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?

sholio: sun on winter trees (Sanctuary-Helen)
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?

Artist: Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
Fandom: Sanctuary
Summary: Kate Freelander. Clips through 3x16.

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.

sholio: sun on winter trees (Art-red blue leaves)
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.
