"Inspire is an experiment to see what would happen if we gave Inspiration its own platform". -Fritzo founder of BringItBackTour Inspire
Inspire 2013 is the pilot initiative to show the world what happens when artistic talent meets resources, mentorships, community support and opportunities, designed to provide a hand up to artists, in a way that inspires whole communities. Showcasing the importance of collaboration and how we all are inspired by everything we see, hear, and experience as whole.
With the support of the Bring It Back Tour, Inspire is well positioned to provide access and services that will motivate artists nationwide to share their skills while learning new ones. As part of the Bring It Back national tour, Inspire will:
Bring video teams into communities visited by Inspire to shoot top quality HD videos of the local artists at work. Advance notice of the Inspire team's arrival to town will enable artists to prepare, create buzz and bring some of the very best to the event weekend.
During the event weekend, Inspire will host a variety of events and educational seminars to help all kinds of artists understand the business, meet other artists and connect with producers, directors, sponsors and many others that can help an artists career. Much like music reality shows, we will locate and give creative platforms to a wide spectrum of undiscovered and underpriveleged talent, and provide all artists involved with an opportunity to be seen on a centralized hub online. Each week new artists will be showcased on the Bringitbacktour/Inspire.com website, and made available to everyone. Artists of all kinds will be interviewed to have their work showcased and presented in a professional manner. This process will highlight the skill that it takes to deliver the fruits of dedicated labor, as well as the outcome of how it affects everyone involved in the process, from beginning to end.
We will invite guest directors and editors to craft the final video footage and documentary pieces acquired during the tour, enabling filmmakers to hone their craft while helping artists share their passion.We will work closely with local non-profits to provide them with an event where their constituents can participate, build community relations and dramatically increase visibility.The more organizations come to understand each other's missions and resources, the stronger the community and larger their reach becomes in increasing the success of all. Cooperative economics are key components to the BIBT/Inspire community vision.
At the end of the tour, with the many collaborations of creative works, we will have connected with thousands of performers from around the country, produced dozens of music videos, interviewed hundreds of artists, producers, and supporters in the community to facilitate the process of creative collaboration for the future. Young artists will recognize that they can do their passion while supporting and being supported by their community. Music videos have a lasting impact on consumers, artist and fans alike. They will meet others in the business and have the chance to share what they know with a growing network of people seeking to implement new ideas.
