    I've been recording for a couple years now...personal projects and high school aged bands. I recently got back in touch with a band my old band used to play with, and they started a video production company. One of the members manages bands. They are doing awesome work on music videos, skateboarding videos..etc. They want me to record demos for some of their less established clients and use what I record as the sound in their videos. To me this is huge! This could be a huge break for me, but now I'm second guessing if I can deliver them the quality product they need. They like my current work, but it isn't making me feel any less nervous.

    Someone give me words of encouragement because I've got myself so scared I'm about to poop in my pants!

    Just go for it...and give it all your best...that's all you can do...

    Try to learn from everything......and do better the next time.

    Every session I do I learn something..and the next one is that much better....

    We're all human......and make mistakes..so just do your best..have a good attitude...that's all that matters..

    Also...make sure you have some way of checking your mixes through a small tv and it's speakers...because of the nature of the work that's going to be your most listened to medium.....smaller tv's and their onboard speakers....

    If you need to you can send me the stuff to mix.....

    e-mail me if you want details..

    They like what you are doing !!! They asked you to do the project! ... That speaks volumes! Don't be timid ... go for it with all that you can muster and don't look back! If you fail, at least you'll know you tried. Try to do the best you can but ... "Don't go changin' to try and please them" ... :D :D :D Congrats on landing th' gig!

    Thanks guys... I feel that my work is below my own standards, but I set the bar pretty high. If I need any help on the project I know I have you guys to ask. I'm just really really excited.


    So far this is the biggest job yet....hopefully I'll be playing with the big kids in 5-10 years!

    Hey man, just relax and know you can do it- check your mixes in various setting before you give it to them and you'll be fine- keep your mixes clean and remember that less in more- sometimes we tend to throw in the kitchen sink and that just muddies things... go for it and have fun!

    Trial by fire, man!!
    nobody ever gets a break slowly - there always comes a time that someone throws you into the deep end, and you just have to go for it, even though it may seem like it's over your head.

    Chances are - you'll deliver. You're probably better than you think you are.. and if you're not, you will be quickly.

    I work with video guys a lot - They don't CARE about sound as long as it's there and doesn't actually sound *bad* or anything.

    So basically, do your best, and all will be well.

    DISCLAIMER: I actually know a couple VDO dudes that DO care about the audio tracks also. Not much, but some. :wink:
