StrixSymphony presents you Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter Paul and Mary from 1963 (in HD / 1080p). So simple yet, addictive and catchy, stays in your mind for years and years. It's a tune that no one ever forgets. On it's 49th year (2012) of existence, I have decided to create an orchestral for it.
I wanted to do something different. Infact, every video I upload has its own unique way of being created. Magic of the Wizard's dream was the first video to be created as a visual video for this account ever. Canon in F# was the first song with my new soundboard.
At first, all my songs started off with pictures, one angled videos, then ... 3 angle videos. Now, Puff the magic dragon is the first video of my account to have 4 angles with newer equipment such as a camera, tripod, soundboard and a updated editing program. As they work together, it has created a smoother and a much clearer picture including HD and 1080p! With the help of my friend Holly, both of us have created a video that is just so epic. As of this video, this will be the default quality of all my videos and I will try to add more things as we progress to the future of StrixSymphony.
It was quite a journey starting with creating this video. It started off trying to get the right sound. I remade the mp3 at least 10 times like "Magic of the Wizard's Dream" and eventually I got the sound I wanted. Then in the time I was making the mp3, I got my new camera. I won't mention what model, but a very good DSLR. The aim with song was to create a happy mood in the first and second verse of the song. I did that successfully by using major chords. There were a few 7th chords which I used for 4 bars. But most of them are major chords.
You'll notice when you come to the lyrics "A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys". The song becomes sadder, slower and quieter. This portrays the sadness that I want you guys to feel when Puff loses his best friend. 2 weeks ago (of upload date) I finished the mp3. I never want to go through that process again.
Eventually, I started creating the video with the new camera. It took me so long to upload this video because I was learning how to use my camera. Once I did, I had to wait for a sunny day and the availability of my friend. Holly and I were going to create the video at a location called "La Perouse" But we ended up at Watson's Bay and had a good view of our city. So we shot it there and in the end, it wasn't that bad at all.
You may have noticed I've been re-uploading this video because there have been a few mistakes and out of sync parts. So I'm doing my best to fix them. But now, I'm happy with this one :).
