The Answer Is Yes – Videosong Collaboration with Polkadothaze

This is the first in what will hopefully turn out to be a series of videosong collaborations with the uber-talented Lucy Hirst (aka Polkadothaze).
For those interested, the video for this was all shot between Christmas 2011 and January 2012 using an iPhone 4, which also handled most of the audio recording due to the lack of a proper microphone. It came about while I was researching a tutorial article for MacUser magazine on how to make videosongs on your Mac – I figured that the best way to research the topic was to actually make a videosong of my own!
The track was put together in GarageBand and the video was edited in Adobe Premiere Pro, largely because of iMovie’s limited split-screen effects capabilities. Luckily for me, the leg-slapping was achieved in one take, so no major bruising was suffered! The article was eventually published on page 84 of the 17 Feb 2012 issue of MacUser (Vol.28, No.4). (See post below). Check it out if you want to find out how the video was done.
If you like how it turned out, please do like the vid on YouTube and subscribe to Lucy’s channel, as there’ll hopefully be more songs from this amazing new talent appearing soon.

Great New Musical Talent – Lucy Hirst (aka Polkadothaze)

Yesterday marked the YouTube debut of a truly remarkable musical talent. Lucy Hirst, aka Polkadothaze, at the age of only seventeen, manages to fuse angelic vocals and beautiful melodies with truly heartfelt lyrics that show a maturity beyond her years, and that will strike a chord with fellow teens everywhere. I have a feeling that this could be the start of something big, so if you love this song as much as I do, please do support her, like and subscribe to her channel, and expect more tunes soon!
