I have about 20-30 original songs, mostly instrumental, from the last few decades of released and non-released CDs that I'm trying to get up on Youtube. I don't have enough extra time these days to spend shooting and editing and I can't afford to hire someone, but if you or someone you know has an interest in using some of my originals in a project and/or for portfolio use, please let me know.
I have a bunch of other songs (although I certainly wouldn't mind having any of those already uploaded at Youtube re-done sans the Visualizer), that I haven't done anything with video-wise. I believe there to be a couple of cool tracks and I posted some at one of my websites if you'd like to take a listen. The original files are all .aif or .wav.
Okay, I thought this post was removed, but it was moved over to this forum from the FCP X forum, which is the only one I ever view or use. In fact, I didn't know this forum existed. (Maybe I shouldn't have put "OT" in the title).
This thread is about independent music being offered, not about the workings of FCP X. So this is the appropriate forum.
Yes, I get it. Clearly, whether yours or mine or the admins, it's an opinion as to what is or isn't relevant to a forum. I'm looking for an editor, FCP X or otherwise. To me it makes sense to put a post like this in the forum where the editors are. But that's my opinion.
Anyway, if there is no interest, I still have the trusty iTunes Visualizer. Not exciting, but better that a blank screen. I wish I had more time to devote to the music videos, but I don't as I need to shoot and edit instructional video first to keep the business going.
We did email back and forth about this subject a couple of months ago. Do you still have some interest in cutting a video? I didn't hear back so I figured you got busy with other projects.
Sounds good. I realize I probably didn't word the post Subject very clearly. Ideally, what I'm looking for is someone who is interested in making a music video with one of the songs that they can use for their Vimeo portfolio or such and that I can then post up at Youtube. Bottom line is that I would like to get some music videos made and I don't have time these days to devote to the editing. (Struggling mightily with the economy.)
Of course, if you or someone else can place one of the songs in a TV show, commercial, or in a movie for one of the songs, I'm not adverse to that either.

Since this thread is getting slightly more action than the one I started, & because it's related... I'll say it again.
Wouldn't it be a nice idea to have a forum category devoted to Member Services?
People could list their talents, skills, resources, etc.
Also they could list the ones that are for free or fee.
This way, a guy with music could find the guy with videos, etc.
Just think of the collaborative creativity that could ensue...
Script revisions before shooting bad video.
Lighting tips to save something that couldn't be rectified in post.
Editing to make or break the project.
Colorizing, effects, finishing & polishing, even marketing & distribution...
Not to mention all the guys here that teach, consult, write, direct, etc...
