“Come and look at my new video!” I shout and my children come running.
I always get so excited when I create something new. I have to share with someone… immediately. It’s just as well my children are willing to look at my latest video or listen to my just-finished podcast. They’re great. They say all the right things. They’re very encouraging. I guess that’s what family is all about.
Yesterday, I got excited about a new music discovery.
“Come and see what I found!” I shouted and my children came running. “About 500 pieces of music by an artist called Podington Bear. They’re all available for use through Creative Commons.” My children were suitably impressed.
Podington Bear is really Chad Crouch, and his music is tagged as melodic, film music. Perfect for my videos and podcasts.
All the Podington Bear music can be downloaded for free, and can be used for any non-commercial project (with the appropriate attribution). And if a commercial license is required, one can be purchased for a very reasonable fee.
I found two Podington Bear websites: Sound of Picture: Instrumental Music With Personality, For Your Project, From Podington Bear.
And Podington Bear.
The music is also available fromFree Music Archive.
Of course, once I’d discovered this music, I wanted to make a new video so I could use some of it. But which Podington Bear piece? It took me a long time to decide. So much choice. And what should I make my video about? Hours later, this is what I’d created…
Lots of Unschooling Questions…
“Come and listen to my idea for a new video!” I shout and my children come running.
“Another one? Didn’t you just publish a video?”
I did, but suddenly my head is overflowing with new ideas. Now which one shall I use first? And which piece of music shall I choose? This might take some time. I might be gone a while…
Don’t you just love creating? I do!
