My YouTube stats show extremely few shares. So far, my videos have been antiviral. :clown:

I am doing videos to promote the music not because I want to be a video artiste. Since I think of it as a promo vehicle, views are something I pay attention to.

I did think of a concept for a video for the song that I am currently working on. I might reduce the reliance on greenscreen and include my cats. I might try to incorporate a little humor but not get as silly as dressing up as a Bond villian. But first I need to finish the song. It's exhausting being a one-man band/video producer! :help:

But I would second sjm (also not being asked of course) that all which suits the video should be done - greenscreen or not.

I guess greenscreen cats is surely a clickopener :clown: It's a business already

greenscreen horses would be top


Yes, we are both trying to figure out the video thing. FYI, I found your attempts to be more creative and interesting than my own.

Since I have 3 real cats, I probably should not need to purchase stock footage of cats. Although it would be easier to use stock footage than getting my cats to do anything specific. :)

Thanks. That line was actually improvised while recording. That whole section was kind of a freeform experiment. :)

Yes, you will. Aika is recording backing vox for my next song right now. I appreciate your enthusiasm. :)

Thanks for listening and commenting, 9K! Your feedback regarding mixes is helpful so I am glad you approve. :)

Love the synth sound at about 00:38. Almost like you have a flanger hooked up to it. Coolness.

That synth sound is a slightly tweaked Repro5 preset. I was moving the mod wheel while playing creating that flange-like effect. That sound grabs people's attention. It seems that older folks think it's cool and younger people think it is dated and odd. Go figure. :help:

Thanks for commenting. :)
