Hi :), well, I have a new Smallville video, Rain, a Chlark Story

This video is a Secret Valentine gift to simplytoopretty   She gave some prompts... and.. since I can't keep a secret with good friends... she even game me the song ;).

What can I say... I'm weak... I did try to use misdirection... but I don't think it worked.. I think she knew it was me making her gift since day one... oh well :D

The song is Rain by by Patty Griffin.

I hope you are going to enjoy watching it, any comment of how it ended up it will be most welcomed :). This video was a lot of work :) I think I have.. I don't know, at least 5 versions of it.

Here it is:



Hugs!! Be well Monica

Very impressive vid Monica. I liked the song choice a lot and you used some great chlark scenes to express the concept of the song and to match all the lyrics so effectively. Awesome job on the whole vid :)

Awesome stuff on the opening of the vid. The scenery shots with the aged film look and the black and white chlark scene from Blank made for a powerful opening to the vid. Nice job with the follow up scene of the chlark hug. That was a great match for the “heart beating close to mine” lyric. Same thing with the next scene with the “walls I won’t climb” lyric at 47. Those two scenes made for a very effective contrast of the way Chlark interacts with each other.

I really liked what you did with the first chorus section. The black and white rain scene at 1:18 was very nicely utilized there. Excellent job with the jimmy stuff starting at 1:49 and continuing till 2:23. That was very effective and again was a great lyric and scene match. Again awesome scene selection with the black and white funeral scene at 2:24. That went really well with the tone of the song there and the b/w made it a very evocative looking scene. Very cool run of chlark scenes during the following instrumental section till 3:14. I especially liked the way you used the scenes for Arrival of the two of them at the FOS. The hug scene from Truth was another good choice. Awesome job on the final chorus section. Again really impressive job on the scene selection throughout. The scene of him saving Chloe and the hug afterwards was a particularly nice touch. And I really enjoyed the way you ended it with the scene from Legion. Very awesome vid Monica!

Oh Keith :D, you so rock so much :D.

My promps for this video where black and white, dark and angsty music and clip montage.. I wanted to use as much as I could, and the song is kind of angsty right?? :D

I wanted to create an idea of time and maybe... a rainy atmosphere, you know, that's why I aged the first clips, thanks a lot for noticing this!!! Also, wow, I can't believe you saw the matching lyrics with the hug scene, I had hoped it worked and is awesome that you noticed!!!

I showed Jimmy only 'cause of that lyric of the song went so well with Clark expression in that scene!! I loved it :D

I'm so glad you noticed all the small details, you are amazing and you always show it :), thank you!! Hugs, hugs, hugs!!!

Be well, Monica
