    Yes!!! Let's do this! I am trying to upload with a different laptop that has a good old LAN cable and see if it's more stable for 3speak!

    Finally, I am doing it!

    It's been a week since I have been trying to have a good version of this woman's work, a song by Kate Bush and covered by Maxwell that is surpisingly difficult for a dude, it's always been a challenge of mine, and I've spent the whole week refusing drinks left and right, just to keep the voice pristine, I even avoided my sick children dodging a massive bullet haha, and went on a location scouting 2 days ago, where I bumped into gigantic sentient tree beings, and got rained on (what?).

    I was set on my filming location, when this morning I woke up at 6am, and after drinking another ginger and lemon concoction, I opened the door, loaded the equipment in the car at 730 on the dot, and 5 minutes later, I realize that there is something incredible going on in my yard.

    Crazy fog making everything look completely different! I should already be gone, driving to the location I picked, but for some reason, without even thinking, I unload everything and set it up right here, where I normally do my videos.

    I am still out of breath when I started recording the take haha, you can hear it in the silences.

    It's alright, I will have plenty of other opportunities to shoot in the forest, this was worth it! Up until now, I never really managed to time the sunrise perfectly in my other videos, but this time around, it turned out so nice!

    That's why I am so happy that it's posted on 3speak (finger crossed, I had to restart the upload 3 times, I am just going to leave it all night and hope for the best)!

    I will add a YT link if you want to watch it in 4k :)

    I really enjoy so much seeing the fog moving like this, it feels like I am in the cloud, it reminds me of @yidneth music video she did at the top of the mountain!

    It's always a challenge to film with limited light, but the colors are really popping out, I am happy it happened for this song in particular. There is some post prod work of course, increased saturation, sharpness, contrast, broghtness etc... The usual haha...

    I only recorded one version this time around, just because the sun would look completely different 5 minutes later, in some way it's just a snapshot of the moment.

    At first, I added a reverb on the audio track, but after a long discussion with my dear wife, we both decided that it was working better without the reverb, though the original has a reverb on the voice.

    I am supposed to think of the next song on Monday, but I just want to appreciate this one a little bit longer, the song is really a beautifully crafted song, not mine of course haha, I can't believe Kate Bush wrote it when she was 16 years old.

    After 13 years of trying, I am finally posting this one hahaha.

    Of course, it isn't perfect at all, and right after finishing editing I was already pointing out what wasn't working, but this time, I am going to let it go, it's done. I can't even listen to it anymore, that's weird right?

    Ok it seems to still be uploading, note to oneself, always save what you wrote on a notepad.

    I've listened to it again it's terrible...I am going to delete it...

    I changed my mind again I am closing my eyes and pressing publish!

    This Woman's Work
    Maxwell
    Pray God you can cope
    I'll stand outside
    This woman's worth
    This woman's world
    Oh it's hard on a man
    Now his part is over
    Now starts the craft of the father
    I know you've got a little life in you left
    I know you've got a lotta strength left
    I know you've got a little life in you left
    I know you've got a lotta strength left
    I should be cryin' but I just can't let it show
    I should be hopin' but I can't stop thinkin'
    All the things we should've said that are never said
    All the things we should've done that we never did
    All the things we should've given, but I didn't
    Oh darlin', make it go
    Make it go away
    Give me these moments
    Give them back to me
    Give me your little kiss
    Give me your...
    Give me your hand baby
    (I know you've got a lotta strength)
    Give me your pretty hand
    (I know you've got a little life in you left)
    Ooo show me you understand
    (I know you've got a lotta strength left)
    Your lovechild
    (I know you've got a little life in you left)
    Whatever you need baby
    (I know you've got a lotta strength left)
    Give me your hand
    (I know you've got a little life in you left)
    Give me your love
    (I know you've got a lotta strength left)
    I should be cryin' but I just can't let it show baby
    I should be hopin' but I can't stop thinkin
    All the things we should've said that we never said
    All the things we should've done that we never did
    All the things that you wanted from me
    All the things that you needed from me
    All the things we should've given, but I didn't
    Oh darlin', make it go away now,
    Just make it go away.
