Would like YOUR opinion on background music for our upcoming "explainer video" entitled "How Can I Do a Bit of Good?"

We hired Chris Rice (the voice of "What is Bitcoin?" and "What is Bitcoin Mining?" to do the voice-over and howitworksmedia.com to do the animation.

Details here:

Thank you for your time and consideration!

We're hoping to "Screen Save the World" :-)

Sincerely,

David V Duccini
Executive Director

FYI there is an audio watermark "premium beats dot com" that will be removed from the final version once we choose.

This song.

Remember Aaron Swartz, a 26 year old computer scientist who died defending the free flow of information.

I took a look at your videos. The music you have now is good, but here are a few of my suggestions that I think might work better:

1. Realest N*gga by Biggie, 50 cent, and Eminem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZJ4nOZ21UI

2. Centipede by Knife Party http://youtu.be/GKzsktuqwyU?t=37s

3. The Game Of Thrones theme song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cfRjmZX7_U

4. The Hey Arnold theme song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUsnJ9jlwns

5. The Godfather Theme song (and have the speaker use an Italian-American accent) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWqKPWO5T4o

6. Anything by DMX

Those were pretty much the worst songs I could think of for this purpose lol but in all seriousness, I think the music you have right now works great. I like the 2nd one slightly better I think but either would work well.

Yeah this seems to be the sentiment based on feedback on Reddit and on Facebook.

We're trying not to overthink it -- and we don't want "the perfect to get in the way of the pretty good" :-)

Our hope is that if people want to dig in and learn more about crypto that by providing links to the other videos that have Chris Rice narrating will help with continuity.

If our crowdfunding goes well, we are planning on doing more specific versions possibly one for each of the 12 generally recognized charitable giving categories.  So we would do a version just on Animal Welfare or on Community and Society as in "How Can I Do a Bit of Good for ...."

Thank you for taking time to review it!  We really appreciate it!
