genderswapped star trek scene

Via [personal profile] heathershaped on tumblr, an amazing video where two women perform the scene between Kirk and Pike at the start of the film. It's a fascinating idea on a gender meta level, and also really cool to see how the actors adapt the nuances of the original performances. Incredibly slick and smart all round!

Oooo wow, that was really cool! I want to see the whole movie gender swapped now! I really liked the woman doing Pike, nice!

That's fascinating. And it's so interesting to see how common the impulse is to turn male characters into women - because it's often the only way to get these sorts of female characters, and we want to see them!

Oh oh oh. I love this so much it hurts; I want the ENTIRE REST OF THE MOVIE now, but that will never happen. Thanks for the link.

Fascinating how differently the new!Kirk type reads when you cast a woman there, in that scene in particular; that particular kind of talking to, that validation of potential, is intriguing.

Aw, dude, now I just want them to make the whole movie. And I so ridic wish Pike had been a woman.
