I've started working on the Martha/Ten vid again, and can I just say that oh my goodness the camera LOVES Freema. A lot. I mean, I knew that but messing around with the footage without the distraction of dialogue and plot just...damn. Gorgeous is kind of an understatement. So, anyway I think I've got it under control conceptually at this point, in that talking out what I've got so far with heresluck
helped me clarify where I'm trying to go with it, and at this point it's a matter of filling out all the blank spaces (of which there are MANY, *headdesks*) and getting the clips to fit together right.
This is also new territory for me in terms of POV I think, which is interesting and making me think harder as I work it. I've done single POV vids before but they are generally about the *other* person in the vid, from the view of the "speaker". Lullaby is in many ways about Neil from Todd's perspective. Forever Young is Richie as Duncan sees him. Running Down a Dream and Moons of Jupiter are more about telling *us*, the audience, about the main "speaker" of the vid. Whatever it Takes might be closer, but it's a dual POV and the audience for what they are saying is much broader than each other. And, of course, Swing Down is third person. This one...and I love heresluck
for pulling this out and making me realize this is what I was doing...this one is Martha, speaking directly to Ten, about *herself*. And that's *tricky* y'all. I worry about pulling it off. I fear there will be much "Vidding is HARD" whining until it's done.
