Nick & Nat

The Rockafella Skank (Mulder's Urban Takeover Remix)
Artist: Fatboy Slim
Fandom: Forever Knight
Vidder: abby82
Download: Sendspace (44MB, WMV) or YouTube.
Length: 3:46
Summary: The Ego and the Id; Schanke celebration video.
Notes: This is actually my first FK fan vid but the second to be completed. It's a long song and I've already trimmed out 2 minutes but I fell it's still about 40 seconds too long. Hopefully in the future I'll be able to trim down the song and the vid some more. I'd hate for Schank to overstay his welcome.

So this is the long-anticipated Schanke vid! It is great fun. I particularly liked the use of shots in which Schanke looks uncomfortable, such as with "Mistress Tamara" in "False Witness," and under-commented-upon shots, like eating on the way into the apartment in, I think, "Last Act." Thank you very much for sharing.

You're probably right about trimming the link for more general audiences. Every shot, assembled in such a fun way, is excellent for a bona-fide FoD or generally devoted FK fan, but for anyone who has backed off a ways, or -- tragically -- just never gotten Schanke, they might find themselves wandering after a while.

I was going to say that I know of a few fun, cheery FK vids from the old days (on VHS), but on checking, I discovered I was mistaken! The lighter vids I had in mind were uniformly multi-fandom: including FK, but not FK-only. Huh. Are we such a grim bunch? Many of the vids are determined and happy, hoping for triumph over the characters' struggles, but not so much "fun" or light.

Yay! I had loads of fun making it.

Even I found my attention wandering off at times and it's my vid, lol. It's back to my Audiocity program to see if I can further trim the music.

Perhaps not so much "grim" but FK fans certainly have a healthy appreciation for angst that seems to come with the territory. I guess it comes with the way TPTB approached the series thematically and visually. I was clipping the Nick Knight Rick Springfield movie recently and flashbacks aside, they essentially use the same script. However, the Nick Knight movie is so much lighter in execution. Springfield's Nick has his share of angst but not to the extent that GWD's does. I often wonder if the actor's performance informed the tone of the show or if the tone of the show informed the actor's performance. I imagine someone vidding to a hypothetical Nick Knight series would probably not be as dark as FK.
