I was so convinced I'd be able to resist the lure of Merlin. Oh, how wrong I was.

Of course, it's all [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock's fault, with her dastardly awesome epic Drastically Redefining Protocol. Which I love. With the fire of a thousand very hot suns. So, with her kind permission, I made a trailer.






Drastically Redefining Protocol Trailer
Length: 1:13
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Summary: Modern!AU. In which Prince Arthur meets Merlin and all hell promptly breaks loose.
Spoilers: Hmm, not really.
File size: 27 MB
With massive thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock for the love, and [livejournal.com profile] lim for all the help. ♥

ETA - I did not get my act together to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] 14valentines this year, which is an epic fail on my part. So, technically this isn't part of that worthy endeavour, but it is in spirit. Go check out the community!

I'm one of those (many) people who were introduced to the concept of a fanfic trailer by your very own 'Hindsight' vid. Not only introduced but blown away actually:) So I was thrilled to see this, especially considering the source fic and I wasn't disappointed. This was fantastic. The paparazzi angle of it all, capturing the hilarity *and* the sweetness of the story. I could kiss you!

That is SO FREAKING BRILLIANT. *dances* I especially love the bit you have of Merlin (okay Colin :>) on the steps with the camera overlay, focusing in and out on him. I just, I adore how you do so much with suggestion and hinting, and the music is perfect. ♥

This is so lovely. I adore the use of colors.
And the footage from the DVD-Extras really gives you the paparazzi feeling.

Perfect trailer for a perfect story. *g*

Btw, what song did you use?

Date: 2009-02-03 02:53 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] zoetrope.livejournal.com
Thanks! And the song is Once Around The Block by Badly Drawn Boy.

You already know how I feel about this, but I feel it necessary to talk about how fucking MINDBLOWLY COOL THIS IS some more. Seriously! So cool! I can't decide what I like best about it: the song (lotsa people wondering what the song is, btw); the timing; your massively clever use of the paucity of available clips of these two; the way you made London glittery and beautiful and like something out of a romantic comedy of the highest-budget kind, or how coy this is. I adored it. Now, I will go watch it a million more times.

This really is so beautiful - I have two quesitons! First - what is that amazing song that you used for that song? And two - can you please tell me (it's OK if you lie) that you somehow composited a newspaper, then like stuck it in a newsie's stack and took the pictures that way? Because I was totally amazed by that (because I'm a nerd). Reeeally gorgeous.

Unless I'm much mistaken it's Badly Drawn Boy's "Once Around the Block" from the album Hour of the Bewilderbeast.
