I downloaded the low version... Then watched it and downloaded the other one to keep on my hard drive.

Wah. I loved it. Everything just worked out so nicely. I wanted to hug all the guys, which is something that doesn't normally happen to me when watching fan vids. <3

Great job.

That's a great vid. I really liked how it showed the progression of all there and their lives in Atlantis. Excellent quality, too.
obfreakobfreak on August 19th, 2006 03:31 am (UTC)
Thanks, glad you liked it.
I cant take credit for the quality of it though, that has to go to by buddy lockstock :P
Thanks for the feedback

Hey no problem! Glad you liked it.
Thanks for watching :)

Loved your vid; really good choice of song and I thought the scenes you chose fit really well. I think it really showed the determination of the boys, that they have been through some really bad times but they've pulled through and been there for each other. Thanks :)
obfreakobfreak on August 19th, 2006 03:36 am (UTC)
Re: Wisemen
Double thanks.
I tried hard to get a mixture of the good and bad times, so It's good to hear that it all payed off. *g*
Thanks for watching
VictorianBreaker: chuckcosmonaut_elf on August 18th, 2006 08:23 pm (UTC)
*squees* This was awesome! I love how you got the videos to go over each other when, as I took it, they were thinking of each other... But I digress... It was fantastic!
obfreakobfreak on August 19th, 2006 03:39 am (UTC)
Hehe Thanks!
That effect took me for ages, but Yay it worked!
Thats the effect I was going for, so Im so glad to hear it worked :P
Thanks for watching

I have only have one word: AWESOME!

I LOVE this song and I LOVE this video! GREAT job! This one will go into the folder of vids that I watch a million times!
obfreakobfreak on August 19th, 2006 03:43 am (UTC)
Wow thanks!
It's great to hear you liked it so much
shadowcat2000 on August 19th, 2006 02:19 am (UTC)
Downloading. Can't wait to watch.

Absolutely brilliant. Great editing between song lyrics and clips. Plus I do like that song LOL...

obfreakobfreak on August 20th, 2006 08:43 am (UTC)
Thanks very much.
I really like that song and I'm glad it fit so well
Kathnakedwesley on August 19th, 2006 02:06 pm (UTC)
Cool song! I like how you mirrored the 'alone' parts with each of them and that you included the little 'smile' moments when they're boys having fun.
obfreakobfreak on August 20th, 2006 08:45 am (UTC)
It took me forever to do those 'alone' parts. In particular Carson, and it was getting hard to find clips with Sheppard and Beckett. (Thankyou season 3!)
Glad to hear that it all worked out in the end.
Thanks :)

Great vid obfreak ! You have a good editing style. Love everthing about your music vid, especially the John-Carson, John-Rodney, Carson-Rodney banter! I wonder if you´ve ever considered of making a McKay-Ronon or McKay-Teyla Vid? I´m always eager to see the unusual pairs! ;-)
obfreakobfreak on August 20th, 2006 08:50 am (UTC)
Thanks very much, I'm glad you liked it.
I have actually thought of doing a Ronon-McKay video... don't know where that plan went *goes in search* I think I couldn't get hold of the particular song i was thinking of using. The problem with that, is trying to find enough clips. In particular Rodney and Teyla. With any luck this season will provide us with a few moments *crosses fingers*
Anyways, we'll have to see but thanks very much for watching and taking the time to comment :D

Oh. My. God. I love your vids in general but this is your best yet! Absolutely outstanding! I'm off to watch it again, and then pimp it at stargategenrec
obfreakobfreak on August 20th, 2006 09:02 am (UTC)
Hey Derry,
Thanks very much. Glad you liked it :P
Hehehe thanks for the rec too and the feedback.
Hopefully with this new program of mine, I can keep improving
snoopoony on August 20th, 2006 06:24 pm (UTC)
This was AWESOME, but I'm sure lots of people already told you this ;-)

