Here is a posting template, if you want to use it:

Subject Line: Fandom Name: Vid Title by Vidder's Name
redcirce: orange octopus (cephalopod)

Vid Title: We Found Love
Vidder: foomatic21
Fandom: Romeo + Juliet (Baz Luhrmann 1996 film)
Summary: For never was there a tale of more woe; than this of Juliet & her Romeo.

Reccer's Comments: A kinetic, fun vid which somehow goes perfectly with Rihanna's We Found Love, capturing the brightness and visual pop of the movie, the excitement and drama of young love, and
the (perfectly edited) and dark ending of it.

Vid Title: There There
Vidder: Luminosity
Fandom: Angel the Series
Summary: Illyria totally disrupted Wesley.
Reccer's Comments: Okay, so I am reccing a vid that is over a decade old at this point. I recently reheard the song There There (The Boney King of Nowhere) by Radiohead, and remembered this vid and how amazing it is.

I wasn't even particularly invested in Angel the series at this point, and especially not Wesley or Fred, but this video gave me many feelings I didn't even know I had. Lum does a great juxtaposition of Wesley, struggling to deal with the spectre of Fred and the horror of her body being inhabited by someone else with Illyria, god-like but lost and trying to find her way in the new world she's found herself into. The song is haunting and dreamy, and Lum's subtle effects and cuts underscore the melancholy well. Years on, Luminosity is still just one of my favorite vidders ever.

Vid Title: Raspberry Swirl
Vidder: se42
Fandom: Suspiria
Summary: Suzy enrolls in a prestigious dance academy, befriends a girl named Sarah, and uncovers an ancient evil. (Or, welcome to evil dance school.)
Reccer's Comments: This is very cool and really well done! I love the use of color and how the cutting never lets up (and it kind of makes me want to watch the source despite not being fond of horror movies).

Vid Title: Stayin Low!
Vidder: Hollywoodgrrl
Fandom: Aliens series
Summary: Hopin' she can sock it to me one mo' time.
Reccer's Comments: I was inspired to post this by the last vid recced also being an Aliens fanvid! Stayin' Low is one of my favorite fanvids, full stop. Bouncy, kinetic, wonderfully cut, and seamlessly combining 4 movies to create an incredible portrait of Ripley, one of the original sci-fi badasses. I cannot say enough good things about this vid or this vidder! If you like the Aliens series and have not already seen this, you really, really should.

Vid Title: U.S.
Vidder: innerbrat
Fandom: Captain Americ
Summary: It’s supersoldiers all the way down.
Reccer's Comments: I love this vid because it takes the existing canon, looks at the subtext, and makes it text. The super soldier program is such an awful idea and the only time it isn't a crime against nature, peace, and common sense is when it's viewed through Steve Rogers. Everyone wants the power and they want Steve until they realize it won't be coming through him. This vid doesn't shy away from how good Steve is, but it focuses our attention on the other aspects of creating "super men", the ambiguity, the horror, and the dream of being powerful/invulnerable and how contagious, glorious, and destructive that dream is.

Vid Title: Here I Love You
Vidder: Bendtothesun & Warkitten
Fandom: White Collar

Summary: Somehow, they ended up in love.

Reccer's Comments: This is a gorgeous vid and the vidders put a ton of work into the coloring, fades, overlays, and other visual effects. It's 1st season Neal, Peter, and El. The song is Melodies and Desires by Lykke Li and it is used to great effect. "Love is the harmony, Desire is the key, Love is the melody, Now sing it with me." A great, dreamy, visually compelling OT3 vid without any of the later ::ahem:: baggage.

Vid Title: Hoping Machine
Vidder:Eunice
Fandom:Harry Potter
Summary:"To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever." JKR (Sorcerer's Stone)
Reccer's Comments:Some of my best loved vids took me several listens before I really latched on. The song was written by Woody Guthrie and is sung by Jay Farrar. I think giving it a few listens before watching the vid can help if you're not familiar with it. But, again like my most favorite vids, the song just seems to be written for the images Eunice chose. The phrase "let your plans come out of mistakes, These are the plans and nothing can tear down, Made out of things that have already been torn down" is everything that is tragic and uplifting about Harry Potter, both the character and the story.
