02:27 pm - Vid recs, extremely multifandom
Yep, these are mostly different fandoms (including one original piece), and all worth your time. :)

Sherlock (BBC)
Underground, by lim
This is a stunningly cut vid, set to that "dueling cellos" version of "Smooth Criminal" that was going around the Internet a few weeks back. I could watch this forever (full screen, it's good quality).

War Drums, by kinoksana
Set to "War Drums" by Perfect Circle, this is one of the single most adriotly edited vids I have ever run across, and the emotional level is high, too. "You're not haunted by the war. You miss it."

Book of Eli
O Death, by crickets
Wonderous. This is visually intriguing film anyway, but the choice of song is thematically appropriate, and the vidder cuts together both the original version of the song and the new one that SPN fans will be familiar with from S6 promo ads.

White Collar
I Take Your Word
Thank goodness, a gen friendship vid. :) This is lyrical, with gorgeously asymmetrical wipes and slow fades complimenting the classy visual style of the show. Peter and Neal, learning to take each other's words.

Thought of You
Exquisite line animation. Just watch this. Please, out of all of these vids, watch this one.

"Thought of You" is really brilliant, thanks for the rec!

Your link to "War Drums" seems to be broken, though.

You're welcome!

And War Drums link is now fixed, thanks for spotting that.

Thanks - that's a great video too, and not one I've come across elsewhere, either.

Thank you for insisting that we should watch "Thought of You". Wow. I'm not entirely sure what it means, but then one is never entirely sure what poetry means.

You're welcome! Yes, that's exactly it--it's visual poetry. :) I think it's about love and loss, but... I need to watch it some more.
