Today we’d like to introduce you to Ike Carter.
Hi Ike, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
Things started for me about 17 years ago, I fell in love with music production and wanted to become a great producer, so I began recording songs at 14 and I’ve never really stopped. Along the way, I picked up drums as a principle instrument which gave me a foundation in music.
I produced original music with indie artists all the way through high school and college. After some time of diving into the music business, my success started to develop within sound engineering and mixing. After graduation from Florida A&M, I moved to Atlanta where I continued to build my understanding for production technology, I picked up cameras, lights, anything that I could learn in order to have a better understanding of shows. Now living in LA, I focus on my production business (Black Giraffe studios) a company and brand that is build to bring you immersive production experiences.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Obstacles? Haha yea! Time, Money, Ideas, Personal, Paperwork!
And the list goes on, but those of us who work on this side of the business find pleasure in solving problems. That is what makes us great!
