Great Job!! Can't wait for Septmeber 3rd!!!
Video Diary: Denard's Trek (2011 Heisman Video)
This diary is fairly straightforward: Denard's 2011 Heisman Video
I've mashed up Denard's quest for the trophy with the trailers from the most recent Star Trek movie (which I loved, and the trailers were quite good). If you're interested in seeing the original source material, you can see the Trailers by clicking the following: Trailer #2 Trailer #3
Without further delay, onto the video:
Now, a few quick points of interest, as people had similar questions/points last time:
- The video is a mash of the first 1+ of Trailer #2, and the last 1:50+ of Trailer #3.
- No particular reason for the HS Denard + Michigan Denard highlight mix at the beginning, I just liked how similar many of the plays were.
- I tried to avoid redundancy with the highlights from the Hype Video, but unfortunately Denard was so much of that video, overlap couldn't be helped. I tried to find some different angled shots though.
- The repetition of the ESPN clips with the jersey and shoes, yeah, I know, but it just worked so well, and it's rare to have such good footage to mash-up.
- If you don't like Star Trek, or like Trek but hate the new movie ... tough
- Every time I hear "enlist in Starfleet" with the trophy ... I get chills
- That's Erin Andrews speaking at the end, in case you were curious
- The Robot? Original trailers were from "Bad Robot" productions. Plus, it's the robot.
- Quick shoutout to my boy mgouser "Chicago Maize and Blue" for his help/feedback.
Thanks for watching and commenting, per usual it's incredibly appreciated. Believe it or not I do take your comments and feedback into account going forward, and I'm open to any suggestions you have for future video ideas. I can put pretty much anything together provided there's video of it on YouTube. Thanks again.
Impressive. Michigan fans are unrivaled in their ability to crank out quality hype videos.
Agreed, Super awesome video, thanks for your work! Maybe batman for the next mashup?
id live to see one that uses clips from back in the day and now. kind of like the "where amazing happens" but not. it would be cool to see tom harmon next to denard.
THAT! Gets me pumped up! I can't wait untill the season starts so Denard can prove that he can play QB in any style of offense. Heart+Determination+Toughness+Class= Michigan Football.
I know Denard's not that big into hype, but I hope he sees this.
Well done. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed it. I liked the correlation of the hs plays and some of his runs from last year too.
That was awsome!
Truly epic. Amazing job good sir
Wow, I didn't give it much hope before I watched it, but it was very well done.
And the hype video of 2011 goes too...Hoke saves Lives. Great job. Liked how it all tied in. Not a big star trek fan, however aMAIZEd at your work.
Great! Thank You!
With all the trying times we've dealt with as Michigan football fans over the last few years, I hope everyone appreciates what a truely awesome talent we have right now. This video was awesome! I feel fortunate to get to watch this young man play for The University of Michigan for the next 2 seasons.
Thanks for putting this together.
Not sure if you remember the Rilo Kiley "better sons and daughters" hype video from a couple of years ago, the song was perfect. It would be cool to see an updated version of that. Keep up the great work.
There was a version done last year as well. I can't remember the name of the poster, but he said he would get another one going for this year, as well as a hype video with a new song. Personally, I can't imagine a better hype video than those Rilo Kiley ones, and I think given the lyrics and theme of the song the timing this summer couldn't be better. I liked the OP's video a lot, so don't take this the wrong way, but the Rilo Kiley ones give me the chills each time I watch them (which is fairly often).
... ones were excellent. I loved those videos, both the original and the one shortsgoblue did last year. I don't have any intentions on doing a Rilo Kiley version right now, b/c as maineandblue said, shorts mentioned he was working one another version for this season and I didn't want to step on anyone's toes. When I did the hype video I posted last week w/ the Armageddon speech, I wanted to break the mold a bit and do my own version of the hype video, but if there's no Rilo version posted by the weekend before the Western game, I may put some work into it that week and see what I come up with.
Thanks for taking the time to put that together. It was really cool!
one of these hype videos I get that much more excited for Sept. 3. Awesome job, keep up the good work.
Truly good work.
Great job. You have a gift, Hoke Saves Lives. Any other videos you would make would be greatly appreciated! I trust your judgement.
Man I can't wait for the new season to start. And the new Trek movie. I guess until Sept. 3rd, I'll just have to read MGoBlog and dig my copy of Star Trek out of the DVD collection.
This one is very good
I love that: "What is your name? Hahaha"
Really well done.
