TV Theme Challenge - Atlantis Calling


Hi,

hmm ... this is actually the first time I am posting a thread (new in here), getting a vid done and ready to show (I've done many but finished none!). It is also the first time that I am hosting something on a first-and-freshly-created website and that I participate to a challenge like this one! (Lots of first times tonight!)

So... I am kind of a little nervous because I don't know if I am doing the right thing and I seriously hope that it is working ...

Now here it is:

Title: Atlantis Calling
TV show: Tru Calling
Song: Somebody Help Me
Artist: Full Blown Rose
Characters: Teyla, Weir and Beckett (mostly)
Duration: 00:38 min
Size: 2,40 Mb
Format: wmv
Download Page: my page

I use the season 3 episode Echoes of Stargate Atlantis, so it contains some spoilers.

Ohh... and the video is zipped!

Please tell me if there is anything wrong with it...

EDIT: zipped no more, and also hosted on filefront.

Welcome to the forum!

I like this video. Especially :14, and :23-24 seconds. Perfect selection there. Great episode choice for this theme as well. :)

Sorry, ElizabethSH...
I keep getting an eror404 html doc?
So for me the dl is not working?
I have no suggestions, but maybe someone else here could help!
I mean if Rae did get it, then it must be available to some, right?
lol....
I'll check back...

Ohhh ... :( sorry to hear that.

In fact when I tried it myself it kept saying that too but I've realize that when I was clicking directly on the link (not "save as..." but directly with the left button of the mouse) I could access it and because it is a zipped file it was asking me if I wanted to save it or just open it. So maybe that's what Rae did to see it! Anyway, if you haven't tried it like that, try and let me know what happens!

Just out of a simple curiosity, is presenting my vid here is all I have to do to participate to the challenge, or is there something more I should do?... just to be sure.

I still can't seem to get the vid...
I tried both left and right clicking, and I also opened up a different server and went through it in case MSN was having some issue..
It continues to want to give me a error404html doc at 2 kb not 2Mb????
Sorry but I don't know what else to do...
As for your entry process, you have done everything right and you seem to be all set.
I do hope that others are able to dl your vid.
Take Care- Spacecadet

Hi ElizabethSH! :) Welcome to the forums.

I really enjoyed your vid. I think you chose the perfect episode to use for it.

I especially liked your clip selection for the head shots set to the heart beats in the very beginning, Elizabeth at 0:07, Teyla at 0:11, ohhh and awesome clip and timing for the "help me" at 0:14, I also very much liked the shots of the bodies fading while walking through people at 0:24. :)

My only tiny nitpick would be the clip of the ship exiting the water. It seemed a bit out of place the rest of the vid's story is focused on the visions and the effects of the visions.

I also liked the tweaking you did at the very end with the girl walking. It went nicely with the edgy vibe of the video and the music.

I think you did a very nice job with your vid. I hope you finish up those works in progress you have so we can see more of your work. :D

My god thank you so much ... :$ You don't know how much happy I am by reading your comments.

And now that you are telling me, I haven't realize that the ship-exiting-water part was 'out of place' as you said! I guess that because it was kind of fitting the song at that moment it didn't bugged enough to realize it as you did.

I am also glad that you liked the endding because my sister didn't like the effect, and I did. So the question was whether it was good or not. But for now ... it is two against one! Anyone else would like to comment?

Anyway, I feel so happy when you people comments ... I think it a good thing to have a 'third' opinion (my sister being the second one) and a great opportunity to learn from our mistakes ... I should've done this before ... really it is just great! ;)

omgosh! Dude! I've only seen one episode of Tru Calling, and I loved it, but when I started watching your vid, I totally forgot about the whispered "Help me" in the song, and when the Ancienty-chick said it(fantabulous job, by the way. I swear it looked like her lips were saying "help me"), it scared the crap out of me! :D The whole vid gave me chills, which is good. ^_^ And, yeah, the ending bit with the chick walking was great. I also liked where the way you cut from person to person with the sound of the heartbeat. ^_^ Nice job.

Hey! Thank you so much :D

And you don't know how much time it took me to spot a part that kind of look like "help me" on her lips. She kind of always kept her mouth open to say her absolutely ununderstandable words!

In the song the "help me" whisper is only heard in the opening title of the second season!

...Now we are three against one! :D

Hey
For those who couldn't see it like spacecadet, I put it in on youtube (link available on my website). So now, you can see it AND download it. There is no reason you cannot see it! Enjoy!

Again, if there is something wrong tell me about it! I'll try to fix it!

Not familiar with Tru Calling, but thought you did a great job on this. You're off to an excellent start.

Welcome!

I never knew that song was the theme to anything! Good job though, I like the choice of using 'Echoes'. Good luck!
