Video: Before We Ever Knew ~ Stargate Sam/Jack  
Song: Keeper of the Stars (edited)
Artist: Tracy Byrd

Happy Ship Day to all of the Sam/Jack shippers over at Gateworld!

Well, I've been wanting to make a Sam/Jack video to this song for a very long time. I think it's one of the most beautiful love songs out there. Even after listening to it hundreds of times over this past week, I still love hearing it.

As for the song edits... I deleted the second verse and chorus and spliced the outro verse onto the end of the first chorus. I would have loved to use the whole song but I think it would have gotten boring. I also never would have had time to do the whole song.

I guess I needed the pressure of having only one week to make it! I don't work well under pressure and I nearly gave up on it. But my little vidding angel saved me. Many thanks again are owed to gatebee Kisses! Mmmmwah! You got me back on track after I thought for sure that I couldn't get this done. And dear rae1013, "I tip my hat" to you for putting me onto the path to finding "my" style. Hope you don't mind but I just could not resist the opportunity of the old me giving you a nod.

Re: Befor We Ever Knew Vid
Hi Robyn. I hope you check back here because I don't know how else to get in touch with you. Wow! I'm absolutely humbled by your comment. Sometimes I get in the dumps about why I even bother vidding but you sure showed me right here one very good reason. It means a lot to me that you like my videos. Thank YOU very much too. ((HUGS))

Beautifully edited video, showing deep emotions, brava! I like the smooth transitions especially and your clip choices are great! This song fits so perfectly for that couple. I love your Sam/Jack videos, although I'm not really a shipper, you know it.:)

Why don't you post it to stargatevids? Spread the love!

Thank you! This song has always moves emotionally me so maybe that helped? I'm honored that you like my S/J videos because that tells me I must be doing something right. *grins*

stargatevids... D'oh! I'll get a post out there as soon as I catch up here. Thanks for reminding me.

Aw, so sweet. Nicely put together. :D

Thanks! I tell you, I was having major panic attacks. One week and computer misbehaving horribly. I'm glad you like it. ♥

Aw, that's so sweet. Lovely song and I loved the split screen montage - very nice. Happy Ship Day! :)

Thank you. I'll tell ya a secret (looks around to see if we're alone) I request this song at every wedding and if the DJ says "Don't got it" I pull out a CD with the mp3. ROFL! I'm so baaaad!

Those split screen things were a last minute thing. After gatebee ripped my 3rd draft to shreads (LOL!) I did some serious thinking and one of the fixes was the split screens.

Ship Day was a total blast!

Fantastic! Really, really beautiful. I know you splice songs about a lot for your videos but I can never tell where the cuts are. I wish I could do that half as well as you (may have to book lessons!)

Thaank you for sharing that with us. Happy (belated) Ship day.
Theresauhsir on August 1st, 2010 02:47 am (UTC)
Thanks! *blushes* Me give lessons... Phphphp! I spent HOURS and three tries to do the song edits. The only thing keeping me going was sheer stubbornness. If you ever get the inkling to try it, I use Audacity and I'll be happy to help you out.
