vid title: Natalie Has Seen Things
audio: Blade Runner: The Final Cut
video source: Battlestar Galactica
duration: 1:09
summary: My elaboration on Natalie's death.
notes: Made for [ profile] thearchive2's challenge 09 - projection. In reply to [ profile] heyiya's BSG meta and vid playlist, I was reminded of my own personal reading between Battlestar Galactica and Blade Runner. "[Lum's More Human Than Human] is part of what sparked my own obsession with the Cylon. Blade Runner was one of the first movies I remember watching as a child. I was so engaged by the ideas of "robots" as a child. The idea that they could be so similar to humans, but not be considered on the same level blew my young mind. So when I watched Lum's vid that used the White Zombie track that was based on Blade Runner, my love was crystallized." Within that same thread, we discussed the shared consciousness and individualism among the Cylon. I wanted to address many things within a short duration. One being that despite being in a different location, the Hybrid new when Natalie was shot. Rather transparently I wanted to show that without the ability to download, Natalie's memories and experience are lost to the collective. There are other vague references, but this is the most I've ever rambled in the notes of a vid post, so I'm stopping because there has to be room for expansion for the viewer.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-Beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those... moments will be lost... in time... like... tears... in rain. Time... to die.

That was really captivating and moving. I like that you showed blood (is that blood?) when the voice said "tears". You could have easily went with a more literal interpretation but you decided to take us somewhere else. Very inspirational.

Thank you. I immediately wanted to use blood for the tears lyric. It seemed natural for the source.

Aw, lovely. Great idea to portray Natalie's death from the Hybrid's perspective.

Oh...this is really something special. Short, effective and inspiring - left me thinking for a while about the cylons and the their side of the story that we haven't really seen...yet anyway.

Thank you. I'm hoping that The Plan gives us a look at that side.
