OMG so much love. ♥

I love how this style makes each individual frame important - you're drawn to pay attention to each one in a completely different way than we usually 'read' video.

Thanks. I like playing with still images in vids. It's something different.

Icon love.

Screencaps are great to mess around with.

oh, WOW! your mind has to be an amazing place - your vids are just so damn original & inventive all the time, i love it. & this vid!
this stop-motion thing you use here looks completely awesome and shiny & i especially adore the overlays you use - sometimes you show two facial expressions at once... i'm not sure why but i think that looks stunning! it somehow shows all the conflicting emotions & stuff that happens in this relationship.

& of course that brings me to: MARTHA! ♥. eeh, i love that girl - you manage to show a lot about her & how the doctor sees her in this little vidlet...
*squishes vid* THANK YOU for making this :D *squishes you*

ps. ever since you told me about this song i'm in love with it & this artist. okay i only know this one album, but it's so good ;) and it makes the vidlet even more fun to watch...

LOL, my mind is a freaky place.

I think easier to do overlays with the still images because there's less constant motion. I never think it matters if the viewer sees everything and with the screencaps it draws more attention to the changes. Basically, it's cool. JUST LIKE MARTHA.

John Butler Trio makes some cool music. I think there's a due South vid to one of their songs too. The vidder will come to when I'm washing my hair or doing something random.

...this one ( probably.
i didn't even remember that this was jbt until i just read your comment, huh. this just shows that it really depends on what songs i hear to go looking for more from the same artist.

Oh god, this is GREAT. It's the first piece I've ever seen that shows you how alien the Doctor really is, how he sees the world, how he experiences time.

To the human eye, this is both fragmented and obviously a unified whole, the critical Martha moments overlapping and blending seamlessly, but at the same time feeling disparate, scattered, glimpsed for the briefest of seconds. There's something profound here about how memory works, how pieces of it fade, that recalls [ profile] sweetestdrain's "Don't Lose Yourself", but this is unique. I can totally believe the Doctor remembers this way.

What a brilliant technique! I'm in awe.

The companions are a blip to The Doctor. I like using still images and piling layers on and it's something close to how I think The Doctor remembers people and places and times. Like one big memory of Martha that doesn't all move the way it should because his life is so vast that he doesn't remember it all, but he still remembers so much.

I remember "Don't Lose Yourself," I think. The structure was cool and the effects were beautiful.

Yes! I agree 100%. And I love what you say about how he remembers. The vid definitely gets that across.

Amazing use of overlays and juxtaposition to make statements about the characters. So much context and it's saying so much. It's only 1 min, but it has the narrative weight and depth of a 3+min vid. Amazing.

Also, I'm in love with your composition all through. I particularly love how you have faces/expressions positioned to peek through layers. Favorite is 0:33, but that's one of many moments.

*bows to my vid goddess*

Thanks. I don't think it would have worked if it'd been more than a minute long. It would fall apart and become annoying.

Oh, how intriguing! I love the premise of this vid because it prompts me to think more about how the Doctor does see Martha ... and I hope it's how it's portrayed in this vid. :p I'm so in Martha's pov when watching the show I honestly hadn't thought too much about it!

also, your editing here is so unusual in a great way. It may not be actually unusual but it's very different from the way I vid so it feels so to me. For instance I love the use of the fast cuts between still shots at the beginning, and all the uses of layered images. I can't believe how well you control them! My eye totally follows the vid despite how much is going on. It's crazy! I seriously don't know how you do it.

I'd like to think that The Doctor looks at Martha and is awed by her. She's better than him in a lot of ways and she doesn't really need him the way that he needs other people.

I like being unusual. :)

WOW! That was fantastic!!!! The use of stop motion was just BRILLIANT and I love how dynamic it was even though there were only stills in it. I can't even imagine how you did it! But WOW!

And aw, Martha! She needs more love from the fandom. ♥

I loved it, it's just genius!

Thanks! I think I still have the timeline and files intact. I might have to put them up online or something. It wasn't anything super fancy or tricky.

I heart Martha.

This actually made me shiver, because even though it's about Martha, it's as much about the Doctor, and how different he is. How old, time so different to him. Fantastic!

Wow, thanks so much for watching and reccing too. I've always wondered how someone like The Doctor (and Jack now too) sees other people who are blips in their lives.

omg experimental! the images and effects you've created are just stunning. your genius astounds me -- did you really make it from screencaps? LOVE.

Yep, all stills. I'm a bit obsessed with using them at the moment.
