Underworld - 7 Days To The Wolves Fan Video Remastered

A while back we brought to you a brilliant fan Underworld 7 Days To The Wolves Fan Video.  This amazing fan video uses 7 Days to the Wolves Nightwish - Dark Passion Play - 7 Days to the Wolves by Nightwish as the soundtrack and footage from the three Underworld movies.

John The Rogue Demon Hunter revisited his masterpiece remastering it and making the vid even better!

  • He improves the scene transitions making them seamless.
  • The timing is impeccable even the steps are now in time with the music.  In particular I love the timing with the moment latter in the video when Selene lands in the water... just spectacular!
  • There is now a juxtaposition between the intimate moments of Lucian and Sonja and the torture moments.

What is a Vid

Vids, Vidders, and Vidding is a growing cultural expression of fandom, music, and video.  See an example above.

A vid is a short video that tells a narrative by combining the video from a Movie, TV show, or Web Series and a song for the audio track setting the tone and direction of the story.  In other words it's a cross medium mashup.

Vidders are those artists / fans who cut together the vids whereas vidding is the act of producing a vid.

Cultural Advantages

  • Fans can express and play in the franchises that they love.
  • It becomes a great promotional vehicle for both the music artist and the franchise.
  • It enhances our cultural experience of both video content and music.

Controversy

  • There is much fear, uncertainty, and doubt surrounding the topic.
  • Fear of reprisal from the copyright holders.
  • Fear amongst copyright holders of loosing control over their content and loosing money.

What We Need

  1. Recognize the cultural value of vids.
  2. Get over our fears.
  3. Open a dialogue to come up with a compromise that will allow both parties to win.

Thanks to John The Rogue Demon Hunter from the community at Project: Shadow.  This amazing fan video uses 7 Days to the Wolves Nightwish - Dark Passion Play - 7 Days to the Wolves by Nightwish as the soundtrack and footage from the three Underworld movies.

I love how the entire video is like a meta contemplation by Selene about the days to come in the war with the Lycans and the causes behind the conflict that started the war in the first place.

The opening was nice.  I particularly liked the use of the text "Underworld" to help give context for those not familiar with the movies.

I really enjoyed that he features the love story that underpins the conflict both in the past and what fuels the present conflict.

Featuring Vincent is also a nice touch since he is the antagonist throughout.

Overall what a great job and a beautiful homage to the Underworld story and Nightwish.
