kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytal)
It only took 12 hours, but I've watched ALL THE FESTIVIDS.

RECS:
Postpone The Bad (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) - Wow, I love the way they used the screens and clips of mundane things. The moment at :30 is freaking perfect and I love it.
Who Are You, Defenders of the Universe (The Americans) - I love the editing style and clip choices, how the similarities are pulled together and pulled apart. I want to be in a fake marriage that grows into something real with this vid.
Paper Planes (Bandidas) - Without having seen the movie, I think it's a super cute bank robbers BFF movie because this vid is a super cute band robbers BFF movie and I love it. I'm totes watching this movie.
All Be Yours (Big) - So fun and so sad at the same time. I'm never going to grow up.
I Am The Rain (Brave) - I absolutely adore this little vid. It captures the spirit of the movie amazingly well.
Black Flowers (Call the Midwife) - I wasn't expecting to become so invested in the vid because I've not watched the source. But this vid so very well edited and doesn't hold back any emotional punches.
Battle Without Honor or Humanity (Danger 5) - A parody of a parody. Kill Hitler.
Get Close (Deep Blue Sea) - MINE MINE MINE SHARK SHARK SHARKSSSSSS! Awesome music choice. And I love the transitions too!
Ah Ha (Deep Blue Sea) - Excellent use of action and shocking moments with the music. SHARKSSSS!
Gasoline (Live Free of Die Hard) - I love it. I can't read this as anything other than Matt Farrell/John McClane. The flirting was strong with those two. I need to see if there's any new fics on AO3. IT'S A FIRE!!!!! sale.
Applause (Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23) - I didn't know how much I wanted to see this vid until I watched it because it's really the perfect song for James van der Beek and Chloe.
Who Are You, Really? (Dredd) - Excellent pacing and clip choice. It really melds nicely with the music.
Get Me Bodied (The Fifth Element) - This is epic and fantastic!
All We Got (The Great Gatsby) - Fabulous editing and heartbreak and pacing.
221B And A Half (The Great Mouse Detective) - I really like the use of narration.
Love, Save the Empty (Masters of Sex) - An interesting look at the relationship between Lillian and Virginia that put a doopey grin on my face.
L.O.V.E (Much Ado About Nothing) - So adorable and cute that I went into a coma.
World Spins Madly On (New Amsterdam) - Interesting manipulation of time for a show that was cancelled in the middle of the story.
Further On (Northern Exposure) - I'd forgotten how much I loved this show. I remember so much of it, but then I watched the vid and realized I'd forgotten so much.
#timeangels (NTSF:SD:SUV::) - Cool fake trailer.
Keep Your Picture Clear (Pacific Rim) - Very cool lyrics matches. The vid has a stuttery cool vibe that I dig.
Final Round (Pariah) - Tension filled beginning and a beautifully created climax. I need to rewatch this movie.
Diva Swing (RPF - A.J. Lee (WWE)) - Excellent editing and a really interesting "behind the scenes" origin style ending.
What I Like About You (RPF - Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis) - OMG, this is hilarious fun.
Gorgeous (RPF - Hugh Jackman) - I'm seriously intrigued by this vid because I haven't seen 95% of where the clips came from. It's insane and Hugh Jackman LOVES to dance.
(You Drive Me) Crazy (Sharknado) - My life is complete.
Moonlight (Sleepy Hollow) - I love the atmosphere created with the clips and the music.
The Way Things Are (Sleepy Hollow) - Wow, great song choice that leads from a harsh opening into something more painful and emotional. JENNY!
The Ballad of Wesley Crusher (Star Trek - Next Generation) - Whoa, unexpected sadness on my face. The passage of time was beautifully shown.
Paradise Circus (Stoker) - It's a good thing I didn't finish my own because it would have been like this, but less amazing. The parallels and musicality are brilliant.
Young and Beautiful (The Tudors) - Wow, I didn't realize the thread that was being pulled until it shifted from Catherine and I freaking fell in love with the concept.
No Church in the Wild (The Tudors) - DAYUM, the imagery and connections and lyrics matches and everything is so freaking perfect.
Freedom at 21 (The White Queen) - EVERYTHING IS MAGGIE B. OMFG, this is everything I wanted in a Red Queen vid but didn't ask for. The imagery and editing is fantastic. The switch over to the White Queen is amazing. I can't believe how serious and beautiful this is. OMFG.
Dutch (The Wire) - Mmmmm, such good music choice. Love the use of hands and the lyrics. The throughline of money and power is brilliant. The editing is amazing and I love it all.
Song 9 (Wonderfalls) - Great use of the animals and I like the back and forth editing.

