Premium Beat is “a curated royalty free music website that provides exclusive, high-quality tracks and sound effects for use in new and traditional media projects, including videos, films, apps, games, and television programming.” Their blog, The Beat, talks about the latest new in the production industry and also posts tips on video editing, video production, motion graphics, audio editing and more! The blog is very easy to navigate in and has tabs along the top and some that run down the side for quick and easy access.
The Video Production tab was one that I found super interesting. The posts range from “How to Pick the Best Video Production Mic” to “Professional Video Editing Tips and Techniques” to “How (and When) to Use a Steadicam Shot”. I find all of these topics super helpful and very easy to follow. The Beat does a fantastic job covering a variety of topics that allow people to expand their knowledge and gain new skills.
The Beat also posts articles with tips on how to use different software. They have articles on After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Cinema 4D, Avid Media Composer Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, and Smoke. You can find some articles under a couple different categories depending on their content, but all are very informative and help people discover new ways to use various software programs.
