So, congratulations Jana!
This is probably the last post for this year and today we are gonna talk about the winner of this amazing fandom called Castle, and the winner is Jana aka Kayenaatic. Jana is actually one those people that sticked to her own fandom and never change, now let's see step by step why she won. In her audition entry Always | everything eventually ends.. she made an incredible job, i still have shivers. She made a video with a quote, following that quote and bringing those words to life. Everything had his perfect sense and meaning, it was truly beautiful. Off to the first official round she chose to vid Katherine Beckett cuz she was the character that most reflected her. In her Katherine Beckett | people change when you're not looking.. entry she still used the power of Kate's quotes with an amazing song, that gets into your heart. How many times will it take to get it right? How many amazing moments, quotes..such an amazing work. For round two it was time for a music video and she chose to vid the cast in her entry florence & the machine - breath of life. There was a big cut between the music video and the additional clips but it was pure genius since it was just a change of coloring that made everything cleare and perfect. The clips fitted the song very well, the whole work was incredibly dynamic and powerfull. Off to the next round, about the sins, she chose envy in her alexis castle | why don't you just take your girlfriend entry. She managed to put together a video using colors like black & white with red, one of the most envyish coloring I know. The quotes were really powerfull and the song gave it a good push, really well done! Off to the opening credits round she made an opening on an episode, in her entry castle | opening credits "to love and die in LA. It still needs some work but it was definitely something new & fresh. For the last round it was time to use no effects and she made out something amazing. In her entry castle & beckett | scream till the words dry out she vidded her otp. The clips were perfect, they matched the song and the quotes gave it even more strenght. How could i not pick her?
So, congratulations Jana!
This time the fandom is the oc, such an under-vidded fandom and just yesterday the 10 year clock ticked. And the winner is..Ellie. In her audition round video ryan&marissa holding you she captured the relationship so greatly and she chose such an amazing song to make it all flow evev better. In her second round people had to show a piece of you, using your fandom and that's what i felt on her summer roberts | where i stood entry. She picked Summer, I'd say her most fragile side. It was so touching and it was incredible how the song fitted the clips, it was incredible..I really felt it. So, time to head off to the second where it was all about making a music video. In her entry music video I loved how simple and perfect was. At first it might look silly and simple but the song is really perfect for ryan & marissa. It explains their struggles, their love, their moments. It was such an amazing entry, one of my favourites. The second round was about the sins and boom here is comes her entry the oc | envy. She chose envy and she applied the sin to all the characters in the show, which was really impressing. I saw envy on another side, more jealousy..on how everyone wanted something they could not have. Next round was about making an opening credit for the show and so she did in ther the oc | opening credits video. Def not the typical opening but it really explained this show journey all over again, using all four seasons and it was definitely something new. Last round was all about seeing the true winner, i know Ellie was basically the only person in this fandom for a few rounds and she kept going. For the effectsless challenge she vidded, what i feel like it is, her best "subject" aka marissa and ryan. The song was incredible, the clips, the quotes. Yeah, it was effectsless but it was so damn perfect..every second of it. This is why she is the best fandom vidder when it comes to the oc.

Off to the next categorie, the vampire diaries and the winner is belle333black. In her audition entry, that's why i have to let you go, Jamie did an amazing job featuring everything that happened in the season finale of the vampire diaries with an amazing song, perfect quotes and touching moments. For the first challenge, put yourself in my shoes, she chose to vid Caroline as the character that can represent her mostly. Lot of parallels, great song, clips choice and quotes on her satellite heart entry. Round two, it was time for a music video challenge and again she did a great job on her don't tell me if i'm dying entry. She used all the characters, featuring all the seasons aired so far also adding heartbraking moments that went perfectly with the song. Round three was all about the deadly sing and she vidded anger on her anger entry. I gotta admit this was one of the best entries because it explained the sin so good, she showed the whole journey of the sin itself and who affects. it was really great and touching, such a nice job. Off to the opening credits she vidded one episode in her entry 4x09 opening credits. She used a kickass song, she made a very nice clips montage and used some flares to make it even better. I gotta admit i was really having an hard time picking the winner for the last challenge cuz i had no idea who to choose since they all did an amazing job especially Jamie and Edie. But after seeing her entry, it's mystic falls nothing bad ever happens here, i knew it. She chose a very simple song, an instrumental and she made a whole video featuring every single thing this show is about. she talked about the creatures we see, the relationships, the dangers, the losses. Every single fact was there and it was simply beautiful. So perfect but yet so beautiful.
