This is a long overdue post, but I’ve been crazy busy makin’ shiz happen. Here’s the short n’ skinny…
In 2014 I started this web show, and let me tell you…putting it together was a trip. I was stuck handling video production and hosting duties, script-writing, and promotion all at the same time. Because of my insane schedule, I don’t even remember June through October of last year. But shockingly, it went almost exactly as planned. I was happy with the production, the response was decent, and it paved the way for future content. I only did 9 episodes in this first season to make sure I knew what the hell I was doing before I committed to it.
Oh, by the way, before we get into what lies ahead, check out my behind-the-scenes retrospective. There are some fun little facts and insights on past episodes.
It’s been a few months since that first season, so I think it’s time to give Jamnatomy a full-time status. This is a huge commitment for me…a show every single week. I’m sure it will get easier over time.
So why do all of this anyway? To answer that, I have to admit that I spend more time in a YouTube black hole than I care to admit. I get stuck watching video after video, and before I know it, there goes two hours of my life that I’ll never get back.
That said, I’ve seen so many music performance videos that feature amazing artists. The problem with these videos? Production. Both audio and video looks like they put no energy into it at all. In fact, check out my first video on YouTube. The performance is just fine. Everything else? Not so much.
This doesn’t detract from their talent, but it’s also not doing them any favors. With just a little production work, their audio and video could be leaps and bounds better, which would in turn help them better exude the emotion they are going for, whether its comedy, sorrow, anger, or happiness. Plus, people are quality snobs these days, so you gotta stay on your game.
That’s where Jamnatomy comes in. This is my way of spreading information to younger artists looking to produce the way that I do. I’m not even saying that my songs and videos are the holy grail of production, but I have spent countless hours honing my production skills, and I do believe that it shows in my work.
So with that said, let’s check out the first episode of this reboot.
