Oh my God.

I'm in tears. IN TEARS. That was just...perfect. The song choice, the editing, just...okay, I'll come back later and leave a better response. I'm just...whoa. THANK YOU. So much.

Here via legoline's recommendation.

Fantastic vid that captures all the scenes I so fondly remember and makes me feel all the feelings again only compressed into four minutes. Great job. Thank you. :)

So< after I watched this I had to leave the room and lie in the floor for a moment. It's like you distilled all of the emotional impact of the film into approximately four and a half beautiful minutes. <3

So. I had hoped I'd be more coherent by now but alas, I'm not. So dear fabulous vidder person, let me show you the ways I love this video instead, mmmkays? Because, seriously. You have no idea how much I love this film and you've captured it so beautifully.

I love the nostalgic, wistful tone of this. I love the song you used which transports exactly that feeling. (I've toyed with the idea of vidding the film myself a few times but could never find a good song. This one? Is bloody perfect.) I love the friendship in this, particularly Chris's and Gordie's; I love the way you address Gordie's problems with his family and the death of his brother, and how seeing the dead child sort of...helps him to cope. I love the idea of the "dream", of adventure and of going somewhere, the idea of going on a quest, really. I love how this is sort of their last big adventure as kids before they move on. I love all the little things you included, like the car race and Gordie seeing the deer. I love the bit where Gordie's dad scowls at him followed by the bit of Gordie telling the other ones stories and making them laugh.

You tie the music and clips so wonderfully in this beautiful vid about friendship and childhood, about dreams and loss and really, thank you. This is all I could have ever asked of a Stand By Me vid, and more.

*hugs*

Hurst so good. For the characters. For their actors. For all my childhood friends who are no longer here.

Awwwww. You slayed me in a way I didn't think I would be beautifully hurt. The crying blonde boy first made me cry and then at the end with the text just broke my heart. You REALLY got to what friendship when you're a kid (and even after) means and how special it is and all the great memories of just hanging out together. This resonated with me really strongly, I love it.
