THURSDAY 1 October 2015, 5.45PM UNTIL 8.45PM
BIRMINGHAM CITY UNIVERSITY, MILLENNIUM POINT, CURZON STREET, BIRMINGHAM B4 7XG
ViX has been a professional singer-songwriter since the age of 16, with her all-girl band FUZZBOX achieving worldwide success with hits such as ‘Pink Sunshine’ and ‘International Rescue’. They parted company in 1991 but reunited in 2010. ViX currently performs with her new all-girl Americana band ViX & her MsChiefs, whose new single ‘Fame Is Your Driver’ is taken from their EP ‘Live at Magic Garden’. As a bonus to our usual format, at 9pm ViX & her MsChiefs will entertain us with an exclusive gig for Creative Networks.
Mark Pressdee is one of our region’s busiest filmmakers, receiving much critical acclaim for his latest comedy ‘Titanic Love’. Mark’s career began with TV work and he is a co-founder of Birmingham’s Producers’ Forum. Recognising the value of networking and missing no opportunity to nurture new talent, he also works with students at a number of universities, including Birmingham City University. ViX and her band liked Mark’s latest film and wanted a video that was similarly quirky for promotion of their single ‘Fame Is Your Driver’ – a clever take on the nature of today’s TV Audition Culture.
Join us at our free event to see and hear more from Mark and ViX about how they’ve built their careers, with a gig from ViX & her MsChiefs to round off a memorable evening. Watch ‘Fame Is Your Driver’ on YouTube https://youtu.be/axN-oB61xxg
