Lyrics
An intersection of the plain
by the bank of
some
great stream.
The animal
carcasses
and skeletons would be
entombed.
A step formed
terrace.
Succession.
Embedded years
accumulating
so tranquilly
small quadrupeds.
So perfectly
epochs collected here.

What a fabulous way to vid this movie. Perfect manipulation & accompaniment of the damaged footage, and great buildup of tension as the team tries to handle its encounter with something beyond human experience. Bookmarking for the file of great space vids!

The slooooow pace of this and the music and the WAITING really draw in the tension. Lovely and taut vid.

You held my attention for nearly five minutes with low-key abstract music. I don't know if you know me? But that's really hard to do.

I just love everything about this vid, the way the music is the sort of mood/atmosphere that heightens the mood of the clips, slowly, almost imperceptibly ratcheting up the tensions while also giving this feeling of solemn inevitability to everything.

Kudos.

Really unique vid, through and through. I can't believe you chose the The Knife's crazy obscure opera as the song (bc who even knows that?) so I applaud your decision. It really added so much to the situation!

What a fascinating song choice. Makes it tense and alien and uncertain and is very fitting for the found footage format. I love that the singing voice comes in once the first person prepares to actually set foot on the surface. The lyrics are so chilling and perfectly used - the moment when it tips from them finding alien life entombed in the ice to realizing that the humans are going to be just that themselves, that they have stepped into this bigger, uncompromising force of life? Amazing. (By the way, great vid title, too.) Also, the way the music suddenly cuts off right before the end is incredibly effective.
