New Doctor Who music video: Pure Imagination
Pure Imagination

Title: Pure Imagination (download here)
Fandom: Doctor Who (Eleventh Doctor; mostly 5.01 and 5.02)
Music: Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley; performed by Gene Wilder)
Stats: DivX (34.7MB), 2:20
"You wanted to come fourteen years ago."
"I grew up."
"Don't worry, I'll soon fix that."


When I say "mostly 5.01 and 5.02," I mean that there's one non-spoilery 5.04 clip and a few little bits from the season promo that ran at the end of 5.01.

Feedback would be awesome if you're so inclined!

Jesus Christ, it's a vid, get in the car!!! Nobody is more surprised than me. You know, I'm not 100% sure this is totally done, but my next class starts tomorrow night and so YES, IT'S DONE.

Until I have time to write anything more (which I'm not sure is even necessary), I'M IN LOVE WITH ELEVEN AND AMY POND. The end.

Lyrics:
Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three

Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of
Pure imagination
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we'll see
Will defy
Explanation

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanna change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You'll be free
If you truly wish to be

eeeeeeee! I love this! You captured the fairytale-like quality that becoming the Doctor's companion has.
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 1st, 2010 03:14 am (UTC) (Link)
Yay! One thing I particularly love about this season is how much those fairytale qualities have been played up...was hoping to make that a focus of the vid and am glad you thought it was in there :-) Thanks for the comment!

Hallooooooo and thank you!! *squeezes* It's so fun to ride the wave of new show love (in this case, not a new show per se, but you know what I mean) and I was glad to be able to express it in vid form. The kind remarks about the editing are much appreciated -- lucky that I even remember how to open Premiere at this point ;-)

Sweet! Great to see a new vid from you.
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 1st, 2010 03:20 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks much! Great to make a new vid :-) Seems to have been temporarily relegated to an annual event, but so it goes.

Eeeeeee!!!!!!! Well that was lovely and wonderfully glorious for our Amy! :D And the song has a tinge of OMINOUS about it which suits the joy and joyness very nicely. I love it!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 1st, 2010 03:25 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks for watching! I love these kids so :-) I agree, there's something vaguely creepy about the song (the whole movie, really, which is something I love about it) and while the vid is primarily about awe and wonder and squee, with Doctor Who you always know that shit is gonna get real at some point and the dark side of the fairytale is in there somewhere.
rat_hospital From: rat_hospital Date: April 29th, 2010 02:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
This is inspired! The music is perfect. A hint of wonder, a hint of ominous, just right for a fairytale-esque series.

That should have been my vid summary! And thank you so much for watching and commenting -- it's much appreciated!

I'm not usually into the music vids (though I view ones that sound interested) so if I comment on one that must mean I liked it. And who couldn't love Gene Wilder singing that song...
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 1st, 2010 06:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad you enjoyed and appreciate you taking the time to let me know :-) And yes, Gene Wilder is great...I'm showing my age when I say that I just couldn't get into the Willy Wonka remake...the original is too special to me.
sekkie From: sekkie Date: April 30th, 2010 12:26 am (UTC) (Link)
I LOVE IT!!! Makes me want to catch up to this Doctor all the more.

The song is perfect for The Doctor--what others have said about the wonder of the words, but the more serious/ominous undertones in the music.

I have missed your vids!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 1st, 2010 06:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I can't wait until you catch up, too -- Wheel Deliver and marathoning and hairballs on my carpet await you :-) I have missed vidding...glad I got one done in 2010, at least.
raspberry_splat From: raspberry_splat Date: April 30th, 2010 04:26 am (UTC) (Link)
Hey you dear lady! About to download this...what a luffly surprise, you vidded WHO..what a JOY to see your JOY!! I knew you were loving it: I'M IN LOVE WITH ELEVEN AND AMY POND" and am so thrilled you got to viddin'! Hugs the stuffin out of your dear vidding self! (We MUST schedule next chat!! BTW, don't you love how he calls her...Pond???)

Off to grab vid now........................!!!
raspberry_splat From: raspberry_splat Date: April 30th, 2010 08:03 am (UTC) (Link)
Back.

Well that was just..so....damn incredibly awesome.
Now Eleven and his...Pond...have been vidded by you and that makes the world a little more right, if you ask me!!! Oh MY....I can't even begin to describe the beauty leaking out all over us from this vid. As others have already said, the music is beyond perfect....because we're flying on that glorious sense of wonder, but the ominous bits are indeed floating underneath us. Every frame you vid is always a gem..I love 'count to three' with your Amelia turning into Amy..sighh! Amelia's flashlight shining right on 'ping'...to name just two precious bits I love. Oh my gracious, the vid is full of wondrous Chasa touches filling up my heart....I gaze at your vids like like Amy gazes at the TARDIS....my eyes FILLED with amazement. Your love of Eleven and Amy Pond is twinkling soooooooooooooooo beautifully.

