O HAY FESTIVIDS

So I've failed massively at posting to my journal of late, but. But.

I got two absolutely beautiful Master and Commander vids this year in Festivids, and you should go look at them...and leave feedback for the vidders. Also a big thanks to the [community profile] festivids mods and staff for all their hard work!

Sailboats by [personal profile] bironic (assignment) is an absolutely lovely Aubrey/Maturin vid that is pretty much to the letter I wanted from a shippy (swear to god no pun intended) fanwork. Bironic has made this sweet and touching without hurting your teeth; the song choice is perfect, and if you like this ship, it's a real keeper.

Leave Her, Johnny by [personal profile] rhoboat (treat) pulls together a completely different take on the canon--the gritty reality of the naval life, good and bad. Rhoboat uses the stunning cinematography by Russell Boyd* to full advantage, which I really appreciated as it's so fucking beautiful.

Go forth, friends! And do go have a look at the rest of this year's Festivids if you get a chance--I'm going to make my way though them all soon, it's been a rough start of the month so I've not had time yet.

* Wikipedia is telling me Boyd won an Oscar for this, which I gotta say is deserved as hell. I'm still miffed there wasn't ever a second M&C.

Thanks for the recs. There have been an amazing assortment of vids, I'm rationing them like great chocolate.

OMG. Those are both beautiful. And now I want to watch that movie again and whine that they only made one. So many books... so few movies.

Be still my age of sail loving heart.

Oh, thanks for the recs! These were just lovely. I too wish madly for an M&C sequel—and, this reminds me, it's totally time for a re-watch.
