{vid} "My Skin" - Mentalist, light Cho/Jane

My first Mentalist vid! :O

Natalie Merchant's "My Skin" is a gorgeous, haunting song that's been on my mind for well over a year. When I started vidding again last week (thanks to a challenge on scifiland), I started thinking about what I might do for a Mentalist vid. After all, I have a program to transfer my dvd files at the moment and I have the lovely boxset so...

Initially it was going to be a "pure" Jane video but then I managed to track down some good scenes with Cho and Jane so I have some not-so-subtle hints for my OTP. ;) There did end up being someone of a story thread for the vid, but you may interpret it as you will.

Clips only use Season One

More "tech-y" notes: Made in Windows Live Movie Maker. This is a very simplified program with minimal editing capabilities. Also, the timeline is not numerically marked so it's difficult to go back into the middle to edit without screwing the rest of it up. :\ Basically this means that I work from beginning to end, doing my best with each section before going onto the next.

The only real problem I have with this vid is the quick cut from Jane to Cho during the lyrics "the sweetness." Darn. I didn't notice it early enough to inspire me to futz around and fix it.

Yey - mental vid! Love the song choice, going to have to track that one down now. Nice scenes and video, enjoyed watching this.

WMM - using it myself to make my scifiland vid and argh it's giving me nightmares - but must press on with what one has without having to pay out monies.

You have inspired me to get working on the MentalistVid Idea that I've had in my brain the last week or so.

Great job hun x

:3 I'm glad you liked it!

I love Natalie Merchant's music (and her work with 10,000 Maniacs.)

WLMM and WMM are separate entities. I recommend Windows Live MM b/c it has yet to freeze up on me. Not a lot of flexibility but if it works... who am I to complain? lol

I SO WANT TO SEE MORE MENTALIST VIDS! DO IT! (Oh, and soo I will have S2 dvds :o So then I should be able to make more.)

I really love the song, and you caught a lot of good Cho/Jane moments. *studies* It works well.
