So I think I mentioned that I made a vid! It premiered at Vividcon so now I can put it here.

Title: Landsailor
Source: Legend of Korra (and Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Music: "Landsailor," Vienna Teng
Content Notes: Implied reference to genocide

Landsailor from skygiants on Vimeo.

(Download from Google Drive.)

'Last airbender': no longer accurate.

Many thanks to [personal profile] shati for not just betaing but very patiently holding my hand throughout the entire learning-how-to-vid process, [personal profile] innerbrat for betaing and cheerleading, and [personal profile] aberration for betaing FROM MONGOLIA which is above and beyond the call of duty.

Ooh, applause!

Very nicely done.

(And clearly I need to look up more of Vienna Teng, her voice is gorgeous).

That was really good! Perfect song choice for Jinora, and I love how the final stanza brings in the rest of the airbenders. Lovely.

I saw on somebody's review post -- probably [personal profile] kass -- that there was a "Landsailor" Korra vid, and I found this very exciting. I'm delighted to hear it's yours. Going to watch it now.


Having watched it:

What a perfect Jinora song! I admit I still haven't seen S2, so I had to do some guessing about a bunch of the middle bit. I love the repeated image of the wind maze (does it have a name???) and Jinora fitting within it. I spent the whole vid waiting for the moment when Jinora was revealed as an Airbending Master (starting from "I'm a child no more," I think), but it was right as the last beat of the vid, the culmination of Jinora's journey.

I'm not as familiar with the source as I should be, but this was so moving to watch, even not knowing the specific context. :)

Oh, this is beautifully done and an exceptional use of the song - particularly using the duet section to fold in all the other airbenders. I love the repeated use of the fluidity of the airbending itself to echo the movement of the music, and Jinora's journey from student to master and child to young adult is so well portrayed in such a short time. Great job!

Well, the visuals have convinced me I really need to see the rest of Korra. How much of this vid is from the second season which I was determined to skip?

(I put _Korra_ on hold after S1 so I can't say anything more useful, sorry.)

Jinora never made a huge impact on me, but this vid is lovely and reminds me of how lovely she is, too! I may have gotten teary-eyed at the end.

Oh, this is gorgeous! And makes me want to watch the rest of Legend of Korra though I bailed a little over halfway through season one. Jinora is so great!

Also, how does Vienna Teng always have perfect songs for vids and fandom in general?

I haven't watched more than twenty minutes of the first A:TLA episode (because my kid said it was too scary last year, and I'd like to see it with her once she can handle it). That said, I like this very much, and especially how you've used the spinning . . . room divider sections? The rectangular thingers.
