Get Wise use free apps and software to create our music and media. We want to show you how you can make stuff too, even on a minimal budget. It’s important to realise that if you want to make music, shoot videos, design a website or record a radio podcast that you definitely can and should, for work or for fun. According to Ofcom, the UK's communications regulator, we spend more time using media and communications technology than we do sleeping! With global technology changing the future of work too, we need to make sure that we are accessing these modern platforms so as not to be left behind. Think about older relatives and texting and how useless they are at it. We don’t want to be like them, do we? The thing is, technology today is so easy to use, there really is no excuse.
Being Pro on a Budget
Can free stuff look professional though? Check out the links below to some examples of creative stuff produced using apps on a smartphone or tablet to find out for yourself. We believe it can.
