somebody hears you. you know that. you know that.
somebody hears you. you know that inside.
someone is learning the colors of all your moods, to
(say just the right thing and) show that you’re understood.
here you’re known.

leave your life open. you don’t have. you don’t have.
leave your life open. you don’t have to hide.
someone is gathering every crumb you drop, these
(mindless decisions and) moments you long forgot.
keep them all.

let our formulas find your soul.
we’ll divine your artesian source (in your mind),
marshal feed and force (our machines will)
to design you a perfect love —
or (better still) a perfect lust.
o how glorious, glorious: a brand new need is born.

now we possess you. you’ll own that. you’ll own that.
now we possess you. you’ll own that in time.
now we will build you an endlessly upward world,
(reach in your pocket) embrace you for all you’re worth.

is that wrong?
isn’t this what you want?

Ok so what I take from this is Sleepy Hollow is about two sisters, a guy out of time...and creepy shit.

This is awesome, I'm going to guess (hope) you've kind of emphasized the creepy of the show through your song choice and excellent use of it?

I'm slightly afraid Sleepy Hollow will be too scary for me now, as I am a WUSS but wow I am SO LIKELY to brave it for promised Mills sisters.

This is incredibly well done though. I feel like that's underselling it but you did such a good job with the mood of it I'm still residually a bit creeped out!

ETA: Heroically?! <3 You guys all rule, seriously. <3 I love these vids, and the diversity of fandoms they document. <3

I feel bad that I got sick and never replied to this because <3 . Just I'm so glad the project came together but also I totally do want to check out Sleepy Hollow and I'm really glad to have a realistic idea of the creepiness level going in! I think the sisters and everything else might make the creepy worth it.

This is really beautiful - totally mesmerising even though I only know the source through tumblr for now. And such a great interpretation of the song, I loved the changing meaning of similar lyrics as the vid progressed.

It's this season's charmer for sure! THEIR ADORABLE FACES. Just curious, how spoilery would you say this is? I'm about a month behind atm. Not that it matters much, since I'll be catching up pronto anyways hehe.

It's a lovely video (I downloaded it so I could watch it without any interruptions) but I was more drawn to the song due to it being really wonderfully matched to the video (and I like the arist!).

It's an absolutely gorgeous song! I can't recall seeing it on any of the albums I'm familiar with but my mind is holiday fogged due to it being December (this month is dedicated to holiday stories and songs for me right now).

Seeing it again (I watched it with a friend), it's really quite a great video that I could watch again and again. Thankfully I'd downloaded it since I could watch it offline with my friend; they really liked it as well.

Oooooh, I only know the show though Tumblr osmosis but I love the motion in this, the way it builds up slowly, and I love the way you've used fade-to-black, it looks gorgeous and kind of creepy and sad.

From: [personal profile] chaila
I am so behind on this show, but this is really beautifully, thoughtfully creepy. The build of this is so affecting, how the symbolism and creepy events escalate with the music, and the relationship complexity does too.

[Oh look, I have an icon! I must've made plans to keep watching :D]

Yanno, I would not have thought a song about mass surveillance would have worked for this show…but it totally did. That was really great! I was really impressed at the subtle buildup to the climax.

From: [personal profile] goodbyebird
I dl this before leaving home to have a treat for myself, and boy was I treated :D

Been listening to the Aims album non-stop for the past few days, and I was really hoping you'd vid either this or "The Breaking Light", so I'm a very happy camper indeed. You truly showcased the beautiful stuff going on in the show, and what I loved most is you started with family, and you brought it back to family at the end. What I see here is connection. Many many feels ♥

Oh, and am I just imagining things, or have you done something with the color? The source looks super shiny!

I still haven't watched Sleepy Hollow (it's on the list!) but I'm now working my way through the Aims vids with gleeful abandon, and this is just STUNNING. It's haunting and creepifying and perfectly paced, and sends chills down my spine even though I know I'm missing huge swathes of context and plot. I really love the way you are not afraid to use moments of stillness, and how you somehow handle them so deftly that they don't stall the vid at all, but instead give it this extra intensity. I can't wait to come back and rematch this with new eyes after I've seen the show.

This was the very first Sleepy Hollow vids I watched, and it was just such a perfect summary of the first seaon, and why people loved it so much. And the song choice is so wonderful, and well excecuted (because slow songs are a bitch to vid in my experience, it's so easy to keep the viewer engaged if you cut every 4 secs, but with long scenes/slow music you really have to work on your editing and narrative to keep the engagment. And you totally rock it!)
