"He say I know you, you know me, one thing I can tell you is you got to be free. Come together, right now, over me.” Well one thing we can tell you is the four musicians and ten person crew we recently assembled for a killer project definitely didn’t know each other, yet they were able to prove that getting the right kinda talent in the right kinda setting can lead to true movie magic.
Most freelancers know a thing or two about the importance of collaboration, am I right? You get hired for a project but have to provide your own team, or are creating your next masterpiece but need someone else’s skill-set to get it Mona Lisa ready. Your success often depends on the prowess of your contributors, which can be a very scary thing! We here at tispr believe in faith not fear, so decided to prove how easily you could use the platform to get any project done, big or small (but we decided to go big cause hey, go big or go home).
The desired result: a kickass music video featuring the most talented musicians/shot by the best film crew and drone operator from the top of Los Angeles at sunset, with the downtown skyline as the perfect backdrop. No sweat, right? Well yeah, thanks to the app all our glands stayed dry, and the players were pretty stoked with the experience:
“The rooftop shoot I did with tisprs was SO much fun! It was professional and done right. Not to mention everyone was so sweet and talented! I got the chance to meet and create with other creatives which is one of my favorite things, ever. Such an awesome experience. So thankful to have been a part of it!” - singer Carley Nunn
While the performers may have been impressed with the process, what really knocked us off our feet was witnessing these four musicians come together (pun intended) and play as if they’d been jamming away on rooftops for years. Guitarist Daniel Kalisher said it best:
“It was so cool to see how everyone's individual expertise played a small part in making an idea come to life. You never really think about how many different skill sets come together to facilitate a successful work environment, and this made me very aware and appreciative!”
He ain’t kiddin. In just a week’s time a Media Director, Steadicam Operator, Drummer, Bassist, Guitarist, Singer, Director of Photography, Boom Operator, 1st AC, 2nd AC, Drone Operator, Assistant Director, Production Manager and Mock Filmer (all found locally on tispr) were able to unite, having never met, and leave with an epic piece of content to assist in their careers.
So how about you? There’s no time like the present to bring your next brilliant idea to life, especially now that you have a one stop shop to find everyone you need! But if you won’t take our word for how incredible a process like this can be, take bassist Kurtis Keber’s:
"Working with tisprs was an absolute pleasure. The rooftop location, overlooking downtown Los Angeles, was so fun! Everybody on the crew was very professional and accommodating - the kind of crew you want to be working with all the time. I really can't wait to see how tispr evolves!”
