MY FIRST VID!!! Concrete Angel - Adria + Daniel/Vala  
After many attempts, I've finally complete my very first vid!! It's a crack!vid because apparently that's where my talents lie ^_~ 

Title: Concrete Angel
Song: Concrete Angel by Martina McBrid
SPOILERS: All Adria episodes and Ark of Truth
Summary: A crack!vid looking at Adria's life from conception to supposed death. This vid shows how Adria was really just trying to make the world a better place but people kept trying to stop her - namely her mother and Daniel. ^_~
Acknowledgments: HUGE thanks to scifi_tv_addict for mentoring me, beta'ing this vid, and making a fabulous banner for it!! ^_^



Mood: accomplishedaccomplished

MD, seriously, awesome. I really liked how it wasn't a cheeky Adria's the misunderstood Bad Guy vid, but a real look into her and how she saw everything around her. Very awesome.

Yay!! *giddy* My first vid comment on LJ! I'm so glad you liked it, Isa, I was really happy with how it turned out! ^_^ Thanks sooo much for my first review!! ^_^

You want me to make a rambling comment of praise again? Cause I can do it on here as well :p Time to change up the flattery...

...so you know I am jealous of you right now, right? My first video was so mediocre and laced with generic editing (and I sooo did not even attempt VOs)...and here you went and showed me up with all kinds of fancy manips and such. I always told you that you would be a great vidder but you kept going "no, no, no" but now there is no way to deny it! Mwah, ha, ha ha!!!

Seriously though, nicely done. Love the whole idea behind this and I think you did a great job with making Adria look psycho in the most humorously sappy way :p Also, way to sneak that D/V in there...even in a video about another character you've managed to spread a little DeVilish love. I commend your skills at subtlety ;)

As for the crack!vidding gene - you do seem to posses it. Now go and put it to good use working on "Welcome to the Family," "High School Never Ends," or that fic-inspired D/V vid you're *supposed* to be working on ;)

LoL, when you ramble you really ramble, and I totally love it! ^_^

And dude, jealous over my vid?? My vid would not be anywhere NEAR what it is without your guidance and mentoring! You saw my early prototypes for HSNE and TBDT :P Those were not pretty days ^_~ But yay, I totally AM a vidder now!! I feel like I'm part of the cool kid's club now :P

And I couldn't rest easy knowing I'd made a purely Adria-centric vid, especially since I don't really care much for the character ^_~ I have a feeling DeVilish will feature at least partly in all of my future vids ^_~

As for the next vids, I think I should prooobably work on BT first. ^_~ Made a commitment after all.

i really like how you portrayed Adria :)
well done! and its soooo much better then my first vid :P

Thank you!! ^_^ And the only reason my first vid was as good as it was is because I had Stef to mentor me along ^_~ Hopefully what I've learned will stick with me for the next ones! ^_^

Hey ya, I`m svala from the Kawoosh! board and I found your video link over there.
I think you did an awesome job with your first video *claps* Although I`m not this much into the whole D/V storyline, or, not at all, this didn`t stop me from watching it till the end. Your clips go so well with the music, great choice of scenes. You made it look really good. The Voice overs where well done also (I love voice over!), they add to the overall feeling of the Video.
There was not one clip where I thought "Ops, doesn`t work".
You have a great timing, everything fits together just perfect.

I hope to see more of your Videos in the future, this was more than a good start *nods*

Oh, btw, thank you for vidding SG-1. Everyone seems to jump Atlantis lately when it comes with new Stargate videos . So it is nice to have a new Vidder who picked SG-1.

Hey!! I finally re-found this post! I'm sooo soo sorry that this reply is coming so late. There's an explanation of how my life went nuts shortly after posting this vid if you'd like to see it.:S

Anyway, throughout the madness, I remembered that I had gotten such a great review and comments from a renowned vidder and finally I can reply! ^_^

First of all, thank you so much! You have no idea how exciting it was to receive good comments on my vid from someone whose vids I'm always so impressed with, especially since you aren't into the D/V storyline! So thanks again, so much! It really inspired me to keep at this vidding thing and hopefully I'll have a couple of vids out in the next month!

And of course I vid SG-1 ^_~ It's my #1 favourite SciFi show and although SGA held my interest for a season or two, I'm not anywhere near familiar enough with it anymore to start vidding it. So I can almost guarantee that the vids I churn out will be chiefly SG-1 with maybe some SGA thrown in only when it's necessary ^_~

Thanks again for the great review, and again I'm really sorry it took forever to reply!

oh, I had no idea you know my Videos, I think it is my turn to say: Thank You !!! *blush*

And I really do hope you`ll do some more. There are so many SGA videos around these days.
But then, I also didn`t do a SG-1 video for some time now. I guess this needs to be changed, soon.

I have to say it again: Your video is just great, it is stored on my hard drive.

Be sure I`ll keep looking for your videos!
