Clowdy exclusive: ‘The Music Factory’

The Music Factory is a short documentary by Mike Staniforth, a Manchester based Cinematographer, Filmmaker and Editor, which follows an unsigned band, The Mantells, and their 17 week challenge to get into the Christmas chart.

They have been given a task to see how far they can get in the music industry in 17 weeks, the same amount of time it takes an unknown X-Factor contestant to go from a nobody to international fame.

The documentary will be available exclusively on Clowdy from 13th December. To find out more, watch the video below or head to Mike’s website and blog.

Joe Scarffe

Joe is the Community and Marketing Manager and is currently finishing up a PhD in music at Birmingham Conservatoire and still hasn’t got over his addiction to coffee. He loves getting involved in crazy music projects and plays the bassoon, oboe, piano, recorder and guitar. He also makes lots of electronic music and loves collaborating. He sings too if you ask nicely and once shamefully sang as a backing singer for Will Young. When he’s not moaning about the state of the music industry or public transport in Manchester, he works with the Twine community and handles social media, the blog and partnerships with companies and institutions.
