I'm a sound assistant that is finding it hard to get into crews within the industry. Most crews i.e. mixers use the same people and get on all the shoots.
If i can acquire my own gear and relearn how to use it, I can market myself as a mixer and boom operator and show I can do just as well as the other crews if not better and be more in demand.
The money will only be going on sound gear. its around £6k for some basic gear as its all state of the art gear. I'll show my gear and set up and how to use it on my youtube channel: famous James to show I have used the money as I intended to.
I feel sound on tv isn't always thought of as important, I want to show it is and make great sound with the best tools possible and eventually have my own crew but also let new sounds come and join me as this industry is a hard industry to get into as it is at the beginning.
