When she contacted me, she had some very simple instructions. She gave me a song and said "I generally just want it to be funny, and for the girls to kick ass." Fine by me. I picked the version of the song (the modern revival recording as it had the most interesting instrumentation) and negotiated the cast, deciding upon Sydney Bristow, Starbuck, Veronica Mars, Zoe and Buffy.
To me, this vid was all about strong female roles in modern TV and for that reason Buffy was essential to the mix. The only problem was, I'd not seen any buffy. So after much stressing and binge watching, I finally worked out how the hell I was going to do this vid.
Vidding lots of shows is hard. I'm so bad when I have too much footage. This vid was really really difficult for me. Thankfully, bar a few scenes which still bug me, I think this vid came out really well. I hope you all like it :)
