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!

NOTE: The video looks a bit dodgy in a couple of places. Thus, I'm offering a download of the video in MPEG-4 format. It's a about 75 MB in size. The link might become a dud in the future if people don't download it within a certain time limit.

Click here to download the video.

Cheers from Iceland!
