Charlie vid - Resurrection

This video represents what I like best about Charlie - the angst, the snark the courage. I wanted to do a summary of the character in one vid...

I hope you'll like it. I worked many hours on it... beat use can be time consuming. The song is by a Canadian band named Moist. Very, very angsty.

OMG I LOVE IT! Love the song, love the beat use, love the angst, love the anger... I especially love the part at the end where you used every shot in existence of him hitting somebody or showing attitude. :D :D :D And of course the matching of scenes and lyrics -- "I'm sorry my old friend, I've got to leave you once again" with Hurley and especially "It's the cruelty that you like" when Locke hits him. (And how you show Claire every time it says "Everybody's got to die from something" ;) )

I was listening to the song the other night and thinking about maybe doing something with double images for the graphic just because it seemed like it would go with the music, and then it turns out you used them in the vid! Cool!

yay!!!!! Thank you so much!!

I'm so glad you loved that part because I was calling it the 'jelly mix' while making it. I was hoping you would notice. ;)

And GMTA with the double images!! I really like that effects but I find it hard to fit it into vids sometimes.

Have fun with the graphic!! Thank you so much for making it again!

Bwah! The jelly mix! Oh my gosh, you know me so well. :D That's my Charlie all right.

Okay, I LOVE that this isn't another one of those soppy weepy videos about how beauiful Charlie's sacrifice was. I like that this video is just the raw ugly truth that Charlie had an lousy life and suffered a cruel violent death. This isn't a tearjerker. This hits you like a punch in the stomach. It's so powerful.

I love the flashing B&W slogans. The speedy editing is just amazing from start to finish. I love all the clips of Charlie being a badass little punk and going out in a blaze of glory. I loved how you ended it on Charlies "I will eat you soul" face. And WOW! How many times does Charlie get beatings in this vid? I'd really like to punch all those people back.

You amaze me. Nuff said!

Thanks so much Cappy. As much as I like weepy Charlie vids, I didn't want to make another one. I wanted to make one that would kick ass (hopefully!) like the way Charlie was such a bad-ass before dying. This was an homage to the snarkiness of his character - what I like best about Charlie.

I will eat your soul face

BWAH!!! It's such a great way to describe it!! And can you believe I didn't include everytime Charlie gets a beating?? The poor little guy got so abused... he deserved a better fate. *sigh*

They should write on Charlie grave "Now I'm dead at least people will stop hitting me". Cept from looks of things Charlie may join the ranks of Joanna and Artz by not even having a grave.

I'm wondering if perhaps you meant "kick-ass graphic". ;)

D'oh!!!! There should be a typo-check in addition to the spell check. Typo check... do you think there's a future in that? ;)

I blame it all on alcohol. :D

Oh, well, if you were drunk that's okay then. ;)

That graphic is AWESOME! And of course, the vid is even AWESOMER! (Not a word but it should be. ;) ) Like I said back at LVI, I love how you took all this anger and grief and formed it into this boiling vid! Really beautifully done! ♥♥♥!!!

Jelly is awesome! I think she was as angry as me when she made it! Thanks so much again!

The vid is awesome!! Really like your editing ^^

Oh, and the link to download is dead :S I've watched the vid some time ago on youtube. Did you knew that Youtube is racist? It won't let me watch some vid because I'm from Argentina!! 'This vid is not availed in your country'

Thank you!! I lost the file but I know someone who's still got it on their harddrive. I'll let you know when the link is fixed! It's good to know some people are still watching! :D

You're from Argentina? So cool! I'm from Canada and I get that message from youtube also. Don't know why some vids are restricted to some contries...
