I'm slowly getting back to comments now the reveal is over and done with. I just wanted to say how much your comment meant to me. I loved editing Wall-E's big heart as well as his clumsiness so I do have a particular soft spot for the instrumental section that showcases that to its fullest.

Thank you once again for the awesome praise.

Holy Mackerel! Your sense of movement BLOWS ME AWAY. *_*

Thank you! The film was a gift in that respect, so much to play with which allowed me to be a lot more indulgent with the movement than I think I ever could be with live action.

Dear Festividder who made this vid for me. I don't even know where to begin. When I put this fandom on my wishlist, I had NO IDEA that the result could be even more awesome than the movie itself! This is more than I ever expected (and probably also more than I deserve...) but let me just say - I had an awesomely crappy week and even crappier day today and just by watching that video, you made me the happiest person on Earth. It was just what I needed. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart!

I just wanted to add this to my comment.

I sent a link to my brother with the instructions to let my 4-year old nephew watch this. He loves Wall-E to death. I got a call from him this afternoon and all I could hear over the phone was "WALL-EEEEEE! Auntie, it's Wall-EEEEEEEE! You sent me Wall-E!!!!" You just made a 4-year old boy the happiest kid in the world!

Awwww, that was wonderful! I love how you changed the meaning of 'Mr. Blue Sky' throughout, and the last couple of shots were just gorgeous. Love it!

Thanks very much. I do love that moment when the robots finally hold hands, I just had to use it.

Wow, this is absolutely ADORABLE! I especially love the montage at the end to the choral part. Perfect, BRAVO!
charmax
Feb. 4th, 2010 07:35 am (UTC)
The choral part is such a distinctive change in the song I had to try to match that with the visuals, I'm glad you liked it. Thank you!

Thanks very much, glad you liked the parallels.

Amazing song choice, and I really loved the way you integrated the stories, which improved upon the segregated narrative of the original movie in my opinion.

Loved it!

Awww, awesome! Look at all the color, and the motion, and the Earth/ship and day/night and ship/space and present/past contrasts and the slow build and WALL-E having fits over categorization and getting stuck behind the chairs and the electronic chorus and the red and green for the choral bits and the captain's triumphant rise and just, everything. Yay.

Thanks for pointing out your favourite parts. I love the fact that the Captain and Wall-E get to triumph in the end. I'm a sucker for a happy ending.

Unbelievably charming and adorable with amaaaaaaaazing internal movement. I was grinning like a fool for the whole gorgeous, sweet, pitch-perfect vid.

Oh, that was just lovely. I love the parallels between Wall-E and the Captain, and the way they both grow to be heroes. Awesome awesome stuff. :)
charmax

Thank you so much. The parallel arcs of the Captain and Wall-E were so interesting to me. They're both unlikely heroes who end up saving the world. It's hard not to love that.

So unfair! It made me tear up and ruined my makeup just when I'm heading out. Somehow I was expecting this to be the cutest thing to ever cute, but I didn't expect it to be so clever and insightful and three levels of meta and seven layers of awesome and to puck a punch next to the d'awww... Thank you, festividder!

It's good to know you got so much out of it and weren't totally blinded by the cute and found something a bit deeper too. I always enjoy finding that a vid works on different levels. Thank you so much for the lovely comment.

OMG. This is just so very very awesome. This is the first of the festivids I've seen besides ones I beta'd, and I just am blown away. SO MUCH JOY. YOu captured everything I love about the movie, and everything I love about the song, and put them together into one big bundle of LOVE.

This vid is awesome! Wall-E is adorable on its own but you just bring out its strengths and make a fantastic vid! Seriously, I just feel like dancing to it and I shall repeat everyone and say it's got "a great sense movement." It really does! And I love the parallels between life on the ship and life on Earth. It's just awesome. <3

Thank you so much for the kind words. Very glad to hear what you like about the vid. :D
