Well, it's been a dream I've had for about 2 years and here it is! Please read the following and remember this is a grass roots idea of mine and I'd like to keep it that way. This is a place to encourage each other and to further our craft in an environment that supports relevant feedback by people that share a common enthusiasm and/or are in the field professionally. Enjoy! Please tell everyone you know about this if you think they'd like to use it!
WHAT PercTV IS:
-PercTV is a place where people can post videos of themselves performing and get feedback from anyone across the country, hopefully the world. The site is geared towards everyone.
-PercTV was conceived out of a need I saw that was not being met on the internet - a place where people could post videos of themselves playing percussion and then get comments back by people that share the same passion, not just anyone that happens to see the video and decides to post something.
-PercTV is a place where people should feel comfortable about posting their videos, knowing they'll be seen by people of similar drive and that all the feedback they receive will be provided to better themselves technically and musically, regardless of what member is posting. -PercTV is something I'm very excited about! I have a passion to make our craft better and this is a small thing I can do to help this come to fruition. I mean this sincerely so please know that how I've set this up is with my best intentions and the simplest way I could, taking into account many issues. If you have realistic suggestions on the site/design please send them to me via the Contact portion of my site - I'd love to hear them.
What PercTV ISN'T:
-PercTV was not conceived with the notion of making money. I put this up here for everyone to use and I want to keep it free. With that intent comes a LOT of limitations. That's ok. Know that it's obvious that this could be done differently, but all of those options involve a financial investment which is not why I did this - it is what it is and let's use it to the best of our capabilities! I actually had to invest in the better version of Tal.ki forums in order to make this happen, but I am HAPPY to do so.
-PercTV is not a place where people should feel uncomfortable about posting, so know all of the comments will be constructive, regardless of the member making them. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ PercTV PROCESS - upload your videos to Youtube and then provide the link in your post. You can use videos you have already uploaded. And if you've never uploaded to Youtube before you CAN select options that will allow only people that know the link to see the video, essentially keeping it from the general Youtube viewing public. Once you provide the link in a post, people can see your video and then make comments. Please post your video under the correct heading, e.g. Mallets, Multi Perc, Drumset, etc. Don't forget you can use videos that already exist. Remember, when you post you have the option of subscribing to it to get e-mail updates when people respond.
***IMPORTANT*** Let's all help each other keep this the way it needs to be - positive and constructive. If for any reason you see someone making comments on someone's topic that uses a negative or degrading demeanor, please let me know ASAP by sending a comment via the comment portion of my site. If the rules are not followed your account will be terminated from PercTV - but let's hope that doesn't happen.
So click below to be taken to the forums and let's start uploading videos and watching!!!!!! __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ PercTV
