After debuting with that sort of comic-romantic drama about loneliness was the special puzzle , Argentina’s director Natalia Smirnoff returns with The locksmith(see more about locksmith at jtautosecurity.co.uk), a new romantic comedy with Esteban Lamothe , who have seen a few months ago in our country starring in the debut Santiago Mitre , student, or recently in sharing thought it would be a party , as the protagonist of the film. the film does not have release date in Spain, but a few days ago just opened in the newly complete edition of Sundance and its trailer is this:
And this was confirmed by the study director, Adrian North from the University of Edinburgh. Although genres are very different, their fans share many personality traits and so have noted the Scottish capital. According to them, anyway you like Bach or worship Iron Maiden, both groups (as well as having good taste) are “quasi-identical”.
“To us they tell us nothing new”
The findings come from research on the personalities of more than 36,000 music fans around the world, from Chile to China. Leaving aside age differences, the study claims that are virtually identical, since they are more creative than others, not very extroverted and quiet. If? Insurance? That seems, because as lovers of classical music, metal are also obsessed with her style. Over the years has divided the genre increasingly subgroups, death metal, thrash metal, glam metal … And there is also a sense of theater that is common to both groups, as both try to find the show with their songs and performances.
On the other hand, they say that jazz fans, also resemble, as they are creative and extroverted, however, fans of the country are hard workers, those in the relaxed reggae, those of aggressive punk and indie lack self-esteem and they need the best flow shelf and rack system for cartons. There is nothing. All music fans in general were described as creative, hilarious three exceptions: lovers of disco, pop and pop music chart. Professor North explained that the musical tastes were a reflection of the character and choose a style and nothing else is what makes us tell the world something about ourselves. “People often define their sense of identity through their musical taste, wearing particular clothes, going to certain bars and using certain types of slang, so it is not surprising that personality should be related to musical preference” . And he believes that fans of jazz and soul have the “best” personality type, showing positive traits such as good self-esteem, creativity and extroversion.
If after this you still do not feel fully identified in the following descriptions seek and replantearos your tastes (or not):

Trend Micro reports that QuickTime Player (version 7.6.6) allows movie files automatically enable downloading files and cybercriminals are taking advantage of this to download malware from malicious Web sites.
IT Journal 03/08/10 11:59:00
The threat research engineer at Trend Micro, Benson Sy, found two .MOV files (001 Dvdrip Salt.mov and salt dvdrpi [btjunkie] [xtrancex] .mov) using the movie Salt starring Angelina Jolie and recently released in U.S. These files are suspect because they have a relatively small size compared to the usual movies.
When the user loads the file to QuickTime movie, the player shows no scene of the film, but it takes the user to download malware pretending to be a codec upgrade or another player installation. Trend Micro is still investigating if the malware is exploiting a vulnerability or using a feature known to download other malware.

‘We Are Your Friends’ , the new Hollywood movie that will portray how the hell make you famous overnight being Melbourne DJ hire, it seems to serve only 2 things: 1) thrill in love little girls of Zac Efron (who is the protagonist) and 2) to very accurately portray the frivolity of the phenomenon of electronic music today. Yes, indeed, the trailer says perhaps naively in three minutes.
“If you’re a DJ, you just need a laptop, some talent and a track, that track is your ticket for all” … cock! It is as sad as true at the same time. And not that it is bad to be a deejay or aspire to be, but come on , this is the current mentality or target of any guy in his 20’s or less – who wants to acclimate parties or clubs like modus vivendi ? If so, you’re screwed.
What will the tape? Well, Zac Efron’s that dude who does not want to devote his life to wear a suit and tie (which is not bad) and orders from an asshole boss at a job I would not want (that itself is not good). With his friends, promote parties and gatherings where the turntables are the main attraction and somehow, Zac’s character achieved an agreement with an agent or something is in progress. The dream that arises in every film, we already realized, but now being deejay. Not bad, but we are still a bit wary.
