OMG Festividder OMG! This was amazing!I'm kind of incoherent with excitement here. First of all, thank you so much for making this for me. It hits all the things I love about this source. The song choice--oh man! Perfect, esp. given that I am a SPN fan and it captures the weight, spirit, and poignant heart of the movie. Other things I love in no particular order:

-the way you capture all that post-apocalyptic landscape and make it function with the old-time spiritual. From the opening frames of the forest and Eli looking at the skeleton in the car with the low humming starting-yes!

-the way you use the arrows and Solara's grenade on the beats *shivers with goodness* Oh man that first one in the forest-I can't even-

-The voiceover-I never would have thought of including it and it is perfect!

-Solara's scream on Hell

-beautiful use of the fight scene in the tunnel and the attack on Solara. Oh and that moment when Eli turns his face to the sun and Eli with SOlara on the highway. I love those moments in teh movie and it was so good to see them here.

-I love the use of the book and the printing press and Eli and Solara together juxtaposed with Carnegie and Claudia with the voiceover about companionship and shelter. You got the books and the power of the word and companionship in there!

All of the ending. All of it! After all of it, the lightness and spirit and Solara carrying on the mission with her resolute face and the spiritual in her ears.

This is absolutely awesome Festvidder! Thank you so so much for making this and I'm going to run off and watch it about a billion more times.

I loved it all (editing, pacing, footage choice) but I especially can't get over the way you spliced the two versions of O Death together.

From: [personal profile] kyriacarlisle
Woah. Though this isn't source I know, this vid is compelling and so well-cut. I especially like the music choice: the shift from the traditional "O Death" (or, at least, the versions I know) to the unfamiliar, metrically-uneasy, amplified version matches this post-apocalyptic universe so well that it gives me shivers.
