Back in May (remember May?!) I was kindly invited by Robinsons Fruit Shoot to join brand new soon-to-be superstar girl band unperfect on the set of their new music video for their latest track, I’m a Dreamer. This catchy summer anthem is all about inspiring kids to dream big!
I got to go behind the scenes with my trusty iPhone to capture the day’s shoot and soak up the atmosphere, as well as hang out with the band and the child actors from the Fruit Shoot ads (Darcey, Kit and Geneva), who were the sweetest! Best of all, I got to pretend I was an honorary band member for the day (forget to mention that unlike their incredible voices, I can’t sing a note)!
I even got my own crew which reminded me of my former directing days, and I interviewed the girls about their dreams and their partnership with my own kid’s favourite drink – Fruit Shoot.
If you haven’t heard of them yet, you will! unperfect have already had radio play, A-listers champion them, and they’re about to explode!!! Put together by Brian Higgins from Xenomania – the management team behind Girls Aloud and Sugababes, these girls can’t fail. Watch the interview!
Smart, funny, self-loving, beautiful and inspirational, I loved every minute hanging out with Chloe, Siobhan, Soipan and Tiah. All in their mid-twenties, the group signifies a new prototype for 21st century girl bands with a frank and formidable attitude that’s a world away from traditional, glossy, major label groups. The name says it all. unperfect are empowering young people to feel free to be themselves and more confident in their skin, and like them, fearlessly go after their dreams.
For kids, finding that ‘thing’ they’re really into – be it sport, art, music, filmmaking or anything that brings them passion and joy – is great for building self-esteem, self-confidence and resilience. I loved the band’s attitude that if you can dream it, you can do it! Hope the boys are taking note…
