Guilty Weeds

This is the twentieth Millennium fan music video I made. I always planned on using this track, another track from the band Gravity Kills. And Weeds was the perfect episode to go along to since it was about judgment being passed on people living in a guarded community. I noticed something when editing the video. The shot of Frank Black ducking behind that pole, in the episode you see him do that twice, and it's the same shot. So, I managed to make a seamless transition to make the shot longer. It was fun combining two sequences with the killer and his victims and make it as one. And I also kept the identity of the killer a secret.

All the footage is taken from Weeds, episode eleven from season one of Millennium. The track is called Guilty by Gravity Kills. I titled the video: Guilty Weeds. Enjoy!

Hey Man, Nice Line

Here's my nineteenth Millennium fan music video I made. I made a promise to Viivi, who co-runs a fan site dedicated to the band Filter, to use a song by Filter in one of my future videos. I did many videos after the initial request but had a hard time finding an episode which fit the bill. Then it just hit me, I could connect it with that episode. And the rest was history. It was fun connecting the flashback scene with the dream sequence to make a seamless sequence.

All the footage is taken from The Thin White Line, episode fourteen from season one of Millennium.
The track is called Hey Man, Nice Shot by Filter. I titled the video: Hey Man, Nice Line. Enjoy!

Yaponchik

Here's my eighteenth Millennium fan music video I made. I made a short film with my friend back in 2000 or so. In that short film we used this track and naturally when I thought of Marantha, this song popped up in my head. It turned out well. One fun mixture of scenes, I grabbed a close up of the shotgun barrel from another scene, and it matched the percussion hit in the music.

All the footage is taken from Marantha, episode twenty one from season one of Millennium.
The track is called Volga Boat Song by Soviet Army Chorus & Band. I titled the video: Yaponchik. Enjoy!

The Ghosts of Frank Black

Here's my seventeenth Millennium fan music video I made. It was time for Halloween, so this was a no-brainer. One of the unwritten rules of my music videos was to never use a TV or film score but rules are meant to be bent or broken. When you think of Halloween you automatically think of John Carpenter's Halloween. So, of course I had to incorporate that somehow into the video. Out of that, the Happy Halloween intro was born. I already had the other song in my head for this episode along with how I should cut it at various places. This video was a hassle to make as the programs I was using weren't cooperating with me but as always, I preserved.

All the footage is taken from The Curse of Frank Black, episode six from season two of Millennium.
The tracks I used are Halloween by Celldweller (John Carpenter cover) and Ghosts by Japan. I titled the video: The Ghosts of Frank Black. Enjoy!

We Have Roedecker

Here's my sixteenth Millennium fan music video I made. It was time to honor a certain computer guru, Brian Roedecker. I had to combine lots of computer footage and shots of Roedecker to make this happen, plus find a good song to put this into perspective. Another Gary Numan cover song was chosen for this task. We see Peter Watts and Frank Black have technical problems and Roedecker is there to fix them.

All the footage is taken from every episode Brian Roedecker appeared in throughout season two of Millennium. The track is called We Have a Technical by Damon Albarn & Matt Sharp and it's a Gary Numan cover. I titled the video: We Have Roedecker. Enjoy!

NOTE: The video looks a bit dodgy in a couple of places, I've tried uploading the video three times with different settings and the result is always the same. Thus, I'm offering a download of the video in MPEG-4 format. It's a little under 70 MB in size. The link might become a dud in the future if people don't download it within a certain time limit.

One Hour Doomsday Defense

Here's my fifteenth Millennium fan music video I made. As this was an odd episode, it needed an oddball music track. I found one but it was a short one, I think I still did okay with this one. Stay tuned after the credits for Rocket McGrane!

All the footage is taken from Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense, episode nine from season two of Millennium.
The track is called One Hour Empire by Broadcast. I titled the video: One Hour Doomsday Defense. Enjoy!

Ride of the Luminary

Here's my fourteenth Millennium fan music video I made. This was a tricky video to make, as I had computer problems when making this video and it affected a few videos after that. But I made it work after much hardship. It was my intention from the start to focus on Frank's journey in the wilderness and delete anything else from it. I cut around Peter Watts in the end to separate that part of the episode from the video. I was always going to use a Tangerine Dream track, but finally found one that wasn't too epic although it was long enough. I just had enough footage to make the guitar solo signify the aurora borealis. I tried as well to make a cool transition linking four shots together. It works well but still doesn't live to up what I tried to do. I had a night time shot of the mountain, stars shot, moon shot and a shot of the flashlight going out. I did darken the image a bit to make it more seamless this time around. And as I want Frank Black to look the best, I didn't show the scene where they drop into the river. Plus, I had enough material to work with anyway.

All the footage is taken from Luminary, episode twelve from season two of Millennium.
The track is called Ride on the Ray by Tangerine Dream. I titled the video: Ride of the Luminary. Enjoy!

Heartbeat

Here's my thirteenth Millennium fan music video I made. Since it was evident that Millennium was inspired by the novels of Thomas Harris which introduced us to the character of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, I decided to pay my homage to the obvious connection between Red Dragon and the final two episodes of Millennium. I really admire the Michael Mann film, Manhunter, which is based upon the book Red Dragon. So, I tried my very best to tie the two together. I used a song from the soundtrack of Manhunter and cut to the lyrics, so it would make as much sense to the viewer. I wanted to heighten the connection between the "driller killer" and Frank Black. All these cuts are intentional (although some were discovered on the fly, like Frank Black tripping on the stairs), that you see in the video. And I even corrected something they did in the episode. Frank Black pushes an open door even more ajar and later there's a point of view shot of the bedroom where you can clearly see the door in its original position. Plus, I noticed something else about how they did things on Millennium. There's a close up shot of Frank Black looking at the kitchen sink, they use the very same shot (although they use different pieces, since they lined up perfectly when I played them back to back) twice; the first shot is when he looks at it the first time and they come back to the crime scene again when the curtains were closed so everything was dark. They tinted that same shot so it would match with everything else in that second visit.

All the footage is taken from Via Dolorosa and Goodbye to All That, episode twenty one and twenty two from season three of Millennium.
The track is called Heartbeat by Red 7. I titled the video: Heartbeat (it was really hard to come up with anything). Enjoy!
