I am obsessed with stories. Books, movies, art, games and music are some of the things I interact with on a daily basis; each find remarkable ways of telling stories that only few of us are able to imagine, let alone live.
The aim of Zooming In is to gather as many stories as possible from local artists. I am fascinated by the lives they lead and the experiences that define them, and these interviews are my attempt to create a lens to ‘zoom in’ on what our local storytellers have to offer. Each interview is in two parts: the first being something newsworthy from the artist, whether a new single or an international tour announcement; the second is a Q&A getting to know the artist. As you can imagine, this second part is my personal favourite where I enjoy spicing things up with games and showing off my research skills.
I am not alone in this endeavour of course. Big props to video editor extraordinaire Matthew van Schalkwyk who makes me look great (namely by getting rid of my awkward-at-times face) and creating a smooth video despite working with an amateur like me. Mention must also be made to the best of props a guy could ask for – Jerry the Colourful Giraffe, otherwise known as the real MVP!
This Channel is my passion project and I can’t wait to see where it goes. Thank you for your support.
