Made For Coulson

It’s a beautiful place

I’ve loved Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from the first ep. Such a joy to see the characters grow, the secrets get secretier, and how everyone is dealing with the consequences of Captain America: Winter Soldier.

I have two other songs in mind for AoS: one short and fun, the other with more depth than the song usually implies, but I want to wait until all the eps of season one are available.

Until then, I give you my entry for the 2014 Phoenix Comic Con Music Video Contest, “Made For Coulson.”

Vincent and The Doctor in a Different World

Vincent and the Doctor in a Different World fan music video

The finest painter of them all

I’ve wanted to do a fan music video to a song from the Kari gurashi ( Songbook from The Secret World Of Arrietty ) for a while and one day I realized it would work to a single episode of Doctor Who.

The great thing about only using one ep is there is a finite amount of footage. Bad thing about only using one ep – there is a finite amount of footage, and even less footage than the whole ep when I decide I don’t want to use any video that features exclusively the Doctor or the giant alien space chicken.

SONG>: A Different World – NOTE: the “Kari gurashi” CD is different from the Arrietty “soundtrack”

ARTIST>: Cecile Corbel

FOOTAGE>: Doctor Who Season 5, Episode #10 – “Vincent and The Doctor”

Reese in Darkness

person of interest reese fan music video

In the end, we’re all alone.

Editing to a purely instrumental piece is always more of a challenge than to a song with lyrics. With a short instrumental piece the challenge factor triples because the visuals have to be very focused upon a single theme as there is no room for more. Even though it’s a quarter as long as some of my other fan music videos, it took me as long to edit this one because I started and threw away three other versions before the final one you see here. It’s more of an interest piece or trailer, but if it gets one person to go check out Person of Interest, then it’s purpose has been fulfilled.

This is the Reese fan music video. The Finch fan music video is coming in a few weeks. Also looking for a song that would work for both of them, so if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment or use the Contact page – thanks!

Twisted & Broken Edward

Left behind.

I’ve had this fan music video idea in my head for a few years now, really a few days after I first heard Abney Park’s “Twisted & Broken” on their “From Dream Or Angels” CD.

Editing from movie source is always faster than series source since there is much less footage to review. That fact also brings its own challenges because there is much less footage available to use.

Love and Loss and Oswin

Doctor Who Oswin Love Loss

This is me.

A spoiler-free fan music video using the Doctor Who 2012 Christmas Special because I loved The Snowmen so much I made this fan music video within 10 hours of watching the show.

Amy and Rory are a difficult act to follow, but I trust The Moffat and from the two peeks he’s given us of Clara Oswin Oswald, she is going to be an awesome addition to the legend of Doctor Who.

SONG>: Love and Loss
