Blog Post – Music Video Making

This is a very timely guest post I think.

As you may have noticed, here at Pierless Music we’ve been featuring quite a few new local music videos recently. So, it seemed like the right time to feature a post all about video making and some of the myths and realities about it. And one written by somebody who deals with music video making on a day to day basis too.

The post was written by Tai Campbell from EPiK Music Videos in London: http://www.epikmusicvideos.com

If you’re in a local band and are thinking about making a video to help showcase one of your songs, there is some great advice within that post.

And this is the kind of video that EPik Music Videos can help you with:

The Voice

Don’t get worried, I’m not about to start going on about TV talent, or lack of talent, shows. But, I came across this article the other day and although it isn’t right up to date it is still very relevant.

All singers need to make sure that they look after their voice, especially if they hope to forge some sort of musical career. Or even if they just want to carry on playing local gigs for years to come.

Our voice is something that we all tend to take for granted. But when it happens to be the thing that we use to either help us pursue a career, or to do something that gives us pleasure, it needs to be looked after.

The article here gives some tips in how to protect your voice. It’s not the definitive guide, but it certainly gives some good pointers. There’s never a substitute for getting professional advice, but this is better than nothing.

It could even be used for anyone who uses their voice a lot, DJs and radio presenters for example. I’ve noticed myself that when I do a lot of radio presenting, or compering, my voice suffers. Maybe I need to take this on board as well then? Do you too?
