There is definately not enough high quality and entertaining sailing films available. Just wish you would stop with the trucks already
and get some more of your terriffic sailing films of your circumnavigation posted , I have watched all of your others more than a few times already
My film about big trucks in western canada on you tube gets 50,000 hits a day - netting me about $1 per thousand. I get paid for the 0.5 per cent of viewers who actually click on an advert.
Then sailing in winter
YouTube - www.keepturningleft.co.uk - winter sailing - wonderful
gets 5,000 hits in a year
I know which is the better of the two films - but more people like trucks than like sailing.
So, I either have to find another revenue model to support the sailing films - or I need to spend more time with my lens pointing at trucks
The web gives a real verdict on the demand for diferent types of work.
However, the whole micropayments for specialist films is turning out to be a most enlightening experience.
Any suggestions about widening the appeal of ktl films gratefully received