And though possibly all end up being a huge disaster film, when in fact we would like to see a true document on the EDM we are choosing our seats at the movies or watching online in late August … you know, because it leaves Emily Ratajkowski.
Here the trailer:
Develop and maintain a successful music channel on YouTube is not easy. a lot of thought, touch and a keen sense of the wishes of the public will be required. This article will give you the necessary steps to create and run a music channel on YouTube.
Make a YouTube account and choose the correct name. So you want to promote music, huh? You should let people know that choosing the right name! Do you want to pop up? You could try PopMusic5ever, for example. Drums and bass? LiquidMelodies is good if youdecide to keep it soft!
If you read my other posts, maybe you’ve noticed that I usually do, occasionally, references to the seventh art. In this post, there are two of my greatest interests, water and film.
It is true that cinema, fiction or documentary, not usually treated too often the theme of water and the human being, but looking a bit (on occasion much) films are highly recommended that you should not miss.
This top 10 is divided into five documentaries and 5 fiction films without an order for quality, you tell me what you liked which more or missing.
Prepare popcorn and launch project free TV to see the movies!
Synopsis : The bottled water industry is increasingly booming, is a business on a global level is estimated at 800 billion dollars . In the United States consumption of bottled water is a big problem, 80 million bottles of water daily which 80% are not recycled are consumed (the world average is 50%). This problem is compounded by numerous cases in which companies bottlers exploit natural water sources to near exhaustion without even paying for it.
Advertising has made us believe that best water softener is healthier and less dangerous than tap water, which in most cases is not true. In the United States if bottled water is produced and consumed in the same state, it is not subject to health control whatsoever on the part of the authorities, representing 60-70% of total production. The remaining part if supervised, but are limited to control water analysis provided by the bottling companies own a real blunder.
This phrase Gandhi sums it up : ” There is enough water for human need, but not for human greed ” (There is enough water for human need, but not for their greed).
Review : Dynamic, entertaining and enlightening . The only downside is that it is focused only in the United States, and you can be tempted to autoengañarte and think that this does not happen where you live while you drink your bottle of expensive and polluting “mineral” water.
2. A world without water
Synopsis : A documentary about the problems related to bad practices in the privatization of the supply of water , mainly imposed by the World Bank to developing country.
In it, a trip around the world, stopping in cities as is El Alto in Bolivia where Suez through its subsidiary, Aguas de Illimani, covers 90% of town but left without the ability to connect to 208,000 people by the high prices. The situation is so blatant that local authorities recommend the illegal connection of its inhabitants.
Something similar happened in the most populous city in Tanzania , Dar es Salaam, where public water is privatized. They increased water shortages and the price rose so abill cost ¼ of the average wage , or the known manifestations of Cochabamba (Bolivia) and repression by the government stopped fighting, wounded and died young .
But it is not only a thing of the third world, in Detroit , the economic crisis and the state of bankruptcy of the city makes many people do not have resources to pay the water bill and choose to connect illegally.
Review : A deep, poignant and especially cabreante history of human beings taking water at the doors of your house can not access it by the greed of a few on the other side of the world in collaboration with the World Bank. To enjoy this movie in high quality, please visit Movie25.
Synopsis: “As a bunch of corporations rob us water” . This is the caption on the movie poster and well summarized its contents. In the documentary talking about the privatization of water in many places around the world, not only distribution services but in some cases the resource itself.
It was exhibited at the United Nations headquarters to sensitize representatives of the problems related to water in the world and the need to protect the population of the economic interests of a few.
Review: It ‘s a mixture of A World Without Water and Tapped , so it touches all aspects related to the problem of water supply. A very dynamic documentary, with many different stories but with a message in common, all water is not a commodity.What is sometimes lost in depth of the stories, it gains in pace.
4. The thirst of the world
Synopsis: The director of recommended documentary Home, story of a journey, brings us this journey through man’s problems with the water around the world.
