I've never really been a Bon Jovi fan, but Blaze of Glory is my favorit song by them. And about the video. . .

That

Was

Awesome.

Great job!

I didn't want to go into all of the details, because I was just warming up my PC at work when I saw this thread, but that was one damn fine piece of work.

I'm very, very glad that I get in to work earlier than most, because I was in tears by the end of it, and I would have been mortified if one of my coworkers had seen me.

One hell of a job!

OMG, I loved it! Although part of me is ashamed to admit it, "Blaze of Glory" is my favorite song. I'm not even kidding. So to mix the song with Firefly/Serenity, one of my other favorite things of all time....it's just so SHINY!!! You did an incredible job with the cuts and each scene really connected with the lyrics. Great job!

(My fave part is the end when they are moseyin' on up to the Heart of Gold Bordello. I always liked that shot because it's one of the few times you see everyone together...and it has a cool gunfighter's feel.....)

Nice vid, but it froze up on the action-heavy bits. wmv files tend to do that, I've noticed. Any chance of an alternate encoding?

I'm brand new to this, so I'm not sure. I'll definitely look at the output options. There are a few little things I wanted to fix anyway. Thanks for the recommendation!

I love it to bits!

Actually, when I first thought about doing a Firefly/Serenity video, the only song that came to mind that would be a perfect match was... you've guessed it, Blaze of Glory

I never did do one and so its like I've got my requested video and didn't even have to put any work into it

Plus you made it a hell of a lot better than I imagine I could have done

Thank you! I can't take credit for the file size/quality because I was pretty clueless about what I was doing. After a bazillion attempts to burn my DVD's to my laptop as avi files (which Windows Movie Maker uses), I was pretty frustrated. I think I had tried about 80 million "free" programs from the web.

So I thought..hey..somebody else surely has gone thru this. So I did a google search and found the whole series was in avi format, but it was something called a bit torrent. (Something that sounded strange and mysterious and possibly a bit evil.

So I read up on what bit torrent was and decided to go that route to get the avi files. That took a goodly long time, and at first I was dismayed when all I could hear was audio on the files. But a co-worker told me I probably just needed a free codec (at which point I said, "hey, what's a codec?" and a long discussion ensued.) He directed me to a site to get the free codec. That was peachy because I could then SEE the files that took agonizing hours to download.

After that I just imported them into my Movie Maker clips gallery, made the movie, and saved it with the recommended format.

Anyway..long story short...I can take no credit for accidental file size/quality. But THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone's positive feedback about the video!! It makes my day.

Thank you, Needy. That's so cool we had the same idea. I've been wanting to do this video for a long time, and the first time I saw Serenity in theatres I was hearing lyrics at certain parts. (When I wasn't hearing my own gasp of dismay and subsequent CRYING, of course. We all know the part I'm talking about. It's in the video.) I'm very glad you like it.

Oh... that is SO incredibly awesome!

Aweful neat how you managed to find a scene for just about every lyric -- that's some work right there!

(I think the sepia-toned horse riding and "everyone walking together" are my favorites. Nice work! )

Hey ya'll...I'm just tickled. I entered the Fireflytalk podcast article-writing contest and won 3rd and 4th place. My articles were read last week (Episode 21) and this week (Episode 22), and in this week's article I shamelessly plugged my own video, this one. It was weird and cool to hear it read on the air. Go check out the podcasts if you haven't!

DREAMSOFTHESPIDER


there were some very awesome cuts on that! The flash as the music kicked in was sweet.

You definitely have an ear for the beats, which not a lot of vidders have, so props! However my complete enjoyment was spoiled by one thing (and I mean this in a constructive way so that you can make more and better vids!): the literal depiction of the lyrics.

I say this as a viewer of vids as well as an editor: it's annoying.

The vid had such potential, and I'm really sad that this is bothering me. To explain (and hopefully not sound arrogant or pretentious), song lyrics don't usually have the best story structure (unless it's a ballad), and a vid is essentially a little story. So in trying to match each lyric perfectly, the visual story is lost. Sometimes the stars align and the clips match the audio, but to do it for each and every stanza takes me out of the vid.

Song choice rocks, editing is spot on (except for a slipped clip near the end), it kinda floundered during the musical interlude, and I liked the bookends of the grainy sepia film.

Thanks for this first vid, and I hope it's not your last!

I have been waiting for a Blaze of Glory video to be done. I dont posses software to do these videos so i havnt done one my self.

That track by Bon Jovi for young guns is one of my all time favourite tracks, and the lyrics almost preciesely describe Serenity and crew, especially Mal.

The lyrics describe aspects of the show/movie really well.

Basically saying;
*They keep moving on
*No-one knows where they are apart from god

etc etc.



Nice one.

This was probably the best fan video i've seen, the song choice sensational. Now this is the type of thing that studios should be seeing, how much the people want the series or the trilogy to return. Shiny stuff.
