All Access Fridays Featuring Ace Wilson

 
 

For the tenth installment of All Access Fridays, Ace Wilson will be leading Part 2 of a Music Video Workshop to guide through the basics and help you create ideas for your own music video.

Ace Wilson is a queer and transgender artist of color who currently focuses on video media after realizing the true power that video media has on influencing the world. 

In high school, Ace was really into watching documentaries, especially the ones about space where that omnipresent white man voice is like "As we travel, billions of light years across the galaxy, we will discover what humans call a galactic star cluster." Ace used to thrive off those type of documentaries. Little did they know that their fascination with documentaries as a piece of art and an educational tool would lead them to become a videographer as a profession.

Ace is grateful to have had many opportunities to get hands-on skills and experience with video, with the most recent and profound opportunity, becoming a KEXP intern. They are also a musician, so naturally they've been sucked into the world of music videos. Ace realized that they wanted to create music videos artist after they noticed that they spend a lot more time watching music videos compared to the amount time watching films. They love music videos because of their flexibility. For example, music videos can be super clean and to the point or experimental and edgy, it's really about what the musician wants to convey. Ace also appreciates the fact that music videos can leave emotional impact on the viewer in such a short amount of time. 

Ace is excited to share their knowledge with you so that you can sculpt your music videos into what you want them to be.

Join us for the sixth installment of All Access Fridays featuring Nic Masangkay who will lead a songwriting & music production workshop.

Nic Masangkay is a 25-year-old, multiply-marginalized poet, music producer, and singer-songwriter based in Seattle. With poetry Buzzfeed claims “will leave you speechless” and music the Seattle Times reports is "synth-pop with overlaid vocals in the style of Reggie Watts," Nic is incredibly grateful that anybody wants to listen to the art that they create to survive.