Kenya , Congo, Cambodia , Palestine, Senegal and China are some of the places you visit, discovering their problems with lack of nearby water sources, pollution and conflicts associated with it.
Aesthetically very remarkable, based his narrative on precious and striking aerial images , brand director (his documentary Home has only aerial images and the voice of the narrator). In this case too low to the ground to talk to the protagonists of these stories.
With a large budget of 10 million Euros, provided by the luxury conglomerate PPR (Gucci, Fnac, Puma, etc.), he was accused of greenwashing (a facelift) by these companies.
Review: Definitely photography and soundtrack are the strengths of this production, better watch it on a big screen if possible. With a calm (not heavy) rate is between a documentary of social criticism and one of nature .
5. Cadillac Desert: Mulholland’s Dream
Synopsis: Create your own instant city, just add water! The incredible story of transformation of the city of Los Angeles from water.
Los Angeles had nothing, not having had no water, but went from being a small town without importance in the nineteenth century the largest city in the United States by the vision he had William Mulholland, in the 1910s, of build an aqueduct across California. In this first episode of the series of four chapters, Cadillac Dessert (based on the novel of the same name) tells the incredible story of how greed, speculation, waste and lack of environmental awareness, made the City of Angels what it is today and the San Fernando Valley, the largest agricultural producer in the country.
With an ever larger in the middle of a desert if city resources, the engineering turned the desert into orchard in exchange for converting those orchards from which brought water in deserts . With the testimony of descendants of William Mulholland, experts on the subject as the author of the book Cadillac Desert (Marc Reisner) or (Robert Towne) writer of the film Chinatown, set in those years and adversaries who suffered the disastrous consequences of these measures , constructed one of the most fascinating stories of transformation of a territory by water .
Review: A powerful and gripping story about how humans transformed the American Midwest radically, regardless of the dire environmental consequences. The story of how a city about greed, speculation and superb human being refounded .
Although I already hit my five documentaries I refuse to not point this also highlight Last Call To Oasis , on how the situation is midwestern American today and people think there over the water. In addition brings the incentive to meet the real Erin Brockovic whose movie will see later.
But as he has not entered the top 5 only I leave the fun spot starring in the documentaryJack Black an alleged result of bottled water purifying sewage , Porcelaine Springs Will you would drink?
Synopsis: Los Angeles, 1937. specialized in divorce detective JJ Gittes (Jack Nicholson) receives the visit woman superintendent of the water service in the city, Mulwray, stop to investigate infidelity. After jumping the scandal lso newspapers, a woman comes into his office and reveals a story that will take you to dive into the game ambitions and power that lies behind the water in the city of Los Angeles .
Review: A classic black cinema with eleven Oscar nominations of people who only got one. It is situated on the first growing season and water speculation Los Angeles but only inspired by her, almost in no time showing events or real characters (only comment briefly breaking of the dam The Francisquito). If you have the opportunity to read the book Cadillac Dessert (Mark Reisner) or view based on the documentary (Cadillac Desert: Mulholland’s dream), you will understand better certain details that the film does not explain, if not even have a good film of black cinema .
Curiosity: In principle the film was to be called Water and Power , name of water service in the city and reflects very well the power games around water, but ultimately chose to Chinatown, I guess loudness, as neither It takes place in that neighborhood (except a small scene) and hardly has any relation to the plot.
7. Civil Action
Synopsis : In the small town of Wobum, Massachusetts, eight families suffer death from leukemia of his sons and two large corporations accused of dumping waste and polluting the water from their wells . Jan Schlichtmann (John Travolta), injury lawyer, will take over the case and try to help families obtain justice.
Review : Movie a good script and great actors , especially Robert Duvall, nominated for an Oscar for this role, but that does not stop being round (perhaps by the protagonist). A film research and classical, judgments sober and somber .
8. Erin Brockovich
Synopsis : Erin Bockovic is a single mother with two children who survive can work as work. Get an administrative position in a small law firm though his personality and the way they dress not fit too in that world. Without studying law and no one would charge, is the case some clients suffering many suspicious diseases that seem to be related to the water they drink, and discovering a large court case .