Challenge Amenesty
[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu's Thrift Shop (remakes) - LOLZ, entertaining concept and great musical combination. A cinematic thrill of a vid. The "I wear your granddad's clothes" section was especially satisfying.

ghost_lingering's Shephards (Firefly & Pulp Fiction) - Again, a spoken word vid was my favorite of a vidshow. I love everything about what this vid chooses to be. The way the three back stories are essentially the same was something that I needed to see in vid form. Book, Jubal Early, and the Operative were the same piece in the game at different levels of the game so to speak, parallel to Jules in Pulp Fiction. I still remember realizing that intentional vid connection during the Challenge discussion and I felt like a genius, lol.

[livejournal.com profile] anoel's We Don't Care (The Wire) - I'll never get tired of vids about the kids' season on The Wire.

[livejournal.com profile] milly's Mineshaft (Game of Thrones) - Ros, how I love thee and how her story was woven in this vid. Dessa, how I love thee too.

[livejournal.com profile] sisabet and [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's The Sellout (multifandom) - Troublesome, yet ultimately satisfying storylines, which probably says something about me as a viewer.

[livejournal.com profile] absolutedestiny's Age Like Wine (vidder's catalog) - Those programs look hella impressive and daunting. I love introspective and self referential things like this.
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytal)
[livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey's Vividcon 2013 Premieres Intro vid (Multi) - SO CUTE.

[livejournal.com profile] bananainpyjamas's I'm No Superman (Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes) - I love the balance of humor and sincerity that this vid strikes. The musicality hits the perfect chord of adorableness with the movements and narrative structure.

kass' In the Hole (Ripper Street) - Well, I started watching Ripper Street (Old Timey CSI) when I started this recs post and I've already finished it before posting this. I was drawn in by the vid's sound matching with the video, like the kid throwing the rock, then the sound of glass breaking.

[livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey's Slippery Slope (The Wickerman) - Fuck me sideways. I can't really explain my love for this vid because it's so wrapped in a strange feeling of despair and dread. The use of the movie is so well done, like the slight movements within the clips. The most well known images are edited perfectly in the vid too. The reveal, MY GOD, that man's stupidity... Yes, I know people see the movie differently, but I see that man as stupid in his morality.

[livejournal.com profile] anoel's Past the Feeling (Once Upon a Time) - The FEELS of my heart. I don't need to watch Once Upon a Time, I just need to watch anoel's vids. The imagery is gorgeously used and the music is seamlessly woven with them. Regina's story and how her tendrils reach out into the other characters and family. The vid is almost 5 minutes long, but I wanted it to keep going and I didn't want Regina's story to end. I'm bias because I will never be over Swan Queen. I love the segmented nature of the vid and I feel like that's the only way a Regina vid could work. She's a very compartmentalized character and she's written in such bizarre ways. I'm amazed at how the vid draws things together in such a way that it makes a beautiful fairytale... At one point I remember thinking over and over "SOMEONE GIVE REGINA A HUG."

[livejournal.com profile] shati's Hope on Fire (Queen Seondeok) - I've watched and heard about Queen Seondeok from [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria so much that I feel like I've watched the show. I feel like every Queen Seondeok vid has great clip choice because of the sheer amount of source that it has, yet none of the vids I watch seem stale or repetitious. Your use of the camera motion is lovely and the balance of close up shots with larger scale scenes.

[livejournal.com profile] astolat's When I Ruled the World (Person of Interest) - I liked the narrative structure and the use of lyrics in relation to the characters and story lines. The use and creation of the machine sections was especially lovely.

[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Graceless (Spartacus) - There were two vids made with the same concept and source. I love them both differently, but for the same reasons. The progression of the narrative was beautiful and compelling. I love the tender, yet fierce love that comes through in the editing. There's an obvious beginning, middle, and end, which was so brilliantly satisfying while still breaking my heart.

echan's Omega (Fight Club) - CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH I WANT TO HAVE HATE SEX WITH THIS VID, PLEASE? Like, I would let it do the most unfathomable things to me. The use of, not only the audio, but the SOUNDS. It's music to my eyeballs. I have such a thing for the use of spoken word in vidding.

