I thought I would be the first YNTV entry to be uploaded, since I was really scrambling to get this done, but noooo, apparently there are five others up before me

Ahem anyway.

This little sucker is done! Whoo. And just in time before the deadline, too. Because I have a shorter deadline than the others. I'm leaving today *(Edit: Sorry I mean TOMORROW, XD) for a three-week-holiday, so that means I can't edit in that time.

OK I know what you're thinking. 'Effects diet my ASS,' and you're right, for someone who's apparently exhausted with effects, she's sure spent a lot of time putting them in. However, I really wanted to try out the 3D effects, and so I decided to balance it out with other effects. And this song also seemed ... effecty, to me. xD OK, OK, so I just went with my instinct. Don't worry I have quite a few effectless videos in the making, just hang tight.

...In fact, I was actually hoping this would be a No Effects challenge...
But I was still just as excited when I saw we'd have to make an instrumental video. I'd been itching to make an instrumental for ages, but never really got around to doing it...And I panicked a fair bit because I didn't have any idea what to do xD I considered Muse stuff, then changed my mind and went for (what I thought was) the easy route.

meh, this wasn't easy, but nor was it hard, I guess... However it was downright enjoyable. I love this song. And I picked it also partially because Coldplay is one of my favorite bands and I found it absolutely blasphemous that I haven't vidded to their stuff yet :O

Ooh and, also...I know we were STRONGLY encouraged to use voiceovers, and there are none in this video. Now, I did think about this, and I realized, 'what quotes would I put in there anyway? Some cliche, cheesy, over-used emotional bit of dialouge that everyone's heard before? Not gonna happen.' I decided to just let the clips speak for themselves and resonate love and life and all that other groovy jazz :]

but moving on...So, you see those pretty little effects? Like the ones at 0:43? 3D effects, baby. CatGv's video pretty much blew me away, and, well, one thing led to another. I decided to get off my lazy ass and watch a tutorial to see how it was done. I swear, mucking around with that thing was SO. FUN. =D So thanks, Cat, and EVERYONE GO CHECK OUT HER SEXTASTIC VIDEO = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoHzLS...

Anyway...I suppose that's all. I can't think of anything else to ramble on. Oh, no, wait, I can!!
You're not going to believe this. I started rendering this, went to sleep, when I woke up IT WAS STILL RENDERING WTF XD Dear God my Vegas is slow.

Oh, and I got a bit lazy towards the end...hope it isn't too noticeable ^^"

Song: Life in Technicolour
Artist: Coldplay
Footage: Various

Heh...For some reason I REALLY love the El Dorado parts, probably because the movie is my current drug (and so is the pairing, but that's besides the point X3)

PS/ I actually never thought that the scene with Kiara & Kovu in the cookie cutters would be so popular...xD
