Gyahhh. I’ve soooooo been slacking on this thread. Sorry, guys.
Anyhoo, StarSwordsman, I took a look at that 7 minute Incredibles vid or yours a while back, and I have to say I’m really impressed. I loved how each character/group had their own little spot in there. The end was my favorite part - you kept the editing quick and with good timing. I think it’s the best one of yours I’ve seen. Nice job!
Title: Ratatouille - “Where the Dream Takes You” Song: “Where the Dream Takes You” by Mya Description: Yay!! 'Tis the next vid in my Ratatouille kick! I was watching Atlantis: The Lost Empire one day and during the credits I realized I had never listened to the song that was playing. Wouldn’t ya know it, it led to another MV. This song suited Remy so well it had to be done, and here it is. I’m rather proud of this one.
I own neither the song or the movie, Pixar & Disney own Ratatouille and Mya owns the song. Link:youtube.com/watch?v=5A2dbIVlzsA
Title: Linguini & Colette - “Tell Me Lies” Song: “Tell Me Lies” by Natalie Cole Description: Okay, when I first saw the movie, I wasn’t that big of a fan of the Linguini/Colette pairing. I’m slowly beginning to like it, though, and I was watching Cats Don’t Dance the other day when I again heard this song and the idea for this vid bit my brain.
The song is an old favorite of mine sung by Natalie Cole for Warner Bros./Turner Feature’s truly underrated movie “Cat’s Don’t Dance”. The song seemed like such a suitable “Colette’s POV” tune for the part right after she finds out Linguini’s been consorting with Remy the whole time and she runs out of the restaraunt. I also thought that the background blues/jazz music of the song sounded a LOT like something Michael Giacchino would compose. This music still just gives me spine-shivers.
Also, anyone who remembers seeing the actual scene of this song from “Cats Don’t Dance” may recognize that I took a lead from the scene on the short “flashback” sequence towards the end of the video. I really liked how that was used in the official video of the song, so I thought I’d try to do something like it.
Okay, two more little things and I’ll shut up. One, the only track of the song I could find off the bat is a recording direct from its parent movie, so you’ll hear some oddly placed sound effects throughout it. Sorry. ^^;; Second, I actually made a version of this MV with the French track of the song over it, and I think it sounded REALLY cool. If enough people are curious about it, I may think to put it up.
Title: Cars - “Little Wonders” Song: “Little Wonders” by Rob Thomas Description: Time for another vid to both a song and a movie that almost made the editor cry…eheheheh. So yeah, this Rob Thomas song nearly DID make me cry when I saw it at the end of Meet the Robinsons. It’s even flown over “Feels Like Today” on my most played iTunes song. O__O Link:youtube.com/watch?v=zygqNdiyFnY
Title: Cars - “Step Up” Trailer Spoof Description: Okay, well, I saw somebody else’s “dubbed spinoff” of the trailer for “Step Up” to another movie and I wanted to give a hand at making a trailer spoof. I think I did rather well on this one. It was actually pretty fun to make.
And yes, around 0:20, I did edit out one particular word. I do not like the word, I prefer it not to be in my videos, so I took it out.
Cars belongs to Disney & Pixar and the audio is pulled from the “Step Up” trailer and belongs to Touchstone Pictures and Summit Entertainment Link: [url]- YouTube
Title: Ratatouille - “Part of Your World” Music Video Song: “Part of Your World” by Sierra Boggess Description: Created by request. For future references, I doubt I’ll be taking video requests - this was really my first and I thought I’d give it a try. I admit this was kinda hard to do, but it was fun all the same. I used the Broadway version of this song performed by Sierra Boggess, because I think she puts a whole lot more guts into the final verses than Jodi Benson did. Now, thanks to this version of the song, I’m hooked on TLM on Broadway.
I do not own the song or the footage - the song belongs to Disney and the footage belongs to Disney/Pixar Link: [url]- YouTube
BTW, I owe a big thanks to those who watch and rate and comment on these. Thank you!
