"We Will Get There" - A Tribute Music Video to Rat

Postby thedriveintheatre » Sat Aug 09, 2008 4:12 pm

Welcome, one and all, to the Grand Opening of the Drive-In Theatre's first and latest Film Music Video! To celebrate Singapore's 43rd Birthday, I am proud to present to you: "We Will Get There" - A Music Video Tribute to Ratatouille.

If you haven't guessed by now, the song this video is set to is, yes, "We Will Get There", an inspirational number sung by the lovely local artiste, Stephanie Sun Yan Zi. The lyrics of the song sum up the life lessons to be learnt from one of my favourite animated films of all time, and in theme with tonight's NDP celebrations, this piece was Singapore's 2002 NDP Theme Song.

I'm quite happy with the result, and that I got it out just in time on the eve of this special day for all S'poreans. Though I may hail from the other side of the Causeway, I would like to take the opportunity to wish my 'neighbours' a happy NDP and good luck in the Olympics! Pixar Planet forum members, it is my pleasure to give you my very first Pixar music video. I hope you like it! If you did, please rate and comment beneath the video, and subscribe to my channel. Alternatively, you could write your thoughts in this post. There's many more music videos for other Pixar movies in the pipeline, but in the meantime, I've got to get ready for my Wall-E marketing blitz... :D

Enjoy.

Hang on, let me get a tissue.

(cries in another room)

Okay, I'm back. Well, I just saw your MV, and I will tell you that it was by far the best Ratatouille MV I have ever seen. Timing was perfect, and the clips were matched up. The one thing that probably stood out was the song. It was so beautiful and so perfect. You really got me in tears after that. And the ending, now that is as great an ending as you can get.

Overall, I have not seen a Ratatouille MV done this perfectly in all my life. Keep it up. I can't wait to see more.

Aw, come now, pull yourself together, TSS! :D

Seriously though, I'm amazed I moved you to tears. It is indeed one of the more poignant and beautiful NDP theme songs. Although watching my own video doesn't really make me bawl, it kinda stirred something inside me and made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. If I have tugged at your hearstrings or elicited some kind of response, then my job is done. Thank you for the kudos!

I'm deeply honoured by your compliments, wallerat! I noticed you posted a comment on the video itself in YT, so thanks for that too! Do check out my other vids on my channel, there's a couple of Wall-E cameos in the latest ones if you keep your eyes peeled. I'll post the direct links to them at a later date.

If you guys are interested, I'm thinking of doing Cars for my next music video. But first I'll be doing a couple of Pineapple Express spoofs before moving on to my little Wall-E 'marketing campaign' in conjunction with its imminent release in Oz...

Wow! 50 views! Not too shabby...anyone else would like to give their opinion?

HAHA! I really liked your Wall•E trailer, and Kung Fu Parody was pretty great too!
Keep up the cool videos :)

By the way, when does Wall•E come out in Australia?

Thanks for your comments, directive! Wall-E is 'landing' in Oz on 18th September, which is less than 2 weeks away! If you liked those vids, be sure to check out the Dark 'C**k (trust me, it's not vulgar. You'll see why I named it, it's a double entendre) and of course, the latest Ratatouille music video tribute.

Thank you for your kind compliments, Pixar.rocks. I'll take every video I make to the max, for my audience's viewing pleasure. Check out my other vids if you're up for it.

Anyway, I'd like to take the opportunity to make a special announcement. *Ahem*

The 'Drive-In Theatre', in celebration of Disney/Pixar's Wall-E's impending bow in Australia, is proud to present a special pre-release event entitled, "Where's Wall·E?"

Inspired from the "Where's Waldo?" series of 'Look & Find' books and Rachelcake's comment on the Oz version in the "Wall-E's Australian Release" thread (along with the fact that our owner/theatre manager is suffering from Wall-E fever, hence the increased prominence of that robot in his videos), the Drive-In Theatre is airing its usual series of spoof videos, but with a difference. Wall-E (and Eve) will be making several guest appearances (or you could say cameos) at various points throughout the parody trailers. The first two, Kung Fu Parody and The Dark 'C**k (both approved for all audiences, by the way) are now showing, with two more in the pipeline, culminating in the unveiling of Wall-E's very own parody trailer!

In the lead-up to the premiere, and the following weeks after, subject to time availability and idea inspirations, the Drive-In Theatre may release more "Where Wall-E" vids, in addition to a few Wall-E fan trailer and TV spots.

This 'marketing campaign' is the Drive-In Theatre's small contribution for promoting online awareness of one of the best films of the year, and it is our wish that Andrew Stanton and Co. will get that Best Picture Oscar which had been denied so long to animated films.

The Drive-In Theatre would like to thank its patrons for their continued support. Stay tuned for the next "Where's Wall-E" vid, "Parody Express."

:P

thedriveintheatre - I must admit that you're very good with timing -- you've effectively planned out each video so as the music is in harmony with the clips.

