Vertigo by bradcpu
House as a sort of Xbox game trailer? That shouldn’t work should it? And yet it does. Perfectly! I absolutely love it when vids surprise me like that. I don’t really know where to start but it is just so awesome. You don’t have to know House to love it because it is visually stunning but there is enough in there to reward people who know the context. Motion, Motion, Motion it’s all about the motion except it isn’t because there is a decent overview of season 2 in there too. It flies by in a whirl of images all of which compliment the next.

I haven’t seen Dexter and it’s not really the sort of show I’d ever be into but I absolutely love this vid. It manages to make serial killer/sociopaths seem quite sympathetic! I came to the vid knowing next to nothing and yet was able to follow the plot with ease and that’s all credit to the vidder. It’s gross and yet strangely beautiful and the song really pulls the narrative along, it feels like the song could only have been made for Dexter. It should make everyone want to watch this show.
One Of A Kind by obsessive24
That song is just sooooo Sylar. It’s an inspired choice. This vid really gets inside the head of Sylar and somehow humanises him for me. “I am one” - he may not be a hero in the conventional sense but he does have superpowers which to his twisted way of thinking makes him one of the heroes but also far superior than the rest of them, “one of a kind”. It’s very easy to follow and also has some great subtle moments where the visuals match specific sounds in the audio, the toaster melting springs to mind and the cockroach at the beginning like a clocks springs unwinding. It’s all very classy and really brings Sylar to life for me whereas in the show I didn’t quite get him. This really puts flesh on the bones and I now see him in a slightly different light.

Show: BSG Lee
I should state from the start that I cannot abide Lee Adama. I care not one iota for him in the show. That’s why I give this vid such credit because actually here, I kind of do give a damn. It’s an angsty song for an angsty character and it sucked me in from the start. There’s some great motion and some fast cutting that is consistently good throughout. It starts with the first sound of the intro and carries right through to the jump cut/single frame fireball crashes at the end. It’s all so very shiny it’s hard to pick out individual examples.
