A Funny Thing Happened Last Night
...and by "funny thing" I mean "tragicomedy of the highest order".

I am posting vids again! Long story short, I've been sitting on about six completed vids that I've had trouble posting, so I decided to submit two of them to VividCon as a way to force myself to start showing my work to other people again. Also this was the first vid concept I ever had back in 2009, before I even started vidding, and it's been done for a couple of years now so it is seriously time to move on. It's also posted over on my tumblr!

Source: The Lord of the Rings
Song: Woman King by Iron & Wine
Summary: Arwen, Eowyn, Galadriel; "your bones will blossom into stars. your blood is wine and you are clothed in light" - Natasza Stark

Major thanks to [identity profile] vi0lace.livejournal.com and [identity profile] sweetestdrain.livejournal.com for helping me pick vids to submit, and for being really kind and encouraging!

I loved this while watching on the livestream and am really glad you posted it! I loved the pace and flow of the editing, especially how you transition between characters with the gorgeous scenic shots.

Thank you so so much! This was the first vid idea I ever had (way before I started vidding), so it had a long while to float around in my head before I made it. I'm so glad you like it! ♥

Realised I never commented in reply--this was truly fantastic, wonderful work and match of source to song! It was all of what I loved about LOTR.

Ahh, thank you! I was a little worried about the number of other (very excellent) vids that use this song, but this concept would not leave me alone and I'm honestly really proud of how it turned out. I'm so happy you enjoyed it! ♥

I don't know this source at all, but this is really beautiful! The mix of faces and scenery and objects just flows so well.

shallowness: Five panels featuring pictures of different female characters based on my interests at the time. (shallowness heroines)
Loved the focus on these women and their potential. Very good matching of lyrics to the character, and then the final part, particularly showing more moments of Arwen and Eowyn's strengths, made the vid soar.

Ahh, thank you so much! I'm so glad the lyrics worked for you, and the ending's probably what I'm most proud of, so I'm really excited that you enjoyed it! ♥

starlady: Galadriel in Caras Galadhon, with an ornate letter &quot;G&quot; (galadriel is a G)
That was great--I loved all the parallelisms and how you really brought out each of their strengths.
