In the past few months I have made a few new fan videos. I uploaded the latest today and thought I’d share. The first two videos may only appeal if you actually know the shows they were made for, the last video may have a wider appeal.
In October I made a video for the BBC series Silent Witness; it wasn’t for the more recent series, but for the older ones when Nikki was still working with Harry and Leo and the three of them made the best team. I started making fan videos because of this show and thought I was done because Harry and Leo are no longer there. Then I heard this song and immediately images of Nikki and Harry flooded back again. So, I dusted off the old clips I had once made, and created this video. I still miss Harry and Leo and the magic of these three together so very much… and I still secretly hope that Harry will one day return (sadly Leo will never be able to)!
The second video is for the Australian TV series A Place to Call Home. This past fall series 4 aired which was yet again good and very dramatic. I have made several videos before for this series but this time I made a video with only season 4 clips, illustrating the latest part of the journey for Sarah and George. So, beware of series 4 spoilers if you haven’t seen the latest A Place to Call Home series yet!
And last but not least, a ‘miscellaneous’ project I have had cooking for a while now, ever since I saw this video about President Obama. It is no secret that I have loved the Obamas in the White House and that I will miss them. I have been looking at pictures over the last months, mostly taken by White House photographer Pete Souza, and the images are beautiful, touching, fun and striking. I have been collecting them and all the while two “Don’t go” songs have been swirling around in my head while I look at them. So, I made a 7 minute video with images set to both these songs. In a working democracy it is inevitable that a president leaves, even if he was a very good one in my view, but I will miss the Obamas nonetheless…
I have been sitting on this video for a while (just added the last two images today) because I really don’t want to get into political discussions. It would be pointless, I won’t agree with the opposing view and the opposing view will not agree with me anyhow. However, especially after yesterday’s disastrous inauguration speech by the new president, I do really want to celebrate the Obamas and I am pleased to have now done that with this video.
