Title: One (I Found A Reason)
Song: I Found A Reason - Cat Power (Cover of a Velvet Underground song from the "Loaded" LP)
Subject: Life. Episodic for One. Crews/Reese.
Notes: An episodic vid for One, largely focused on the fact that the episode revolves around finding Dani. This is the second Life vid I've done. It is also the second Life vid I've done that was supposed to be gen, and ended up being almost entirely Crews/Reese (really though with that ending, could you blame me?). I ended up using dialogue in this vid, I don't really do that, so I'd love to hear what you think on that. I was impressed by Reese's sound bites through out the episode, and delivered brilliantly by Shahi, so I had to use some of them.

Lyrics:
Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better than what came before
And you'd better come come, come come to me
Better come come, come come to me
Better run, run run, run run to me
Better come
Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better than what came before
And you'd better run run, run run to me
Better run, run run, run run to me
Better come, come come, come come to me
You'd better run


Concrit, and comments would be loved.

I think the dialogue snippets worked well, he is a good actor. What is Life about?

CITY OF EMBER?

1: I'm glad you think the dialogue worked well. I value your opinion on these type of things, so I'm happy you commented.

2: Damian Lewis? Yeah he's brilliant. He was in one of the Shakespeare ReTold's, the Much Ado About Nothing one, and he played Benedick, he was an absolute ass, and hilarious, and it always takes me a while to remember he and Charlie (his character from Life) are the same 'cause he's very convincing as both. Life is a cop show, where Crews was in prison for 12 years because he was framed, and he gets out and solves the weekly crime with his AWESOME partner Reese, and is also working on solving the greater mystery of why he was framed. It might sound rather formulaic, btu ti isn't, the writing is usually excellent, the photography is unusually good for an American show, and the one thing that really sticks out among cop shows is the relationship between Crews and Reese. Even though they're partners, of oppisotte gender, and earlier on he got on her nerves, there's none of the UST associated with that usual set up. They don't do the whole hand on the back intimacy thing that many tv UST couples do, in fact he touches her once, and her response is: "Are you touching me?" And he drops her arm like a hot potato, which is why their brushing of hands was so important. Half the audience doesn't even see any romantic thing to their relationship (though this past episode kind of finished that, although still it was just made clear that they loved each other, what sort of love that was unclear), and just CAN I PLEASE SHOW SOME TO YOU WHEN YOU COME IN CITY PLEASE!!!!!!!

3: City of Ember is done.

YES! YES YES YES!!!!! LOVED IT! GAAAH, SO BEAUTIFUL! I'm pretty sure I will never get tired of One vids, but seriously, this one was really well done. Perfect song choice, loved the voice clips, and I especially loved Charlie throwing his death punch right when Dani tells Roman, "He'll give you something else." And oooooh, how I got all goosebumpy during the hand-touch, loved how you edited that bit together. In short, this was awesome.

Glad you liked it! I'm so happy the hand touch worked because ahm THAT SCENE MAKES MY HEART EXPLODE, so I'm glad I used it well. And also thank you for saying you liked that particular voice/video clip pairing, because that was the one I was most nervous about for some reason. Wasn't her constant verbal belief in Crews epic, and just guh the shippiness of this ep has killed me dead.

They seemed to work fine, for me. Hope you like it when you do get to watch it. I'm afraid I did not include Tidwell's attempt to save Dani, even though I did like his "I know what a subway sounds like" thing.

don't worry, i've imagined that, and i'm fine with that too! (I'm working on something too ;P)

I cannot wait to actually see it!

Aw man, this is so gorgeous. And you're right, Reese's lines/delivery of them is awesome and so is the way you used them in this. They're also extremely clear! How'd you get them to be so clean?

Anyway I'm uber jealous, I've been wanting to vid Life again since the finale. XD Needs a song!

Again, awesome job with this! ♥

The clarity of the sound must just be luck on the release I got, 'cause I didn't edit it at all. I loved how calm she was, she was just awesome. I had no idea what song I was going to use, but I wanted to vid it, so I just put the iPod on shuffle and went through a bunch before I found one that worked. :D

I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for commenting.

The hand scene turns me to goo every time I see it. This was such a well done vid and I love it so much.

I know OMG the hands.

Thank you, I'm glad you liked the vid.

Loved this!!! So well done...and I could watch clips from One forever, lol. Great job!

Thank you. And yeah, this might have taken longer than necessary because I might have gotten caught up in actually watching what I was supposed to be editing. :D
