I love Festivids - it’s one of my favorite fannish things of the year because everyone is on equal footing before reveals. Each vid you watch could be a real gem and without the vidder's name attached you go into it with no pre-conceptions. I also love finding new movies and shows through vids. My Netflix queue fills up more than usual after Festivids

[personal profile] rhoboat. I love her vids and was a little apprehensive that she wouldn't like this, but she claims I made her giggle profusely, which makes me very happy. I wish I had some great story about why I chose Sapphire Bullets of Love by They Might Be Giants for the vid, but I just don’t remember the thought process that led up to it.

It was important to me to show the constant tension between Colonel Montoya and Doctor Helm. I knew I wanted to end with Montoya giving Helm his dagger and Helm accepting it. It seemed to be both phallic and submissive.

I decided to make a treat, if possible, this year and I had recently rewatched The Grapes of Wrath so decided on making a treat for the only person requesting a vid for that movie, [personal profile] isis. At first I planned on using one of Woody Guthrie's dust bowl ballads for this vid, but Who Will Comfort Me by Melody Gardot came up on a Pandora playlist and I knew I had to focus on Ma Joad, Jane Darwell's Oscar winning performance as the woman who holds her family together no matter what is so wonderful. I love this vid and it still makes me tear up at certain points.
