Now I'm intrigued. I've never heard of this series but it looks like I'll have to check it out. Recruiter vid! That's one thing I love most about Festivids.

I love your use of motion in this. It feels for all the world like a dance. Also, great composition all through. Just a really well-made vid.

I love this so much. Thank you for making it for me!

The song choice is inspired. The Cape was always a show that was better at looking good than making sense, so an instrumental is perfect for highlighting the visuals, and this one really gets at the Carnival part of the Carnival of Crime, the show's antic sense of humor and the confusion about the line between heroism and vigilantism. This vid moves so well to the music.

I love the way you worked through the training montages from the first episode in the first minute in the vid, and then you continue on from there to show how Vince continues to learn how to be the Cape as the show goes on, how it's not a transformation but a process that he's continually engaging with. And I love how you show the techniques he learns in his practice efforts getting applied. The prehensile cape first failing in practice, then succeeding, and then becoming a tool The Cape uses in combat...

And you engage so brilliantly with the show's bizarre sense of humor. The raccoon!!!! <3 I keep watching this vid again and again and it fills me with delight.
