The night life atmosphere has been a captivating part of adult hood for generations. The lifestyle of prominent industry players is highlighted in television reality shows and through the millions of social media posts that are created on a daily basis. Still, there aren’t many people that know exactly what it means to be an “event promoter” in a major metro area. That’s all set to change with the creation of “The Promoters.”
Typing in the words “event,” “party” and “promoters” into any search tool will bring up a laundry list of examples to show people who fancy themselves to be promoters within the entertainment industry. These individuals are well known for hosting daily and weekly events at some of the most well-known venues in major metro areas. Their popularity has allowed them to grow a following that comes out to any event that they may host for the opportunity to rub elbows within their social network.
What started out as a hobby for some has grown into a full blown career. Professional event/party planners are contracted to help their clients create lasting memories with single parties or help build the customer base of fledgling venues. Either way, the practice of being a promoter has continued to grow and evolve into an industry that deserves recognition.
This is where “The Promoters” comes into play. The brain child of Raphael Garcia, the documentary series is set to follow some of the most well-known hosts in various metro areas. The idea is to see exactly what being a promoter has done to and for their life socially and professionally. Very often their followers get the opportunity to see snippets of their lives in pictures and brief videos, but they are never given the chance to see an in-depth, real view of what things are like on the other side of the door.
The Indiegogo campaign to raise $3000 was launched on March 3 and will run through May 2. The creators have built in a number of perks that should be enticing to the individuals who enjoy to take part in this atmosphere. Donaters will receive such “gifts” as producer credit, acknowledgment across social media and guestlist access to tapings. The donations will go to cover costs such as taping, editing, styling, advertising and any other overhead expenses for the production of three episodes in 2014.
With so many people going out of their way to enjoy the nightlife style in their area, “The Promoters” is taking the time to cast the spotlight on those that go out of their way to make those moments possible.