Nice job! ;)

Your idea for an online Australian WALL•E promotion is fantastic, thedriveintheatre! I'm really looking forward to the parody trailer and Where's WALL•E?. We're all hoping that it gets a Best Picture nom, too. =)

The Dark 'C**k was really funny. [spoil]WALL•E exploded! Nooooo! Heh.[/spoil]

Very good job with a Ratatouille one! It looks almost professional!

Thanks Mitch, it's great to get a compliment from you, although I'm not quite sure which vid you're commenting on? Anyhoo, I've seen your works on DeviantArt before I came upon PP, and they're fantastic, too. Do you have a YT channel and/or create MVs as well?

Glad you liked the idea of the ad campaign, rachelcakes. 'Where's Wall-E' is not so much a single video, but any of my parody trailers which feature a Wall-E cameo in someway or another. Earlier ones before I caught the Wall-E mania, like CJ7 & Stitch and Hoodwinked Point (both featuring a mash-up of a live-action and animated film of similar themes), didn't have Wall-E 'appearances', but ever since I got hooked from the beginning of the summer season, he's been creeping into my vids, with Eve in tow! So you'll have to ask 'them' why they're constantly crashing my trailers! :wink: Glad you 'found' Wall-E in the second vid, now try to find him in Kung Fu Parody, he's very, very easy to spot! :D

Thank you for the kind words, TSS! It's folks like you that keep giving me a reason to make this vids! It's be totally awesome, when you have the time, to individually review each Pixar-related video I've posted, I always seek suggestions on how to improve my future endeavours. But as it is, I'm very happy you enjoyed my creations.

Thanks, lennonlurv9! That was the look I was going for, with the opening exchange between Linguini and Remy (one of my favourite scenes for truly evocative facial expressions and body language!) and the ID tags at the beginning and the end. I like to watch music videos, both professional and fan-made and try to emulate the aspects of good ones. If I have impressed you, I have achieved my desired effect.

Anyway, it's time for an update. *Ahem* The Drive-In Theatre is now proud to announce the third parody trailer in the Where's Wall-E series: Parody Express! Lampooning the latest Judd Apatow action-thriller buddy comedy, this trailer mash-up promises the ultimate 'high' in laughs and excitement!
Keep your eyes peeled for our usual robot pair, as well as a surprise guest from another Pixar movie (if you know the voice actor's previous films, you'll see the significance of this cameo). Other stoner and action flicks are referenced, along with a couple of YouTube P**p memes, and two Seth Rogen animated characters!
The Drive-In Theatre would like to warn viewers that the trailer contains drug references, mild language (although many of the stronger ones have been censored to humorous effect :wink:), two scientific references to human anatomy, and medium violence. Therefore, we strongly suggest that if you are below 12, uptight, or sensitive to tasteless humour (this, is after all, a stoner flick) that you refrain from watching this vid. We have adopted professional trailer practices (we do have standards, you know :D) and like Street Klowns, have given it the Redband disclaimer at the beginning, but it should be suitable for most of the demographic on this forum (about a PG-13 or Teen rating).
So hop aboard the Parody Express. We promise it'll be one 'trip' you'll never remember!

Whoa, I had to check your past posts to find this thread again after watching Parody Express. Dang, that was the bomb. A little rugged here and there, but for a fan parody, it ain't too shabby, either. Nice work, thedriveintheatre.

This it it, everyone! The parody trailer you've all been waiting for! To celebrate the Australian of premiere of Pixar's latest masterpiece, the Drive-In Theatre is proud to present to you: PAROD·E!

700 years into the future, one robot will teach mankind what it means to live...and to love. But before he can do that, he has to deal with a murderous femme-bot bent on terminating him, angry Pixar character voiceover cameos, Celine Dion, one annoying Space Chimp, the Joker, various sci-fi and robot films all screaming "Rip-Off!", and a totally forgetful John Ratzenberger. All in a day's work for the friendliest loner, bravest coward, and liveliest machine of all time!

Yes, it's all very tongue-in-cheek, what you gonna do about it? Like I've mentioned before, I only make fun of the films that I'm interested in. Just because I love a movie and its characters to death, doesn't mean they're above a little self-depreciation. I hope you enjoy my take on the best film of the year!

Oh, and it's been two weeks and no one has yet to comment on Parody Express! I'm sure not everyone is underaged or got scared away by my disclaimer. I too don't like vulgarity and adult content in my videos unless it's absolutely necessary or part of a quote, but as it is, this parody trailer is already heavily censored by Yours Truly! And as I've mentioned, there's a cameo of another Pixar character as well as our usual robot pair, so I really hope you guys check it out and tell me what you think. ;)

If you loved any of these vids, drop a comment under the vid, say Hi, send me a Friend request, and Subscribe! If you didn't and think I have an appalling sense of humour, then that's just the way the cookie crumbles... :D
