The Music Angle And DJ Frontier

I've been busy with music infrastructure, and one of the benefits from that work will be for my upcoming indie film projects. One of the critical components of my plan is my DJ Career, and I have been working a lot on preparation for the re-launch of my DJ career next year. I DJ'ed a lot as an underground Tampa DJ from 1990 to 1997, working first as DJ Wiz Kid, and then as DJ Frontier. I'm still DJ Frontier. From 1997 to 2002, I DJ'ed more as a mobile DJ and worked as an event planner. In 2002, I took a break from DJ'ing, working most as a professional photographer and as a modeling and talent expert.

My time is almost here to return to performing, and DJ'ing is a big part of my performance career. Just keep in mind, however, that I will still work hard on my career as the top professional Tampa photographer- and that career will be expanded a lot, very soon. As a matter of fact, the investment in my DJ career and event planning business will come from my photography company, and the event planning company will invest back into the photography company in the next few years, as both support and promote each other. My event planning company, as well as my stage production company, will be important to my array of Tampa film festivals, too. I can't do any film festivals without my event planning company.

As a DJ, one of my prime objectives is to break new music to my fans and to my audience. This means that I will have to work with a lot of musicians, singers, and bands. I will have a rich source of music for indie films.

I am working on two DJ marketing web sites right now. They are new Celebrity Class marketing web sites. The main one will be for my DJ Frontier DJ career, at DJFrontier.Com. The other one is more for historical reference, as I will not be doing any projects under that name anymore; I needed to restore the brand because many of my re-released programs are marketed under that name (The other reason if for my past fans who are looking for my work, and my current work; I had a lot of fans). It is for my past as DJ Wiz Kid, and will be found at DJWizKid.Com. The DJ Wiz Kid site will lead into the DJ Frontier web site, while the DJ Frontier web site will reference the DJ Wiz Kid web site; the DJ Frontier site will heavily interlink with the Tampa DJ Blog, the Frontier View web site, the Tampa Music Festival web site, and the Frontier Society web site. Both DJ sites will have identical designs, with a difference on colors and minor design details. Which also reminds me- I need to get my Tampa advertising agency web site online this fall.

Does my DJ career have any more to do with my career as a Tampa filmmaker? Actually, it does- a lot. I will become one of the most visual DJ's in history. My indie filmmaking career will enhance my DJ career, and vice versa. A good portion of my time in front of the camera will be as DJ Frontier.

One of the things that I am working on now regarding my DJ career is to re-launch most of my earlier releases, which were published on analog cassette. I am converting those programs to digital releases, and will be designing custom, professionally done covers for all of the releases. You can see samples of this work, and read more on what's going on in my world of DJ'ing, at the Tampa DJ Blog. Ironically, despite the work going into the re-release of the audio programs, none of them will be available for sale, online or offline. Also, you won't be able to download any of them from any of my web sites, which is quite different from my indie film strategy. I have many good reasons for this, reasons that I will not go into here, and I still have great reasons left to do this. They are, after all, underground program releases, and online or at retail is hardly underground, now, is it? The primary purpose of making these old programs available again, and to make new ones, is to restore my fanbase and my influence. It's not for money. Money will come later, with my commercial program releases, which is a seperate production line altogether (although the commercial line will share the formats established my the underground line). Alrighty, it's for me, also; I am a fan of my own work, too, in all the professions that I work in, and I really do love to listen to all of my programs releases. They are really cool, and very entertaining.

Confused on how the releases will be re-released, and how they will get out there? I have a plan, and it is awesome. Don't think too hard about it. Just consider that my underground channels will be strong, and that's all that you need to know. If you are cool, you'll be able to listen to them. If you are not, or if you are one of my many cyberstalkers, good luck getting a hold of any of my releases. They are for the cool people, only.

Right now, though, I really do have to work on finishing my new service agreements. I've had clients get on my case lately about using old agreements. I also need to wrap up the latest post for my Tampa Photographer Blog, which I have been working on for several months now. It is called "Do I Hate Tampa Photographers?", and many of the points that I hit upon there apply to the Tampa indie film scene. I've had similar experiences in both industries, with the Tampa film scene being worse than the modeling and the photography industries, in my experience, and in my educated, qualified opinion. First the blog, since it already done, and then the contracts.

Oh, and I had to pull a Star Trek fan film from the online film festival today. It went dead because it was pulled from YouTube. Check my Online Film Festival Blog for more.
