Video: Melody For An Unwritten Pop Song

A video of another tune from Not To Scale. This was mainly an experiment in learning how to use Apple Motion to do video compositing.

The music was all recorded on the iPad, and the first attempt at the individual video clips was also recorded from the iPad. But for most of them, I had to go back and do them again with a proper camera because I found it too hard to stand in exactly the right place when I had the iPad screen facing away from me. So only the Hammond organ was filmed with the iPad.

The compositing in Motion was really tedious because my iMac couldn’t cope with so many HD video streams at once. So syncing each of the 7 videos to the audio was very much a question of trial and error.
