I've only made one video so far - a longform video to go with a piece called Forward, released on Aural Films a couple of months ago. It chronicles the journey of Roald Amundsen and his team in their historic expedition to the geographic South Pole, using images that slowly fade into eachother (a la Eno's Thursday Afternoon). With old-timey dust and grain, of course

When I created this feature-length soundscape video, it was in a vague attempt to compete with all of the current crop of YouTubers who try to outdo each other on runtime in sound based videos. My problem is that I make true videos, and most of the people I am competing with in this genre are simply pasting a static image into their video editor and stretching the viewing time of that image to match the runtime of the sound.
Which method do you prefer? Any responses welcome!

So I did not know there to start this, so it will go here... lets all share some tips & tricks
When doing sound-design, I seem to be getting the “best” or most interesting results by simply recording all my work on say a synth patch.. when the patch is done, I have, besides a potentially useful synth-patch. a recording of the entire process.. this is where I find approximately 80% of my sound-design. I have a folder in my sample-library entitled “Sampling Archive” containing countless hours of recordings, many of them “useless” until one starts to think of them as the stone inside which, small nuggets of gem may be hiding. From time to time, I pull out a recording, fairly random, and start my explorations.
This is a very good way of working for me because it takes away pressure from the actual sound-design, because even if the patch/sound turn out to be uninspiring in the end, I have lets say, 40 minutes of recording that may be very diverse, and often times I find sonic treasures in places I had no idea where absolutely lovely when I made it, because I was so focused on other things (technical aspects, anticipations, taste, intention).
This is a way of introducing some “controlled chaos” into the process, and I do admit that I am a far better sound-designer by chance, then I could ever be when I let my intellect control the process.

Come one, come all and share those videos. I want to include more of YOUR videos in the Sound Arts Channel YouTube feed that shows on the front page.
Please, DO NOT reply here with your video. Please make NEW posts in this section about your YouTube video(s) so others can comment on it directly. Thanks!
