After clipping all the footage from Richard Armitage’s body of work, I thought it would be fun to create a few more fanvideos. After my Graphic a Day in May, I have not had a regular schedule for posts. I only blog when there is some Richard Armitage related news or I complete a piece of work.
Since the RA drought seems to be upon us officially, I would like to challenge myself to complete one fan video per week for the month of September. Do any of you have a clever name for the new challenge? If so, please post your suggestion(s) in the comments or send me a message through the Contact bccmee form if you’d prefer.
So I hereby declare that starting on September 5, 2011, I will complete one fan video each week to be posted on four consecutive Mondays. It’s not a coincidence that I picked a day of the week that only occurs four times in the month! 😉
While I have a few song ideas already, I’m always open to new possibilities. Keep in mind that if you do make a suggestion, please don’t be offended if your song isn’t used in a fanvideo. It’s got to be a perfect storm and it is very subjective. I have to listen to the song 100 times during the editing process so it has to be my style — and even I don’t know what my style is! — and it cannot have been used in a previous Richard Armitage character fan video. Very importantly, the music has to generate at least a germ of an idea either visually or story-wise. I won’t rule out any genre. I’ve used many forms of music: hip-hop, rockabilly, hymns, classical, metal, rock, showtunes, and more. Feel free to have fun! If you can visualize a Richard Armitage character looking beautiful to the background of a song, then it’s a candidate. 🙂
Polls are fun. Even though I don’t know which character will appear in my September 5th fan video, it will be one of the characters below. Maybe you’ll guess correctly! There’s no prize but you can brag to your friends that you have ESP if you are correct. 😉
By the way, my Band of Horses – Strike Back fan video from three weeks ago was unblocked and now you can watch it on YouTube where it’s closed-captioned:
And finally, I would like to send a massive thank you to everyone for your overwhelming support to my Richard Armitage 40th birthday fanvid! Wow, I can’t begin to tell you how much your kind messages mean to me.
