Buffy and Angel

video

So I’ve had this idea kicking around in my head for a few months now, but I didn’t think I’d get around to editing it for awhile. It’s a video of the Buffy-Angel relationship, set to the song “Angel” by Sarah McLachlan. Cliche, I know, but I liked it. Plus, I think for my first attempt at doing something like this, it came out pretty well.

Some quick thoughts on the process (think of this as a director’s commentary):

• iMovie seemed to add some little hitches in the video whenever I made a transition or split a clip. My guess is that had to do with the quality of the source video (which wasn’t great).
• I had to modify some of my original choices for video clips, and I ended up going a little longer than I’d like on “End of Days” and “Chosen” but all in all, I’m happy with the representation of episodes.
• FYI, the first clip is actually from the end of Season 2, but in the timeline of the show, it comes before anything else. The last clip is from the first episode -- the first official meeting of Buffy and Angel.
• I wish I’d had more transitions to choose from, and more flexibility in distributing the transitions between clips -- guess it’s time to learn Final Cut Express.

Feel free to leave comments expressing your enjoyment or hatred of the clip (or enjoyment or hatred of the Buffy/Angel relationship). I may do a Buffy/Spike video next (and I do have a song in mind, but I’m open to suggestion). I’ll never do a Buffy/Riley video, because I hate Riley.