Review : Not Another film judgments to begin the protagonist is not a lawyer (or likes too). How to be outgoing and colorful, and sometimes provocative attire of the protagonist, give the counterpoint to the drama of families, not dropping it in a dark and gloomy atmosphere. Although falls in almost all topics, it is a very entertaining movie .
9. Even the Rain
Synopsis : Sebastian (Gael García Bernal) and Costa (Luis Tosar) is the director and producer of a film about Columbus and the discovery of America , which seeks todemystify the figure, portraying him as an ambitious and unscrupulous person. To cut costs decide to travel to Bolivia, the poorest country in South America and roll in Cochabamba. In 2000 the Bolivian government privatized the water service in the city, which caused big protests and harsh repression in what was called Bolivian Water War. All equipment is fully immersed in the conflict that 500 years after the indigenous people still face the money, power and greed, this time by the water.
Critique : The film grows in a first part focuses more on the set, its complexities and problems, until conflict erupts and all these problems are swept away by the harsh reality of a poor people fighting for their life, water in a last part intense and revealing .
Synopsis : Range is a lonely chameleon who wants to be an actor and just accidentallylost in the Mohave Desert . When it reaches the thirsty people of Dirt, he decides to play the role of Sheriff, but realizes that acting is one thing and real life is another. He will face the mysterious disappearance of water from the village and discover the conspiracy that lies behind so understanding the vital importance of water .
Review : It is perhaps the most complete film on the water there . They talk about their value for life but also of the power games there around it. His character animation, directed especially children, lacks some depth , but is a good start for future generations begin to value water. When will a range for adults?
The benefits of music on infants and children are amply demonstrated. Know how, and during pregnancy, you can stimulate your baby with music.
The baby, from the 20th week of pregnancy can already hear. Therefore, although the small still can not understand the words his mother says, you should speak, as does capture the musicality, tone and feeling that the mother puts in the words dedicated to him.
However, words are not the only means that mom has to communicate with the future baby. Music also allows the child tocapture the mood of his mother and spread their welfare. What is more, some scientific studies claim that baby can remember until he has heard melodies while he was in the belly of her mother.
Listening to music during pregnancy has many benefits for both mother and baby stimulates heart rate in the fetus and the production of endorphins in the mother. Through ear, music acts on the whole human being, launching vibrational resonances that activate million brain cells, promoting brain development.
What kind of music is best during pregnancy?
The findings of Clements confirmed with investigations by Don Campbell, author of Mozart Effect , which relate the experiments showing how the music of the Austrian composer and, in general, baroque music, stimulate new connections of neurons in the brains of children, because they are rich in symmetries and recurring patterns that manage to develop both the right and the left hemisphere, completing their duties.
Its rhythms and melodies also stimulate creativity and specialized areas of the brain in favor motivation.
If you want to make a living as an artist, you have to be as smart as any businessman in a meeting. Look at these 10 tips on how to be an entrepreneur musician.
Most people hear terms like “film industry” or “music industry” or “xero bookkeeper brisbane” and only fixed in the second half. To succeed in business, in any business, you have to be a skilled negotiator. If you want to make a living as an artist, you have to be as smart as any businessman in a meeting, or at least smart enough to have hired the most skilled person in the room.
If you had initiated any other business without an accountant or lawyer to guide you, you would regard as an unconscious;however, in the art world, you look so if you start with them. This is a great incongruity, and you should focus your career from a more logical view. Many great artists lost everything in a bad business decisions. Most successful artists reap their greatest success after understanding the business side of his art, and put everything in order before the next opportunity.Unfortunately, most artists “indie” or beginners seeking to better themselves alone with his art, and the part of business can be hard, making them feel exhausted.
