Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] calicokat for the vid song and concept. Many thanks to [personal profile] par_avion for lending space and to [personal profile] jic for advice and support. Feedback is always appreciated.







If you can't see the embed, the link is here on imeem.

And if you haven't seen the new movie, I heartily recommend it. Best movie that I've seen since... Serenity, probably.

ohmygoshwhee! I was just lamenting to one of my friends today that it will probably be a while before vids start appearing for the movie and then I get home and find you have posted this. :D

The whole thing is fantastic, but the last minute especially is golden. What great momentum. <3

I got here through some rather complex set of links, but I just wanted to say that ST:Reboot/Pop music is my new OTP.

Well done. (He totally IS.)

He so is, you've convinced me (and I haven't even seen the movie but now I want to). Excellent concept executed with verve. With pizzaz!

I think you have him pegged. *g*

So much fun! I loved the those that can hang with me, and those that I scare clips that you used - they were perfect.

Dang it, I just left a comment and didn't realize i wasn't logged in! You can delete it.

Anyway, I couldn't remember if I'd left a comment for this yet, but I loved it SO MUCH and think I've watched it 500 times. *flails* This vid has multiple levels of awesome and I'm so glad you made it!

Eeeeee! This is great! Fun song choice that to me wasn't the slightest bit ridiculous. Nice musicality, especially in the battle scenes.

I agree. I wish I could see them both again for the first time!

This is my absolute favorite right now.

Words can not express how much I adore this video. Besides the fact that the song is contagious (and I NEVER thought I would say that about a Britney Spears song), I just think you did an excellent job with the story that you told.

Brava!

ETA: I had to rec it in my journal as well. Fabulous!

I just downloaded this today and have seriously watched it a dozen times already. Brilliant matching of clips to the lyrics--I keep noticing new bits of cleverness all the time. Also, I adore this characterization of Kirk as someone whose true greatness is not his brilliance or suicidal recklessness daring, but his ability to use his crew to the best of their abilities and to inspire them to reach their fullest potential.

I just realized I failed to comment on this! I've watched it about 500 kajillion times and pimped it all around and actually bought a freaking Britney Spears song on iTunes because of it, so it really deserves a comment.

It's AWESOME. Seriously, seriously awesome. Your timing and your clip choice are fantastic. There's a real narrative arc to it, which to me is the mark of a great vid (or, really, of a vid worth watching; I'm not a big vid person, and I tend to stop at :30 if I can't tell what's going on).

So, yeah: excellent, excellent work.

(Also, the Imeem link is dead, in case you aren't aware.)

god DAMN I love this vid. I have watched it a scary number of times -- it was a highlight of the Nearly New show at VVC, and I'm glad it was there, since I hadn't heard of it before.

Anyway -- fabulous job!

Hi. I switched computers yesterday, and I'm going through all my favorite vids and leaving comments on them. This vid is so awesome, Kirk thinks it's all about him, and over the course of the movie&vid he convinces everyone to agree with him. I really enjoyed the parallels in the first and last thirds, such as the shots of Kirk in front of all the cadets, the shots look the same but have opposite meanings. I also love how the camrip and the crowd noise at the beginning of the vid give it a bootleg feel, which is so fitting for Kirk.
