sholio: Made by <lj user=foxglove_icons> (Tea)
I'm cleaning up and backing up the hard drive on my main working computer today (it's a laptop, so this is always a ritual before taking it on a trip with me) and I'm contemplating my ever-growing folder of completed music videos. I tend to save everything, but I'm starting to wonder about the wisdom of taking up an ever-growing corner of my hard drive with old files for vids I completed years ago. I make my vids in iMovie, and the files are pretty large (generally 3-5 Gb each), plus all the clips that I saved too.

To toss or not to toss? The only reason I can think of for keeping them is that it would enable me to go back later and save/export them in a different format if I wanted to. It would also make it easier to remaster them with better footage, should I ever want to do that, but at this point the only ones that I have any vague desire to remaster are the really old ones, which I did in Premiere, and don't still have the files for anyway.

I'm reluctant to throw them away, and yet, the finished & exported versions are the important thing (the final MP4, WMVs, etc), and I'm definitely keeping those.

Thoughts?

I started making this for [personal profile] tielan for fandom_stocking last year, but I got busy with other things and it kinda fizzled. On the other hand, it means that when I finally got around to finishing it, I had more episodes to take clips from, right?

sholio: Text: "Age shall not weary her, nor custom stale her infinite squee" (Infinite Squee)
Well, this was ridiculously fun to make. I'm sure I missed a ton of shows that have had story arcs like this, but I was able to easily fill up a whole video just from the ones that came to mind off the top of my head. It helps that this is a plot I don't ever seem to get tired of ...

Title: Good Guys Being Bad
Song: Kiss With a Fist
Artist: Florence and the Machine
Clips from: Buffy, Fringe, Highlander, Invisible Man, Sanctuary, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG1, Supernatural
Summary: Characters trying to kill their friends, going darkside, turning out to be evil doubles and so forth.
Warning: It's a happy bouncy song about domestic abuse, which pretty much sums up the whole video.

Heh, I suppose this has become one of those over-vidded songs, but never yet by ME, and it was just so Helen. One of the things that appeals to me most about Helen's character is that even after 150+ years, she's still so openly excited by the world, so passionate about seeing new things and going new places. Life is an adventure for her, as much today as a century ago, and I wanted to celebrate that with this vid.

... okay, I think I'm gonna go sign up for this too: Three Space Shows and a Movie mini-ficathon. 500 words of gen fic for SGA, SG1, or ST (TOS/AOS), by late September? I can do that! :D

Sigh. I think I have a problem.

Anyway! Now that I've posted my latest songvid, I already know the next one I want to make! In the comments to one of my Avatar posts, [personal profile] jalendavi_lady mentioned "pretty boys playing with fire" as a common theme between FMA and A:TLA, and I went "OOOOH" because that just begs to be a multifandom vid. I have the perfect song for it, and I can think right off the top of my head of three shows that would fit perfectly - FMA (Roy), A:TLA (Zuko/Azula/Iroh/Ozai), and One Piece (Ace).

So here are my questions for you, my f'list/circle:

- What other anime or animated series/movie can you think of that has character(s) with fire powers? I can use energy-based chi attacks for filler clips, if I need to, but I'd really like as much actual fire as possible. I can think of a few "maybes", but in these cases I've only seen a little of the show and I can't remember specifically if it fits what I'm looking for - I seem to remember that Sasuke on Naruto has fire attacks, and also, the red-haired girl in the main triad on Rayearth. But I don't remember either show very well. Any suggestions are welcome!

- One Piece people! What are some specific OP episodes that I should look at for Ace doing his bursting-into-flames thing, or episodes that have some kickass Ace fight sequences? For the vid in general, I'd like to avoid majorly spoilery stuff and just stick to fun, flying-around-and-flaming scenes. And can you help me find good-quality, sub-free raws for source footage? I can get DVDs from Netflix, but it looks like they've only got it up to Skypeia. You can PM or email me if you don't want to post links.
