    Default Fan made SGU opening sequence!

    OK, so I got a little bored, and decided to create a full 1 minute opening sequence for Stargate Universe.

    SPOILER WARNING: The clip includes snips from the entire 3 part premiere

    You can check my result here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGb6T2S-yAg

    Comments are welcome.

    I do wish people would sometimes accept what we're given. SGU doesn't really need a full intro. Just gives us another minute of the show!

    But still, that intro's not bad. Show cases the budget/effects of SGU quite well actually.

    Opening sequences tend to show short, dramatic scenes of maybe one or two seconds, rather than longer scenes. You don't want the audience to know what they just saw...just that it was cool.

    Other than that, it was a good first attempt.

    I didn't create this because I think SGU misses a full intro, I like the current "previously" and right into the action very much;
    This is just something that I thought about doing since hearing that short music in the 3rd ep.

    Tough crowd

    Sorry I thought it was dull and focused too much on the characters crying and pulling the constipated looking 'anguish' faces.
    Meh.

    I think that it would be better if you had more episodes to work with with more action, but come on guys its not that bad

    needs to kick in to some action with faster music though that is hard with the material you have maybe some of the Icarus attack

    Thumbs up Re: Fan made SGU opening sequence!

    I think it is good considering you only had only the clips from the three parts of Air to work with

    The video clips were good, i think less clips from the planet in episode 3 and more clips from them being on the ship wouldve been better, but you do only have 3 episodes to work with, so it wasnt bad

    I thought the music was too slow and not dramatic, like it was trying to be dramatic but wasnt, better quality music wouldve helped

    The editing was pretty good, you stayed just long enough on each clip, although a few from the planet went on too long
    The whole intro seemed to flow together, it didnt feel like i was just watching random clips

    The names for the actors would be good to have under them or near them in the first clip that they appear in

    I think it would turn out great with more episodes to work with and higher quality music

    My stupid computer is being...stupid.
    It's not playing any youtube clips. It keeps saying "Install latest flash player". I do, but still nothing. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!
    I hate technology.

    What people don't seem to realize is the lack of opening sequences doesn't actually give the producers an extra minute to work with, it gives the advertisers an extra minute instead. Still, it's not a complete loss. More advertising time means slightly more show stability. I guess.
    If you've seen a Jeff O'Connor or a JeffZero or a Jeff Zero or a JeffZeroConnor elsewhere on the net, there's a considerable chance it's me.

    but the visual was good

    Given how they stretch certain shots "For scale" and continuously show us the outside of the sip. I can find plenty of non-story elements to cut to make room for a 46 second intro.

    I'm not kidding, they do pad the show noticeably, as long as you're looking for it from a production standpoint.
