Festivids

I've only had time to watch the two vids made for me, but they were both great! They're actually a fantastic example of how the same subject can depicted in multiple ways, because I got two Lina Lamont (Singin in the Rain) character study vids and I'm very happy with both of them!

Diva is kinda of a great linear deconstruction of Lina -- it starts with the glamour and what she wants you to believe about her (how amazing she is) and then the song gets into how she's manipulating the world in order to get what she wants ("diva is a female version of a hustler" is used very well).

Primadonna more stays inside Lina's vision of reality the whole time, and is more folded together rather than linear. The song used in this one, which I'd never heard before, is definitely a great one for Lina, and there's some great moments where you can feel sympathy for Lina's ambitions and needs.

Both vids are gorgeous, and I'm so thrilled that they now exist! I love Singin in the Rain and I've always enjoyed Lina's character. Thank you, anon vidders! ♥
