Fandom: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Summary: Cameron's not a real girl.
Reccer's Comments: A blunt little character study of Cameron, via John Henry and tons of computer imagery. I love how blunt it is, and how it amusingly responds to the questioning all the sci-fi does of whether robots are people with the answer that, maybe, but they are also COMPUTERS. Computers steal computers for their own computer purposes! Plus it has really fun editing and musicality.

(For purposes of the secondary challenge, which I shall conquer I don't know whether to say this is from an old fandom or a current fandom? My once and forever fandom? <3)

Vid Title: Does Cameron Dream of Electric Sheep?
Vidder: [livejournal.com profile] kiki_miserychic
Fandom: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Summary: Does Cameron dream of electric sheep?
Reccer's Comments: This vid is a visually dynamic look into a Terminator's brain and how Cameron might receive and store information. It's an exploration of Cameron's POV and everything--the clip choices, the visual connections, the editing--works together to make it look and feel that way. It seems disjointed, robotic, but organized, like a robot brain. It's mechanical, until it isn't. The visual and context connections are sometimes subtle but always brilliant, capturing some connections that Cameron might make--different kinds of hands, memories of different events she might connect together-- the information she might store about each of the humans, the human motions, emotions and expressions that she takes in, mimics and executes perfectly.

Summary: We are the Resistance. (ensemble)
Reccer's Comments:

To me this vid is about walking the edge of control, the loss of control, and violence. It is about fighting a fight that you're not sure you can win, fighting it anyway, and the awful toll that results. The intensity of the song and the images get to me every time and I watch this vid a lot. Interspersed are moments of grace, both human and robot, are they enough?

But this is beginning to feel like

Vidder: [personal profile] charmax
Fandom: Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles/Battlestar Galactica
Summary: That body was made to look like a person. We were made in God's image.
Reccer's Comments: This vid, I never get over how beautiful it is visually, how clear its message is. It blends robots and religinos through two shows, seamlessly, with breathtaking editing, including still overlays, text work and even some seamlessly integrated voiceovers. In a beautiful cascade of devastation, it asks us where the boundries of our evolution lie. If we are, ever, toolbuilders, if that is the adaptability that gave rise to our global dominance, when our tools surpass us - is this outside the bounds of nature? It's thoughtprovoking and wonderful.

Vid Title: there's a war going on for your mind, sarah.
Vidder: [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria
Fandom: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Summary: Sarah Connor and Catherine Weaver engage in a rap battle.
Reccer's Notes: Starting off with one of my favorite vids of all time! I claim no objectivity, since this vid was a present for me, but trust me when I say it's amazing. This vid envisions the whole show as a philosophical conflict between Sarah Connor and Catherine Weaver, and the result is a brilliant, chewy encapsulation of the deeper meta themes of the show and the fundamental questions about the way forward that Sarah has to answer. Plus, a meta conflict between two such powerful female characters, be still my heart brain heart.
