New vid - Flashpoint

I have so much to do that I can't even think straight. And no real time to do it in. I like being involved with this writing group I joined, but my god, it's adding to my stress load to review five long manuscripts for each meeting on top of all the other stuff I have to do.

Anyway. I've had a couple of requests from people who've seen this vid to get copies they can watch, so I've just gone ahead and decided to post it now rather than wait for Escapade. It's my premiering vid there, but fortunately we don't have any big regs about premieres. It was originally going to be a wee ickle vidlet for brynnmck, who picked my offering in a fannish gift exchange, but when she said she wanted a Flashpoint vid and sent me this song by the Headstones, I realized this needed to become my con entry, because I love me some Flashpoint and the song has great energy and it's a TEAM vid and also an Ed vid and also I have a teeny bit of Greg/Ed in there just because I'm me. In case you don't know Brynn, she is the world's biggest Hugh Dillon fan, and Hugh is the maestro of the Headstones and plays Ed in Flashpoint. It is a perfect storm of Hughness come together in one vid package.

I don't have a streaming vid to put here. I can't add any more vid files on my Imeem site, and so I'm thinking of possibly opening a new one under a different name, or whatever, but I can't find anything I like that isn't really harsh on its TOS, such as Vimeo. OK, I'm trying out viddler, so there's an embedded video behind the cut tag.

Come On
Artist: The Headstones
Fandom: Flashpoint
File: 24MB QT Divx avi
Right now is the only moment that counts.

My huge, profound, and endless thanks to killabeez, who helped me figure out how to get these odd-sized avi files to work and guided me step by step (with graphics!) through the process, and who is the most awesome and generous person ever. And Brynn, because she is also insanely awesome and generous and helped me get hold of the FP files in the first place. I <3 fans.

I can't believe this, I never actually responded to this comment... gar. But yes, you DO wear the cool pants, you are the coolpantsiest of the coolpants. I'm tellin' ya.

The vid went over really well at the con, and I have a feeling that as the days go on and there's more linkage and stuff, you are going to be inundated with folks getting hit by Hugh flu. Totally.

I can't believe I forgot to reply to comments, and I'm very ashamed, but I did want to say THANK YOU and I am so happy that people like it!! Vidding does require a lot of patience, for sure, but it's so worth it when people enjoy the work!

Wow! This is awesome. I'm going to have to watch this about half a dozen times to catch all the nuances, but even on first viewing I'm all heart-twisty and thrilled. Thank you for making and sharing it!

This vid is a thing of beauty. I adore Flashpoint, Hugh Dillon and The Headstones, and you've managed to capture the essence of all of 'em. And the whole Flashpoint team. (Off to search for a Flashpoint icon.)

You know, if I've done anything to be proud of, it's make the Hugh girls happy, and that's enough for me! I just loved the energy of this song and I think it works so well for the show. I'm so glad you liked it, and so sorry that it took me so freakin' long to reply.

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!! THIS IS INCREDIBLE!! *flails lots and lots*

I have nothing coherent to say except that while I was watching I thought, "Hugh would love this SO MUCH! Heeeeee!"

I expect I'll rewatch it often. Thank you!

Thank you so much!!! Making the Hugh girls happy has been the biggest joy of working on this, I swear. ANd I'm sorry for the long delay in my replay, for some reason, I just totally spaced that I hadn't responded.

Oh my, that's good. Really, really good. I love the way it balances fast-paced action, intensity, and moments of connection/release.

Thank you so much! I really appreciate you letting me know what you thought, and I'm so sorry it took me so long to respond. I would slap myself upside the head if I thought it would help me.

I really enjoyed this! I love the way you used the action scenes (the bit with the one guy falling in through the window made me especially gleeful with the way the music worked there) and yet also got in all of these underlying emotional moments. Such a great team-y vid and totally happy-making!

Darl, I am so sorry it's taken me FO-rever to replay, but thank you thank you thank you. I am so glad you enjoyed it. It is totally teamy and I just love the show for giving me that. (Well, okay, among other things, including Enrico and HUGH because OMG Ed and Greg!)

Hey, look how long it's taken ME to realize I never freaking replied to any of the comments, and get my butt back here to do so! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I don't know what it is, but I just love this show and the TEAM, go TEAM!
