Well, I finally found it! This was something I did around two years ago, a while after the Live At Wembley dvd had come out with the complete Highlander version of AKOM. So, I just re-edited the original magic video to fit the Highlander track edit. More as an exercise in seeing if I could recut stuff like this. And et voila!

So, just have it and enjoy it for what it is. I didn't have a nice dvd rip of the original video. Just something I found online.

You know, strangest thing is, I made this almost 2 years ago to the day! 25/5/04 Funny that it should turn up earlier tonight when I'd almost given up looking any further. Suddenly, it's there..!

Peace,
Adam.

That was great Adam. Really well done. I especially liked the bits you added in yourself, which helped to create a nice little extra dimension. :o)

Nicely done :)
I like the little slow-motion things you did, it's a shame that it's such bad quality, but the video fits well with this version :)

Not sure what you mean M90. I checked where you pointed out, but I only saw the video going along as per usual.

Unless you mean the "doors of time" bit where the footage is slowed and hazy. If you're wondering why it's like that, then I'll explain. It's because the only version in the official video where Freddie sings that line (in the blue top) is in a full powered delivery, ala the album version. But in the Highlander version, it's sung in a straight fashion. So, I slowed the footage and added the hazy effect to try and make it work. It kinda does and I'm pretty happy with it. Shame there wasn't another vid to borrow from, but that vcd copy I had downloaded ages ago was all I had.

Peace,
Adam.

Wow, I'm rather impressed.
The mixing is quite nice, and I'm half-tempted to start mangling other videos to match new tunes.

Cheers guys! If I can get hold of a full quality copy of the AKOM video, I'd love to redo this frame by frame! Thanks for the kind comments folks.

Peace,
Adam.
