This is something I've been tinkering with for a long while now. Ever since BIONICLE's return was announced officially, I knew I wanted to do something to celebrate its comeback. I've been a fan of the line since 2005 - a decade now - and it's held a special place in my heart ever since that day I picked up issue 22 - "Monsters in the Dark". At first I thought of making a music video, but I’d done that so many times before… and anything I could do, Vrahno’s already done better with his own music videos. Then a little seedling of in idea sprouted in the magnificent garden that is my brilliant mind: Vakama saying something about the legend of the Bionicle while the new BIONICLE logo flashed in the background. The concept grew from there.
What I've edited here is a compilation of sorts, a mash-up of some Generation 2 dialogue with various videos from Generation 1 - my way of saying "Farewell!" to BIONICLE's initial ten-year run and transitioning into Generation 2. I wanted to showcase some of the more prominent moments from BIONICLE history in a linear fashion, and I think I did that pretty well.
The music I used is the Interstellar trailer edit of Confidential Music’s “View from the Voyager”. I added in most of the sound effects myself (sound editing is really fun!). I used the highest quality sources of video I could find for this, so watch it in HD!
Love it? Like it? Think I could do better? Lemme know what you think!
