First, Happy Birthday Baby will score its 9000th view on YouTube tomorrow. The views consistently roll in and there are a lot of positive comments. They say that slow and steady wins the race. OMG! Where could the finish line be?
The campaign song for Joe Biden has gotten legs. I was very unhappy when I learned that many of my emails to singer volunteers were ending up in their spam folders. When I discovered this I contacted all prospective participants through simple emails with no attachments and Messenger. I experienced dramatic attrition and then had to do more posting to boost the number of singers.
I'll share a little secret with you. I have sent out song packets to volunteers and have received 57 videos from participants so far. I expect to receive more through the weekend. And I will start mixing in Pro Tools on Monday.
When the mixing is complete I will move to Final Cut Pro where I will edit the video. What I am planning is a virtual choir where each participant gets their own square in a large grid. Since I don't really know how many people are participating yet, I have to wait to create the grid. Everything I've read suggests the video editing with an extensive grid is going to be very time consuming. I believe it will be worth it and am anxious to dive in. :)