Beginning myself as an artist indie. I worked hard, I had some luck and my accomplishments led me to be a director of many successful artists and companies. While I used to that, I found a lot of repetitive problems. Here are ten tips to help you manage your business properly. Follow them with the same passion that you put into your art, and come out ahead.
1. Start with a mission statement and a business plan
A passionate project will be contagious to everyone who is sensitive to that passion, but, at some point, if you want to make a living with your art, you have to work it like a business. Start by writing a mission or statement of principles that you remember the passion you want to share, and help others to align themselves with your cause. Having a business plan about also will help you focus on the operations of the day and what you need to do to earn money to live that passion and feeding.
2. Analyze what it will take to be profitable
I am able to calculate your expenses, knowing how much you have to sell to cover your costs, and make sure your profit margin is normal.
Many artists are guided by the average price to sell a product, while others are unrealistic with the value of the product.Others, especially musicians and comedians who spend a lot of time on the road, begin to collect what they can get by selling multiple products after a show. This is where knowing the limits of your business plan, which has been the result of good work of observation, will help you live under normal conditions of a business, and, tante, be able to make your art is your way of lifetime.
Take the following example of an indie musician. Sell a CD after a show for $ 10 is normal, while asking for $ 30 makes it less likely sales at the point of sale as people leave the room. Getting a good agreement with the recording studio, or produce your music at home will allow you to keep costs down and transferring savings. If someone has the face of “Let’s make a deal,” entoces be a good seller, “I see you’re a real fan and want to share my music, and I like to help, so I can give you a card digital download for $ 5 and even you the I dedicate “the last time we ordered download cards got a very good deal, so we expand our chances of getting benefits at concerts. You can satisfy your fans and meet your financial goals; you simply have to be streetwise.
Nor should you forget to do your expense sheets, they must be for all, not just your business costs, but for your life. If this will be your job, you also need to pay life. Consider your daily expenses and savings so you know how much it will cost your business to profit. Most indie artists calculate what it will cost to run your business (or just make a living as artists), but in a normal working situation, you look at your paycheck. Consider yourself an employee of your own business. You feel like enough to pay your bills, save money and go on vacation? Your company a profit does not mean you finance: if you need to live your art, make sure your salary and your living standards are included in the business plan. As my own CEO, I’m guilty of paying me very little. If you were working for someone else and I should pay so little, I would. Put yourself in position to love your business, and pay yourself a correct salary so that you do not want to leave.
3. Autofinánciate if you can
With modern technology, most artists can start with few expenses. Many have the basic equipment for his artistic activity. My wife produced an album in the living room that became eligible for the list of Grammy; with the right equipment and a decent computer, art is much more accessible to the indie market.
Borrowing is a normal way to start a business, but back loans with interest can choke a small business, and is one of the main reasons why small businesses fail. Prepare for success and at the same time controlling your destiny without investors trying to push your art.
If you need more money for hours of study or a movie, do it as a good businessman. Get many quotes from different parts.There are many kinds of investors and banking options at your fingertips. I would suggest asking for advice to an investor.They can guide you in the right direction. Other artists who in the past have had to borrow can also advise you. If in doubt, ask someone you know and you trust; many people are willing to offer advice. Once I asked for help with my business plan to an MBA student; he had to make a business plan as classwork, so it was a task that had to do anyway, and we both benefit from it. The Small Business Administration is a free resource that retired entrepreneurs are funded by the government to give advice to small businesses at zero cost, and are in all major cities.
4. Limit your risk
A new business is a risk, as is every new adventure. Treat your new album, film or art exhibition as a new expansion of your business. Never grow beyond your means and your model of success. If you do it right, you do not invest all your time and money on something that would have made little or slow growth in the past. A situation I’ve seen too often is: a musician has some success on tour and sales of their independent CD, then go into the studio and spends all his money on quality production, and their fans say who he has lost freshness and sounds “over-produced”, and suddenly that artist is indebted above its possibilities and does not have an extra capital.
