SG-1 Vid: Chosen Path  
Title: Chosen Path
Music: Did My Time by Korn
Spoilers: Ark of Truth
Characters: Cameron Mitchell vs. John Merrick
Links: My Website | MediaFire

Notes: Everyone thinks of Cameron Mitchell as the All-American football hero. Golden boy, fighter pilot, jock. But even a golden boy can be pushed too far, and when that happens he confronts the self he could have been ... or can still become.

In a way, this is all ivorygates fault for wanting Superstar. It made me want to experiment with the fight scenes to this song (which I've wanted to vid since the dawn of time) and I started throwing clips in. It was good but I felt that the timing needed to be tweaked. Cut to a year later because I'd totally forgotten about it (whoops). Then I started talking to [info] - personalavaloste about vidding and showed her that old test clip and she kind of kicked me in the ass to finish my "experiment". As I worked on the video, it took a little bit but I finally found the story within it and shifted things around. So here we go...

(Be expecting an essay within the next day or so dealing with how I ended up approaching the two videos.)

I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do and for those not familiar with how I vid, please keep in mind that I'm not asking for a technical critique. I simply enjoy knowing how the video affects you. Sounds cheesy I know, but I like to know my warm fuzzies are shared. :)

A vid from Merrick point of view! Now that's unexpected, and Korn's agressive style works very well for it. The timing on the cuts was great.

Y'know you'd almost feel sorry for Merrick if he wasn't such a total ass. ;)

It surprised me to see that you thought it was from Merrick's POV (but I can see why). It's actually more like 50/50 with emphasis on Cam's POV. (now superstar, that's strictly from Merrick's. *g*)

Thank you so much for commenting and letting me know you liked this.

I guess I thought that because the lyrics were so Merrick, although looking back at what was being said when... I'll have to watch again, clearly.

I wonder if it's because I don't like Korn all that much, so I made it all Merrick? ;)

People tend to see things differently with my videos, getting various things out of them, so if that's what you see that's all cool.

Well, I can see that. Your videos convey strong emotions. Depending on our feelings about the characters, and out personal experiences, I can see different viewers focussing on different aspects.
