This was an especially fun challenge and we received so many great submissions, it was hard to narrow the selection down to just three. Congratulations to this week’s Top Picks for the Cinematic Production Challenge. Go show some love to @davidf_music @kaastro @spokenbird

Production Challenge #8 is ready to go! Thank you everyone who participated in Challenge #7. There were so many great submissions and the feedback was positive all around. It’s exciting to hear how these are helping so many of you improve your production skills.

This week’s challenge is “Cinematic”. You must use at least 5 of the preselected samples, BPM and given key.  The idea is to help you focus on the writing process and less on sample selection and sound design. Try to make fast decisions and keep your creative juices flowing. Don’t get stuck on one aspect for too long. Let it flow.

Incorporate the sounds in your own style, while at the same time giving it a cinematic feel.

4. Submit the track back to the comments section of the post in the Facebook group.
