Second RE MV completed, woo.

This was sort of a... random project, which I tend to get a fair amount. In fact, most of the music videos I start out like this are the ones I finish, whereas the ones I want to do and plan for never gone done. :|

This one was a lot simpler than the last one, actually. There weren't a lot of effects or anything, so it was more about trying to choose the right footage and not... overwhelm the video with flashiness. I thought the fading to black and white and fades were subtle enough to add to the video rather than take away from it.

Yes, I cut the song down in two places. Long instrumental sections can be difficult to work with, especially when your footage is limited, so I took out about a minute of the song total. I really need to just find shorter songs to work with. ;;

I think that's about it. Once I had the raw footage ready to go for all of this, it only took a few days. (Which always worries me when I get through a video in less than a week or two.;; ) Enjoy?

My first RE MV completed, yaaay go team.

This new version of Premiere is way different than the one I was so used to, too. How the transitions work is different. Better by far, but different and took some getting used to. I think the setup is better even though it *looks* more intimidating when you first open it. A lot more buttons and menus, lol. I installed it and opened it and was like "oh fuck no." But then I got the hang of it.

Playback in the preview pane is sooo much better, though that's mostly 'cause I have a better computer, I think?? You don't have to, like, select your timeline and have it process a preview file to see all your effects/transitions/etc like in the old version, which was a pain in the ass. Especially with a video like this where I had lighting effects on 90% of the clips to even out the colors and saturate all the really bland CV scenes.

Ummm... Let's see, I tried making the first chunk of scenes of Claire in the airport darker with an ambiance lighting because my source footage was making everything look like shit. I hope it isn't too dark on normal monitors/screens. I know my timing with the flashes is a couple milliseconds off in a few places, but it's difficult to time them around transitions.

Like I mentioned above, lighting effects/ambiance settings/brightness and contrast adjustments on... most everything save for a few. The Code Veronica clips are naturally so dull and flat looking, so I upped the saturation in those, upped the contrast a little and used the lighting effects on those, too, and they turned out looking a lot better than I thought they would. The graveyard scene still looks pretty pale and bland but nothing I tried was working on it, so.

Idek about the pairings. I tried kind of... sectioning it out. Started out with Leon/Claire, then it moved into Steve/Claire and finally ended up in Chris/Claire. I'm just waiting to see how many flames I get for that one, but stfu I like it. (Yes, I like the pairing, if you have a problem with it, I suggest not watching. :( )

Title: Ten Years
Fandom: Resident Evil
Characters: Billy Coen/Rebecca Chambers
Rating: R
Notes: Ten years after Zero, so... around-ish the time of RE5. Also - the bear idea? Not mine. I blame RP. :( ♥

The dog-tags she took from him a decade prior hang around Rebecca's neck; she put them on earlier that day and Billy finds himself watching the glint of metal where the tags rest just between her breasts.Collapse )
