Thanks to svmadelyn, who is more awesome than that one word can fully express, for hosting this vid before it found a permanent home. :)


In other news, I gave blood today, and learned (or was reminded of) three things:

1) Monday at 5ish is The Right Time for this activity, because no one else makes appointments at that time. I didn't have to spend any time at all in those uncomfortable waiting room chairs! Yay!

2) Monday at 5ish is when the screener (person who does the finger-stick iron test) is a cute guy who will flirt and talk about his love for brainless movies. I must. Remember. This. *makes note*

3) When the nurse manages to hit the sweet spot in my vein that bleeds me out in just over four minutes, the site of the needle-stick hurts like a motherfucker afterwards. Ow.

*gleeful* If you need a permanent link, I'd happily host it on my site for you.

I especially loved the ending - it, um. Strangely made me want to dance. And play with matches? But mostly dance. And ENDING IT ON THE BABY. Horrible, horrible. (Yay!)

Oooo. I would not say no to a permanent link, if you're willing. Thank you!

Yay, dancing! I had such...fun? Sure, we'll go with fun...working clips into the oompah/waltz rhythm, so a dancing reaction is very much appreciated. :)

And ENDING IT ON THE BABY. Horrible, horrible. (Yay!)

Well, you know. He's just so *broken*. (Also, having just allowed myself to watch halcyon_shift's vid, I find it amusing that BAG's apparently going to be this fandom's go-to boy for such things. Next season, every episode should end with Derek looking silently devastated!)

Thank you!

Thanks! I think this show needs many vids for me to wallow in. Many, many. ;)

Hi, I was friendsurfing and saw this vid and since I a) discovered my love for vids and b) absolutely adore T:TSCC, I couldn't resist and downloaded it.

It was great! I especially love the ending; that's one of my favourite scene in that show. Derek looks so, broken, and Cameron dancing like that... yes, I do love that ending. And everything that came before :-)

The scene at the end of 'Demon Hand' is just so *wonderfully* expressive; I couldn't resist. *g*

Thank you for watching! I'm glad you liked it.


Thank you!

That was really intense and wonderful - the song worked really well as a contrast to the images.

I'd been wanting to vid SCC since 'Demon Hand', and when I heard this song, it was exactly the style I wanted. Musical style vs content juxtapositions are *fun*. *g*

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it.

That was really nicely edited and I enjoyed it a lot. Great work! The show is great and I hope to get a video done for it as well.

Thank you! Editing with Movie Maker is a bitch and a half; I'm glad you like the final result. :) And I hope you do make a vid--this show needs lots of fannish output. *g*

That was really great! I love the way the song works to show the increasing sense of panic/doom and your clips right along with it.

Thanks for sharing!

When I first heard that song, I fell for the way it cranked up the crazy apocalyptic waltz at the end; given Cameron's dancing abilities (and Derek's reaction to them), I thought the match worked. *g*

Thank you!

That's really intense--and I *love* that song. Never heard it before, but I love it...

*sigh* I'm going to have to find a way to catch up on SCC, aren't I? (It came along right as I was drowning in deadlines, unfortunately.) Because it has kickass women and apocalyptic themes...but is it something I can follow, if I've never seen the movies?

Well, *I've* never seen the movies, and I'm not confused at all. The show's actually pretty good at spelling out the basic need-to-know info without endless exposition; it has its anvilly moments, but on the whole...waaaaaaatch. *g* (Do you need to be hooked up in any particular way? I could perhaps help out with such things.)

As for the vid: thanks! Intense is good. :)

That was very, very cool.

Thank you! "Cool" works for me. :)

That was gorgeous. I wasn't that familiar with the song, but it worked so well with the vid content.

Thank you! I actually just discovered this artist a couple weeks ago, from somebody's music spam. I thought it worked, anyway. *g*

That was incredibly well done, I especially like how you superimposed the praying circle with the prisoners' circle.

Eeee, yay! I really liked how that bit turned out, too; good to know I'm not alone. :) Thank you!

The "clear history" thing was a happy accident--I'd been intending to use it as my credits shot, but when I was putting together the pictures/video sequence, I realised it worked *so* much better there.

Given the limited options WMM has for making non-cheesy transitions (star wipe! woo!), your comments about them make me very happy. I *really* wanted those ones to work.

I had a choice between Ellison and Charley for my fourth-tier character, and really, there was no choice: Ellison had the stronger story (and it tied in with my theme better than Charley's did), the more interesting involvement with the main three, and the better visuals. Plus, I fear for Ellison, and wanted to give him as much of a moment in the sun as possible. *g*

I...couldn't resist the bad medal/metal pun. I am weak. :)

Thank you for your comments! I'm very glad you liked it.

I loved this. :D I've seen it recced as intense several times, and that's a wonderful word to describe it. I really enjoyed how that tension builds from beginning to end. It's filled with gorgeous imagery set to great pacing. And on top of all that it really feels like it encompasses the entirety of the universe they've shown so far. :)

Yay! Your comments are very pleasing to me. *g* When I watch the show, I feel like it's progressing, steadily and unstoppably no matter what the characters do, towards Judgment Day; I wanted to try to put across at least a little of that feeling in the vid, and since your comment suggests I succeeded at least a little...I am pleased. *g*

Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it. :)

Downloaded, and OKAY FINE I'LL WATCH THAT SHOW so I bumped Sarah Connor up the queue of TV to be watched/procrastinated with in May when everything is done/in April when I want to pretend it's May.


Knew I'd get you eventually. :)

I recced the vid over here. The relevant part is this:

"serrico's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles's vid Paris Is Burning is a general overview of the first season with spot on editing and a great song choice. I love the sense of movement and how it creates a building frenzy and desperation in the vid. Very well done. Warning: It does, of course, have spoilers through the first season."

Thank you for the rec! I tried to use the movement of the music as best I could; your comments on the editing are therefore greatly appreciated. :)

I'm glad you liked it!
