MacGyver & Millennium

Millennium fan music video number thirty-nine. I was inspired by all the great mashup videos I've seen on YouTube, where vidders take music from a TV show and put it against another show and mimic the style of the original show.

I had great fun with this one, it took me some time gathering all those little bits here and there. I wanted to focus on season one and two of Millennium with a few shots from season three. I used the season one version of the MacGyver theme song but used the cut template from the second season when Dana Elcar started getting main title credit. It might be a frame off here and there but it's supposed to be cut at the same time as the season two opening titles of MacGyver.

I did alter some shots, either sped up or slowed down a few shots. And I changed the color in a few shots either to darken or lighten the picture.

Footage is taken from various episodes from all three seasons of Millennium. The track is the theme song for the TV series MacGyver (taken from season one) by Randy Edelman. Enjoy!

The End of Lara Means as We Know It

Millennium fan music video number thirty-eight. I did this video to celebrate the 42nd birthday of Kristen Cloke with all the nice people over at the TIWWA forums.

All the footage is taken from almost every episode Lara Means appeared in throughout season two of Millennium plus some disaster footage from season three. The track is called The End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by R.E.M. I titled the video: Lara Means is Paranoid. Enjoy!

Peter Watts

Millennium fan music video number thirty-seven. It was time to give the character Peter Watts some much needed love. I decided to just use Season Two footage since I was lazy plus it's the season where Watts is the most developed and the song I chose was rather short.

All the footage is taken from a few episodes Peter Watts appeared in throughout season two of Millennium as well as the last episode of the series. The track is called A Warm Place by Nine Inch Nails. Enjoy!

Blind from Darkness

Millennium fan music video number thirty-six. I was inspired by Jason D. Morris' "Beach Ball of Pain" fan video, plus I've always wanted to do a video with just Frank Black's visions. And that video did give me that push. It took some time to find all the visions and know which ones to use and where to put them.

Footage is taken from various episodes from all three seasons of Millennium. The track is called Heresy (Blind) by Nine Inch Nails. Enjoy!

Forcing the Easter

Millennium fan music video number thirty-four. I did this video to celebrate Easter with all the nice people over at the TIWWA forums.

Very hard video to do, to try to shorten the scenes to the bare essentials to know what is happening and to make sense.

All the footage is taken from Forcing the End, episode fifteenth from season three of Millennium. The track is called Leaving Hope by Nine Inch Nails. Enjoy!

Darwin's Eye Too

Millennium fan music video number thirty-three. I did this video to celebrate Easter with all the nice people over at the TIWWA forums. Obviously, I already had done a video for this episode, so I had to focus on the A-story instead of the B-story I did in the previous one.

As always, I love cutting to the beat of a song plus I managed to link some visuals to the lyrics somewhat.

All the footage is taken from Darwin's Eye, episode seventeen from season three of Millennium. The track is called Eye by Smashing Pumpkins. Enjoy!

TIWWA Easter Egg

Millennium fan music video number thirty-two. I did this video to celebrate Easter with all the nice people over at the TIWWA forums. This was used as a hidden Easter egg.

All the footage is taken from The Sound of Snow, episode twelve from season three of Millennium. Audio was taken from Beware of the Dog and The Curse of Frank Black, episode two and six from season two of Millennium. The tracks are called Peter Cottontail by Gene Autry; and As Long as I'm Singing by Bobby Darin. Enjoy!

Rip Thy Kingdom

Millennium fan music video number thirty-one. This is the last video I made for backtofrankblack.com, however I did share a few videos which I did for millennium-thisiswhoweare.net.

It was a fun ride making videos for backtofrankblack when it was in full blossom. It was exhausting but rewarding, the challenge of doing a video a week. Sometimes I was ahead and sometimes I fell behind but I always delivered (except when I went to the Flashback Weekend horror convention in Chicago). I just wanted to see if I could do a music video and then it was just to see how many videos could I make before I hit the music wall. I never did it for the recognition, I did it for the enjoyment of others (but positive feedback was always appreciated) plus I wanted to encourage people to let them be heard.

There was a time when BTFB was flying to the moon, not because it's easy but because it's hard. Now with staff changes, it's flying to the sun and they've burned all bridges. I do appreciate getting these gold nuggets on those Millennium Group Sessions podcasts from the cast and crew of Millennium, but it's hard to support them when you know they act like 8 years old behind people's back. I could say some foul things about the guys running the site now, but I won't. Because I'm not in the hurting game. I really should have listened to the wisdom of The X-Files to trust no one and that the truth is out there.

All the footage is taken from Kingdom Come, episode six from season one of Millennium. The track is called Rip by Gary Numan. I titled the video: Rip Thy Kingdom. Enjoy!

Morgan & Wong

Millennium fan music video number thirty. Here's a promo I did for Morgan & Wong week over at backtofrankblack.com. I'm very proud of what I managed to do with what was supposed to be only a 30 seconds long. But I soon realized that was very hard to do, plus I wanted it to be somewhat epic, so I opted to focus on the comet which was one of Morgan & Wong's creation throughout the second season.

