* Let me tell you a story. I was at my editing bay one afternoon, three years ago, when I decided to create a Pink Floyd video performing one of my favorite songs, “Time”. I wanted to bring together, even if by “video magic”, the original members of my favorite band, so I downloaded videos of a performance by David Gilmour in Poland, another one by Roger Waters in Mexico and a third one, from “Pulse” (for images of Nick Mason). In a few hours the video was ready.
It was just a tribute to Pink Floyd and an editing exercise.
I uploaded it to YouTube, and explained in the DESCRIPTION that this was just a editing exercise. It was August 2017.
So, three years later, the video has over 23 million views, something I could never have expected. For some reason, thousands of people were touched by the video in some way. But I was surprised by the amount of offensive comments I got; it was as if I had committed a “crime”, as if my aim, from the beginning, was to deceive viewers. Even if I made it clear that the video was put together from different concerts, many viewers were offended. BUT there were also hundreds of positive comments, and millions of views. People who were touched by the music.
And a lot of people who really believed that the video showed a “reunion” between Waters, Gilmour, Mason and Wright, even though it is obvious that they are at different concerts.
Thank you so much to all of you who, like me, love Pink Floyd’s music. This video took on a life of its own and I am always surprised by the amount of views and the reactions (positive and negative) that it entices.
