Welcome to WalterBiscardi.com and home of the art of media production brought to you not by professional trainers, but by what I call “professionally certified artists.” Folks who earn their living “in the trenches” day in, day out, meeting deadlines and having to push creative limits on a regular basis. Editors, Sound Designers, Colorists, Photographers, Producers, Public Relations, Research & Development, Business Development & Growth and so on. These are the people I want to learn from. They understand not only the equipment and software, but how you need to operate in order to meet deadlines, specifications and manage time.
What you absolutely will NOT find on this site is a “professional trainer” who does little more than read a manual and then regurgitate back to you and call it training. We call that “learning to push the buttons the way the manufacturer wants you to push buttons.” There’s plenty of other websites out there if this is all you want.
Oh sure, we’re going to have the technical too because that’s the basis for moving forward in the craft, but we’re even going about that in a wholly different way which you’ll see in the coming months.
Now just because my name is the title of the website, I don’t have an ego whereby I have to present ALL of the training on here. That’s just silly. No one person can know everything in this craft and then pretend to teach you like an “expert.” In my case my strengths are in editorial, color, post production design, management and motion graphics. But I know some damn good artists who are super talented in their respective fields and I’m proud to say they’re going to be a part of this site. Folks I know and trust when I need work done or advice. Heck you’re going to hear from some folks who have nothing to do with media production but have some incredible insight on starting, building and growing a business.
So the idea here is to look beyond just the technical and get into the craft of what we do in all aspects of Production and Business. Once you know how to push buttons, you need to know what to do next to have a successful career in this industry. We plan to be that resource.
So welcome to our new enterprise, sign up today to be on our mailing list and be the first to know as our new products roll out over the next few months.
