Next up from Festivids: yes it's another Pacific Rim vid to the soundtrack of Tom McRae. I never claimed that my vids weren't INCREDIBLY OBVIOUS.
See, the thing is, when I saw the assignment and starting shuffling through my iTunes in search of a good song to vid, this is actual the first one that really jumped out at me as a THIS MUST BE A PACIFIC RIM VID RIGHT THE FUCK NOW. Except that it was also obviously going to be a Newt vid, and my recipient wanted a Mako&Raleigh vid, and I very badly wanted to make a Mako&Raleigh vid because I love their faces an awful lot. (It also meant that I was ODing a bit on Charlie Hunnam around mid-December, because I was simultaneously making that vid and rewatching Queer As Folk UK for my Yuletide fic. It was a confusing time.)
So once I made my assigned vid, I came back to the Newt bunny, and browsing through the Festivids requests, saw that someone else had actually requested a vid about the scientists. So that was all the excuse I needed. I really do see this one as a sort of companion piece to But I'm Hopeful Yet
-- the missing parts of the story. It also provided me with an unexpected challenge: how to vid a character who talks ALL THE FUCKING TIME. I generally try to avoid talky-face in vids, as a rule, but man, it is impossible to get clips of Newt in which he isn't running off at the mouth.Keep Your Picture Clear
