My short films are now live on YouTube and getting views. I am garnering feedback, all positive at present. ‘Awesome!‘ was one comment, from an author involved in TV crime drama production in the UK. I would definitely call that positive.
Here’s the link to the SF book series trailer.
And to the disability access documentary.
I have learned how to make a YouTube video channel, how to put in my profile photo (this is one taken by a college lecturer) and how to select the thumbnail picture for each film.
The music credits are placed under each film. In one case I needed to mail away for a licence to use the music; I did that and the licence was bounced back to my e-dress right away. All music was free to use provided the artists were credited.
I have found that YouTube has purchased a list of made to order music for film makers to use. This list can be searched for themes. There is no cost to use the tunes. This will simplify making films in future, but by sticking to that list, film makers might overlook some excellent tunes available to use but not paid for by YT. Also they would risk using the same tunes everyone else was using.
I really have come a long way in one year.
See my earlier posts for the explanations of how I filmed and produced these short films.