dossierdossier on August 20th, 2006 09:34 pm (UTC)
That's a great video. The clips were paced appropriately (gorgeous dissolves, too), well-chosen and relevant to the lyrics, and the song choice is excellent. I've never heard it (or the artist, but I don't get out much) but I love it! thanks for creating this!
obfreakobfreak on August 21st, 2006 05:23 am (UTC)
I'm glad it turned out ok. This new program im using is great for dissolves, so Im lucky :P
I just love that song, and the first time I heard it I was thinking off the guys *g*
Thanks very much for the feedback, It's always great to recieve
pollyrepeatpollyrepeat on August 21st, 2006 02:21 am (UTC)
I liked this a lot! I don't think I've ever seen a vid focusing on all three of these guys. Thanks for sharing this.
obfreakobfreak on August 21st, 2006 05:26 am (UTC)
Come to think of it, I dont think I have seen any other video with just the three of them, which is a shame, cause they are by far my favourite :P
I dont think Carson gets enough mention in the SGAMV world, so I always look for places to put him.
Thanks for watching, Im glad you liked it
nonniemous on August 21st, 2006 02:54 am (UTC)
Awesome, just awesome! Love how you worked in each of the guys' nadir (so far in the series) and yeah, taking care of your frineds is the thing you need to do, especially in the Pegaus Galaxy.

obfreakobfreak on August 21st, 2006 05:29 am (UTC)
Thankyou *g*
Sholiosholio on August 21st, 2006 05:44 am (UTC)
I really liked this one! It's like all my favorite clips in one video, and very well done! Thank you for sharing it.
obfreakobfreak on August 22nd, 2006 01:51 am (UTC)
Thanks, glad you liked it.
Yeah i have to agree, a lot of my favourite clips are in here, but i guess if any clip has one or more of the guys in it, it's up as a new favourite :P
sealie: the guysjimandblair on August 21st, 2006 10:29 am (UTC)
Hi, I came here on my mate Kloste's rec and she's right this is *good*. I like the progression of the storyline and the clips that you use really match both the story and the choice of music (e.g. the lyrics). I'm going to put this in my saved folder. The bleeding (I don't know the technical term -- I just enjoy watching vids I don't make them) when Beckett's introspective and depressed with the other images superimposed works really well.



obfreakobfreak on August 22nd, 2006 01:55 am (UTC)
Thanks, wow its really cool how fast the word seems to be spreading on this vid, i couldn't be more thrilled that so many people like it :)
good to see my new experiments with the fade, etc. is paying off, thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it
nikkih27nikkih27 on August 21st, 2006 05:08 pm (UTC)
Awesome video! Love the friendship between these guys!!

Perfect song!

Hi!!! It's me, Maggie!!! I finally got around to becoming a member of livejournal! YAY!!! However, I ran into a problem! I would love to watch your new vid 'Wisemen' but you changed your format to AVI!!! I don't have anything to support that format! ARGH!!! Is there any way you can post it in the WMV format that you used to use! I absolutely love your music videos, and I would hate not to be able to see them anymore! Especially since I am now a member of livejournal! Boohoo!!! I hope to hear from you soon, cause I really want to see our beloved Sheppard, Beckett, and McKay in this new music vid you have created; which I'm sure is a masterpiece like all your other vids! Hee Hee!!! Can't wait to hear from you, LOL!!!
Callumlockstock_ on August 22nd, 2006 01:46 am (UTC)
Re: HELP!!!

download this, it wont mess with anything else on your computer, it will just allow you to watch .avi's and .mkv's with no hassles.

Oh, wow, words fail me to describe just how much I love this video. It's so rare that a vid comes along that will change the way I view the characters, but this one just seems to add so many more layers and dimensions to their friendship than what I'd seen before. As a devout McShep shipper, I never really paid much attention to John and Rodney's interactions with Carson, but the way you captured all three of them just provokes this amazing emotional response in me that puts a lump in my throat. The combination of the editing, effects, and song come together perfectly, and this vid is definitely one to put in my favorites folder. Kudos, you've got real talent! Do you mind if I friend you?
obfreakobfreak on August 29th, 2006 09:46 am (UTC)
Wow thankyou!
Its always such a great pleasure to hear people praise your work. I always feel that carson is very under used in the MV community. He always seems to get left out, and i have always wanted to do one with the three of them (their my favourite characters and by the sounds of it a lot of other people's favourites too) I was just waiting for the right song :P I have to admit, finding clips with Sheppard and Carson was a real effort, made a lot easier by season 3.
Thanks very much for the feedback, and sure you can friend me, as long as I can friend you too. I love some of your videos. And hey, the more friends the better :D
