Whoawhoawhoa man. I said I would produce their album to the best of my abilities, but considering my low-fi recording equipment, i feel like $20/h is totally ripping them off. But its what they want I guess, and if I'm making hundreds of dollars off musically ignorant middle schoolers, then I am okay with this.

But you're doing it anyway for your own gain. That's bullying pretty much. It's common courtesy to inform people if they're working against their own interest. I would have made some bad choices if not for some more experienced musicians telling me that I was spending more than I needed.

Tell them that they're getting demo quality, so they might as well just record a demo. Then, you wouldn't be such a dick.

Also, if you feel like you're ripping them off, then lower your fee. Say, $15/hour.

Wouldn't you be more okay with telling them what to expect and make it work for everyone and make eveyrone happy? Obviously not, which makes you a dick.

That pretty much sums up everything I hate about producers/DJs/electronic-based musicians today. If all the more experienced guitarists here acted the same way towards newbies as you, this website would've flopped years ago.

Such ridiculous, unfounded elitism.

We'd happily help him out over at the recording forum if he asked... but he hasn't... we're really rather nice over there.

If you've ever read any of TS's other threads, you'd probably understand why I'm being this way. The guy, whilst he may have good intentions, is a bit of an idiot.

In what way does producers also tip in to DJ's and EDM artists?

You sound like a closet elitist to me.

Fair enough. Admittedly I've not been here in a while so I'm not familiar with the TS's other work, ha. Apologies if I sounded a tad harsh, having studied Music at university I just have a lot of experience of people in this field of music being overly elitist about newbies. Much like that feeling you get as a beginner guitarist walking into a guitar shop and everyone else is looking down their nose at you. I've never understood that, I hated it.

A lot of EDM artists started out as DJs and the genre in itself is largely focused around production. I don't understand how linking the three is so far-fetched to you.

You're just confronting me for the sake of confronting me.

Again, arguing for the sake of arguing. I can certainly think of more EDM artists who also DJ than those who don't.

Yeah but you said that they mainly DJ first and then move in to production. Which simply isn't the case nowadays. DJ'ing after producing is just a way to make money.

I said a lot DJ first. A lot do DJ first. I can include myself in that group.

My initial point was that DJs, producers and EDM artists can be linked. I've proved that is often the case, I never once said it was true for all.

Again, you're just nitpicking and exaggerating unimportant parts of my argument in an attempt to save face.

Why are we even arguing? Can we please just drop this now.

I'm in a room of 20 EDM artists right now and not one of us started DJ'ing first. And I'm arguing for the sake of arguing because my lecture is quite dull. I don't know why you're arguing.

... You know I want to be a professional film maker someday. I scripted, filmed and directed this short film by myself. Believe what you want, but it was all me.


If I were you, I wouldn't own up to having written, filmed and directed it, especially if you want to be a "professional filmmaker". I assume you use those terms very loosely as there was almost no writing or directing done.

Dude I told everyone what to do and what to say. I also filmed it. It took like 10 takes to film the movie because nobody would take it seriously.

No one took it seriously anyway. 95% of people probably watched it and were laughing at how cheesy it was and how bad the acting was.

I don't support ripping off the kids, and if you go through with this I agree with the notion that you should do it to the best of your ability.

But did anyone else read the post of their band name? As Her Body Burns, woof.

Yeah, you told everyone what to say, which is what a script would do anyway, so not directing.

The fact that it took you 10 takes to film the movie (which dosen't make a whole lot of sense since theres a couple of cuts and stuff) that shows you don't have the control over your film.

I'd stick to being a con artist.

Because you should.

Go rewatch that video you claim to have spent so long directing. Then read this quote:

Especially focus on the bit about nobody taking it seriously. Think about why they wouldn't take it seriously. Watch the video and consider why no one would take seriously over and over until you understand.
