New vid from Club Vivid: Dangerous

It was totally an accident of fate that both my vids this year were Stucky vids, I swear. Sorry for the relentless tide of Steve/Bucky visuals.

I'll have download info when I return. On AO3 | on Tumblr

Thanks to destina for the beta. Feedback & reblogs are adored!

Whoa, I did NOT expect such a fun peppy song to form the basis of a vid that gave me SO MANY FEELINGS. That was totally amazing.

What were your thoughts about how CW footage and plot as you were doing the vid, out of curiosity? If you'd rather not comment on your own vids, that's totally cool, I understand,

Heeeee! It was so strange--I fell in love with the original version of the song, which has some verses that are missing from the remix, and it just screamed Steve and Bucky to me. Now when I listen to it, it's SO SLOW. I was afraid the dance mix version might mitigate the feels, but it all worked out in the end.

You know, it was so weird, the CW stuff--Marvel was, at the time I was feverishly working against the deadline of end of April, releasing a new TV spot every day, with one tiny new clip, and I was going mad trying to both download all of them and not completely end up hating the movie before I even saw it (which I did, sort of, anyway, well, not hate exactly, but I didn't much like it). They oversaturated things really grotesquely, and I'm convinced that played a small part in the movie disappearing from theatres two months before Winter Soldier did--I think people just didn't feel compelled to go again, because of both the story and because they were probably sick to death of it after they finally saw it. I was glad that they released a couple of the longer clips, like Bucky fighting everyone, that was kind of a gift for that middle section, but it all definitely had a cumulative effect of making me feel like I'd seen the movie, when once I saw it, I realized my impression of what the story was was sort of wrong.

But I honestly don't think I could have made this vid with only the WS footage (and TFA). There just wasn't enough to support the "dangerous" text, so the two trailiers and the SuperBowl spot and the other TV spots, plus those extended clips, were what enabled me to make the vid at all.

Thanks so much for explaining! That's really interesting. I agree that what I saw in the movie was not what I expected and the media promotion was too much lol - you couldn't buy groceries without seeing Tony and Steve on half the products.

The vid was so beautifully done though, and just made me think of all the ways their love is amazing but yes, dangerous, and I know I'm being obvious but it made me feel so much for them.

Oooooh!! I'm terrible at commenting about vids, so: I really, really like this.
Aug. 18th, 2016 09:26 pm (UTC)
Yay! Honestly, that's a great comment!

Honestly, I don't think I will ever get tired of these vids... :D

It really does speak to the strength of the movies & characters when you can keep seeing new ways to explore their stories--and it shows how good you are at finding those threads and showing them to us.

They really are my vidding dream come true, even though their source, compared to most other things I vid, is so incredibly limited. I'm really glad you're not tired of them, and that you enjoyed this one!!

They have everything! Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, True Love, miracles....

OK, maybe not the fencing.

Great video! Excellent timing and a catchy tune I'd somehow never heard before. You rock!

The original that I fell in love with now seems sooo slow compared to the remix, but I still love them both. I'm just so happy that you enjoyed these! I appreciate your comments so, so much!

Right after watching the video I went and downloaded all the versions of the song I could find and have been listening to them on loop lol.
Totally helped break my writer's block on a short story I've been working on- so thanks again ; )
