Hello again lovely Ultimators! Ben Scott here, the performer of Ultimatum writing to you directly. Today is a behind the scenes glimpse into how I went about building Ultimatum; I’ve had a lot of people asking how it all came together, so heck why don’t I just tell you?!
It all started with a phone call to my fantastic manager Iain, that went a little something along these lines.
A Phone Conversation in july 2018
Ben Scott: Hi Iain. So what do you think about an epic one-man show, where I do everything all at the same time while playing a bunch of absolute bangers and surrounded by synchronised lights show, smoke and pyrotechnics?
Iain: Erm hello Ben, yes sounds g- hold on…let me just…what??
Ben Scott: *lots of boring technical information, explaining how we’re now in a time where music technology is so powerful it must be harnessed and used to create things that people have never seen before*
Iain: Is this going to be like the time you said it would be a great idea If we have revolving ice-cream holders, or when you said “it’s about time people had shoe umbrellas?”
Ben Scott: Definitely not like those times I promise.
Iain: …OK let’s meet.
And so began my month-long studio exodus to figure out how on earth to make it happen.
After an awful lot of hard graft and banging my head against a desk, it came together, and surpassed all expectations the team and I had. The following photos are from the promotional video shoot!
