Die-hard fans of every genre always dream of the chance of getting a behind-the-scenes look at their favorite artist. While not everyone has the ability to experience the day-to-day happenings first hand, we will occasionally get a taste through platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. There comes a time, however, when some of the best of the best team up and put out something that gives followers an inside look at something they would have never been able to see. This special time is actually happening.
Red Bull TV and the Austin City Limits Music Festival — two of the US’s most artist-driven communities — has teamed up with Skrillex — one of the most iconic and unique individuals in the world of electronic music — to bring you a fascinating look into life on the road, the creation of Skrillex’s spaceship stage set, and what it means to make the most of your creativity when following your dreams and passions.
Along with Sonny, Let’s Build A Spaceship closely follows a few of the team members who help with everything from lighting and video design to the execution of the spaceship. The short also shows Skrillex’s booking agent, Lee Anderson, who mentions how special of a client Sonny is since they both rose to success together.
Besides getting a chance to watch the spaceship being built, the short really shows how Sonny stands out from the rest of his peers in the electronic music world. Sonny knew from a very early age that school was not right for him. He needed to be constantly creative and surround himself with the support of other creative people.
