In Love with the Process


SCROLL DOWN

In Love with the Process


IN LOVE WITH THE PROCESS is a new podcast and video series that goes deep into how to survive as a freelance artist. How do you stay INSPIRED & MOTIVATED? What are the TECHNIQUES that lead to your personal STYLE?  Join us and LEARN from others while building a network of life long clients and collaborators.

There is an old saying that it takes 10,000 hours of dedicated practice to become a master of anything, that it takes about 8 years before you are recognized for your work. If those statistics are right, then your main motivation has to be for something more than just the end goal. How do you make it through this long and uncertain journey?

You have to learn to fall in love with all of the little steps needed to create a film. You need to become obsessed with the countless techniques needed to shoot an amazing photo set. You need to love the life style you have chosen.

With over 16 years of experience as a filmmaker and photographer, and 9 years of running a successful production company, Mike Pecci has learned to fall in love with the process and wants to share it with you.

HOW TO COMPLETE A MUSIC VIDEO IN UNDER 10 DAYS.

Creating a music video for a national act is one of the most intense tasks for a modern day filmmaker.  Sure, the tools are more affordable, but declining budgets and insane turnaround times can turn your production into a sprint.

 

DO LIGHTING TESTS: A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT LIGHTING FOR LIVE MUSIC SESSIONS (PART 01)

All too often in our business, we are thrust into a job in which we either have no time for or cannot afford lighting tests. I find that these gigs force me to fall back on my old tricks and techniques. This can lead to the dangerous place of shooting stuff that all looks the same.

 

DO LIGHTING TESTS: A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT LIGHTING FOR LIVE MUSIC SESSIONS (PART 02)

Strap yourself in, and get ready for a really dorky article on lighting. I promise to get only slightly technical and hopefully open your eyes to the amazing differences you get from the various options available to both motion and still photography.
