Empty spaces - McShep


hello everybody,

I just made a new vid and I'm really anxious to what you'll say...:)

It's a vid to a song I recently found by coincidence. I never heard this song before even though I know the band from my youth.
I guess this vid turns out as a real melancholic one...:(

And I hope you'll forgive me but I'm addicted to overlays as you'll see...;)

Ok, here is it:

Title: Empty spaces
Artist: Spandau Ballet
Characters: Sheppard / McKay, McShep, Slash
Spoiler: Minor spoilers for the 3rd season
Size: 16,8 MB
File: .wmv

Hope you like it!

even though you say it's melancholic, i think the vid is kind of sweet - perhaps it's just the right mixture of the melancholic lyrics, not too melancholic music & beautiful clips, but i think it turned out really good!

i'm normally not a fan of many effects, but yours match the music so well, i can't help but like them - also the overlays are very beautiful , my favourite is at 1:18 . 1:27 & then the following black hole (or whatever it is) again edited to match the music - it's one of my favourite parts!

another beautiful moment is at 1:57 ff - totally like how you cut the clips so fast to match the rhythm.

there are also other very beautiful moments (won't write them all down - there are too many :) & also the ending is great - i like that you used the clip from sunday & used in a different context.

but there are also moments that i think didn't turned out too good, but not because of the editing or clip choice - there are some overlays that i think are a bit too much (e.g. at 1:49/50, 2:07 ff, 2:51/52) - in my opinion the clips you used there for a background image have too small details, they make the other clip look strange & break the beautiful flow of the vid...

but as i said - i really love the vid, i will definetly keep it to watch again & again :)

Hi tearful eye,

I'm so glad about your comment, I really can't tell...:)
And you might be totally right that some of the effects are simply too much, but I can't help it... like I said, I'm a little bit obsessed!;)

And I became aware of making a vid to slow tune is much harder than to a faster one.

But nevertheless, thank you so much for your great and detailed feedback!!!

As a friend has said: "McShep is canon " :P

*svala bows before her new vidding God *

Chayiana, I think Im not able to tell you how much I love this video .

Obsessed is good, I like obsessed, and I feel with you :D

you had me already with your fist 20 sec. of this vid. I like all the small details you have picked to point out the song. Like with 0:50-0:51

As for the overlays, the only one that looked a tad off to me was 1:20-1:26 . There you have Atlantis in the center , and John and Rodney also, I would have choosen a clip that has each of them on one side of the picture,maybe , this way you still could have seen all of Atlantis.

But then , I only used overlays twice, in Farscape videos. Im not good with overlays.

0:55- 0: 57 was just perfect , as well as 2:07 -2:13 IMO, just to tell you what I mean.

This is such a wonderful video, you are sooooo good.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I haven `t replied to your vid for the SG-P Awards yet, I watched it, eyes and mouth wide open , whoa.

I knew it was a bad idea to post my vid this early, now I regret I even entered it :P

I think you did an outstanding job with your video

Very nice. I'm not a slash person but what you have here makes even me think there's something there. Nice clip choices. I like how you have the zooms jump to the beats. I like the rest of it too, just that's my favorite part.

Email?


Do you have an email address? I wanted to nominate this vid for the Stargate Fan Awards, but they need an email address for that.

Thanks!
