Item from BBC UK web site. (Don't know for how long this link will be valid.)

In the context of this thread, a video well worth watching.

Reasons:
Powerful without the overbearing audio compression, (Loudness Wars: Loudness war - Wikipedia ).
Repetitive so can be low level and ignored so as to make the visuals more important.
Subtle breaks.
Minor key for sadness effect.
Dear Wise,

I'm going to use the track you suggested above in my new video (coming soon), "Roadblocks to a Secure Cyberspace in 2019"..... which I am rendering now (stage one, simple special effects).

This is very aggressive. For a more serious controversial video.
Bog standard heavy metal chordwork but immensely powerful nevertheless.

(Not bad guitar harmonies 1970's style in part to break up the aggression too.)

Thanks Again!

That's a great track for a video. Will definitely use "Extreme Metal" for a project sooner than later!

I'm such a noob at this... LOL

Quite often, I listen to a lot of tracks, watch a lot of video clips, and review a lot of specific effects templates without a specific project in mind, then it just all comes together when I decide do create the new project. Sometimes I pick the sound track first, sometimes I write the script first, sometimes I pick the video effects first, since I'm just a novice at this with no specific discipline at all.

Lately, as I get more experienced, I write the script first (the message), then I search for an over all effect (theme, like glitch, or corporate, or grunge, or metal) I like which is normally based on an After Effects or Premier Pro template in my collection or from Motion Array or StoryBlocks which I modify, then I modify Adobe Ae or Pr file(s) to adjust the timing to match the message and desired length, then I add the sound track and adjust the timing of the message and chip to blend in with the sound, then go for videos and images.

While all this is rendering, add the intro and outros to frame the message / theme either in Premier Pro or Camtasia.

I'm new at this, but it's really interesting to do. Motion Array pushes their new content out to YT daily, so I can lounge on the couch with my morning coffee and review all their new stuff on the big screen which looks interesting, and that all is filed away in the back of my mind for future projects.

Maybe you can create some guitar sound tracks for future videos? Smilie As long as they are royalty free, I'm good Smilie

Per that report:

Quote:
The spike is likely to be driven in part by the introduction of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which introduced an obligation on all organisations to report certain types of security breaches.

These two videos I made back in 2019 are starting to get attention:

Version 1: YouTube V1: Top Cybersecurity Threats 2019
Version 2: YouTube V2: Top Cybersecurity Threats 2019

I just had a cybersecurity researcher in Malaysia contact me to tell me:

Yes, that is the #1 issue, people are too dependent on tech and this dependance is easily exploited; as we see in all modern societies now.
I think most people do not understand this (yet). Dependance on tech is easily exploited for commercial, political, ideological and even overtly criminal purposes.
