Gorgeous. One of my favorite things about this movie is that it features friendships of all kinds, between people who have things in common, and not, but those friendships are real and true, and important to Steve especially. This vid showcases that beautifully.

Thank you! I know, it's really rare to have a movie where the friendships are all different and yet equally weighted, where you can see how they play into the main character's development. And it's even rarer, I think, to find a song where you can showcase that. I love these characters so fucking much.

While it may have been a PITA to remaster, the cleaner visuals do make a difference--for all the explosions, there's a lot of subtle stuff going on, too!

It's interesting, too, in that the faces are farther away now -- with the correct aspect ratio, they're farther back in the frame, so I wonder if that changes the level of intimacy. It's always hard to tell when you're making the vid.

This movie, IDEK. It's just so full of amazing stuff.

Hmmmm...that's hard to say, I think. I, personally, don't find it less intimate because there's a more direct impact when it's not out of focus--the blur can force an emotional distance, too, even if it's closer up.

I think, if it didn't have the superhero stuff, critics would have labeled it as a top political thriller. Which is a very interesting thing for a "comic book movie."

Aw, thank you! Yeah, I've never made a vid like that before, and I couldn't stand the thought of that being the only file there was to look at.

You're not invisible. And all your vids are gorgeous. This one is no exception. No one else matches the pics and cuts to the music quite as well as you do.
