I'm pushing PUBLISH with my eyes squeezed tightly shut.

So here's the deal. The video was debuted yesterday at the Gutenberg Oktoberfuss event. Although it received rave reviews, I was less than ecstatic. The guy sitting at the sound board, seemed to, well, how do I put this? He didn't take much pride in doing a job well done.

Not only did he not size any of the videos properly, but he didn't turn the volume on until after it began...thus people missed the beginning of each video. Annnd. More to my dismay, he had the treble turned way up and the bass completely down. No bass means no impact.So the painstaking effort I put in to hit certain beats was completely lost.

I'm uploading the video right now on to Vimeo. But since there hasn't been an official "approval" and since I'm a super perfectionist about certain things, there are a few adjustments I want to make, I'm not making the video live. But. Before you have a little moment, I'm providing the Vimeo Link and password here for anyone that would like to go watch it.

Well done. I'm always surprised when people can do effective visuals with pure text.

Megs that was really good. T.J enjoyed it too

thanks everyone. I'm still really nervous about people seeing it and knowing it was me. I'll like it better when people see it and not know who did it.

That was just awful!

Seriously, very good.

And I know how you must have felt to see the video presentation falter because of an incompetent technician (or whoever he was). I entered a video/film contest one year (hundreds of years ago, if I remember). The year before I had entered the same contest and won two first prizes. But that second year they destroyed my chances with a very bad presentation. The audio was all jacked up. I was bummed.

I think it is beautiful, Meg. Nicely done.

I was at Oktoberfuss, so I can sympathize with your frustration at the poor job of the tech. :( But, I think the quality of your work still showed through the faulty presentation -- the videos are awesome, and I think that was clear.

if the word was "cruelly" it would be spelled wrong, but since the word is "cruelest" it isn't. Thanks.