In a small business, many problems come from the rapid expansion, or the company wanting to go too far. If your success comes to make a CD of $ 2000 in your house, sell CDs at $ 10 and drive to bowling, do not make a CD of $ 20,000, go to some concert tickets and try to sell CDs at $ 15; this would be enough to break your business model.
Integra each new initiative as a branch of the core business. Keep you and your business safe; recalls that a musician can not play if your instruments are embargoed. Movie studios make every movie a separate company and then distributed. It helps limit the debt of the business and ensures that if an initiative does not benefit, not drag the rest of the business. Logic grows, expand yourself as space, and make sure your business is protected by insurance. Never let your debt exceeds the total value of your business and everything will be fine. A company like Apple does not come out and made a million iPhones unless they know it will sell. The artists, especially my filmmakers companions, like to go out and make a film for a million dollars, not knowing who your market and which dealer will pay how much for which markets (to the phrase sounds complicated, but that’s why so you need a business person doing your business plan and keeping you protected).
5. Simple Principles
This brings us to the next point: start slowly. Every artist wants an immediate success, but a fan base takes time to grow. If you spend it all on a project, you may find yourself stuck with a pile of boxes of product. Most of the time, artists need time to grow, not only artistically and stylistically, but on the business side. Never overdo beyond your financial and emotional means. I have seen many comics in particular that have become famous too fast and have an emotional wallop and have left. A business plan will help you to not exceed your financial limits and help you emotionally prepare for success because you see things as an expected result. If the new Apple iPhone becomes the best selling phone, comes within expectations, and does not cause a shock. Similarly, if Janet Jackson had a problem with her dress the day before his new album went on sale, did not pose a stroke, was scheduled to come out in the news and that their new album was a “breast-seller “(breast = chest, have you seen what pun?). A plan lets you know what to expect so simple.
6. Put everything in writing
Most family businesses have a very personal atmosphere, and the same goes for the artists. Personally know a booker makes it seem logical to arrange a tour by phone. But enough bad bolo to leave out a lot of indie musicians and comedians.A small discrepancy about who pays movements can end with an artist. Everything is clear by putting it in writing will keep you safe. A quote I used to have on my desk saved me many times: “A contract helps preserve friendship on which a relationship is based.” My wife is one of the best lawyers in the entertainment industry and, unfortunately, is something that happens every day hear of small misunderstandings that lead to a demand side. If you have more than this, remember, a lawsuit can sink a small business or an artist, so I put everything in writing.
If you are an artist of any kind, the most important thing to put in writing is the intellectual property of your work. I personally know a musician who played a song live for years and even sold his CD with that song, and, moreover, got that song came out in a movie, anything to get her steal the song the same producer who made the CD , who gave a famous artist who took her to the top of the charts, without my friend received a penny or her name appeared in the credits! Unfortunately he never registered the copyright and therefore had no legal basis on which to stand. Make sure all your work is protected in writing.
One last point: do not just put it in writing, understands well that you put in writing. TLC sold over 10 million records and still had $ 200,000 of debt. They were incredible breaking records, barriers and hearts; but his contract trashed his bank account.
7. Be Competitive
Be at the forefront. The artists are blessed that good ideas flow, and most businesses would kill for such a talent. Many indie artists I know remain creative in their art, but that’s the same in his business side. Stay current with the latest technologies to modernize the production of your art and even day to day operations like accounting. Small details can make a big difference; for example technologies in the production of films now allow smaller teams 15 years ago. Now you can use an external accounting service to pay bills and payroll instead of having a full-time accountant. You can live in a cheaper place thanks to remote concerts with platforms like Stage-it. A friend of ours, Shannon Curtis, is making more money with private concerts in houses that playing in traditional theaters in Los Angeles; the business has changed, and she was acutely how to take advantage of the trend, with their fan base and their music style in mind. Competitive advantages brought him and now even earn money teaching others how to do musicians. The phrase “do not let your usual work” has different meanings: if you have some success, go ahead! Resting on the laurels of fame achieved is not what made you famous in his day; keep that competitive spirit that led you to where you are and still working. Small businesses that do not remain competitive in their market will be less.
