THIS VIDEO. UGH!


I had to double check when I made my video 'Blank Page' because this video has apparently been in my WIP folder for almost a year now.
*hangs head*
I'll make a video, complete it, and then go back to work on this one, and over the span of ALMOST A YEAR, my vidding style gradually changes, so everytime I went back to work on it, I would CHANGE IT ALL! I am not joking when I say that I have 6 clips of the same 35 seconds of this video, redone, over, and over and over. In fact I may upload them later just to show you how much this video has changed from the original one I started.

and guess what! I still don't flippin like it. There are parts I like, I just don't know. UGH I DONT KNOW!

and Jamie! beautiful Jamie, I honestly don't know how she puts up with me sometimes. For real. She is like, the best person ever in the whole entire world.

So this is for [livejournal.com profile] aerintine  as an early birthday present, and to [livejournal.com profile] angearia as a late birthday present. And to all the wonderful ladies at [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy because you all left me such wonderful feedback and I haven't commented much on anyones stuff! I'm a horrible commenter! I should be shunned forever.
 
I've been making a lot of Community videos lately, but rest assured I will always and forever make Spuffy vids, for they are my heart. 
 
I had originally planned on making a video to this entire song, then I got frustrated and made a vidlet to it. But I couldn't let the song go. 
So here it is, at least 3 times the length of Blank Page. 
Also, I'm happy to announce that in 2010, I managed to finish 10 videos, halfway through 2011 and I'm already at 13! Here's hoping I didn't just jinx myself!! :D
 
 
 
 
Title: Lead Me To The Truth
Song: White Blank Page by Mumford & Sons
Description: 100+ years, and all roads lead to Buffy.

Let me make sure I understand, you don't like this??! *shakes her head*

The video is absolutely amazing, honey. The song is fantastic and your vid compliments it in every way possible. 1:10-1:25 is pure brilliance, imo.

Thank you!! ♥

and its funny you mention that part of the vid as being your favorite cause that was part of the one part I kept changing over and over again. :P

This is so gorgeous and perfect, I love it so much. I have to agree with [livejournal.com profile] evangelin1202 that my favorite parts was 1:10-1:25, but the whole vid was awesome. It really fit Spike's POV. :)

Would you mind if I linked this video on Tumblr, with credit of course, or are you planning on doing that yourself, so I can reblog it? I just want to spread this to my followers, because I'm sure people would love it. :)

Saying your vid is wonderful is almost unnecessary because they always are wonderful, but if this is a vid you're not quite happy with . . . if only all the stuff I wasn't quite happy with was this good! I love it, of course, especially the transition to vamp!William everyone's mentioned when the song goes "RAGE!" and we see William in the fire, but the Spuffy parts really fit your description of the vid. All roads for Spike do lead to Buffy.

thank you!

again, I think I'm gonna upload just for fun, all the parts I kept changing.

This video has taken me forever to finish, which is why I think, no matter what, I'm gonna be just a little unsatisfied with it.
This is such a Spike POV song to me, and I'm glad you think I made it work.
Mumford & Sons is like a drug to my Spuffy brain.

Oh my gosh, Anne. This is amazing. Seriously.

At first I was a little thrown because the style does seem a little different from your other vids (something about the way the scene cuts are--faster maybe? or maybe it's that the scenes aren't very actiony but the cuts are fast? I don't know.)--but I think it's brilliant. But once I sank into it, I realized that style just works so well with the music choice.

And, man, I'll echo everyone else--the Spike flashback section is simply magnificent. My favorite moment might be he and Cecily sitting on the couch, and then just him, the cut is seamless and Cecily just disappears. That's so so lovely. And the rest of the flashback, too with BoxerRebellion!Spike and SubwayTrain!Spike.

You're wonderful. I'm terrified that Community is going to steal you away from Buffy forever. And I love Community--so don't get me wrong. I love your Community vids--BUT. Man. You just do these kids so much justice. What would I do without you?!

YES! my vidding style has drastically changed, and I'm constantly trying to figure out what it's changed into. When I first started vidding, I was a huge beat editor, but I've strayed from that in way, because it's kind of predictable, and I want my videos to be different even if they're all about the same thing. I still don't think I can describe my style at all, but I know that in this video, I used the song to tell a story, so not all the cuts are where you would expect them to be I guess. I dont even know! lol

hahaha! Community will never steal me away from my kids! I love the show, and it had honestly been a while since something else attracted my vidder brain, but I'll always come back to my kids, ALWAYS! I've been vidding for 7 years now, and Buffy/Spuffy has and always will be my constant :)

And the Buffy community itself is amazing! I don't know what I would do without the support I get from people like you!

I'm gonna stop typing now before I get all schmoopy and cry like a girl.

I LOVE IT.

I think my favorite part (which it's also my favorite in the song) is the first "swelling rage" and then the tumble of Spike's history comes into focus. It's very powerful. I especially loved how you transitioned to the flashbacks with the scanning shot of the alley (from OMWF) going dark and then switching to the carriages.

You've started doing something really interesting with abrupted action -- where you stop right as Buffy and Spike make contact, touch, like the final force of the action isn't shown. It communicates this sense of getting lost in contact, where my imagination finishes the action, it really jolts the viewer to engage with the story you're telling.

I loved this too! I was gonna say this! I love how it's like both locations have an archway framing them at first. And the carriage with that change in the music is just perfect.

It is the songs fault!

hehe, I didn't even realize I was doing that! I think one of these days I'll need to sit down and figure out what the hell my style is. Maybe it's all different depending on the video, and therefore my brain will always be confuzed!

I'm so glad you liked this! I felt so bad for missing your birthday!! I don't even know where I was! *headdesk*
Happy Birthday! ♥

Awww, you're so sweet!

I wouldn't worry too much about figuring out your style -- you seem to be very natural, like you're tapping into something here. Just let it rock, bb. ♥

And thank you so much for the prezzie! I was having a bad time of it last night and this really helped. *hugs*

The faith you guys have in me makes me want to run in fear and hug everyone at the same time. YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW! lol

Um, it made me cry, so I'd say it's amazing. Or I'm excessively emotional? Or both. You rock.

My heart tis grown a bulge in't... this is perfection. Seriously. I would never have quite though of Mumford for BtVS vids but honestly, the line "But tell me now where was my fault, in loving you with my whole heart?" Why did I not see it before??

and yes! that line was the driving factor in making this video :)

This is so very beautiful. I adore "Blank Page," and it's really neat to see a vid of the whole song as well. I think my favorite parts are the Dru/Spike montage (that plus the parts with his mom and Cecily really drive home that Buffy is not the first woman for whom he gave up everything- the song is just so Spike, not just Spike-in-relation-to-Spuffy) and the fast Buffy/Spike montage at the end that shows them looking content with each other.

Do you mind if I friend you?

thank you!
the song is just so Spike
I thought so too. There are a couple of mumford & sons songs that seem as if they were written from Spikes perspective.

friend away! I believe we already share a lot of mutual friends already so I will friend you back!
YAY FOR FRIENDS! :)

LOVE the final version! You are awesomesocks. Thank you also for the dedication, bb. You are so good to me.

Crap I have to work in the morning and I'm still so jet-lagged. SIGH. Guess I'm off to bed. This was a perfect before-bed snack.

Love you to the moon.
