Hands! Rodney McKay’s beautiful, expressive hands! This is a marvelous tribute to our favorite snarky scientist. I can’t hear this song without thinking about Rodney; it’s almost as if it were written just for him. Rache & Sandy (aka Clucking Belles aka Media Cannibals) don’t have their videos uploaded on YouTube or Vimeo so if you weren’t lucky enough to see them in a convention video room or don’t have a membership to Vidders.net you probably haven’t seen their collection of fantastic work. Winner of the 2006 Stargate Fan Award for Best Video: Character (McKay) and the 2006 Stargate Music Video Award (McKay), hands down, if you’ll pardon the pun, this is one of my all-time favorite videos in any fandom.
A well considered selection of clips, brilliant sound editing, fantastic video effects, precise cuts and the Glitch Mob remix of White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” that will make your pulse pound are all combined into one minute and forty-one seconds of vidding perfection.
This is a stunning Person of Interest fan video. I’m a little biased because I’m a total fan of the artist who created it, but I’m sure after watching it you’ll be in complete agreement with me. Now begins the countdown to 27 September 2012 and the premiere of season two!
This episode never fails to crack me up. All the names they come up with for the guy… Big McLarge Huge! The wonderful thing about this fan video is that it wonderfully encapsulates just how awful the movie is and just how brilliant Mike and the Bots are. Enjoy!
Before Hugh Laurie played House and before Benedict Cumberbatch played Sherlock, they co-starred in a BBC series entitled Fortysomething. This is a wonderful fan video that melds all three into a seamless story using Harry Chapin’s classic song as its narration. It’ll blow your mind.
Not all fan videos use a songs lyrics to tell their story. For example, in this gorgeous fan video by lolilie, she does a remarkable job of using choice cuts of dialogue from the movie coupled with an evocative piece of orchestral music by Philip Glass (from the movie “The Hours”) to build to an emotional crescendo. Quite simply, this is a brilliant piece of work. I was in tears before it was over. Simply stunning.
WARNING: If you haven’t watched Series 2, don’t watch this because it’s one big spoiler.
WARNING: If you have watched Series 2, have a full box of tissues handy because you’ll be a mess by the time it’s over.
Sherlock fandom is producing an astonishing amount of brilliant pieces of art – videos, fiction, drawings, paintings, manips, gifs, etc. This video is a flawless example of the heights in which this fandom is capable of attaining.
One of my all-time favorite on screen couples is Zoe and Wash from Firefly. They look like an unlikely couple, but when they’re together there’s a magic that’s undeniable. This fan video is a lovely little tribute to them.
This is an astonishing fan video. Even if Stargate Atlantis isn’t a show you’ve followed, trust me when I tell you that this is one fan video that you need to watch. It’s quite simply sublime. (Vidders notes: “Since the day John left him, Rodney hasn’t moved.” Made: June 2007.)
