I've made a video showing how I make my acoustic cover videos for YouTube. I cover everything from the set up, mic choice, mic placement, video lighting, then into the box to show how I mix, edit and create graphics, using a combination of Ardour, Kdenlive and GIMP
Something a bit different for you this week! During my recent livestream (available to watch here) my partner took a quick behind-the-scenes video while I was playing. This is a continuation of that theme with more detail about where and how I produce music and videos. This is to be the first of a series of videos looking at how to produce music as an enthusiastic amateur on a budget using open-source software. Stay tuned for more!
Here's another new video for you, with thanks to the lovely people at Chester's finest bar The Cornerhouse
Here's my latest video featuring not one, not two, but THREE Bransbys!!
Well after much messing about and even more editing, the contributions of a bunch of marvellous people have come together for this video, thanks again to all who sent in videos!
I've been busy working on a new song during lockdown, you can take a listen on my Soundcloud below, but more excitingly, I'd like you to be in the video!! Sticking with the lockdown theme I'm going to make the video look like a Zoom meeting, so listen to the song, then imagine yourself in a Zoom meeting in work where someone has started playing this song, video your reaction as if in the meeting, and get it to me! Drop me a line for more details.
