We are looking for someone who can write and produce a song for an independent TV show we are filming. The show is called Travel by Dart. In every episode, we throw a dart at the world map and go wherever it lands, no matter how hard, difficult or expensive it is.
The show is independent and we are producing it with our own money and help from other product-placement partners (hotels, food, etc).
We are looking for someone who can join the team as a talented songwriter that we can promote along with our show.
We need an "anthem" that needs to be played during the intro for episodes and during the shows, or for our blog video posts/clips on social media. Needless to say, you will get your credits in the episodes, as well as on our websites. We don't want you to do this for free, but we can only offer $150.
If interested, here are requirements for the song that you need to write, perform and produce:
- The song should be an inspiration for people to do things they want without finding reasons not to (salary, marriage, etc), complaining about their jobs or relationships, or simply postponing.
- The song needs to be modern, inspirational, and dynamic. A bit faster pace. Imagine people singing along or clapping hands during the song to a certain rhythm or chorus. Here are a couple of style songs we like:
- The melody should have occasional ethnic/multicultural elements in it, at different times. Not too many, just references. For example, you can implement some effects with African drums, accordion, Latino beats, maybe a group (like Gospel singers) singing your chorus along with you, or other exotic musical instruments.
- Here are some key phrases ideas/concepts we need in the lyrics:
"people like to complain about everything, while I take my suitcase and let a dart choose my destination"
"I don't care where I will land, wherever it will be I know I will do great"
"The world spins the way it spins, good thing it spins in my favor"
"I work with what I have, I don't waste time focusing on what I don't"
"The light is green until is red" (metaphorically, meaning most people don't operate that way. they think the light is always red and keep waiting for the green)
Of course, you can play with these words, they don't have to be the same - the ones above are just concepts we live by - just be creative.
We really need to pick the best choice, so if you have previous work that is similar to what we are looking for please send over for review. We wanna see your porftolio and listen to some of your your songs (Soundcloud, YouTube?).
Are you taking the challenge?
