Reverse Engineering The Profit Motive

It’s been my experience that making less money on a more consistent basis leads to making more money.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Profit_motive – “In economics, the profit motive is the motivation of firms that operate so as to maximize their profits. Mainstream microeconomic theory posits that the ultimate goal of a business is to make money. Stated differently, the reason for a business’s existence is to turn a profit.”

The reason why people work is to get paid.

Yes, there are some people who work so they have a sense of actual purpose in life.

Other than that, people don’t like working for free. For that, they could be sleeping or screwing for free.

Too much “Profit Motivation” isn’t necessarily a good thing for your business. Continue reading “Reverse Engineering The Profit Motive”

Scripting A Ghetto Crime Web Series

While researching ghetto crime web shows for an upcoming project, I noticed several stereotypes that I hope we’ll be able to avoid.

So a good friend of mine pitched me an idea for a ghetto crime web series which I’ll probably edit and also co-write with him and whomever else he selects to make this project happen.

I think he has a great idea for a fresh take on the genre, so I’m excited about and interested in the project.

Mix Engineering 101

Here are the notes to my “Mix Engineering 101” video:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mix_engineer => A mix engineer, also referred to as “mixing engineer”, is a person who, once all instruments, voices, and sounds, etc., have been recorded, creates what is called the final version (also known as “final mix” or “mixdown”) of a song, hence the term “mix engineer”.

He or she ‘blends’ or ‘mixes’ the elements of the recorded piece together, to achieve a good balance of the instrumental and vocal volume, as well their frequency contents, while also deciding other properties such as pan positioning, effects, and so on.

Drums

The drums come from Logic’s “Ultrabeat” drum machine that comes stock with Logic 9.. In fact, everything that I use in this video comes stock with Logic Express (I don’t need Logic Pro because I already own Final Cut Studio, which includes Soundtrack Pro). Continue reading “Mix Engineering 101”

Save Your Pennies, Then Hire Professionals

I had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine yesterday. He’s a photographer, and I’m a video editor, so we kind of do the same thing, but not really.

He was talking about how, as technology increases, more and more people are calling themselves photographers because they own cameras.

Yes.. People have been owning cameras since cameras were invented, however, none of these people promoted themselves as professionals. They were hobbyists, at best. Mostly, they were civilians that happened to have spent some of their money on a camera.

At this point, people own cameras that take pictures on a level of quality that can be used in actors’ portfolios, wedding albums, or even as stills in television productions.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily mean that any of them are GOOD at what they do. Continue reading “Save Your Pennies, Then Hire Professionals”
