16th-Sep-2007 10:33 pm - Six Hornblower Vids
Ships Mutiny
Linked through my LJ.
Please right-click and save. Streaming is a no-no.
And. If I wanted these on YouTube I'd put them there myself. So don't do me any favors.

Title: Numb
Music: Linkin Park, Numb
Footage: Hornblower Series, "Duty"
Characters: Bush/Hornblower
Notes: My old warhorse vid. A sentimental favorite of mine because it was the first vid I made.

Title: This Life of Sin
Music: '03 Bonnie and Clyde
Footage: Hornblower Series, "Duty" and "Loyalty"
Characters: Bush/Hornblower, Bush/Wooden Girlfriends
Notes: Fruit of the crack tree known as navalchronicle.

Title: Rejoice
Music: O Come, O Come Emmanuel
Footage: Last of the Mohicans, The Patriot, Hornblower series, "Frogs & Lobsters"
Character: Edrington
Notes: A roundabout vid that was based on fic written by commodorified and damned_colonial about Major Edrington from the Hornblower series. Vid contains graphic violence and bloodshed.

Title: Smooth
Music: Carlos Santana, Smooth
Footage: Hornblower Series, "Mutiny" & "Retribution"
Characters: Bush/Kennedy
Notes: Done for rach74 and her KDU fic universe.

Title: Sarabande
Music: Arcangelo Corelli, Sarabande
Footage: Hornblower Series, "The Duel"
Character: Clayton
Notes: My first attempt at working with classical music.

Title: God Help Sailors
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Lacrimosa
Footage: A large variety of 18th century movies
Character: Captain Bush
Notes: The hardest vid I've worked on to date. But the most rewarding. Truly my personal favorite. It was my first attempt to not only vid the Hornblower novels well past the point of the A&E series, but also to directly inject a writer's prose into the vid -- idler_1814's drabble, "God Help Sailors".

All rightie, here's my first contribution to the community: links to all eight Hornblower fanvids I've done so far. I have ideas for more, so this is by no means everything. The links lead to their journal entries on feline_artistry, where you can preview them and hopefully download. If not, post a comment requesting a download and I will make it happen.

Title: Raindrops...
Song: "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head"
Movie: Horatio Hornblower: The Duel
Length: 2:56
Notes: My first vid, starring Ioan Gruffud as Horatio Hornblower.

Title: All Alone
Song: "I'm All Alone"
Movie: Horatio Hornblower: Loyalty
Length: 3:43
Notes: My second vid, starring Christian Coulson as Midshipman Jack Hammond.

Title: Evil
Song: "When You're Evil"
Movie: Horatio Hornblower: The Duel
Length: 4:43
Notes: Features mean ol' Jack Simpson because he seems to enjoy being evil so much. I'm considering doing some edits. We'll see.

Title: Friendship
Song: "You've Got A Friend In Me"
Movies: Horatio Hornblower: The Duel, The Duchess and the Devil, The Wrong War, Mutiny, Retribution, and Loyalty
Length: 2:39
Notes: Features the friendship between Matthews and Styles and can be considered slashy if you want to go that route. *wink*

Title: No More
Song: "I Will Go Sailing No More"
Movies: Horatio Hornblower: The Duel, The Duchess and the Devil, The Wrong War, Mutiny, and Retribution
Length: 2:56
Notes: Features the oh-so-lovely Crumpet (Archie Kennedy for the uninitiated). There's one flash of Matthews in there, so just ignore it until I can figure out how to get rid of it.

Title: Lonely Captain
Song: "A Weekend in the Country"
Movies: Horatio Hornblower: The Duel, The Fire Ships, The Duchess and the Devil, and The Wrong War
Length: 3:48
Notes: This time, I chose to feature Captain Sir Edward Pellew. *grin* In case you missed the emphasis, I only used clips from the first four episodes because I feel he was at his best as captain of the Indefatigable.

Title: Don't Impress Me
Song: "That Don't Impress Me Much"
Movie: Horatio Hornblower: The Wrong War
Length: 3:39
Notes: This one features Major Edrington from The Wrong War, or Frogs and Lobsters if you're British. *grin* Anyway, I couldn't resist doing a vid to this song. It's just so funny and fitting for Edrington. I gave it a PG rating for implications of slashiness.

Title: Three Laddies
Song: "Two Ladies"
Movie: Horatio Hornblower
Length: 3:17
Notes: They're not lads, technically, but the idea is the same. Anyway, I couldn't resist doing a vid to this song. It's too perfect. Yay for threesomes and foursomes! *applauds* I gave it a PG rating more for the song than the vid itself.

Duty and honor and repression
I have noticed that Hornblower fanvids seem to be posted all over the place, with no central clearinghouse, so I created this comm. Post any Hornblower-related fanvids here: het, slash, gen, silly, crack, we love it all. TV and movie are both welcome. Just follow the rules in the community information, and remember to have fun and play nice.

If you have any questions, need assistance, or have suggestions for the community, comment here.
