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.
