Wonderwall video

It's not a secret that I wanted to do this video for a long time... I even created a thread at LVI requesting that nobody takes that song.... I had originally planned on using Oasis very upbeat original version because I was sure that Desmond would save Charlie in the end and they would defeat the universe together. I was wrong... the universe won. Charlie's dead... but he died saving Desmond's life. Funny how, in the end, it was Charlie who became Desmond's wonderwall. 

Because of the rather depressing outcome, I decided to take another version, Ryan Adams' melancholic take on the song. Special thanks to

super_kcfor making me discover that song a few months back.

It took me only a few hours to make... I started last night and finished this morning. I felt like going very simple with no special effects whatsoever apart from some black and while shots and color adjustments. I thought the story and melody were strong enough in itself not to fill it with unnecessary gimmicks.

I'm just going to say... WOW. Simple worked well. Very well. I loved the black and white bits. You are awesome.

Thank you! :D I like how the black and white turns out. I love working with special effects but I think this one didn't need it.

Yeah. It was absolutely beautiful.

So beautiful Cinthia. I have always loved the Ryan Adams version. Excellent work, so touching.

Darn!!! I forgot to credit you for making me discover the Ryan Adams version in the first place ;) Will amend post. Thanks so much for the nice comment.

I did that? Haha. No need to credit me! It's such a great remake I'm sure you would have found it eventually without my help!

Again I loved the vid!

Love it, cylune. I'm so glad to see you vidding Chesmond at last. Your instincts were right. The simplicity works beautifully. I loved the way that you used the clip of Charlie helping Desmond to bed when he was drunk. It came at just the right time. I like the Ryan Adams version better than Oasis and the tone is far more suitable.

BTW your new banner is gorgeous!

Isn't that banner great? I told lune when she put it up that I liked how it looked like Charlie was going to be the one to save Desmond, and it turned out to be true! That was before the finale aired. Lune apparently has flashes of her own. ;)

I remember that! As for having flashes, I was also convinced that Charlie was going to live... *sigh*

Thanks. I'm in a weird place right now in terms of vidding when I don't like special effects... I use to use them all the time before. It's a little weird, maybe it will pass soon.

As for Charlie helping Desmond, I thought it would fit nicely with the ending where it's Charlie who is saving Des.

And thanks for the nice word about my banner! I'm really proud of it!!
