Festivids is live! And I received three awesome vids!

Feel the love - Portal series
A vid that shows the awesomeness of the Portal games and the creativity of the fandom.

Paper Planes - Bandidas
A vid that shows the awesomeness of the bank-robbing BFFs Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz.

Gorgeous - Hugh Jackman RPF
A vid that shows the dancing awesomeness of Hugh Jackman.

You may note that I described all the vids as awesome and that's because they were. Many thanks to whoever made these vids for me. I look forward to finding out who you are!

So Festivids went live over the weekend and I received two lovely vids!

Freakin Friends (Daria)
It's set to the song that Trent's band Mystik Spiral sings to Daria and Jane and to borrow other people's adjectives it is perfect and nostalgic and awesome! It's probably about a year ago that I marathoned the entire series but this was still fabulous to receive. Exactly what I was wanting when I made the request so thank you so much to the vidder :)

Cosmic Love (Florence + the Machine & Fandom)
This is not the vid I would have expected but the vidder has taken various fandom vids and combined them with Florence's music videos in to a kind of love letter towards vids. I'm not good at describing things but it is definitely one to check out! A very atmospheric vid.

I should have some more Festivid recs in the coming days when I get a chance to go through them all. But I must admit I am very happy with people's responses to my own vid. Sadly I only managed to make the one but it's delightful watching people's comments trickle in.

Edited: Now anonymous no more!

So I spent a good deal of time last night watching Festivids and I think I am about halfway through the list.

But I have to rec the two vids which were gifted to me both from the movie Red.

W-o-m-a-n by [ profile] valoise is a character study on Victoria who I thought was a fabulous character so I was quite delighted to receive this vid.

And secondly, Me against the music by [ profile] greensilver, a general recap of the movie focusing on Bruce and Karl's characters, which is only enhanced by the fantastic song choice. It shouldn't work but it totally does!

So thank you so much for both vids! They were fantastic :)
