Honouring the memory of our Josh

Josh was a student at Cirencester College and  started his music career on a placement basis with the London based but internationally renowned music venue The Ministry of Sound  and within a couple of years had become a video producer for the club. He worked hard had lots of fun and we were so proud of what he achieved in such a short time.   Before leaving the club he had made over 200 video clips.

Now nearly 3 years on and MoS are honouring Josh’s  memory  for the second time with an annual opportunity for 18 to 25-year-olds in Gloucestershire to win a month’s internship with the company.    Year Two of the scheme will be launched next Monday 8th December at The Spotlight, Cirencester College.    Please join us if you are a student, tutor, head of department, youth leader, musician, or anybody who has an interest in furthering young talent from Gloucestershire – its an opportunity not to be missed.
And of course we already have the experience of an intern to learn from.   Last years successful candidate, Lewis Murphy is our guest speaker at the launch at Cirencester College.  Lewis will describe to the audience  what being the first successful candidate has been like for him.“The people I met and the experiences I had are irreplaceable” he told us  “I can now look back at those times and reflect on how much of a career springboard it was by looking at where I am at now.” Lewis, a University of Gloucestershire student until earlier this year, now works for leading drum and bass label, Emcee Recordings.   Lewis will be showing some of his own work at the launch along with a few clips from the Josh Edmonds archive.

Young people in Gloucestershire will be invited to apply for this unique and prestigious opportunity in the Video and Music industries.   The successful applicant will gain a real insight into the workings of a major music brand, develop their own talent and get the chance to rub shoulders with the big names in popular music.

“Whatever aspect it is that you’re interested in The Josh Edmonds Memorial Scheme is a brilliant way for young talent to gain some experience of the music media industry.  So to anyone who is thinking of applying, just go for it, you’d be a fool not to.

MoS chief executive Lohan Presencer said: “Josh was a fantastically creative and enthusiastic member of the team at MoS. Hopefully this placement will give someone the same opportunities that Josh had and continue his memory.”

So the launch is on Monday evening 9th December at the Spotlight in Cirencester College. (Soft drinks, nibbles and a bit of alcohol will be served)    Applications for the scheme are open January through February 2014.   The selection process will take place in March 2014 and the successful candidate will be announced in April.
