Title : Spitfire
Fandom : Firefly & Serenity
Music : Spitfire by the Prodigy
Length : 3:34
Description: Zoe Washburne, her past and her present. Just don't mess with her or her man, 'cause you know that she can. Very action oriented view of Zoe
Download tiny WMV zipped 16mB       Med AVI 92mB Zipped    or HQ AVI 160mB Zipped.   Embedded under cut below.

  Vidder notes: I mused when looking through the source (with much sadness) how much more we could have seen of her had we even had a even full season, not just the kickass stuff but the tender moments and interaction with the rest of the crew. Also the song?  most of the time I pick songs that even after the project is done I can easily listen to them straight away. I think the headphones very likely make it worse but this one? I'd be pleased not to hear it for a month or so....   Anyhow that aside and I hope you enjoy. I didn't post lyrics this time, they're very repetative and quite clear.  Feedback is loved.

Embed here


ETA : Youtube have changed their embedding and it looks to be cutting off half the vid.   Might be best to watch at youtube. I'll upload it elsewhere and switch embeds.

Thank you so much! And isn't that always the way - deleting your icon just as you could use it. Spike Big Bad is a great replacement though.

Thanks very much - I wanted it to have that dusty western feel to it so I am pleased you liked the colouring.

AWESOME VID!!!!!! Could Zoe be any more kickass??? I love the coloring and the hitting (or shooting) things on that heavy beat. Yay!

Thank you. It's only when you get all the clips of Zoe together that you realise just how unbelievably kickass she is, plus great dry sense humour too. Glad you enjoyed it - appreciate the feedback :)

This is most excellent--the editing is sharp, and the message is clear: Zoe is BADASS. :D

A Zoe vid!!! My life is complete!

I loved your editing and while the song was repetitive, it worked very well for Zoe & her badassness.

I know - not many Zoe vids out there, which is a shame as she is such a great character.

I'm glad you enjoyed the vid, thanks for the feedback

Here via a rec from [livejournal.com profile] sabaceanbabe and this is rhythmic awesome. Zoe's so great and gets overlooked a lot, I think, by fandom.

Thank you :) It's a shame she does get forgotten so I thought I would address the balance a little.

Haha cool icon!

I love vidding Firefly and Serenity but it always makes me a little melancholy on what could have been. Ah well, Zoe's there kicking butt to improve my mood! Thanks so much for the squee and I'm pleased you love it.

I very much enjoyed this video! I loved the monochromatic tones, the editing was done very, very well.

Zoe's so awesome. ♥

Yay! Firefly! Zoe! She's one of my favorite fictional female characters ever. One of the only ones who is super tough and badass without being either overly sexualized or turned into a totally rude b*tch. Great capture.

Absolutely! She has a wonderful dry wit too but that was a little difficult to convey here. She is very much strong without the need to be mean. Glad you enjoyed it :)

Great! - and thank you for the feedback. It's good to go back to the show and see how great it was in such a few episodes.

lol - have to agree with Sho - even this song I can cope with listening to when it comes with the vid! AWESOME
man, have to go watch the whole series again now. Love the grading - fits so well with the style of the show and you're absolutely right - we were cheated out of so much character development, especially in the 'second' characters - Wash and Zoe and Shepherd Book.
Still, if wishes were horses...

I feel a little bad inflicting the song on the vid viewing public (and myself) but hopefully I will be redeemed with the next music selection... I know it will be different that's for sure!

Enjoy the rewatch of the show - I tend to dig it out the dvds every year just to wallow in it's greatness and to vent at Fox. I know there are comics but it isn't quite the same as seeing it for real. Glad you thought it was awesome :)

Hells yah. I love how by the end you have a ton of sympathy for her emotionally as well as admiration for her kickassness.

Thank you, I wanted to show that she wasn't just about kicking butt, she was defending herself, husband and 'family' too. Shame we only had the chance to see a little of that in the show *curses Fox*

Awesome! I really love the feel of this, although I can see how listening to this song over and over would be painful. *g* I love how you captured not only Zoe's toughness, but also her humor and loyalty and love.

Thank you so much - and yes it did start to wear after a while... Actually considering there were only those few episodes we did get a fairly well rounded view of her character and it's probably those aspects of her (rather than the kickassness) that I loved best.

Absolutely amazing! I adore the contrast between sepia coloring of old westerns and rapid MTV-style editing. Perfect!

I love this vid. She's usually in the background of the show, being the support, but the vid showcases her perfectly. Suddenly amkes me really wish there'd been more show just so she could've had more of a focus.

Thank you - glad you loved the vid and yes very much so about more focus on the show. We definitely had plenty of 'action' from Zoe but I also loved her dry wit and sense of duty so it would have been great to see that explored. Then I feel that way about all the characters really. So much potential so little episodes.

That was very nice. Love the song choice and you really did Zoe justice, showing not only her action side but also her loving, caring side.

Would be great if you could post it in the [livejournal.com profile] dreaming_ncolor comm :)
