This video is actually a message of hope and power. It's my video about Kurt's influence on the world around him. It's a video that could have gone a very different direction, but I wanted to show reality mixed with the splash of life that IS Kurt. If you can't tell by this video, I really love this character. I want so much for him. This is a glimpse of him. This is how I see him. I focused heavily on movement and the reactions of others around him. I wanted him to perform his life for us, the exciting and the tragic, I wanted all of it, and I wanted it dramatic. It evolved from an idea I had when I was watching "Were The World Mine" about making a video that is pure performance start to finish. This is... well, it's something like that anyway.

This song was never going to be vidded about anyone else for me. This song says it all, what power there is to enrapture within the right voice, from the right mouth, from the right face. Watching 2x06 finally tied the video together for me. This has been my baby. Treat it well.

Feedback tremendously welcome. I slaved over a hot stove all day to make you this!

Oh, that's fantastic! *applauds* Really beautifully put together.

(Here via vidding; I don't watch Glee. :-)

I'm so glad you like it! Yay!

This is so many kinds of awesome. I wasn't sure how the song could possibly work with Glee, but you made my heart break and yet still be hopeful for Kurt. Beautiful :)

To me it's the ultimate song about celebrity, and as that's so important to Kurt, I thought hey, let's try this... and yes, it immediately all made sense to me :)

I've always wanted to vid that song for that exactly reason. It's a goodie. I'm glad it worked for someone besides myself.

Wonderful, wonderful! *applauds* You may be single-handedly responsible for getting me to watch Glee. I've resisted thus far, but Kurt is seriously tempting me...

He's what lead me over, to be honest. And Mercedes. And Finn, a little. And Sue. And Becky. Okay, I'm going to stop. Thank you for watching even though it's not your show *sqishes* :)

This vid was just totally gorgeous and mesmerizing. I can't stop watching it on loop. :)

Yay! Best thing I could hear.

I really enjoyed this, thanks for sharing! :)
*downloads and saves on computer*

Thank you for sharing, that was really beautiful vid!

Love it! Great editing and I like the choice of song as well.

Oh, beautiful. Kurt has my heart, and you've just captured him here, in all the glorious and ridiculous and painful and joyful experience of finding your way in the world when you're not quite what it expects.

(Btw, watched this on youtube and I'd love to dl, but the megaupload link doesn't seem to be working. Halp?)

Tried to leave a reply yesterday and lj died. DX
Absolutely epic.
Seriously, if you'd asked me before-hand if I thought Black Velvet was the right song for a Kurt vid I would've said no, which is why I know nothing and you make amazing vids XD
I loved it.

Even if I didn't already love this song, this video is amazing. I was just going to watch it at first but as soon as it finished I just had to download it. I really like that you captured so many of the different sides of Kurt, strong, proud, brittle, hurt, sad. It's fantastic.

I haven't watched Glee since last season, but this was riveting regardless. The images just pop! Beautiful.

Wow, this is amazing. I don't watch Glee(and, uh, I'm really never going to, sadly), but this tells such a strong and vivid story, it's like this effortless constant shift between intensely stylized and completely raw. It's really going to stick with me.

Oh my god. This is GORGEOUS and wonderful and I just.. I LOVE the editting so much I can barely stand it, and the lesser-seen clips you chose are just perfect. Wow. WOW.

Thank you for making this, and for sharing it. <3