[livejournal.com profile] butterfly's Firework (Supernatural) - I watched a different vid than most of the people I talked to after Premieres. I saw it as Charlie being fabulous and amazing and Dean loving her like a sister (because she's not a love interest threat because she's identified as queer). Through Dean loving Charlie, he accepts his own queerness and love of Cas. Dean embraces his own self by hugging those close to him, showing his emotions, and "rejects" his previous hetero-normative characterization. I said that and everyone on my side of the hotel room looked at me like I'd grown three heads. This is how I choose to perceive this vid and it's beautiful, even if it's not the vidder's intention.

[livejournal.com profile] lolachrome's We're All Missing Mama (Peter Pan) - I had a doofy grin on my face during this vid and I know it, even the when it was sad.

[livejournal.com profile] killabeez's Dyin' Day (The Hunger Games) - The desolation, my god, the desolation.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Run Boy Run (Game of Thrones) - One of my favorites that I can't textually render my thoughts without cracking my head open like an e.e. cummings poem. The clips are all so important and all the character's fates are so similar. For me it was all love of the narrative, editing, song use, and the characters coming through without getting lost in it all.

[livejournal.com profile] joyo and [livejournal.com profile] absolutedestiny's Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want (Infomercials) - I love this on a fannish level, of course, but also in a personal "real life" way, which added to my enjoyment. A group of friends and I play a game where if one of us yells out "person in an infomercial" that person has to finish whatever their doing in an epically and overly dramatic fashion. I've ruin so many things playing this horrible game.

[livejournal.com profile] findthesea's No Direction Home (Lost) - I never knew I wanted to see a Sawyer character study until I saw this vid. Having just did a rewatch of Lost (the chronological edit), I had an instant connection to it because the source was still on my mind and in my conversations. It's a rich vid with an interesting structure that I dug. First time vidders that make such great vids make me so jealous.

[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu and [livejournal.com profile] milly's The Polka Slayer (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - There's wild and wide humor. It ranges and whips around, which makes it a great ride. I thought it was going to get sad for a moment, but then the funny came back and that's my favorite part.
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (awkward flamingo)
VividCon Premieres 2012 Intro Vid (multi) - EPIC AS HALE. -[livejournal.com profile] greensilver

Fields of Coal (The Unusuals) - I have such a deep love of the show that I was worried the vid would just be someone who watched for Jeremy Renner. I cannot express how happy I was with this vid. I had a doofy smile on my face the entire time, even at the sad bits, because I was just so happy that it existed. -[livejournal.com profile] barkley

The Adventure (Harry Potter) - Who doesn't love Neville? If I had feelings, I'd probably have gotten misty. I thought it was interesting during In Depth when it was said that most of fandom is coming from the "same place" as Neville. I don't know how true it is, but I do know that Harry Potter, the character, was like boring sand paper to me, so anything that makes someone else's journey the focus it fantastic. -[livejournal.com profile] greensilver

Forever Yours (House) - The enthusiasm and love in this vid is unparalleled. It took 8 years and it needed to be made and it needed to loved by me. For a brief moment I forgot that Wilson was totally dying. -[livejournal.com profile] anoel

Let Me Put My Love in You (Bitchslap) - This movie owned me, so I was sold before the vid even started. The added bonus was that the vid is so amazing and I didn't want to blink for fear of missing a second. It has the witty tongue-in-cheek winking thing going for it because it never takes itself too seriously and when it does, there's a hilarious edit to bring it back to camp. -[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain

Lateralus (Fringe) - I love how this stood out among the other vids because of how it handled the opening. It's all about consequences for actions. I'm continually torn over Walter's character because he's so many things and there's so many different ways to feel about his character. This pulls a lot of those feelings into one coherent vid. The cause and effect throughout the vid is killer. -[livejournal.com profile] rhoboat

White Rabbit (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) - Trippy as hell and I loved it. -[livejournal.com profile] shati

Masters of War (The Pegasus Rising Remix) (Stargate: Atlantis)- A lot of people in SGA fandom have been waiting years for a vid like this. Much like Lateralus from above, it's all about consequences. SGA tended to be a show of squee, but it always something dark with a mask painted over it for me. -[livejournal.com profile] bironic

Possession (Legend of the Seeker) - So beautiful. -[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu

