New Fanvid

A while back, someone requested a fanvid to ELO's "Mr. Blue Sky," which actually got me thinking about another ELO album, Time. It's a concept album about a guy who gets transported to the future, but I dug it out and listened to it again and I thought the song "Twilight" would apply equally to someone who's been transported to the past. It's got kind of an '80s feel to it, but the lyrics were just too perfect to pass up. Particularly the line that goes, "It's either real or it's a dream, there's nothing that is in between."

Hope you enjoy.

Nicely done! I enjoyed this. Shall poke a few friends to come see it, too.

Wow, thanks. I used QuickTime to extract the clips from the show and iMovie to put them together. Both came installed on my Mac, though I had to upgrade to QuickTime Pro (which is only about $30) to get the cut and paste features. This is just the second vid I've done.

It makes such a difference when you know the song I find - and a lot of the music vids I've seen so far for LoM havent 'touched' me because I was new to the song.

I really enjoyed this though - thanks for sharing.

excellent. Very appropriate cuts and pacing with the music.

Now I crave some Life on Mars.

You win for using ELO :D it was nicely cut, with good scene selection.

Brilliant - a wonderful choice of music with totally apposite lyrics with a great selection of clips.

Wow, that was excellent! Gonna point my FL to this!

If you're up to doing another ELO Sam-based fanvid ... "The Way Life's Meant To Be" would be kinda cool.

Excellent vid! I'll be linking it in my LJ because more of my friends should see it -- and the show -- dammit!
