Way back when I was using WMM (haha yes, I remember) I made this vid. I have promised myself for the last couple of years that I would go back and 'redo' with higher quality source, fix those nagging technical faults (no thanks WMM) and change those clips choices that always got to me every time I rewatched it.  Now it's done and here it is, shinier and better. There's a faiir few scenes that I've changed but the essence of the orignal vid remain.  Something that I just had to do.

Thanks alot. I've Peter Gabriel a few times now for whedonverse - but this song felt so much like 'Serenity' I couldn't not use it. Pleased you enjoyed it.

Wow. This is high quality stuff--well timed, crisp footage, deft use of effects. You took shots that have been used many times before and managed to make them feel unique. Color me impressed.

I meant to ask you in my original comment on this vid but I forgot and then debated whether or not I should come back and ask--what program do you use and is it available as freeware? I've made one vid so far using WMM. I want to make more, but I'm hesitant to do so using that program.

I don't mind you asking at all! I currently use ULEAD 11 but it's not freeware unfortunately. A very popular choice amongst vidders is Sony Vegas in it's various forms. You can get free trial for it and probably for the current version of ULEAD too.

I used WMM for 4 years and found lots of bolt on effects and transitions that made it do things that it really shouldn't ( it quite often let me know). The original of this vid was made in WMM but ultimately the lack of extra video tracks made me push onto a different editor. The [livejournal.com profile] vidding community here is great for links and advice for what to use.

Oh man. I've wanted to make a Firefly/Serenity vid to this specific song (Peter's one of my all-time favorite musicans) for ages. I'm glad you did it though, 'cause no way I could've made anything nearly this good. Bravo.

I love Peter Gabriels songs for vidding. I've used two more in other whedonverse vids and hope to do so again.

I came across this track back in 06, hoping to get an idea for Serenity, but so worried someone else would make it before I could get it 'out there'. It was a relief when I first posted the vid then, but I was never 100% happy with some issues in it.

However because I still love the song & idea so much I felt it was worth the remaster. I'm delighted you think I did the idea justice - that makes it all worthwhile. Thank you.

Amazing.

Honestly...I'm speechless.

Unreal. I loved rivers bar-fight scene and how it synced up with the junky tune.

Brilliant brilliant work.

Wow, thank you very much! The bar fight is probably my favourite part of the whole video, Summer moves which such graceful violence that it takes your breath away.

I really appreciate your feedback.

This is probably the best Firefly/Serenity video

Oh my, I shall print this out and frame it :) Thank you so much.

It's very true about Firefly and finding the right music for vids. It's not easy, but when I heard this one I felt it fit with the darker tone of Serenity and the theme of the film so well I could not help but do it.
