Hey Guys,

Have a look at my new Avengers video based on the 3rd series videotaped era, it was orginally created as an audio mix, but finally realised as a music video. The concept was to create something that made fans who don't look at the blackman episodes, take a proper look.
I aimed to capture the style, the flair and the fantastic banter between the two leads. Hope it makes you get out your old contender dvd's it took much longer than I could have guessed. I kept stopping to watch the episodes!

Hope the fans who weren't quite sure take a second look. Very Happy

Thanks, nice to hear your excited about seeing it, tried to inject the style of that era with it. Hope you enjoy it tonight.

As I said before it really did take ages as I kept watching the eps to find the right soundbites.

As the Blackman era contains most of my favourite episodes, this was a very enjoyable video, great choice of music.

Thanks for the comment, yere once I heard that piece I knew it was the closest to the videotaped music you could get. I didn't want to use any of Laurie Johnson's music as it wouldn't have been right but I also couldn't find the right feel with Johnny Dankworth. At least that would last long enough to make a proper music mix. I really wanted to capture an entire era in one vid and then the end as shown, but couldn't fit in a clip from every ep; it would have been just two fast.

Hope this has made you want to sit down tonight and watch an episode.

Whats your favourite Cathy ep?

From season 3, I love Brief for Murder, so well written and directed. Usually anything directed by Peter Hammond is one of my favourites. Love Mandrake, Man with Two Shadows, The Wringer, Dressed to Kill.

I've watched it a few times since you sent me the link (I was on vacation at the time, and I wasn't able to concentrate on it as well as I would have liked). It really is very good, and it did make me want to give the Cathys, for all intents my least favourite era, another watch (I've got about 11 other shows to givea try first, though, so not much Avengers for awhile).

Can I ask what you use to mix your videos? As I've only just started out with my few thus far, I'm curious to see what else is available out there to pick up and use.

Great video and I liked the music! I'm a big of the Cathy Gale era too. Some of my favorites are:

Mr. Teddy Bear, Dead On Course, The Golden Eggs, Brief For Murder, The Undertakers and The Nutshell. I haven't finished Season 3 yet.

Thanks for the comments guys, firstly I agree Peter Hammond is brilliant, anytime I see his name it's usually a mark of assured quality.

I'll have to think hard about my favourites as they are now all distorted in my head, I like a lot of the flawed eps which have some great scenes like the silencer scene in "the medicine men" with Merlin. Which should have been a classic line and hopefully is now I altered the soundtrack so it was more obvious.

Timeless, at the moment I use Final Cut Pro which quite frankly is the dogs. Avid comes close but hasn't yet convinced me. Though I shall be using it at uni, so who knows. What are the 11 other shows your about to watch, are any of them better than the Avengers? lol

Artanis, thanks I still haven't seen hardly any of the 2nd season, I really want to see "Mr Teddy Bear", whenever the dvd's are released or if I come across an old vid. Sorry to hear you haven't finished series 3, I ruined the ending for you, sorry about that. Confused

I thought this would be the easiest way of replying to you guys, hope I haven't confused you or come across like an arse.

Something I wish i'd done was to add the scene from "the grandeur that was rome" and solve the continuity issue some way! But perhaps that can wait for another time, man this is a long post!

What a great video, truly inspiring!

But I must ask you, what is your source? (Which DVD set?)
I own season three as the Contender 7 DVD box from the UK, but the
picture quality is nowhere near as good as seen in this film you made.

Thanks for your comment!
Looks like I own some sort of grading suite or have access to the negatives, I wish! No they are taken from the contender set, the same set you own Allard, I tried to encode it with the best quality I could to you-tube and judging by your comments I think I managed it.

Glad it inspired you, makes you wonder what sort of cool trailers we could have if the dvd's were eventually re-released!

If you still don't believe me watch out for the fly still present on the print!

I would love the Avengers to finally see justice done for it along the lines of the Sweeney transfer and dvd's like that with a huge booklet writen by Dave Rodgers then to David Smith and then handing over the reigns to Andrew Pixley to draw what has been a long saga to an end! I want the actual definitive edition! The story of the plight to release the entire surviving series.

Do you really want to know? Wink Well, I have to finish Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), Hugh Laurie's Fortysomething, the fifth season of I Dream of Jeannie, and a bit of one of the Saint sets I found on sale. Then I get to try out The Champions, Adam Adamant Lives! Blackpool, Secret Agent aka Danger Man, Ashes to Ashes, Sapphire and Steel, and, er, Shaun the Sheep (my elementary school librarian was British and showed us lots of Wallace and Gromit, so I have a weakness for little claymation animals). Well, you did ask. Wink I like R&H a great deal, but it's not up to par with The Avengers (what is?). I think that accolade could only go to Life on Mars.

