Paid opportunity for East London Music Creators


Help us to develop the musical landscape of the feature film Hear My Voice. We are looking for 8 young East London based music creators to join our team.

Hear My Voice is a Billy Elliot story - in reverse. When TJ won a scholarship to an exclusive London choir school at 7 his ambitious single mother Bea thinks she has achieved her dream of rescuing her young black son from the hood. By thirteen TJ had become lead Chorister and is applying for Eton - and seem to be well on his way to fulfilling his dream of becoming a world famous opera singer.

But when TJ’s voice breaks and his mum Bea passes away – TJ ends up back in the hood living with his estranged eccentric Congolese father Ron and going to a local school. Slowly he starts to discover the joys and harsh reality of being a young black boy growing up in East London.

Can TJ still fulfil his dream of becoming an opera singer or can he find a whole new voice with which to sing?

We are looking for those creators who already have musical experience. The ones who are interested to work in the creative industry. This is a tremendous career development opportunity for those who are selected.
