    As you may have noticed, I’ve been trying to get out and do some promotional things in the last few months and somebody suggested I should try and make some sort of a performance video for a track off my “current” CD. Well I’ve tried over the last couple of days, but since I play things differently each time it was a most frustrating time. I’m a terrible mime – maybe next time I will just film it while recording.

    For what its worth, here I am on my Limerick miming to Eleanor Plunkett (yes I know I’ve changed a note in the melody)… enjoy

    If anybody has any tips for working with HD video on a PC I would appreciate hearing them.

    cheers, adam

    @Rod thanks for checking it out.

    @Jessica, I am on first name terms with the naked man and he thinks he is very pretty, mind you he may be delusional.

    @Saul, big compliment coming from you.

    Adam,
    I agree with Jessica about the naked man :-)
    BUT: The music is wonderful and the sound so good and clear. It`s a pleasure to listen!

    Thanks Anje,

    It was recorded on the same Limerick lap harp that I am miming with badly in the video. I only bought it for doing performance work but then people started to say when they were buying CDs that they wanted to hear recordings played on the same instrument that they were seeing (not an unreasonable request). I’m surprised that the instrument sounds as nice as it does.

    I will make sure that there is less nudity in future posts.

    Is it like a video song, like Pample moose (sp?) does?

    Jennifer, in a true video song like the Pomplamoose videos, what you see is actually what you are hearing, ie you

    I just watched – very clever! I loved the naked guy, except I wish he was slightly more clothed – perhaps a bearskin or something? Anyway, very fun!

    Like a caveman guy you mean Sharon? I will take that on board,

    Awww, I loved naked guy! Maybe changed his name to minimally-clothed guy, and come up with a different minimal outfit in every video! :-D A caveman thing (yes, that’s what I meant), then maybe the next time just a wide 70’s tie, then next time a vest with no shirt underneath, then – hmm, out of ideas, but I loved him! It was totally unexpected, and made the video stand out from other videos.

    Worse than the naked guy: electric guitar.

    OTOH: you sure can tootle a flute/recorder/whatever!
