Firefly/Jayne video - Born Too Slow  


Just finished my fourth Firefly video, which focuses on Jayne. It's mostly comedic but with a little bit of a character study-ish message. I was shooting for a style that matched the character - very abrupt, kind of goofy, lots of action. It's definitely different... much like Jayne.

Vid Title: Born Too Slow
Band/Artist/Song: The Crystal Method
Duration: 3:10
Character/Pairing: Jayne
Episode/s: Footage from every episode, but heavy on Ariel
Format: WMV

44.3mb zipped wmv

*Overcome with Jayne-lust*

Seriously.

At the end there...with the guns. GUH.

Beautifully put together and so entirely lust worthy. Just... wow. Damn.

PS... LJ can be so boring. If you would like, I can design you a new layout and background. I made Jacqui's (http://wily-one24.livejournal.com/) and thegranddewru's (http://thegranddewru.livejournal.com/) for them. Plus mine own Adam-holy-hottness one. I'd be more than happy to design one for you, if you'd tell me what you'd like the BG to contain. Can't say it would be done in timely matter...but it would get done.

*whispers* I also designed (and run) this community: http://community.livejournal.com/several_ways/

Oh, you don't need to convince me! I've seen what you did with Jacqui's journal and... wow. I complimented her on it, and she told me you did it. Meanwhile I was really fighting to create anything legible on LJ. I'd [b]love[/b] to use one of your designs!

What would it contain? Well... hmm. Not sure the best way to approach this. Would you want me to point you toward a specific picture? Or should I just say "a cool Mal BG"? Or should I give you some text or a quote or something to play with? I don't want to limit your creativity.

In any case, I really really appreciate the offer, and I'm in no rush - except for how excited I am to see what it'll look like.

Hee hee. You're sweet. Tell me a theme (character/setting/idea) and/or text/quote/whatever, and I will attempt to make magic. I can't guarentee to include the writing, cause sometimes the pictures and the text don't match. But I'll try my damnedest.

Hee, I LOVE doing these. I'm gonna gear up to redo mine and

This is all really tentative and sketchy, but I was picturing the last shot from the opening credits of Firefly with the horses and the sky... but darker, with the horses almost as silhouettes, and the sky full of stars (maybe the sky is space?) Does that make any sense at all? And does that sound like a general idea you can work with? If not, I can come up with something a little more simple and straightforward.
Rinnyrinalin on February 2nd, 2006 11:11 pm (UTC)
Hmmm, that might be tough. But I'm willing to try. My sister has my DVD's though, so any chance you have that screen cap just lying around for me to work from?

Also, any other ideas for an alternative, if I can't make that pretty enough?
bradcpubradcpu on February 2nd, 2006 11:50 pm (UTC)
Sure thing. When I get home from work in four or five hours, I'll do a couple of screencaps (the moment I was talking about and something for a backup plan) and pass them along, no problem. Thanks again!
Rinny: good genesrinalin on February 2nd, 2006 11:55 pm (UTC)
Hee, no problem! I love doing them. They're challenging and fun and a good break from writing fic.

I warn you though, I'm so ridiculously anal retentive about what I make. It MUST be perfect.

You realize you're talking to a professional copy editor, right?

Gah!

Professional?

Now I have a lot to live up to.
Van: Firefly: Jayne yay!van on February 2nd, 2006 07:15 am (UTC)
Brilliant! (Here off of rinalin's rec)

Great pacing and mixing of clips, dialogue. Very fun video.
bradcpu: francesbradcpu on February 2nd, 2006 09:22 am (UTC)
Hey, thanks a bunch. I had a lot of fun making it.

Most people still seem to like my River one better (and my personal favorite is still my Mal vid) but I had more fun with this one than any of the others. I was actually laughing while I was making it.
Van: Firefly: the man they call MEvan on February 3rd, 2006 10:04 pm (UTC)
I haven't seen your other videos. Where can I? I'd especially love to see your Mal video. :) The jump cuts you do are crazy. Do you specifically cut each piece of footage for those, or do you have some very cool way of doing it?
bradcpubradcpu on February 3rd, 2006 10:58 pm (UTC)
I pull clips of the scenes, then I cut them as I'm putting the video together. The Jayne video is by far the one with the most jump cuts. I used a different style for each of my vids - trying to match the style to the character's personality.

You can see all the other ones that I've done so far at my fan art site. I just started vidding in January, so there are only four so far - including this Jayne one, which I haven't put up on my site yet. I like to tweak them a bit before I archive them, so for instance the Mal video at my site has a few different transitions and a bit more spin... probably nothing you'd notice unless you knew what to look for. But I notice, and I just want to be happy with it. There's a similarly tweaked version of the Jayne vid going up at the site tonight.

Here via rinalin's rec and... wow! This is the most fabulous FF vid that I've seen yet! The editing is just amazing!
bradcpubradcpu on February 2nd, 2006 10:04 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much! I was just trying to bring out the Jayneness of every scene as well as I could.
Cei Tree: Oh Adamandraste_tree on February 3rd, 2006 11:16 am (UTC)
...

Okay, you can vid like nobodies business and you can write like whoa.

Marry me?

Okay, maybe not that much but can I at least friend you?
bradcpubradcpu on February 3rd, 2006 11:52 am (UTC)
Ooh, a friend!

I had a ton of fun making the Jayne vid, but most people seem to like my other character vids better for whatever reason. I was actually worried people might get irritated by the editing style of this one. I'm relieved that hasn't been the case.
Cei Tree: Gag Reel: Danceandraste_tree on February 3rd, 2006 12:17 pm (UTC)
I am in love with all your vids, they make me a happy Tree.

I really loved the editing style, it made me sit up and focus. Plus Jayne is so tasty. *wipes drool*

You are all manner of neat-o-spectacular! Therefore you will be friended and adored.
