Do what you love they say but business is business and it needs to be done with great care and expertise. My work is my brand.
I make records for other artists at a commericial level. My ability to write, record, arrange, mix and master most styles of music, gives me a unique perspective on producing music that can be heard and that can compete at a commercial level.
Working on a video timeline, is pretty much the same as recording a song. The story is everything and the film or pictures and text combined with moving images are just another set of paints in the world of creation.
I get impatient with having to wait for somebody else to put together a live show. We are new to the market, but have taken a networking approach to putting forth a great experience for fans, artists, venues and often charities where music brings us all together as a community.
The budget you have will buy you what you have put out. The greatest creators in the world often thrive with limits and restrictions, but they too find a way around the budget, its often seen as making something look easy. Precision, execution, quality come from experience in craft.