Here we go to the next fandom and winner. Let's talk about the fantasy show Once Upon A Time and the best fandom vidder is gss42x. This fandom was very hard to decide cuz the last two entries were amazing and special on so many levels but i cannot deny that I've been charmed by this amazing vidder that i think it's REALLY underrated. For the audition round she chose to vid Rumple and Belle on her entry my sweet prince, rumplestiltskin & belle. The amazing thing, except for the superb editing, was also the way she kept it real by using only the scenes of them with no manips and the amazing parallels between the real world and the fantasy one. Moving to round 1 she vidded Regina in her entry a rush of blood to the head. Not only the video was fantastic as the editing, but the clips selection was just superb. The way she put together the quotes, the memories of Regina explaining why she became the way she is now. Off to round two, the one based on the music video challenge, she vidded it's not over with Snow & Charming. The song choice was perfect and i gotta admit this was one of my fav entries between all the others. It could have easily been a real music video since the coloring was perfect and very similar to the real music video parts and the clips matched perfectly the lyrics and the characters history. Another great thing was the switch of characters, three challenges so far and already 5 different characters showed. On the next round about the seven deadly sins, she outadated everyone. In her entry no one is immune to sin, once upon a time she did such an intense and powerful job.
She chose anger and wrath and made out a maserpiece. Not only she used a lot of important quotes that made you feel that anger but she also showed how it affected every character, featuring even characters like Red and Jefferson. It was all incredibly powerful and the video was "telling" this feeling in a very unique way. Her journey through the whole contest was like a progressive scale, cuz each round she has always made something very unique and different from all the others. Another amazing entry of hers was the opening credits. She chose kinda of an instrumental music featuring all the characters by using drawings made or worked in Photoshop by herself. Since the whole show is about fairytales that was a big idea and she worked on it perfectly by also doing researched on other openings from HBO. It wasn't a big fancy opening but it was magical and very well done, def something very new and creative. Now off to the last round, again she got me with her entry national anthem. She got back at the beginning with Rumple and Belle but this time, it was all much sexier and even better, if that can be. She showed perfectly the journey of these two characters and Belle's change. It was hard since there were no effects allowed and still she made up something completely breathtaking by only using the right scenes and proving again her knownledge of the fandom and that's why she won.

Today it's time to talk about True Blood. it was really really hard to decide between the last two entries cuz both of the editors did such an amazing job in their whole BFV journey but there was some little things that made the difference and made Andrea win. I am not able to find the audition round so i'll start with the first actual round where people had to vid a character that could represent them. I admit that in True Blood it's hard to find one but she chose Sookie in her it's always darkest before the dawn entry. She really expressed how much she misses her grandmother through the video, like the Sookie herself was and I know the feeling since my grandmother just passed away. It was a very great video, featuring a lot of those perfect quotes and scenes that it's hard to find when u do not have an amazing ability and knownledge of the fandom. For the music video challenge she went deeper by using a couple, all seen in her a little taste entry. Not only the song choice was perfect but also the whole story was. She also used some clips from promos, i can easily say that the images, the clips spoke for themselves. It was really hot and well done. My favourite entry from her was the study of gluttony, used in the sins challenge. She chose gluttony and she used it really great on her advantage, by also adding a fun side to it, cuz True Blood with all the vampires and the sex and the blood is also a really funny show, It's not just about people eating all the time there are also some funny manips and effects which made it even better and funnier, making it look like a small promo too. She did not focus only on the vampires but also on the humans, which was really great. For the next challenge, the opening one, her true blood 6 opening was breathtaking. It featured all that was gonna happen in the new season by using a lot of different clips and by creating new themes. She featured the Lillith blood, the new dynamics that the show was about to take and she it all perfectly. The clips and the effects were just stunning. The last challenge, which i think has been the most difficult for everyone, I think she handled it better than everyone else. In her the tirant is rising entry, she chose an amazing song and again by using trailer clips and some from the previous seasons she created an amazing video. The song was going really great with the clips and the texts created an even more powerfull video. So i am really happy to congratulate myself with Andrea for doing such an amazing job and being a part of this contest.
This girl has only 896 subscribers and with her talent is a real shame. So if you are a true blood fan u should definitely check her out cuz she sure as hell deserves it.
