Haven't done recs in a while, so I thought I'd fix that.

Onyx, by [livejournal.com profile] balistik94

Multifandom. A great tribute to black characters in movies, such as Storm from X-Men, Barret from FFVII/Advent Children and Morpheus from the Matrix-movies. Slick and stylish.

Ladies Night, by [livejournal.com profile] counteragent

Another multifandom vid, this time with focus on various female characters from different shows/movies, from Buffy to Doctor Quinn, Medicine Woman. Professional competence is sexy, as vidder's own description goes. Fun and feel-good.

Sorry, by [livejournal.com profile] keewick

Smallville, Lana-centric. Lana has a few words to say to Clark and Lex. Fantastic character study for a character who gets too much too easily in fandom's eyes, though it honestly isn't so. Stargate Atlantis-fans might also like 32 from the same post, which is a lovely vid about Teyla.

I have a feeling this vid has been recced just about everywhere already, but I guess one more won't hurt. Improper Dancing, by [livejournal.com profile] marycrawford is a fun, feel-good vid with a little slash in it. Fandoms used in this one are plentiful, but just for examples it has popular fandoms like Farscape, Star Wars, Xena: Warrior Princess and Due South, as well as lesser known fandoms such as Indiana Jones, The Sting and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

And now, something more sentimental: Darkwing Duck used to be one of my favorite shows when I was a kid, and the wonderful relationship between Darkwing and Gosalyn was just one of the things I loved about it. You Are Loved (Don't Give Up), by Villaness, is a lovely vid about Darkwing and Gosalyn, the good times and the bad. I suppose I should be cringing at the Josh Groban-song, and spitting hatred at a Disney-show. Well, I'm not going to. Softie at the heart and all.

I'm pretty sure that if I ever got bitten by a vid making bug for real, I would ditch writing altogether and never look back. Because I would be dying to reach goodness like this:

Filthy Mind, by [livejournal.com profile] sol_se

It's stream of consciousness in vid form, bringing together several fandoms (Battlestar Galactica, Dexter and Smallville just for starters) in this stunning visual fest. According to the vidder it's a combination of free association (what one character does brings another in mind) and pulsing lights of a club, and it's fantastic. It ranges from hard to impossible to do something like this in fic, and I haven't seen many things like this in vid world either. It's a must watch.

And now, some Farscape: John, John/Scorpius )

Bonus: Vid for the Femslash OTP )
