Local Filmmaker & Musician Need Votes in Local Contest

Local Filmmaker, Shelby Wilson & Musician Jason Goodman (thisisgoodman), are looking for support in votes as they compete in a Telus driven competition called Storyhive. They have the chance to win a $10,000 grant from Telus to make a music video for thisisgoodman. Their project is called Need U and its a beautiful project that touches base on how love transcends to the afterlife. It’s about finding the silver lining within grief, death and afterlife with love and how its always there and that we can cherish it.
If Jason and Shelby were to win the Storyhive grant they would like to make a donation to the Surrey Hospice Society which is a local non profit organization that provides social, emotional, and spiritual support for individuals and their loved ones as they face a life-ending experience.

Shelby & Jason attended  high school together at Ecole Panorama Ridge, and have been best friends since they were 13 years old. They are 24 years old now, and still love to collaborate on projects together!

Jason is Surrey born and raised, who DJ’s at local parties, and produces his own songs on the side. He predominately does upbeat Dance music. Jason has supported many of Shelby’s film by doing sound design work and music for them. His music is full of emotion to evoke all sorts of feelings for his listeners.

Voting runs from October 15th to October 18th 2018, when it closes at midnight.

Voting is daily, and anyone, anywhere can vote once for the project on any device! It’s as simple as clicking the vote button on their project page, Need U and casting a vote!
