Also premiering vid Hold on Tight

Here's the other premiering vid from Vividcon. I have wanted to vid Ratatouille since I first saw it, but I could never find a song for it. One day last winter I was driving along and Hold on Tight came on the radio, and I was all, "That's it! That's the song!" Which was also, unfortunately, not long before Charmax's wonderful Wall*E vid came out, also to an Electric Light Orchestra song, Mr. Blue Sky, and Talitha's lovely Up vid for Fireflies came out. The last thing I wanted to do was make a vid that seemed like I was ripping off two people whose talents I greatly admire, so I sat on it. And sat on it. Then the VVC crap started flying, and I felt like the only thing I could motivate myself to do within the timeframe was something sweet, simple, and that would make me feel happy.

Now if I could just find the right song for the Incredibles, Iron Giant, and Lilo and Stitch vids I would love to someday make. ;-)

I loved this vid so much! I've never been able to get through the movie itself, but the vid was completely adorable. We were walking to dinner talking about it. So cute. :D

Oh, awesome! I kind of felt like it was so lame, I was almost afraid to send it in, but I'm glad that you thought it was cute!! Yay.

Yay! This is beyond adorable. Dave and I love the song choice. But I wanted to let you know that I had to watch it streaming, because the download link isn't working.

Yeah, I'm a coding idiot -- it's fixed now and thank you for letting me know. I will probably bring a dvd with them on it tomorrow -- I haven't yet checked it out on the telly.

Yaaayyyy, I'm glad you thought so, and thank you for telling me! It was so hard not to be there this year.

So I...kind of hate ELO. And that I was able to largely ignore that and enjoy the vid is, hopefully recognizable as a big compliment to the fantastic editing and your ability to make the upbeat tempo and mood really work.

This is also the first vid for non-anime animation I've come across. That's a pleasant surprise right there.

Hah! OK, you're definitely the first person I've met who actively hates ELO! But I'm really glad I could overcome that and provide something that you enjoyed anyway!

Seriously? I...Wow. You have no idea how much that surprises me--I'm completely shocked at seeing comments from people about how much they love ELO! The Internets are a very strange place.

This was so adorable! I haven't seen the movie but by the end of it I was so touched by the little rat! :D

Thank you!! I can't believe I missed you this year -- when I found out you were there but I was not, I was crushed. But I'm so glad that you are still involved, and that you haven't completely disappeared -- it would be such a loss if you did.

Wow, LJ did not send me this comment, and I'd had no idea it was here -- I'm so sorry to be so rude and not respond. THank you so much for the lovely comment -- I'm really amazed that this was the little vid that could, and apparently did, work for a lot of people and made them smile!
