Avatar Vision Presents: LARA MEANS IS PARANOID!

Yup, it's MusicMonday once more and it's the MusicMonday I have been waiting for for an age. It's Lara Means time and there's no need tell you how much that character means to me. Josef has come up trumps again, so much so that this little gem has been on constant repeat on my iPod in a style very reminiscent of Lucy Butler's music playing habits. So without further ado it's time to grab the popcorn and soda and run for the back row. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Lara Means!

As always, we thank our resident video alchemist Josef for taking this campaign and continuing to plug it in the vast abyss that is Youtube and we hope you will feel in some way inspired to follow in his footsteps and donate a little video magic of your own.

Don't forget to leave a comment or two for Josef, he really appreciates all the feedback he receives for his sterling work and keep your eyes peeled (ouch) for next weeks video it will certainly please one particular individual I can think of!

As promised, each music new release from Josef will be accompanied by a postcard that we urge you to send to Steve Asbell at 20th Century Fox (apologies for any confusion regarding addresses but news from our sources indicates Steve is indeed the man to target.) Fox have begun to take notice, your hard work during Lucy Butler Week is paying dividends. Do not give up, send this postcard today.

That is hands down the best video you have done mister and what a perfect choice of music. I've been a fan of Garbage and Kristen for a number of years so that was just the perfect combination.

Can I say the postcards just get better and better. I still have three to send that I finished yesterday but I will definitely send the new one.

You guys ROCK♥

Mark and FoxyWonder.

It was a pleasure making this video, and the next one as well. I consider them among the best I've made so far...although the Pilot video is still close to my heart.

Now, Mark, correct me of I'm wrong, but wasn't Lara Means drinking tea in those scenes? I'm pretty sure of it.

If I'm nitpicking too much, you can always tell me to shut up :D

The next one is gonna be great as well, very tight and edited to the beat of a song. Focusing on a B story in one episode from season 3. That's all I'm gonna give you, folks.


Cheers from Iceland!

Absolutely brilliant video Josef, I keep saying this like a broken record but pandering to my Lara-love is a good way of earning praise!

You're quite right, Lara is indeed drinking tea of some sort. You can clearly see the t-bag string dangling from the cup. Have I suggested otherwise old chap?

Fantastic video, just fantastic. One of your best Josef (if not thee best) - come the end of this you will have a career in post-production no doubt.

Lara was indeed a great character, a real loss to season three that she wasn't in it but, never mind, at least we still have fans keeping her memory alive.
Good going dude!!!!

Another superb video Josef. I really admire all the hard work you must put in to making them as well as supporting the campaign. Just wish I could give you a hand but I'm not good at things like this. I guess sending those postcards will have to suffice as far as my contribution goes.
Poor old Lara - what a way to go eh?

Mark, it does look like it's coffee in your poster.

And I'm NO expert on coffee and tea, I don't touch the stuff.

Well, I had my fortune read in a coffee cup recently, and how can anyone drink this stuff, gah!

Pepsi Max is my substitute.

I guess it does Josef. I try to limit the amount of colours I use to about three as I'm trying to pay homage (steal the ideas of lol) Saul Bass who's work I like.

I guess I could have made a little dangly thing to represent the t-bag.

And, believe it or not, I don't drink tea but drinks loads of decaf coffee - how very un-British of me.

Let's just call it artistic license.
And leave it at that ;)

And since when did people go nuts after drinking tea? Coffee makes much more sense, I would think ;)

No news could have overshadowed this excellent video.
I believe Lara was drinking tea.
Lara's mind was so unstable that she couldn't handle whatever it was the Millennium Group showed her when she was inducted. I wonder how many other inductees ended up going insane?

I've heard it said that Lara was meant to be Franks "Scully". I never would have thought that was true. I think Lara completed Frank in a way that Catherine could not and at times Catherine may have showed jealousy because she did not have that connection with Frank.

Having said that...Kristen Kloke played going insane quite well. This video brings together the best and the worst of Lara. Wonderful job... and thanks for the teaser.

That teaser you gave last week in the comments...
I figured it out...

This Is Who We Are!!

Oh I loved this one.. Lara is awesome. I just adored her character. Huge Lara fan!! As I know Mark is too. Loved her and loved season 2. What a great video and so very cool, loved the postcard too. :)

One of my favourites this music video. Lara Means was one of my favourite characters, and it's a crying shame we never got to see her again after the episode "The Time is Now". I'd be very interested to see where her character is now in the Millennium universe.
