[vid] a cold and broken hallelujah

Wow, haven't made a vid in a while. :-O



title: a cold and broken hallelujah
song: Hallelujah by Imogen Heap
length: 2;58
characters/pairings: house, kutner, wilson, cuddy, thirteen, foreman; house/cuddy, wilson/amber, house/stacy, house/wilson, foreman/thirteen
spoilers: Simple Explanation

summary & notes: A reflection on Kutner, House, Amber and Thirteen, the impact we don't realise we leave on people, and when the human spirit is broken.

I used a number of parallels in this, particularly between House, Kutner and Thirteen. The colouring is done in a way that's supposed to make you pay attention to certain details that you mightn't normally pay attention to, "missed symptoms" just like in Simple Explanation. It's a short video reflecting on how precious and fragile life is, and how much we'll never really know how much of an impact we leave on people.

That was really great. It brought tears to my eyes.

Thank you so much for watching and for taking the time to comment. (Sorry this took so long for me to reply to - fail on my part.)

My favorite part, and it's something that you do well in your vids, is the part with the parallel visuals: House on the floor when he overdosed and the "weapon" nearby (I kind of think, if there was a moment that House wanted to actively kill himself, it was that moment)--the pill bottle--and Kutner on the floor with the gun, and the CPR cuts. Those were great. I have to admit that this isn't my favorite version of this song, but it's good that you didn't pick one that was overused and one that had more of a somber feel to it. This was great. Glad to see you vidding again.

Oh, and you know, I think it's almost...not weird, because it's natural, but...kind of weird, because people criticised that House could only just look for "missed symptoms", but it's exactly what so many fans have been doing themselves. It's partly what you do here (not that you were one criticising because you weren't), and it's what some fics have done, and discussions have done. Something else I've noticed is I think this is the second or third time you've used the words "how precious and fragile life is". I see a reoccurring theme with you, Ticcy. ;) It's a good one. (And, God, Taub breaking down still fucking kills me.) And I think it's something I love about House the series that you bring out: That there's a lot of misery and pain amongst all these characters (and I know this is part of the reason I always want there to be with all of them) but they have moments of pulling each other through. Great human suffering but great moments of connection despite it. So, thanks for that, too.

Look at me failing to answer these comments in any reasonable and timely manner. Yeah. WAY TO FAIL, TICCY. I hate my memory, ahahahaha gah.

BUT. To respond to your awesome detailed feedback: THANK YOU SO MUCH.

people criticised that House could only just look for "missed symptoms", but it's exactly what so many fans have been doing themselves

I know, right. Ahahahaha, I thought the exact same thing. Fans love being hypocritical like that. XD But yeah, that was one of the motifs of this vid: the missed details, how easy it is to overlook things in people. And the highlighted colours in the video were supposed to give the idea of what would you remember about a person after they're gone? Because it's always the little details that you miss about a person, not just the person themselves.

I think this is the second or third time you've used the words "how precious and fragile life is". I see a reoccurring theme with you, Ticcy. ;) It's a good one.

Lmao lmao. Yeah. It's a theme I like to work with a lot, because it's true and there are so many ways this can be explored, especially with a show like House. Life IS fragile and it can end at any moment. The show does a great job of showcasing that motif.

Thank you again for such lovely and detailed feedback. It's rare to get it with vids, so I lap it up wherever I can. ♥ ♥ ♥

I loved it BB, but I'm crying again. Thank you for this though. You are an amazing artist.

[identity profile] ticcyyy.livejournal.com 2009-06-28 06:41 am (UTC)(link)
Wow, thanks, bb.

I realised I never answered people's comments here, so I am rectifying that now. Only like, TWO MONTHS LATE, ahahaha. Fail, Ticcy.

Thanks again, babe. ♥

This was wonderfully done. I think you should be the one that makes the montage sequence at the ending of every episode. Imogen was a very good choice!

I never really noticed how every one suffers a great deal of pain. I feel horrible now. I just now noticed everyone (except for foreman because he likes to deal with pain alone) has had a breakdown scene.

I AM CRYING OK!

[identity profile] ticcyyy.livejournal.com 2009-06-28 06:43 am (UTC)(link)
Sorry my reply is so late. Long story short, I fail at answering comments.

Yeah, on the surface, the show is funny and witty. But in actuality, it's a very sad show about people who are suffering a great deal with their own personal struggles.

Thanks so much for watching and taking the time to comment. ♥

Perfect video. It made me cry. That version of Hallelujah fits so beautifully also.

Ticcy. :( (Good sad face. XD) I haven't watched since like, the middle of S3 and I still cried. SERIOUSLY. YOU HAVE MAGIC VIDDING POWERS.

Oh god, you've broken my heart again. They've all gone through so much, haven't they? Brilliant work.

(Also, I've never heard that version of the song before, and here I thought I'd heard every version. It's haunting, and it's instantly become one of my favorites.)

[identity profile] ticcyyy.livejournal.com 2009-06-28 06:48 am (UTC)(link)
They really have. It's a witty, funny show on the surface, but the characters are all people who are going through a lot of pain.

Thanks so much for watching, babe. (And how much do I fail at answering these comments in a timely manner? Gah.)

What more I can say than that this is wonderful? You have the instinct of real filmmaker, how certain scenes go together not just with lyrics but also with one another. The colouring, the cross-fading all that is very special and although these are borrowed clips I certainly see a handwriting in your vids.

[identity profile] ticcyyy.livejournal.com 2009-06-28 06:50 am (UTC)(link)
Wow, seriously. Your feedback is just lovely. And inspiring, too. Thanks so much. I really appreciate it. ♥

House and Imogen Heap-two of my favorite things!

This was sad and touching and just, wow, perfect. Awesome job.

You did an amazing job. This vid made me realize how much they all have been through :(

[identity profile] ticcyyy.livejournal.com 2009-06-28 06:51 am (UTC)(link)
They've been through an awful amount. They're all such damaged people. :-(

Thanks so much for watching. (Big FAIL on my part for taking so long to reply to everyone.) ♥

There are so many versions of this song out there, and I had no idea this one existed. It worked perfectly for this video since it didn't have any other distracting musical interludes and really makes you focus on the words.

I also loved the parallels of House, Amber, and Kutner being revived. What absolutely broke my heart though was that House and Amber could still move, albeit via defibrillator, Kutner was practically stone, with no hope of ever coming back.

The lighting was awesome -- loved all the reds and blues.

And the opening shots of the casket being taken out and inside the ambulance were absolutely breathtaking.

Very, very, very good work.

Wow, how much do I fail for taking so long to reply to everyone's comment to this, let's all count the ways. *facepalm*

Thank you SO much for such detailed feedback. A lot of people don't give feedback where they tell you exactly what stood out for them, and I really appreciate it when people do leave that kind of feedback. I love that you noticed things like the parallels between House, Amber and Kutner.

Thanks again, bb. So much. ♥

Beautiful. Heartbreakingly beautiful.

Wow, you have a great eye! Beautifully done with this version of the song. Your colouring is more subtle than Simple Explanation's and against the a capella Hallelujah very effective. Bravo!

[identity profile] ticcyyy.livejournal.com 2009-06-28 06:54 am (UTC)(link)
Aww, wow, thanks so much for the lovely feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed the vid. ♥