The Lightning Strike (multi) - When the vid first started my thought was, "ohhh, Nicky would hate this. It's a bunch of white dudes clowning around making war." Then after a moment I recognized the editing and realized it was her vid. Oops, that will teach me to not look at the program beforehand. This is absolutely the ultimate epic slash vid throughout history and beyond. -[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Outer Space (Stargate Ark of Truth)- The movements are flowing and beautiful with the fading and the feel of the music.
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Under My Skin (Heroes)- LOL, I have no clue what is actually going on, but it looks like a hilarious romp, like a mind control Weekend at Bernie's. OMGINSANITY!
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Hot Mess (Heroes)- That's hot.
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's If You Stayed Over (Sleeper Cell)- My heart is broken after watching. It looks so beautiful with all the tragedy and sadness, then those brief moments of hope that are dashed to pieces.
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Suddenly I See (Castle)- Sweet and adorable with a lovely concept.

[livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Lucky (Rubicon)- Very interesting editing. The vid really made me miss the show. I can't believe it was cancelled. It was so flipping good, I don't understand it. The music choice was excellent, like a lovely kind of weirdness with the jumpcutting structure.
[livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Pokerface (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles)- Hell yeah, love the editing and style choices with the interesting religion themes, the use of hands, the turning, and how the men twirl around her until she twists them up.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl amd [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna's Seven (David Lynch Films)- The narrative of the vid very much echoes the construct of a Lynch film. The editing is meticulously calculated and pay mind to recurring compositions and logics. I love how she played with the fractured identities to the point of them all, mainly female characters, being one solid character because they are all from Lynch's mind. They split and crack and form one monster. The vid begins as a typical vid might with set up and an evolving narrative, then it tumbles down the rabbit hole into a wonderland of audiovisual nightmarish delight. I've watched many of his recent documentaries and there is something of the man himself captured in the vid. It's a nearly unexplainable quality that the vid has manipulated his life's work to create a deconstruction draped over a man.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Deeper and Deeper (Legend of the Seeker)- I have a thing for violent sex fights, therefore, I love this vid.
[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Vertigo (Twin Peaks)- I need to take a shower after that horrid and disturbing vid. I loved it. The dancing and kissing and twirling and the hits and the back and forth between Leland and BOB.
[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Boom Boom Pow (Fringe)- MY FAVORITE PART WAS EVERYTHING
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (alice in wonderland)
VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] balistik94's Easy Money (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels; Revolver; RocknRolla; Snatch) - These are some of my favorite movies and they are blend nicely with great clip choice in this vid. I love how commonalities in the movies are drawn out.

[livejournal.com profile] beccatoria's Howl (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - Very cool overlays and I love the editing style of fits and starts. It's a fantistic look at Jesse in relation to Derek, Riley, and her mission.

[livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Suicide Future (Rewind) (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - Derek is an intensely interesting character and I love the music. The use of light and clips have great interactions with each other. I like how the visual similiarities are drawn out without dwelling on them.
[livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Suicide Future (Fast Forward) (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - Great tension creation and exploration of John's character. I saw blown back by some of the lyrical interpretations. Powerful stuff, like "instead of killin', I spare the raccoon / And start fillin' sand bags as I stare at the moon," "we let the thoughts flood, we remind ourselves it's all right, it's all good / It's all love, it's not though," "a pot hole I'm sinkin' in, sharing a drink with my father."

[livejournal.com profile] charmax's Mr. Blue Sky (Wall-E) - This vid fills me with unabashed glee and happiness. I love it to pieces and think it's practically perfect in every way.

[livejournal.com profile] cherryice's Gasoline and Matches (Bones) - I love how cute and fun this is. The clip selection and organization is awesome with so many great uses.

[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Wicked Game (Battlestar Galactica) - It still hurts a bit, this vid is that good. I love the devastation of the world and the character of Dee. There's not much I can say that probably hasn't been said already about how amazing this vid is in all it's depressing glory.
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's I want to destroy something beautiful (Misfits) - It's a vid about a rapey-eyed tit-pissing cookie-munching corpse-watcher that can't tell the difference between romance and violence. What's not to love?
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's The Scream (Torchwood) - I could almost say that I'm sick of Nicky being so darn awesome and amazing at making vids, but I love them so much. This one is a freaky little exploration of Children of Earth with eyeball murderingly awesomeness.

