Please feel free to drop a link to the first vid you made. Any fandom, any date is welcome. Even if your first vid has been online for while you can participate. Ditto if your first vid was made only days ago - or last year. Or last decade. Or whenever. All first vids in all fandoms are welcome. The idea is to show case our first efforts, remind of us where we started and encourage others who have just started vidding.
Title: Ordinary World
Fandom: The Professionals
Artist: Duran, Duran
I made this vid using two VCRs and second or third generation copies of the TV show on videotape. Looking back it has all the hallmarks of a 'great' first time vid: cuts off (not on) the beat, long clips (although to be fair we all had limits on how fast we could cut using VCRs - but trust me, these are looong clips), talking heads etc.
The idea came to me while I was living apart fromxlorp and working on a huge project that took me to Los Angeles for a year and a half. I would drive home to my rented room in the evening and listen to this song and think of him and how much I missed him. The line 'Where is my friend when I need him most?" captured for me the dynamics of my (then) favorite pairing of Bodie and Doyle. The 'ordinary world' the singer keeps singing about is (surprise surprise) all the girlfriends they love and lost. I guess that means they were fated to be together, eh?
