Vid Recs Request

I'm putting together a vividcon vidshow for Unreliable Narrators and I would love some recs. I have most of the vidshow complete, but I like to widen my net. Any fandom, any source, any audio, and style, anything. Self-recs encouraged as well.

Unreliable Narrators
Vidshow Summary: There's an assumption that the person telling you a story is telling the truth, these vids explore the idea of unreliable narrators. Reasons for their unreliability include naivete, withheld information, mental illness, personal bias, mind altering substances, deliberate misleading of the audience, exaggeration, and whatever the hell was happening in Sucker Punch.

Festivids Recs for 2016

Made For Me
Human (The Keeping Room) - Absolutely beautifully made vid for my favorite movie of 2016. I don't know if the vidder knows me and how much I love audio source usage, but I am damn delighted with it. The song choice has a slow, languid nature that fits so well with the editing and the movie. The vid explores the interesting relationship dynamics while also incorporating the greater dynamics.

Take Me to Church (Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? - 2016) - I want a Take Me to Church cover vid made for me for every femslash couple! And I want a lesbian vampire movie vid every festivids. Excellent inclusion of everything I love about the movie, like the Shakespeare and ALL OF THE HOT LESBIAN SEX IN CEMETARY GOD BLESS LIFETIME FOR GOING HARD AND THIS VIDDER FOR PUTTING IN ALLLLL THE SEX. And it's romantic as fuck. Also, fuck Bob. The end.

Vividcon 2016 Recs Part 2

No Source, No Problem
unfinishedidea's Bloody Shirt (Welcome to Night Vale) - Excellent melding of sources and the clip selection across an endless amount of possibility is fantastic.
MissLane's Meet Me Halfway | SwanQueen | HunnyFresh Fanfic (a Once Upon A Time fanfic) - I love lesbian romance trailers.
Heather Jensen (squidwithelbows)'s In Dreams (The Raven Cycle) - OMG, this is truly amazing and creative and beautiful. It's an amazing animated art.
harrypfanmcc's Deshi Basara (Red Rising) - Very cool. Love the coloring and way it looks like one cohesive source.
CarolynOnUTube's Grisha Trilogy || DarklingxAlina (The Grisha Trilogy) - Beautiful choices of source to create such a rich and lush world within a short time frame.
hydrazoite's L I T T L E. T I T A N. CA F É. [Eren/Levi] (an Attack on Titan fic) - Cool titles and use of text. So sweet.
dayln's A Brief History of Montmaray (The Montmaray Journals) - Gorgeous landscapes and excellent fancastings.
fakescottishaccent's the marauders │ darkness (Harry Potter) - Great audio editing as well as video editing. I adore these fancastings. I believe every single second of this.
thatfangirl's When Brakes Get Wet (Code Name Verity) - Lovely and amazing.
Rinoa's Cinder: The Lunar Chronicles || The Future Will Destroy You (FAN-BOOK TRAILER) (The Lunar Chronicles) - Cool as fuck.
bironic's "Ancillary Justice" book trailer (Imperial Radch trilogy) - So awesome.

Keys to the Kingdom
Cherry's Unsteady Ground (Merlin) - Brilliant song choice and I love this editing and this vid still gets me years later.
stardust rain's after the day's work is done (Marvel Cinematic Universe) - Exceedingly nice to see rarely used clips like this and I really like the editing and focus on Nick in clips that I've seen in other vids in different contexts.
sweetestdrain's Empty Nest (Kings) - So good with epic structure. Makes me want to rewatch the show.

Better Living Through Dystopia
obsessive24's Candyman (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) - Still one of the cutest vids I've ever seen. So adorable. jk, I wanna get really high and watch this on repeat for an hour.
jarrow's Wretches and Kings (Battlestar: Galactica) - Very well conceived and construted. It's hard hitting and doesn't pull any visual or narrative punches. I love the harsh edges of the vid from the music and the editing. The on beat editing is a thrill with the sound matching reverses.

Express Yourself
GhostTownExit's Rock 'n' Roll (Henry & June) - I love everything about this vid.
chaila's Manchester (Bunheads) - So sweet and quiet and bittersweet too.

Vividcon 2016 Recs Part 1

Welcome to Vividcon
Killa's These Two Arms (Xena: The Warrior Princess) - There's a special place in my heart for fix-it vids and this is an excellent example of what vids can do. The relationship is so beautifully considered and their dynamic is displayed so well. It's making me want to go back and watch the series again. I'd watched this vid at home for a project, but seeing it on a large screen with an audience was amazing. The pacing and dissolves kill me.
here's luck's New Frontier (Firefly: Serenity) - I remember watching this vid ten years ago and I still dig it. Still love that "volunteer" moment that sets up Mal so quickly and that gun raise on "hey."

Auction
ghost lingering's Children of the Revolution (Persepolis) - I think this captures the fierce heart of the movie and the character.
elipie's Spirits (Gotham) - I'm going to have to start watching this dumpster fire again because it looks like it's embraced it's wackiness more in a fun way. I like how the vid teeters on the edge. It takes what the show is silly and campy about and looks at it more seriously.
Franzeska's Byzantium (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) - I had a blast watching this. Great song and great visual parallel use with witty lyrical interpretations.

Wish You Were Here
Llin's Touch the Sky (multifandom) - This fills my heart with joy.
AurumCalendula's Ain't No Grave (redux) (Person of Interest) - Excellent character study of Shaw with a song choice I was really sold on with the great lyrical interpretations, like "promised land" and good use of visual parallels, like panning over from Shaw shooting someone.
frayadjacent's Freedom (Underground) - Fuck. Yes. Beautiful set up of the characters and I really love how the quieter bits within the song were edited too. Excellent vid for an amazing show.
kaydeefalls's Wildest Dreams (multifandom) - Wow, amazing concept and really expertly put together. The establishing sources are used well and others are brought in at just the right point in the vid.
sanguinity's Something Good (Will Come From That) (all the Sherlock Holmes adaptations) - Sweet vid with neat visual connections that makes it's own adaptation.
eruthros and thingswithwings's Dance Apocalyptic (multifandom) - Sheer joy and love for this vid, especially the fantastic range and detailed bits pulled from so many sources.
