Vid: Starlight  
This is an old video of mine and one of the first. I'm reposting it here because YouTube removed the sound and I finally managed to get it uploaded to Imeem.

I made this in August 2006 after having just bought Muse's most recent album at the time Black Holes and Revelations. Immediately Starlight was a standout track and to this day is still one of my favourites. I knew it was perfect for Mulder and Scully so I began what would have been my second music video ever. This was made painstakingly using Windows Movie Maker - never again! That programme seriously sucks! I was inspired by boushh's style of editing for his X-Files music video Clocks, largely dictated by the rythmn of the song and the relative simplicity of the transitions. Hopefully the vid should pulse with the beat of the track throughout. Even although my style and technique may have changed over the years, Starlight remains one of my favourite videos that I have edited to date. The tune gets me everytime.

I hope you guys still continue to enjoy it and will benefit from being able to stream it with audio intact!

What a great video! I love the clips you chose and the song is so very XF!

Mulder on the beach from Amor Fati is the prettiest pictures of all pictures, and it's looking so good here with the music! Sigh.

This is my favourite video ever. Someone rec'ed it to me last year and its what got me addicted to fan vids. I'd never really bothered with them before. So thanks. LOL. Its really awesome!

Thank you so much! I am really glad it got you looking at fanvids - that seems to be the main oart of the fandom I hang around in! There is some fabulous videos out there that never get enough views!

This is a really old one of mine though - I've done like 20 after it. So it does look a bit amateur - but I achieved everything I wanted at the time. A big part of my love for this is the genius that is this song and Muse being a bit more upbeat! I feel like getting married to this song lol!
