What's wrong with a little destruction?

Put on your red shoes and dance the blues (QaF ensemble vid)

I've finished another vid! I don't know how I feel about it. I think I've watched it so many times before deciding to post it, that I'm sick of it already, LOL!

I did it, mainly, for fun, because I love the song, and also as a way for me to try out this new program I have. I wasn't able to make the video from scratch with the new software because it's a little too advanced for me, so what I ended up doing was using the new software as sort of a post production tool. I must admit I went a litte crazy with the effects. Also, it's not perfect. I watched it just now and I noticed a couple of things... but I'd already uploaded it, so I guess there's no turning back now (keep in mind I'm on dial-up... EEK!).

If you decide to download it, after all these warnings, lol, I'd really like to know your honest opinion about it. As I said, I'm trying out this new thing and I'd like to know which effects work, which suck, etc... There is, however, a bit of the vid that I'm very proud of. I was like, "whoa, I did THAT?!?". LOL!

Let's Dance by David Bowie (right click + save target as, please)
Rating: R
Pairings: All (but like a good B/J girl, they are front and center, of course)
Clips are from seasons 1-3.
Size: More or less 17 MB
For better results, I'd recommend to watch at a smaller size, rather than full screen ( 400 x 300 works pretty well).

Also, I know I've asked for song recs and believe me, I am working on some of those. I have like 3 vids in the works right now. I can't stop! The next one I'll post will probably be to the song "Try" by Nelly Furtado, suggested by aurora_84. :)

I feel like I am stalking you!!! I must be right behind you reading the flist. Junie, I'm downloading too.

I know you are stalking her. Stop. That's my job. :P

Aw! ♥ you guys!


Junie--
I liked that a lot. I don't know HOW you got everybody dancing to the beat through that entire vid--that is amazing. Blew my mind. I'm not one to understand the effects you guys use, so you'll have to forgive me for that. This is what I liked:

the whole bright, colorful, sunbursty thing, especially with that dressed up drag queen or whatever toward the end--that was AMAZING

I smiled through the whole vid.

I loved the "running" sequences--especially through the hospital. Whoa. Just whoa.

I loved the 308 transition inside the office. That was COOL.

I loved that the cha cha part was at the end. The last thing you saw, what you remembered.

I loved that we actually saw Ted in a dancing video!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok, so I really liked it! v.v. good! way fun! woohoo!

the whole bright, colorful, sunbursty thing, especially with that dressed up drag queen or whatever toward the end--that was AMAZING

Yay!!! That was the bit I was referring to as the part I was proud of. So glad you liked it too!

I smiled through the whole vid.

Aww! That's great.

I loved that we actually saw Ted in a dancing video!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just HAD to put that scene in somewhere! He reminds me of the robot dance, for some reason. :p

ok, so I really liked it! v.v. good! way fun! woohoo!

Thanks Plum!!! Great feedback, as usual!

omg wheeeeeee! Love that song! Love ensemble vids! Love YOU!! You included SOOOO many of my favorite scenes, it's like it's for ME!!! hehe. *adores* thanks for sharing Junie darling, wonderful job!! ♥

Isn't it a great song? Never fails to make me want to put on some red shoes and get down... :p

You included SOOOO many of my favorite scenes, it's like it's for ME!!!

Cool! I just love it when they dance. The only one I couldn't work in there was from episode 103, where Emmett dances out of the shot at the end. That's like my FAVORITE dance scene ever. But since Michael was also in the shot, looking sad, it didn't fit the mood of the vid.

Love you too, sweetheart! Thanks so much for watching!!! ♥

WOW! I love the effects! I must know what program you used. For some reason I liked the Mel and Linds parts the most. You did an excellent job with the timing. I also love this song, hadn't heard it in a while. My only criticism (and this is really just a pet-peeve of mine): darkness. I know that I tend to vid at night, so I lighten almost everything, because when I watch it the next morning with more light than just the pc screen I can't see it. Excellent job Junie!! Tell me what program or I will begin stalking you too!!! Wait...you might like that! *smooches*

The wedding? Yeah, that looked so purty!

You did an excellent job with the timing.

Thanks! Though I really didn't give it that much thought. It sort of happened, LOL!

I undertstand. Yeah, that was me abusing the contrast effect. I'll keep that in mind next time! I appreciate the con crit. :D

Excellent job Junie!! Tell me what program or I will begin stalking you too!!!

Thanks KT!!! I'll e-mail you about the program.

Wait...you might like that! *smooches*

You know me so well...

Downloading, can't wait to see it! :)

:hyper: :D

I love your retarded-clap Emmett icon!

Loved it, hon. The music was perfect, and it is amazing how they all seem to be dancing to that particular song! I also loved the colors. *bows to your powers of creativity*

Thanks, glad you like. I got it from qaficons. I forgot to credit though, so I need to find out who made it.

It's my most colorful vid, for sure! Thanks so much, Dawn!!!

