I feel like I deserve some sort of medal for not talking about this damn show until Festivids reveals. I've been watching since the premiere and dying each week to reblog, livetweet, and post ALL the things. Being sneaky is waaay harder than being buried alive by a rogue coven.

Anyway, I took a similar approach to some of my House vids, picking a theme (in this case, the journey of the witnesses) and doing a season overviewish mood piece to an instrumental. The show is absolutely gorgeous, so it lends itself well to that kind of thing.

Moonlight was posted here for Festivids.

I'm glad I spent it with you.

The audio came from this commercial.

No big thinky thoughts here. The commercial just reminded me of the movie, and I liked the idea of playing around with syncing the sound effects. I added a bit of the Lou Reed original to smooth out the opening and ending of the audio.

Honestly the hardest part was hiding Sly Stallone's constant scowl, which didn't fit the tone of the vid. I think the closest he ever got to a smile in the movie was kind of an amused grimace.

Perfect Day was posted here for Festivids.

Thanks to milly for her advice and encouragement on both of these.

Eeeee! I saw on the guess post that I wasn't the only one by far, but I'm still ridiculously pleased that I was right about your Sleepy Hollow vid! I loved it from the first time I watched it and then I thought that it reminded me so much of your House vids, Vertigo in particular, what with the instrumental music and the dynamic and the use of the show's visuals and the effects and everything. Awesome. :D

I thought the House vids may give me away with that one. You people are just too smart. Really glad you liked it, though. :) I really really enjoy vidding instrumentals. Plus Sleepy Hollow is such fertile vid source.

Yay, so good! I will be showing "Moonlight" at my Festivids party today.

Daww! You're so nice! I hope the party is a blast.

It was a great party, but it would have been better if you'd been there.

OMG THAT SLEEPY HOLLOW VID WAS YOU. That vid is SO GOOD, JFC. (Also, I totally hear you about being sneaky about watching a show! I did that once and good god, NEVER AGAIN.)

I almost died when I saw your comment, no joke. I think I'm pretty much going to be perpetually starstruck. I mean, You're HERES FRIGGIN LUCK.

Oh yes, I have so much show squee to catch up on. Already on to a second vid too!

Oh, pfft. What have I done for you lately, huh? I am the unviddiest vidder on earth at this point.

You, on the other hand, are BRAD FRIGGIN CPU and you made a Sleepy Hollow vid that I love THIS MUCH, and I will endeavor to be patient while you work on the next one rather than making obnoxious grabby hands like I sorely want to. :D

It was ridiculous the face I made while reading this. And that's because you'll always be a goddess to me, the pinnacle of who and what a vidder can be. Hell, what a person can be.

But yes, more vids please.

At this point I'm not sure I'm the pinnacle of anything but epic unproductivity, ahaha. But you are very kind; thank you.

I think we need to take some VVC time this year to sit down with a couple of beers and see if we can call Firefly vids into being by the combined power of our minds. Or, barring that, just hang out. :D

Moonlight was my favorite festivid, and it was YOOOOUUUUU!
bradcpu: Serenitybradcpu on February 10th, 2014 02:20 am (UTC)
Hee, I'm a sneaky little devil. You're so sweet to say that.

Moonlight was really well done. Nice work!

Thanks so much!!

I have the Sleepy Hollow vid tagged to watch when we've caught up here in the UK.

So when Orlando Jones tweeted about Festivids it's a cert that he saw your one then :D
bradcpu: Serenitybradcpu on February 22nd, 2014 04:12 pm (UTC)
Milly recced my vid via twitter and Orlando Jones favorited her tweet, so that was cool. :) He's just a cool guy.

Interested to see what you think about the ending of S1. My vid isn't all that spoilery, but it's still better to watch the series first I think.

Fixed. The flu sucks, as does my html. :P

But yay! Someone wants to download it!

Hi there! Super late comment because I *finally* watched Sleepy Hollow and so I *finally* got to watch this vid! Hope you don't mind a comment on a year old vid post.

(Actually I watched it with my eyes semi-averted during the Festivids show at VidUKon, but I didn't re-watch because spoilers.)

Anyway this is beautiful, and I haven't seen your House vids but the work you did with layering and dissolves is so gorgeous and seems so very you, I'm surprised everyone didn't guess this vid as yours. Beautiful epic Witness feels right here. :D

Thanks so much for the kind words, Fray! This and the House vids are very much my take on "here's how it felt to watch the season", instead of a linear narrative. Really glad you liked it!

This show is just *made* for me. And other people, I guess. :)
