So, I occasionally make fan videos but for some reason I never really made one about Richard Armitage. Ok, so a couple of years ago I did once do a video of Richard Armitage saying my name “Esther” in Berlin Station and Gabriel Macht and the Suits cast saying it in Suits. I discovered a few months ago that it got blocked on YouTube, so I uploaded it to Vimeo…
Oh, and my phone ringtone for the past three years or so has been this, which means that I love to not answer my phone!
I never made a ‘real’ Richard Armitage fan video, however. There have always been so many good Armitage fan videos out there, I have just never felt the need to make my own. In addition, my editing skills and software aren’t that good (old even!) and I can’t really add much to the gorgeousness and professional looking videos already out there. In recent years, the Armitage fan videos have seemed to dry up and I too have not been watching that many. Uploading the Esther-movie a couple of months ago, made me think that maybe it is time to make one myself after all, rekindling the Armitage fan-video experience.
Over time I have been sourcing Richard-clips and recently thought maybe now was the time to finally make that video. While trying to figure out what song to set my video to I remembered that when I went to see Ed Sheeran last July something about one of his newer songs, The Joker and the Queen, really touched me. So, I figured maybe I could use that.
I once made a video for James Stewart in love and in the past year made a similar one with Ronald Colman and even a second Ronald Colman one. Now, it’s Richard’s turn for a similarly themed video! I’ve been fiddling around with this video and last night I finished it. On looking at it again today, I figure it’s done. I think Richard is pretty much the best hugger on screen and his kissing (North and South has the loveliest kissing I have seen on screen ever!) is not to be scoffed at either. So, here it is, my simple little video about Richard Armitage loving people. I had to book-end it with North and South as that was my gateway to Richard all the way back in 2006.
I have been an Armitage fan for about 16 years now, sometimes it has felt like a fire raging and sometimes it has just been smouldering embers. This video gives me a steady glow of a feeling, a good characterization of the steady affection I have felt for the man for so many years now. He really deserved his own video from me. 🙂
