So every time I watch a vid for this show I have to wonder if it wasn't created entirely for vidders. The source material just looks like so much fun to play with. And eery second of this is so fucking awesome! I love it so much!

It definitely feels like that to me! It has so much visual crack, and I wanted to dive into that and just have fun with it after all the Srs Bsns angst of my last one. Really glad you enjoyed it. =)

You know what I just realised the other day? 2:29 is the cumshot metaphor. (I know, I'm very, very slow.) You dirty man, you.

Seriously though, this is freakishly awesome. You utilise all the speed changes in-source beautifully, and it may well be that you added some of your own as well, but it all looks seamless.

I bet it went down brilliantly at CVV! :D Or were you too drunk to notice?

We read this comment on the ipod in the room at the con and people laughed. Who ever thought I'd corrupt sweet, naive little Nicky?!

I did add quite a lot of time toggle, so it's wonderful to hear that you can't tell for sure! There's so much slow motion in the show that it just seems to beg for time toggle.

CVV is a blur. For serious. I ... think it went over well?

This is 100% awesome. Wow. You're the king of the vids tonight my friend. :)
bradcpu: Seekerbradcpu on August 10th, 2010 02:03 pm (UTC)
Aww, thank you! The show is 200% awesome with the visual crack, so it kind of does the work for you.

That was awesome! Exquisitely crafted, if I may say.

brb watching again :D
bradcpu: Seekerbradcpu on August 10th, 2010 02:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! Also, LOVE THE ICON!!

That's just spectacular! Such intensity in both the visuals and the content, and the editing is perfect—not too fast, not too slow, not too distractingly full of effects. And hot, too!
bradcpubradcpu on August 10th, 2010 02:05 pm (UTC)
LOL, such an appropriate icon. Thanks so much about the vid. The show is so well shot and presented that you really don't need a lot of effects. I mean... the show *is* an effect. :)

Whoa. ;)

I started at Vimeo but about 10 seconds in, I knew this was a keeper so I popped back and downloaded the WMV and finished the rest of the way. :D

Such awesome use of speed control, just amazing work! Beautiful, professional and a total pleasure to watch! *applause* ♥!
bradcpu: Seekerbradcpu on August 10th, 2010 02:06 pm (UTC)
*bows* This one was SO much fun to put together! I've been dying to dive into all the visual crack and just go nuts with it. I mean, this show was made for vids. Really glad you enjoyed it!

OMG NEW SEEKER VID! DOWNLOAD, DOWNLOADDDD!

Edit: UNF UNF UNF This vid is a Seeker orgasm! And obsessive24 is so on the money with the metaphorical magical cumshot, omg. Gotta say, this has a fantastic musicality to it. It's really so much of a music video, which is so appropriate for Club Vivid ^^ I adore it for all the coolness and consideration that I know is in it, but which I'm both unable to pinpoint or articulate the moment.

Although I love the way you used the No Undies World peeps in a slow-mo, grungy, moshpit sort of way. Delicious and sweaty! Plus, little things like 1:56 where Triana hits the water on the beat of the cymbal crash. NICE.

I'd dance the pants off this.

You're champion.

This vid is a Seeker orgasm!
LOL, that totes should have been the vid summary. I was just trying to let go of everything, Jedi-style, and focus on expressing the music. In a really naughty way.

No Undies World as a naked moshpit was kind of the cornerstone idea for the vid. The show as so much visual crack and so many sexual metaphors and orgasm faces and such that I just couldn't resist diving into all of that.

I'M SO GLAD YOU LIKED THIS ONE! Your posts inspired it just as much as they did Milly's vid. Wish you could have been there dancing to it (and to Party In The Midlands) with us. But you were there in spirit. And in name, thanks to Milly. :)

I am in awe. This is amazing.

Aww, thank you!

Awesome video, fantastic job putting this together! Seriously one of the best Seeker fanvids!


Though I would've liked to see a bit of Zedd's badass spells too, and a tiny bit more Cara, but this doesn't change the fact that I love this video! *goes to watch it again* :D
bradcpu: Seekerbradcpu on August 10th, 2010 02:13 pm (UTC)
Really glad you liked it!

I wanted to include some Zedd, but most of his scenes didn't fit with the sex and sexual metaphors. I considered using some stuff with him and Shota, but there just wasn't room. :( Totes need to do a Zedd vid at some point.

Moar Cara is DEFINITELY on the way.

MY MIND IS BLOWN BY THE SEXY
Mine too! This show! I mean, wow, *look at this show*! That desert fight scene is a great example. I mean, I don't think I've ever used that much from any one scene in a vid before, but you Just. Can't. Cut. AWAY!!

Really glad you enjoyed it. :)
cozzybob: hexidecimal - evil cacklecozzybob on August 7th, 2010 10:32 am (UTC)
Wow. That was the hottest thing I've seen in a long time, and the sequence of clips was amazing. I love how you use the speed ups/downs of the source.

Contains sex, violence, sexy violence, violent sex,

LOL! Yes. I said hot already, didn't I? Hoooooooooooot.
bradcpu: Seekerbradcpu on August 10th, 2010 02:18 pm (UTC)
Thanks, you! So glad you liked this one.

Most of the speed changes weren't in source, but so much of the show is in slow motion that it just begs me to add those. And, this show? HOLY GOD YES IT'S HOT. Just wanted to kind of show that off, and dance to it. :)
littleheaven70 on August 7th, 2010 10:53 am (UTC)
Wow, Brad. Beautiful source, but edited so very beautifully. Hypnotic and dirty and very, very slick. Watching your vids is like reading really well written fic - the internal editor in my head stops pointing out the errors and just shuts up and lets me sit back and immerse myself in it without anything throwing me out of the reverie. Fantastic.

WOW.

Wow.

Can I fanboy your feedback? Because I think I just did.

I mean, holy crap. I would have settled for "fun vid!" :)

Thank you. Really.

How is it you manage to deliver the goods every time?! I love the action, love the sexy, love the sexy action. I particularly love Richard's, erm, wood at 0.44 and Nicci's expression and reverb at 3.09. Just totally seamless.
bradcpu: Seekerbradcpu on August 10th, 2010 02:33 pm (UTC)

Hahaha, I was wondering if anyone would catch that. My mind, it is a strange place. Welcome to it. :)

I can never get over how flattering it is to get a compliment like this from you, charmax. It's like Superman calling you heroic. :P As I suspected, you and your vids were a hot topic at the con once again. I remember one person talking about how everything you release is flawless and wonderful, and another pining for the day they get to meet you.

This was absolutely amazing. *claps* So sexy *thud*
Love that song btw.
bradcpu: Seekerbradcpu on August 10th, 2010 02:35 pm (UTC)
Really glad you liked it! I love the song too... I had to be really picky with the music because the show is so visual that you have to have a song that matches that intensity.
