So after contacting the DJ that my friend passed me onto, chances of meeting up were slim. It was hard to organise a time and because we wanted to film and get footage early, I decided to contact another DJ. It is always going to be risky investing time in only one contact in case that falls through.
I was introduced to another DJ by my good friend at uni. He passed me onto him and I shot him a message. Quick replies, promising plans and it all started happening!
