View Full Version : Need help with scenes for a music video.

I am working on a new TMNT video and I need help with a few clips. The song that I am using is called Let My People Go. Here are the lyrics:

Thus saith the Lord:
Since you refuse to free my people
All through the land of Egypt...

I send the pestilence and plague into your
house, into your bed, into your streams,
into your streets, into your drink, into your bread, Upon your cattle, on your sheep, upon your oxen in the field,
Into your dreams, into your sleep,
Until you break, until you yield.
I send the horde, i send the swarm
Thus saith the lord.

Once i called you brother,
Once i thought the chance to make you laugh.
Was all i ever wanted.

I send the thunder from the sky
I send the fire raining down

And even now I wish that God
had chose another,
Serving as your foe on his behalf
Is the last thing that I wanted...

I send a hail of burning ice
On ev'ry field, on ev'ry town.

This was my home
All this pain and devastation
How it tortures me inside
All the innocent who suffer
From your stubbornness and pride...

I send the locusts on the wind
Such as the world has never seen
On ev'ry leaf, on ev'ry stalk
Until there's nothing left of green
I send my scourge, I send my sword
Thus saith the Lord!

You who I called brother
Why must you call down another blow?

I send my scourge, I send my sword

Let my people go

Moses and God:
Thus saith the Lord.

You who I called brother
How could you have come to hate me so?
Is this what you wanted?

I send the swarm, I send the horde...

Then let my heart be hardened
And never mind how high the cost may grow
This will still be so:
I will never let your people go...

God and Moses:
Thus saith the Lord:

I will not let:

God, Moses and Rameses:
Let My (Your) People go!

I can't think of any scenes for the cattle part and the burning fire/ hail parts. Any tips will be really helpful to me.

So...a Turtle music video set to the very specific Let My People Go song from Prince of Egypt?

Can I ask what made you decide to do that mash-up?

I thought it fit the Splinter/Shredder or Karai/Leonardo conflict well, still haven't decided on which conflict I'm going to use yet. Also all of my other ideas for this video were already done by other people on youtube so yeah.

Some suggestions for the fire part, The Shredder Strikes, Part 2, the roof gets set on fire. The Shredder Strikes Back, Part 2, Shredder sets the Second Time Around shop on fire. Return to New York, Part 3, Shredder's palace get set on fire. Rogue in the House, part 2, the ship gets set on fire. Pretty much look at the fights with Shredder. For the hail part, The Ancient One, Leonardo walks though a hail storm.

If you're looking for inspiration, check out Yoraee's awesome music video.


By the way, what program are you using?

I've completed the video. I will post a link once it's done uploading to Youtube. The program that I used is called Kdenlive. It's a very basic program for Linux. I used to have another youtube account called thefootclan, but it got banned due to copyright bs.

It's... good? The song doesn't work though; like, at all.
