"Star Trek, My Love," my 4th vid
Well, I went ahead and posted this on youTube after all, though I'm not objective on this one, and I can't judge its merits.
It's my personal story, which naturally incorporates the history of my times and my planet.
Do let me know what you think.
(In theory, anyway, I could still re-edit the thing.)
There are timeline notes and sources to accompany the photos on the video's youTube site. (Click on "more info" in the description box.)
And let me add here that I laughed to realize that when I was thirteen, I actually looked a little like Kim Darby (the girl here, from Star Trek's "Miri" episode).
It took me a long time to get this one together, partly because I spent a lot of time looking through historical photos, partly because the heavy emotions slowed me down (working on it felt important, but it wasn't fun like the other 3), and partly because I had a hell of a time choosing music.
I couldn't think of a piece of music that covered the varying emotions, so I tried to mix clips, but I'm so unschooled in musical technology, it was just a frustrating failure.
Last night I was futzing with it and I thought, why not try one of my most favorite tunes, "In My Life"?
Not only did the reflective lyrics and melody fit, but the length was just about right too. I only had to do a bit of rearranging to get align it pretty neatly.
P.S. "LVD" of course is my mother.
