New vid: Sorrow - Steve/Bucky

My premiering vid from Escapade:

Sorrow
Artist: The National
Fandom: Captain America movies
I don't wanna get over you.



A HQ download available at my vids site here.
On AO3 with lyrics and on Tumblr. Reblogs and shares are always welcome!


I've wanted to make this pretty much since the movie came out but I've been beating my head against a brick wall trying to make a different vid that won't come together. Pretty soon I think people will pay me to stop making Captain America vids, I have so many song ideas. But in the meantime, there's this.

I should note that some spots of the vid are significantly different than the one I showed at the con and that is on the DVD. I wasn't happy with that version and made some changes later--sorry for the inconvenience.

ETA a couple things: I really regret saying anything about the person calling it cheesy and poorly edited--I just thought that was hilarious in a snickery sort of way, and I didn't mean for everyone to feel bad for me, so I'm sorry about that. Honestly I was just poking fun at it as much as anything. And 2, someone informed me that trelkez made a Cap 1 vid to Sorrow a few years back. I didn't know this, and this developed entirely independently of that.

Someone in vid review called it cheesy

The other twenty or so people in vid review all said it was awesome, so be fair. :)

I know, my friends were very valiant and rushed to defend my honor! :-D

Honestly, I just laughed my ass off inside--I tried really, really hard not to laugh out loud. I mean, you can call it cheesy, whatever, but I learned editing from Sandy and I will brook no criticism of the things she taught me. But I figure full disclosure--who knows? Maybe more people WILL find it cheesy too (and in total fairness, she said despite the cheesiness it had feels, so).

I assume you got home okay and everything's all right?

I loved this! It was very emotionally engaging and poignant...not 'cheesy' at all.

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Poignant was definitely the mood I was in when I made it. ;-)

Well, I liked it! :)

I don't even know about it being cheesy. Possibly edging up to melodramatic in the sense that it's big emotion?
I guess cheese is always a bit self-aware to me, if that makes sense, and this didn't have that feeling at all--in a good way.

As for editing, I can't agree with that other person's assessment on that, either. I thought you had a lot of excellent, subtle cutting going on here that suited the melancholy of the song. Sharper or faster cuts wouldn't fit with it at all.

I probably should not have said anything about the comment, I just thought it was so hilarious to warn people for cheese. ;-)

Rache was explaining to me that a lot of people, especially the ironic hipster gen types, equate any honest emotion with cheese, so…shrug. Most people seemed to get that and enjoyed the feels! But the song is big emotions, and Steve is definitely a guy with pretty big emotions, especially after losing Bucky. It's definitely a vid about grief and loss and depression, so yeah. I'm really glad that it worked for you and you liked it!

I had kinda thought that was the case with that review, actually. And I tend to get a little irritated with ironic hipsterism...just a little...
I have just enough film and media studies background to get myself in trouble in these sorts of discussions! ;)

Honestly, my Steve and Bucky feels are sort of out of control, so I would have been dissatisfied with anything that wasn't all out, you know?
