Hey guys -
I am posting this here, as I don't really see a 'business' area, and it's more relevant here than off-topic.
A composer friend of mine and I are talking about starting an audio production company here in Austin. Our goals would be to provide music composition, sound design, v.o., and audio post to film/game/television/radio productions.
We've each had success on our own with projects, and we feel that together we can do better than individually. Our goal is to eventually become a sort of 'media ventures lite'. We still would keep our normal jobs until we could go full time, or part time salary. Apart from composing ourselves, we would work contractually with outside composers as needed.
I was curious if anyone else on this forum has tried this, and what your thoughts are? The few people we've told so far in the film community have expressed interest in it, and it's being well-received so far.
