Hello, Creatives!  Our latest series of blogs comes from the lovely folk at Northern Bear Films, an award-winning creative film & media company, focused on creating and sharing entertaining stories.

Since launching in 2012, Aman, Jerome & the team have delivered projects for local to national brands, including names such as The National Trust, Creative England, and the British Film Institute.

Today, the basics – a very building-blocks approach to video production;

Episode 20 – How to be a Hustler

Hello, Creatives!

In 2008, Beyoncé coined the phrase “a diva is a female version of a hustler”.

In all her super-star enriched glory, Beyonce may be right, but I had the pleasure of chatting with a self-declared “hustler” from Adelaide, Australia.

Since meeting Tiffany Rouge whilst she studied in the UK, she’s returned to the land down under and found herself the Marketing and Events Coordinator for the Hotel Richmond in Adelaide.

“I have worked damn hard to get where I am. And I have hustled… A hustler just does stuff, they get stuff done, by any means possible. And I think that’s my superpower.”

Since this episode of 99% Perspiration was recorded, Tiffany has also been taken on as a radio producer at Fresh 92.7, and continues to organise fashion & clothing events in Adelaide.

Also joining us for Episode 20, Ed Westman brings some of his best advice for aspiring filmmakers – and in terms of getting your name out there, he can teach you how to “hustle” like the best.

“In a way, making a show-reel is redundant… You’re better off putting your work into a big portfolio, on a website, because then people will be able to see on a project by project basis what your skills are.”

Alongside freelancing as a Video Content Creator based in Sunderland, Ed is the Video Producer with the University of Sunderland’s Marketing and Communications department.

And until next time,

Stay productive, stay awesome!