[livejournal.com profile] thuviaparth's Etheric Messages (Fringe) - Wow, I am enthralled with this vid and all it's brillance. The feeling, clip choice, editing, colors, motion, and everything are amazing. It's part of the reason I started watching Fringe.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Needs (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Hero; House of Flying Daggers; Memoirs of a Geisha) - This is a fantastic vid that I want to live in. The colors are lush and blend together to the point of it being difficult to pick out the different movies. The motion is breathtaking and the whole vid is EPIC AS HELL. The clip connections and interactions are startling in their perfection.
[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Never Be (Criminal Minds) - It's disturbing and haunting, which I gather was the intent because the vid is extremely well focused. I don't watch the show, but I was right there with the vid without a second thought because I was immediately locked in by the emotion and editing. There are so creepy moments that sent chills up my spine and made me want to take a shower, but in a good way that let's me know how awesome the vid is.
[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's The Survivor (Band of Brothers) - The editing is quiet, yet effective. The pacing is great and the instrumental lends itself well to the vid. It's a sleek and well created.

[livejournal.com profile] nightchik and I complied the Understanding Meta Vids (I C WHUT U DID THAR) vidshow (she ran the panel at VVC) for 2009 [livejournal.com profile] vividcon.

Vids that exist on a meta level, working in more ways than one, often suggesting a basis beyond the individual fandoms of the source andmore about a larger concept and/or fandom itself. Vids that go beyond the narrative of their source, commenting on the nature of that narrative, connecting with outside meanings, or placing the story in alarger culture context.


Everytime I thought we had a good description I'd realize it was excluding some type of meta or possibility for meta. I had no idea how tediously difficult it would be a write a definition for what meta vids are. We went for a wide range of meta topics, so I hope people didn't look at it and reject the vidshow in the basis that it's not what they consider to be meta. Meta has a wide variety of possibilities and these vids are some of them:

On to the playlist! )

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? While this was the playlist for meta vids used in the vidshow, I encourage others to drop links in the comments to other meta vids. Feel free to spark discussions as well. I'm sure they'll be notes coming from the meta panel and I'd love for online discussion as well.

Ok, I've watched this video about ten times in the last two days. I have no idea exactly what makes it and Sara Schaefer so great, but I've watch it so many times that I need to pass it off to my flist: [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBzOfUTGTts]


VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] butterfly's Jacob Marley's Chain (Merlin) - A haunting Uther vid with simmer and barely contained emotions in the languid editing.

[livejournal.com profile] charmax's Smile (Buffy and Angel) - BEWBS ARE KEWL in this cute and fun vid.

[livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c's Supernatural (In My Pants) (Supernatural) - You haven't lived until you've laughed with this vid.

[livejournal.com profile] millylicious's Pandora's Box (Heroes) - She is a sick genius and I loves it. The vid is so creepy and amazing that I want to have it's scary Elle and Sylar babies.
[livejournal.com profile] millylicious's Soldier (Merlin) - Quiet sadness soaks this Hunith vid right along the sheer joy and beauty.

[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Love Lockdown (Battlestar Galactica) - An amazing destruction and construction of Gina/Cain that uses repeated imagery to give a more full representation with limited source.

COMIC/COLLAGE:
[livejournal.com profile] dogeared and [livejournal.com profile] aesc's Escape Velocity (Stargate: Atlantis) - This blew my mind with creativity and innovation. It's set before 5x16 with the Vegas!verse that pays such mind to composition and interaction between text and image that I could stare it at.
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (Default)
Today I hit snooze for 4 hours. That is a new record for me. I'm glad that for the first time in months, I had nowhere important to be today.

Everyone should go enjoy [livejournal.com profile] heyiya's Battlestar Galactica flavored meta, Why I heart the Cylons: integrated meta, vid recs and notes on Sons and Daughters.

VID RECS:
Remember when I said that BSG was producing some of the greatest vids ever? Yep, it's still happening. [livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Cathedrals (Battlestar Galactica) - There have been many character studies of the woman of BSG, this one focuses on Three, Laura, and Caprica. There's an innocence to the editing that gives way to lovely lyric interpretations, clip choice, and an instinctual editing style. It's lush and languid in a way that allows the viewer to organically connect with the characters through their search.

[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Lágrimas (Supernatural) - The musicality is beautifully rendered with glitching and static noise. The whole piece is moody and sweetly creepy. It's a quiet story with well chosen scenes and shots from limited source.

