Video: Space: Above And Beyond
Audio: 'We Might Fall' by Ryan Star

One thing before I start: 1080p BITCHEZ!!!1!

Another video intended to raise awareness for an obscure show. S:AAB was made in 1995 and had slipped entirely from my memory until recently. It was made by the X-Files team but followed the Fox trend of being unceremoniously cancelled before it's time. It's based off the same book that Starship Troopers was based off, but seems a lot more grounded in realism in tone and implementation. Expect Top Gun meets Starship Troopers meets Battlestar Galactica. In fact, it's pretty fair to say this is BSG-lite; while it doesn't live up to what Battlestar becomes, it's certainly a show before it's time, dealing with similar themes of character development, progression and military overtones. I remember the from my childhood, but I don't recall how dark and depressingly poignant the show actually was; I'm surprised I was even allowed to watch it.

Regarding the video, I focused on the theme of soldier mortality that is prevalent in the show (so many funeral scenes; practically everyone who isn't part of the main cast is redshirt with a crosshair on their back). With so many pilots that fall around the Five-Eight, the squadron's reputation becomes legendary, but even they can't stand tall forever. No fancy effects on this one; I managed to acquire the series in HD and it didn't feel like it needed to be an FX-driven video. The song choice was inspired from Kahesha's BSG video, which matched the tone of the show unbelievably well, and hopefully I've captured the same mood.
