Hi hi!

I fail at DW really hard still, I'm sorry. I've had lots of adventures since I updated last, and maybe I will even write about them! (I suspect it would do me good.)

However, today I am here to request help. I'm VJ-ing a Spies vidshow for Vidukon and I would love some recs from you lovely people!

Obvious things I want to include:
- Alias (but no specific vid in mind so rec away and persuade me to yours! I'm tempted to include more than one but we'll see)
- The 1960s Avengers (but I lack a HQ video so again, help!)
- [personal profile] kuwdora's Julian Bashir from DS9 I Wish I Was James Bond vid (need permission)
- An actual James Bond vid, though if one about James Bond LADIES or Judi Dench M exists I'd take that in a heartbeat
- Does anyone know a good Natasha Romanoff vid that focuses on her spy-ness? I know Bullpen is the obvious choice and awesome but hoping to go beyond the obvious.
- My heart wants to sneak in Titanium cuz Lynda Carter WW was sort of a spy but my head says that seems like cheating. ;)
- Person of Interest could, I think, fit the bill, so if you agree and have recs, go ahead.

That's off the top of my head, I'm sure there's heaps I've forgotten and don't know about so yes, that's where you come in. Recs please! :D

Oh, also, witty suggestions for an alternate title gratefully accepted. ;)

If it was me I would probably end up calling this 'I Spy', but that's not very imaginative either :-P

If spies = secret agents, there's a FAB Agent Carter vid here:

And there were two lovely Man From U.N.C.L.E. vids in this year's FV! I've never seen the show, but know it's about spies:

Ha! Feel free! Though on reflection I think it should actually be 'I, Spy' with a comma, because that works on multiple levels of pun.

Would Nikita or La Femme Nikita vids work for you? I know bop_radar and m_a_r_i_k_s have both made Nikita vids, and there are a fair number on Youtube, plus I think Lithy knows people who vidded LFN quite a lot.

I don't have any recs for either show, but would Spooks or Chuck fit?

If you don't mind short video game vids, there's quite a catchy one-minute vid about Ada Wong in Resident Evil 5 here:

There aren't many vids out there for the movie Salt, but I quite like this one: - it is a bit long, though.

There's a French movie called Les Femmed de l'ombre which is really good - I don't know if you've seen it? If you haven't, it's about four women recruited during World War II to go undercover and assassinate a German officer. There are a few vids on Youtube for it - I quite like this one, although it's a bit long; it's also quite dark in places (so's the movie):

Something that occured randomly to me earlier today - would Homeland count?

Someone on my flist (Isagel?) got a Spy Games vid from Festivids IIRC that might be good for the show? I'm not sure where the line is for spies/secret service/hacker types is, but maybe Sneakers could be fun too?

My brain seems to be operating completely in random mode today :P

Spooks! Spooks is a favourite spy show of mine. I made a vid myself, Legoline has an excellent Tom Quinn vid, possibly Rhoboat has made one, I'm not sure. And there are lots on YouTube, probably some that are focused on the great female spies of the show, but I don't know if they're any good.

The Americans! There were great The Americans vids in Festivids last year, and it is the most amazing show.

I'm sure I have more, but not right this minute.

Oh, and Bletchley Circle! Surely that fits the bill? Again there was a great vid in Festivids.

It turns out I didn't mean Rhoboat, I meant Barkley. Don't ask. /o\ Barkley made two good Spooks vids for Festivids 2011. (Spooks is a fandom I wish I could make like ten more vids for, myself. I have so much to say about it. But, ugh, so much canon to deal with.)

Just realized I complete forgot to suggest the Spy Game vid that was made for me this Festivids. Can't really get more theme appropriate than that. *g* (

Also there should be Homeland vids that work. My favourite Homeland vid is Joyo's vid about Carrie and Saul's friendship ( I'm pretty sure there must be great Carrie character studies out there. Also about a zillion Carrie/Brodie ship vids (I personally find these problematic when they are too romantic, but mileage obviously varies.)

I've not seen these movies so I miss many things, but Supremacy is at least a co-study of James Bond & M.

Turn to Stone is a faaaaabulous Bletchley Circle vid!

Again, not familiar with this fandom so I miss much, but We Will Dance could be along the lines of what you want for Black Widow? Anyway, you should see it. :)

This might be a little shippier and less spyness than you want, but this vid for Covert Affairs is a lovely little thing about touch and sight and sound.

As for Alias, I know you obvs want the ladies, but I swear sol_se made an awesome SpyDaddy vid to "Everybody Knows" but now I can't find it!

Creator for Chuck's Sarah Walker.

Who Are You, Defenders of the Universe? for The Americans.

Lilith's Song For Alias.

And a selfrec, Apr├Ęs Moi for Person of Interest's Shaw who kinda sort maybe counts as a spy.
