Ready to enter the industry? Perhaps you want to be a writer? Animator? Sound design? Jobless college student? Work with 3DCG?

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.

I would love to write anime for a living. Shit would be fun as hell.

I hope he gets reputation as being absolute joke of a manager, and gets so much shit on net that he will never dare to look at viewer feedback again.

He isn't directing shit now, he's a useless script writer until he finished the last episode.

tfw going to school for animation

I'm going to suffer for the rest of my life and create nothing I want to create once I get out of school!
>>
>>117371896
wats an animation degree even get you in america. All there is is CG movies and a some hand drawn ones on tv
>>
>>117371979
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.

Don't even mention it. Umetsu's reactions during those weeks would make for a pretty funny dark comedy show.

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.

>>117376326
What do you mean by disappointing?

because i don't have a degree 'dedicated' to sound design.

I think i´m gonna start watching this, any good subs, or should i watch raw?
>>
>>117377024
I think it's fine. I'm gonna research that degree thanks
>>
>>117377177
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.

>>117377088
Honestly, I have found HS to be perfectly acceptable.

>>117379075
>>117379075
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.

And then there's the sound engineer path. I also thought about a career in the medical field when it came to audio.

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.

>>117381553
Yes, that's the latest version.
>>
>>117381596
Than Ableton?

>>117381610
Wonderful advice that I'm archiving for later. So for school, will they care a lot of my music sucks but will be glad that I completed the project?
>>
>>117381698
I haven't really tried any other DAW (Digital Audio Workstation, that's what they're called).
>>
>>117381698
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.

>>117380901
>you will never life in a small japanese apartment with Aoi

>>117381743
>>117381893
Oh neat and I'll keep that in mind. Do you guys have BAs in the field?
>>
>>117382021
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.
>>
>>117366254

>>117382219
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.
>>
>>117382021
I'm this guy.
>>117376326
I download all sorts of music in my free time.
>>
>>117381698
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

http://www.amazon.com/Ableton-Live-Power-Comprehensive-Guide/dp/1285455401/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416814361&sr=8-1&keywords=ableton+live+9+book

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.

>>117382521
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.
>>
>>117383056
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.
>>
>>117383056
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.
>>
>>117383140
>TAKE AN ENTERTAINMENT LAW COURSE
oh yeah, I definitely need to do this.
>>
>>117383190
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
