ETA 07/09/14 Now remastered and shiny! Links below are updated. The remastering process was tricker than I thought it would be (having never done this before) - mostly due to the cam footage scenes being inexplicably several frames longer than the DVD ripped scenes. Which meant I had to do some unexpected clip tweaking, to make the same clips fit in the same slots. Also, a couple of clips turned out to be way less awesome once you could actually *see* what was going on…! Notably, a clip that I thought showed an explosion, but turned out to just be a particularly blurry scene change…oops. That one got swapped out. Newly remastered vid also contains bonus!Maria Hill and bonus!Natasha, now that the full width of the screen can be seen. :-)

summary: Strangers waiting / up and down the boulevard...
content notes: Spoilers for the film. Also, some very shaky camera work, exacerbated by the cam-quality footage. NB: Please just bear with the first 30 seconds.... :-)

notes: It's that most wonderful time of year again - [personal profile] such_heights's BIRTHDAY! ♥ She is the bestest of friends and the awesomest of flatmates (along with K & [personal profile] happydork, my other two flatmates, of course) and so I made her this ridiculous little vid about Sam and Steve to celebrate. They are adorable and great, and so is she.


This was made as a Steve/Sam vid, but it could also be a Steve + Sam vid if you like. Though I should point out that Nick Fury and Maria Hill and Natasha totally ship them, and they know what's what. (For the record, I also ship Steve/Natasha, Steve/Peggy and Steve/Bucky, as well as Steve/All The Avengers. [personal profile] such_heights and I made a mind-map of all our MCU ships once. It resembled a web woven by a really drunk spider.)

Anyway, I maaaay remaster this when the DVD comes out in August. We'll see how industrious I'm feeling. Vidding with cam footage is HARD! This is my first time making an entire vid with rubbish quality source, and I'm full of admiration for people who do this often. I spent a lot of time squinting bemusedly at the screen, trying to work out where the beats should fall, and cursing the blurry scene changes.

( Oh, and I'm sorry* for the first 30 seconds. I know it's crack. I know. But I couldn't resist! The song choice is entirely due to its use in The Losers. [personal profile] such_heights loves that film, and whilst I am mostly indifferent towards it, that particular scene is just amazing and was too hilarious not to use. If you want to see the rest of the scene play out (which I highly recommend), you can watch it here on youtube. One day I kind of hope someone does a proper mash-up of the two films, and improves upon this rather half-arsed attempt.)

*not sorry

Lyrics

Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train
Goin' anywhere
Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train
Goin' anywhere

A singer in a smokey room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching
In the night
Streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin' somewhere in the night

Workin' hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win
Some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching
In the night
Streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin' somewhere in the night

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlights, people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on
Streetlights, people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlights, people...
