Hi! I have been away for a while and involved in other things so it has been a little while since I have posted.
I decided to post this piece called Realizations that I had composed first (back in the summer) and then decided that I would like to fit some video footage onto it. I have completed 2 other small videos with my music which I will post later.
I looked around the net for free footage and could not find anything suitable (just a lot of junk-youtube etc, etc) so I got into my small DVD collection and copied a small section of video near the end of the film and literally edited the film (not too much) to fit the music. (sort of backwards - I know) I used iMovieHD application which I think comes free with the mac OS and very easy to use and Quicktime PRo to get the file size down for the internet.
I sincerely hope I have not broken any copyright laws here as my only intention is to just practise putting music to video. The original score in the cut of the movie I am using used a more eastern flute treatment (very nice by the way) and it had some voice over in one part of it which helped fill in some of the blanks in the story. Since I had to dump all the original sound, I also added some waves crashing on the shore sound effects that I dug up.
For those who have not seen the movie, the woman (Geisha) on the cliff I believe is throwing away a silk hankerchief given to her as a keepsake by a very special love in her life who she thinks is gone forever. It has been a long while since I have watched the movie so my facts could be slightly off. Anyway it was a very sad moment for her not to mention the fact that her life has been extremely difficult all her life. (An understatement!)
Since I have finally put up my own flash site for my business, I have also included some of my music on the site. I did the site myself which is another story. I am trying to somehow incorporate music very slowly into my business. So having a site and space on an external server will come in handy for posting stuff on this forum. SO, Goodbye SoundClick!!!!
The first link is for the music and film 2:00 minutes
(just click on the link and see what happens! - it requires Quicktime player-available free for PC's & of course Macs from Apple.com -I think most people on Pc's would have this by now) -
The second link is just the mp3 music - which is slightly longer. (Requires your usual mp3 player-just click on the link)
