Building Out My Own Studio

COVID-19 has been a thorn in my flesh for the past several months because it means a slowdown to everything. Everything? EVERY THING! This means no events to DJ, no auditions to go on, no sets to perform on, nothing. Nothing but fitness and Netflix mostly.

Well, I figured instead of being a victim, be a victor. I’ve been gifted a rare thing having all of this time. I went from 3 jobs to virtually 1 job during all of COVID. I’m still able to pull a check weekly but now I have time to do a few things I have only been able to plan out like:

  1. Organizing my list of music for my DJing sets
  2. Building a home studio with camera, light and space
  3. Work on material for my next comedy show
  4. Get my body and vocals primed for my next big role.

To be honest, I’ve only dones about 2 items on this list. This is actually the condensed version. But I’m really proud of having committed to items 2 and 4. Keep scrolling for more…

Well, since the title of this post focuses on item 4, I’ll talk about that. What did I do to get my home studio in progress? Well, let me give a disclaimer…it’s still a studio in progress but here’s where I’ve gotten:

  • The studio is basically mobile.
    • This was important because with an entertainment career and the potential to get called up at any point, being able to move at any point is priority.
  • I gathered all of my good equipment including my camera, a powerful light, a rig to hold all of it together, a tripod and an option for mobile phone.
  • I ordered a mic that was supposed to be for the camera but it actually works for my Macbook and iPhone. That’s no problem because I can record audio and visual separately for other creative ambitions.

The studio is still in progress since I have so much more to order but I’m off to a great start. One thing I know I have to get is a few solid backgrounds including one for green screen.

      I appreciate the love. It’s similar to working out. Looking at the scope, the beginning and the end seems so daunting but once I’m in it I’m on to enjoying the process. 🥰. When it’s done you’ve gotta come be on camera.
