Made for the Eurovision vid show at VidUKon 2014.

Ladies! Lady vampires! Lady vampires eradicating their male population! VAMPIRE MATRIARCHY!
Okay, this movie has a loooot of unused potential which I'm still really sad about and it does have quite a few issues, but it's not terrible, I found it impressive for a German production, and I think it's super pretty visually.



PASSWORD: veins


Lyrics

Walking out into the dark
Cutting out a different path
Led by a beating heart
All the people of the town
Cast their eyes right to the ground
In matters of the heart

The night was all you had
You ran into the night from all you had
Found yourself a path upon the ground
You ran into the night, you can't be found

But, this is your heart
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Pumps through your veins
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?

Summer evening breezes blew
Drawing voices deep from you
Led by a beating heart
What a year and what a night
What terrifying final sights
Put out your beating heart

The night was all you had;
You ran into the night from all you had
Found yourself a path upon the ground
You ran into the night, you can't be found

But, this is your heart
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Pumps through your veins
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?

If you had your gun
Would you shoot it at the sky?
Why?
To see where it would fall?
Oh, will you come down at all?

If you had your gun
Would you shoot it at the sky?
Why?
To see where your bullet would fall?
Oh, will you come down at all?

This is your heart
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Pumps through your veins
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?

This is your racing heart
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Pumps through your veins
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?

Well! This is very badass! VAMPIRE MATRIARCHY. Your editing is so fantastic; I was totally drawn in from the little snippets of barbed wire and blood smears at the beginning, and the whole thing is so visually rich and fun to watch. Lady vampires hunting down dudes!

Awwwww thanks!! Sadly the VAMPIRE MATRIARCHY part of the story is one aspect I wish they'd dealt with more; there wasn't much to work with visually, but I'm glad it still shows in the vid!

Wow, this is great! I don't know the movie, but I really like this vid :)

I have never heard of this movie, but OMG do I want to watch it now! Awesome butt-kicking lady vampires!

Love the editing and the song choice, and how you've made it fun and action-packed, but also incredibly creepy in a really cool way! :D

Thank you! I'm happy to hear the creepy side of the film comes through too, even though I left out the most gruesome bits to make it appropriate for viewing at a con.

This vid makes the film look amazing! I think what I like most is the sense of raw emotion it conveys, the joy of the song mixed with the variety of the imagery - wonder, violence, power... It's a great visual journey.
violace[personal profile] violace on July 1st, 2014 02:54 pm (UTC)
Thank you! The film itself feels very raw (I'd like to say it feels very German, lol) and I'm glad the vid conveys that. The visuals were a joy to work with, really.

This is an amazing vid and I'm definitely going to download and watch the movie. Your editing is superb and the song choice is really really engaging. I was just wowed the whole vid. annnddd. *flails just flails a lot* I just found this really impressive and very enjoyable to watch. One of my favorites from VidUKon. ♥

this comment just made me so haaaappy and flaily in the middle of the night. Thank you! I'd be interested to hear your thoughts about the movie if you watch it someday!

This is so incredible and it makes me want to find the movie and watch it. (And I don't like movies.) BUT VAMPIRE MATRIARCHY. BERLIN. AHHHHH.

This was one of my favourite vids from the Eurovision show! Thank you so much for making and submitting it. I'm hoping the source film will air on Film4 over here (they're quite good at airing foreign language films) because I'm intrigued to see it - particularly having read your description of it now. One of the vampires reminded me of Lisbet Salander crossed with a vampire, which would be... awesome. And if the film is half as pretty and dramatic as your vid, I'll definitely enjoy it!
violace[personal profile] violace on July 25th, 2014 03:12 pm (UTC)
thank you so much! If you ever end up watching the film I'd very much like to know what you think of it. :)

Darling vi0lace, Thank You so much for making this perfcet little gem of a vid. It's got such great dynamic, and manages that balancing act of both conveying the narrative of the films as well as creating an emotional arch that is supported by the song (so important for convention vids for small fandoms, where many viewers are not familiar with the source). And you did this beautifully!

thank you so much!
