I haven’t received the certificate yet, but I have it on very good authority that “Canadian McKay, Please” won at the Creation Stargate convention recently held in Chicago (click for downloadable versions of the mv, links to the artists’ websites, and lyrics). That makes me very happy, because Creation has just changed their fan music video rules so that you must pick up your winning certificate at the convention or forfeit it. Which means I’ll be entering a lot fewer of their contests since I only attend 1-2 of their cons a year. Bummer, but a fun run while it lasted.
I’ve included the winning Rodney McKay video here for your enjoyment, eh.
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.
