Glitterguts! (Desensitisation encomium)
[livejournal.com profile] absolutedestiny's I Fink U Freeky (90s Japanese erotic cyberpunk body-horror movies including 946 Pinocchio (1991), Rubber's Lover (1996) and Tetsuo: The Iron man (1989)) - I really enjoyed this. The movements within the frame along with the sounds in the music and the arrangements of images are fantastic.

[livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey's A Quite Serious Thematic Analysis of the Works of David Cronenberg (The films of David Cronenberg) - I love how director study vids bring out all sorts of terrifying parallels in the sources. They're utterly captivating visuals and they're made even more so apparent when placed together and intercut by the editing.

Brand New Classic Hits
[livejournal.com profile] cupidsbow's We Must Be Killers (The Defiant Ones) - I connected emotionally to the characters far more than I thought and more than I usually connect to unknown source in a vid.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's The Amazing Sounds of Orgy (Replusion) - This is what going mad feels like.

Kitovraska's Loneliness (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty) - Wow, love the additional line and text in this. It's constructed well, without feeling like it went for cheap moments to create the romance between Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.

A Matter of Perspective
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Blinding (Merlin) - DAYUM. I love the building pressure. Having heard the song tons of times before, I knew what was coming musically and I couldn't wait to see what the vidder did it with. OBVI, I was not disappointed. Excellent epic emotional zoom SKILLZ, breathing, and the happy little orange bit made my heart hurt.

[livejournal.com profile] heresluck's How I Got Over (The Wire) - Expertly accomplished study of Michael, Namond, Randy, Dukie, and those around them. I still get emotional about how well the vid follows their stories down their respective rabbit holes.

[livejournal.com profile] keely's Sugar (Smallville) - Still amazed at how this vid was able to construct Lana Lang as an actual character that doesn't depend on who she's with and not just a plot device.

Video Game Vids
[livejournal.com profile] milly's Riverside (Tomb Raider 2013) - Putting aside the issues I have with the game itself, this is a deeply emotionally sound and mapped out vid.

Zup's Dopest Dope You've Ever Seen! (Battlefield 3, Blacklight Retribution, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2, Crysis 2, Crysis 3, Medal Of Honor) - The title really does say it all.

UFец's Paper Planes (Borderlands 2) - I love that it doesn't take itself seriously, even though it could have gone that direction. There's humor throughout.

Hamps's Warrior Concerto (Assassin's Creed) - This has always been one of my favorite videogame vids because it ties so many things together, while staying visually fresh to death.

gef's de:part (Alan Wake) - The atmosphere is created beautifully with the aide of the visual and music choices. The editing falls into sync with the music without being too predictable.

evi's evo (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) - I envy the way it moves and navigates through the source.

Also Premiering (Non-attending premieres)
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Devil Wouldn't Recognize You (Elementary) - Very cool use of the coloring and added effects clips overtop. I especially love how Sherlock ripping down just his portraits seems more important than in the source when it's paired with the other uses of art in the vid. Love the choppy, yet obviously purposeful editing.

So many vids! It's like a fannish holiday.

Also, you have good taste. There are some great action vids in this list, and I've been having a real yen for that lately.

How great are the Russian vidders at action? I'm in awe.

It's VVC vidding season. We hoard them like squirrels in our cheeks until August.

The videogame vidshow was excellent. I tend to only watch the top rated vids on creaspace.ru so some of them I've seen and some of them were new to me. I wish I had the talent to vid like that.

You Northerners. We hoard them in our pouches down here. :)

I wish I had the talent to vid like that.

Yeah, me too. My current all-time favourite vid is by a Russian vidder. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ll9RKzxgOj0

Blows me away every time I watch.

Ohhh, I haven't watched that one before. Wicked cool pacing and I can't put my finger on it, but the editing to the music is great too.

Yeah, it really is. There's a snapshot of part of the vid project timeline on his/her facebook. It's amazeballs. The layering! There's actually a sequel vid too. A sequel! (There are not enough exclamation marks to express my delight! :)

I didn't like the sequel quite as much the first time I watched it, because it has a completely different pace and feel. I liked it more on re-watching for exactly those reasons; the scope of the whole project is amazing.

One of the things I find interesting is that the patterns of the movie sequel seems to hold true for a remix like this -- the sequel is judged against the first vid. It's made me think about remix storytelling in a new way (yet again, remix is great for that).

I'm loving this convo, but it's 3am, so I'm going to bed. My eyes are on stalks. Talk to you later.

Mmm, I love layers on a vid timeline. Do you have a link handy whenever? I love looking at what other people's timelines and vidding notes look like.

LOL, night!

Here's the timeline: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=484282048289996&set=a.484279374956930.123404.473895025995365&type=1&theater

The comments are interesting too, as he says this was just the cap from the first day, before he'd even started After Effect. I'd believe it too.

I almost could have posted the a link to the whole vidshow as a rec, lol. I love the streaming. I paused it between every vid. I could never sit through a whole vidshow, omg. How do people do it and still sit through Premieres and then Challenges the next day?
