Ready to enter the industry? Perhaps you want to be a writer? Animator? Sound design? Jobless college student? Work with 3DCG?
When will she give up and start seeking the company of men to satisfy her self worth?
You should drink more alcohol, Ema. That'll cheer you up.
>What is it, Tarou-san?
>Ah oh yeah that...my rent bill...
>Sure, same place and time, Tarou-san.
He graduated university and got into the industry that's why. Life long career for him to move up the ladder.
Someday he'll be a manager of a department.
>Good thing I put my two weeks in
Work towards CG movies and hand-drawing TV. A lot of commercials involve animation too.
Learning 3D is more valuable for a job but 2D is good too. Just a shame that 3D has become all-encompassing as the technology gets better, since I'm a2D animator.
You don't need a degree to be a production assistant. Aoi jumped straight in after high school, Midori is the only who went to uni.
No, you just apply. No credentials are needed to be a PA.
You will never be that special occasion. ;_;
Is sea urchin such a big deal?
What do you mean by disappointing?
well, if you're gonna do sound design, you don't really need this kind of degree. it helps, though.
with this, you'll understand things like waveforms and filters and generally the audible frequency spectrum. the rest of the things in this degree are overkill for sound design unless you want to make hardware synthesizers from scratch.
I just wonder how long it would take to land a job for a studio, theater, private company etc as a sound designer. Even with a degree, I wonder how much they would judge your personal work from your portfolio.
to be honest, openings for sound designers are rare because once a studio gets one, they'll usually hold on to them for a long time (if they are in any way decent, which most studios aren't particularly picky about)
also yeah your portfolio will be pretty much everything. they will practically look at nothing else.

>tfw you'll never surprise her at work with a bag of donuts and make her day
I should've never taken architecture and took up all these interesting national projects and should've just flown to Nippon to work as a low wage in betweener in an obscure studio.
I always found drawing enjoyable and therapeutic anyway.
>In the Audio Production program, you'll study audio recording, live sound reproduction, audio for video, and broadcast production. You'll record, mix, and produce audio in analog and digital formats while gaining an understanding of what it takes to succeed in the audio industry.
>Graduates are prepared to seek entry-level employment such as audio engineer, radio producer, assistant sound technician, promoter, or sound engineer.
Well I got a school near me. Still doing more research!
There should be more anime like shirobako. I actually kinda want to work now. I actually kinda want to do stuff now. I actually kinda have confidence now. What is this magic, am I too impressionable?
You'll never cuddle and watch Exodus together while having a few cold ones and doughnuts. Aoi will never excitedly point out the parts she helped with. Ever.
Beginner electronic musician here, making electronic music is a great way to learn those skills. I suggest you pirate a copy of FL or Ableton and get started now if you feel like trying it out.
Thank you I will friend. I was just thinking about something like that.
>Q: What are my chances of getting a job when I graduate?
>A: The job placement rate for students who completed this program in 2012-2013 is *%.

Heh although I'd be content in landing a career like this period. It can't be worse than my $20 an hour job I have currently.
>tfw education in my eastern-european country is absolute shit

It's hell. Sometimes I want to kill myself in hopes of being reincarnated in a better country.
I heard Oogasawara likes her tea with milk every now and then.
Have some advice for when you're producing music:
>Composition comes first. Learn some theory.
>Ear fatigue is your greatest enemy. Take breaks.
>Don't download 50 different synths and be weak at all of them, pick a few powerful synths and learn them well
>Tutorials are helpful, but the first thing you do if you have a question is hit F1 and consult the manual
>Let me say this again, READ THE FUCKING MANUAL
>Mixing is not about how many complex techniques and fancy plugins you use, it's about ensuring that EVERY ELEMENT IN THE SONG CAN BE HEARD CLEARLY. No more, no less.
>Don't worry if your songs sound like crap at first, the important thing is to finish your songs, even if it's absolute dogshit. You wont get better without finishing what you start.
>Finally, this shit takes time to learn, just put the hours in and you will see improvement.
Yes, that's the latest version.
If you're trying to get into audio engineering, you should dedicate more time to your mixing than anything else. That doesn't mean you should disregard the other aspects of production though. Also Ableton is a great DAW as well, it's simply a matter of which workflow you like best. Reason, Logic and Renoise are also DAWs you should try. But in the end you should pick one and learn it inside and out.
You're in luck anon, half of the worlds' best and renowned architects are Japanese.
You can make that as a reason to study architecture in Japan while you make in betweening as a sideline.
I'm a relatively beginner electronic musician. I have no BAs, this is just a hobby along with watching anime. Everything i know about audio engineering comes from mixing my own tracks.
I want to be a production assistant, seems pretty easy really as long as you're organised, just long hours . I've got my license so can go drifting while picking up frames and if I can take my table preloaded with anime into work I'm good to go.
Right now, I just want to make great music that people are willing to pay for and appreciate, but I may end up applying for an audio engineering job when I feel skilled enough to handle it.
I recommend just starting with Ableton, it's pretty easy to get into and it will take you a long way. Just get yourself a nice book or something like
and go through it to learn how everything works. I've actually been doing a lot more in Pro Tools these past few months but the learning curve is nasty. It is 100% required if you're going to be an audio professional though, but learn easier stuff first before working your way up to Pro Tools.
Ema slaving just to make ends meet. Meanwhile at Midori's place.
Oh nice. Either if it was you or the other Anon, but I shall "read the fucking manual".
Ah okay. You think you'd be set if you had another degree?
Right now I'm trying to figure out which schools that have the course are bogus and fluff and which ones are legit. I wonder if I should go into the city and visit sound production studios/etc and ask their opinions about the schools and ones they went to.
I'm >>117382619, I actually have a degree from NYU in Entertainment Business. I don't have a job yet, but at the same time I haven't been applying super hard since I want to compose music myself. Lately I've been studying a lot of music theory/comp and trying to immerse myself in that.
One important thing to remember: TAKE AN ENTERTAINMENT LAW COURSE. Without a doubt that was the most important and useful thing I did at college. Learn to read contracts. Learn to analyze agreements and the key parts that make them tick. Learn to protect yourself, because you'll fucking need it.
Also, do an internship with a production studio. They don't expect you to know that much and you learn a lot, and they're always eager to have a free set of extra hands.
not really. I just love music so much I want to make my own.
maybe if I did take up music production I'd be better off, but I'm all right with having a technical degree and picking this career path.
If you're looking to get into the music business, pick up "All You Need to Know About the Music Business" by Donald Passman. It's basically the industry bible, and it's really accessible. New versions come out often so it's up-to-date.
For film, a good book is "Dealmaking in the Film Industry." I hate Hollywood with a passion, and I wouldn't want to get involved with them beyond composing music for film, so I'm no expert though.
Long term I'd like to start my own business. I know it's a long shot, but I'd actually like to start a 2D animation company and lead an in-house sound design team. Then I'll hire people like Ema and pay them like decent humans.
I'll also hire lots of interns
Has anyone here read Crime & Punishment?
