Day 11 - An anime/animated vid you love

Mr Blue Sky by [livejournal.com profile] charmax (WALL-E)

One of my favourite vids to come out of Festivids - adorable robots in love! In space! As ever, Charmax caters to my whims exceedingly well. :D I haven't seen the film, and I really don't think you need to in order to appreciate this vid.

As seen everywhere already, a follow-up series to A:TLA has been announced! The Legend of Korra. eeee! And here is an interview with the creators. Here is a hi-res promo shot that is now my desktop background. So pretty!

I am also entirely charmed by this piece of fanart (Korra, Aang) :D

Us by [personal profile] lim (multi-fandom)

I'm still not sure I fully understand this vid, truth to be told. I love it regardless.

Day 9 - A vid that makes you cry

The Railway House by [personal profile] trelkez (Torchwood)

:(

If I haven't got my lump in my throat by about halfway through, then the very last shot will always get me. It's a beautiful vid that makes me sad in a cathartic, aching kind of way where the show just made me miserable.

Papa Don't Preach by [profile] fan_euncie and [personal profile] trelkez (Doctor Who & Torchwood)

I could talk about how cleverly this is constructed etc, but mostly it gives me GLEE (AND LULZ) IN MY SOUL OMG. BEST EVER. This makes me laugh out loud every goddamn time, and also makes me 'awww' in an embarrassing fashion. (Ianto says that he's going to marry him, yay!)

DLZ by [livejournal.com profile] bop_radar (Sarah Connor Chronicles)

I miss this show so much, and this is an incredible vid that really captures the essence of it for me. It's also really complex and intelligent and rewards multiple viewings. I've lost count of how many times I've seen it.

Women's Work by Luminosity and sisabet (Supernatural)

Okay, my 'everyone' here is very caveated - if you have triggers related to graphic, sexualised violence against women, then this is not the vid for you.

I find this vid profoundly disturbing to watch. I'm also very, very glad that it exists. It's a damming portrayal of some of the worst of Supernatural, but the worst thing is that it's so easy to imagine many other sources that have more than enough material to make similar vids. The issues about representation of women that this vid raises are ones I feel very strongly about, and so this presents a visceral argument that I'd like a great many people to see. I generally subscribe to the notion of 'comfort the disturbed, disturb the comfortable', and this certainly accomplishes the latter - well, it's disturbing all around, really. It's also a really excellent example of how much vidding is capable of.

On a totally different and much lighter note, I realise that is Femslash Day and unfortunately I have nothing to offer at the moment! This ought to be rectified.

Give me some ladyslash pairings and I will attempt to write ficlets, or rec some things, or flail about why they're awesome, or similar. No guarantees I'll get to everything, but have at it!

People Get Ready by [personal profile] heresluck (Heroes)

This is one of the best types of ensemble vid, because it looks at the ways in which the characters make up larger patterns and a greater whole. I love the sense of self-discovery in this and the growing understanding of the world. The editing is fluid and a joy to watch, and it reminds me of the best of this show, back in the day.

Fanwork noticeboard, discussion forum, etc. I am also excited to announce that the comm will be hosting an inaugural flash challenge for fanworks set post-series, running between now and the end of the month.

Cathedrals by [livejournal.com profile] chaila43 (BSG, Laura, D'Anna, Caprica)

This is a character study of three women who I heart, and it's beautiful and full of the promise that Battlestar had for such a long time. It's the sense of longing in the vid that gets to me the most - the desire for truth, for one's life to make sense. It doesn't hurt that it's set to one of my favourite songs. ♥!

The outpouring of awesome from my flist continues. :D Spoilers abound in both fanworks.

Change of Time by [personal profile] trelkez is a Rory vid that is beautifully edited and full of emotion. It gives me many feelings! Oh, Rory! <3

Stories We Tell Our Children by [livejournal.com profile] calapine (Eleven, River, Amy, Rory, G)
Tell stories; be kind; remember. A response to The Big Bang.

My heart, guys, calapine wrote it out and put it on a screen. This encapsulates everything I loved about this season and the characters and themes, perfectly, and it gets right at the heart of what Doctor Who is all about when it's at its very best. Amazing.

Day 2 - A male character study vid you love

Evening on the Ground by [livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl. (SGA, John Sheppard) John gets a lot of fantastic vids, but this is one of my very favourites. When I first found it it was the first time I'd seen editing like it - not only is it a visual feast, but each effect chosen adds to the story told.

Day 1 - A vid that made you start watching a brand new show

Not brand new, exactly, but I'd stopped watching Skins after the first series. Then [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24 made Soil, Soil, and I found myself mainlining S3 within the week. Oh, Emily/Naomi, how so adorable? ♥
