Rizzle Kicks launch work experience initiative for Lost Generation video

David Knight - 28th June 2013

Brighton pop-rappers Rizzle Kicks have been offering up to 150 work experience placements to young people, to work on the music video for the first single from their upcoming second album. And the deadline for entry for young people applying for a placement on the three day video shoot in early July is today, June 28th.

The band has teamed up with GoThinkBig – a work experience initiative launched by O2 and Bauer Media - to offer young people across the country the chance to work on the video for Lost Generation, a song about the perils of reality TV, to be mentored by music video professionals.

Rizzle Kicks and GoThinkBig will be recruiting young people to fill job roles on the set of their new music video to support the release, which will be available for pre-order on iTunes from 8th July. And GoThinkBig have announced that a big range of positions will be made available across a variety of roles, from runners though to stage hands, make-up artists to cast, camera crew to directors, producers through to editors and in the marketing and promotion departments.

Each young person appointed into a role will work closely with a professional counterpart on the set of the new video, which will be shot over three days in London, early July. For one lucky applicant, a star role alongside the director is available, overseeing all aspects of the production.

Jordan Stephens of Rizzle Kicks said: “We want to give kids the kind of break we got. There are so many talented young people across the UK who all too often don’t get the chance to prove themselves in a real work environment.

"That’s why we wanted to get involved with GoThinkBig, using the launch of our new single Lost Generation to offer up opportunities for people to get a foot on the ladder. We want to hear from everyone with relevant skills or simply with drive and determination to succeed."

Young people aged between 16-24 can apply for a host of different roles through the GoThinkBig websiteThe closing date for applications for a placement is today (June 28th).
