Vid: [The Mighty Ducks] November Rain – REMASTERED

8
Jul 2007

This vid has been remastered, using higher quality clips and editing the bits that I was never particularly happy with. Things have changed a little, and it is now one vid instead of two. See below for download details.

Vid Title: November Rain

Artist: Guns N’ Roses

Fandom: The Mighty Ducks

Clips from: D1, D2, D3 and Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses

Summary: This is an AU vid, in which Casey and Bombay were married and Charlie is their son. This vid (or vids) deals with their break-up and Bombay’s self-destruction that follows it, not to mention Charlie’s reaction. See the Notes for more details.

File Size: See below (by the download links)

Format: Real and Windows Media

Notes: I can’t exactly remember what my thought process was, but I eventually challenged myself to make a video based on Without You by Del James (bear with me on this), using only footage from The Mighty Ducks, and the Without You music videos by Guns N’ Roses (for the non-rabid GN’R fans, that’s Don’t Cry, November Rain and Estranged).

The story of Without You is ultimately about the self-destruction of a man who appears to have everything, but still manages to screw it up. Theoretically Gordon could be that man, he’s rich, he’s well educated, he’s loved, and he could screw it up easily and lose everything. This vid tried to explore that. I have had to use footage from Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses because, obviously, Casey and Gordon never got married in the Ducks fandom (but did in my mind, I love that pairing), and so forth. Any questions, hop over to the forums and ask there. I’ll answer in great detail, I assure you.

If the vid didn’t make sense, try reading the commentary.

Feedback: Always welcome. If you liked it, tell me. If it didn’t make sense, let me know, your opinion will not break me. I have never actually had any feedback on this vid, despite there being over 300 downloads. Was it really that bad?

Vid Commentary: November Rain

Commentary on “November Rain

Well, I did one commentary, and enjoyed it so much (ego-masturbation really puts a smile on your face) that I thought I’d try to explain November Rain. Also, given that the vid is nearly a year old, I’m also probably going to say what I should have done to make it more successful. This is because at some point, I will probably remaster the vid in higher quality clips, and tweak a few things that bothered me.

November Rain is probably an idea that backfired on me. Axl Rose decides to turn Del James’ short story Without You into a music video and spends the next ten years explaining himself. Sarah, thestalkycop, decides to do exactly the same and wonders why she has to explain herself. What’s the definition of insanity, again? Something about endlessly repeating the same task, but hoping for different results?

A Repetition of the Plea on Built This Way: Please give me some form of feedback. I feel that Carla and adamandcharliedude are overstretched as my only vid-feedbackers. Come on, tell me if you loved it, hated it, whatever. Just let them have a break from being the only people to comment!

I Wont Say I'm in Love

I Wont Say I’m in Love

Vid Title: I Won’t Say I’m In Love ~ This is the new version, slightly better than the old one.

Artist: from Disney’s Hercules

Fandom: The Mighty Ducks

Summary: A Casey/Bombay fluffy vid. Enjoy

Rated: U, same as the movie

File Size: 3.6 MB

Notes: This is a bit of a ‘talking heads’ vid, which is a big no-no to the vidding world. I’m sorry about that, but while it may seem like there’s a lot of Casey/Bombay stuff in the film, there’s actually very few clips of it.
