A part of CC from the start
Having found the project through CC, we asked how Jordan first discovered the site. “After university, I was looking for video production houses to represent me,” he tells us.
“Then I came across the site and the jobs I found on Creative Commission kept me freelance to this day, never needing to take on a full-time role anywhere. This worked perfectly for me, as I could work from home, stay involved with collectives I was a part of whilst still giving time to my personal projects.” Keeping the work-life balance is important in creative industries, especially when the ‘life’ part involves the personal projects you need for yourself.
“I've found it an incredible link for creatives to be directly in touch with labels and have an opportunity to build relationships and have ongoing work,” he goes on. “I feel as though I've been a part of it from the start. It's helped me reach audiences and briefs I wouldn't have been able to just working on my own.”
We asked if he had any words of wisdom for those just starting to carve out their dream career paths. “Experimentation is key! Try different things out, test your ideas. Use your friends, the environment around you, and collaborate to elevate your work.”