All the footage is taken from The Beginning and the End; and The Time is Now, episode one and twenty-three from season two of Millennium. The track is called Intro from "Also sprach Zarathustra" (Strauss) by John Williams and Boston Pops Orchestra. I titled the video: Avatar on the Loose. Enjoy!

Into the Millennium

Millennium fan music video number twenty-nine, or should I say X-Files fan music video? Yes, I made a music video from the infamous X-Files/Millennium crossover episode.

All the footage is taken from Millennium, episode four from season seven of X-Files. The track is called Into the Woods by Paw. I titled the video: Into the Millennium. Enjoy!

Avatar on the Loose

Millennium fan music video number twenty-eight. I wanted to be on the Avatar bandwagon, so I made a tribute to Avatar...the REAL Avatar, mind you, the biggest badass Frank Black has faced in his career.

Avatar is here, get off the Internet, it's not safe!

All the footage is taken from The Mikado, episode thirteen from season two of Millennium. The track is called Killer on the Loose by Thin Lizzy. I titled the video: Avatar on the Loose. Enjoy!

The Beginning and the End of Your White Halo

Millennium fan music video number twenty-seven. I finally was able to use an actual Gary Numan song, I was feeling guilty of only been using cover version. I managed to fit the lyrics to the action by making it reflect on whoever is on screen (Frank Black, Peter Watts or Jordan Black).

All the footage is taken from The Beginning and the End, episode one from season two of Millennium. The track is called Halo by Gary Numan . I titled the video: The Beginning and the End of Your White Halo. Enjoy!

Frank Black Celebration

Millennium fan music video number twenty-six. For a long time this song was looming over me, I knew I was going to use this song focusing on Frank Black. When I actually got around to do it, it was December and might as well use it to celebrate the new year since I also used footage from the X-Files episode "Millennium".

I was really proud of having Frank Black blinking and hitting a door to the beat of this song (and no, I didn't cheat like they did on the show, they showed the same action from two viewpoints to make it longer).

Footage is taken from various episodes from all three seasons of Millennium and the X-Files/Millennium crossover episode "Millennium", episode four from season seven of X-Files. The track is called Black Celebration by Depeche Mode. I titled the video: Frank Black Celebration. Enjoy!

Higher Ego

Millennium fan music video number twenty-five. It was hard to find a track for this episode but I managed to find just the right one at the last moment. It was fun to see that even Sonny's blows matched the beat of the song. I noticed again how they edited the show. I managed to extend this one master shot of the two women on the bed by linking all of them together (and I noticed they used the same material twice in that motel room scene).

All the footage is taken from In Arcadia Ego, episode eighteen from season two of Millennium. The track is called Higher Lover by Depeche Mode. I titled the video: Higher Ego. Enjoy!

A Single Shriekback

Millennium fan music video number twenty-four. Again, nothing much to say about this video. Just that I felt this track had a very spiritual vibe that matched this episode quite well.

All the footage is taken from A Single Blade of Grass, episode five from season two of Millennium. The track is called Coelocanth by Shriekback. I titled the video: A Single Shriekback. Enjoy!

Midnight of a Merry Little Christmas

Millennium fan music video number twenty-three. It was time for a Christmas music video and I searched high and low within my family's Christmas compilations. And I found this track which I felt was perfect for our favorite Millennium Christmas episode, Midnight of the Century.

I managed to link the lyrics to the action somewhat and that was very fun to do.

All the footage is taken from Midnight of the Century, episode ten from season two of Millennium. The track is called Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Bing Crosby. I titled the video: Midnight of a Merry Little Christmas. Enjoy!

Amber Skull and Bones

Millennium fan music video number twenty-two. There's nothing much to say about this video other than I wanted to feature some of my good music friends I've met (some even in person) in the past through myspace. And this episode and this track were perfect for each other.

If you like the music track in this music video, please check out Cindi's myspace page and garageband page for more of her fantastic music.

All the footage is taken from Skull and Bones, episode six from season three of Millennium. The track is called Amber Lights by /skerj/. I titled the video: Amber Skull and Bones. Enjoy!

Owls and Roosters, It's Still Midnight

Millennium fan music video number twenty-one. This is one video that needed to be epic. This one has a history. I gave a friend of mine a CD (In Silico by Pendulum) and heard the first track and asked to borrow the CD (and gave it back the very next day). I put it on my iShuffle and listened to the album many times for a few weeks. When I heard the beginning of the fifth track, I thought of the beginning of Owls. The music had this Eastern quality or whatever it was, and later in the track it came apparent in my mind that it would be perfect for the shootout in the beginning of Roosters.

It was quite a task to shrink the shootout in the beginning of Owls, I cut it in half. Everything you see in the video is intended, worked out by trial and error or purely accidental. I didn't need to make one cut in the shootout scene with Frank Black, I just decided to cut straight to it when the music went ballistic. Other than that, it was untouched. Sometimes, you don't need to cut...which is nice.

All the footage is taken from Roosters and Owls, episode fifteen and sixteen from season two of Millennium. The track is called Midnight Runner by Pendulum. I titled the video: Owls & Roosters, It's Still Midnight. Enjoy!
