Creating Animated gifs into a music video for my band Lorenzo's Music song "With you" using FlipaClip

Lorenzo's Music - Creating Animated gifs into a music video "With you" using FlipaClip

I recently did an animated video for my band Lorenzo's Music that was made entirely out of gifs and it was for a song that's called "With you".

One of the things I did when I was making the song itself was just kind of drawing some stuff. I had this character that I did once when I was just trying to do some animation in a program called Blender while we were making our Spaghetti Mid-Western EP

I was just trying to do this animation idea and I thought I might want to do a video for it and then the ep went on and I was still learning how to do Blender and it got kind of backed up so I never did.

I had been reading some old 1950s four-color mystery/ghost comics and I watch a lot of old monster movies and things like that. I wanted to do something in that realm.

While we were recording the song or while we were mixing it during that time I was using a program on my tablet called FlipaClip which lets you make gif animations. So what I had done is I drew these pictures and I decided to bring them into FlipaClip and make these gif animations.

These are different scenes from it and all these are pretty much between two and three seconds.

All these different things are just gifs that I created using FlipaClip.

The drive there is on a bunch of country backroads too. I always enjoy that.

I was wondering why he kept looking at me strangely.

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca
