No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
Life seems to go on without any effort, when I am filled with music.
There are three stages of Music Production.
The composition stage is the process of generating musical ideas. The composition process involves creating melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic ideas. Choices made in this stage define a song genre, vibe and style.
Try not to get bogged down with technical aspects like sound design and mixing. The goal is to work fast and generate fundamental elements that work together musically.
2. SOUND DESIGN AND PRODUCTION
The art of sound design is a cornerstone of electronic music production. The sound design stage involves synthesis, sampling and sound manipulation using effects and production techniques.
Filling in the arrangement with sound effects, transition effects, fills and other ear candy. Editing samples in creative ways. For example, reversing audio, stretching audio, chopping up samples, pitching sounds, applying creative effects, and more. Creatively using audio effects like filtering, delay, reverb, chorus, saturation, etc. Applying automation and modulation to control instruments and sound effects. Fixing issues that will cause problems in the mixing stage. For example, adding fades to audio clips to remove clicks or pops, adjusting the timing or quantization of tracks, and anything else problematic. Making final creative decisions and preparing for the mixing stage. For example, deleting unnecessary tracks, making final arrangement tweaks, bouncing MIDI tracks to audio, and creating stems for mixing etc.
3. MIXING & MASTERING
Audio mixing is the process of combining multiple layers of audio to make one final track. The mixdown process makes sure all the parts in a song sound good together.
Mixing involves balancing levels, panning sounds, equalizing, compressing, harmonics enhancing, fixing problems, and adding various effects. Mixing also involves automation, editing sounds in creative ways, and giving instruments their own space in the mix. The goal is to sculpt a balanced and unified arrangement ready for mastering.
The mastering stage involves a series of subtle audio processes including equalization, compression, saturation, stereo enhancement, and limiting. The purpose of mastering is to balance the stereo mix, make all the elements sound cohesive, and to reach commercial loudness. It also ensures playback optimization across all speaker systems and media formats.
Audio mastering is the final step in the music production process. It’s the post-production process of taking an audio mix or album and preparing it for distribution.
CREATE YOUR OWN VISUAL STYLE… LET IT BE UNIQUE FOR YOURSELF AND YET IDENTIFIABLE TO OTHERS.
There are four stages of Film Production.
The start of a project varies but generally will begin with development of a script, be that an existing script, a book or a brief story outline. Development may also start with a Director and/or Script writer pitching an idea to a Producer.
This is the phase where you would narrow down the options of the production. It is where all the planning takes place before the camera rolls and sets the overall vision of the project. Pre-production also includes working out the shoot location and casting. The Producer will now hire a Line Manager or Production Manager to create the schedule and budget for the film.
During this phase it is key to keep planning ahead of the daily shoot. The primary aim is to stick to the budget and schedule, this requires constant vigilance. Communication is key between location, set, office, production company and distributors - in short, all parties involved.
This stage starts when Production ends. The various steps of post-production consists of reviewing the footage, assembling and movie - editing. There will be contributions such as Color Correction, Music and Sound Design. The picture will now be locked and delivery elements will be created.
