The Old Model vs. The New Model
Artists have been programmed to think in one specific way; in the old model, the only way to become successful is through a record label, producers, and managers.
Learn how in today's digital age, you can open up your own doors rather than relying on others to do so for you.
Your job as a creator today involves every aspect of content production. Learn how to change your mindset to one of an entrepreneur and how restructuring and managing your daily schedule can lead to a greater chance of success. As well as how redefining your idea of success can help you to understand where you are now, where you want to be, and how you are going to get there.
If you intend to build a career as a creator, you are going to have to work extremely hard at it. There are no shortcuts. To guarantee you the highest chance of success, you must love the process. Discover that when you're doing something you are truly passionate about, your job doesn't feel like work.
There's so much to learn from your favorite creators by analyzing what worked for them and what didn't. There is so much value in learning from the experiences of other people. Especially in today's marketplace. Learn how the online infrastructure is catered to creators and why there's no better time to be living your passion in the digital age than today.
To successfully create a living online, you must do what you love! Your content can range from music to podcasts, to vlogs, to animation, and everything in between. Learn why there is no limit to the content that you dream up when you create uplifting, family-friendly content that appeals to fandoms.
“Good artists copy. Great artists steal.” - Picasso
There is no shame in copying what is currently working. There is a preconceived notion that everybody has; that it’s wrong to benefit from other people’s ideas. It’s okay to combine ideas and put them together to make them your own. Some of the most prominent influencers have found their success by copying other people.
The remix strategy is broken up into three basic elements copying transforming and combining. If we take a look at Starwars; George Lucas copied, transformed, and combined different projects to make his film. Don't let the "I have to be original" belief inhibit you from starting.
Copyright is the right to make copies.
Fair use can be defined as quoting brief excerpts of copyright material verbatim for purposes such as research, teaching, reporting, and criticism but as you know it is a slippery slope. Peter and Kirby shed some light on what to look out for.
"It always goes back to stealing somebody's idea". -Peter Hollens
The best way to set yourself up for success is to remove the option of saying, “I can’t get this done.” If you do everything yourself, overhead costs are low. Not being able to afford the work to get it done is no longer a valid excuse. Learn how to eventually find out what you’re good at, what you’re bad at, and when it's time to hire out.
If you want people to start listening to you, you have to create all the time. There is so much saturation of videos online in order to break through the noise, you need to release content constantly. You don’t have to make everything perfect, and you won’t! Art is objective! Keep in mind, the one thing you make that you don’t think is of high quality could be of high value to someone else.
Mastering your audio is the last step before you are release ready. If you're not confident in your mastering skills try to outsource to someone that has the experience to ensure your final product is the best it can be. If you are doing it yourself you need to use a limiter plugin to finalize your product.
Everything with a screen has a resolution. It is measured in pixels, high definition is 16 by 9 (1080p) this is the industry standard. 4K is the next step since it takes up a lot of space this is not for the beginner. 1080p is good enough to start out and eventually work your way up to 4K.
