Firefly Video - Fade Out

This video was based on an original concept by dear friend jellyfrog  . We were both gushing on how wonderful that song from Radiohead was and she came out with the concept behind this video. It's about River trying to fade out -- to leave or die -- but the crew becomes her family and teaches her how to be a girl again and "keeps her in the air".

Title: Fade Out
Song and Artist: Street Spirit (Fade Out) by Radiohead
Fandom/Pairing: Firefly (River)
Size/Lenght: 43MB/4:17
Notes: This video differs from my previous one (Before the Dawn) because it doesn't have fancy special effects. Two reasons for that:

1. My video editing software is giving me a hard time and even inserting a clip to a simple timeline is time consuming. So no way would I be able to make the effects I did for Before the Dawn and retain my sanity.

2. The song is so pretty that I didn't feel the need to add fancy gimmicks.

Thank you! So you're thinking of vidding Firefly?? That would be so awesome. There're some great shots to use - especially for River.

Well, I'm sorry for the threat it represented to your sanity, but I'm very happy you persevered! :) I love the song so much and it's wonderful to have such a beautiful video to go with it. Thanks so much for making it!!!

(Ack! I don't have any River icons!)

Thank you for having such a great idea!

Not being able to make fancy special effects might not be such a bad thing... maybe it will force me to focus on the story more. ;)

Very beautiful vid. Sometimes simpler is the better option and I think you did right here, you really did let the subject tell the story rather than the effects. Very nice work!

I've been vidding for 2 years now and I recently realized that simpler is ofter better. Thanks for the nice comment!!
