It’s a new year; and new projects, challenges, and goals await you.
And while we’re on the topic of new frontiers, lately we can’t stop talking about how important video has become to musicians. No, it isn’t just about making a music video for the one single off your upcoming album; it’s about so much more than that. With video, you can help carve your own visual narrative, create extra content and deeper value, get more personal and engage closer with new and continuing fanbases, etc.
So here’s a challenge: why not take a few weeks and work with a verified professional video producer to tack on some vital new skills, new perspectives, and a whole new approach to your music career…
…And who better to do that with than a video producer who is also a decorated music producer and audio engineer. That person is Brooks Palin, and you’ve got the opportunity to work with him right away in a personalized four-week learning program like some of the ones listed below. Brooks is a video editor, photographer, and music producer based in Los Angeles, California. He’s the Chief Editor for Even Tide Productions and has been making cinematic music for 10+ years under the name Buruks.
“I’m passionate about bringing creative ideas to life. I use video, photography, and music to tell my story and love helping others find their own artistic voice.”
