Independent Venue Week and Blue Hippo Media are excited to announce plans for a new feature documentary celebrating the vital role of independent music venues in breaking, establishing and supporting live music.

As well as interviewing venue owners and operators, we will also be featuring artists who have played the venues, some for decades, others just now starting out, the promoters, sound and lighting engineers and stage crews who learn their craft making the show run smoothly. We may also speak to a fan or two.

Filming began during Independent Venue Week in January and will continue throughout the year with the premiere in the build-up to IVW 2019.

Here’s the link to the teaser we shot – hopefully that gives you a bit of a feel.

As with Blue Hippo’s successful record store film “Last Shop Standing” we’re initially reaching out to people with a real connection, passion and interest in the live scene to explore possibilities for sponsorship/funding in return for on and off-screen branding and PR opportunities.

If that’s you, or you feel there are others you know who might be interested, or you’d just like some more information, we’d love to hear from you.

Please get in touch with and
