I love film making. I love making people laugh, cry, or dance. When I approach a video, in all honesty, the only thing I want is to create an emotional connection with the audience. To move someone at the other end of line, is the challenge that motivates every shot, every frame, every cut. Everything comes back to the emotion. I want to move people, and make them feel the feelings that I feel, when I look at the world around me, be that a remarkable DJ set, a raving crowd, a beautiful sunset, a gorgeous human being, or a flicker of a moment of a tiny split second.
I produced this video for the launch of Visionquest Thirteen, the 2013 world tour of the Visionquest collective: Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss, Shaun Reeves, and Ryan Crosson.
The project began life last summer in Ibiza, when Seth Troxler asked me to lens the Visionquest party at DC10. The event was so surreal, that it inspired me to create a twisted short film.

One of underground house’s most exciting producers – the Berlin-based DJ and live act known as SIS – is now being managed by Terry Church.
SIS previously has been named Producer of the Year (2008) by Germany’s Groove Magazine, who also awarded him Track of the Year that year for his club hit ‘Nesrib’.
SIS was the first artist besides Ricardo Villabos to release a track on the Chilean’s hot vinyl label Sei Es Drum, with the magnificent cut ‘Trompeta’. Raveline Mag have also previously named SIS their ‘Newcomer of the Year’.
Terry Church has been working closely with SIS on the launch of his new album ‘Confidance’ (due for release April 17 2013), and is currently masterminding the launch of SIS’ new party concept CIRCLE in Ibiza this summer.

The London-based start up that I work for – JustGo Music – has just launched a whole suite of marketing and social media tools for DJs, producers and electronic music label owners.
There’s a Publisher tool that helps you schedule and manage posts to Facebook & Twitter – critical if you want to build a big engaged online fanbase.
There’s an Upload tool that allows you to simultaneously upload music to Soundcloud and YouTube at the same time (it will even convert your audio file and image into a playable YouTube clip!).
The Competitions tool will help you build a big downloadable email database of fans.
And last but not least, you can see Stats for all of your social media channels in one place. Track followers and growth on Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud & Youtube.

I recently joined a new Shoreditch-based electronic music start up company called JustGoMusic.com, as Creative & Editorial Director.
Amongst other very cool things, the website offers powerful social media marketing tools to DJs, producers and electronic music labels. The tools are incredibly useful for anyone looking to build a brand, a profile or a company in electronic music.
To accompany JustGoMusic’s social media marketing tools, I’ve started a blog for JustGoMusic that offers daily social media tips, DJ marketing tools, and insightful interviews with industry players to help educate DJs about how best to promote themselves. Check it out here.
On September 13 2012, two rival club nights in Ibiza joined hands for a one-off party across two of the island’s biggest venues. The historic collaboration was between Cadenza & ENTER., Ushuaia & Space, and Richie Hawtin & Luciano. Video by Terry Church. Originally posted on YouTube.
Rock In Rio festival is one of the world’s biggest music festivals. Whilst Rio de Janeiro is the festival’s spiritual home, Rock In Rio events have taken place in Madrid and Lisbon too.
This year’s Rock In Rio in Madrid featured DJs and dance music. Chilean DJ Luciano headlined the main stage. Here is a video from Terry Church, which highlights Luciano’s DJ performance and backstage experience at the festival.
This video imagines a party where all of these DJs played back to back: Laurent Garnier, Radio Slave, DJ Sneak, Uner, Maya Jane Coles, Derrick Carter, Franck Roger, Stacey Pullen and Luciano. Based on highlights from Luciano’s weekly parties at Ushuaia Ibiza during June and July 2012.
On a Monday morning in Ibiza, Luciano’s Vagabundos can still be found partying somewhere on the island. These secret Vagabundos afterparties take place sporadically at Ushuaia Ibiza. Video by Terry Church, originally published on YouTube: http://goo.gl/ynDRV
