This is vlog #3. In this vlog I discuss collaboration in the creative world and welcome the change of the new name: ” With Gomes Productions”.
In the last post I talked about the name change and in this vlog I wanted to announce it in person via video and further detail the thoughts behind the name change and my plans for WGP and myself.
The New Name:
Creating the name was a great journey and process.
The acronym is course of the same. (Like I discussed in the last post) I always liked how WGP sounded. That paired with the technique of deliberate limitations (sometimes focusing in and limiting oneself options helps not only inspire decisions but also creativity) helped spark the name.
Not only did the name describe what I wanted the brand to represent but it also sounds simple and elegant.
Let’s discuss the new name itself here.
So if we break down the name:
With represents collaboration and creative mixing of art-forms.
Gomes represents my leadership, visionary and direction in projects (varying my degree of overseeing and control when needed; when I’m not the lead or main creator on a project).
Productions represents the creative discipline and work of producing music, dance and cinema.
Myself and The Company
Myself and WGP will move forward and make euphoric moments.
Myself and WGP will leave a legacy. We will make an impact with art. We will represent an idea, a movement. We will create.
Now for projects at WGP, I’ll be the person tying in all the visions; Things like consulting, directing and or visualize projects. Going through my touch and filter so they come out the best that they can. And again, how much of involvement on a project that I’m not a lead or main creator depends on the talent and the collaborator on the project as each projects and individual requires different treatment.
Things that encompass a lot different elements and workings requires a visionary and a group of talented people.
Now I’m becoming bigger than the company and the company is becoming bigger than me and all together the movement is bigger than the sum of its parts; it’s about the people, the art and what it all means. So in all, with me and WGP being our own entities, I see great things for WGP and my self.
Excited about the name change and building the team.
With Gomes Productions; the melding and combination of music, dance and cinema in an inspiring collaborative environment that yield infinite possibilities orchestrated and directed towards new creations.

Intro Part of Vlog
Hi everyone it’s Alex Gomes. This is Vlog #3, in this one were going be talking about the name change, collaboration and also the legacy we want WGP to leave and also myself.
In the last post I talked about how were going from “Wavy G Productions” to “With Gomes Productions”. This is the name that will create the legacy for what the brand, the company is going represent. I want to start building a team and create a unified vision that has my direction which is why I put Gomes in the name and the with represents collaboration.
Some of the things to think about when you think about With Gomes Productions is..Think possibilities, think music of course, think dance of course, think cinema of course but also think collaboration and again think possibilities. Think expressing and communicating ideas, messages and stories.
I want to represent possibilities as well, I want to represent what an artist is..not to be boxed in one particular category.
Music and dance; I want my music to move people, I want music to move me and vice versa. I want my artwork to move people either emotionally and or rhythmically..in every sense in those words. It takes dedication, discipline, continued growth and innovation..and I feel it deep within me.
I hope my work continues to get better and it really does..just resonates..resonates and..does great things.
Outro of Vlog
I see a lot of talented people and they just a need a system..a process..a vision. I will look out for and search out those people. Already have a couple of people in mind, and I hope I continue to find more talented people, I just got to be more proactive about it.
Things that encompass a lot different elements and workings require a visionary and a talented group of creative people. And it’s a beautiful thing to know who did what.
And that’s the thing too, you see the great things that are on the surface of what comes of the work but then what to remember and or know is there was a beautiful group of people behind it..that made it possible..made this feature film possible, a piece of music possible, a dance event possible, a sound..a movement possible.
I have a lot of ideas and projects in the works..well not a lot projects in the works..let me correct that; I have some projects in the works that I look forward to sharing with all of you and then a lot of ideas for future projects. You have to tackle one at thing at time. Not speak any more than I have to. Thank you for watching.
