Stargate Atlantis: The Writer, by suzvoy {vid}
Summary: An aspiring writer lacks inspiration until he starts a part-time job at an old movie theatre...but from obsession comes jealousy.
Reccer's Notes: A clever constructed reality vid that uses clips from Stargate Atantis as well as from other roles Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett have played to tell the story of a writer who gets too caught up in his work.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith: Baby, Cool Your Jets by charmax
Summary: This is pretty much a summary of the film - action with a bit of mild sex thrown in for good measure. Basically it's a look at John and Jane's dysfunctional but hot relationship.
Reccer's Notes: It's incredible to think about the advances in vidding technology that have happened since the early 2000s and then look back at what charmax was putting out ten, fifteen years ago. The artistry, the musicality, the flow -- newer stuff has higher resolution but the craft is already there, and it's gorgeous. The thesis of this vid is really simple but it's so visually appealing! The best action vids are like dance, and the movement here is choreographed perfectly to the song.

Fanvid: MCU: Wasp Nest by gwyn
Summary: You're all humming live wires under your killing clothes.
Reccer's Notes: There are several Natasha vids that are dear to my heart, but this one I think really perfectly captures her characterization from the early MCU films -- she's a spy, and she's different things to different people, and whatever her real identity is, it's buried layers deep. (But the audience still gets glimpses of it, every now and then.)

Fanvid: Smallville: Drop Dead Gorgeous by astolat
Summary: I know my boyfriend lies, but...
Reccer's Notes: Unrelated to anything, but can you believe that Smallville is old enough to be attending high school right now. It started airing in 2001. Incredible. I'm ancient. Anyway, is there a better fandom out there for ridiculous secret identity shenanigans? I thought not. I was struggling so hard to figure out which of astolat's Clark/Lex fics I should rec for this theme and saved myself from the hell of indecisiveness by remembering she also made this gem of a vid, which manages to simultaneously showcase what a shitty, lying boyfriend/friend Clark was and make you want to dance. (Lex is also a shitty, lying boyfriend/friend. Nobody comes out of this looking good, except Chloe, who is an angel and did nothing wrong.) Don't date superheroes or supervillains, kids!

Fanvid: Chuck: Creator by talitha78
Summary: Thrill is to make it up. [An] homage to Sarah Walker, ass-kicker extraordinaire.
Reccer's Notes: Time for a blast from the past! For those who may not remember, Chuck was a show in the late 20-aughts about a hapless IT nerd who accidentally downloads a CIA/NSA database into his brain and is subsequently dragged into a world of spy capers. This vid about Sarah, one of Chuck's super-competent spy-handlers and his sometime fake girlfriend, is an old favorite of mine; it's full of phenomenal action sequences, but it also captures Sarah's occasional wistfulness and longing for something genuine really beautifully.

Fanvid: Supernatural: No Roots by trelkez
Summary: Two journeys along one road.
Reccer's Notes: I stopped watching Supernatural a long time ago and I have no context for the plot specifics this vid is presumably referencing (I guess there's an alternate universe where Mary survived instead of John? and she's a super badass hunter? cool!) but this vid is EPIC and I love it anyway. Enjoy four solid minutes of Mary being amazing and ALIVE and enjoy your bonus feelings about how much Dean is his mother's son.

Black Sails: Good Life by yunitsa
Summary: Max/Anne/Jack - no little league, we major / the proof is in the paper.
Reccer's Notes: I love how the vid takes the viewer on the character's journeys, along with the highs and lows of their relationships. Wonderful.

Agent Carter: Prove It On Me Blues by diannelamerc
They say I do it;
Ain't nobody caught me.
You sure gotta prove it on me.
Reccer's Notes: I enjoy how complete a narrative this is on it's own and how well the visuals match the story of the lyrics. It's a beautifully edited together vid. I loved it

Homestuck: Theatre of Coolty (The Movie) by Naked Bee
Summary: “Four Dirks In Search Of an Author”
“The Unbearable Lightness of Being Four Dirks”
“Dirkencrantz And Gildensdirk And Two Other Dirks Are Dead”

Reccer's Notes: Look, I don't even go here. I'm aware of Homestuck, in the way that spending any length of time on the internet means you're aware of Homestuck, but I didn't follow the original and I haven't delved into fanworks. So when I say that this is excellent? This is my opinion speaking outside of the fandom. I've watched this video multiple times and it's still as funny as the first time I saw it. The production value is excellent, and I have no idea how to describe this piece of absurdist theatre other than to gesture in your general direction and tell you to watch it yourself.

Terminator: Monkey's Paw
Summary: Life is a roll of the die, and a terminator can roll any number it wants.
Reccer's Notes: This vid is a really interesting exploration of life, artificiality, and what it means to be a terminator, all from Cameron's point of view. It is an excellent vid that picks up on the themes of the show in some interesting ways. (password protected, but password included on the page.)

Battlestar Galactica: Freedom, by TLI
Summary: "My name is Saul Tigh. I am an officer in the Colonial Fleet... that's the man I want to be."
Reccer's Notes: When the Final Five learned they were Cylons, they had a lot of choices to make about who they were going to be and where their loyalties lay, whether with the Humans or with the Cylons. This is about Saul's choice, and how the events in his life (both before and after he knew the truth) shaped him. Really evocative.

Summary: Leave some doom for the lucky ones. A season 1 vid from Johnny's POV. Warnings as listed.

MCU/Avengers: Run This Town by avengergasm
Summary: victory's within the mile/almost there, don't give up now/only thing that's on my mind/is who's gonna run this town tonight. Contains fast cuts, fast action, stuttery/strobey effects (multiple cuts within the same scene, black cards between frames).
Reccer's Notes: So this song is pretty overused as action vids go, but I promise you won't even notice! The vidder does a lot of cool things with the musicality of this song, harnessing the unsettling bits and the ominous minor chords really well. They even manage to keep up with Jay Z, who's got the best percussive flow in the rap game. (If you don't know, now you know.)
