Whitney you are totally MIA. Where the eff have you been? You are hardly online anymore, and because you dropped your phone in the potty, you are unreachable. We are supposed to be hanging out soon, biatch!

Lizzie!

No freaking joke. I drop my phone in the toliet and it's like I dropped off the planet.

I wasn't home for a day or so and I slept through the other day.

We're so hanging out soon, you ho.

Hi there. [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24 pointed me your way. She said you're one of the best and most underappreciated Firefly vidders and that we have similar styles, so I'd love to check out some of your work. The links seem to have died, though. :(

In any case, I'll definitely keep an eye out for your vid posts in the future. Mind if I friend you?

Cool. Reuploaded. :)

I'll definitely be checking out your vids, I think I have one of them on my HD to do feedback for (Breathe Me).

I'm friending you. :)

Well, after seeing the vid, I definitely take [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's comparison as a compliment. I love how you handle internal motion and interpretation of the music. She mentioned the fact that you don't need a dominant rhythm track to set your pace, and I can see that at work here.

Specifics:

-The pool scene at the beginning is wonderfully timed to musical cues, particularly the ball blink-out into the shot, and I love the cool attitude that fills the opening sequence.
-The dancing and spinning camera movements at 1:00 are just a perfect transition into the meat of the episode, and it's punctuated really well with the zoom shot on Ath. Love the well-timed punch just after that as well.
-BRILLIANT sword swing at 1:54. (Mirrored six seconds later by Ath) Had me grinning.
-My favorite thing about the vid is the pre-fight montage from 2:08 to 2:15, ending in the first blow. Does a terrific job of building tension and then going into the action.

I really enjoyed this, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Quick question, if you don't mind: Do you use WMM?

Thanks. :) I never really thought about it that way, but I suppose I try to "go with the flow" of the music regardless of a rhythm.

I love the cool attitude that fills the opening sequence.
That's partly the music I must admit and the scene itself.

...it's punctuated really well with the zoom shot on Ath.
I love that zoom on Ath and I wanted to try to build tension using sustained shots.

BRILLIANT sword swing at 1:54. (Mirrored six seconds later by Ath) Had me grinning.
I'm so glad. It always made me smile when I watched it and I wanted a subtle parallel between them visually.

I mostly use WMM, but I downloaded a Ulead VideoStudio 9 trial this month. I just read your post about it's positives and negatives, which I agree with.

You may credit the music and scene for something, but the truth is that it's up to the person who's making the vid to capitalize on them and draw out that emotion. Seems like most of this stuff is pretty instinctive to you, which is a nice asset.

I've started using Ulead strictly to put effects on a WMM clip. It's nice to have the option of doing overlays or filters for a certain section of a vid, and then importing that section into WMM. But I wouldn't want to create a whole vid in Ulead.

Thanks. I tried to think of it as score to a certain extent.

I agree about Ulead, I don't see how anyone could make a whole vid in it, but it is good for interesting effects.
