Simon Howlett Joins Rapids!
Welcome to our newest team member, “a social entrepreneur, marketing specialist, graphic designer and award winning film maker with a passion for innovation for the greater good, I am very excited to be part of the Rapids team and to help realized its vision and potential in both the digital sphere and the real world.”
Rapids Network is about to enter a new era, but far from everything you may know, with Simon on the team it can be said with confidence Rapids is going to create a real upheaval in the blockchain space.
How Will Rapids Grow?
Simon is tasked with building strategic partnerships for future business growth, bridging the gap between Rapids customer and product.
Simon comes with a wealth of experience in the filming Industry, and has spent the last four years directing Carmarthen Bay Film Festival BAFTA Short Film, BAFTA Cymru and IMDb qualifying festival in the heart of Wales UK.
In May, Rapids is heading to Wales and will be attending the Festival. CBFF has gone from strength to strength over the years. From their first festival in 2012, they have gone from 35 submissions to well over 1000 from 70 plus countries for our 2020 festival. Not only have the submissions increased over the years, but the number of filmmakers and festival patrons attending has as well and at this time Rapids will be demonstrating one of our newest developments in and around the event.
Rapids Network offers huge potential for film creators like Simon, such as the use of NFTs and at the same time we’ll be exploring the possibilities of a decentralized ticketing system on the Rapids Blockchain for future events and more.
We are so thrilled and excited to be adding Simon to our team. We are delighted to have an enthusiastic professional with a creative mind among us. With Simon’s help, we’re going to be releasing and exploring some pretty exciting stuff this year. Can’t wait to show you all…!
