New Dexter music video: Make Lemonade
Title: Make Lemonade
Fandom: Dexter; through 1.04
Music: Gotta Lotta Lemons by Groove For Thought
Stats: WMV (28.0MB) or DivX (32.3MB), 2:47
Dexter's gotta lotta lemons.

Download at my site.

Meet Dexter Morgan, your friendly neighborhood serial killer. But he uses his "powers" for good, so don't be haters, y'all! I guess I should warn that there's some graphic footage (when your lead character is a forensic blood spatter analyst and a sociopathic murderer, you'll have that), but it's used in a blackly humorous way here and I don't think it's too horrifying. It might even be sort of festive, given the Halloween season. Yeah, I'm going with festive.

Feedback is as tasty as a bag full of Halloween candy...but like, way fewer calories :)

Hey, this was a bloody fantastic vid! The perfect song with excellent editing. I'm gonna watch more of your vids now.

Thank you so much! And I hope you enjoy the other vids as well :)

BRILLIANT!!!

*claps like a retarded baby seal*

Boy, you sure turned that one around, mighty quick. And the visuals fit the lyrics just perfect.

Does your mind go straight to a certain soundtrack song while you're watching these shows for the first time, or does all that come about from your note-taking process after you sit down with a certain concept in mind?

I was wondering the same thing. :)

Seeing as how Dexter's my newest tasty morsel...

I really, really, enjoyed that. Everything after 1:17 was really good, but the last 45 seconds or so were untouchable. Perfect match. It all really jivved well. My favorite bits were the "just look behind the page" bit, the drinking noise bit, and again, the last 45 seconds hit it out of the park. Killer job---no pun intended. ;)

Re: Seeing as how Dexter's my newest tasty morsel...

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed, especially since I knew you were also on board the Dexter train :) I was able to preview part of the song online before I ordered the CD, but then when I heard the whole thing and that drinking noise at the end, I was dying with laughter over how to use it. It was such fun to work with all of the song's peppy accents and figure out how to twist them for the vid.

LOVE IT!!! I love that jaunty happy music and all of these graphic scenes where he's gleeful executing his plans. It's a wonderful mix! Please tell me there's some place where you an put this up for an award.

Knowing that you got a big kick out of it is totally a prize as far as I'm concerned! Thank you :)

Wow, that was seriously awesome. The timing, editing, all perfect. :D
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: October 27th, 2006 03:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks very much for your comment! The show is really serving up some great material to work with thus far...putting this together was a blast.

Awesome Video!!

Thanks for watching (and commenting)!
webeh From: webeh Date: October 27th, 2006 11:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Great video. You did a good editing job. But, I think what I especially loved was your choice of music. It sort of reminds me of those old gameshows (Price is Right maybe?), which cracks me up. Strangely, despite the chipper sound, the song still feels appropriate with the show.
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: October 28th, 2006 02:04 am (UTC) (Link)
A song with the right feel was definitely critical...as I mentioned in a comment above, I didn't think that anything that sounded like mainstream pop *or* edgy/alternative would really work, so I got lucky with being able to find this one! I'm really pleased that you enjoyed the vid.

OMG, that song was perfect for Dexter! This was wonderful- fun and distrubing, all at the same time- just like the show itself. Thank you so much for sharing it with all of us.

And, congrats, I think this might be the first Dexter vid!

I think I need a Dexter icon!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: October 28th, 2006 04:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Fun and disturbing is exactly what I hoped this vid would be, and I'm so pleased that you thought it was! Thank you so much for the lovely comment :)

Holy crap, it's amazing!!!!!! paperdollgirl showed it to me, it's utter brilliance! the editing is wonderfully clean and matches the music perfectly! really really great work!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: October 28th, 2006 07:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I am thrilled to know that you enjoyed it so much!

Okay, I admit I've never watched the show but this video is awesome. (I downloaded it a few days ago but the princesses had me doing their bidding so I had to wait to comment ;) ) I love the music and how it matches up with the scenery. And even for someone who hasn't seen the show, it shows irony with a twist of scary just as this music seems to embody! hehe I need a new way to say "it rules" because you're always ruling the vids, lady!!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: November 2nd, 2006 02:09 am (UTC) (Link)
Royalty can be so demanding sometimes ;) I'm glad you liked the vid even though you haven't seen Dexter...yet!

This was just fantastic! I love it :D
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: November 3rd, 2006 04:20 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm so glad! And thank you :)

I adore this vid. It's bizarrely swinging upbeat but absolutely perfect for Dexter. Wonderful song choice and brilliant execution of the idea in the editing. Must watch your other vids once I've seen those other shows.
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: November 19th, 2006 10:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you so very much! I'm thrilled that you felt that way about it (and I hope you enjoy the other vids later on) :) Finding that song was kismet -- it's like it was made-to-order for the concept.
dualbunny From: dualbunny Date: December 3rd, 2006 03:43 am (UTC) (Link)
Absolutely awesome! The show is on my list to-watch, but I finally broke down and watched this anyway. And I'm so glad I did! It's slick, clever, and even without watching the show I can tell the song is a perfect match. Especially with your fantastic editing. The opening is wonderfully catchy with a lovely segue into the seedier side of the character, and I couldn't help wanting to chuckle (while cringing) at so many of those lemonade matches. And the last 30 seconds or so are just so, so cool. :D
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: December 3rd, 2006 04:01 am (UTC) (Link)
What lovely comments -- thank you!! I hope it made you even more eager to see the show, which is really fantastic :) And I don't know what it says about me, but this vid still makes me feel all happy and peppy...as a friend of mine put it, Dexter is totally America's Serial Killer Sweetheart.

Dexter is my shiny new love, and this vid made me very, very happy! Which is a weird thing to say with so many scenes of carnage, but what can I say? I find the sick sense of humour on the show really winning. *g*

The song choice is just spot on -- all that frothy irony and slick groove are perfect match for the tone of the show, and for the city of Miami itself as well. Your editing is splendid, and like a lot of people who've commented already, I'm in love with the last 30 seconds. Especially the kickass flow of the movement from Dexter circling down on his chair to him dancing with Astor in his arms. Smoooooth.

Which is a weird thing to say with so many scenes of carnage, but what can I say? I find the sick sense of humour on the show really winning.

If it's weird, then I'm right there with you in the weirdness! It's so darn lovable...he's so darn lovable.

Thank you so much for your kind words about the vid -- they're truly appreciated. The rotation you mention at the end (in his chair and then with Astor) was something I really enjoyed putting in there...connecting some different aspects of his character by using footage with continuity in the internal motion. Plus, just fun because I'm a motion whore :)
