My Head is Overflowing with Ideas, Music and Lots of Questions!

“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 PictureInstrumental Music With Personality, For Your Project, From Podington Bear.

And Podington Bear.

The music is also available fromFree Music Archive

And you can also buy Podington Bear music fromiTunes.

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!

    That was a very cool little video! I'm really interested in Powtoon now. The music was great too. I'm glad you're feeling so inspired.

      Thank you! Powtoon is a great tool. I'm going to watch a few Youtube videos to see how other people are using it, because I'm sure I haven't yet discovered all the available features, and how they can be used effectively. Perhaps you could make a video to promote your business!

    Nice piece of video, Sue! You're really getting into different types of media these days – all very creative, and with interesting contents too! Good job!

      I'm learning a lot about the possibilities and having fun at the same time. I am guessing that different types of media appeal to different people, so it's good to use them all while sharing the same content. Also, I imagine a very short video with a simple message is more attractive than a longer one. Thank you for your kind words!

    Sue, that is a very cool video! The music does mesh with your animation. You've got me wanting to try out Powtoon, which I shall.

      I've been having a lot of fun with Powtoon. I'm sure you'd enjoy it too. It's easy to work out how to use it. My video is only one way of using the program. I shall have to do some more experimenting. Actually I'm working on an 'About Me' video at the moment. I thought this would be an effective way to share a few facts about myself. I haven't got an About Me page on my blogs so a video would fill that gap. Thanks for watching!
