Title:  We Found Love
Song:  We Found Love - Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris
Fandom:  William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet
Summary:  For never was there a tale of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo



I have been having issues making a downloadable copy of this vid.  Every file I made was ginormous; if you have any advice on encoding an HD video file to a nice small file size (I couldn't get it down below 100 MB), I'm all ears.  As soon as I figure it out I'll post it up.  Thanks for watching!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! It means so much to know that people are watching your stuff. The movie blew me away the first time I saw it, and I've always wanted to vid it but could never find the perfect song. [Enter Rihanna]. Thanks again!

I was so excited when I saw this vid on the program. I've been looking so much forward to seeing it, and it was even better than I dared hope! The song is such a great fit, lyrically of course but also style-wise, and I love the way you used the music to divide the vid up into sweet quiet vs. harsh and bleak -- so powerful! And the ending gave me chills. This movie is one of my all-time favorites, and this vid really does it justice.

If you remember at all, I would dearly love a nudge when you have a download available.

Yay! Thanks for your comments! There were so many great scenes that worked well with the fast pace of the song. The movie is so unabashedly in your face and visually stunning that it was hard not to use everything.

I've been messing with different sizes and codecs trying to get the file size down. I've never vidded HD before, so I don't really know how to make it smaller. I'll definitely give a head's up when I post a download link.

Thanks again!

Yes! I was all nostalgic too when I rewatched. I was obsessed with Claire Danes in high school. A lot of people hated on her performance, but I don't think they could have found a better Juliet.

When I showed the vid to my BFF, she jumped at the gunshot. *fist pump*

Thanks for watching!

Thanks for watching. Now that you mention it, there is a lot of water in this film! Heh. Still working on the encoding, but I'll be sure to hit you up when I get it right. Thanks again!

You could use keepvid.com to download the mp4 from youtube and then re-up it as a version for people to download. That's kind of a backwards way, but at least the filesize would be small!

I watched this last night and it is such a beautiful vid! The song is perfect and the way you approached the vid just hit me right in the feels. Awesome work.

What a beautiful vid! Great choice of song for the film, and just fantastic editing to it. Made me want to dig out the DVD and watch it again.

Total fail for not saying this sooner but I loooove this vid!! Perfectly captures this song and the visuals are stunning especially in the way they move with the music. One of my favorites from last year's CVV!

Also I have to tell you, your CVV for this year is the BEST title I've ever seen for a vid and I am dyyyyying to see it! I LOVE Regina and her being a sexy dominatrix is going to be the best thing ever, I'm sure.

Hey, no worries. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully this year's Club Vivid entry lived up to the expectation? :)

YESSSSSSSSSS SOOOOO MUCH!!! Ask anyone, I freaked the fuck out and it was AWESOME! You showed off all her sexiness and there was SWAN QUEEN (I was cheering loudly during all of those scenes) and it was just the perfect vid whenever I want to be overwhelmed with how hot she is. I looooove it, it was one of my two favorite vids of CVV!
