Amid the doom and gloom of Covid-19, Dubai based Dan Bolton Creative Management Agency, (DBCMA) is looking to keep the UAE’s creative spirits high, with the launch of a new entertainment podcast.
The company recently announced production of a brand new podcast focusing on the lives of people within the event industry in the UAE.
“From a creative and content perspective, the inspiration is to authentically tell our stories and those of real people within our industry.” Said Dan Bolton, owner and director, DBCMA.
“Now more than ever the live event and entertainment industry will go through a period of significant evolution and we want to drive some of the discussions around this.” He added.
The podcast, which is being produced in-house, was the brainchild of Ryan Poerner, an entertainment booker with DBCMA by day and podcast producer by night. “I’d been wanting to do something like this for a while but we had never had the time before.” Said Ryan.
“Most of the guests will be UAE based and will all be involved in the creative, event and entertainment industries in some capacity.” Added Ryan.
As for the content, “It will be broad, genuine and authentic. We want to initiate some positive and powerful discussions highlighting the opportunities that lie ahead, as well as creatively showcasing artists and share discussions with people whom we share similar interests.” Said Dan.
The company is currently in discussions with local ticket agency Platinum List to explore distribution opportunities as well as sharing content and resources. “It’s an interesting time as we’re all pretty much in a similar boat but there’s some great opportunities for authentic, like minded and genuine collaborations between different elements of the industry. Once all this shakes down it will be interesting to see what great things come out the other side.” Said Dan.
The podcasts will be released every Thursday and will be 20-30 minutes in duration.
Episode one ‘Life in Lockdown’ featuring Creative Director and Choreographer, Danny Lee, drops today (Thursday 14 May) at 3pm on YouTube and is hosted by Dan Bolton.
