Vid Stuff

The last couple of years I've made tribute vids to all those lovely characters Kripke and Co. kill off during the season. All the characters in this vid have been recurring characters, except one. I'm completely guilty of putting him in because a) he fit a lyric *hides* and b) I've grown a little attached to the idea of him and he felt like more that just a MOTW.

These aren't character studies as such as each one has such a short amount of time, but what I tried to do was catch a little bit of the essence of the character's life and then demise.

I wouldn't say I've angsted over this vid but boy did I play with it a lot. I was pretty set on the structure from the start but for some reason I just couldn't settle on the transitions. Cross dissolves? Straight cuts? Flashes? Blurs? How long should this cross dissolve go for? What's the best way to signal new sections? Ahhh! Just stop already! So I did. It will have to do.

I am nervous about this one. It's not what I call a "big idea" vid. It's more a vid I wanted to do for myself as a way of saying goodbye to some memorable characters in Season 4.

**not my sentiment at all. Luckily these words are not mentioned in the song. Also the irony of "It's something unpreditable.." isn't lost on me. Of course it's friggin' predictable. You're a SPN OC!! What do you expect!?
