THE STORY

Jensen's just left his entire life behind in Chicago to prove to himself once and for all whether he's born to be a dancer. He really doesn't think so, but fellow dancer Jared has never been more sure of anything else. When Michael Jackson dies suddenly, leaving this whirlwind of a tour at a stand-still, Jensen, Jared, and the rest of the dancers struggle to make sense of the fact that all they just worked so hard for has just exhaled into a fading sunset.

The goal of any artist is to be able to celebrate passion, creativity, inspiration, and the relationships that get us through it all. Jensen's journey tells the story of Michael Jackson's influences, the impact he's had on everything that came after him, and how this elite group of modern hip hop dancers pulls it all together and makes it their own. --> STORY MASTERPOST

Made in benefit of the [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti charity auction for wonderfully generous [livejournal.com profile] counteragent who was crazy enough to bid on me, think up this idea, and hand it my way. I hope I've been able to do it justice! *crosses fingers*

[ETA (12am EST): Sorry, my internet has been a horrific nightmare today, I'm working on trying to figure out what happened with the corrupt zip, since it worked before I uploaded it. In the meantime, I put up an alternative download link, which worked on my end. But please let me know if there's a problem with that too. Sorry about the headaches!]

QUICK NOTES )

Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] smilla02 for offering to take a look at this early on, being so fabulous in listening to all my 'oh-so-long-and-rambly' emails, and giving vital feedback to help me steer this thing in the right direction!

Also thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dotfic whose words inspired the summary. To [livejournal.com profile] spnroundtable for their impeccably timed Tribute to the Women of SPN post. And to all the fic writers who over the years expanded these women's stories far past what the show ever gave us, enabling them to live on far beyond their initial exits.

Hope you all can enjoy! :)

Any and all comments are coveted, loved, and adored! XD

zimshan: (SPN - DEAD FROM THE PROFILE)
I’ve attempted to write out this post more times than I can count at this point. It’s kinda pathetic how this is now five days after the fact and I still feel like Bambi on ice about it all.

I am sure about one thing: This is precisely the kind of episode I’m glad to have LJ for. The flail and the frustrations alike. The collective work of everyone's reactions this week have been an experience within itself. I’m going to talk about this episode in reference to a number of other people’s reactions around fandom the last couple of days, because they’ve been vast and varied, and a number of them of different sentiments I agreed with. To me, it’s the only way I can succeed in fully capture the myriad of emotions I felt about this episode this week.

SPN - 5.10 - 'Abandon All Hope' - This time with coherency! Only five days late! Complete episode coverage this time, full of criticism and love and devastation [with link recs of fics and posts throughout fandom this week] )

And so I’m holding myself to this. This vid I started on the fly Thursday morning is TOTALLY getting finished before the end of winter hiatus. Stop laughing, I’M SERIOUS. Besides vidding kickass women source is totally therapeutic, even if it's totally depressing how little of it there is.

Any chance anyone might want to gab about tightening a vid storyboard structure this week? I’m totally fixated on this meta slant for it, but I think I’d benefit by talking it through with someone before I go any further with it than I already have. I’ve got only a very very rough first draft laid and a loose narrative structure at the moment, but I’ve got weeks of paring and tweeking and tightening ahead of me. I always hate this part. :/

Oh, man, there are no words for how fulfilling it is to finally finish a vid whose song has been staring at you on your ‘to vid’ play list for years...

For the record, I blame this all on the complete LACK of Obama vidding in the world. We've gotta do something about that.

In honor of Dr. King Day, and Obama's Inauguration Weekend, I give you...

I KNOW, I had NO business doing a vid this summer! But I had had my heart set on doing at least one SPN vid all spring and once I got this idea, somehow this thing just wouldn't leave me alone. So, months later, here's the final result:



'HOME'
Band/Song: ‘Home’ by Dishwalla
Character: Dean POV
Summary: The dynamics of Dean, Death, his family, and the job in Season Two
Vidder: [livejournal.com profile] zimshan (Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bellanut and [livejournal.com profile] deathisyourart for taking an early look at this!)
Episodes: Everything up to 2x22
Links/Size: Permanent DL Link (60 MB) | ALTERNATE DL Link (60 MB) | BAM Vid Vault (Streaming)
Notes: It's a bit silly but I sorta feel like this should come with a small warning or something. While this vid has a happy little name, it’s actually a pretty morbid concept. Surrounding Dean & his temptation from Death. Yes, I know. The things I spend my time on. But I actually had a ball working this one out. I tried out some new styles and when it's all said and done, I think I’m actually pretty happy with it, which is a first for me. So, I hope you all enjoy!

Please, feel free to leave feedback of any kind, good, bad, or in between. I'm really interested about the viewer's perspective on this one. So I mean it when I say any and all comments are completely loved and adored and totally appreciated!

Episodes: up to 2x22

zimshan: (VM - Lg/VM - Remember)
You know that VM promo that I posted the other day? Well, you can just forget about that version. Being the crazy person I am, the little quirks were just annoying me and since I had alittle bit of extra time yesterday, I went back in, ran around the rendering process to get all the clips "on", and fixed some title card and audio problems. Overall, everything has been sharpened up.

So, literally, chuck that old version out in the garbage! If you want to send it around to get your friends interested in the show, please, use this one. This was how the first one was intended to be.

‘Chasing The Storm’: A Veronica Mars Promo [REMASTERED]
Music: “Rock and a Hard Place” - Supreme Beings of Leisure | “Ashes” - Embrace
Episodes: Spoils EVERYTHING for Season One and Two
Links: YouTube Version | 11 MB AVI | BAM Stream
Notes: A focus on aspects of the show UPN and The CW have yet to promote. The dark and gritty noir. The terrific ensemble of characters. The tragedies which surround them. And the strength they find amidst the storm. (For more babbling, my original post is located HERE.)

Four days ago, I was in the worst pit of horrible VM ennui. Now, I think I have enough S3 spirit to market internationally.

Some of you probably recall me complaining about UPN and CW attempts at promos for Veronica Mars in the past?

Well, over the summer, my sis, probably sick of hearing me complain, called me out on it. “What the hell DO you want the promos to be like? I’d like to see you even try.” There it was. The challenge. So, weeks ago, I set out to try and make my own VM promo. I fooled around with it a bit, then my computer got shipped away. But about four days ago, I got my computer back. And finally, I could finish it.

‘Chasing The Storm’: A Veronica Mars Promo
Music: “Rock and a Hard Place” - Supreme Beings of Leisure | “Ashes” - Embrace
Episodes: Spoils EVERYTHING for Season One and Two
Links: Crappy YouTube version | YSI link (10 MB/AVI) | Sendspace link (10 MB/AVI) | Sendspace (15 MB/MPEG1 | Sendspace (45 MB/MPEG2)
Notes: Made for Watchveronicamars.net's VM Promo Contest. A focus on aspects of the show UPN and The CW have yet to promote. The dark and gritty noir. The terrific ensemble of characters. The tragedies which surround them. And the strength they find amidst the storm.

It was a comedy for the masses to finish this with my 'slow as a turtle' 224 MB RAM laptop but I figured if I didn’t finish it in time for the contest, it would never get done. And it drives me batshat that there’s this whole little section that refused to render correctly and is therefore VERY off. But you know what? I had SO MUCH DAMN FUN making this promo. So it doesn't really matter. Really! Best cure for VM ennui ever. Seriously, anyone feeling down about the show? Make a promo.

More babbling about the promo making... )
