LOVED THIS. I've always wanted to use this song in a vid but now I'm glad I didn't, because this was the perfect vid for it!

I SQUEALED at the last shot.

Awesome job!

You are so kind to say so, thank you! *beams*

I've always wanted to use this song in a vid

Heeee, I hear you! It's just so slinky and smoothly menacing and gorgeous, it's been in my vidsong folder for ages; I just never had a fandom to go with it until I watched V, fell for Anna and couldn't resist matching a snake-song with a snake-lady. :-D

I LOVED THIS VID SO MUCH! It was perfectly structured, edited, and had the best ending ever. So good! (I literally sprinted from the Con Suite so not to miss the beginning of Also-Premiering just because I saw there was a V vid, lol. So glad I didn't miss this gem!)

Awww, that is so great to hear, thanks very much -- you put such a smile on my face. I'm so glad the vid worked for you and you got to see it in the show and everything!

I've only seen a few episodes of this series, but this is delightfully creepy. That last shot!

Thank you for the feedback! I am v. pleased with 'delightfully creepy', that's just what I was hoping for, and am glad you enjoyed it.

Aw, yay, thanks! This was the first time I vidded such a slow song, and trying to build the mood and pacing was an interesting challenge. I'm so glad this worked for you.

I totally trust in Anna...TO BE EVIL AND EAT MY FACE OFF WITH HER LIZARDNESS. Good job!

*grins* No no no, she means nothing but the best for us! What silly propaganda have you been listening to!!

This is really neat! I haven't watched the cannon at all, but it gave this really creepy good feel to the vid!
13th-Aug-2010 08:27 am (UTC)
Hooray, thanks! I was hoping to make this accessible for non-V-watchers, so I'm so pleased to hear this. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

That was, quite simply, made of awesome. :-) I now have a need to see this. :-P

Woo, glad to hear it! :-)

I loved this so much. I've never watched V but I was gripped by the fantastic sense of serenity vs ominousness that pervaded the vid. The editing is so elegant and beautiful, and I love the ending, the way the music truncates out. Awesome!

This is such lovely feedback, thank you very much! *beams* I am particularly happy that the chopped-off sound at the end works for you -- that was something I struggled to get right, as the original song goes on with a very soft 'woo woo woo' lyric that didn't suit my needs.

i have no idea what this show is even about, but WOW. this is absolutely stunning! and i just love how you combined that footage with the song <3 and the ending is awesome, of course! ;)

Thanks very much, yay! I'm so glad you liked it despite not knowing the show.

V is basically about first contact between humans and aliens; I can't recommend the show unreservedly, there's too many problems with the writing, but I do think Anna the V commander is fabulous, and that was the motor for this vid. :-)
