New Justified vid: Lost Cause

It's no secret that I love Justified more than a little bit. I frequently believe they somehow read my mind and made a show just for me, and Raylan Givens makes me so very happy. When I am in love, I have to make vids.

This one has a somewhat unusual POV in that it's Raylan looking at himself from others' eyes. Beck's album Sea Change has always really spoken to me; I liked the melancholy that infuses the entire album, since it's based on a breakup, and it matches the underlying melancholy I see in the series that I love so much.

Lost Cause
Fandom: Justified
Artist: Beck
File: QT Divx avi, 34MB
Raylan Givens can't really go home again.

Streaming (I don't like how grainy some of the lightened scenes are here, but it is what it is) is here





Thanks for the viewing help, [personal profile] mackiemesser, [profile] slavelabour, and especially [personal profile] killabeez!

I am SO GLAD you liked it -- you're my Justified sistah, and I think if it hadn't worked for you, that would have been deadly.

Oooh! It feels a lot tighter in presentation, and I think the changes you made bring the POV out more. Very cool.

Beautiful! Even without your explanation the POV angle-of-difference was evident and much enjoyed. This show is a bite of a pie a few hundred miles from me and I recognize the *feel* of the towns and the people. Kentucky is a lot more polite than Illinois but it's also more mannerisms and propriety which add a lot more layers to the mix. That's why, in addition to so many other things, that I adore this show. And you've caught that, yessiree!

ps...are you going to Escapade this year? Please say you are!

pps...I need to add in a Justified icon, just because it's needed.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it - it's always most wonderful when friends and fans who share your love of a show like your work in it.

I think I can go to Escapade... I still haven't registered, but I guess I should do that soon. It's a bit more than I think I can swing, but since I didn't go to VVC this year, I think if I don't go somewhere soon, I will wither.

Very nice. This is the best video/song combo in a while. Worthy of presentation at Vividcon in my totally non-vidder opinion. Jay

Thank you! The way things are going, this might be the only vid I make for a while. ;-)

I've only seen the pilot ep so far, but I love the vid!

Oh, you have SO MUCH to look forward to! It's totally worth it, and I can only hope I did the series a tiny bit of justice.

Wow, this is a beautiful vid. I love how well you made the movement of the show fit the feel of the song. I mean, damn, Timothy Olyphant walks just like Beck sings.

And god, Raylan's relationships with other people! The melancholy is perfect, without being too bleak.

Oh, thank you so much. I really love that -- Timothy Olyphant walks just like Beck sings. That is soooooo awesome. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Holy cow that was gorgeous. I love how you kick us off with such atmosphere right away, and you keep it up throughout. I love the bit about the people he 'used to know' (I think that was the lyric) and that ending! Wonderful vid. Made me excited for season 2. :)

Yay! Thank you so much, honey. It means so much to me that you enjoyed, you have no idea. Now I'm eager to find a gun-fightin' song for the flip side of the story. ;-)
