Film Composer, Adam Spade SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Adam Spade is a Composer, Producer, Screenwriter, and also a Web and Technology Consultant. He grew up in the 1980’s, giving him a special appreciation for the pop and progressive rock culture, the Nintendo Entertainment System, Transformers, and of course, an empty glass of Tang.

(continued) He is currently working on several projects, producing multiple films, video games, as well as the scores for two other feature films, while taking on the scores for short films in his free time.

Adam has been referred to as a “monster songwriter”. He has written well over 1,000 songs and, for years, would write 10 songs daily. However, he is not fond of fame and prefers to stay out of the limelight, licensing his music rather than performing.

Adam is a skilled guitar player, playing 6, 7, and 8-string guitars, and drawing influence from artists like Dream Theater, Steve Vai, and Iron Maiden. He has also shown a natural ability to play piano, drums, as well as sing, and he continually studies new instruments. However, his focus remains on composing and writing.

Recently, Adam co-founded Uncaged Media LLC, a web solution company, Uncaged Entertainment LLC, a production and distribution group, and concurrently with Uncaged Games LLC, an interactive game development company, where he serves a small development team as Project Manager and contributes where needed, along with co-owner and programmer Callum McRae, of Canada. Adam has also recently co-founded a marketing company with offices in two countries, and is Vice-President and Senior Broker at Hai Group LLC.

“After 10 minutes on the phone I knew Adam was the right fit to deliver a captivating score for our film Beta Test. I threw the basic raw-material requirements at him, and in short order he delivered a provocative sound that was woven within visual elements of the story and layered with stealthily, executed allusion.”

Is the Music Industry Dead?

Is the music industry… dead? This question comes up too often and usually involves a mention of how piracy has damaged the market so badly. So what’s going on? There is a very simple answer for this. Let me help you break it down.   The music industry is reliant on, you guessed it… THE CONSUMER To play music, the consumer has traditionally purchased an album, along with a form of technology to play the album. After the “digital invasion”, consumers realized that digital files would last forever, whereas cassette tapes wore down, CD’s melted in the car, and so on. We started backing up our cd’s and burning copies for friends. We were sharing… and in a similar way to recording a mixtape for a pretty girl. After the iPod and iTunes hit the market, we started realizing how easy it was to store massive amounts of music. Besides the nostalgia, physical media has lost its value. The latest generations don’t value the CD like previous generations. We have slowly traded the smell of a new album for the convenience of digital media and mobile devices. And let this serve as a reality check, the music itself even suffered a drastic loss of quality in order to fit into small spaces, as well as to help sell mobile devices. i.e. “Stores X amount of songs on one device!” Don’t underestimate the industry’s reliance on the consumer’s desires. We now have streaming services that SHOULD be the answer to our digital prayers. But we also have youtube and VEVO who both allow us to play music for free from any...

How to fund your movie: Understanding crowd-funding and investment shares

If you ask around about how to get funding for your project, the first thing that usually flies out of the mouth is “crowd-funding”. It’s the latest craze and we hear so much about it. But how likely is it to work and what is it exactly?   What is crowd-funding? Crowd-funding is such a tricky beast for people to understand because it seems like something that it technically is not. What crowd-funding seems to be is a way to get funding for your project. Free money by request because people like to donate their hard earned cash to projects of interest. What it really is, is distribution reliant on marketing and traffic from other sources. I’m going to use a film project for example in this article, but the same logic will apply to video games, music albums, and other projects. There are two parts to the crowd funding website that should concern you. 1. The page for your project for which you will drive traffic, potential buyers to. 2. A blog feed highlighting the more popular and successful projects. You should treat these as two separate entities as you will have to be successful at one in order to take advantage of the other. You will be manually marketing and selling your product through the crowd-funding platform to start, in hopes of getting high enough in their news feed so that you may actually take advantage of their network, which is what has apparently made this platform famous, the big winners. In the end, you are just selling your product in a store with some integrated social networking between...
