Thanks to obsessive24 for the insightful last-minute beta.


I went into this project wanting to think as little as possible and just enjoy it... to make something fun for fans of the show.

But, as usual, I had a lot more time to think about it than I had to actually work on it, so some meta ideas kind of wormed their way into it - some involving Ando and a Peter Parker parallel. But mostly it's about defining "hero" and taking control of life. Hopefully there's still some fun in there. :)

The song was both a blessing and a curse. The lyrics and stop-start tempo really inspired me. But the musicality of it all kind of comes at you in layers: sticky guitars, cymbal crashes everywhere, mushy melodic vocals, and waves of drums sprinkled over the top. It was very difficult to find the right pace for the vid because you can't really latch onto any one element of the music. In the end, I just went with the good old trial and error approach.

I used quite a bit of time toggle because both the song and the source seemed to be suggesting it. (Plus - whee! Time toggle!) Aside from that, not much here in the way of effects. I tried to let the source do the work for me. A couple of shots took some tweaking, mostly to remove subtitles or make the clip-to-clip motion/lighting/eyeline a little less jarring.



Too alarming now to talk about
Take your pictures down and shake it out
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
Use that evidence, race it around

There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
He's ordinary

Don't the best of them bleed it out
While the rest of them peter out
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
Use that evidence, race it around

There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
He's ordinary

Kudos my hero leaving all the best
You know my hero, the one that's on

There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
He's ordinary


Hope you enjoy the vid!
