New vid

5th February 2007 (23:12)
Tags: ,

For the first time in, like, ever, I've actually managed to create a new vid!  Feedback will be welcome - if it's negative I promise not to sulk too badly...

Fandom: Buffy/Angel
Title: Faith the Vampire Slayer (Opening Credits)
Music: BtVS theme by Nerf Herder
Format: WMV
Length: 0.49
Size: 11.9 MB
Summary: Imagine if Eliza Dushku had agreed to step into Sarah Michelle Gellar's shoes after Buffy season 7, instead of going off to do Tru Calling instead... 

Download link

Notes: These are the opening credits for Season One of Faith the Vampire Slayer, a 22-episode fanfic epic being written by frogfarm (who also created the picture above). Some of the characters and actors will be familiar, others are new and original for the story.  Clips which are actually taken from Tru Calling and Dark Angel should, for the purposes of this vid, be assumed to be clips of the actors appearing in Season 1 of FtVS instead (in other words, this isn't meant to be a cross-over).

 

Thanks to frogfarmfor the initial inspiration, critical input, beta duties, and constant praise and encouragement. And also (indirectly) for the green duck. :)

I take it I don't need to start sulking just yet, then?

Thanks. :)

BtVS

If any sulking is required it will NOT be in connection with this.

best show ever btvs by touristrgirl

Is there some significance to the casting of Michael Weatherly or do you just like him? I had to look him up because I didn't remember ever seeing him on "Buffy" or "Angel".
And you did a nice job on the promo btw, good choice of Faith clips and I see you've added Dana into the mix as well as Willow.

The choice of which actors to feature was frogfarm's, not mine, based on the characters appearing in the story. At this point, even I don't know who the character being played by Michael Weatherly will be...

Glad you liked it!

Out of Africa - Faith

Excellent! No sulking required. But now I really, really want to watch this show! *sigh*

Is frogfarm writing this in narrative or script format? Because I just can't get into script - it totally takes me out of the story and I get bored. But if it's in narrative format, I'd definitely be interested in reading.

I know what you mean.... 'Tru Calling' wasn't utterly awful, but I kept having to remind myself that Eliza's character didn't have super strength...

It's in narrative form: so far it looks like three chapters (being the teaser and Acts 1 and 2 of "episode 1") are written, along with quite a few prequels and linking stories.

I was impressed by the ambitious nature of the enterprise, and serendipitiously was just playing around with alternative versions of the credits when I saw frogfarm's announcement of the story.

Well, I was standing on the shoulders of giants, or something on those lines.

Thanks!

Very good. The intercuts were very smooth and no jarring lighting transitions.

Thanks! (Although if you watch it half a hundred times, as I had to while making it, you might notice a few more flaws...)

Great video, very seamless editing, and nice clip selection. Bravo! I know it's been almost a year since you posted this, but I was wondering what video editor you used?

Thanks!

I use Ulead VideoStudio... version 11 currently but back then it may have still been 9. Plus DVD-Decrypter and VirtualDubMod.

Very impressive...if only it had really happened. :( I suppose I'll have to make do with the fanfic it's based on.

Awesome vid! And I loved Michael Weatherly being there...

Thanks!

He's there because frogfarm said he ought to be. I didn't have a clue why at the time, although now I think I know which OC he's playing. :-)
