Believe it or not, I started watching this show... last week and now I have a video! I fell hard and when that happens, I feel compelled to make vids. I would like to thank my Geek Squee friends whose constant squeeing about John Simm got me interested in watching Life on Mars.

Squee indeed! It's so cool to have new LoM fans on Geek Squee I've been a John Simm fan for literally about 15 years. He was one of my first TV crushes. As an actor he's one of Britain's treasures. I'm so pleased fans in other countries are discovering him!

Your video...I can't tell you how pleased I am you got your vidding muse back! There is something about your vids I just connect with - your editing, your timing, your artistry, the way you shape the clips with the music. You hit all the right notes. I felt a little weepy at the end of this because it was all so perfect. Your final sequence featured some of my fav Sam/Gene and Sam/Annie moments. Now I just need to go and watch my DVDs all over again!

Thanks for making this. I'm sure I'll watch it many times, like your other wonderful vids. Have you posted it in any LoMs comms?

Thanks so much cappy, I was a little weary about making a vid so soon after watching the series. I was afraid I wasn't familiar enough with the characters and story lines to do the series justice. So relieved you thought I hit the right notes!

I'm so pleased fans in other countries are discovering him!

Thanks to you for helping me discovering him! He's a treasure all right. Lucky for you, you can watch all of his work. It's a little more difficult for me. *sigh*

Have you posted it in any LoMs comms?

I posted it to lifein1973. Not sure if the fandom is into fanvids...

I've seen vids posted and I've recced a few on GS so I think they'll love it on the comm. This was amazing, it had your signature style all over it. I always get a sense of story with your vids and I loved the way Sam seemed to transition from outsider to someone with friends. It was a wonderful study of Simm's extraordinary acting talent too. You captured so many fabulous expressions and so much emotion. He gives you a lot to work with, I'm sure you had a hard time choosing the scenes. Like Cappy, it made me feel like rewatching the series right now.

Did it feel good doing it again? Are you enjoying it more now that you're inspired?

Thank you! It's always easier to vid a character played by a great actor... there's so much emotions you can play with! Also, there was so many great shots available to work with.

Did it feel good doing it again? Are you enjoying it more now that you're inspired?

Yes, it felt good! I'm exhausted though. There's this weird thing happening when I'm doing something I'm really passionate about... I can't sleep!!

Oh. Oh. I love, love, loved this. Brilliant clip-matching and editing, great song (Feeder are most excellent), and the narrative! This is truly beautiful, so thanks so much for sharing.

You're very welcome! Thank you so much for the wonderful comment.
Nov. 23rd, 2008 01:39 am (UTC)
Oh, that was beautiful! And so emotional. I hadn't realized how many different intense emotions we see Sam go through. Loved the parts showing their fantastic camaraderie too.

(I really should finish watching the show)
Nov. 23rd, 2008 02:12 am (UTC)
Yes you should!! I haven't enjoyed a tv show this much since BSG!

I love you too jen!! Seems like we're watching the same shows! Had to give little Sammy a happy ending, you know?

And thanks for the heads up, I'll never watch Ten Inch Hero. Not that I was planning too...
Nov. 23rd, 2008 09:09 am (UTC)
I love this! I really do! You've done it really well, and fantastic song choice! Now I wanna watch Life on Mars all over again! :D
Nov. 23rd, 2008 01:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm going to have to watch all over again also!
Nov. 23rd, 2008 12:29 pm (UTC)
Wow, what a beautiful and emotional video! You did really well, and I'm glad to see someone new entering the wonderful Life on Mars fandom. YAY! :)
Nov. 23rd, 2008 01:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the nice comment and the warm welcome into the Life on Mars fandom! I'm so glad I discovered the show.

Oh, wow! If I encouraged you to finish your own LoM vids, then my job is done!! I've given you some suggestions about that line but hopefully you'll be able to make it work. :D

Thanks for the nice comment about the way I used the lyrics... that's exactly what I was getting at. And I had a lot of fun collecting all those Sam-is-smiling shots!
Nov. 23rd, 2008 02:17 pm (UTC)
That was pretty damn cool! Last week?? Hopefully you've just started making vids for LoM, I'd love to see more.
Nov. 23rd, 2008 02:45 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I hope I'll get inspired again and maybe add another vid to your gentlydoesit community. Great comm, btw. My friend kajam is also making her first LoM vids, I'll tell her about it.
Nov. 24th, 2008 05:50 pm (UTC)
Oh just lovely! The change from sad lost Sam to happy he's there Sam was great and wonderful song for Sam too!
Nov. 24th, 2008 10:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I like happy endings. ;)
Nov. 25th, 2008 05:59 am (UTC)
Yay, you vidded! I haven't seen Life on Mars except for the first ep. I don't know if I'll watch more. Maybe! I am just happy you are still vidding.

I will watch this! But before or after I watch the rest of the season, I don't know. Still deciding. But yay vids!
Nov. 26th, 2008 01:25 am (UTC)
Don't watch my vid until you've seen the show! It has major spoilers!!

Are you watching the US version or the original one? I only watched the UK one and I can tell you it's worth it!!! Amazing show. Too bad it's only 16 episodes. :(

It's KC
Hey mind refriending me? I accidentally deleted everyone when I renamed my journal. Whoopsie.

PS - I still have yet to finish watching the show, hence my lack of commentary on what is sure to be an awesome vid!

Hey KC! Cute new name. :)

Hi! I feel slightly awkward here, because I'm about a million years late to LoM, but I really enjoyed this vid and I was wondering if you still have a copy I could download?

Thank you so much! 'Late' comments are my favorite. :-)
