Description

Independent artists are thriving in the modern music industry, creating and branding their own music, and developing rich concentrations of fans. Indie artists are progressively securing positions within mainstream music

Independent artists are thriving in the modern music industry, creating and branding their own music, and developing rich concentrations of fans. Indie artists are progressively securing positions within mainstream music while also upholding individuality. With technology advancements, to include self-recording technology, wearable devices, and mobile operating systems, independent artists are able to extend their reach to a variety of audiences. Social media platforms' progression has further catalyzed artists' capability of growth, as they have the capacity to personalize marketing content, develop loyal fan-bases, and engage directly with potential consumers. Artists are increasingly fabricating their own unique spaces in an industry that was formerly controlled by conventions. This thesis involves the production of a three-song extended play, and ascertains how to effectively capitalize on the wide array of modern marketing platforms.

Production's Role in a Journalism Education

The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications stands as a "gold standard" of journalism education throughout the country. In my time at the school though, I found that some aspects in the whole of the curriculum were missing. I as well as several other friends became interested in production and the technical side of things. This seemed to be the direction we wanted to go and soon realized this played a crucial part in journalism. Although there is a studio production class and a studio production track through the immersive Cronkite News program, there is not much in between. This inspired me to take a look deeper into production skills and their place within a journalism education. The project is split into three main sections that dive into the ideas of teaching production skills and technical skills to journalism students and whether or not it is valuable. The first part is the background of the project and why this project came to be. The background section explores the inspiration for the project. The project continues with a look at job statistics and where the industry currently sits. This continues into the final section that contains personal stories and interviews with professionals in the field. This is a critical section to back up claims made through research and evaluation. There is a lot of personal experience and non-traditional research done through this project, but the assertions and conclusions made are clear. Through job statistics, personal stories, and interviews with professionals, this project examines how production could be taught in a traditional journalism program. These stories show that a journalism curriculum may not be the best place to teach production in depth, but that it still is an incredibly important part of the journalism world as a whole.

Production in Journalism Schools and Future Careers

A core tenet of production can be summarized that if you are doing your job right, no one will notice. But this can come back to count against production in that when things go right, then people think that it is easy to do and therefore to replace. And as production is something unseen by the camera, it can often be lost or overlooked in favor of those seen and presented by the camera. This project was motivated from my own interest in media production and my experience at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in classes and available opportunities. And due to my own interests in production, an objective of this thesis and process was to find how my own school compared to other big journalism schools and if my interests had a possibility of turning into a viable career. This thesis focuses on broadcast media production in primarily three areas: news, sports, and entertainment. 10 different media production professionals were interviewed to get first-hand knowledge of production in these chosen media areas and journalism schools. My thesis breaks into three main topics that cover a range of aspects of production. The first topic focuses on the effects of developing technology and funding concerns. The second topic is on how production is taught or not in journalism schools. And the third topic looks at job possibilities for production. Through interviews with professionals, personal histories and job statistics, this thesis aims to show that production should be taught in journalism schools, as it is still a viable career path with possibilities beyond just the typical news newscast.

Binaural beat therapy is one acoustics technique used in music; a technique utilized in the music most people listen to when they have trouble sleeping or concentrating. The binaural beats technique, along with other therapeutic methods in music, have always fascinated me. This topic is something that I’ve wanted to research for some time. So for this creative project I want to challenge myself. I am going to learn how to produce music intended for musical therapy. I’ll be implementing methods based on my research. I hope to produce a piece of music that can help others. My goal is to create a song that has the potential to be added to the vast online library of therapeutic music.

"Red Fox Does Not Move" Private Placement Memorandum and Production Binder

Executive Summary: Luke Armistead and his crew are seeking investments in the form of cash or assets (i.e. shooting location, drivable car, film equipment, etc.) in order to make “Red Fox Does Not Move”, a short action-thriller. “Red Fox Does Not Move” tells the story of two government agents seeking revenge against Domino Mancini, a violent mob boss. This short film is meant to target U.S. adults, especially those who use YouTube. The action-thriller genre is popular in the U.S. among adults, and since an overwhelming majority of adults use YouTube, the video hosting website is a good place to distribute the film after the private showings. In order to build anticipation for the film, a vlog series detailing production of the short film will be produced in tandem with the film. “Red Fox Does Not Move” is planned to be distributed via film festival (e.g. Sundance, Cannes, AFA, etc.) as well as select local theaters holding local short film showings/mini festivals.

This creative project thesis involves electronic music composition and production, and it uses some elements of algorithmic music composition (through recurrent neural networks). Algorithmic composition techniques are used here as a tool in composing the pieces, but are not the main focus. Thematically, this project explores the analogy between artificial neural networks and neural activity in the brain. This project consists of three short pieces, each exploring these concept in different ways.
