New Farscape music video: Prayer
Title: Prayer
Fandom: Farscape (spoilers through 4.19, We're So Screwed Part 1: Fetal Attraction)
Music: Mary by Kristin Hoffmann
Stats: WMV, 23.0MB, 4:18
Desperation is its own religion.

This is an Aeryn POV, concentrating on S4 eps Prayer and WSS Pt. 1 (though there are some of her past trials/tribulations worked in as well, where the lyrics seemed to call for reflection upon those).  Lyrics are linked from the download page and I'll be adding more detailed notes as soon as I can get them written up.

Can I just say it's PERFECT here so it's on record in your LJ?

You can say it's perfect (which it isn't) if I can say you're crazy ;)

Clamshellers?!?! 0_o That sounds . . . dirty.

Why am I not surprised? ;Þ

*ruffles O's hair* You silly! Sometimes a clamshell is just a clamshell, darlin' :)

Came here via farscape_weekly, and wow, you've got some amazing vids. I'm sure you've mentioned it somewhere, but my brain is a little fried right now- what program are you using? There are some pretty awesome cuts/blends/fun fx things you do with your videos and I was really surprised, as most of the videos I used to watch were standard cut/fade fare. Also, excellent music- I'm really not familiar with it but I like it and it's very original as opposed to the 20,000+ Lifehouse "Hanging by a Moment" vids there are across multiple fandoms.

You even got me to really love the Aeryn-as-damsel-in-distress episode despite my usual distaste for it. It wasn't a bad episode- in fact, it was a very good one- but I really don't like watching the character in that sort of state because it does seem so desperate and well- whatever. We love to put the characters through the wringer and so do the writers, so all I can say is excellent job of it- you made an amazing vid (and I really like your others too!)

First, thank you so much for your comments -- getting feedback at all is rare enough (any vidder can tell ya the download-to-feedback ratio is a bit disheartening ;)), but getting detailed feedback is an incredible treat!

I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro. Since I'm part of a Farscape vidding community and watch a lot of vids in addition to occasionally making some, I feel like I've seen all of the richest footage about a billion and two times. So I do try to find ways to make the clips fresh and to tailor them specifically to the music (I was a dancer for a number of years, so choreography is always kicking around in my head). I try not to succumb to the effects-for-the-sake-of-shiny vibe *too* often...they need to serve the story in order to really work. I also should start learning Adobe After Effects so that I can explore more creative usage options.

Thanks again -- creative types really are rather needy and I am no exception :)

chasa, baby, that was amaaaaazing. I watched it twice in a row 'cause I *had* to. You sent chills up my spine and how the *frak* did you do that shot with a John close-up in the foreground and John contemplating infinity in the background? That was simply incredible.

Wow.

I am sooooo using this video to scape some friends who are into romance and angst.

I am *so* excited to hear that you liked it -- puts a big smile on my face! The John/BHTB shot is a pain in the ass mask that I tinkered with for a really long time in order to try to get a seamless look. I got what I wanted in the end and am happy with it...but my level of picky when it comes to masking explains why I don't do a lot of that...*hee*
