Whoa. I feel like my brain has just been put in a blender. And someone set it to "liquefy".

Must return with thoughts after a few more watches. That is some Primo Whitney there.

Thanks. :)

Not totally unrelated, I'm putting a new blender on my Christmas list. Chopped ice here I come!

I've only seen a couple of episodes of Life and don't recall the dialogue, but I'm assuming that all of that audio "stuff" is your work, right? So very sophisticated. And the textures! I know I said the same thing with Stronger Forest, but you continue to develop and it's amazing.

I think my favorite moment is the warmth of the guitars at 0:57 paired with that great shot of him looking up into the light...the warmth of the sound and the light match so well.

I had seven sound layers in Vegas and holy crap did it take forever to render considering it's not even 2 minutes long. It was my first time working different audio filters and effects, so I ran with it and took it really far.

I'm still in my "omg, textures on vids are the best thing eva!!1!!1!!!" phase.

I'm so glad you like the warmth. I tried to show how "warm" the show really is by contrasting with the blues and muddled look.

I have seen no episodes of this show, but I'm utterly flabbergasted by the pretty.

the colors and.. and.. the colors! overlays! You're so damn good at the overlays that they look so... PRETTY and awesome and oh. just all around awesome.

It's a great show. The lighting and composition is amazing. I would vid every second of it if I could. There are some shots I want to make babies with.

I'm in love with how many layers I can get in Vegas (as compared to Windows Movie Maker). I ended up with 5 video layers.

That makes me giggle like nooothin' else. Now I might have to make time to see this show if it's oh so deliciously shot.

I didn't mention this last time--but the font! I love the font. Of course I don't think there has been a font used in your vids that I haven't drooled over.

During my vidding process, I thought about the way you use multiple layers during the making of my Sylar vid and decided that this would be the vid in which I did some overlays myself! I got kind of scared of the result because new things freak me out, but hey, that's how I'm rolling I guess.

The pilot is especially pretty.

I horde fonts like it's my job. I have 4 huge folders of fonts.

Hell yeah. Multiple layers for everyone! I say go with it, try it out, the result isn't always what matters.

It's one of my favorite shows right now.

There's many shows I've started watching because of the amazing vids that have been produced.

This is so pretty! If I knew more about Life I could probably come up with more than that, heh. I mean, the set up came through loud and clear--really liked those overlayed soft text screens with the background info.

And I loved how, especially in the first half or so, how the screened/added video layer looked like it was being shown onto his character from a projector in the room with him--really cool. :D

Some of the clips are very contextual, but I tried to make the set up of the show clear. Being that it's my imagined opening sequence I wanted it to be able to convey the concept of the show to a new viewer.

Most of the soft text screens were from crime scene videos and an internet website that were in scenes from the show. He Googles himself at one point and I thought it was perfect to use the graphics from the site because it tells a lot of information visually and I was able to play with it to make it do what I wanted.

I overlayed scenes of him fighting with a suspect underwater with them nearly choking each other until his partner decides to taser the water to knock them both out. The effect kinda looks like it's projected onto him, so yay, I'm glad it's noticable.

Oh, please do vid every moment of this show! I just adore this! And how inspired to use the water overlay?! The whole creation is just... sumptuous.

Thanks. Yay, I'm glad you liked the overlays. :)
