Here we are, once again, with another video I created for another song by the band, Trinity-X, a band I was in back in the early 90's.

When making all three of the videos I've made so far, the live footage of the band that I've had to work with are from only two shows. Both are from 1993 and are from clubs that were around at the time in Kansas City: The Shadow and The Backstage.

I don't know if they are still around, but they were two places I remember enjoying.

The live footage, however, was shot on an old video camera. Well, it was new at the time. But, both were on video tape.

Derek, the bass player/singer/song writer, had converted both of those shows to digital and has them up now at the YouTube channel he has set up for his indie label: Atomic Zombie Records.

I've had to take screen recordings of various moments in both of those videos using my phone. They don't look great. So, rather then worrying about how they look, I leaned into that and added more "degradation" such as television static and what not.

I think the effect turned out well in all three videos.

The thing is, however, I'm running out of live stuff to show. Each one of those live performances are a little under an hour long, but really, they are mostly just a static shot from a camera on a tripod, there just isn't really a lot to work with.

That means that when I sit down next week to start putting together the video for the last song on the Bootleg Starter Kit, Flatline, I'm going to have to challenge myself even further.

I'm rather looking forward to it.

If you like the song, you can download it, and the entire Bootleg Starter Kit, for free at:
