"Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking" - Snow Patrol (A Sylar/Gabriel Gray Heroes FanVid)

Grave Lying
Dedicated to canadian_turtle (late birthday gift *mwah*)

I actually haven't seen Ep 15 yet so this was all done up to and including ep 14. And still I kept thinking afterwards "Oh, I didn't put that in!" Anyways... I hope you guys enjoy.

This video is about Sylar (aka Gabriel Gray). Though I nicknamed it "the blender" because of how many times I had to layer in this song (I honestly didn't know it really was a challenge to make a vid to), it is in actual fact a portrait of a serial killer. Sylar is thirsty for power, he wants to be seen as special. He has a different way of viewing the world, slightly askew and distorted, with the self-imposed ability that he can "fix things". This video shows his origins, his battles, his skill and the way he is able to overcome the obstacles that he has faced.

wow. Wow. WOW!!!

First of all *mwah* back because this is so sweet and not to mention flippin' awesome.

And now on to the vid, which I have so far watched three times already (yayz!) because it's so awesome. You did an amazing job capturing his story from what we've so far seen in the show. The song title and lyrics are very fitting with specific scenes you chose and you really do him justice.

Quick overview while watching:

Beautiful quiet start, where he's near dead.

"Have the feeling there is something that I miss" featuring a scene from before he knnwos he's 'special'

0.56 minutes best combination scene & music!!

"dripping of my finger tips" Opening Jackie's skull, awesome!

"not afraid to die" him 'dying' when he falls of the school with Peter.

2.20m where the music gets loud and he kills Jackie? Brilliance.

"The blast is beautiful" NYC exploding, I would think that if it wouldn't kill him he'd def. watch how other people die and find the blast beautiful

Overal: A+++++++ So very awesome ^_^

Some other things I thought of while watching:

- OMG I totally forgot Mohinder actually saw Sylar killing! Do you remember what episode that was?

- I barely remember anything Sylar from before Zach because I wasn't rly into the character by then (I watched too many episodes in too short a time to be able to fully focus on all chars), but this vid helped me remember a lot of good stuff ^_^

- Also, do you remember the poll you had up oncre? What character's power(s) everyone wanted? I picked Sylar's aakjh;akga;kfa;akjsd!!! I think I even said back then I didn't necessarily liked the character but just his power, and now I like his char too! It's mean to be... (ahum so yeah, ignore that last part...)

Aww thanks hon *squishes* Now I have to go check the vid for those time stamps LOL

k done (A)

Yah I LOVED that part. It just worked so well. There were a lot of lyrical things which I actually had visuals for which was awesome. "Not afraid to die" I viewed more as a Peter thing, because he knew and he still went, and then I showed the scene where Sylar was almost dead too interestingly.

THAT... you know what? I realised doing this that I LOVE the way they shoot Heroes - there's so many sweeping camera angles and super zooms (like in that time frame) that it totally complimented the music and its just awesome. The blast *nods* worked really well cause I wasn't sure originally whether I could make it work, but it turned out great and like he was watching it happen outside the window :D

Thanks hon *hugz*

Um the Mohinder bit was from episode 8. I didn't realise until I was cutting it that we actually saw inside the taxi what happened, I just remembered the head-slamming, neck-snapping part. I think its about 3/4 of the way through.

Yup I do remember that. Crazy, huh? hehe

That is seriously a great vid! I loved it and I love Sylar :P
17th-Feb-2007 02:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad I made something that the Sylar fans can enjoy :D
17th-Feb-2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
Oooh, this was amazing. And I love Sylar!
18th-Feb-2007 05:14 am (UTC)
Thank you :D hehe good to know he has plenty of fans out there ;)

Aaah it still won't load for me, thats my third try today, the buffering grinds to a halt early into it... will try again later. Hmmfph...
17th-Feb-2007 08:35 pm (UTC)
Did you try instead of using Youtube to download it from any of the Megaupload links? Tis worth it *nods*
18th-Feb-2007 04:13 am (UTC)
Woah... Absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!!!! I loved it :D
Sylar is really becoming one of my favourite characters on the show, and this vid really captured everything that makes him fascinating. Great job!
18th-Feb-2007 05:13 am (UTC)
Thank you :D Yeah he really is becoming a staple to the show isn't he? It's no wonder Kring doesn't want to get rid of him.

