The lifecycle of a rockstar
My first idea is the life of a rockstar, where i plan to produce a series of images resembling a life cycle.
This life cycle would consist of life events of the stereotypical rock star, from past to present showing their interest in music, following through to their dreams being successful.And then the typical ” Sex, Drugs, Rock N Roll! ” where their life will reach its highest point and begin to fall.From this point i don’t want my subject to hit rock bottom, i want him tor cover and fix his life. He will get rid of the thing influencing this bad lifestyle, the band.From there he will find a girlfriend, maybe a child, a nice stable job and continue living a respectful life.He will never give up music, i plan my last image to be him perhaps teaching his son how to play the guitar.Showing that you don’t need to stop doing what you love, this also restarts the life cycle.
This is a documentary idea.
This was inspired by a friend of mine who was once in the music industry. He was a guitarist for a band, and his band got great publicity, but after a while he started taking drugs and became a meth addict. He has now sorted his life and has a stable job in Burton. The most inspirational thing he said to me following this up is ” I would say i’m a recovered meth addict, but i am not. Nobody is. You’re always a recovering addict, you just have to stay strong. ”
Artists i have found to link in with this work is:
