How To Make An Inspiring Music Video

Today, You Tube, tomorrow the world.(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It has occurred to me that videos that are intended to be moving or inspirational follow a formula. Watch any sporting event, any retrospective of a person’s career and you will see the following algebraic formula in action:

m + rv / s = i

In the formula that I am putting forth, m stands for music, rv represents random video, s is slow motion and i is inspiration. So with that, you can see that I am proposing that if you combine music with some random video of people doing stuff, some of which is in slow motion, you get an inspirational music video.

The Sunday Film Series (On Friday): The Portable Black Hole

Yes, it is Friday and my film series runs on Sundays. I’ll get things back on schedule next week. For this week, please pretend it is Sunday and read on.

People know I am all about science. Physics, astronomy, whatever it takes.

The Sunday Film Series: Father’s Day

I decided to break my letter to you into two parts. I know that you are very busy slap fighting your son and teaching him to play the pipe organ by showing him You Tube videos. It was just simple consideration for another person’s time that led me to split my thoughts between two letters. You’re familiar with being considerate of others, right? Wait, scratch that last question. I almost forgot who I was talking to.

Just like the last letter, I am going to use this one to suggest some You Tube videos you might want to find and look over. You seem to understand things when they are presented to you in the online video format. Given that I took an elbow in the side of the head during your inflight slap fight with your son, 12-B, I have no qualms about throwing out a few thoughts based on observations I made of your behavior and your son’s.
