THERE’S a couple more videos to edit and that’ll be all the footage from the Memorial Hall gig done. I get busy.
These last two songs – Devil’s Left Hand and Hangman’s Blues with premier in this Monday’s livestream into my private Facebook group– Dave Arcari’s Wildcats – then uploaded to my YouTube channel and provide content for a couple of scheduled Facebook posts.
Once done, I make a shopping list and head for Aldi in Alexandria for this week’s shopping and impress myself with the savings we make.
With all 15 of my songs from the show edited – plus two encores where I got my guest up on stage – I start thinking it might be good to compile the lot into a full-length ‘concert video’. I’d also quite like to charge a nominal fee and have it available on smart TVs rather than just online.
Netflix is likely to be impossible – not just because meeting the technical requirements would be hard, but also content has to be pitched through an agent. Amazon maybe not quite so hard, but still a chore especially as they need captions. Vimeo has an OTT service and is an app available on many TVs…and YouTube has no pay-per-view options.
My purpose here is not to try and make money (although any income streams welcome) but to (a) make the concert available and easily accessible for a wider audience and (b) give it some creedence and add a sense of value to the viewer.
I spend an inordinate amount of time researching options and possibilities and don;t end up much further down the line.
Back in the house I make a batch of pizza dough using the poolish prepared yesterday. It’s kinda messy and my least favourite part of the pizza process – but it’s worth the effort.
Margaret has a co-ordination meeting with folks form a couple of other local community groups and as they draw to a close I join them and have a beer and throw in my tuppence-worth 😉
