04:02 pm: Spring cleaning: The fanvids
It´s finally spring. YAY! :o)

So I´m basically spring-cleaning about, and I ended up sorting out my videos the other day. Since my fanvid debut, I´ve made 27 videos in total. Most of them are on my You Tube channel, but some of them I had to take down dues to copyrights. Some of them I´m pretty happy with, and some of them I think are rather craptastic. But I thought just for the hell of it, I´d post the three I´m probably most happy with:


I´m not sure if this sticktly qualifies as a fanvid, because it´s not particularly themed. I just wanted to share this song which I really really love, and I think the message of the song was worth sharing. Now, I made this video in late June 2011 and of course that message become even more important later that summer... that is also probably why this video is so dear to my heart.


Those of you who´ve known me for a while know that I was massively enthusiastic about fanvidding LOTR back then. In fact, I could have happily made LOTR fanvids to every single tune Secret Garden has ever made. But as of yet, I´ve only reached three videos, and this is the one I like the best.


I think this is the video on my channel with most views, so I have to put this up. And not sure how much credit I can take, because.... well it´s BRIDESHEAD! I just whacked the clips and the soundtrack from the series together and Bob´s your uncle!

So are there any other fanvidders our there who would like to share some of their vids? Would love to see them!
Or do you have any videos made by other which you could recommend?
Wasn´t only gonna toot my own horn though. My lovely Twitter friend Susana is a far better vidder than me, so go check out her channel:

She was even kind enough to made a few for me, and this is by far my fave:

And she made me an Immediate Music fan in the process. Skiing I kinda liked already ;o)

Have a lovely May all!

Lovely videos Maia. :)
I think my favourite is the LOTR one, such a beautiful song and it brings back so many memories. It also reminds me that I still need to watch The Hobbit.

Alas, I have no skills whatsoever when it comes to making fanvids. I'll just leave it up to you more talented folk. :P

I know, that was the fun part, reliving the memories. And you just reminded ME that I need to get The Hobbit on DVD ;o)

Ah but you are the High Queen of GIF Finders, so we all have different talents ;o)
