VID: "Keeper of the Fire" (Multi)

This vid premiered at VividCon earlier this year, and it has taken me approximately forty eleventeen months to get it online. Sorry! Grad school happened!

Song: "He's a Keeper of the Fire" by Buffy Sainte-Marie
Source: Multi

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush... (Exodus 3:2)

Download: right-click and save, please. [~34mb, watch with VLC player]
OR watch

Notes: Dedicated to renenet for being awesome and prodding me to finish this vid for all of the two years or so it languished on the timeline, and to my mother for giving me the song and telling me to do something with it. Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to offer me comments and feedback along the way!

He's as heavy as a lead weight, baby
He's as skinny as a wire
He's a prophet of a new day, baby
He's a keeper of the fire

He's got a funny kinda voodoo, baby
You oughta see him at the zoo
He's got a heavy kinda hoodoo, baby
And he can lay it on you

He can say it like an angel, baby
He can say it like a blowhorn
He can see a-seven devils, baby
And never even give a whole turn

Been haunted like a razor, baby
He's been tested in the blood
He's a walker on the hot coals, baby
And he's a-heavenly bound

I saw him walkin' in the valley, baby
I could see him through the trees
I saw him talkin' to the moon there, baby
He was walkin' on his knees

He can play it like a rainbow, baby
He can play it like a clown
He can play it like a river, baby
And he can follow you down

He's as heavy as a lead weight, baby
He's as skinny as a wire
He's a prophet of a new day, baby
He's a keeper of the fire

This vid uses a bunch o' prophets, seven in all -- it seemed an appropriate number -- from the following sources:

Carnivale (Ben Hawkins)
The Dead Zone (Johnny Smith)
Heroes (Peter Petrelli)
Joan of Arcadia (Joan Giraldi)
Miracles (Paul Callan)
Supernatural (Sam Winchester)
Wonderfalls (Jaye Tyler)

Comments and feedback always appreciated!

I just came back here to rewatch this vid, and I feel terribly remiss that I didn't comment when I first saw it. This is one of my favorite vids, ever. I love the subject matter. I love Buffy Ste. Marie. I love the source material. I love how you rocked the internal movement throughout. I love the meta of it all.
