Lyrics
A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

This was really interesting. I hadn't seen all of the vids you were referencing, but I really loved how you pulled out all the visual and thematic echoes, and made these widely varied sources look visually coherent.

Thank you! I had such fun chasing out those threads, though once I started looking they were surprisingly easy to find. I'm very glad you felt the cohesion of it all!

That was amazing!!! I love the conceit that carries through the vid and the way it references all these different fandoms, revolving around FatM at the central joyous fan but also the stand in for all the characters. I loved the way Cas works, esp in the falling scene. It's a tad HP heavy, but given that you had a limited fan source text of 14 (?) vids, that's still wonderfully widespread!!! The collection of images and movement and the central, theme of love are beautifully carried out. It didn't feel like 4 min ;)

OMG your icon.

I'm so so glad that you pulled out of it right away FatM as the central joyous fan & as the stand in for all the characters. That's exactly what I was going for... and then for the transitive element there, our identification with the characters. I wanted us to be both Cas hitting and Florence/River falling in that middle scene (which is my fav moment too).

There were 19 vids in the end that I used, plus 5 Florence & the Machine vids. There were some other crazy Cosmic Love horse vids that are immensely popular on YouTube and that I really wanted to incorporate but they would have changed what I/we mean by fan here.... (not that that's a new debate :D)

I'm so so glad that you got into this vid! It was torture not to get to show it to you while it was in process. <3

Wow, this is not what I was expecting if this got vidded but it turned out amazing! I haven't seen all the vids referenced but I really like how you combined everything. Just makes me feel happy about fandom!

Hi! I'm so so glad that you liked the vid. I know that it wasn't what you were imagining, and I felt quite bad about that as I was making it, but your prompt entirely inspired the direction since you were talking about how FaTM is so popular in fandom, and once that seed was planted in my head I just couldn't let it go (or it wouldn't let me go!) I have half a mind to go back though and make you the vid you likely imagined, because I loved working with the music video footage and I'd meant to get into concert video footage too before this thing took on a life of its own.

But I'm so glad that it made you feel happy about fandom, because in the end that was my goal with the vid overall! Well--happy about fandom and FaTM and the merger of the two, of which I'm sure we've seen only the beginning.

Anyway, thank you for the inspiring prompt! This was my first festivid experience but definitely not my last!

From: [personal profile] mithborien
But that's a good thing about Festivids, the fact that you can get a vid that you weren't expecting and it still turns out awesome :)

(Although, I totally wouldn't be opposed if you made a vid with only F+tM ;) I'm sure that would turn out awesome!)

Thank you again for the vid!

This was very cool, kind of a meta-multifandom vid! I liked the way the thematic and visual elements used in the different sources were all brought together along with the original music videos.

From: [personal profile] lola
Thank you! Meta-multifandom was exactly what I was going for. I was amazed by how many thematic and visual threads I found to follow through all the diverse Cosmic Love vids that are out there, and how many parallels there were between the fanvid imagery and the FaTM music videos. This was so much fun to make because I kept discovering all those connections!

Omg, this is the most meta thing to ever meta. Such a clever idea! I really like the idea of Florence as the fan, hearing the music with all these stories and characters in mind.

Haha, thank you! When I first set out to make this vid, I was more thinking of Florence as the object of fan love rather than the fan herself, but when I saw that first juxtaposition of her exuberance next to a fanvid image, she just read so clearly as fan, reveling in all the source texts, that I knew I had to run with it. I had so much fun making this vid--very glad that you enjoyed it!

Thank you thank you! Sometimes I had to take a break in the middle of making this from the sheer trippiness of bringing all these different sources together. So glad you enjoyed it!

From: [personal profile] actiaslunaris
Oh, wow, this is so gorgeous. You win all the points for pulling off an exceedingly difficult concept! I love how meta this is, how it's about love for the song and for pairings, and how it's essentially a gen point of view on shipping, in my opinion. I love this song and you make me want to track down all those vids.

A gen point of view on shipping--I love that way of putting it!

I love the love all these vids have for their ships, if that makes sense... do track down all the vids! Or rather, you don't need to track them down because I linked to them all here along with my rambly vid notes: http://lola.dreamwidth.org/97858.html

Do watch them and spread the (oh god, I'm going to keep with this pun) cosmic love. (forgive me :D)

*exceedingly apologetic facepalm* Late reply is late and I'm very sorry about that.

Thanks so much for the links! I will definitely do that. And wow, such fabulously delicious meta about your process there. That was excellent.

[Agh, I'm so embarrassed...I think I'll just slink away now.]

No need to slink! And thank you for the comment! Enjoy watching all the vids--I had so much fun binging on them all at once. And I still love the song, which is saying something!

Also, I hope you don't mind that creeperly I checked out your DW, saw you posting on Elementary & LBD, my two current favorite things, and friended you (or subscribed, whatever we call it here on DW...)

Being a lurker is a fine tradition. :) Both shows are bringing me a tremendous amount of joy, even though LBD is ending soon. I have thoughts I need to collect about recent events! Welcome!

By the way, I love that icon. I still remember how much I loved their relationship in the books.
