Posted:How do you chose whcih song you want for a video?

Do you chose the song as you are starting to edit...

Posted:I'm a fan o the latter, I'll hear a song and it conveys the style I want to portray in the vid. Then I'll try to match my clips up to the song or go fer a clean spin.

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

Posted:I like to find music that mostly no one i know knows of, that has a similar speed to the footage. I like it when nobody knows the music, but they like it.

Posted:I edit my video, see how long it is - then sort all my mp3's by length and see which ones come up smile
It's nice when a song ends as the video does, but I don't like editing to a fixed length.

Posted:I like listening to songs and playing with all sorts of ideas in my head for things that could go along with it, but all the music I use in my videos is all original stuff that I have my brother make for me. The current video is just a hardcore guitar with hardcore distortion.

The way video making works for me:
I spin, my girl friend records it with a cam she borrows from school.
I spin, play and goof around untill we fill up the camera and all the disks we have.
She then has a field day taking her favorite stuff and editing it (She seriously loves it...and also loves to show me off to all her friends etc...infact, I've just got a few requests for birthday party performances from a few people who saw the video in progress.)
Somewhere along the way my brother sends me the song he made (he also enjoys it as it gives him a chance to do stuff he wouldn't get to do with his band etc...and gives him complete controll over the music).
My girlfriend then goes and makes sure the video fits with the music to one degree or another, and touches up here and there etc... so it all looks nice.

It's a fun process from start to finish and everyone involved has a blast. Nothing more fun than sitting around watching videos of our selves doing stupid things.
