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 - - 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