Third fandom is gonna be one tree hill. There was a big tie between two of the last three entries i got, but at the end Karolina made it over the others. The video she chose for the audition round, when you get worries i'll be your soldier, it was a great cast video made on the show featuring all the nine seasons and all the different characters. For the second round she really used emotions on her advantage by using such a strong powerfull combination of effects, clips and character. She choose Brooke in i'd rather feel nothing and she got through her own life and Brooke's to have an amazing mashup of what the challenge was really about. The other challenge was about making a music video with a real song, one tree hill music video lullaby. Again a great work with all the character and each scene fitting great with the music and the video itself. The entry that really got me was the seven deadly sins one, seven devils. The video was really powerfull and i did have chills all over my body. She chose wrath, which is one of the worst sins of all time. Wrath also means having this burning desire of vengeance and violence which she explained really really well especially with Dan's past, Peyton and the fake brother, Lucas and Nathan and all the other characters and relationships. The combination of the episode and the song was really great for the opening challenge, 8x22 opening. What i love most about it is how she made an opening on the last episode of the season instead it felt like a new beginning. Last but not least the winning challenge, brooke and lucas gravity. She did great by using again an amazing amount of emotion with such a great clips montage and an amazing song choice. The song was incredibly beautiful and the clips went really well with it. So, i'm happy to call you the best one tree hill vidder!
At the last round for gossip girl i only had three entries and here the reasons why mariam got crowned as gossip girl queen B. People will start complaining on how she won, maybe cuz she is in my collab group or cuz she is a friend of mine, well nope. i always try to be as honest and objective as possible so here we go. Her audition round entry was seven nation army ft mister chuck bass. I'll be honest and i'll tell u that i've quitted gossip girl in season 4 but I'll also tell u that each time i see a video of hers on gossip girl i really wanna take my dvds and start all over again. Her first entry was amazing, she truly showed how much she loved and knew the show with all the quotes and the parallels with the character. Her second entry, girlfriend, showed perfectly one more time her knownledge of the show. Infact she made up a triangle between Chuck, Blair and Serena using manipulations that really fitted the story and made it all ever more realistic. Definitely my favourite video challenge from her was the 7 deadly sins one. In her some nights entry she used pride, which is not a very easy sin to explain. Having pride also means having a lot of self esteem and a high vision of yourself like it happens on the show and she got that point loud and clear when she mentioned their names, like with Blair and Chuck being afraid of loosing their "identity" and power. It's also amazing how she always shows each single member in equal measure without always using the same character. The next entry was the gossip girl opening credits where she used a very glamourous and sexy song , using also some parts of the actual gossip girl opening. For the last round she choose an amazing cast video, keep breathing. In this video she put all the most amazing moments in the show, creating a big tribute to the show that just ended, and there i was already hers. The last video was heartbreaking, with amazing parallels and amazing moments from the cast itself. It all matched perfectly with the song and it was simply beautiful even with no effects or special coloring. So here i crown u the gossip girl queen.
At the end of this season only two people post their entries, svesh95 & TayMarieVideos.
Both vidders made an amazing journey with all their entries and they showed their love and passion for the fandom. I gotta admit supernatural was one of the most difficult fandoms to decide from cuz all the vidders were really incredible. Natalie, aka svesh95, really got me.
It's incredible the work she has done and how much she has grown, from her first entry. Her first entry, you are a monster, the one made for the audition round only was kickass. it followed every single aspect of the beauty of sam winchester, from the angelic one to the devilish one. The suffering, the strenght, the cravings, the visions, every single thing was perfect and in sync with the song and the voiceovers. I remember watching her "you're my big brother" and being in love with their parallels and the brotherhood between the winchesters, i literally had tears in my eyes. She skipped the music video challenge but it was no biggie since i already knew she was up in the next one. The good thing is that she has always been in sync with the fandom, she didn't change it. Off to the next video, following dad's orders, a good little soldier, she based a video on envy. She explained envy with a lot of texts and quotes that clearly made you feel like you were in dean's shoes, like you knew exactly what he was going through and not the typical envy, she went really deep into the character. Next challenge was the opening one, supernatural opening credits. People think that making an opening credit is a joke because is a short amount of seconds and clips but that's not true. In this challenge you had to prove you knew the fandom that good and she handled it amazingly. The song choice reflected the show itself, the clips montage and the effects were in order, and whole together it genuinely told the story of the show. The last entry was the one who really got me, i was a king, i had a gold throne. Without using any effects she made a breathtaking job using her knownledge of the fandom and her incredible talent. I had my face covered up in tears the whole time and that doesn't happen a lot to me. She really got me and I am really proud to say that she is the best supernatural vidder, in every sense.
