

Read the whole entry about rock music in Kenya at:

Happy New Year!

Yes, a happy 2011 to everyone! This is the year that ROFFEKE resurrects from a long and fitful slumber. Watch this space for news and updates.
