Welcome to the deep, dark & crazy world that is my imagination
Mitchell/Annie "Afraid" (A Being Human fanvid)

Grave Lying
Okay, finally, only took me a whole night for rendering and uploading. Thank heavens for my vidding program's "upload to Youtube" feature working because the 3 times I tried to make this an avi file it did not want to work (& do not know why, my Jeffster vid rendered as an avi fine).

So I was adamant about doing several a Being Human fanvid and I had almost a whole soundtrack of songs to choose from, but this little gem from havens's brilliant fanmix struck the mightiest chord and voila - a Mitchell/Annie fanvid detailing their friendship & relationship. I did initially have a different idea of how I was going to approach this one, but looks like my own style remained, although I got to play with colour curves this time which made for some interesting (and sometimes helpful considering how dark the show became) effects, so I have at least retained that "something different each vid" approach. ALSO total kudos to the directors of the show - I've never been able to work with imagery so easily since the early days of Heroes.

GORGEOUS vid! The song is so perfect for them and I love the clips you used and your editing choices. Slow songs can be harder to vid, in some ways, than songs with a faster pace, and you've done a beautiful job here.

Do you have a downloadable file? I'd love to keep this one...

Thank you hon. The song just completely made sense, didn't it? Totally appreciate your comments coming from such a prolific vidder ;)

Still can't get it to avi (although the size was getting huge anyway), but I managed to convert it to an MPEG file (as the wmv one just didn't pick up on the quality). Here you go:

What a beautiful vid, the song, the editing---everything. You captured their relationship perfectly. Awesome job! <3

This video is just gorgeous. Perfect song. But my gosh, when you put them all together, I can't get over how many sad moments there are!!!!!! And that's just Annie & Mitchell! Let alone George & Nina and all the extras!

LOL I know, right? Streaming it all together I was like "OMG... how many times can these guys HUG one another? They can't keep their hands off each other!" haha. Although I know it's spread across a few seasons. And to pick up on quirky little things I hadn't noticed before (not to mention re-editing scenes so the story played out completely differently to what was in the show) was quite fun.

You're right, totally, that was another thing I thought of two - it's only just TWO characters from the cast in this vid, and yet so much has gone on across all 4 of them. They've all had a great wealth of problems to deal with and yet their friendship holds together & they still manage to be chirpy (most of the time). I admire that. This is such an incredible show!

Gah, I've been meaning to watch this (one of those times I got the notif on my Blackberry where I couldn't watch it and then forgot to open it while on a computer), but yeah, sorry I'm so late but this is brilliant! <333 Very beautiful and well-edited to match the song, which is a great fit for these two! :) Which program do you use again? You are a great vidder! And I agree, the imagery is beautiful on this show...

I just finished a M/A fanmix myself...I want to do a fanvid too, but need to figure out if WMM will let me...*sigh*

Hey! No problemo. It's only taken me forever to comment back... so can completely understand!

Thanks so much for the comments (& compliments), I'm glad you liked it. The song just fit them SO perfectly, didn't it? So glad when I find something that really connects.

I've been an avid user of Sony Vegas for a while now, but I finally managed to get version 10 and this was the 2nd vid I did with it so rather happy I finally got at least one BH vid done of the several ideas that were poking at me! :)

Oh yes, I did see your fanmix when you posted it (I was at least keeping up with reading posts)! If I remember correctly I already had a lot of the songs on there so I didn't download it, and apologies if I didn't comment - it might have been one of those days I had to seriously rush through things. I think I once attempted to use WMM to see what it could do, but it didn't offer me all the same options that Sony Vegas did so I left it rather quickly! Good luck though! :)
