Hi all. Here’s my entry into the www.Mashstix.com Mashup Challenge. It’s also my first ever video mash. Been wanting to give the ol’ video mash a go for a while, so saw this competition and thought here’s the ideal opportunity! ;o) So, here it is. Thought I’d give Iyaz a more upbeat feel and The Veronicas – Untouched seemed to be the perfect tempo / match I was looking for. After a little cutting of the Iyaz pella, I also decided to use the mental version at the beginning – it seemed to lead into The Veronicas mental nicely. After that, it was just trying to match the Iyaz vocals to the mental. Once I’d finished the mash, there started the hardest part – my first video mash. Decided to give Sony Vegas a try and, despite my PC not really being up the mark (yes, I have a new video card on order!!), I finally managed to track the video to the vocals and map in the Veronicas non-singing parts to try and match into the storyline. Never thought I’d read myself typing that!! – don’t I sound all ‘lovey’, darling! Anyway, after over a weeks work, and no actual paid work being done, this is the result and I gotta say I’m rather proud of it. I’m sure it isn’t the best video mash you’ve watched, but, for the first attempt, it’s not bad – surely!! As always, any comments or feedback welcome. Oh, and if you like it, pleeeaaaseeeee don’t forget to vote for it at…
