This ISM update consists of not one weeks worth of work, but two. Mr. Speice saw the intensity of the ISM course load over the next couple of weeks, and decided to give us some extra time to assure that the proposal for our final products are efficient, accurate, and impactful. These past two weeks, in regards to ISM, have consisted of this proposal.
For my final product, I decided that I wanted to make a advertisement video further encouraging the arts. I felt that this would give me a great amount of exposure to the business and marketing aspect of music, and would show me the behind the scenes of pursuing a career in this aspect. I was lucky enough to find a fellow ISM student, who also had the intentions of further exploring the business aspect of art, and him and I sat down to discuss a potential partnership for this product.
We met this weekend and spent hours upon hours discussing the expected outcome of this project, and how we could incorporate this project into both of our ISM topic of studies. We then sat down together for a 3 hour period and put together a product proposal and an effective and as accurate as possible product calendar. Upon hopeful approval from Mr. Speice, we will continue to take the steps to execute the project. I am confident that working alongside another ISM student who is just as passionate as me for my final product will have a great outcome, and I am excited to hit the ground running upon approval.
With a week off to refresh and “play catch up” in regards to both ISM and the course load of my other classes, I can confidently say that I am ready for the heavy load of ISM, and to continue to explore my passion of music performance all while learning about the practical and business aspect of music as well.
