First off, I can't thank [personal profile] bingeling enough for requesting this and introducing me to this wonderful miniseries. I decided to check it out after reading her letter and I don't think I can put into words how much I enjoyed it. It blew me away. As bingeling said in one of her tweets, I didn't know German tv could DO that. The posters (and that DVD cover, ugh) and marketing really don't do it justice and made it look unnecessarily kitschy, which it isn't, at all. In essence it is about the lives and relationships of four women in 1956 Berlin, where the impact of the war is still felt in subtle and not so subtle ways.

Some viewers expressed interest in watching it after seeing the vid. It is available on Netflix in some countries (that list seems to be incomplete, though - better check your local Netflix for yourself) and I would also be happy to help you find other ways to watch it, although I haven't been able to find any English subtitles for it yet. :(

The vids I made this year were:

A Forest (Limbo) for [personal profile] mithborien
Fire Starter (Supergirl) for [personal profile] elipie
Under Pressure (The Martian) for [personal profile] niyalune

I definitely expected someone to guess me for A Forest but apparently it wasn't as obvious as I thought! Meanwhile [personal profile] anoel guessed me for Under Pressure, which I expected to be the least obvious. Full of surprises.

will hopefully get around to finish vid posts complete with subtitles/notes/links after the weekend/once I'm not tired af anymore.

A third of this vid was made by [personal profile] goodbyebird's brain, honestly. I told her about this vague idea that I had but wasn't really sure about and she took it and turned it into a vision, fuelled my excitement and motivated me to finish it. Making this vid was a journey full of feels and I made myself cry quite a lot. I'm happy that people seemed to like it so much, and that I got to make it for my friend [personal profile] niyalune who loves The Martian as much as I do. <3

Thanks to [personal profile] goodbyebird and [personal profile] brokenmnemonic for the beta feedback.

This is a vid I started last year, but I never finished it and was hoping it would get requested again. I went into Festivids with two possible songs for this but couldn't quite make them work the way I wanted. So I went vidsong hunting again with two weeks left before the deadline and found this amazing cover of the The Cure song. Phew!

I knew this time I wouldn't get away with using footage downloaded from Youtube, as I usually do with game vids - because Limbo is in black and white and high contrast-y the image looks particularly crappy and full of artifacts when compressed too much. I've never recorded a whole game myself and I had to face a whole bunch of problems, especially framerate issues that I never want to deal with again. *muffled crying*

Nevertheless I'm really happy with the result.

PS. This little boy is very determined to fall through the glass with his feet first and this is the one thing that'll always bother me about this vid. (I yelled at the screen so much. SMASH YOUR HEAD IN, TIMMY, WHY WON'T YOU CRASH THROUGH THE GLASS HEADFIRST WHY.)

This is simultaneously a tribute to my favourite movie of the year and a nod to my favourite band and one of my favourite music videos of all time.
I know many of my old MCR era friends loved the movie as much as I did and it inevitably reminded them of Danger Days as well, so if any of them are reading this, know that I thought of you and the times we had on tour a lot while making this vid. <3
