Default My band's newest Music Video

Hey guys this has nothing to do with business, My music is my release.
So I figured I'd share, This is a video from a show last month with live footage & audio blended with the studio version of the song. There's a spot or 2 where the audio is a little outta sync with the video but I produced the video myself & I am no expert at it.

The song is called Goodbye
The Band's name is JACK SOMEBODY
You can hear & see more at http://myspace.com/jacksomebodymusic

Goodbye


So I know the video is a little grainy but what do you think?

Very good. I like the music, and also like the fact that your vocals come through well. I like that in any type of music. Keep it up. Sounds/looks great!

Chuck you did a great job with that. Mixing a studio audio track with a live video is the way to go! The audio was fantastic, the video was great too. It looked like you used a bunch of effects in it. Some speed effects and some others.

Also it was great seeing people jumping around in the foreground. How many times do you go to a club and everyone just stands there. Not at a Jack SomeBody show!

Great work!

What kinds of things have you been doing to promote this?

How long did it take to put all together?

Thanks guys.

It took a couple nights tinkering around with it, trying to edit & play with the video track, Then the live audio was good but not great, yet I wanted to get the introduction/crowd on there in the begginning. So I had to use a second (Audio) program to make the 2 audio tracks weave in & out of one another. I should have let the live audio track run a few seconds longer at the end because that song ends abrubtly & there is always a delay before the croud realizes that one is over & cheers but oh well.
Then I had to re-sync that new blended audio back to the video again using the 1st program.

I added some assorted video effects to spice it up a bit since all the footage is from 1 camera & one angle, Otherwise It think it would get really boring to watch.

For my first ever audio video project.... I'm happy with it.

Chuck, you did a fantastic job!

What kinds of things are you doing to promote it? Can you use it to help get your band into other clubs or help with your bookings?

I'm sure the video will come in handy for that from time to time, but it's really more for fun & for the enjoyment of our fans. Our plays frequently & we are serious about what we do, but our range is kind of limited as we all have days jobs,families & businesses. So most of the clubs & promotors within our range already know us well. The occasional festival or benefit pops up that the person in charge may not be familiar with us & now they can view a live video of what our performance is typically like.

New content on the myspace page always helps bring the fans back to the page too which is never a bad thing.

Here is the other video we have posted. This one was years earlier (before we really started playing out much with the current member line-up) It's footage of some kandid crap, rehearsals, & actual footage of us in the studio recording the audio your actually listening to.

The song is called: Better things to come
Better Things to Come

Chuck! That is so much fun! You did a great job on that one too!

What do you like most and least about being in a band? Even look back on your band experience thus far?

Easypro,
I will deffinately check that out tommorrow night when I have more time.

Steve,

I have enjoyed most of my music experiance. I can say the lousy part is that you may find other musicians that are good & join your dream for a while but rarely do they put in any effort outside of music e.i. the booking, management, promotions end of it.

I've met & played with alot of cool people (I've been in about 14 groups over the years) & you become close friends with the guys/girls in the band at the time you are playing together. But you find that the friendships are basically superficial. Once you leave playing in a band together, they are not really friends at all. It's wierd & hard to explain.I have maybe a handful of true friends from past band members that I could count on it I needed them. This is out of probably nearly 50 musicians I've worked with.

What is hard too is that, well my brother was into cars, off roading, playing pool etc. & has a few dozen friends. Playing in a band makes it tough. You have work, family, responsibilities, then a band that rehearses 2-3 times a week & plays 3-5 times a month. Doesn't leave much time for anyone else & you keep thinking well these guys are good friends. Then the band splits & you haven't heard from them in years, your both busy with life & of course your new band. You make a lot of aquaintences & people who say "yeah I know Chuck" but you don't really "know" many people at all ya know?

Anyway that sucks, but the creativity has always been really enjoyable & music is a friend that has been there for me, in my darkest hours & the best times in my life.
