Stargate Atlantis

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.

MV - Movie Star Trek - First Contact

First Love Borg

After seeing the guest list for the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas this summer, this fan music video popped into my head.

This song is from Robert Picardo’s Extreme Bob CD, and all of the video footage is from the Star Trek movie First Contact, even though Alice Kreig also appeared as the Borg Queen in a few episodes of Star Trek Voyager.

I’ve also made a fan music video to another Robert Picardo recording – Woolsey of La Mancha.

Guess what I got in the mail today?

I bought Robert Picardo’s two CDs when I saw him at the Creation Vancouver SG-1/ SGA convention and both surprised and pleased to hear “Man of la Mancha” on the Extreme Bob CD (listed as Opera2). That has been one of my favorite musicals since seeing it featured in a Quantum Leap ep.

Woolsey does come into his own in SGA season 5, and I love how they gave him such fine moments in the ep “Inquisition”. It seemed like the perfect pairing to me.

Rush Away – Take 1

You Can't Look Away
You Can’t Look Away

Dr. Rush has turned out to be my favorite character on Stargate Universe. He’s not the brilliant somewhat socially awkward scientist you usually see on TV.

Rush is a brilliant scientist who can manipulate social situations to his own end, and his own end seems to be extremely self-serving … so far.

I’m thinking I may re-cut this music video again using footage from later in the season. Right now, this mv has scenes from Air, Part 1 through Light.

This is the second time I’ve used a song from the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider soundtrack, the first being “Elevation” to the anime FLCL. Both the soundtracks and the song compilations from the Lara Croft movies are good listening.
