Thank you Heather and Julia!

I love Desmond and Penny. They're one of my favorite Lost ships. I just always loved their story and how Des faced and overcame so many obstacles just to be with Penny.

Really great summary of Desmond's journey. You did really well on combining voiceovers and lyric use

Thank you Jemma and Karolina!
I love this song because of the music/beats and I thought those would be perfect to use to tell Des' story. The lyrics just seemed perfect for Desmond's story.

Ooh! Superb vid! I never would've thought of doing a Desmond vid for this contest, but you summarized his journey so wonderfully! A great idea, perfectly done!

Thank you Emma!
This was a really tough contest.I thought really hard on it and I just kept coming back to Desmond and his journey. I just think he had a really interesting storyline.

Thank you Eryn! I'm glad it made you feel nostalgic for Lost. I still love making Lost vids, so it makes me very happy to see that people still enjoy watching them.

I'm finally getting around to seeing this, and I'm glad I did! I loved the lead-in with the fast clips and the VO's as the song built up....and how you captured so many of the Des/Penny scenes as well as some of Desmond himself. I was surprised when the vid ended because I was hoping for more, but I guess that's the mark of a good vid! Nice work!

Thanks Jen!
I'm glad you enjoyed the vid. I don't always do a lot of beat use but this video with it's faster instrumental just called for those kinds of quick cuts. The VO's were tough to put in because I had to try to sync them with my cuts. But it was fun to do.

I love how so much of Desmond's journey revolves around Penny and trying to get back home to her.

I understand what you mean about the ending. When I originally was working on this I did think about extending the ending. I played with it and tried to mix in some of the instrumental from the front to that last section to make it longer, but I wasn't pleased with the quality, so I kept it to the shorter version. I would have liked to have shown more of Desmond and Penny's time together post-island and in sideways.
