To finish up the hour long discussion "Birth Of A Song", I decided to create a music video, since prior to that (in the discussion) it had been just snippets of the song.

My first thought was to do a lyric video. Then, I decided that we might be able to do a sort of "hybrid" video.
This (like the rest of the discussion) was filmed by my wife using her iPhone6.

So, in case you did not watch the discussion (it is, after all an hour long), here is the video of...


A LITLLE BIT OF ME
(the link should take you to the end where the video starts)


The video below starts at the beginning. To see just the "music video", go to the end - 1:00:10...

Every new update and rendition is as marvelous as the prior. Your wife achieved very professional video footage with her Iphone. She is an integral part of the success of both the story and video.

This video and song will never grow old.

An ambitious project indeed. Far from just "a little bit", I'd say that's a lot of you right there smile

Wow - great job on the video! And a very good tune as well smile I didn't get a chance to watch the whole thing, but I would agree that it looks really well done for having been shot on an iPhone.

It's always a pleasure to see the process people use to create their tunes - thanks for sharing!
