TWW Cast Tribute: "Walk On" -- Part 3 of Trilogy

This is the final installment of my Cast Tribute for the West-Wingers. This completes the Trilogy which began with praise to the WW characters in "Let the River Run." Next came the cast and show success in "Such Great Heights." 
Part 3 is "Walk On."  Farewell, creators, crew and cast, and characters. I know it aches, but you've got to leave it behind.

I bring this for your enjoyment, so PLEASE RATE / COMMENT here in LJ, my site or on YouTube. 

P.S.!!!  I'm traveling to Washington, DC for a few weeks. Any advice on cheapest but SAFE housing (hostels, motels, cheap hotels) and where the bad neighborhoods are, is appreciated.

Title: "Walk On"
Singer: U2
Genre: Cast Tribute
Post Date: August25, 2007
YouTube link:

And I know it aches
And your heart, it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on...
Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind

"Such Great Heights" -- TWW Cast Tribute (Pt. 2 of Trilogy)  About: The West Wing Cast

Song:  Such Great Heights
Singer: The Postal Service
Seasons: TWW S1-S7
Genre: Tribute
Post Date: July 31, 2007
Preview with  YouTube  or  Find Here

 This is Part 2 of my retrospective tribute to the cast (see "Let the River Run" for Part 1 of the Trilogy). This new video shows the actors at 'such great heights' during the awards shows. In its heyday, The West Wing won 13 Emmy awards in its first season and won many more. This made it the most honored drama in its first year.

This video also shows the cast actors behind-the-scenes as they film the show (includes bloopers). Has other media clips and an award montage. Comment, please. :-)

New West Wing Groups on YouTube
Hey guys, I created two new groups in YouTube. They are the first-ever West WIng-related groups on Youtube.  One's for general media that relates to The West Wing or its actors in interviews, etc. The other is specifically for fan videos.  If you already have an account at YouTube and have your own WW videos, why not add them to one of these groups?!  Or comment on the ones you see there?

1)  The West Wing
--Upload interviews, clips, behind-the-scenes and other videos that are only related to The West Wing (if the actor mentions TWW, or it was during their WW days, etc. Otherwise, if they don't discuss WW, there are other groups created specifically for that actor that you can upload to).

2) The West Wing Fanvideos
This will be a place where vidders can upload their WW fan-created videos for the cast, the couples, the tributes, etc. 

There's a discussion section, so if you'd like to see the group and participate, join these groups now! :-)

WW Video: "Take me back to the start"
This is my first WW vid of the New Year.  I have another one in the works, but that involves a lot of clip gathering and converting so it'll be awhile.  I'm not sure how I feel about this final product, but here it is, and I hope you'll give me feedback.

Premise:  The hallways are empty without our favorite WW staffers.  Took me a long while to get empty hall footage, hopefully it works.  Contains voice audios.

Vid recc
Hello folks. I just found this community recently. I'm a long time fan of The West Wing and decided to do a fanvid search upon recently reviewing s1. Such a wonderful series.

I don't vid the series but a friend of mine runs a multifandom site. One of her contributors did a humor vid for all of The West Wing characters to the song "Tubthumpin" I laugh every time I watch this vid. It can be found here: Marimba26 Misc page The vid is entitled "The Smartest People".

Hope you all enjoy and fb can be sent to the vidder through Marimba's email. Check out the rest of her site. Alot of excellent material for many fandoms.

Look forward to more great material from you all.

New TWW video -- Tribute to the Cast
This is my first try at doing a video with all of the West Wing characters. In honor of the November political elections here in the US, I followed what the majority wanted, according to my poll on video request. So I've finally completed this work. Pay close attention and spot some of your favorite characters!

Please comment! Feedback gives me inspiration. :-)

my very first West Wing video!!!

Hello all!

well, I just finished a new fanvid, my very first for the West Wing fandom.

Sugababes' "Breathe Easy"
Josh and Donna's relationship throughout most of the seventh season.

to download, go to MegaUpload (although it's a slightly giant file, 25.8mb. sorry!)
If anybody wants a download avalailable at lower quality, I'll set one up.

Enjoy, and don't forget to let me know what you think!!!

New: TWW JD video "Desire" -- in Dual-screen!

Did you love "Desire" in King Corn as sung by Ryan Adams? I did, and wanted to use it for a fanvid, but the episode scenes were already so good that any vid had to have an extra special something. For the first time I used a full-length side-by-side effect to capture the parallel lives of Josh and Donna, and those moments when their hopes and desires finally intersected. 

PREVIEW HERE  with YouTube   
A Downloadable version hasn't yet been uploaded because SaveFile is down, but when it's up, you'll find it HERE.

I assume most already saw the WW scenes, and I used slow-motion on the dual clips, so it'll be doable to follow (i.e., watch) two videos playing at once. JD apart/out-of-sync are on split-screen; JD back together on merged screen. I allowed J/D to switch left/right screen sides (no horizontal mirroring), to keep scenes as originally aired. I spent much time creating this, so I'll appreciate it if you'd please take a moment to comment & Rate the video. Feedback is love. :-)

Have made a new TWW video - not Josh and Donna this time but Josh and Leo!  Yes - it very definitely isnt a romatic clip - in fact its very angsty indeed and I made it after hearing the song played on the radio and not long after rewatching the Requiem episode of TWW.  I just immediately knew I had to use it.

So although the song and video are very melancholy, I hope you will see the sentiment behind them.  Basically the video is from Josh's POV - its set on the day of Leo's funeral, and it has Josh reflecting on his relationship with Leo over the years, and in particularly their ups and downs in the year leading up to the Election.  I really enjoyed making it - although I shed rather a lot of tears in the process - and I do hope you all enjoy watching it.

I DO have to say one thing - there is a brief glimpse of the white house gates towards the end of the piece which should not be there - however my video editing suite is temporarily out of order so I couldnt go back and re-edit the clip exactly as I wanted.  I will do it at some point in the future, so you could say this is the first version - final version will follow asap.

You can find the clip by following the link HERE - clips is called Numb.

TWW music videos
I made my first two TWW mvs last year and they were kindly hosted by Michelle at My Serendipity.

Now Ive made a couple more and you can find them HERE.  

A little background for 'Words .......'.    Its a little AU - I'm suggesting that Josh and Donna got together after The Inauguration in S4 - but now things are changing again.  Its from Donna's pov too.  

Some of you may have already seen the post ep mv for The Cold - but I wanted all my West Wing videos together.

Hope you like them.
