Growing Up with Music: My Quiet History as a Music Producer

I’ve been experimenting with music for quite some time, but I know I still have a long way to go. My history with music is quiet, because I would never talk about the hobby to anyone other than friends and family. Music became one of my safe spaces where I could express myself and that led to me keeping my work a secret. After gathering the confidence to do so, I’ve been pushing my music out and experimenting with new sounds beyond my usual.

Releasing My Music on Streaming Platforms and Stores

I’ve been creating music for a few years now, and it seems fitting to finally release my work to official streaming platforms and stores. It excites me to finally say that the day has come! You can now officially purchase or stream my music on a myriad of platforms including Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, and more!

You can currently stream KrimZon, Tonic Shock, and Karapathea using an embeded playlist here on my website if you’d like. Check out the music section! Alongside the official release of these music tracks, I’ll be developing music videos to accommodate a few tracks across the three current albums.

Into the Next Decade: Reflecting on the Past and Projecting the Future

In a few days, the end of a decade brings the start of a new one. The first day of January marks the beginning of something new for everyone, whether they realize it or not. 2010 through 2019 was a wild ride for me, and I’d like to reflect upon those years today. Looking ahead in 2020, I have some new projects planned and ideas for the oncoming decade. My quiet period is coming to a close, and I’ve never been more prepared to work on projects I’m passionate about.

100 Days of Motion: Reflecting on my Daily Animation Challenge

March 26th 2018, a little over a year ago from today, I started a new project for myself called “100 Days of Motion”. I figured since it’s been a while, it would be constructive to reflect on the project. Whether or not the title is accurate, 100 Days of Motion was a 100-day challenge that involved creating and posting anything to do with motion graphics, visual effects, or 3D animation. I would create five different pieces to post each week, Monday through Friday on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. I’ve pinned down my reflection into three parts. The Overall Takeaway, Highlights, and What’s Next.

Why is it Cool to ‘Hate’ Movies? Let’s be Constructive

It’s Thursday night and you just left the movie theater after watching the next summer blockbuster with two good friends. One friend is erratic with excitement and future plot theories, and the other friend expresses their experience as a snooze-fest. Back and forth, each of your friends fights with various objections while they await your opinion. While you may feel neutral about the movie, there’s just something easier about expressing how bad the movie was. Whether or not your points are objective or subjective, you might rarely mention the things done well.

Should You Go to College for Video Production? Yes and No.

It’s a smart idea to question whether or not you should go to college for video production. With YouTube and countless other resources available to you, it can be tempting to decide against it. There are plenty of arguments that both support and oppose the necessity or usefulness of college in this industry. Now that I’ve been working as a professional for a few years, I wanted to give my point of view.

Starting My 3D Modeling Venture in Blender

For years I’ve been intrigued with 3D Modeling, yet simultaneously intimidated at the thought of learning it. Classes in college taught me a few basic, yet niche things in Autodesk’s 3DsMax. I really didn’t retain much of what I was taught, because I was lacking a true understanding of core 3D Modeling concepts. Something clicked within me recently: it’s about time I properly learn how to 3D model.

Allow Me to Introduce Myself: Aspirations in Media Production

I’m Antonio Cribari, and my friends and family call me Tony. I grew up in middle-class suburbia with my hard working family who placed a strong sense of purpose in me. My friends didn’t understand my mentality growing up. For instance, I talked about my dream of owning a studio to produce movies and music. Like an adult in the body of a teenager, I often felt alone with my aspirations.
