My [community profile] wiscon_vidparty premiere!

I really, really liked Interstellar (2014). I liked it so much that I tried to make a vid about how Murph and Brand save the human race with science and courage, but also about the fact that love is the only thing stronger than death, and that love transcends the limitations of spacetime, and that a movie that relies on that truth isn't soppy at all. Hence the title, and the quote, from a book that also is powered by that principle.

I'm not sure I actually succeeded in that aim, but I really like this vid all the same. I used the IMAX Blu-Ray footage, and I really love how the vid fills the screen for so many of the space shots. One other semi-technical note: there are no unobscured shots of the black hole because on the small screen it looks too perfect to be believable.

Also, now that I've vidded my first Vienna Teng song, I feel like a Real Vidder™.

Watch the shadow lines fade away
Brother you will return
Let your lion heart cleave the waves
Brother you will return
In the breaking light

Leave the battlefield, leave her hand
Brother you will return
For we are a woven thread, find the strand
Brother you will return
In the breaking light

So listen to the darkness, listen to the patterns
Listen to the breathing sea
Listen to the colors, carry them inside you
They will bring you back to me
In the breaking light

Feel the ground beneath sweep and sway
Brother we will return
Feel the hollow dream slip away
Brother we will return
In the breaking light

So listen to the darkness, listen to the patterns
Listen to the breathing sea
Listen to the colors, carry them inside you
They will bring you back to me
Listen to the sirens, listen to the heartbeat
Listen to the turning tide
Listen to the murmurs, carry them inside you
‘til we’re on the other side
In the breaking light
In the breaking light

I loved this vid SO MUCH, and it made me want to see the movie. I am incoherent with sleep deprivation, so please forgive the lack of details. But this vid is fascinating and beautiful.

This is really lovely. I don't know the source at all (Wikipedia summary aside), but your vid conveys some things that matter.

I never actually saw this movie, so I think I'm missing a lot of events, but this was really moving anyway, and the themes of science and courage and love definitely came across! And it *looks* just gorgeous.

I only hope this movie (which you've moved to the top of my queue) is as evocative, sad, and triumphant as your lovely vid. Thanks for sharing your movie & music enthusiasms together.

Super late, but yes! The emotion in this film is so beautiful. I remember when I saw it in theaters, tearfully thinking 'this is a magical girl story as an American dude-starring science fiction film.' The way it values love. I love this movie and this vid embodies why. Partly due to the perfec song choice, wow. Beloved film that makes me cry + beloved song that makes me cry and is thematically perfect = I am submerged in peaceful, sad joy.
