TV. Movies. Advertisements. Shoot … even Facebook and Instagram. In order for the public to see any finished product, there is a lot that happens behind the scenes.
Beyonce has had a team working behind the scenes since
she was 10 years old, maybe even before that. There have been people on here team, who invested time, talents, energy, and yes, even money into every level of her career. Of course, the people she started with in 1992 aren’t the same people today, but there have always been people behind the scenes that give us “THE” Queen Bey.
The work that happens behind the scenes is just as, if not more impressive than the things we see. I remember doing the photo shoot for my official head shots, taking about 2 hours to produce only about 6 usable shots. The photographer gave me so much direction, that at the time, made no sense, but his attention to details, made my pictures look effortless. Even the simplest things, take a lot to get done right.
People only tend to want to be the one on the stage, or the one in the audience. Hardly ever do people want to put in the work that produces what we see. From creating, to planning, to prepping, to producing, to directing, to editing, to packaging, to promoting ; for every thing we enjoy, there is more than meets the eye.
