vid title: Bale Out Christian Bale Remix
music: RevoLucian
source: Dollhouse
duration: 2:43

notes: Made for Vividcon 2009's Club Vivid. A large part of my inspiration came from Jill Bolte Taylor's stroke of insight TED talk, which was linked by @Dichenlachman, who plays Dollhouse's Sierra. (Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions -- motion, speech, self-awareness -- shut down one by one. An astonishing story.)

summary: Echo, Omega, Caroline, and her imprints.

That was BRILLIANT, and I've only seen one episode of Dollhouse!

Holy crap, that was FANTASTIC! Really clever song choice and so sharply edited. I especially love your use of light starting about 45 seconds in or so.

ETA: And thank you for linking to that TED video as well. That was incredibly powerful.

OMG, this is amazing. I especially like how you placed the shift in the vid at the point where Barbara Streisand enters the remix.

Thanks. I was a bit worried about having the shift so late in the song, but it's how it worked the best. :)

That was amazing - and that mix works so bizarrely well for Dollhouse. It like, wasn't even a joke anymore (the song, natch) - it just worked.

I've listen to the song SO MUCH, even before I was going to vid it. :)

I srsly want you to work on every episode of Dollhouse that every comes out ever. Cuz that was *fucking aamaaaaaazing* It's weird, for a show that uses high stakes and action scenes, I have been disturbingly under-engaged. I think it's mostly a problem of narrative pacing, but all of that vanishes when I see your vid. I want Whitney-goggles to watch the show.

I so would do that. OOOOHHHH GGGOOOOODD! My googles come with 75% more zombies and dancing.

OH MY GOD! This was absolutely amazing. I'm still in awe by your song choice, because it works, it just works. *bows*

OMFG, I got to see it with effects.

One of the best vids of the show, no lie.

Perfect for dancing.

Mmmm, effects.

Seriously? Yay! *has doubts*

This is fucking awesome. I knew it was going to be awesome but still that didn't quite prepare me for just how awesome it was. I LOVE the ambiguity in this, how it can be read differently by both sides of the conversation, and I started laughing at the "shut up if you can't take a joke" and couldn't stop. The editing is AMAZING and the whole vid flows like a crazy thing. Seriously, this is going to be my life anthem for the next month.

Thanks! Echo doesn't need saved and she doesn't need other people's arrogance in trying to save her.

This song will be stuck in your head forever. There's a killer extended dance version that's 13 minutes or so long too.

Babs speaks the truth.

This is meant in the highest compliment kind of way but OMG, even if I hadn't first seen this in your vid post, it would have been blindly apparent that no one else could have possibly made it. Also, Echo is really fucking amazing too.

And on a shallow note, I love the colour gradient overlay at the beginning. So much sensory overload.

Eh, sorry to flail again without having much productive to say, but your brain is a very, very special place, and I maybe want to eat it a little. And Echo's.

This song really gets stuck in your head too.

Still, most original song choice EVER! And great editing to boost!

Brilliant!

That is...I don't really know what that is. It's kinda part crack and part *really thoughtful* meta, and TOTALLY NOT CRACK.

What I *do* know is that it's awesome. :)

I hoped to blur the line between crack and meta, so your comment makes me squee. :)

shiiiiiiiiit this is GOOD. i've actually never listened to the remix (or the original) so i had no idea the female voice would come in, and it was AMAZING. the visual amazingness goes without saying, since it's one of your vids, but god DAMN. i cannot believe how well this worked. and i actually haven't seen any dollhouse, though i know what it's about, and this was coherent and BEAUTIFUL and just SHARP.

--and actually there are so many layers of meta i could go into about violence/male rage (and the rumors around the same time of Bale hitting his mom or sister, i forget which, but that inevitably comes into play, plus images of him from his movies) turned into art. GOD I LOVE THIS.

The original (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrvMTv_r8sA) is audio recorded on the set of the 4th Terminator movie of Christian Bale flipping out on a guy because he dropped a piece of candy and went to pick it up, walking into the scene being filmed.

Thanks so much for the comment. :)

Holy shit! That was awesome! I haven't seen Dollhouse, but this vid made me feel angry and yet fascinated. Kind of like being in a club where weird hormones were pumpng through the air vents or something. The effects work at the end was especially jaw dropping. Inspired song choice. Awesome.

Date: 2009-08-16 02:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] kiki-miserychic.livejournal.com
Thank you. There's a lot of angry in the original audio and then the remix amps it up even more. I'm pretty sure it's been played in a club somewhere. If not, it should be.

Wow, you actually made me care about Echo/Caroline in this vid when I don't give a flip about her on the show. I liked how the look evolved and changed as the song went on. Very interesting idea!

Date: 2009-08-16 03:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] kiki-miserychic.livejournal.com
Thanks. Caroline has a tendancy to get on my nerves in what see see in flashbacks, but I like Echo. It's awesome that it went so far as to make you care about them. :)

I hate to say it but Bale really pains my ears and not just in this instance. It works so well for this, though.The breakdown and loss of control in the audio is well matched to the theme. The sensory overload in the visuals and Bale flipping out in the audio. I love that when Echo gains more self awareness the colouring and lighting is no longer creating a disorientating effect culminating in her taking control with the female voice shouting "shut the fuck up."

From: [identity profile] kiki-miserychic.livejournal.com
Bale could win the king douche contest if there was one.

Thanks for the feedback. :) I was going for Echo being "distracted" by the pretty lights and then it slides away from her growing awareness.

Who hasn't wanted to shout "shut the fuck up" at the top of their lungs once in a while?