That was great. I really liked the colors, and the light effects. Some parts that stood out that I really liked.
The 308 office sex part was perfectly placed. They seemed to glow in it.
YAY! for dancing Deb and Vic! That was such a fun scene.
The drag queen part was amazing. I loved the colors. It was very striking.
I liked how Lindsey seemed to glow at the end of the wedding part.
Of course, the Cha Cha dance, because I love that scene. It always makes me happy to see it.

The only part I didn't really like, was the Brian/Mikey part with their heads in the glowing ball thing. It was a little long, and it seemed to take away from the pace of the rest of the vid. Then again, it could be just my bias toward Justin/Brian and not Mikey/Brian.

I thought it was a great vid, and I can't wait to see what you do with these effects when you get more practice. I am curious about which part you were most proud of.

YAY! for dancing Deb and Vic! That was such a fun scene.

I liked that one a lot too. I loved Vic!!!

I liked how Lindsey seemed to glow at the end of the wedding part.

Me too! I'm going to be using that "glow" effect a LOT! :p

I agree with you on the length. I was a little lazy and couldn't really think of more dance scenes, LOL! Thanks for pointing that out. :)

Thank you so much!!! It means a lot to me that people take time to download and watch my work, and tell me their thoughts about it.

I am curious about which part you were most proud of.

It was the one with the glowing drag queen, actually, because of how cool the effects looked and the fact that the dance seemed to go perfectly with that part of the song (the African-sounding drums).

I thought that might be the part you were most proud of. It was such a great part. It turned out very impressive.

it's very cool! *loves it*

Mwahahahahahaaa.... I knew that David Bowie would get you!

Thanks Anna!!! Glad you liked.

Yay, that was fun!
I adore Bowie and the song was so cool, I mean, there are so many dancing scenes in QaF and I like themed vids. The effects were cool and not overdone, I liked the intro for example and also the aspect on making in an ensemble vid, very nice.
:D

If you really want to hear about any things I didn't like, guess it would be my constant pet peeve aka wrong aspect ratio. I have no idea about vidding at all and no clue about the programme you use, but it looks stretched imho.

Other than that, well done!

I think you're right, but gosh... I can't really fix that. :( The problem is on the clips I used, which I encoded when I was still a newbie on vid making. I guess there was a setting for the aspect ratio that I didn't know about. But that was literally weeks of work, encoding all the episodes... eek! I'll try to find some way to maybe make that less noticeable the next time.

Thanks again for taking the time to d/l and watch, Ani. :)

I know talk about taking forever to get back to you, however due to crappy home conection I wanted to get to work to DL it. Really liked it, loved the effects especially all the babylon stuff. Not bad at all my dear :)

Thanks so much, dear carr0ts!!! Glad you liked it. :)

It's great!!

I see that you're playing around with the softening-lens effect? And the flash at the centre-point of each frame? *pardon the layman's term*


Not sure of *what* I did, exactly, LOL! But, thanks!

Are you still asking for song recs?

Yes, I am!



(Deleted comment)
God, I love that song! However, there's a vid to it already. Very good, by the way. I'll send you a link if you want. :)

(Deleted comment)
Ok! Will do as soon as possible. :)

Ugh. :( The site where it used to be apparently no longer exists. I have it saved somewhere, so I could e-mail it or YSI it to you. Let me know which you prefer.

(Deleted comment)
No problem. I sent a YouSendIt link to that address. Please let me know if you got it.

(Deleted comment)
No problem, sweetie!

Yes, I enjoyed it a lot too!

Don't know if you have seen them already, but you should also checkout the vids from this site. They're pretty amazing, when it comes to the technical aspects.

Dling...

BTW, LOVED YOUR OTHER CLIPS... especially "Come what may" <3

Gracias!!! Hope you enjoy this one, too!

Oooooooooooh, color me IMPRESSED! First of all, I LOVE this song bunches, so of course I'm going to love any vid to it. But I love how you got shots of EVERYONE dancing, not just B/J but even Vic and Deb! Plus the other versions of "dancing" too -- the "I want you safe" scene pops to mind first, cause... guh.

So good, junie! Now give us your next one!

Yay, you watched it, Lucie!!! Thanks for your comments. I'm so glad you liked it!

A very creative, colorful vid with interesting special effects. I love ensemble vids and this one is great fun! Everyone is so happy and having a good time, it made me smile from start to finish. It would have been nice to have seen dancing Gus somewhere but otherwise, perfect.

Thank you very much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it and it made you smile. :)

I'm just sorry I couldn't find any clips of dancing Gus! Are there any out there that I don't know of?

AAAAAAAmazing! Really, fantastic! Seeing everyone so happy, makes me really happy. And I cannot believe I'm saying this, but it was nice to see a vid with stuff other than sex. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE a good sex vid, but this was just really Sunday night refreshing.

blah blah blah, I've spent a lot of time alone this weekend, it's showing in my rambles. Sorry to subject...

Thank you so much!

Don't apologize, you made me laugh. :D
