Righto chaps. I am about to revamp the stuff on youtube.
I am re-uploading all the films from the 8 DVD sets in a format that makes google happy – that means uploading them in order starting from 2008 and moving through to KTL 8 15 which you guys have just watched.
I also need to get rid of what the boss calls clutter. So all the other films will be set to unlisted and will not turn up in a youtube search and they will not be visible on my keepturningleft youtube space
Thanks for the appreciation you have shown for the films – it is odd looking back at the old ones – The first year on sd looks bloody horrible. I look a lot younger – obviously sailing is hard on a man.
I would harvest your favourites using a ripper. I will eventually re-upload the good ones to a youtube space to be called MOBs re-united.
The dull ones about fettling will bite the dust forever.
The good news is that the vimeo stuff is going to remain unscathed.
On the bright side it will make it so much easier of the youtubists to find their way around and eventually accidentally bump into a paypal button
I have a few questions about the last film – I would like your thoughts on the last films
There was a lot of sailing in it – I let that opening shot run – maybe a minute was that too long?
and the boat self steering – I let that run for ages.
there were also those two tacks filmed in that narrow sound with the wind coming at us from lots of directions – pretty long bits.
the music – too much? not enough?
the balance between boat noise and the music – how was that – the balance changes for the worse when using a tablet which spits audio at you from speakers the size of a grain of rice. Bigger speakers move more air – the sound is better – ditto headphones – they do weird stuff too
Audio levels – what were they like?
there was a lot of script in that one
six pages I think – probably 21800 words
tIt was a shame it did not end on some good sailing but that was the way the day went
Drone – better off without one or should I buy one..
going through the gap might have looked good on a drone – on the other hand a drone might make it look like a it was 100 yards wide.
I think without it you are in the cockpit with me – the drone would take the viewer somewhere else – more an observer rather than a participant.
I am very pleased that you guys have found the films to be rewarding in some way
