I couldn't decide if what I created was a music video or a short film. I think it is both. I'd like to continue down that route.

I am finding it as a good motivating factor and mechanism to instigate music creation. I could take the method used here (film footage with a rough idea in mind, then edit to a click track with a even more detailed idea in mind, then write the music to that video) and expand it to being THE catalyst for my music.

Absolutely hit me up once you can. I am a full time freelancer at the moment and am feeling the economic hit, so spread the word and hit me up when you can.

"I couldn't decide if what I created was a music video or a short film"

I think that is what makes it an awesome video, or an gripping music-driven film.

Whichever one you are wanting to do, this is a perfect formula in my opinion.

I think I shall continue down this route and see where it takes me. I just need the gear, time, muse, and money! ;-)

Maybe I should call it a "short multimedia experience", but that sounds like some New Media Douchebag™ term. hrm.....

That does sound very New Media Douchebag™, sounds like one of those terms I'd imagine the CEO of my former advertising and design workplace patting himself on the back for on his deathbed - mainly because I imagine him on his deathbed an awful lot.

Oh, and: http://mykeamend.com/new/?p=97. I only have about 50 people who actually *read* my myspace blog, and I suspect even less for LJ. But my actual website traffic is pretty good.

Speaking of which: I've killed my site a bout a hundred times over the past hours trying to get it up.

I thought it was the video, but it was actually my style settings for quoted text. I feel like a dumbass... tried resizing, tried youtube, tried resizing the youtube embed... etc... etc...

Ah! Thank you very much for placing it on your blog.

My apologies for causing a false positive on your error meter. HTML/CSS can still be one heckava bitch. Although, life would be much better if IE died a quick, but painful, death.

If every browser but one died, I would be happy.

It doesn't even really matter which one.

I would prefer to see Firefox only just for convenience' sake, as it is cross-platform and not run by either OS maker.

I wonder who all these people are who keep deciding that we need yet another and another browser?

Anymore, by the time I am done making something look good in both IE and firefox, Mac and PC, then grudgingly adjusting for safari - I am done.

I got tired long ago of people wanting me to troubleshoot for this or some Johnny-come-lately 1% share browser or their uber-special .2% share OS, just so they can feel elite for not going with the sensible choice: The browsers that everyone on the interwebs programs for, the browsers that already work and need no troubleshooting.

Instead, I have to roll back and forth between several computers and try out each of their browsers, and there always seems to be another browser on the way.

It seems much like making up one's own language, and getting upset and indignant with everyone else for not trying to speak it.

Mozilla was the bane of my existence for years, because I really needed to focus on the 97%, and it was always a bit of work making something work and look properly in I.E. without mozilla completely screwing it up.

But now that it has a good enough share, I sort of feel that there should be no other browser... ever. It would certainly make my work easier.
