So I worked on a short film with my daughter this summer highlighting another passion of mine (fly fishing). At first I just used the stock jingles that came with iMovie, but as it went on I rewrote the music myself till eventually it was all me. So here's the video and the songs I wrote, I played all the instruments as well. I also entered it in a film contest, so if you like it please throw a vote my way, thanks!

Thanks guys! Yeah it was an interesting process trying to figure out what sort of song fit the moment. Lots of fiddle tunes I play are very square, 8 measures of A 8  measure of B. So it was really weird to write/play music that was based upon these film clips. Certain parts I even had to add an extra beat in to make it match up with the scene change. It also taught me a lot about process. If you spend an evening writing a song based upon a series of video clips, make sure you are done editing so you don't have to go back and do it all over again. 🙂

The filming and editing as well. I am guessing that you used an aquarium for the fish but how did you get the line and lure going through the water and such?

Good guess, but not quite right. What I did was submerge a gopro in the water on a cinderblock. And then we just fished over it for an hour or so, which gave us enough footage for the whole film. 🙂

Very nice.  A really professional film musically, videographically and thematically.

Wow, that was great. I guess you picked the right spot to submerge your go-pro.
