OKAY. So, [personal profile] kuwdora and I went to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at midnight when it came out because I was SO EXCITED, and I came out of the movie disappointed but also with ALL THE FEELS. Basically, I felt kind of let down with how little time the movie spent building Peter and Harry's relationship and Harry's anger towards his father/the world in general. The seeds were there, but it skated over the character development so they could squeeze the Green Goblin into this movie. I went into the movie knowing I would want to vid Harry Osborn because I'm in a Dane DeHaan phase right now, but I came out of it with a completely different idea of what I was going to make.

I had a different song chosen before I even saw the movie. It was high energy and fun and... the vid would have been very different if I used that song. By very different, I mostly mean the vid wouldn't have happened, because I just kind of sat there with my clips, the song, Final Cut, and a pouty face. I whined about it to [personal profile] kuwdora, and she was like "DARK HORSE" and I was like "NOOOO" because I absolutely despite the Katy Perry version. Then, she played this version, and I laughed and laughed and laughed and cried a little and within a few hours I had a minute and a half of the vid on the timeline. The rest of the vid took a bit longer, but the squee totally propelled me the entire way through.

I'm really happy with this vid because SQUEE and also it's a combination of a lot of things I think I do really well and things I'm still learning. This vid wouldn't exist in this form without [personal profile] kuwdora, so this is for her.

I share your obsession with Dane DeHaan. (And best frenemies.) Haven't seen this movie yet but I still loooooved the vid and thought the themes came through so clearly. I love how you navigated the character/relationship trajectory through the gorgeous action editing. The song choice is perfect.

gahhhhhh I should have been bracing myself for this onslaught on Harry feels, but somehow it's still taking me by surprise how many feels I'm having.

(Dane DeHaan, man. Did you ever end up seeing The Place Beyond The Pines? It's got some of the same emotional flavor palate as Spider-Man 2--misery and self-righteous fury capped off with a generous helping of daddy issues.)

But really, this was perfect, lovely, I'm predicting multitudinous rewatches in my future.