Let's chat...oh...so sooon! *HUGS*

Thanks so much for watching and commenting -- your lovely words are truly appreciated! So glad you found it magical...that was certainly one of the overall feelings I was hoping to convey.

chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 02:52 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks loads for watching and commenting! I've missed vidding so much! It was great to be able to strike while the iron was hot and translate fresh enthusiasm into vid form.
giandujakiss From: giandujakiss Date: May 1st, 2010 03:51 am (UTC) (Link)
This is gorgeous!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 02:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I had fun making it (vidding ANYTHING, really, is rare and precious indulgence right now :-)).
dualbunny From: dualbunny Date: May 1st, 2010 04:42 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh so *pretty*--I am completely enchanted by the way you blended everything together and made it glitter along to the song. :D
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 02:59 am (UTC) (Link)
That's lovely of you to say -- thanks for watching and commenting!
kassrachel From: kassrachel Date: May 1st, 2010 12:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, this is fabulous! I just saw the first episode of Eleven yesterday and I am totally charmed by it, and by this Doctor, and by DW in general, and this vid captures that feeling of charm for me. I love the whimsy of it. This track is perfect for this Doctor, and oh, the visuals are just glorious -- I love the way you use the TARDIS, and the Doctor's expressions, and beautiful Amy.

Ah, that's such a sweet thing to say and it makes me very happy because it's from very similar emotions on my end that the vid originated! I was optimistic about this season, but it kind of swept me off my feet in a way that I wasn't expecting -- which is what I hoped to convey in the vid (conveniently, Amy's wonder is a great vehicle for showing that). Really glad you enjoyed and I so appreciate your kind comment and the rec -- it means a great deal.

And thanks right back at you -- I appreciate your feedback and am so pleased that you enjoyed the vid!

here from a rec by kass

Fabulous. What a great choice of music. I loved how you compared Amy and Amelia and the Doctor and their sense of wonder.
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 04:34 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: here from a rec by kass

Thanks so very much! I'm excited that you saw the Doctor's sense of wonder in there, along with Amy's -- he's ancient but retains a childlike appreciation for his life, which I think his companions continually help him rediscover.
kouredios From: kouredios Date: May 1st, 2010 03:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wonderful idea, perfectly executed. I love this!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 04:35 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm so pleased you thought so (and appreciate the time you took to let me know)!

Oh, this is really lovely! Perfect song choice.
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 01:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! It was a happy accident to run across the song (I know it well, but am not sure I would have thought of it if it hadn't been featured in a recent commercial) while obsessing over Eleven and Amy :-)

chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 01:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks for both the lovely comment and the rec! I'm touched that you would take the time to watch the vid even though you don't watch Who.
beck_liz From: beck_liz Date: May 1st, 2010 07:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Here from a rec, and I just wanted to let you know that I thought this vid was truly lovely. It embodies the fun and wonder and slight creepiness of traveling with the Doctor. Great stuff.
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 04:36 pm (UTC) (Link)

Oh, that's exactly what I hoped for -- thank you so much for stopping in to tell me how you felt about it!
laurashapiro From: laurashapiro Date: May 1st, 2010 11:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
That was entirely delightful!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 04:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks very much, I'm so pleased to know that you found it delightful!
azdaja_dafema From: azdaja_dafema Date: May 2nd, 2010 12:42 am (UTC) (Link)
This is really really good. I love the combination of Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka voice with Eleven. And oh the wide-eyed wonder of Amy. Fantastic
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 08:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, thank you kindly for the feedback! So glad that you responded to the song choice.
shadowhuntress From: shadowhuntress Date: May 2nd, 2010 07:30 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, how beautiful! I looooooove "Pure Imagination" and I never realized how perfect it fit Doctor Who until I saw this. Matching "if you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it" to Amy's flight outside the TARDIS was just breathtaking. I absolutely loved this.
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 08:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
What lovely comments -- thank you so much for letting me know how you felt about it!

Matching "if you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it" to Amy's flight outside the TARDIS was just breathtaking.

That was the very first visual in my head for this vid and I'm so pleased you enjoyed it! I'm also so pleased that they included a version of that scene in the season overview promo -- a version with no bloody credits playing over it as there are the in episode itself :-)
oschun From: oschun Date: May 2nd, 2010 05:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
This captures the old-fashioned storybook magic and wonder of Eleven and Amy Pond perfectly! Delightful vid!
chasarumba From: chasarumba Date: May 2nd, 2010 08:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm thrilled to know that the vid had that "storybook magic and wonder" (a great way of putting it) for you -- that's what I had hoped! Thank you very much for the kind comment :-)
