We are back with another post on what it’s like to work on our side of the counter. We realised that our clients might come and go while we stay blissfully unaware of their curiosity as to what it’s like working in the industry of sound & events, which is why we’ve decided to have a little “show & tell” in the form of our blog posts.

Without further adieu, fresh off the streets of George we have Sean Venter, the newest SND crew member filling the big role of “events assistant”. We asked Sean what part of the job he loves the most to which he responded that the process of setting up and striking down stages was the most enjoyable and the most difficult being the act of running the stage.

We asked young Sean what some of the challenges are that people generally won’t know about unless you work in sound set-up & events. He simply said that the bigger the event, the more damage there is done by having something not operating flawlessly and that the hardest unforeseen part of the job is not getting everything operating 100 percent, but keeping it operational throughout the entire event. To be so young yet so wise in the ways of the world.

Some of the perks of working on the grinding side of SND Productions according to Sean is meeting the fabulous and flamboyant artists that they serve. He says that the band he enjoyed meeting most was South Africa’s very own Prime Circle when it comes to the most memorable moment on the job thus far.

We asked Sean for any closing remarks to which he said, “In this life I am an Events Assistant, in another I would have been a veterinarian and on a scale of 1-5 on how likely I am to recommend Windows 10 to a friend, it would have to be a solid 3”.

Welcome to the crew Sean, we will be watching your career with great interest over the next few years!

It was a sunny Thursday afternoon here in Hibernia street when we got the idea to write blog posts dedicated to what it’s like working on the inside of SND. We realised that many of our clients only get to see the end result of what we do, but know very little about the process of getting to where the end result is the desired one. We asked ourselves who would know the process best and the answer was an obvious, SP Smit.

SP SMit is our very own, in-house events manager. If ever there is a man of the hour, it’s SP. We asked him what part of the job he enjoys the most to which he gave the best reply of loving when a plan comes together, what a guy.

Although he feels strongly about the secret perks of the job which is sightseeing & general traveling, the challenging part of the job he says is the same answer as it is for the question of what you wouldn’t know about the job unless you were in the industry already. The answer is straight and simple. It is preparing for the unforeseeable.

When asked what he would have liked to do if he wasn’t forming part of the SND crew, he said he had no idea. All he knows for a fact is that on a scale of 1-5, he is a hard 5 on recommending Windows 10 to a friend.

SP Smit, the crew wouldn’t be the same without you!

Just picture it! You’ve been working hard on your specific venue. It might be a local bar with dim lights and a stage the size of a podium or it could be your gay best friend’s wedding with all its lavish details.

Every aspect has been taken care of accept for the music. What you need is a live band! First things first, deciding on the artist/artists you would like to book for the event. You settle on one, but what now? Do they have a website? Where can you find their contact details? Do they have a manager or do they manage themselves? Where will they be when their tour ends?

That’s quite a learning curve and even if you know all of this, you now need to build up a relationship with the artist, getting them to trust in your credibility. Why go through the hassle when you can outsource it to SND? We have a wide circle of friends among the artists having spent years building up trust within the artist community. Give us a call, tell us what you need and we will make it happen.

Book the artists of your wildest dreams with SND Productions!
