Event Management, Project Management
Rocking Vienna was my first big project: what started as an enthusiastic idea directly after graduating from high school in the summer of 2012 grew into an online platform for concert and event photography, a concert booking agency, and finally, a video production company. Let’s have a look at the individual aspects:
- Concerts and Events: starting in October 2012, I organized the Rocking Vienna monthly sessions – a series of concerts that continued until Fall 2014, and provided young, local musicians with their first chance to play in a professional and high-quality environment. Playing in locations such as the (now-defunct) Shelter, dasBach, Local Bar, Viper Room and Replugged, the monthly sessions quickly became a well-established player in the local music scene.
Additionally, Rocking Vienna created a number of successful clubbings: Après Swim – a 2014 summer clubbing featuring a guest performance of Money Boy – and Stifflers, a new brand of student clubbings.
- Photography: high-quality concert photography, no matter how big or small the act. That was our goal, and for that reason, we collaborated with both, local musician hubs such as Local Heroes Austria, and Austria’s most renowned booking agencies such as Barracudamusic and Arcadia Agency.
- Video Production: shooting music videos became our specialty, but additionally, we also shot other high-quality videos: aftermovies for Seaside Festival, Overdrive Encore, Rock in Vienna Festival, and promotional clips for sponsors of large Austrian events.
In 2015, I decided to start moving onto new challenges and began phasing into a consultancy role. Today, the Video Production branch of Rocking Vienna lives on and continues to deliver high-quality video experiences!
