CTV Challenge #4: Die Zeit Steht Still  
Vid Title:  Die Zeit steht Still (Time stands still)
Song Title: Die Zeit Steht Still
Artist: Untoten
Size: 20mb
Spoilers: all the way to the end
Summary: Tried to have a happy/dark doctor vid. He can make time stand still when he wants to. But he also goes around being dark when defeating the bad guys (Ich tanze auf eure Knochen : I dance on your bones ; in tausend Farben, eure Knochen bricht : and break them into a thousand colours)

(this version's slightly different, fiddled with colours a bit...just testing ^^ also a bit higher quality)

AN: since my german is only okay and not perfect, this vid doesn't stick very closely to the lyrics, but I think it's almost better that way. a few flickers again...ones I can't find in adobe, but they're there afterwards!
 Also, 2nd half is better than the first...sudden burst of final inspiration ^^

:-D thanks a lot! I'm very glad that it worked out in the end ^^

(I can't help being a doctor/Rose shipper at times '^^)

Hmm... "Untoten"... never heard of them oO
Anyway, I really loved your video! It shows the Doctor's dark sides just perfectly! The refrain is quite dark and gloomy while the chorus seemes so light and fragile.
I think you managed the german lyrics quite well :) Of course it's hard to show "blood on my skin" etc etc, but the symbolism worked perfectly! Very good job, especially the ending was so powerful! Just great!

Thanks a lot!! it means a lot to me that you could see what I was trying to get at (and that my german understanding isn't too crappy ^^) thanks muchly for your feedback! *grinns*

The only reason I'd heard of Untoten is from my sister, who listens to loads of metal-ish bands and is constantly finding new, unheard-ish of ones...since I couldn't find a good In Extremo song to do a vid to (the only German stuff I've got, otherwise I've got a bit of French, but I felt like having more of a challenge), so I turned to her, and she gave me a small random cd concert ^^

Hehe not at all... it was quite good. You're from switzerland? ^^ I took a look at your profile. What's your mothertongue then? (Sorry, I'm just curious^^)
Hm... I'm not quite up to date when it comes to music, but I think Untoten is some kind of an underground band. But sounds quite intersting.
I would have loved to do this challenge, but unfortunatly I only got english or german songs on my PC... so that wouldn't be too much fun, I guess *g*

well my mothertongue is English actually (I'm a Brit who's spent practically her whole life abroad (born in Holland, though can't speak dutch anymore, moved away when 3ish to Switzerland!) and I live in the French part, so that's my second language, with German in third, being what I learnt at school up until a year ago when I graduated and no longer needed to learn it ^^ I was always a bit crap at it, though I loved German...there, summary of my life (which I've given waaaay too often '^^ every time someone goes, "you're English! where you from in England?" and then I take a deep breath and tell them the whole story, or, if not in the mood, I just say "Nowhere" ^^)
hmm...I went on a bit...heh

you could still have done a German vid ^^ or even asked for something else (I've got quite a few french ones that would have worked...really wanted to use some vegastar, but lost the cd...)

*g* sorry :P but it's quite interesting to hear that!
Hm... yeah, I could have. But it's mostly like that: I just found a vid and realize that it's too late for the challenge xD bleh, well hopefully next time :)
