The Next Doctor Who’s Sarajevo Christmas

The Next Doctor Who's Sarajevo Christmas

I actually completed this fan music video in December 2009. I showed it to some friends, then kinda forgot about getting it online.

Until now.

Spoiler warning at the beginning as you might not want to be watching this if you haven’t see “The Next Doctor”. It was one of the Christmas specials during David Tennant’s reign as the 10th Doctor Who.

This instrumental piece has been one of my favorite Christmas songs since I first heard it. The end of the mv was the scene that first matched up in my head between the footage and the music, and the rest fell into place pretty easily after that.

SONG> – Christmas/ Sarajevo 12/24
PERFORMED BY> Trans-Siberian Orchestra
FOOTAGE> The Next Doctor
DATE – December, 2011

Mal’s Life

Mal's life

My Life

I have so many Abney Park music video ideas it’s a little insane.

This is not the fan music video that I’m doing in response to the votes I asked for a couple of months ago.

It is the fan music video I made for a contest at the Creation Firefly/Buffy/Dollhouse convention in LA.

I usually password-protect my mvs if they are up for a contest, but the convention isn’t until November, and all of you should know that Abney Park has a new album coming out on October 15th. Which means I’ll likely be adding to the list of Abney Park mvs that will show up on this site eventually.

This fan music video is dedicated to Captian Robert of Abney Park – thanks for the music that makes me feel on top of the world. 🙂

SONG> – My Life

Canadian McKay, Please

Canadian, Please

Canadian, Please

A Canadian Browncoat friend of mine sent me a link to gunnarolla’s “Canadian, Please” song last year. This month I finally got around to making this Stargate Atlantis fan music video for it. It’s a submission to the Creation Stargate convention> in Chicago, so this post will remain password-protected until the end of August.

Featuring David Hewlett as Rodney McKay, there’s actually a bit of footage from every instance of Stargate, from the movie, to SG-1, lots of SGA, and a shot of Destiny from Stargate Universe.

While only 2:30 long, it took me the longest amount of time I’ve ever spent editing due to the huge volume of footage I had to choose from. Since the song was so short, every shot had to be “perfect” – which meant I edited some places several times before being happy with it. And a lot of these Stargate Atlantis episode I’d hadn’t seen since I first watched them several years ago, so I would stop editing and just end up watching. Not a great hardship, really, just time-consuming. 🙂

Special thanks to macgyvergal> for her vast knowledge of the Stargate franchise, without whom, I may not have met the contest deadline.

Award: Creation’s Stargate Chicago convention in August 2010.

SONG – Canadian, Please
PERFORMED BY> Julia Bentley & Andrew Gunadie

Lean on Burn Notice

Lean On Me

Parker Havens has an audition video on MySpace for GLEE. After I heard him sing, I wanted to make this Burn Notice fan music video.

Thanks to an email from Parker’s mother, author Candace Havens>, I found out about his video audition in the MySpace GLEE competition> that runs through April 26th.

I went. I listened. I voted. Then I asked Candy if she thought Parker would mind if used his piece in a fan music video. He generously said yes, and this Burn Notice music video is the result.

I haven’t cut a video to just vocals before, so this was a bit of a challenge. There were lots of great Michael & Fiona moments to choose from, but I have to say I like the way the Fiona & Sam scenes cut together. I’ve switched point of view (POV) based on lyrics before, but never so often as in this music video.

If you like music, please go vote for Parker’s MySpace GLEE audition video>! You have to be logged into your MySpace account to vote – then just click this link>, scroll down past the intro movie to see Parker’s entry, and click on the “give a gold star” graphic under his videos.

SONG – Lean on Me
PERFORMED BY> Parker Havens
TV SHOW> Burn Notice