But back to your software, I know very little about the different programs available out there, but it doesn't sound as if either of those have thrilled you to any great extent. I use Windows Movie Maker for mine, which is pretty easy to use and does the job. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't let you plop a clip at the start of the song, instead sticking everything at the start of the timeline, meaning I usually have to stick a placeholder in if I'm not constructing the video from the start (a nice long clip of Purdey and Gambit talking in the car has served me well). I have more ideas for videos, but I don't know that I'll be able to put together something as slick as yours. It would be great to have more lovely trailers on the DVDs, though, wouldn't it?

Most of these are great programmes! Not sure about Shaun though, Creature comforts is much better.

Keep meaning to watch all of Randall & Hopkirk, though have always been a fan of the later re-make with Bob & Vic, which was great but just like Bugs didn't happen at the right time, oh well!

I purchased the Dangerman part-work set and love the series. I do mean to see more of Saphire and Steel only seen the first assignment.

Blackpool is a legend of programe that first introduced me to mr David Tennant, he appears in the pilot ep of Randall & Hopkirk, which you probably know. As for Adam Adamant, i keep meaning to buy the dvd!

Life on Mars is of course amazing, but so is almost any othe Kudos show, Hustle, Spooks Moving Wallpaper/Echo Beach!

Perhaps I underplayed Final Cut, it is the best editing programe around really, and if your serious about the vids thats the best thing to get. Though you need to have a mac.

Never heard of Creature Comforts, and one of these days I'll have to check out the Randall and Hopkirk remake, which seems to have been successful, surprisingly. But I love the original Jeff and Marty as it is.

I'm hoping that I'll dislike Patrick McGoohan less after Danger Man. I didn't take to The Prisoner--it sort of peaked in the middle, and then got progressively more strange for strange's sake. But Blackpool looks fun for the musical numbers alone. That's what Doctor Who needs--more musical numbers!

But Kudos is definitely putting out brilliant stuff. I love Hustle--they're like little mini Ocean's Elevens. And you can't go wrong with Marc Warren! I'm hoping Ashes continues the trend.

Wow you've never heard of creature comforts, it's only like the first Ardman success! The basic concept is real people voice animals, it's really British so you may not get some of it, though apparently Candian humour is similar?

Here's the ad that started it!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zv2tdCEBkKg

As for the Randall and Hopkirk remake the first episode is hilarious, you keep guessing how and when Marty will die! Some of the last episodes are the closest tv has come to the Avengers since. I recommend you watch them! Former doctor Tom Baker is also in them!

The Prisoner is a masterpiece and the details about the production fascinating, battling between the sureal and the spy drama. Dangerman certainly helps you understand the origins of the Prisoner and by the end it is difficult not to respect the man.

I can't stop typing, Mark Warren's recent turn in "Wanted" was brilliant and this new programe he is in Mutual Friends is also excellent!
Sorta like a new "Cold Feet" if you've seen that?

I have just realised that Mutual friends is on tonight in 20 minutes, fantastic. Hope you get to see it second ep in it's shaping up to be great!

Oh, yes, I saw Creature Comforts when I was on vacation in Quebec, ironically. I missed the opening credits, though, so I didn't know what it was called. It was adorable. There was a little earthworm that said something or other was "complete pants" (one of my favourite British phrases ever since Random FrequentFlyer Dent took one look at her dad and said it).

Canadian humour is quite similar to British humour? Yes, I think so. It would be hard for it not to be, being a British colony and all. It has evolved, though, obviously, but I have to strongly object to Brian Clemens' assertion that Canadians "have no sense of humour." Particularly considering the fact that most of the comedians now working in Hollywood are Canadian. And then there's the Stargate series, of course. That's chock full of Canadian humour.

That's okay, I've already read about what happens at the end anyway.

And I hope you get to see Season 2, it has some great episodes.

I can not see how you and the others have the patience to put together such great videos! Even though I've had something floating in my head lately, I do not have the time or the know how to do what you have done. Amazing! Wonderful job saint..

Thanks again guys for the great comments, nice to hear i've done the show justice. Artanis thanks to PhilippaRM I am just watching Death Dispatch, one mercy for the show not being avaliable on dvd is there is no point in taking up copyright as far as i can see. So far the episode whilst completely different than any Avengers ep i've ever seen, it is more like "Dangerman!" Is good.

Kim thanks for the kind words, if you have an idea you should have a go, or pass the idea on to someone else who can realise it. Just be prepared to spend ages trying to get it right.
