Vidder's notes

"Some of you might have noticed that I've been working on a new Olicity trailer for a couple of days now (advantage of twitter haha) and you surely now that I was pretty excited about it. Anyway I finally finished it. My last Olicity trailer had, and still has a reaaaally but reaaaally big succes and I can not tell how thankful I am for that. Ever since I uploaded my last trailer I was thinking about new one. Making Olicity trailers is much harder than TVD ones. So to come up with storyline took me like 2 months and editing 2 days. If you have any question about the storyline feel free to ask but I think it's quite clear. The jump from the time when he was shipwrecked to the present is 3 years. I did everything what was in my power to make this trailer emotional, interesting and most of all comprehensible. Feel free to thank me that I didn't kill anyone this time haha."
"Btw I really hope you're gonna love this trailer, story just as much as you love 'I'll Remember' ♥ love you guys!"
Program used Sony Vegas Pro 13.

Summary

Manipulated scene where Oliver is holding Felicity's picture.
The vid features various voiceovers and various manipulated dialogue by Oliver Queen, Felicity Smoak, John Diggle, Quentin Lance, Laurel Lance and Tommy Merlyn. There are also various manipulated voiceovers from news reporters from the series, and various appearances by the other Arrow characters including Donna Smoak and Ray Palmer.

A brief overview summary of the vid: Oliver and Felicity were together before he gets stuck on an island for three years. He was thought to be dead before he returned to right the wrongs of the city. Oliver thinks that it would be better for Felicity to move on (suggesting a Felicity/Ray relationship) - that he can't do what he does and be with her. He keeps his role as the vigilante a secret until she and her mother are kidnapped. In order to get her to trust him, Oliver reveals his identity. Felicity struggles with knowing he's alive and is the vigilante.

Ok can I just say WOW!!! This is amazing. I love how you took the clips and gave them a different look as though it were a real trailer. I love how your mind thinks because I really want this to be a real movie.[3]
That was one of the best things I've ever watched. The plot, editing, everything. I want with everything in my being for this to be made into a fanfic. I would sacrifice my soul for someone to write this. [4]
OH. MY. GOD. WOW! This is absolutely incredible, you did such a fantastic job making this. I kid you not, I ended up watching this curled up in fetal position, because I was trying so hard not to freak out from all the feels. This is by far the best Olicity video I have seen![5]
