Guardians of the Galaxy Cool

Guardians of the Galaxy Cool fan music video


Even with all of the specific things mentioned in the song, the clips from the movie were there to support it, just had to find them. And step away from the computer every now and then to think about which images would best support the portrayal of each character.

Love, love, love this movie. 🙂


SONG> – I’m the One That’s Cool (feat. Felicia Day)

The Heartlines of D.I. Jack Robinson

miss fisher murder mysteries florence and the machine fan music video

cannot be returned

My TV Sherpa friends got me hooked on Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries>> and I knew I had to do a fan music video to it. Watched some of them on YouTube and found one to Florence & The Machine’s “Heartlines”. Loved the song and wanted to use it to tell Jack’s POV.

Each mv has its own challenges, from limited footage in only a single movie (like The Avengers) to 5 years worth of a television series (like Stargate Atlantis). It’s also fun to make the main character of your mv not be the main character of the footage, which leads to many hours combing through every scene, looking for just the right clip to tell the story you want to tell – seriously, this is how this introvert has three days of fun. 😉

In this case, I wanted to tell Jack’s story, from his first meeting with Phyrne, through adventures and growing trust, to heartbreak and renewed friendship and possibilities.

Made For Coulson

phil coulson fan music video

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.”

SONG>: Made For You

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!
