Audio for video, microphones and a home-made windshield for the Zoom H2 recorder

As we filmed in the canal cruising area in Ancoats last Saturday afternoon, there was a rather funny moment when I had my hand up David’s shirt. Nothing untoward was going on, I was putting a tie-clip microphone on him.

Making MP4 files stream

Mp4/H.264 files give great quality for online video in web players such as the free Flowplayer. But they must ‘stream’. In other words they need to start playing before the whole file has loaded (which may take several minutes). (more…)

The highs and lows of film-making and why relatively few good videos get made

Watching the G20 protests on TV it seemed that every other person had a camera. Yet only two video clips of the Ian Tomlinson incident have come to light so far. One was shot by a member of the public, the other by a broadcast news team and despite professional cameras being outnumbered by ‘activist’ cameras to the tune of hundreds to one.

A fluke? I suggest not. (more…)

Speaker of the US House of Representatives infringes rights of music composer

Incompetech.com is a wonderful website that offers hundreds of original music tracks for free use. Most are released under a Creative Commons licence (a few are now in the public domain) and the only stipulation is that you must include a credit for the composer: Kevin MacLeod.

It isn’t a lot to ask. But still some people can’t be bothered.

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the US House of Representatives, is one of a list of people who have used a track, but give no credit. Her video Capitol Cat Cam, which uses the music track ‘Scheming Weasel’, has been watched on YouTube more than 325,000 times.

In his blog, Kevin MacLeod puts a brave face on the situation. But I say it is absolutely disgraceful that even people in government show this blatant disregard for creative people and their work. They should set an example.

I hope this won’t deter Mr MacLeod. Some of us appreciate his generosity and music.
