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.
selfindulgentbitch: (the end)

Vid Title: Hoping Machine
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.

Vid Title: Can't Go Back Now
Vidder: such heights
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Summary: But in the end, the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself
Reccer's Comments: This is Willow, her journey, her missteps, her outright dishonorable choices, the wrongs done to her, and her amazing personal strength, resilience, and love. It's how we all move from childhood to adulthood with the added kick of the magnitude of the supernatural power she has. For good or bad, she can't go back.

Vid Title: Harry James Potter~Shake It Out
Vidder: ntertanedangel
Fandom: Harry Potter
Summary: A tribute/character study of Harry James Potter: The Boy Who Lived
Reccer's Comments: I love Harry and the vidder clearly does, too. After watching it, I wouldn't have believed the song wasn't written for Harry's story, which is usually true of my favorite vids. It communicates the inescapable devil inside of him, the tragedy of his struggle and his mistakes, but with a soaring sound and images that make it clear he won't give up.

Vid Title: One Jump Ahead
Vidder: crystalshard
Fandom: White Collar
Summary: Neal tries to keep one jump ahead of the law. It doesn't always work.
Reccer's Comments: This is a very funny vid that had me laughing out loud at various points because the clips match the Disney song One Jump Ahead from Aladdin so well. This vid is fast-paced, cute and a lot of fun. It's a rather old vid, so it only uses clips from season one, but it's still my favorite White Collar vid.

Reccer's Comments: This vid is stunning and beautifully edited. The scene selection is perfect and the overall effect is really moving.
Warnings: Vid contains blood and spoilers for the end of the film.

Vid Title: One Mississippi
Vidder: [personal profile] kaydeefalls
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
Summary: Can I only change your history for a day? Time travel, paradoxes, and breaking all the rules.
Reccer's Comments: This is one of those wonderful Doctor Who vids that brings the entire new series together and makes it feel like one whole, continuous, interwoven story. And that story is about FEELINGS. Also time travel and stuff.

Vid Title: We can't tell you who we are ~ Animorphs DreamCast
Vidder: [ profile] stephantom
Fandom: Animorphs
Summary: Dedicated to everyone who loved the crap out of these books as a preteen in the late 90s.
Reccer's Comments:
Vid for the book series of my childhood!! (There was also a tv show, but we don't talk about that.) The vidder does a fantastic job melding such a variety of sources into a cohesive vid. (I'm especially impressed with the way she found footage that looked like some of the more unique aliens in the series.) The colouring used creates a consistent "look" without being distracting. It's just a pretty vid.
Note on casting )

I honestly think this vid would be enjoyable even to people unfamiliar with the books. The series involves a group of teenagers with the ability to turn into animals, which they use to battle a secret invasion of Earth. The aliens they fight are slug-creatures that infest the brain, taking control of other sentient beings. Cue trauma.

First time posting here, I hope everything is OK.

Vid Title:
Merlin - The Hitchhiker's Guide To Camelot
Vidder: Chayiana
Fandom: Merlin (BBC)/ The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (movie)
Summary: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie trailer soundtrack combined with the footage from Merlin.
Reccer's Comments: Hilarious! The original trailer is as clever as this Merlin version here. (And I'm a little bit proud of myself, providing her the original idea.)

Vid Title: "Premakes" Raiders of the Lost Ark (1951)
Vidder: whoiseyevan
Fandom: Raiders of the Lost Ark
Summary: What if... Raiders of the Lost Ark was a 50s film serial? Who would be best suited for the role of Indiana Jones? How would his villains translate to this era? What would the film's musical score sound like?
Reccer's Comments: these "premakes" are an interesting look at what more modern movies might have looked like if they were made back then.
