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.
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.
Another brilliant Sherlock fan video that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster. Marvelous choice of song, terrific video and sound editing and superb clip selection make this one of the best I’ve seen… and Sherlock fandom has inspired an amazing amount of fannish talent.
MV means it’s all about the music and pictures… and Grimm is a lush looking series with marvelous location work so as you can guess this fan video is filled with gorgeous imagery. I have a thing for music videos that use instrumental music and it’s used to great effect here. I should warn you, however, that if you can’t deal with bees or rats then this isn’t the video you’re looking for. If you can, you’ll be sucked right in and wondering why you haven’t been watching this little NBC series. (The three best episodes, in my opinion, are “Danse Macabre”, “Organ Grinder” and “Tarantella”.)
