Oh hi. I'm new here. *wave wave*fandom: DC Comicstitle: Redemptionmusic: Fallen - Sarah McLachlanvidder: Cephied Variable (cephiedvariable)charaters: Hal Jordan (and pretty much everyone who's been important to him; ie: Ollie, Carol, his father, er, Sinestro?)running time: 3:48Oh, this video is so cheesy. Like, I'm not even kidding. Y'know- I kind of, sort of promised myself I'd never make a video to a modern, mainstream song but in this case I'll forgive myself because 1) it's *Sarah McLachlan*, who is something like my favorite musical artist of all time and 2) It's *Hal Jordan* who is something of a lame, squishy guy so it's halfways acceptable to make a totally lame, squishy and cheesy video based on his spetacular screw ups! :DBesides, the song was *nagging* me everytime it came on my playlist. I feel like I've exorcized some creative demons or something.So what's this video about?Well, in short it's about Hal. Original Green Lantern of sector 2814, The Guardian's proverbial "Golden Boy", co-founder of the JLA... but mostly, it's about how Hal Jordan fucked up that one time and nearly destroyed the universe! And then spent the next decade worth of comics attempting to redeem himself, only to be saved by the fanboy agenda! It's also about how Hal never really *was* as okay as everyone thought in the first place. Or something.I used panels mostly from the original Parallax arc in Green Lantern v2 (47-50) and J.M. DeMatteis' Spectre series (because, oh, did I adore Hal as the Spectre), but there's stuff from Final Night, Soul War, Green Arrow and misc. Mini Series and Specials in there as well (Secret Origins ftw?)LYRICSHeaven bend to take my handAnd lead me through the fireBe the long awaited answerTo a long and painful fightTruth be told I tried my bestBut somewhere along the wayI got caught up in all there was to offerAnd the cost was so much more than I could bearThough I tried, I've fallenI have sunk to lowI messed up better, I should knowSo don't come round' here and tell me "I told you so"We all begin with good intentsWhen love was raw and youngWe believed that we could change ourselvesThe past could be undoneBut we carried on our back the burdenThat time always revealsIn the lonely light of morningAnd the wound that would not healIt's the bitter taste of losing everything I held so dearThough I tried, I've fallenI have sunk to lowI messed up better, I should knowSo don't come round' here and tell me "I told you so"Heaven bend to take my handI've nowhere left to turnI'm lost to those I thought were friendsTo everyone I knowOh, they turn their head embarassed, pretend that they don't seeThat it's one misstep and slip before you know itAnd there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed...Download (Megaupload)A YouTube link... eventually. :P
OMG! Very Cool. I just started trying out making vids and I know what a pain in the rear it is. It is a beautiful piece and perfect music.
