This might be the perfect Ginny song, and this video delivers. I really love how you've traced Ginny's path like the show has, and I LOVE the montage of the #putherinthegame campaign. Awesome vid!

AHHHHHHH I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START. THAAAANK YOUUUUU. So much crying. So so much crying. Ugh. Where do I even BEGIN?! You had me at the opening with the shots of the flowers and Ginny's anxiety meeting the fans who were all so excited to see her. The song choice is just BRILLIANT and I adore how you make "I have stamina" all about Ginny's stamina for public scrutiny and the media, which very clearly IS the stamina-hurdle she (and women in general) is challenged with rather than stamina for athletics. So that insightful twist which is totally spot-on in the show, but so artfully raised up here, well it just guts me completely.

BUT THEN you bring in the support of her family and friends, how her circle of trust expands. The part with the team and the photo shoot! OMG I cried over that when it aired SO HARD and then it happens here and I lost it all over again. (um also Ginny dancing <3 <3 <3 *heartpupils*) And FIRST campaign and how FIRST = ALONE. "I transform with pressure" <-- MOST GINNY LINE EVER. OMGGGGG AND THEN THE #PutHerInTheGame SEQUENCE? Where Ginny feels SUPPORTED by fans?! DEAD. CRYING AND DEAD.

p.s. you used a LOT of the few SF Giants moments in the show, which leads me to believe we are already friends and you know things I didn't put in my letter. OR you think they are villains, and well, that's (kind of) understandable. I'm totally OK with SF Giants as villains when it comes to Ginny Baker.

As the recipient already mentioned, it's BRILLIANT that you framed the line about stamina with media scrutiny and the pressure of fame; and that the trust grows as her circle of support does, and that the joy of the sport is linked to the joy felt by the fans. Amazing, amazing work!!!

What a perfect song for Ginny and her journey. I hope the show gets more of a chance to endure as well.

The vid takes care to show Ginny's moments of insecurity and the way she has to work through them, as well as her successes and times of confidence. This makes for a really well-rounded--and well-argued--picture of her as The Greatest. A really well done vid. :)

Yessssss, what a great character study, I am full of feelings! What I love that you capture here is how Ginny powers through the physical and athletic challenges through sheer will, and how much of that fight and endurance she has to bring to just existing in her situation. And she does! Because she is amazing!

I'm not going to be able to leave this vid the vid feedback it deserves right now but I wanted to say that I think that besides the vids I received, this is my favorite vid of Festivids this year. It is the PERFECT Ginny vid that I've wanted to see that captures her struggles, her glories, her feelings, her resilience and her GREATNESS so brilliantly. The song choice is EVERYTHING and WOW you used the rap verse sooo well with how you go deeper into her psyche and take away the rest of the world. Everything from beginning to end is so so right and it makes me cry with how much it means and I just LOVE this vid so so much. Thank you for making this vid, it means a lot to me <3
