Tribute Video: Universal Monsters

Under my vidder alias "Jetpack Monkey", I recently created a fanvid for Universal's classic monster movies, set to Rob Thomas's "Ever the Same." I chose the song because I wanted something modern and poppy to create a juxtaposition with the Gothic imagery (in point of fact, I really kind of hate the song). I've embedded it below.

If you have trouble viewing the video on Classic-Horror, it is also available as a 26MB Quicktime file (right-click the link and select "Save as..." from the menu).

Clips are taken from Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), The Mummy (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Son of Frankenstein (1939), The Wolf Man (1941), Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948), and Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954).

That ...

was terrific. I expected a montage of scenes chosen to cleverly match the music, and there was some of that. But the rapid montage of faces towards the end? That was done with LOVE. Great work.

"He went for a little walk! You should have seen his face!"

Exceptional

I have to admit a certain degree of "gansehaut" (as they say in Germany)  on watching the last 40 seconds or so, a carefully selected montage of the faces of Universal that made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, quite emotional actually.

I wonder if I could come up with an equally impressive Hammer equivalent?...probably not.

i made a video for my band

i made a video for my band back in 2004 that is similar to this video with lots of Universal clips http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrrmqZXJ2CY

About that tune.............

Okay, nice work on the video piece. Smooth editing, and ya' really grabbed the more notable (and used) pieces of the films. But that song? Not sure it gives you the juxtaposition you were lookin' for in the "gothic scenes" with "modern music" deal. But heck, you can always change the song, right? Good work there, I enjoyed it regardless.
