I was listening to my music and then it just hit me that Zeromancer's "Send me an angel" could be perfect for making a Serenity vid. I made it last night after figuring out how to make it possible for my windows movie maker to stretch out to widescreen.

Now let me know what you guys think ;)

WARNING: If you don't like spoilers and haven't seen Serenity yet, you should *not* watch the vid, cause it's maaaad with spoilers.

Like it! The vid is a little bleached out looking but then I assume that was a deliberate treatment? I was taken with the idea and tried out a number of different songs/genres - nothing country really seemed to work as it did in the series, as the film has a much bleaker tech feel. The best I could come up with was Coldplay's 'Square One' from their X&Y album which I thought worked - see what you think.

It is the best! I loved it! It will forever stay on my hard drive playlist. What a kind person you are to just put this out to everyone in this day and age were everyone is out to make a buck.

You are my new hero for today!

A most hertfelt thank you for your work in this project.

Do you think you can elaborate what you mean with bleached? If this is about the color quality of the vid then it's beyond my control, sadly windows movie maker has poor effects to use. I've tried getting Adobe premiere to work, but it kinda goes ballistic every time I try and put in a clip... I think it hates me lol

If it's anything else then maybe I can learn from it

This came out really well. You did a great job!

And this cover of "Send Me an Angel" fits great. It brought a whole different feeling to it. It's interesting to see what it would be like without the country-style music. Nice to see that it works either way.

Good job, again! :)

Awesome video the song fit really well with the clips of the movie. Have you seen Cub's movies you both have some real talent. Thanks for sharing the video. Never heard of the band before, but the song was pretty kick ass.

Well now Miss Kitten being winked at by an attractive woman just makes my day!

Arrrgh go-se Windows Movie maker (resists urge to cuss in public) truly dreadful. Don't get on with Premiere myself - have you tried Vegas? Much nicer IMHO.

Download a demo and give it a whirl or if you aim to misbehave you can liberate a copy from emule to 'cough' try before you buy.

Have a great weekend. FB

pretty good vid!
I like the (pun intended) kind of washed out, B/W part about 3:15 through....

You showed it...gahh. Kudos to you for having the guts to include all the mad spoilerage.

Once again, well done!

Still think it's awesome. You're making me want to buy the track as well!

Well ma'am I have a vivid imagination, and a bit of flirtation makes the world go round!

Hope you find Vegas more to your taste - like most of the heavyweight programs it requires a bit of study to get the best out of it. There are a lot of web resources to help smooth the learning curve - you can try some of these sites:

Premiere vs Vegas
http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/archive/index.php/t-55519.html

Hope you will find these of interest - if you come up with any good sites with tutorials post them back if you have time.

Is that one of mine or someone else's vid with that name? Cause there *should* be no problem with mine, as they're all made with the same tools and they're put on the same place, in the same format...

Your vid is f*cking awesome! Thank you! Perfect synchronicity with what is happening in the story and the emotional punch of the music and lyrics.

Well done!
