Slightly belated, but in my defence, my mother came to stay, and then British politics has been kind of...on fire. Which, obv decide for yourselves, but for myself, for many reasons, I made a good vid for right now.

Song: Read All About it, Pt III, Emeli Sandé
Fandom: Pride (2014), Rent (2005)
Length: 04:43
Size: 168MB
Download: HERE
Crosspost: On Tumblr
Summary: "There's no need to be afraid, I will sing with you, my friend."
Content notes: None really, just a note along the lines of the content of both films.
Notes: Thank you to [personal profile] carawj and [personal profile] cosmic_llin for cheerleading as ever, and beta-ing. Also thank you to [personal profile] settiai for a lovely HQ version of Rent when I was struggling to find one, and [personal profile] anoel for cheerleading and a quick beta!!

Also I was almost not going to make a Premiere this year, I'd been too busy with the last term at Irreverent Dance, but I found myself so sad and angry about that, and I'd had this idea for a while, it suddenly felt like what I wanted to do with my feelings. For context, I know this song through ID, it featured in the showcase before I found them, and one of my favourite things I've ever danced was to another song by the same artist.

And then Orlando happened while we were there, the day after, and then British politics has been...quite so on fire, and this is the answer I have, really.

Well, that was wonderful. The last 2 minutes were kind of hard for me to watch because of my tears. <3

This is so good and so powerful. I love how many visual and thematic parallels you've drawn out, and it all flows so beautifully. I particularly love the clip choice on "you've got the words to change a nation". ♥

God, that was beautiful. I've been saving this until I finally saw Pride, and just... It's a perfect pairing of sources, and beautiful editing, and it's feelings all the way down.

...and I've been rewatching it again this week, because reasons, and I can't get through it without sobbing, but it's the good kind of sobbing, the kind of sobbing I've been needing. Thank you for making this and sharing it.

(Is there a tumblr post for it?)

Someone recommended this to me, and she was right - it's exactly what I needed to see right now. Beautifully both technically and emotionally.

This is SO GOOD. I'm just seeing it now thanks to the BP vid show playlist, and WOW. Also, every time I think I'm done crying I'm wrong! This is just so lovely and so very effective.
