My Backstage Tales is a celebration of the reasons why it’s so important to talk about what goes on behind the scenes in creative industries. Featuring the works of millennial content creators across multiple storytelling platforms, My Backstage Tales seeks to show you how telling a story, and providing an insight into backstage happenings can change the way we view front stage. It’s about exploring and learning about fashion, beauty, film, music, the topics that matter most, and discovering how millions of people that work in creative industries have the ability to evoke a positive change.
My Backstage Tales is centred around creative storytelling. We are teaming up with content creators from all around the world, and working with them to explore how we can bring awareness to the multitude of professions, skill sets, visions, historical developments and complex issues that creative industries are facing today. These people could be world famous public figures, all-star YouTubers, renowned bloggers or just those with a story to tell. In other words, you.
What content are we looking for?
We’re looking for stories from those who want to have a voice within the creative community. If you’re looking to get into writing, are a self-taught Premiere Pro whiz kid with a passion for videography, or perhaps you have a passion for the lesser known aspects of the creative industry, we want to hear from you! We’re looking for the stories on cool tech developments in production and manufacturing, unusual creative processes, sustainability & corporate responsibility, or anything else that comes to mind when you think, ‘backstage’. Most importantly, if you are, or know, someone who works hard in the creative industry and has, or will, achieve something amazing – reach out! Perhaps, you worked as an assistant to a film director and helped to scout locations, or write parts of the script? Maybe, you are a photographer who travelled the world to shoot music concerts? Or maybe, you are passionate about sustainability in the fashion industry and you want to inspire others to feel the same?
We want stories that will make us laugh, that make us cry, but most of all, that help us to learn about the people, places, and things that make creative industries so important in today’s society. These stories can be written articles, interviews, photo essays or in video form, and most importantly of all, remember that we want to learn about YOU and YOUR OPINIONS. So let your creativity go wild!
