Vid: Road rage  
I'm totally spamming today, since long weekends = fannish productivity! *g*

This vid was my attempt to overcome my phobia of vidding my favourite characters or ships. You'll notice that I still shied away from vidding Lee's perspective... but I'm getting there. I also tried to vid fast, since I'm not keen to repeat the weeks of wallowing in despair that surrounded my last vid. *g* So, nothing serious here... just a light-hearted attempt to stare down my inner vidding demons. Oh, and I only had the mini series and Season 1 to work with, so silly shippiness ensued.

Song: Road rage
Artist: Catatonia
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica
Premise: Apollo gives Starbuck road rage *snerk*
Warnings: spoilers for mini-series and Season 1, mild nudity
Download: direct download (33MB) or streaming at BAM
Feedback: Pretty please! *bats eyelashes* It's unbeta-ed, so there's only me to blame.
Lyrics:
If all you've got to do today is find peace of mind
Come round,
You can take a piece of mine
And if all you've got to do today is hesitate
Come here, you can leave it late with me .
You could be taking it easy on yourself
You should be making it easy on yourself
Cause you and I know, it's all over the front page
You give me road rage
Racing through the best days
It's up to you boy you're driving me crazy
Thinking you may be losing your mind.
If all you've got to prove today is your innocence,
Calm down, you're as guilty as can be
If all you've got to lose alludes to yesterday
Yesterday's through, now do anything you please.
You could be taking it easy on yourself
You should be making it easy on yourself
Cause you and I know
It's all over the front page
You give me road rage
Racing through the best days
It's up to you boy you're driving me crazy,
Thinking you may be losing your mind.
You're losing your mind.
You, you've been racing through the best days
You, you've been racing through the best days.
Space age, road rage, fast lane,
And if all you've got to do today is find peace of mind
Come here, you can take a piece of mine.
You could be taking it easy on yourself
You should be making it easy on yourself
Cause you and I know,
It's all over the front page,
you give me road rage
Racing through the best days
It's up to you boy you're driving me crazy
Thinking you may be losing your mind.
But you and I know
We all live in the space age, coming down with road rage
Racing through the best days
It's up to you boy you're driving me crazy,
Thinking you may be losing your mind.
It's not over, it's not over, it's not over,
It's not over, it's not over, it's not over,
you and I know
We all live in the space age,
you give me road rage,
Racing to the best days
It's up to you boy you're driving me crazy
Thinking you may be losing your mind.
Losing your mind

That was great! It was fun to just remember the fairly uncomplicated relationship they had back then compared to the mess they're in now.

I d/loaded the larger version 'cause I'm a sucker for the extra shiny pretty.

The vid had very clean cuts and the pacing was great. Wonderful job!

Oh, thank you! I'm delighted you enjoyed it. (I'm a sucker for the big shiny pretty too--hence the many gratuitous shots of pilot prettiness!) And yes, it was startling to revisit how happy they were back then.

Since I'm on dialup and all, I haven't actually got it downloaded and watched yet. But it's at 8% and I'm downloading the small one (for now) so I have some hope that it'll be done before I go to bed. Maybe.

I'll be back later to squee about how awesome it is, but I just wanted to say how much I love these vids you do! And since I'm all BSG-withdrawl-y, this one has great timing!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Roslin Kara yaybop_radar on April 8th, 2007 06:56 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you, Jen! I will cross my fingers for a quick download for you. Hope you enjoy it!
Nora Norwich: Kara seriousnorwich36 on April 8th, 2007 07:10 am (UTC)
It finished downloading very quickly, despite the dialup, and I really liked it! Great job with the tonal shifts between the seriousness of the verses and the humor on the refrains. Also, very pretty! They were so cute and comparatively innocent in season 1, weren't they?
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Karabop_radar on April 8th, 2007 11:49 am (UTC)
Ohh, yay! I'm so glad you enjoyed it and particularly that you felt the tonal shifts worked. I felt that the contrast between serious and light-hearted fitted them well anyway, since that was so characteristic of them in Season 1. And yeah, it was quite the eye-opener returning to Season 1 joy. (I felt like I was becoming one of those Clex fans who's all 'oh, but Season 1's the only good season'! Because they're so incredibly charming and untortured.)
Kate: Jamie Bambermskatej on April 8th, 2007 11:41 am (UTC)
I LOVE THIS!!!! The vid is gorgeous and happyful and it's a *perfect* song for them. It's left me with a massive smile on my face. THEY ARE SO OTP. Great work, Bopster!

Eee! *bounces* I'm so glad you like, Kate! And that it gave you the glowy OTP-y feeling. The song's always seemed like a classic choice for them (and hey, it's probably been vidded before, but who cares?). I luff them!

Ohnoes! I want to watch the pretty vid! I'll check back in a bit to see if you have any luck uploading it somewhere else. Maybe try sendspace.com ?

Physically, I feel like crap, but this made me feel all warm and happy on the inside. :) Awesome work, Boppy! You just impress the hell out of me.

Also, you really make me love Lee/Kara. \o/
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kara/Lee dreamybop_radar on April 9th, 2007 02:10 am (UTC)
Awwww, no!! Are you sick? :-(

I'm delighted you like it. Have you seen the mini-series or any Season 1 yet? They're so damn adorable. *treasures* Before they went all angsty, Lee/Kara were magic!

