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.

I don't know if you'll think this vid would work or fit with the rest of the vids you already have for the vidshow, but my vid Stars is a Rita POV from the show Dexter and it ticks the naivete and withheld information checkboxes so it might qualify.

I'm not sure if these are exactly what you're looking for, but some ideas:

Love Is An Open Door (also on youtube) by Miracle Falcon. Might only be obvious to people who are somewhat familiar with Revolutionary Girl Utena, but the dude is just. Top tier worst dudes ever. (The song is Anna and the prince who turns out evil in Frozen, so that is a clue.)

Creep by bradcpu. It starts out from Faith and Spike's perspective on Buffy, and then her POV comes in and complicates the whole thing.

Cells by obsessive24. Fight Club vid!

fwiw, as someone who is Invested in RGU, I just watched Love Is An Open Door and I'm glad I wasn't seeing for the first time in a dark and quiet vidshow because there was no stopping my horrified very vocal "NOPE. NOPE. NOOOOOOOPE." response. So like, good rec for vidshow purposes.

IDK if it's quite what you're looking for, but my The Fall vid (the BBC one, not the movie) might work? At least insofar as the character whose POV is represented by the Goyte half of the lyrics is concerned.

/awkward self-rec

My take-or-leave self rec is Jolene? I've been meaning to remaster it & just haven't yet.

SO excited about this vidshow idea. :)

I love that idea. I'd think bop_radar's Gaius Baltar vid Clint Eastwood would be interesting.

I'd definitely suggest "Favourite Friend" by JKL, one of my--uh--favorites. :D If you don't already have it on a previous VVC set, you can get it at . (The site asks for an email to get a password; the password is provided in an autoreply, so it's quick.)

its descripted as "Wicked as told through the wizard of oz (1939)" made to The Buggles "Video killed the radio star" but even with just faint remebering/knowlegde of that works i think. what i specialy like is how this doesn´t go for the dorothy the villian/killer route just because the wicked witch is the main figure in this. its more about her being used as a tool in this bigger then she gets told sibling/lover spat between the witches. i am not sure how well it works for you as its not the typical start first verse with the assumpation get proven wrong - unrelayable narrrtor way - but more broad due to song and framing about the power/dangers of story telling/propaganda.

a classic in twisting/lying narrative - kylee/simone (sex) through the eyes of river who has been used with such violence that her view on it is a bit twisted. great use of outside sources
