Castle Vid: The Many Faces of Richard Castle

Song: Blue Suede Shoes
Artist: Elvis Presley
Download and stream here.
 

“The Many Faces of Richard Castle.”

Okay, I call this my Nathan Fillion geek fest. Seriously, can that man be anymore awesome? *thud*

I made this video for tearful_eye   who won me at some charity auction way back. Her first request was for a different fandom but I kinda never got around to rewatch the source, so she asked me if I could make her a Castle vid instead... yeah, I guess it turned out to be more of a Nathan Fillion appreciation kinda vid but hey, that man is awesome! ;) tearful_eye   was gratious enough to let me sit on it for a while so it could premiere at vidukon   in April this year.

Fringe Vid: The Story of Olivia and Peter

Song: Mr. Gaunt PT 1000
Artist: Soap and Skin
Spoilers: Up to episode 3x16, Os.

“My name is Peter.” – “Mine’s Olivia.”

While this vid is heavily based on episode 3×15, Subject 13, I’d more say it is about the actual relationship of Peter and Olivia, both back then and now. The show managed to give their relationship such a depth, it totally blew me away. Two kids who saved each other 1985 grow up not knowing what happened to them and still, 25 years later, they find their way to each other because they both are in need of saving once again. Yes, I have hopelessly fallen for this show *sigh*

This vid is for my fellow Fringey raspberry_splat  who gave "OMG!" a whole new meaning for me. Thanks for being my Fringe buddy! Wouldn't know what I'd do Fridays without you!

Fringe Vid: The Darkest Hour

Song: The Beginning is the End is the Beginning
Artist: The Smashing Pumpkins
Download and stream here.
 

It’s Peter’s darkest hour.

This is an episodic vid for episode 3×11, Reciprocity. So if you haven’t seen the ep, don’t watch the vid. It is gonna spoil you. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

The whole thing is based losely on the Watchmen trailer. It was also greatly inspired by rhoboat's Doctor Who vid In Your Darkest Hour.

Aaaaand, I made this for raspberry_splat  because she managed to send me 28 texts while watching the ep that all contained "OMG!" in one way or another XD

Fringe vid: You're The End Of Me

Song: End Of Me
Artist: Apocalyptica ft. Gavin Rossdale


“He was a traitor. And whatever was between us was a lie, so that he could gain my trust, so that I didn’t see him for what he was.”

I never really understood what Olivia saw in John Scott, however, I found their – still unresolved – storyline rather interesting. When I heard that song from the new Apocalyptica album, it just screamed Olivia to me, and how John’s betrayal and her search for the truth almost ruined her.

This was made for a video challenge over at scifiverse. Many thanks to theanonsisters  for the beta on this one!

Fringe vid: Stolen Lives

Song: You’re Going Down
Artist: Sick Puppies
Download and stream on my website here

“They’re trying to convince me I am someone that I’m not.”


This is a mock-up trailer for a new show called “Stolen Lives”. I based the idea for it on what’s happening to Olivia in season 3 of Fringe. If you haven’t seen that season yet, I suggest you stay away from this vid (Spoiler alert for up to episode 3×04 of Fringe!!!)

Vid: The Story of Bonnie and Clyde

Song:
Bonnie & Clyde
Artist:
Belinda Carlisle

Download and stream here.


Vidder Notes:

This one needs some notes that are a bit longer than usual. The idea for this vid was born while I was rewatching Dark Angel a few weeks back. I thought it would be cool to do a future Alec/Asha vid using footage from Supernatural for Alec and Jericho for Asha. The problem with that was I don’t watch Supernatural and the only person I know who does, doesn’t know Jericho LOL So the idea got pretty much shelved… until I did my very first Jericho vid the other day and while I was clipping, I thought hey, why not do it backwards? Use Jericho as the main focus point for Jake and Emily and go backwards from there. I really had no idea what I wanted to do with that idea, so I just set it aside for a little while.

And then came the lucky YouTube recommendations one day. I was looking for an original music video for a German band and YouTube recommended me this song as a similar song. I listened to it and was inspired from the get go. The song tells the story of the legendary Bonnie and Clyde and I got this crazy idea that I could tell their story using footage of Skeet Ulrich and Ashley Scott. I dug around my DVD shelves to see what sources I had and could use and ended up using footage from 5 different sources for this one: CSI NY, Dark Angel and Jericho and the movies Scream and Walking Tall.

I also did a little background info check on the original Bonnie and Clyde before I actually started vidding. I learned that Bonnie Parker wrote a few poems about the Barrow gang that she would send out to newspapers to tell their story from her point of view. The song I used actually touches very closely on one of the poems she wrote called “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde” which you can read here. Any text you can find in the vid was taken from this poem by Bonnie Parker.

“The story of Bonnie and Clyde” is a tribute to the real Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the infamous bank robbers from the 1930s.

Jericho Vid: Walk Away

Song: Walk Away
Artist: Aloha From Hell
HQ mp4 file, LQ wmv file and stream available (I suggest you get the HQ though ;)) here.
 

“Why did you come back, Jake? Why couldn’t you just stay away?”


I confess, I am a shipper by heart. I am a hopeless shipper of those that can’t be. I call them my misery couples. It’s not like I go out and look for them. It's more like they always seem to find me. Once in a while I hear a song on the radio and that stupid little vidding bug crawls out of hiding and asks me to make a vid for one of my misery couples. This time, it was Jake and Emily from Jericho.

Multi-Fandom Vid: Candymen 2.0

Song: Candyman
Artist: Christina Aguilera
Download and stream info here.
 
Candymen 1.0 was made for Club Vivid @ Vividcon 2008. Candymen 2.0 was made for Escapade 2010 just because I thought the vid needed a reboot to celebrate some of the new hot faces on TV.

Thanks a bunch to humansrsuperior , ltgarrix , raspberry_splat , rhoboat  and thedothatgirl  for providing me with extra clips. I really appreaciated it!
