How I cut up a band practice livestream into a video song collage

How I took footage from band practice, cut it up for parts, and turned it into a song. I filmed my band Lorenzo's Music working on an idea for a song one night during a two-hour practice session. The key thing about this idea that made it all work is that we had a click track running the entire night.  A click track ran the whole time even when we weren't playing We had headphones placed around the studio and the click track was constantly running whether we were talking or actually playing it was always running.

Paul Leonard Williams: Writer, Detective Stories and Martial Arts - Tom Ray's Art Podcast

In this episode of the podcast, I talk with writer Paul Leonard Williams . Paul has written a series of detective novels based on his central character Gideon Jones. But as we talk I find out that the idea for these stories started in high school but he was talked out of trying to be a writer by his parents. So for many years he actually went into the field of martial arts before deciding to reconnect with his original passion to be a writer later in life.
