Video Title: Smile
Song Title/Artist: Smile - The Supernaturals
Show: BtVs/Ats, Ensemble
Summary: Feel good video featuring groups of clips roughly under the headings “Dancing fools”, “Food fun”, “Silly costumes”, “Do my boobs look big in this?”, “Hair”, “The many faces of Angel”, “Hands up”, “Xander Harris: the puppet master”, “Watchers not watching”, “Lame juggling”, “Say cheese”, "Evil hands".
Length/Format: 3.42, (Xvid, Stream)
Notes: "Smile" is an old favourite from 2004 remastered for more joy day 2009. New clips added and tighter editing but still stays true to the original.

Video Title: It's Not Over Yet
Song Title/Artist: It's Not Over Yet - Goldfrapp
Show: Merlin BBC
Summary: Nimueh shows Morgana the path to her destiny.
Length/Format: 2.53, (Xvid, Stream)
Notes: No matter what version of the Arthurian legend I've watched or read I've always found Morgana the most interesting character. "Merlin" has been no exception. I was struck by how awful it must be to be a seer to know that you are destined to betray and lose everything and everyone you hold dear. Merlin's magic will go on to earn him authority, respect and love in Arthur's Camelot whereas Morgana is destined to be alone and ostracised by her "gift" in short she is going to become very much like Nimueh. I wanted to explore that in this vid. I imagined that Nimueh was connected to Morgana in the same way as the Dragon is to Merlin. So here we have Nimueh converting Morgana into Morgan le Fay and rather enjoying herself while she's doing it. The femslash vibe is entirely intentional so feel free to just look at the pretty.

Song Title/Artist: Smiley Faces - Gnarls Barkley
Show: Torchwood
Summary: Team Torchwood and "how hard this life can be."
Length/Format: 3.05, (Xvid, Stream)
Notes: Premiered at Club Vivid, Vividcon 08.
This was made during my old comp's death throes. As a result it isn't quite as flash as originally conceived (only the title sequence remains of Charmax's fancy Torchwood vid that never was) nevertheless I feel my fondness for team Torchwood does come across and that's the main thing. Gwen and Jack have the best smiles in fandom.

Show: Life On Mars/Ashes To Ashes
Summary: The Gene Genie gets his groove on.
Length/Format: 2.53, (Xvid, Stream)
Notes: Premiered at Club Vivid, Vividcon 08.
What struck me most about the differences between LoM and A2A wasn't so much the difference between 70s and 80s but more the socio-economic and regional differences. My 1980s childhood looked much more like LoM than A2A. I went out of my way to make comparisons between Alex's Middle class 80s London and Sam's working class Manchester. In case anyone was wondering the title sequence was heavily influenced by "The Sweeney."

Thanks [ profile] astartexx for the awesome essay. So, when you posting your vid then? ;)
This vid was made to premiere at [ profile] winchestercon 07. The notes are quite lengthy so you may want to read them after you've watched the vid. I don't usually do notes and on the odd occasion when I have they certainly weren't this long but I thought, what the hell, go for it.

Supernatural - The Way We Get By

I was making a video to premiere at Wincon and I thought I may as well remaster "The Way We Get By" while I was at it. It's mostly just straight forward substitution for DVD source with a few small tweakings.

This was actually made almost 12 months ago (Sept 22. 06) and up until now only available on DVD. The brains behind the song and the storyboard came from buyer Eric.

I've come to the conclusion that I will be unable to offer a postal option for my DVD. Sorry to anyone who was holding out for this option, maybe I'll be able to get it right for the 07 collection. For the time being the web download option is still avaliable here. This will be accessible until the end of the month. If there really is no other way and you really want my dvd email me (charmax[at]bronze-ambition[dot]net) and we'll see if we can sort something out.

Here are my 2 Club Vivid vids for Vividcon this year. I have no idea if they were actually shown (yet!) These were both finished in May so I've been sitting on them since then. It's been killing me! Anyone who knows me knows patience is not one of my strongest suits. So finally here we go, YAY! I hope y'all enjoy them. Any and all feedback would be awesome, seriously.

Thank you so much [ profile] killabeez for giving me your thoughts on Boogie Wonderland back in May, "Awesome vid!" from you made me incredibly happy and reassured. [ profile] astartexx,  massive thanks go to you because, as always, your commentary, squee and insight was/is invaluable! [ profile] colour_me_sassy, the feedback then and the feedback every time you give it is cherished. Without going too overboard with the cheez and the embarrassment - I love you all. :P

Boogie Wonderland was inspired by [ profile] killabeez's "Puttin On The Ritz" (I'm a hopeless fangirl ;)) but I've moved the focused era on 20yrs or so.

Video Title: Boogie Wonderland
Song Title/Artist: Boogie Wonderland - Earth, Wind and Fire
Movie: Multi
The Rocky Horror Show
Saturday Night Fever
Staying Alive
Roll Bounce
Boogie Nights
The Full Monty
Car Wash
Can't Stop The Music
Summary: Cracktastic. Glitter, sparkles and gratuitous crotch shots..
Length/Format: 2.21(Xvid)
Notes: Boogie Wonderland was the song I picked out of the list of songs given on the [ profile] vividcon LJ. I hope whoever gave it as a prompt thinks I did it justice. The song was edited down and melded with another party type track to give it that extra Disco vibe. 
Yes, some crappy movies were purchased for the purpose of this project. That's how much I love vidding. I'm never quite sure if I should do notes or what details you would like to read so if you have any specific questions then please ask in the comments.

Notes: I have to admit I had forgotten how little screen time Puss gets in Shrek 2 which made the vid a very different sort of challenge from Boogie Wonderland with it's seemingly endless clip choices. Again, as with Boogie Wonderland, if you have any specific questions about this vid please fire away in the comments.

Notes: Spoilers for the last 3 eps of season 3.

Out of two song choices left to a poll this song came out on top. There was a small turn out in numbers but this was clearly the voters' pick. Thanks to all who voted! :). Also if you've not seen it yet, check out the Master fanmix here.

Video Title: Still Breathing
Song Title/Artist: Still Breathing - Duran Duran
Character/Fandom: Spike, BtVs, AtS
Summary:Spike's redemption song
Length/Format: 4.06 (Xvid)
Notes: What it says on the tin image, commissioned as part of the Sweet Charity Auction, RAINN 2.0.

This is very much a character study of remorse and redemption. The parallels are to show where he's been, how far he's come and how far he still has to go in a geographical sense but more in a personal journey towards becoming a hero. It's also about how he can't escape his past because the same situations keep arising but this time he reacts differently. It's about never going back to his old self or repeating the same mistakes.

My buyer is happy so that makes me happy. :)

Thank you so much [ profile] xandra_ptv, [ profile] messyjessie58 & [ profile] giandujakiss for your helpful beta comments. Sorry if it was you that missed out on the beta process, in total I had 6 opinions on this (which is way more than I usually have) and I had to draw the line somewhere.