Jules, what an awesome vid! Very bloody and action packed, I loved it! Can I confess I was hoping Mr. Muggles would bite Sylar when he picked him up?
18th-Feb-2007 07:34 am (UTC)
LOL but Sylar actually loves MR Muggles so that wouldn't be fair. Who would think a serial killer would have such fondness for pets?? *snickers*

Thanks hon *hugz* Glad u liked it
18th-Feb-2007 07:23 am (UTC)
Ah! This video is absolutely amazing! You're really talented at that!
18th-Feb-2007 07:34 am (UTC)
Aww thank you. That's so sweet of u to say *hugz* Thanks for watching and commenting.

Jules!!! I know I'm late to this party, but I've just seen your video and I'm really blown away...

I didn't think you could top the Petrellis fix you vid...but this is the best one you've done so far IMO

The song choice, was amazing...I don't even know wht the song is about, because almost every line of the lyrics, and the mood of it was Sylar, speaking in the first person. My favourite parts aside from the overall feel of it was the clock ticking, dripping finger matched with those scenes, and the slow motion lyrics for Sylar approaching Mrs Bennet, and the door slamming,and blast being matched with the bomb

I really like the threads you put in too, setting up with Peter as an arch enemy, yet similar with a weird close connection. The quest for Claire and the tussles with HRG, Sylat turning the tables, but I also loved listening to what he is saying, he can do anything, and yet he is weirdly detached from the rest of the world...the song helped there

You really are a true artist jules, I really loved it. I hope when Peter goes through his dark path at the end of season one, that you'd do me a Peter vid showing his journey, I would love that, and I never make requests, but I trust you with it

I will email you with a few questions about the challenge for the mood themes, but for a time frame, it will be after the show finishes this season, then we'll have tons of footage and time to do it...

Thanks hon! *hugz* I don't ever try to top myself, I just try to bring new elements to a vid everytime I do one. I like to challenge myself, and I don't like being stuck doing the same thing over and over again because not only would I bore myself but other ppl as well (and they'd probably think I had limited capabilities - I wouldn't like to hear "it's all the same".)

It gave an interesting first person view of Sylar, didn't it? And I'm glad I was able to cross-reference everything over a few characters - not only was Sylar thinking he could do anything to anyone, but capturing that look from HRG when he had Sylar caged - the moment he believed he could do anything to Sylar. Originally the "you can't leave" I was going to show the control Sylar exhibited over other ppl, but in the end I went with another parrallel where he instead was trapped and unable to get out. And "another soldier not afraid to die" I put in because Peter knew he was going to die, yet he still went on his mission, but turtle saw a Sylar angle in that as well. So it's interesting to see that not only were the songs and clips layered, but the story and characters behind it as well.

Um I would do a Peter vid but the trouble is finding the right song - both lyrically and mood wise its a challenge. I do however hope that by the end of the season something will generate (hell, someone might even release something I've never heard of that suits) and I can get something done. Anyway, the rate I'm going with my ideas of vidding characters and pairings, sure enough I'll get around to him by then ;) LOL And being that Peter is so high on my favourite characters list, it's likely he won't leave me alone. Plus the very fact u asked will have Milo sitting in the back of my mind going "find me". So, all in all, I can't promise anything but I'll try. :) Besides, I feel like I gotta repay you for the valentines gifts. :$

Wow. That was wonderful! You did an excellent job of showing what this character is about. The song choice was excellent. It has a sort of creepy wonder to it-- "I can do most anything"
Awesome :)

And, btw, I love this description of Sylar:
it is in actual fact a portrait of a serial killer. Sylar is thirsty for power, he wants to be seen as special. He has a different way of viewing the world, slightly askew and distorted, with the self-imposed ability that he can "fix things".

Thank you! haha yeah he's a bit like that isn't he? You could just see it ticking away through his mind in the last episode.

And thank you. I'm glad you appreciate my views on it all ;)

This is incredible! Snow Patrol is my favorite band, and this is one of my favorite songs by them. Your editing is amazing - I love how you match the scenes to the lyrics. This seriously is Sylar's theme song. This has got to be one of my favorite fanvids of all time - thank you so much for sharing. ♥
22nd-Feb-2007 10:21 am (UTC)
Thanks so much. I'm glad you liked it so much. And I constantly fall in love with that band even when I don't know its them - they're awesome. The song rocks *nods* and yeah I agree, totally a Sylar theme song.
