Weir Vid  
I made this Video especially for my mate Federica. She is just incredibly awesome and loves Torri so I had to do it. With her kind permission I'm going to post it up so everyone can see.

I know a few people have been asking me to do a Weir vid so I hope everyone likes it.
Thanks to my Beta Lockstock. It looks so much better now mate thanks :D

Song: Stand in the Rain
Artist: Superchick
Character: Elizabeth Weir
Clips: Seasons 1-3
Summary: A Leader must stand up against anything that comes at them, even when everthing is falling down around them.
Category: Tribute, General, Action
File Details: AVI 39.54


Note: If you cant get the sound to work though, try moving the timeline around for a bit, that will usually fix it up. I hope...

Yes, well hats what you get.

:P Bad Callum!

There should be more Weir vids! That was such a lovely vid of Weir. The lyrics were so appropriate for Weir. Especially "when everything is crashing down"!

I loved the end with all her smiles, then her expression as she leaves Atlantis with her colleagues appearing at her side. Great vid!

obfreakobfreak on April 25th, 2007 08:22 am (UTC)

Oh really? thats funny. I have never actually heard this song before, but it popped up on the radio on day and I had to try to remember it. Glad it all worked out though.

Thanks for making this awesome Weir tribute vid. Very dynamic. Anthemic, even, which is a great way to showcase a character that's so "thinky" and doesn't get enough credit for her role on Atlantis. (Must be pretty obvious I love this character too!) I'll rec this on my LJ.
obfreakobfreak on April 25th, 2007 08:29 am (UTC)
No problemo dude
Thanks for the comment and thanks for the rec too :P

Just loved it :D

Re: wow! just wow!

Hmmm thats interesting. This whole sound thing is really confusing me :S
I just want you to know who I am...takumachi on April 24th, 2007 02:09 pm (UTC)
I love it! It's a awesome video and kudos for it being about Weir. I haven't really seen that many about her that are good. XD
obfreakobfreak on April 25th, 2007 08:31 am (UTC)

:O Are you serious? How the hell did I manage that?! *is partially annoyed* What video did I send ya? Hahahaha actually that makes our conversation make a lot more sense for me now. I was wondering why you were going on about Carson and Rodney... and why you asked me about making a weir vid... that really confused me. LOL
Sorry about that. I really wanted you too see it first, but at least you have it now.

Hey ob, aka...Shari...

YAY! I finally know your real name & it starts with Shar - like mine! Go Go Mighty Shar-eses!!! ;) lol ;)

Anyhoo, you did a most illustriously wonderous & illuminating job on this here vid, dude! :) Bur then again ALL of your vids are spectacularly awesome! ;) so, why should this one be anything different. my fave parts of it: your mad awesome editing skillz, your adherence to the lyrics, & your literal clip choices that just TOTALLY FIT...

...like the one at the beginning, with the pairing of "She never slows down" with the part in no man's land (or was it allies?) where she totally blows by an official on her way to the Gate (one who looked like he was waiting for her to sign something right before she left for Earth), not even half-acknowledging her prescence. lol;) i LIKED that. A lot. ;) & having the "shadow" in the song be John from The Real World was a clever move too. :) i also LOVED the quick cuts & bisected/twofer shots that covered the "pain/drown" parts (1:45-1:50 & 2:33-2:37) & all her serious/action/angsty faces just after both sets. AND I also really dug the way you ended to, with Lizzie getting "face-time" with all the other main characters too (& only you could make their one-looks both show off their signature traits & show off the fact that, as a leader, Liz recalls them all on a truly individual basis)...

McKay as being giddy with science, Carson as being tender-hearted with all of his patients, Teyla being happy with her place among the earthers finally, Lorne with being like a happy-go-lucky school kid, Zelenka with being wistful (& possibly acting almost like a mirror image of herself?), Ronon still being a bit wary yet trying to blend in somwhat, Shep being dorky & cute (lol) & reassuring all in the same stead...AND finally Atlantis City herself as being somehow sad to see her go...

BUT - yeah - YOU ROCK!!! :)

And JEBUS, WOMAN! I swear! ;) You always seem to make me fall in love with characters that I don't even like at first. And yet after seeing your newest vid (if it features them), i'll all up on their band wagon begging for morefrom them!!! (I'm thinking of Rodney vs. your Rodney vids mostly, but Liz kinda fits into that category too, just to a lesser extent (cuz i usually like her only in conjunction with ronon or sheppard & never by herself).

And in case I haven't already made this apparent enough. You & your bloody awesome & utterly coolisimo vid have made a convert out of me in more ways than one! YAY!!! :)

The secret is out!
Hahahaha you make me laugh :P

Thanks very much mate. Wow what awesome feedback! This is great! Thanks so much. I love hearing stuff like this so thanks once again.
See its comments like this that makes all the long frustrating hours so worth it. Thanks.

Hahaha have I mentioned you make me laugh?
johnsheppardluv: smile even tho...johnsheppardluv on April 25th, 2007 01:36 am (UTC)
PS Loved the song choice too! Very haunting in a way. Yet also very Weir-like! :) Me likey mucho mucho much. :)

PPS Took the smaller filed version to save you some webspace space. :)

That was fabulous! That was by far the best Weir video I've see yet!
obfreakobfreak on April 25th, 2007 08:41 am (UTC)
Hey Thanks!
So happy you think so
celcool on April 25th, 2007 10:25 am (UTC)
OMG, I have literally tears in my eyes after watching this. Just awesome. Wow. Thanks to both of you!
