A MASS EFFECT VID AT VIDUKON. :D This makes me so happy. One of my top 5 favourite fandoms since I finished the series last month and I've been catching up on all the ME fan vids - the really good ones are rare, I find, but this is definitely one of them. I love the way you incorporated the various Shepards.

I really enjoyed watching this! Had absolutely no idea what's happening but I loved the editing and how crisply you put it together, I was absolutely fascinated by what was going on. I must have pretty much missed all of the plot points, but still, I loved that sense of parallel universes and events playing out the same way regardless of the specifics of the protagonist. I thought it was very cool. :)

I cannot breathe right now. Cannot. Breathe.

Just... capturing the multiversal nature of Mass Effect. You don't even start from the same place in every game, but every choice you make leads you to the same inevitable fate.

She/he/I/you make a final choice in a cycle predicated on the destruction of choice.

The switching between Shepards of all varieties, the flashing between Ashleys and Kaidans, the heartbreaking sacrifice of Thane or Major Kirrahe. Mordin being assassinated or sacrificing himself.

Ugh. So much emotion. I love this. Thank you for making it.

Breath taking...!!!

Lovely how you managed to include all the various decisions made over the course of the games and show how they still lead to the very same end.

chaila: Diana SWORDFIGHTING in a BALLGOWN. (luther - john ledge)
From: [personal profile] chaila
This is so gorgeous, just an amazing concept beautifully executed. The epicness is everywhere, and the switching back and forth between different characters is such a brilliant idea and just visually works so well. The sense of choices leading to different stories and characters, weaving in and around each other, is really great, and makes this seem like a really interesting meditation on being the person in charge of the story. This really feels like a vid about gaming and fandom, and how being the person making the choices controls the story, and knowing how other choices spin the story off in different directions makes it all richer.

This is fantastic – I have to watch it a bunch more times now because there's so much detail, and even just watching a second time I noticed so many more (heartbreaking!) juxtapositions.

Now I'm going to go hide in the corner being all emotional about Mass Effect again ...

I have maybe mentioned to you once or twice how much I love this vid, right? ;D

It's just absolutely gorgeous on so many levels! And I have to play all the games and then come back and watch it a whole bunch more times...

This vid is just SO GOOD. I don't think I can properly express that to you, even via the very expressive medium of CAPSLOCK.


I am not, and never have been a gamer. I know NOTHING about Mass Effect (or rather - knew nothing. I may have just spent half an hour googling, after my 3rd viewing of this vid...I feel more clued up now) and this vid still gives me ALL THE FEELINGS! It's just so epic and so well cut and the blurring in and out between the different versions of the characters is amazing. Even to someone who has never played this game, it manages to completely sweep the viewer up in the story, it is totally accessible, and gives the wonderful feeling of an adventure playing out across many parallel worlds....

Have I mentioned that it's really good?

This is amazing. SO GOOD. So meta. Such great clip choices. And the music. Oh man. The vid itself could've been gory, but letting the music do that work for you, letting it be us and Shepard at once...SO GOOD. I LOVE IT A LOT.

I came back because I wanted to leave better feedback, but I still am nothing but *handshandshands* Mass Effect 1 was my first video game (a few years back now) and I was blown away by it. This vid just does such a fantastic job showing what it feels like. I just. *hands*

cyborganize: (Cyborg's Sex Manual)
From: [personal profile] cyborganize
aaaaaaah metasplosion! I wish so many of the plot subtleties didn't go over my head -- I gather this references the controversial ME3 ending? but what is absolutely clear and striking is what another commenter called the multiverse -- the experience of different first-person characters existing within identical stories. the visual gesture you used to toggle between Shepards is so distinct and so unique to video game footage! superb pacing with the buildup to the epic polysexual makeout scene, omg. I would definitely screen this if I ever need an example for teaching video games.

p.s. is there no masterlist of VidUKon premieres anywhere? [community profile] vidukon_cardiff?

Having just watched this for about the eleven billionth time since the con, this is still really awesome, I am utterly blown away by your elegant editing, and also so many feelings.

This is the best mass effect vid I've ever seen, and possibly the best game vid. Such beautiful, smooth, seamless editing, great song choice, and a wonderful idea perfectly executed. Such a pleasure to watch.

I admit, I teared up!

From: [personal profile] thirdblindmouse
I saw this a few months ago with [personal profile] laura47. I've never played Mass Effect so at first all I could tell for certain about what was happening was that it was epic and sad and beautifully edited, but I could tell something even more was going on with all the shifting visuals. So at the end we turned to Laura, since she's played Mass Effect, and we found her flailing and unable to produce language. When she finally got her words back she explained what you were doing with the source and all the different versions of the characters, and holy shit. I am so impressed.

I don't have much to say that hasn't been said already, but thank you for this. I tear up every time I watch it, and it just summarizes my feels about MY Sheppard, and her journey. Thank you.

Gahhh. The details! I just can't believe how much you for into every second of every frame. I need to reward this a hundred times.

I'll be reading your mass effect recs after. :p

I just watched this again after finishing the first Mass Effect game and it remains *stunning*. I'm honestly overwhelmed. I want to make my own ME vids, but... man, I don't know if I could ever make anything that's as good as what you've done in this fandom.

I keep watching this over and over (and forcing my friends to watch it lol) because it is *so fucking gorgeous* and centers Femshep and her epic awesomeness as a character, in all her variations. Also, your vidding skills are freaking midnblowing!

Thank you for working in this fandom!
