As you guys know Motone is about staging events in Rarotonga and the Pacific. We are honest about what can be acheived and know what can be delivered and more inportantly what can't.
In the events and festival game you are far better off knowing your limitations than having dellusions that you can deliver huge events when you don't have the skilled labour nor the toys and venues to make them happen. So I have had some really out there conversations with some people who although have the best intentions and want to see big events here don't seem to grasp that we need to upskill our labour force, focus on the events we currently have building on those and fund when you have the dollars people who are succeeding and delivering instead of dicking them around. Yeah can you hear me..........you see I have a propsoal in for a small amount of $ to bring a tech expert in to the country and some equip to stage a show in October - yes DIVAS and do you think I can get an answer about whether I can get support to run a workshop for our local techs, provide worldclass sound at our gig and showcase to our tourists that we can hold the best events here!!! Well apparently not!!!!
