Okay, so after 2.5 years, I'm vidding again! Well, I made one vid. It's the first I made in Final Cut Pro! I switched to a Mac in 2007, but then life got in the way, and I finally got around to it. Excuses, excuses. :)


It's a lot to put us through.

Song: Fighting in a Sack
Artist: The Shins
Source: Chuck
Characters: Ensemble
Range: All of Season 1

I thank [livejournal.com profile] fan_eunice for patiently answering my Mac-vidding questions; [livejournal.com profile] pipsqueaky, [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny, and [livejournal.com profile] renenet, for making sure this thing doesn't suck and I can still vid OMG; and [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain, for general support and squishiness.


Fighting in a Sack - The Shins

Just last night I woke from some unconscionable dream
Had it nailed to my forehead again
To keep this boat afloat
There are things you can't afford to know
So I save all my breath for the sails

But you'll find those lingering voices
Are just your ego's attempt to make it all clean and nice
And make a moron out of you
Walking a bridge on weakening cables
Huddled up in fear and hate because we know our fate
And it's a lot to put us through

Most ideas turn to dust
As there are few in which we can all trust
Haven't you noticed I've been shedding all of mine?
So let's abandon that track
And leave our fathers fighting in a sack
'Cause we're way too wise-assed for that

You might find some fools at your doorstep
Hustling the latest changes to the book that's the strangest
In an attempt to multiply
Marionettes on weakening cables
Huddled up with fear and hate because they know their fate
And it's a lot to put them through

We've taken on a climb
And it's long enough to put the best of us on our backs
Walking up a slide
And there are those we know who'd have us five miles off the track

[Bridge]

You'll find those lingering voices
Are just your ego's attempt to make it all clean and nice
And make a moron out of you
Crossing a bridge on weakening cables
Huddled up with fear and hate because we know our fate
And it's a lot to put us through



Enjoy, and feedback is greatly appreciated.

This is absolutely charming! Great character study, spanning such a range of emotions and experiences.

I love the colors and especially the timing, how things don't happen on the lyrics but in the pauses.

I know nothing about these people but the vid is just delightful.

I *heart* this so much! :D The laser on his forehead and the kiss and the car seat flying down the road and the *dancing*--they just keep killing me, every time I watch it. *g* And in a more general sense--this vid makes it clear to me just how much I've missed watching your sense of pacing and timing. (Hint: NEED MORE. \o/ :D)
