Audiofic : Shot, Brown Cortina, Edited by Ferntree 
5th-Sep-2009 10:38 am
I'm not sure what to tag this as... but seeing as it's both fictional and audio, I'm going with audiofic. I've edited together a little scene using soundclips from the actual show (and a couple of short ones from Ashes to Ashes). I tried to make it sound like it could've been ripped straight off the DVD. Even though the dialogue is lifted from the shows, it is all edited out of context so shouldn't contain any spoilers.

Title: Shot
Rating: Brown Cortina (For what could be construed as character death)
Format: Mp3, 1.54mb, 1.40 mins
Warnings: Angst aplenty. Could be interpreted as character death, though this wasn't the intention - it just came out sounding like that! Feel free to imagine he lives - I do!
Summary: Sam gets hurt during a job- mucho angsto ensues.

This is such a clever idea! The clips you've chosen work so well together, it's almost heart-wrenching to listen to it.

Hey, this was really good! Great editing, too. :)

Thanks very much :). I'm so pleased people seem to think it works!

It's obvious how much work you put into this. I love the concept. It came together so well. I hope you do more! This is so good. The editing is flawless.

Aww thanks very much! I was only planning to do the 'Stay with me, Sammy' part (which would've ended up at about 3 seconds), but I got a bit wrapped up in the moment haha XD. Glad you liked it!

That was amazing! I loved it!
It's so incredibly well edited, and my love for angst only made me love it more!
You've done a brilliant job. I enjoyed every second of it, and plan to listen to it many more times.

Thankyou :D

It was only meant to be like 5 words long, but it sort of... grew lol!

:O Wow, that was incredible! Well done you!
5th-Sep-2009 06:43 pm (UTC)

This is brilliant! Such a clever idea and so well done. As others have remarked above, the editing is brilliant, both in terms of the smoothness of the transitions and the clips you chose, which tell the story perfectly. (I'm so pleased you chose the "I can't, luv" clip!). The use of the breathing, the heart-beat and the monitor was just fantastic. Love it.

Oh, and if you manage to find the bit in the out-takes where John mis-read the script and said "For Christ's sake, Gene, just take me NOW!" I'd love to see what you could do with that.

(What? No, I'm sure it's in there somewhere. Got to be. *nods*)

HAHA I thought you were being serious for a minute then. I was all 'WHAT? Where does he say that????' Listening to all the Sam grunting and groaning while editing did make it cross my mind... I'd have to come up with a good excuse if my mum heard it, walked in and asked what I was doing though O_O.
5th-Sep-2009 04:10 pm (UTC)
That was very smoothly done. Terribly impressed.
5th-Sep-2009 04:23 pm (UTC)
Great choice of clips and great editing. A little sad to listen to.
5th-Sep-2009 04:33 pm (UTC)
Wow, this was really well done. The editing was brilliant, and the angst almost made me tear up. Well done!
5th-Sep-2009 06:35 pm (UTC)
Aww thanks. It was a lot of fun to put together :)
5th-Sep-2009 04:55 pm (UTC)
Normally I would have passed on this as it involves character death but I was very curious about the format so I took a listen. Yes, a little bit of tragic, but technically very well done! Congratulations on that, I cannot imagine trying to put something like this together. Really outstanding work!

5th-Sep-2009 06:33 pm (UTC)
Thanks XD

I was unsure what to say about the character death, as some people may not interpret it that way (I intended it to end with Sam just passing out, but I couldn't find a way of making it sound like he hadn't copped it!) Most of it's left up to your imagination, but I thought I'd better warn of it anyway. :)
5th-Sep-2009 06:11 pm (UTC)
Wow, that was really good! Well edited and very intense. Me likey! :)

Thanks! I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

Thanks! :D

I had to go through the script to find where the right character said the right thing in the right way, then find it in the episode, extract the audio and then try to blend it into the backing track. I'm glad you liked the heartbeats... they were one of the things I was initially unsure about.

I agree... I'm enjoying Ashes to Ashes (still haven't seen the last 4 episodes yet), but it just isn't Life on Mars! I was hoping for a lot more scenes where Gene stares at that photo of Sam on his office wall... or for Gene to mention him a bit more - There doesn't seem to have been a lot of that so far. Maybe he's just holding it all in like a MAN! LET IT OUT, GENE! WE MISS HIM TOO! >_<

Haha I did think about it... I sort of have an idea that could maybe work... We'll see!
5th-Sep-2009 08:44 pm (UTC)
This is really...WOW! How long did it take you to make this?
5th-Sep-2009 09:48 pm (UTC)
Haha a lot longer than I'd originally planned! I sort of lost track of time while making it, but it was all done in one afternoon, evening... and half the night @__@

This was a great idea and wonderfully executed. The editing was great and this was very moving. ♥ ♥
