Like most people, I really Love a good video. & these days a video can help you reach more people than any great audio recording–uhhh, YouTube?!?!? I mean face it: would anybody know who Walk Off The Earth is without a good video? And they're obviously talented musicians...
So my next Power mission was to find a way to make a video for one of my songs. Keeping in mind that I have a budget of about $0, how the heck could I produce a video to put up on youTube that could at least semi-hold its weight.
Then it hit me–an equalizer meter!!! If i could find some software or an app that would be activated by and move to whatever music is playing, all i'd have to do is video record it while it's playing one of my joints and then upload the video to youTube.
I found some really cool desktop software as well as a couple great iPhone apps that had what I was lookin for. Now the issue was how to record the screen either on my iPhone or right off of my laptop. Not a screenshot, but a 'screen movie'...
After a little digging I almost died when I found the perfect app–but Apple pulled it from the iStore in July—AAAARGHHHH! Fortunately there are a few software applications for desktop computers that allow you to "screen record." And the most awesome thing is that there's one right on my Macbook Pro–Quicktime!!!
Well, I wasted no time and did it until I got it right. And a little latency notwithstanding, my video for "Look What's Comin" turned out pretty good, if i do say so myself.
Now the plan for the REAL videos--can you say KICKSTARTER!?!?!?!
