Woo Woo! Wanna see my video? (Hunt, Romano, Grisetti!)

   Sorry about the earlier rant against YouTube. Don't know what the problem was ... perhaps a result of our recent electrical storm. (In my neighborhood the electricity was out for 3.5 hours.) May be that the Clear Communications WiFi HotSpot was malfunctioning. Good thing there's a Language Nanny here at the Forum. I don't deal well with frustration, and I have a fecund vocabulary of rich Anglo Saxon adjectives and gerunds! I could've got myself into trouble.


   Whatever the reason for the Google blockage, it passed, and just a few minutes ago I uploaded my most recent Answer Print.

   There's a long black clip in the middle of the video. This is intentional. The black area will be filled with multiple split-screen videos of The Strip (with SFX, "casino voices," and maybe some music), mostly night shots, culminating in the Belagio fountains.

   My principal concerns are these:

   1. Bill, you commented that the text at the bottom of the frame was cut off. In my own viewing, via my 17.3-inch HP laptop, there hasn't been any clipping at the sides, bottom, or top. There are two reviews rollups and a final rollup of ending text, with my own quote at the bottom. Are any of these clipped at sides, top, or bottom?

   2. Guys, my hearing is not the best. Should I do any polishing or tweaking of the aplitude and frequency of my VO?

   3. And, on a subjective basis, am I depending too much on the smarts of viewers to percieve both narrative and visual components, when each demands simultaneous attention?


   Here's the link:

    In answer to your thread question, Yes, glad for the opportunity. I watched it about 3 times before replying in your thread.


    This is not a critique but rather questions about your video presentation.


    1. At the end of the video, you invite the viewer to view Kick Start previews of your new book at your web site, but I do not see the web site address in the video. Feature to come?


    2. You have a dazzling effect of passing months with text zooming in from the background. Very attractive. What is the effect representing? Passage of time until the book comes out or something else?


    3. Your voice has a good audio quality as well as a distinguished quality to it. What are you picking up on that makes you think that you want tweak it?


    4. I did not pick up on any cutting off of text viewing the YouTube video with  my 19 inch Widescreen computer monitor.


    5. Are you planning on doing any more with the panning and zooming of the maps in the early parts of the video?


    Thanks for the good news about Google and YouTube. I have not been having any issues there and was going to start researching the matter for you. But all seems well for you now in that regard.

    Another 5 watches of your YouTube video, focusing on those months. Have you given thought to changing the months to years, but keeping the effect?
