It’s been a few weeks since our last post in the “Imaging In 2018” series and boy, this is going to be a good one. I predict that a lot of us wonder what the future of Radio Imaging will be. Will it still exist? How will it change? This is going to be interesting! The “Imaging In 2018” Series looks at a range of topics, questions and thoughts from Radio Imaging Producers, Audio Engineers and anyone involved in the craft of “Radio Imaging” from across the world.
Imaging has always evolved over the years. The latest development I can see is that it is definitely more like music and everything you hear keeps musicality andsonic-ability (Is that a word) in mind. The techniques used in World Class Imaging today are not dissimilar from the current production of Music – but Imaging should always follow music trends, so it’s not really a surprise is it?
We decided to get the opinions of some of the most respected and talented Imaging and Audio Producers from across the world. As always, a big thanks to themfor taking the time to answer this interesting question!
This week’s question – Imaging is like Music and styles/techniques are always changing. How do you see the imaging world in the next 5-10 years? (Less zips zaps? / more sonic branding? / simplified? / bigger?)
