Sound Design Tip of the Day

When editing audio at 2 AM, keep in mind that it may sound quite different when played back for a group of your co-workers at 11 AM. Here's to bleary-eyed creative energy.

Yes, I have some good memories of late nights in Corbitt desperately trying to finish a crazy media project into the weeeeeeee hours of the morn. A certain camaraderie is fostered in these times of shared trial and tribulation.

I have also discovered that staying up too late can change a person (kinda like the full moon and werewolves). Inhibitions are lowered and conversations become interesting. Thankfully, most of these can be forgotten because everyone is too tired to remember what you talked about.

According to my dad, "nothing good happens after midnight (with the possible exception of babies being born)."

Ah, yes, gotta love the wee hour edit sessions. You know, many great artists of yesteryear were high on something, be it drugs, alcohol, etc. so if your drug of choice is sleep depravation, it could make you one of the most brilliant artists of our time. And, would prevent your liver from pickling.
