Computer graphics makes creating a poster such as you see above, so easy…I can find free clip art in seconds. Flip photos, do fonts… This is the kind of graphic work that I used to do at WBTV Television by hand using drafting boards, T-Squares and $2,000 worth of pens, markets, glue, scissors and hours of physical cut and paste Now, it can be done so easy. For this poster I used MS Publisher which is bundled with the MicroSoft Office Suite.
The same thing is true with audio production: Just a good microphone and you can produce what used to take thousands of dollars of audio gear. You can get an excellent shareware sound editing program called “Audacity”. These elements of show production are affordable and easy to use for any performing arts business that you want to pursue.
