As the Challenge theme this year for this year's VVC was Memory, it seemed like the perfect time to do a vid I've been considering for quite a while. Alice Guy Blache was one of the first film directors, completing more than 1,000 short films in her career from 1896-1920. She experimented with some of the first scripted stories, with sound and with color. After moving from France to the U.S she had her own film studio in New Jersey, one of the hot spots for film production at the time. Unfortunately most of her works are lost and forgotten.

I considered using music from her era for this vid, but changed my mind when I realized just how many of the surviving works featured movement and dance.

I love the awesome teamwork in Big Hero 6, the focus on science and the female characters who were integral to the team and not just there to be someone's love interest. When it cam to vidding the movie, though, I decided to just focus on how Hiro could always count on them, how they are always there to back each other up.

I'm sad to be missing Vividcon this year, but that will probably only last until my plane takes off Monday on the way to Worldcon in London . It is a consolation to know that with the supporting membership my dvds of vids will be waiting for me when I get back. And I'll try and watch some of the livestreaming vid shows, too, if I have time this weekend.

I did make a Sleepy Hollow vid for Club Vivid. I love John Cho's poor, undead, lovesick Andy Brooks and wanted to give him his own little vid of unrequited love.

I had planned on submitting this as a nonattending premiere vid at Vividcon, but I'll just go ahead and post it now, instead.

Title: Fear and Delight
Music: The Correspondents
Lyrics after the vid.

Summary: Love and swords, always a dangerous combination.




Oh but I know you'll cause me grief
Close friends of mine are in disbelief
As they can see what's underneath
Fluttering lashes red lips and pearly white teeth...
I don't show it but I quiver whenever you come near
and I cannot decipher between the thrill and the fear,
I want to stop but I like it too much to let it stop here,
It's wrong but I want you tonight

It was of my own volition but I fell in deep
by running the distance I'd been advised to keep
I trot to the wolf as a doting sheep
it's wrong but I want you tonight

Fear and Delight,
all the way through the night
with a little derring-do I'll fall in love with you

Fear and Delight,
all the way through the night
with a little derring-do I'll fall in love with you

I'm a little boy who's going to be getting his fingers burnt
but I can see the lesson's got to got to got to be learnt
they say that boys have been destroyed but they weren't
It's wrong but I want you tonight

In any case my friends it's too late
like a moth to light like a beast to bate
and I know the black widow eat it's mate
It's wrong but I want you tonight

Fear and Delight,
all the way through the night
with a little derring-do I'll fall in love with you

Fear and Delight,
all the way through the night
with a little derring-do I'll fall in love with you

The role of evil in Duncan MacLeod's life was explored in Something Wicked/Deliverance and Archangel/Avatar/Archangel and I've been wanted to make a vid for that for quite a while. Generally I like to keep my videos somewhat lighthearted, hard to do with this subject matter. A couple of years ago I hatched the idea to use this song by Mulehead for the project and finally finished it last night.

It occurred to me this week that I hadn’t done a slideshow for HLWW9 yet, so here it is. Gave me a chance to play around with Garageband a bit more to create the soundtrack.
