Thank you so much, Festividder! I thoroughly enjoyed this -- had a smile on my face the whole way through. I love how each character and critical plot development is introduced by a new instrument or change in the music.

Lively and sweet and fun! :D

Anonyvidder! This is amazing! I loved Marianne as the violin and Elinor as the viola--perfect, especially the duet as Marianne wakes up from the fever--and all the quick changes to go with the plot twists. Awesome.

I'm so glad you liked it! So much of the vid fell into place when I realized that I could use the low register for Elinor and the higher register for Marianne. Apparently I've come a long way from the days when I cut huge sections of the bridge to avoid having to vid music without words! Hee.

I love this concept! You did such a good job getting all the important developments, especially through people's expressions and reactions. Which is kind of perfect for a source about a society where people often can't SAY what they're thinking or feeling, or aren't supposed to, because it wouldn't be polite. Favorite part: Brandon gives flowers to Marianne, and she hands them to Elinor! Then keeps Willoughby's. HEE!

Thank you so much, and bless you for noticing and mentioning the flowers scene; I just love that contrast in the movie and could not resist highlighting it in the vid. Best part: Elinor's just standing there and then suddenly she has to swoop in and grab Brandon's flowers, which her sister hands over with hardly a look. Oh, Marianne, honey. *facepalm*

And you're so right about the social components of the movie; Thompson is just brilliant at the superficially polite facial expressions that nevertheless manage to convey so much about the unprintable things Elinor is thinking and would never ever say. Hee!

This was lovely. I really liked how it was edited together, sharply. Also, I really have a thing for wordless vids, and this kind of vid is why. Great job.

Brilliant use of song with this source is brilliant. I really adored how you assigned different instruments to different characters or moods, and how beautifully you advance the storytelling through the use of the song. And you did a fantastic job of showing the core relationship between the sisters. The vid reminded me of why I love this adaptation.

Oh gosh, this comment just made my day. I love classical music, but I've never vidded it before, and I've also never vidded something entirely instrumental, so I was really worried that I was going to make a hash of it. Your comment assures me that I did okay. I appreciate it so much, seriously.

(And I love this adaptation tooooooo. Emma Thompson FTW!)

I might be biased because I have a soft spot for anything Jane Austen adapted, even that horrible horrible movie Becoming Jane, because JANE FUCKING AUSTEN, okay? But yeah. This reminded me of all the feels I have for the film and the sisters, and Jane Austen and how she writes relationships between women in general.

From: [personal profile] heresluck
I admit that I am not sufficiently hardcore to have seen Becoming Jane, hee. But I am right there with you on the power of JANE FUCKING AUSTEN, and it always makes me so happy when the novels are adapted well. One of the things I love most about this S&S is just how well it conveys that relationship between Elinor and Marianne; they don't always understand each other, but they love each other deeply, they take care of each other, they leap to each other's defense. (That moment where Marianne leaps up during dinner and asks to go play the fortepiano to distract everyone from picking on Elinor? *clutches heart*)
