Suffrage, using footage from the movie Iron Jawed Angels, about the fight for women's suffrage. Really powerful and moving.

I Will Follow, T:SCC, about Savannah's relationship with John Henry. Adorable, and fascinating to see their relationship distilled down like this.

There is a masterlist of links here. My personal favorite is [personal profile] tablesaw's ditty to be sung to the tune of "Donald, Where's Your Trousers?" - with which I would be completely unfamiliar but for T:SCC, even though I gather it's a rather famous Scottish folk song.

See, the thing about Vid Farr is, when I'm in its grip, everything else is out of my consciousness. Reading LJ, the news, even work I'm supposed to be doing, falls by the wayside. And it's not just about an urgency to vid - it's like whatever problems I was having with a vid, finding the right clips, getting the timing right, whatever, are all just solved - all the sections that I didn't know what to do with, where I searched and searched for clips that would fit, suddenly I know exactly what needs to happen there and it's all so clear - I go from not knowing what to do with half the vid to suddenly having so many ideas that I can't decide what section to vid first.

And then when the Farr is over, I poke my head up, look around, and it feels like I'm waking up from a dream. I have no idea what just happened the last couple of days, but I'm facing an empty refrigerator, a dangerously low supply of catfood, and a stack of bills I was supposed to pay days earlier (yikes!).

It's so disorienting.

Also, when I'm in Vid Farr, I can't watch other vids. See, usually, I love watching vids and I especially like to study them so I can improve my own technique. I have a whole folder of "vids to study" on my hard drive that contains vids where there's something about the technique or the effects that I think I can learn from. But when I'm experiencing the Farr, I can't even think about any other vids.

The upshot of all this is, I fell embarrassingly behind in my VVC vid viewing, and by now I'm sure everyone's seen everything, but, for posterity's sake, I come bearing recs:

They Don't Know, by [ profile] laurashapiro. Doctor Who, Rose/Ten. I love this vid because it captures both the squee and a sense of ironic self-awareness.

We Are, by [ profile] bananainpyjamas. SCC. It looks like SCC and Dollhouse were the big vid favorites this year at VVC (and it makes sense - they're pretty, and with only a few episodes, they're easy to get a handle on as a vidder). Anyway, this is a gorgeous SCC vid, I love the themes and the song choice and I particular love the way she perfectly selects clips to match the intensity of the song, and also to highlight little musical flourishes. So awesome.

I'm Not Dead, by [ profile] dualbunny. BSG. With the third installment in her series, Dualbunny has now definitively proven that Pink is the voice of Starbuck.

Also, a fic rec - [ profile] rivkat's The Glamorous Life. Dean gets turned into an incubus, and so, naturally, he has sex with Sam. And other people. It's fantastic. She's had this one in the works forever and I had to beg her to finish it because she was afraid it stepped too close to the Id Vortex. Bite your tongue, I say! There is no such thing.

I still haven't even watched everything that's been posted, but here's what I've got so far--

Lotsa recs! )

For anyone like me who was mourning the renewal of Dollhouse in the face of T:SCC's cancellation,this post explains the economics. Basically, Fox owns Dollhouse but not SCC, which allows Fox to profit from a wider variety of items.

Edit:. As [personal profile] elz points out, they keep using that word "feminist.". I do not think it means what they think it means.

[profile] aycheb has created a stunningly lovely SCC vid focused on Ellison. It's really just incredibly beautiful.
