Every get stuck not being able to start something you need to do and don't know why? Ever wonder what the sound design process looks like for someone else? Ever fall down the stairs in the dark?! All these answers and more on the back side of the play button.
Now that you have a portfolio, what do you do with it? How do you wave it over the fire so people come see what your smoke signals are all about? Social media, of course! We go over how useful it really is, what it's like to not need it, and how Ryan and I got into this mess.
Portfolios aren't just for graphic designers anymore! We talk about how to gather up your goods to shake at the menfolk when trying to break into the industry, as well as site-building alternatives to WordPress that will help keep your hair in your head where it belongs.
We kick things off with the basics by defining sound effects as we see them, discussing thematic sound design, envelopes, and mindset. Plus tons of baseball references for some reason in this short but sweet first step towards podcasting domination!
