Vid: Miles From Where You Are (Edward/Bella)  

Set The Fire To The Third Bar by Snow Patrol & Martha Wainwright
Created: November 2009
Summary: A New Moon Edward/Bella video that shows Bella's heartbreak and yearning for Edward. The chorus is the real reason I made the vid - it just screamed Bella in New Moon to me: "I'm miles from where you are. I'll lay down on the cold ground and I'll pray that something picks me up and sets me down in your warm arms." I hope you'll forgive the inconsistent clip quality, but I wanted to make use of a lot of the leaked NM footage, so that meant sacrificing HQ - hopefully the trade off was worth it ;)
Program: Sony Vegas [Special Thanks to newkidfan for her very insightful post about how she made her Blood Makes Noise vid! I used the dharma frame she provided and tested out some of her techniques. My vid is nowhere near the artistic quality of hers - I mean, come on, did you see how many layers she used! - but, it was nice to test out some of her methods.]

My friend shivered when she saw this. It's amazing.
I like how you combined all scenes. It's really good. :)

Hm... I don't usually put my vids on youtube - it's like waving your hands in the air and shouting "hey, copyright police, come and get me." Besides, my vids usually get flagged and removed within hours of posting. That being said, I'll try posting it for a brief period for you. BRB. I'll leave it up for a week or until they take it down ;P

Yup - tried to upload it and they immediately told me: "Your video, MilesFromWhereYouAre, may have content that is owned or licensed by UMG" - they disabled the audio :(
Sorry dude

Oh, it's really beautiful! And your music choice is perfect :) Repeating shoots of Bella in the meadow is my fav part 'cos it stressed the feeling of abandonment and yearning.

I also checked that post made bu newkidfan. It's always interesting to see how other people work. To tell you the truth, before reading that I thought I was to methodical and meticulous..lol
I don't make separate tracks for each colour unless I have many clips in one colour or I use any other effect too many times (which I don't). Foe example, even though I used Twilight and New Moon clips in one vid and separated them in 2 tracks, one for each source, it turned out that I still had to adjust the colouring for each clip...so I put them back in one track...lol She said it herself too - even though she separated coloured clips she changed the settings in each clip separately. Good thing is that Vegas 9 includes some of the effects she made on default which makes things much easier :)
My point is that you don't always need many layers to make a good vid but you can never have enough practice with various combinations of effects ;) She made a great atmosphere vid (which I'll be saving for further study...lol) but so did you :)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it! I've been tweaking it all week and finally just forced myself to stop editing and post it.
I agree, it's interesting to hear about other peoples' methods. Your method sounds a lot more like what I do as well. This vid ended up with about 9 tracks once I'd finished the story line and then, in the process of saving and tweaking, it dwindled down to only 3 tracks. I really liked the layering of the particle stock over the vid by newkidfan - I wish I had some sort of stock like that which would go well with Twilight - maybe NM will provide some ^_^
Thanks again for your comment - I really value your input!

That video was beautiful. I fell in love with that song when I saw the trailer for "Dear John", and I think the song fits PERFECTLY for Edward&Bella in "New Moon".

I love the scenes you used. God, now I'm even more excited to see the movie. I didn't even think that was possible!

Haha - thanks. I know what you mean - just sifting through all the footage got me even more excited for the movie. ^_^
