The Music Production University of New Zealand has opened its doors to the public for a week, inviting people to apply to become a student and work on music-related projects.
The company’s website states that music students can work on projects in a range of disciplines including visual art, film, theatre, performance, dance, photography, film editing, photography and performance design.
“We want to open up our facilities to everyone,” Music Production Director Ian McClean said.
“The key thing is to make sure that you are working on something that is important to you.
It is an opportunity to create something that makes a difference to people.”
The company has already received several applications from students, including the director of a music documentary film crew, who has applied for a full-time position.
Mr McClean is hopeful that students will be able to take part in the company’s projects, which include creating original music videos for local music festivals.
“It’s an opportunity for them to be part of a new community and have a real sense of community,” he said.
While the company was initially created as a music studio for musicians and film crews, Mr McClean has also been approached by other music production companies, such as the company behind the popular music video series One Big Holiday.
“This is one of the most exciting times for us to be working with artists and musicians,” he explained.
“They are coming in and really pushing the envelope, but also coming to the studio for inspiration and inspiration from their peers and from the outside world.”
I’m really excited about the fact that we can bring music to a whole new audience.
“Music production university, Music Production and Sound Design, will be open for business from Tuesday until October 28, 2019.
