Barcardi Ad, Major Lazer & Music Videos – Dynamite Continues To Make Moves!

Vincentian Soca artist Dynamite recently wrapped up a three-dimensional visit to Costa Rico where he shot a Bacardi ad, was a part of a Major Lazer music video and also shot a music video for an unreleased record.

Speaking on his experience, the “Brave” artist said it was an eye-opening one, as it was the biggest production he has been involved in so far. It gave him an opportunity to see how much effort was put into just getting the perfect take after many shots. He was especially impressed with how all the departments involved worked together as a seamless unit.

“There’s the wardrobe sections where they prepare all the cast, the makeup department, security, lighting, director and main cast preparation, people there analyzing to make sure everything is as how it is scripted out … we shoot for 3 days on a straight …”

He went on to say that the experience has made him consider taking acting seriously in the future.
“In the end, it showed me the importance of a team, teamwork is important in anything… I’m really humbled by the experience. Acting would be something I consider in the future as well.”

Speaking of the future, when asked who he’d like to work with, in the future, Dynamite replied, “…People who’re really passionate and put their heart and soul in their craft, whether it be locally, regionally or internationally…”

SMALL PLANE CRASH REPORTED IN DOMINICA

SMALL PLANE CRASH REPORTED IN DOMINICA
A small private aircraft with four persons on board is reported to have crashed in the mountains somewhere in the area of the Melville Hall airport in Dominica.

Reports say the craft traveling to Guadeloupe from Martinique reported to air traffic control at the Melville Hall airport that they were having difficulties and requested clearance to land.

The aircraft was given clearance but went down in the Melville Hall Valley west of the runway before reaching the airport.

Search parties have been dispatched in the very mountainous and remote area. We are awaiting reports of their findings

It’s Coming…The New Family of EC Polymer Notes

The ECCB will put EC polymer banknotes into circulation in June 2019, commencing with the new $50, followed by the $100, $20 and $10 in August/September and the $5 in 2020. 

Paper and polymer banknotes will be in circulation at the same time. That is, in conducting your business you may receive both polymer and paper banknotes.

What is polymer?

Polymer banknotes are produced from a thin, transparent and flexible plastic film made from polypropylene.

Why the transition from paper to polymer?

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank decided to change the material on which the EC banknotes are printed from paper to polymer because polymer banknotes are:

CLEANER:  Polymer banknotes stay cleaner than paper notes as they are resistant to dirt and moisture.

SAFER: Polymer banknotes can incorporate advanced security features which make them more difficult to counterfeit.

STRONGER: Polymer banknotes last at least two and a half times longer than paper notes. This also makes them more environmentally friendly.
