TSCC Fan vid: Lost Inside (Sarah)

My video is finished. Finally. What did that take me, like two weeks? Well, I hadn't done any video editing before, so I was learning as I went along. That tends to slow things down. Also, I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to creative projects (in fact it's killing me that after I uploaded this, I noticed one transition spot didn't turn out quite like I thought it had!!!!!! Heh. Oh well).

Special thanks to schmacky0 for pointing out my sloppy transition work early on and to sabaceanbabe for doing the full beta, which prompted experiments in graduated slow motion. And I've also learned plenty just from viewing their own vids.

The video is about Sarah (see, you might not know this about me, but I'm kind of a Sarah Connor fan) and the impact of losing her connection to John. It's set to Avril Lavigne's "Nobody's Home". This is my first fan video, but I don't think it'll be my last. I really enjoyed making it.

Watch it on Youtube.
Watch it on Vimeo.
Download it (46mb, 640x360 Quicktime movie).





On a personal level, this video represented everything I have been unable to do since I quit smoking. I haven't been able to stay focused on anything and I've had no creative ability. But Sarah Connor came through for me, as always. Somehow I latched onto this idea and was able to stick with it to completion. It's just a simple fanvid, I know. But for me it was a milestone and I feel like I'm back :)

Very nice!

You inspire me to get into fan vidding, which I am clueless to begin. Online tuts seem to vary from one another and there are so many programs to choose from as a result.

Also, big kudos to quitting smoking. I wonder if Sarah went through the same. She smokes in T2, but I do not recall a scene of her smoking or a hint of it (broadcast TV doesn't do smoking in shows, right?) --Actually, I'm reading a T2-era book and it is touching on Sarah's struggle to quit smoking and drinking at her son's insistence.

You totally should! I was clueless too before I started working on this. I got a copy of Final Cut Express, imported the song I wanted to use and all 31 episodes and then just started playing around (and did a lot of googling). I really like how this turned out and the only thing I'm sure I'd do differently if I was more skilled is pack in more clips.

kudos to quitting smoking. I wonder if Sarah went through the same.

Thank you. In some ways it's been easier than I expected and in other ways much harder. Sarah's a determined chick, though, so I have no doubt that when she decided to quit, she'd have dealt with it better than I have! They touched on her former smoking in SMWWSMS: "I quit smoking years ago. I've got too much excitement in my life." :P

Kudos to quitting! Just remember, we are all Sarah Connor! :D

And as far as I know, Lena quit smoking this past year, so I hope our fav Brit sticks with it too!

Thanks. It's been seven weeks now and I don't see myself ever going back to it. I smoked for way to long!
