I'm new and this is my first post here but I am a super keen editor and hope to pursue this professionally after university. Anyway I had a look around this folder and noticed that people posted videos where it is all their own footage so I don't know if what I am doing is completely wrong to be posting here.
Anyway, the point is that I don't have my own footage so I edit from dvd's I have. As I am a huge fan of The X Files I edit alot of x-files based videos. Now I understand this is different from filming your own footage but there are alot of great editors out there who work with tv shows and we try to challenge ourselves artistically. I use alot of different scores, edit with Ulead, and try to attain something from the show through editing.
I hope that all makes sense and you'll be able to approach these videos from and editing point of view more than anything else. It's pretty hard work going through 200 hours of footage to get to that one clip you wanted. I hope alot of the desired effects came across relatively clearly and I would love to know what you all thought.
This one I did about a year and a half ago, I crossed over footage from the x files with Romeo + Juliet. It involved a great deal of cutting both video and sound. I realise parts of the video are distorted but it was made at I time when I was still getting used to the editing software.
YouTube - X-Files - Mulder + Scully / Romeo + Juliet
This is a short video using a Hans Zimmer score to basically reflect on the relationship. I made use of voice over and slow motion effect to give the video and overwhelming sense of nostalgia on the characters epic journey.

This video made extensive use of the epic score to Crash by Mark Isham. I made use of ethereal clips together with a great number of varied transitions so that the characters almost dissappear into the landscape of which they are a part whilst emphasising the importance and extent of human emotion. I'd love to know what you think of this one and how you felt at the end. I used alot of coloration on certain clips.

This is my most recent creation. It was based on the feelings that are evoked by Debussy's Clair De Lune. I understand there is a sound issue that gets transmitted through YouTube, but again thoughts on this would be great. Hopefully the stillness in the music was conveyed through the editing of their relationship, again extensive use of light effects on the film and I included text passages also.

I have more but would love to know what you thought editing wise of some of these. Maybe I'm completely wrong in posting these here? But it's all about the editing right?
Thanks for reading and/ or watching!