A few friends and I went out the other night not realizing that the holiday would effect bars. It was so empty and boring for the first half hour because there were 10 people in the whole place that I played I Spy with a guy down the bar. The owner felt bad, so he gave out free drinks and if it was boring after that, I didn't care or notice.

I made cupcakes today, which is a major thing for me. The first time I decided to make cupcakes I stood in the baking isle of the grocery store looking for cupcake mix for ten minutes. I ended up asking a stock boy where it was. Needless to say, he looked at me like I was made out of stupidity and said cupcakes are made from cake mix. So I've come a long way from that to making cupcake so good you'll suck dick.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] balistik94's Awakening (The Maxtrix Trilogy) - I love the sense of beat and editing. There's a strong stylization to the effects and use of them.
[livejournal.com profile] balistik94's Exterminating Son (Blade Trilogy) - I'm a little bit in viddinglove with [livejournal.com profile] balistik94. There's an amazing ability to get a feel for the music and the source with the pacing, editing, and just plain coolness inherent in the vid. It has some very cool musical edits.

[livejournal.com profile] humansrsuperior's end. (Doctor Who) - Interesting concept that ties everything together and it fits perfectly. The effects are soft and organic. A whole mood is created with the music, clip choice, visuals, and audio work.

[livejournal.com profile] jagwriter78 and [livejournal.com profile] rhoboat's Anything the Doctor Can Do... (Doctor Who) - EHehehhe, I still have a huge doofy smile on my face from watching this vid.

[livejournal.com profile] ladymajavader's Powrót (The Return) (Multi) - I think everyone will see something a little different when they watch this vid, but it will be beautiful.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Promises, Promises (Torchwood and Doctor Who) - Excellent jumpcuts that really create a taped together atmosphere. It's like the pieces of Ianto put back together with some of them covered by Jack.

[livejournal.com profile] thedothatgirl's Venus in Furs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - A disturbingly hot vid with great song choice, concept, music matching, structure, and black and white.

Mondays are now my favorite day of the week. I get up super early (or just stay up all night) to go to McDonald's with my grandparents. There's a group of people from their church that meet at 6am for 2 hours to have coffee and talk. There's usually a dozen senior citizens (I call them cool old people in my head, but that might be offensive...) and every once in a while a younger person comes along. I totally love going. Everyone is so happy sweet. It's pretty much just the people I miss from when I went to church. For me, it's as close as I'll get to going back to church. I take my sketchbook, talk, listen, and drink a hugemongous caramel iced coffee.

The funniest part is how my grandfather goes to the register before we leave to pay. He's the only person I have ever heard of that can run a tab at McDonald's. It blows my mind how he's such a baller that he can get coffee for me, himself, and my gramma; 2 cherry pies for us to split; and an occasional cinnamon roll for my gramma and not pay until later. They were training a new clerk this morning, so when he listed off everything, she turned around to collect the items, but the other clerk explained that he already had his order and he was paying for it before he left. The girl was as amazed as I was the first time I went.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] croc_rocketfan's The Bells (Doctor Who) - A beautiful opening and bringing the Doctor fully in with the rising of the music. Great pacing and clip choice, as well as interesting parallels and overall progression. It never stops being awesome.

[livejournal.com profile] tallulah71's Hera has Six Mommies (Battlestar Galactica) - A beautiful interpretive dance-like vid about how the 6 women come together to form Hera. Just as Hera is the shape of things to come, I think this vid is the shape of things to come as well. There's an elegance of execution, planning, and forethought. It's a complex and interesting study. The remix track used brings in many layers of the songs all come together in the same way that all the women, Cylon and human, come together in the devastation and culmination of gaining and losing Hera.

[livejournal.com profile] tzegha's Dirty Hole (Life) - Kickass editing, inspired clip choice, and amazing thesis. It's about Charlie, his prison; Dani, her prison; Ted, his prison; and all the things that signify them.

[livejournal.com profile] sapote3's The Test (Torchwood) - It's like there Gwen and Tosh and this vid is the line between them.
[livejournal.com profile] sapote3's Teeth in the Grass (Doctor Who) - While it may shatter any illusions as to how awesome it would be to travel with the Doctor as a Companion, the music matches are excellent and there's beautiful moment in the 1:40s to watch for.