Ah, mini and season 1 pilots! Hiatus is looking better each week since I keep reading great fics and watching great vids like this. I laughed out loud when they spilled the paint and Adama walks in and Kara bursts out laughing. They are like two kids. I laughed and I have seen that moment a million times. It never gets old. This vid keeps me smiling.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kara/Lee collapsedbop_radar on April 9th, 2007 02:32 am (UTC)
Oh yay! Yes, we've got to keep up the fun during hiatus. *g* And I know what you mean--I cannot watch that paint scene without giggling or the hose scene without smiling. It never gets old, and the insane chemistry they have amazes me time and time again. I'm so glad you enjoyed the vid!!
nehellania on April 9th, 2007 02:57 am (UTC)
Hokay! I finally got it downloaded at 4:30am, so it only took two hours, which wasn't that long at all really. But then we had Easter today so, I haven't had a chance to hit LJ till now.

YAY. That was a very cute and amusing vid! The song was very character and pairing appropriate (and catchy as hell btw), the clips fit really nicely with the song and weren't choppily put together or anything. It had flow. It's a really great distillation of why I loved Kara/Lee so damn much s1. (not to say that I don't cling and love them still, but yes).

Fabulous job K! *applauds*
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kara/Lee dreamybop_radar on April 9th, 2007 03:05 am (UTC)
Oh, love the icon!

Yay! I'm very glad you enjoyed it--and yes, that song is ridiculously catchy. I think it used to irritate me when it was overplayed, but *shrugs* it fitted these guys. And thanks--I'm glad you felt it had flow. It wasn't easy, given how fast I was vidding, to get the movement right. But it was a good learning experience. One of my more longterm projects is to make a real action vid, so I'm on a huge learning curve about movement in vids and what does and doesn't work.

They were awesome in S1! Later Kara/Lee is a different kind of awesome (which I'm still hoping will come good in S4), but it was fun to revisit their earlier days.
Dionusiadionusia on April 9th, 2007 03:07 am (UTC)
Oh, AWESOME! Worth waiting for all day, I tell you! How did you know that it was this special wish of mine, to have all of the best thisclose piloty moments of season one combined into a pleasurable montage set to a rockin' song? With a special focus on being mesmerized by each others' mouths?

It's all good, but I adore how you cut the Cloud-9 waterhose fight. And I especially love how you snuck in the Kara-fantasy Lee sex at the end, there. I mean, it really happened, it must have. It was real. I saw it. Right? Yes. Must rewatch right now.

Thanks for this - marvelous job!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lee/Kara boundbop_radar on April 9th, 2007 03:13 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm beaming right now, to think that you liked it so much.

With a special focus on being mesmerized by each others' mouths?
Right! Right! There was so much eye-mouth action in those days! They're entirely hypnotised by each other and it's brilliant.

I especially love how you snuck in the Kara-fantasy Lee sex at the end, there
Heee, hee, um, yes I couldn't resist. I actually think if someone had beta'ed this for me, they'd have probly told me to dump it, because it wasn't canon and it was too overt, but hey, this is an unashamedly shippy vid, and Kara was totally thinking about it and that's good enough for me! (Plus I kind of liked the idea of it fitting the lyric 'It's not over...') Oh, and it was too pretty not to. :-p

I *love* this. :D It's so fun (without ignoring the--granted much different--angst of the first season). I adore what you did with the brig and finger-painting sections in particular. And the Colonial Day stuff. And, dammit, all of the stuff. ;D You make me grin like crazy with the champagne and laughing, and then go and squeeze my heart with the Zak stuff and the way she can look so incredibly vulnerable around him.

::loves and loves::
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Karabop_radar on April 9th, 2007 09:07 am (UTC)
Ohhh, I love your icon!! *stares*

:-) I'm so so happy you liked it! If it repays a tenth of the joy I get from your vids, I'm overjoyed! I'm so glad you felt those part works--I've still got soo much to learn about vidding, and particularly movement and how to work with it effectively, not to mention my complete non-grasp of effects. But if the vid worked for you that's wonderful: I'm particularly pleased that the tonal shifts worked.

She does look so vulnerable around him--it was quite amazing to revisit these days and see how (comparably) open they were.
brokenmnemonic: Touchbrokenmnemonic on April 9th, 2007 07:44 am (UTC)
Mmmm, nice vid :) I'm not a big Catatonia fan (never been able to work out why, which is odd) but I do like this vid :) Even ignoring the technicalities... like the way you uploaded a nice big shiny copy for all the shiny junkies like me... this is a very nicely put together vid. You build the pace up nicely, alternating moods depending on whether you're playing to the lyrics or the refrain, and you picked out all the bouncy things from S1 that made them such a great pair to ship. Maybe the reason fandom seems to anti them these days is that there are people who've not seen Season 1? If that's the case, they should be made to watch your vid, very quickly :D
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lee/Kara boundbop_radar on April 9th, 2007 09:18 am (UTC)
You know, I don't love them (Catatonia) either, but felt the song fit, and I'm glad it worked for you despite the music choice. Very pleased you felt the mood shifts worked! And I'm like you--I can't resist the shiny!

Maybe you're right--maybe people haven't seen Season 1--I know I have quite a few LJ friends who are into the show now who haven't seen the mini or Season 1...
