Vid rec: Cante Per Me  
I am actually trying really hard not to post today because I'm crazy busy trying to do tech tidy up on two vids. However, given how maudlin I've been about BSG this week, I can't hesitate to show you something that's hooked me straight back in, for better or worse.

m_a_r_i_k_s has made the most gorgeous and intelligent ensemble vid. It does have a lot of the 'big' ships in there (Adama/Roslin and Kara/Lee) but if you're a non-shipper, please don't let that put you off because it masterfully weaves in so many of the characters we love and has lovely little riffs on their interconnectedness. And it has Kendra! (Oh, Kendra, I miss you!)

For the record, my eyes first filled with tears at 2.02 on the first watch and 1.48 on the second--yes, it gets more moving the more I watch.

This is the kind of vid that deserves an essay-length response, except that no essay could ever be so eloquent.

ETA: Oh, and Cylons! It has Cylons too. :) Sympathetic Cylons even. :p :p :p

Do Cylons count? I didn't know they were part of the show. ;)

Great vid, thanks for the rec.

Humans > Cylons :p *stirring*

You're welcome! I thought of you when she used the shot of Six walking away after killing the baby. :)

Awesome video. My show. And it pressed all my K/L shippy buttons.

Yeah. For me too, though it was actually mainly the other content that broke me and made me remember that I do care about the other characters. It's so well vidded. Gah. It's the kind of vid that makes me think 'why do I bother?' as a vidder myself, but I shall overcome this. *nods*

Your praising makes me blush whereas I'm not a blushy kind of girl :) Thanks a lot for reccing the vid. *grins like a fool*
And please don't let watching this video or any other discourage you in your own work in the slightest. You're one of the finest vidders in BSG fandom and more than technically, you make your videos from the bottom of your heart with so much dedication that it amazes me at times. Not so many people are patient enough to polish a vid for a few months so that it comes out to be exceptional, a kind of vid that one can rewatch over and over.

I had my own turn at blushing there! Eeeps. BSG is a very strong vidding fandom, I'm not so sure I'm up there. But don't worry, I will keep vidding. I am taking a break from BSG vids at the moment but have a Kara vid in planning stage. I'm just not technically as adept as you--the way you blend images in this vid is spectacular.

It's true about it being a commitment to spend months on a vid--I know you understand what that is like. It can be difficult to live with a vid and its emotional tone for so long, and it takes a different sort of discipline to vidding fast.

I love that song. The Noir soundtracks got played lots a few years ago.
