My favourite Festivids for 2010-11

Festivids this year has been amazing. So many good songvids, and so many new fandoms to check out!

Here are all of my personal favourites. There are a lot more really great vids linked over on the Masterlist, including some for small fandoms that I couldn't really appreciate as I hadn't seen the source. Well worth checking out if you are a fan of rare fandoms.

If you want more information about any of these recs, you can find them with tags (genre, rating, warnings, etc) on rec_room.

Blue Ribbon
These are the vids I loved best. They are technically gorgeous, have a wonderful concept, build the drama, and are hugely re-watchable.

MISC (Life After People) No Pairing, 'End of the World' by anon (songvid) (PG-13)
Competely awesome! Who knew the end of the world could be so much fun? But in the hands of this awesome vidder, it totally is. A must see vid.

MISC (SyFy's Alice) No Pairing, 'Her Name Is Alice' by anon (songvid) (PG-13)
What an awesome songvid. This is visually stunning, and has great dramatic build too.

Highly Recommended
These vids are also totally awesome, but require a bit of canon knowledge to get the most out of them.

MISC (The Big Lebowski) No Pairing, 'State of Confusion' by anon (songvid) (PG-13)