8. yourself with the right equipment
Staying competitive means you’ll need to hire people. An emerging artist needs a lot of things, including production quality audio, video clips, photos, album design, press releases, and more. Hire the most qualified people you can afford, and make sure they are aligned with your mission. Find another artist that can connect yield better results than simply hiring a good coach. It may take time, but do not get to the first person who offers a good deal. If you do not fit well, the final product will not respond to your mission, and soon, your artistic vision that defines you, will be lost, and as a result start to lose fans.Many artists take what they can, this is not the way to run a business and will lead to failure. A small business does not make an announcement because a fan offered to do it for free. If you are serious about advertising and marketing, make sure it is done according to your business plan and your mission. You can get lucky and get a video clip or movie trailer of your free time to time, but many small businesses do worse for having bad ads and commercials. Your art and image must be protected.
On the other hand, it hires the manager, agent, accountant and lawyer appropriate. Make sure you have similar customers and understand what you do. Do not hire a lawyer who handles car accidents, but a lawyer who understands show business and contracts need sector. A lawyer and an accountant are two professional services that can not only save you money in the long run, but save your business. Ask them to read your business plan and your mission statement and explain how they could help you achieve your goals. Find the best film student to make a video with you, or ask a teacher to join you with his best film estudicante for the next round of projects. This will lead to better results than hiring the cheapest person in the yellow pages.
Whatever it is you need, get yourself the best you can get; do you take the time to ensure business success. The artists who are at the top got where they are doing exactly that.
9. The appropriate rules for the proper equipment
In business, if someone works exclusively for you full time, it’s your employee. There in the art world a lot of temporary jobs that are usually for temporary staff. They are for people who do specific jobs for a limited time. Anda carefully. You should not have legal problems for declaring that your business has no employees when you have people working full time just for you and your orders. Save yourself time, money and a possible fine being aware that if someone works for you full time and exclusively can be legally considered your employee. If you have an accountant or lawyer can guide you on these issues.Having a professional team or service properly manage your business in the long run can save you headaches, and keeps you focused on your artistic work.
Trying to save money by hiring suppliers separately could cost you more in the long run if you do not properly. Small businesses have to hire people and have to follow the rules; this is no different for artists. I see this as one of the biggest obstacles to business growth of an artist. I think this is the point where the artist realizes that it is a business, and frightened.As your business grows, so does the need to look like a traditional business. Pass bowling alone, where you only get paid, to a real business model, with payroll, bills and things like that often frightens the solitary artist. This brings us back to the subject of the business plan and expectations about how much and how to grow, and if you have the right equipment, they will make the transition from indie large company easier. Remember, business has rules and laws, and the right equipment the know.
10. Be professional
It might sound weird even have to mention this, but it is essential. When you go to a company, you expect a level of professionalism. If you go out to eat, you expect to follow the laws of Health, which treat you well, and you get the right price for what they offer. Many artists are eccentric and forget to be professional. Artists who have a solid business and get along well with others get more gigs. Any circle in which you’re small, and people talk. Word of mouth can help or sink. A booker told me once,
“I heard that always go with the house on his back and punctual you are.”
I said, “Always.”
He said, “I will hire whenever you want!”
I asked “Have you seen my show?”
“No,” he replied, “but I think you do not understand what the job of a booker”.
“What is it?” I asked.
“Hiring artists who are professionals that help my business, nothing more and nothing less.”
We had a great working relationship for years, he even gave a name to cheesburger from one of my comic characters. If you ever visit the HaHa Cafe in North Hollywood, calls for the Cheesburger Uncle Clyde, and will taste the sweet taste of professionalism.
In short, the reputation of a business will succeed or fail, so try your business to pay the bills on time, be on time, and do what is necessary to maintain a good reputation. This will be more durable than the highs and lows of fame, and maybe if you’re lucky, you get to name a hamburger.
