Video of Unsung Muses at Farfield Mill

This is a video of Unsung Muses at Farfield Mill.  [Please note it will not work on Apple products.  Trying to sort out this new technical difficulty]

As I said in my earlier post, I stupidly shot it vertically rather than horizontally as I was shooting it on my phone and the figures are vertical, so it seemed the best way to do it.  Luckily, thanks to a simple google search (“how do I rotate a video”), I found a way to turn it round.   
There is no sound beyond my gentle/spooky footsteps – I didn’t want to add a commentary and my next task is to find a website that has the right type of music to play in the background.  I have a strong sense of what that soundscape should be, but being one degree off tone-deaf, I can’t communicate it to anyone.  It is one of my ambitions though to work with a musician to create an overall exhibition experience, assaulting both sight and sound.  Anyone know of someone daft enough to want to work with me?

This is only my second attempt at video, we rarely even video the kids, preferring to photograph, but it is the best way to document an exhibition like this.  So my goal for my next one I suppose is to add some commentary – do you feel it needs it?

Oops. Solve one technical problem and then discover another. Sue Hotchkis has just told me the video doesn't work on iPads. She's right as I've just checked. It was fine on my laptop... I'll see if I can sort it. Any ideas?

It just takes me to the Unsung Muses page, no video. I'm on an iMac.

Just heard it playing as I posted my last comment. However. it's doing some very odd things and if I try to do full screen it freezes and then takes me to another page. No idea how you are supposed to post videos I'm afraid.

Yep, sorry Maggi. I think what has happened is that although I shot it on an iPhone, I rotated it via windows and now it has flash on it which apple products don't like. Need to work out what to do. Arrgh!
