I just gotta say that I am having so much fun working on my first ever fanvid. It's probably going to be a total trainwreck but right now I really don't care. I'm not even half way done in clipping but for fun I threw down some of the miniclips I extracted from the larger clips onto the sceneline of Premiere Elements. I'm still a wet behind the ears newbie so I mostly wanted to tinker around with it and get a feel for it before I get done clipping but I seriously laughed out loud. Oh Schanke!
I went into this thing thinking "OK a Schanke vid and it has to be fun," but that was basically it. Now in watching what clips I do have I'm starting to get an idea of what I want the theme of the vid to be. I'm either gonna call it "Don Schanke: International Man of Mystery" or "The Ego and the Id" which is the title I'm mostly leaning towards. Oh and it's to the tune of the remixed version of Fatboy Slim's "Rockafella Skank". Since it's like 6 minutes long I have cut it down to somewhere between 2 1/2 and 3 minutes but that's no big deal.
I just like how it's shaping up and I've only clipped about 10 of the 26 episodes I've earmarked. There are plenty of nuggets still awaiting like "Partners of the Month" but right now "Hunters" and "Dead Issue" are huge sources of amusement as is "For I Have Sinned". Schanke in the Raven is definitely the Id portion of the vid.
Heck I even got Nick in there doing his quasi celebratory dance at from the tag in "Dead Issue" at the precinct picnic. "Schanke's Scorchers"
Once I actually get into editing for effectiveness and trimming the clips even more I'll probably be pounding my head against the wall but hey that's part of the fun isn't it.
