It’s no secret, we’re big fans of transatlantic producer and style icon Mark Ronson here at Esquire. It’s no secret, mainly because he’s graced the cover of our October issue for the past two years consecutively. You’ll understand then, why we’re so excited about our latest Ronson-related competition.
We’ve teamed up with American Express® to offer three readers a pair of tickets to an intimate Mark Ronson gig and red carpet screening of a new short film at London’s Abbey Road Studios on November 25.
The event, hosted by another friend of Esquire, Rick Edwards, marks the unveiling of ‘Epic’, a short film celebrating the power of live music to inspire and entertain directed by Ridley Scott Associates. The film, commissioned by American Express, portrays a music concert as viewed through the eyes of a cast of colourful characters, interspersed with 21 images entered into American Express and Channel 4’s ‘My Live Story’ competition.
The winning entries, selected by a panel including Ridley Scott Associates Director Toby Dye and Ronson himself (who collaborated on the soundtrack), each depict the way in which gigs can be so much more than just music. The entries can be seen at channel4.com/mylivestory.
My Live Story was created in celebration of American Express’ award-winning Preferred Seating programme, which provides Cardmembers with exclusive access to a host of music and cultural events throughout the year. For the latest news, information and exclusive offers visit amex.co.uk/music
