EP. 157 - Aaran McKenzie (While She Sleeps / Film Maker)

Know Your Worth. Professional film maker, heavy metal bassist and mental health advocate, Aaran McKenzie, is our guest on Episode 157 of Sappenin' Podcast! The While She Sleeps creative takes time to open up on his life behind the camera, Sleeps Society and some unforgettable life opportunities. In this conversation, we discuss how their Patreon model has created a new blueprint for the music industry, the reaction after its first anniversary, promoting a whole album campaign around so much uncertainty, launching his Aaran McKenzie Films business, shooting music videos for Sylosis, Havelock and Raiders, the ins and outs of videography, pre-production vs shots, angels and location, wanting to be the next Jackass, his mental health transformation, creative safe spaces, the beautiful face of Simon Neil (Biffy Clyro), having a Limp Bizkit moment, strange emails, flamethrowers, future plans and more! Turn it up and join Sean and Morgan to find out Sappenin' this week!
