Beat Makers

BEAT MAKERS, a 90 minute independent documentary, charts the never ending hustle of up and coming as well as seasoned producers. Filmed inside their in-home studios, these hungry musicians aspire to obtain more equipment, sell their hot tracks, and, of course, make a name for themselves in the competitive music industry.

The movie follows a plethora of track masters in various stages of their careers including newcomer Justin “J Dot” Moyd, a 23 year college student who nears graduation, as he assembles his production center, works with aspiring recording artists and puts together his first professional demo package. We also see a group of savvy producers combine their collective efforts called ‘Battery Five’ discuss their trials and tribulations and their relentless pursuit to create a “movement” and be recognized in such a tumultuous business.

The film provides a behind the scenes forum for composers to get a lot off their chests and discuss their unbridled passion for making music all with a steadfast belief that the ‘next’ track will be the one to take them to the ‘next’ level!

Still Kicking!

I haven’t posted in while. Not because I don’t love you all but because I’ve been so busy. Between illustrating a childrens book, designing characters for an online cartoon series and creating an 12x3ft hand painted banner, I haven’t had the time to post. To heavy my load, I’m now a full time graphic communications student.  Posts may not come as frequently as they have been in recent weeks, but i do plan to share all of my educational experiences and learnings through this blog.

So Nothing too heavy here, I just wanted to let folks know that tanner is still alive and still apart of the WordPress community. Here’s a couple of new photos to show that I’m still kicking!

I don’t have a srl camera but I blurred the backgrounds of these photos in Gimp to give them an srl look. I will download a screen shot application, and my next post will be a tutorial on how to achieve this slr affect in Gimp. Sound Okay? Okay. Enjoy!