Title: Ratatouille - “Defying Gravity” Music Video
Song: “Defying Gravity” by Idina Menzel & Kristen Chenoweth Description: I should say first and foremost that this song is the only thing I really know about “Wicked”. The story of the play itself just never really appealed to me, but I heard this song in someone else’s video and fell in love with it. This video nearly WORE ME OUT. It got increasingly difficult to find the ideal clips to put to a song written for a Wizard of Oz thing. The speaking parts were the hardest to work around… And I’m still a little perturbed there are all girls singing for all guy parts… But in the end, I like the way this one turned out and I’m frankly proud of it. So this one goes to all the underdog dreamers out there, just like Remy.
I DON’T OWN THE MOVIE OR THE FOOTAGE. Rataouille belongs to Disney & Pixar and the song belongs to the Broadway musical “Wicked” and lyricist Stephen Schwartz Link: [url]- YouTube
One new one.
CGI Clownfish - Wow. I love that “Ratatouille - ‘Where the Dream Takes You’” music video – it was most inspiring and utterly pleasant to watch. As for your Step Up trailer spoof: Absolutely hilarious. You managed to lip-synch the Cars characters’ words/phrases to the dialogue in the trailer quite well, which results in a fairly smooth, entertaining, and convincing video.
Hmm, I’m not quite sure yet… I make a vid whenever the inspiration hits me, and I haven’t had any strong “incredible” ideas thus far…
Title: Finding Nemo - “POTC: At World’s End” Trailer Spoof Description: MWAH-HA-HA, SPOOFAGE!!! Okay, I have to say I am very proud of the way this one turned out. In this version, it’s the Tank Gang that goes on a search for Marlin at Sea’s End! And yes, I know it probably would’ve been easier to have Nemo being the one everyone’s searching for, but I REALLY wanted to see Marlin as Captain Jack Sparrow. And Nigel as Barbossa…(You have to admit there’s no other option for that. ;D ) The only thing in this vid I’m not too happy about is the titles at the end. And sorry about the watermark - ya can’t be too careful, ya know.
Captain Jack Sparrow/Will Turner - Marlin
Elizabeth Swan - Dory
Captain Barbossa - Nigel
Norrington/Beckett - Gill
Captain Sao-Feng - Crush
The Crew - The “Other Dads” and the Tank Gang
I DON’T OWN THE FOOTAGE OR THE AUDIO. THE AUDIO IS FROM THE TRAILER OF “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END” AND BELONGS TO DISNEY AND THE FOOTAGE IS “FINDING NEMO” AND BELONGS TO DISNEY AND PIXAR BUT OF COURSE YOU KNEW THAT. Link:youtube.com/watch?v=eSGqnk2-uBw
ok, ill say it. I ABSOLUTELY ADORE ULTIMATEDISNEYGEEKS VIDEOS! she has to be my favorite person on youtube. i check her page every week. i love youtube. here is my list of the best animation videos on it (they are in no particular order) :
“Drops of Jupiter” ~ Delbert/Amelia- ok, i know its not pixar. this is the best animation videos in general. i love pretty much all animated couples (except the really creepy ones), and i think the song is phenomenal. It also really goes with the theme of the movie.
Cars - “Feels Like Today” Music Video- ULTIMATEDISNEYGEEK! man, this video is beautiful. almost made me cry the first time i saw it. i think this was the first video of hers i saw. the timing is awesome, and the song choice is even better.
Thanks for the comments, guys. And I just watched that “Drops of Jupiter” one for the first time; FONY did a great job with that one.
Okay, new trailer spoof. LightningandSally, I think you will fully enjoy this one.
Title: Cars - “A Walk to Remember” Trailer Spoof Description: DUDE, it would be flat AWESOME if they actually made this one. I don’t care what RottenTomatoes or IGN or any of the critics say about it, A Walk to Remember is one of the sweetest love stories I’ve ever seen. Yes, it is a bit sad in the end, but everything ties up so beautifully.
Anyhoo, this is another movie that I thought worked with the Cars characters. It’s somewhat of a similar synopsis to the Cars/Step Up Trailer, but this one definitely has more emotion, sincerity, and sweetness to it. Enjoy!!
EDIT: I just realized the synch of the vid with the audio is slightly off… Sorry.
I DON’T OWN EITHER THE FOOTAGE OR THE AUDIO, THE AUDIO BELONGS TO WARNER BROTHERS AND THE FOOTAGE BELONGS TO DISNEY AND PIXAR. Link: [url]- YouTube
