The only way is up for Brandon!

The only way is up for Brandon Sutherland-Parker, a Year 13 student at Richmond Sixth Form College, as in just three days, his media studies music video attracted over 2,000 hits on Youtube!  Brandon’s fabulous A-level media coursework music video was inspired by his passion for dance.  Six months in the making, Brandon choreographed, produced, directed and edited the film to the track ‘Level Up’, by Ciara, choosing this song for its catchy tempo and positive message and vibe. His concept developed from an idea to showcase dance from a number of different angles and sets within College, culminating in a mass ensemble on one of the sports fields.

His concept developed from an idea to showcase dance from a number of different angles and sets within College, culminating in a mass ensemble on one of the sports fields.   Brandon comments: “I am overwhelmed with the response to my film. I am simply buzzing and cannot believe that in only three days it achieved over 2,000 hits on YouTube.  I am currently applying for dance performance courses and will be able to present my video to showcase my work as part of my auditions. I am really proud of the reaction I’ve received and hope to create another film in the future.  I am extremely thankful to all the cast and crew who, with unfaltering enthusiasm, helped make this possible and to everyone who has liked and shared the film.”   Brandon orchestrated everything, including a ten-strong production team, involving video footage, projections, as well as drone shots at the end of the film.  Overall, Brandon invited 78 dancers, from Years 7 to 13 to take part, including the School and College ‘Evolution Dance Company’ – it was a truly inclusive event that will certainly inspire other students.   Danni Fox, Brandon’s dance teacher, adds: “Brandon is a phenomenally talented student and strives to excel in any project he is faced with. His projects in dance have few boundaries in terms of creativity and he is constantly challenging himself and others around him to work harder and “go bigger”! Younger dance students, who have been taught by Brandon, really look up to him and have the utmost respect for his enthusiasm and commitment to the Arts. He is a great role model and an asset to our department. This video is just one example of the discipline, professionalism and passion Brandon has for dance and I am certain that this will just be the beginning of his success in commercial dance choreography”.   To view Brandon’s video follow this link https://tinyurl.com/y7whxqfq
