Description

bizarre
very chaotic, noisy. The sounds move alot which is probably good rather than getting lodged in one part of the brain. Hard to pick stuck sounds out of there - hate resorting to brainpicks or bellum-floss.

symbolic of the times
'Tis better to do something than nothing, to play even if inspiration sleeps. You never know when something buried in the archival heap is uncovered to be genius, or, at the very least, somehow perfectly symbolic of the times...

breaking up the hour vid into 10 minute sections is proving a logistical nightmare. this project may be scrapped

If songs and videos were easy...
EVERYONE would be doing it! :-)

Hey, this is an EDUCATION. You, and I and others here are struggling along with this one-minute song and video, finding out that putting all this together, and then showing others how to do it, is REALLY HARD!

There are so many little tips and tricks along the way, or is that trips and ticks? Anyway, be patient, do a little at a time, and you'll get there.

Write a quick outline of the steps you want to show, then script out each little piece (1. how to record; 2. how to save the mp3; 3. how to fill out that submission form on Macjams, etc.)

Or else maybe you should record a short video showing all of the outtakes and things that went wrong in trying to record the educational video. Those can be educational and entertaining too! :-)

Just the intro video and your idea for this got me all excited, and now I want to copy you and do one too! I video-taped myself showing the steps I take to write and record music and make videos, but it is hidden on the old "Dance of the Technoids" DVD I sold long ago. I need to do that again!

ttfn,
Drakonis

dimm witness said 2323 days ago (June 13th, 2011)
yes!
everyone should make a video of how they do a song and put it on MacJams -- and put the vid on YouTube. you have great ideas. this first video will flop because I just shot an hour of footage with no regard to anything. breaking it up into 10 minute sections is a drag. would be better to shoot 10 min. sections to begin with, and make each section about a step as you mention.

I would love to see how each of us does a song and I bet I would learn a LOT. since most of the time I'm making it up as I go along, and too lazy and proud to follow directions or ask for help.

Yes
this is a great idea, really enjoyed your videos. It can be time consuming making them but worth it once you get the hang of it and it then becomes easier once you get into a set way of working. I do quite a lot but I've not done any educational ones.
We can all learn new tips and tricks from this great idea.
