Hello👋 

So are you making progress on the project?

Is it okay if I post my video here to get your opinion? @fiddlerman ? 

This is my 1st recording of the violin 1...
Is it good for the rhythm? I have doubts...
 but if it's correct I'll send my video 🤞😛

  

...perfect.... :-)

Mine's uploading right now.  74% so far!

I usually do as many parts as I can, but this year it's just Vn1 for various reasons that I won't bore you with!

@Fiddlerman Two questions:

1) With multiple parts submissions, how are you wanting us to designate the one we want in the video (vs audio only)? 

2) From your instructions, 

Record yourself playing one to two parts found below.

So, you do not want more than 2 parts from any one individual? 

Just looking for some clarifications. smile

Great question.

I would take multiple audio but will only use one video. In other words, I don't want the same person shown in the mix twice. As per the audio, I'm happy to include more. Since I never know how many submissions I will get, I write maximum two to protect myself from overworking my computer. lol

Usually I use all the parts submitted to me. I personally always record all the parts of myself playing as well. More audio tracks makes the group sound larger, fuller, and more impressive. I'm just simplifying my job a bit.

  

@Fiddlerman  Thanks--but you didn't answer my 1st question.  If a person submits multiple videos, how do you want him/her to label the one video they want used as their video in the final project (where the other videos that person submits will be used by you as audio only). 

What I've done in the past is take the video that I like the most. Most smiles, best angle, most usable for me. Sometimes I have too many 1st parts so I use the 2nd part. HOWEVER, I prefer that you guys pick he video you want me to use.
YES, write it in the title.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask, and thank you!!!

example:
SharonC_Vln1_USE_THIS_ONE_FOR_THE_VIDEO.mp4

SharonC_Viola3.mp4

Don't think it needs to be that elaborate (or long). 

Because folks have already submitted, some with multiple parts, this means you're going back to ask them and/or they're messaging you to say "Oh, I want this one used...."

And then they are wondering if you got the message.

And then you're looking for the emails/messages.

Then they're sending more messages. . .

Please tell us now what you want for multiple submissions.

Extra communication needed = more work for you.

Just saying. . .

@Fiddlerman ,

Please be aware of a Dropbox file naming quirk.

I named and uploaded my video using my first name and last initial as my desired display name for the Christmas project.  Dropbox, however, appended my full first name and full last name to my file name!

It came out like this: Vln1_Myfirstname_L_Myfirstname_Mylastname.mp4 !!

I want to be credited as (where L equals my last initial)  Myfirstname L.

I now recall that Dropbox did this last year as well.  I’m sure some others might also experience this.

Thank you.

Unfretted

Edit: P.S.  I think this happens primarily to folks who have a Dropbox account, are logged in to Dropbox, and upload the project video from the personal Dropbox account to the Fiddlerman project Dropbox.

Hats off to everyone who has been able to complete this project.

Am I the only one having trouble with this? 😳😰

I'm sorry, you lost me. You can send me a PM and let me know exactly how you want me to label your participation.

@Fiddlerman  I would like mine to be be SharonC

From your list:

SharonC_Vln1 Sharon LC.mp4

I named my file SharonC_Vln1, per your instructions, but I guess Dropbox attached the "Sharon LC" part because it is the name on my Dropbox account (I uploaded from it).

What do you guys think???

🤣

The traditional extension will probably take place. I like people to think that it's Monday or No-day but, you guys know me. Just don't spread it too much. 😁

Yours was clear to me Sharon. Thanks for double checking.

When I stop accepting submissions I'll post again with all the submissions using the name that I think that everyone wants to use.
