Level Up - Sleepy Hollow fanvid from kaydee falls on Vimeo.

so come out.
you have been waiting long enough.
you’re done with all the talk talk talk with nothing on the table.
it’s time to come on out.
there will be no sign from above.
you’ll only hear the knock knock knock of your own heart as signal.

if you are afraid, come out.
if you are awake, come out.
come out and level up.

begin again.
dynamite the dam on the flow.
your body feels the tock tock tock of time as it hammers.
lord we are all cinders
from a fire burning long ago,
but here it is the knock knock knock of your own heart that matters.

if you are afraid, come forth.
if you are alone, come forth now.
everybody here has loved and lost,
so level up and love again.

call it any name you need.
call it your 2.0, your rebirth, whatever –
so long as you can feel it all,
so long as all your doors are flung wide.
call it your day #1 in the rest of forever.

if you are afraid, give more.
if you are alive, give more now.
everybody here has seams and scars.
so what. level up.

let your faith die.
bring your wonder.
yes, you are only one.
no, it is not enough
but if you lift your eyes, I am your brother.
and this is all we need.
and this is where we start.
this is the day we greet.
this is the day, no other.

Ohhhh, this is beautiful! It's everything I love about Abbie and her compatriots and the way she rises to every challenge. You've conveyed so much of her strength here.

Man that is a gorgeous, wonderful vid. It strikes a wonderful tone and really captures that as well as being a creepy show about the apocalypse, it's about Abbie learning that it's okay to be who she is, that who she is is a brave, beautiful person. To indulge in an overly romantic metaphor, it reminds me of her smile. Everything's serious and sober, and then suddenly, there's this most amazing, uplifting grin.

I was drawn in by the song (I downloaded it so I could watch it without interruption). It's a great song.

And I'd forgotten just how kickass Abbie is.

This is fantastic! What a good look at Abbie; you capture her determination in the face of chaos and confusion so well.

Oh, that was *excellent*, really awesome. Abbie in all her glory, courageous, terrified, determined, unbelieving and believing, tough as nails, full of emotion....

Finally got around to watching this, it's gorgeous! I don't know the show really but I feel like I have a good sense of Abbie from this vid, and I think I love her. <3 Loved the build-up and the timings, it looks amazing!

This is so beautiful and affecting, and I haven't even seen Sleepy Hollow yet! I've no idea how you manage to get me to have feelings about a character and relationships I know nothing about, but you REALLY DO. Maybe it's the way the pacing flows? You are really good at pacing. Anyway,iIt if wasn't already right at the top of my list of Shows To Watch When I Have Time, this vid would put it there. - this is such a fabulous character study, I can't wait to meet Abbie.

Someone in the wilds of the internet linked me to this on vimeo, and then MERE HOURS LATER once I flipped out about it on Twitter, someone else pointed me here. So: I love this! I've watched it like three times now. Like in the past hour. It's lovely, and a great song choice for Abbie, and gorgeously cut.

AN ABBIE MILLS VID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, this is so lovely! The song is a great fit, and I love how you highlight Abbie's courage and perseverance in the face of all that terrifies her. I did want more Jenny--those parts hit me hardest--but understand the limitation of talking faces. And I'm amazed at how much of a story you were able to tell with the limited footage from one season.
