New creative journal, oh yay! :D I'm posting my very first fanvid, a Doctor Who vid to the song "Freshman Year" by Everyday Sunday.



Fandom: Doctor Who Series One, "Rose" to "The Parting of the Ways"
Music: Everyday Sunday- Freshman Year
Disclaimer: This vid made for fun, not money or other profit. Doctor Who is owned by the BBC, and "Freshman Year" is owned by Everyday Sunday and possibly by Flicker Records.
Notes: I love this song. A lot. I have to blame it on wanting to make fanvids. :P

Download at Sendspace New Sendspace link New new link. ;)

Feedback is love, especially since this is my first fanvid. Ever. =)

I'm in the process of downloading, I'll toss you some feedback when I watch it.

So, I was scanning my flist, and I'm like "oh, another fanvid...wait...Everyday Sunday? I know who that is! Someone else listens to the same music I do?!" So I checked your user info, and you like a lot of cool bands, shows, etc, AND we're both in the christian_geek community. Mind if I friend you?

oooo, nope, sorry. I cleared out all the fanvids a while back when I came dangerously close to running out of space and Nero was having a fit so I couldn't burn stuff. :o(

Silly computer!

:( Your video is no longer available on SendSpace... Care to post again or give a link where else you might have it?

I promise to give feedback if I have the chance to see it. :)

Well, I'm lucky enough to have Adobe Premiere Elements, which is one of the best video editing programs. But if you don't have it, I'll tell you right now you're not going to want to buy this (mucho $), so I'd go with Windows Movie Maker if you're on a PC or iMovie if you're on a Mac. They both come with the computer.

First you need to have everything you need on your computer. If you want to make an R/Hr vid, then you'll need the movies on your computer. I recommend DVD Shrink (you're on Windows, right?) for this- it's free and super-easy to use. I can talk you through putting the DVDs on the computer if you use it- don't ever, ever, ever open someone else's fanvid in WMM and edit their clips out. Ever.

Once you do that, I started planning. I Googled all the lyrics and made a Word document with them- a line looked like:
Lyric: "You say you're tired of chasing the stars"
Episode: Boom Town
Scene: Rose running from the TARDIS
This helped 'cause I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Decide now what tone you want the vid to have- there's everything from one of the best fanvids I've seen, a serious one called Square One (which you should totally download even though you don't watch Farscape, I swear it's amazing), and what's called a crack!vid, like this very funny one by merscilla on YouTube. Once you've done that all you need to do is open everything in the program, and match the clip to the words! Good luck! :D

(Oh, and I'm planning to do another one over Winter Break. They take hours on end. :P)

Excellent song and clips choice on this video.
The file size threw me off when I went to download it. Would you be interested in the vid being in a smaller file size with relatively the same image quality?

Thanks!
Eep, that was the one thing I tried to fix about the vid. My computer's not a fan of making .avi, so in the end I gave up. Next time I think I have a few ideas about making it smaller, but since this one's not incredibly new I think I'll just leave it. But thank you! :D
