At the INDIE Channel theyre pretty passionate about the bubbling creative culture in South Africa, with 2016 seeing the launch of the first-ever Jameson INDIE Channel Music Video Grant.
Jameson invited directors, videographers, musicians, stylists, dancers and the likes to submit their ideas for a chance to win R100K in funding to make it happen. And because they got so many good proposals, they decided to award two entries with R100K each. The resulting music videos were a perfect combination of INDIE craft, extraordinary visuals and smooth production a true blend of the arts.
