Hello, my fellow Creatives,

A sit down with some James Newton Howard gave me the idea to do a soundtrack, and then I grabbed some clips from the folks at Pexels.com and so "Touché" was born. This indeed is my most challenging project and so I hope you are entertained. And as always.... To God goes the glory.

Thank you all for your comment and thoughtful reviews on my past works. It is the fuel that keep my engine running

May you and yours all have peace in your lives and good health to enjoy it. as I remain

Your Friend, CHRIS

Hello, Chris.
I enjoyed this movie and you did a wonderful job with it, according to the theme.
I have to get rid of one small criticism in spite of all this. In the video you can see black stripes from time to time, which should not be there.

Best regards Hartmut

Nice... but Far Eastern music would have been more appropriate...

Hi Chris,
yes, this was definitely a challenge and you met it with flying colors, I enjoyed this exceptionally well.
Soundtracks I love and I was very well entertained
Since I have a slow line, the video stalled a few times, but the music played through and quite honestly, the video wouldn't have needed it for me. The music is much nicer on its own.... Upload the music on its own, I'd love to save it to my hard drive
A great piece of work.
Stay well and give my love to your wife. She allows you to spend so much time on the PC....

my wife also lets me 😁😎

Great Chris, my friend, very nice sports video with great music 👍👌👍 ... Although, with the Far Eastern martial arts, I would have imagined different music ... Nevertheless, I liked it ...
Best regards and stay healthy ❤️ ...

Bravo Chris!! grande musique et vidéo!! En français "être touché" , au delà de son sens physique, veut dire aussi être ému, affecté, sensible. Alors oui, je suis "touché" par ce bel hommage à ces arts de la finesse, de la précision, de la stratégie, comme l'escrime ( c'est le sport de ma fille) ou les échecs, les arts martiaux qui, en Orient, visaient à lier intimement la puissance à la sagesse

Hi Hartmut, Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I cannot see black bars or stripes anywhere in the video. Can anyone else in our community see them. Just asking. but my extensive key framing may be the culprit and your pc may be seeing it differently. I am pleased you enjoyed my efforts, nonetheless.

Your friend, CHRIS

Thank you, Henri. a difficult art to be sure, fencing and swordplay, you have touched upon its purpose, discipline, with precision although it was difficult to find the proper clips to match my music. Maybe your daughter will enjoy this tribute to 'Sharp' objects ;)

Hello Roy,

This is true my friend. But to find the proper video clips was evasive to me and so I went with what I could find.(spent hours) Maybe I should have added a chopstick loop or two to my music to make it more palatable, just kidding ;)

Thank You for your comment, and critique, Be well and at peace,

CHRIS

You also have a Special woman in your life, my regards

Thank you for your thoughtful and kind remarks on "Touche' ", Stoni. Originally as I was working on the track, I labeled it "Let's Score" and as I progressed into the project, I went into the bladed theme. There was not enough material with either that satisfied me completely, but I went with it with what I could find. I thought at first to just go audio, but I thought the track would do well with some visual. Both video and audio were not a match at times, but I just could not resist and maybe I should have gone with the "Experimental" tag.lol. No finer compliment than to ask for the audio track. Thank you so much. I was torn to do a romantic theme but realized it would be off base.  Hope you get all this I hope the glitches on your end did not interfere with my extensive key framing. which took me hours to get right and a shame to miss.

May you and yours be well and happy.

CHRIS
