Watching The Bible pt 6

One thing that really bugs me is that I can't even grab good footage off this thing, it was so poorly shot and had such uneven production values and people not nearly pretty enough.

The Clive Owen “King Arthur” is not, imo, a very good movie in terms of plot or research (rant for another time) but it's certainly beautifully shot. So at one point, I wanted to vid it just because of the gorgeous footage. I wish that The Bible miniseries was the same, that it had given me hours of fantastic footage despite the terrible pacing and storytelling. But they couldn't even get that right, so once I'm done complaining about it, I'll have no further use for the thing.

But I WILL be making a vid containing footage from all the other Bible movies that somehow managed to remember women exist and do things in those stories. Which is most of them, which says a lot about how badly this one fell down on that subject.

If it was good, usable footage, I could still cut together all the very most horrifying scenes and set them to “Angels” by Within Temptation. Could I make that work?

Song Choices for the Girl Power vid

If I Were a Boy (Beyonce, although I originally intended to do a Narnia vid to this and at one point, had one nearly finished... here's a very rough version).
Candles in the Rain
Girl on Fire (the version without the utterly nonsensical rapping)
Better (by Plumb, I've already used this for SPN though)
Fully Alive (Flyleaf, if I was in the mood to do something *angry*)

Maybe something else, it depends on the tone I want to go for and the amount of footage I can acquire. This could take awhile.
