VVC 2013 Playlist Post
(The playlists will eventually link to the vid as hosted by the vidder, but these links may not be live yet.)
I haven't seen all the premiering vids yet, but of the ones I have seen, my favorites are:rhoboat, Supremacy (James Bond)
This is the stand-out vid of the con for me. It makes me want to actually watch the second two Daniel Craig Bond films, even if it makes me want to watch them for Judi Dench and not Daniel Craig. But mostly it makes me want to watch it over and over and over again to figure out the exact details of how the action during the choruses is cut, because, guys, I want to figure it out
. The movement and positioning here is phenomenal, and it's hooked to enough of a character study or emotional or narrative arc to keep me heavily invested.bananainpyjamas, I'm Not Superman (Lego Batman: DC Superheroes)
This is the most fun vid of the con for me. And it made me care about tiny plastic Batman's pain! It made me ship tiny plastic Batman and tiny plastic Superman! Tiny plastic Batman emotes way more than Christian Bale. Life is SO HARD for tiny plastic Batman.ghost_lingering, Shepherds (Firefly/Serenity)
Full disclosure: I offered to beta this a while ago. I ... did not actually manage to send any beta comments.
Utterly compelling. Uses dialogue edited into a spoken word performance in a beautiful and rhythmic way to construct a backstory/autobiography for Book. It is short but feels incredibly full.absolutedestiny, Age Like Wine (Multi)
For a few clips I thought this was the remix challenge, but it swiftly became clear it was a self-portrait. Though I do still think of it as a kind of remix of "Walking on the Ground."sockkpuppett, Retrograde (Beasts of the Southern Wild)
Leaves ripples in the water.kass, Bathysphere (Fringe)
Briefly tempted me to watch Fringe
again. Olivia Dunham: Still the best.obsessive24, Devil Wouldn't Recognize You (Elementary)
Intense to the point of claustrophobia.destina, Sorrow (The Eagle)
A lovely and evocative mood piece.shati, Total Eclipse of the Heartsword (Revolutionary Girl Utena)
An accurate representation of Utena.
Not new, but new to meKitovraska, Loneliness (I Love You ... I'll Kill You) (Disney movies)
[Brand-New Classic Hits]
The tragic romance of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.Pogo, Alice (Disney remix) (Alice in Wonderland)
[Brand-New Classic Hits]
I'm not sold on all the choices about repeated footage, but this is bizarre and dreamlike, not in the drifty floaty way but in the disturbing disjunctive way. Scraps of memory and scraps of meaning.
