## Denotes premiering video
# Title Vidder(s) Song (if different) Artist Fandom(s) Duration Download URL
1 Hope Kitarra Apocalyptica Firefly None
This vid really worked with the music to make me feel the extreme emotions River feels.
2 A Hero's Tale Luminosity, OSF Productions and Suze Carl Stalling Highlander None
A great use of unexpected music to provide comedy and an example of how music affects the mood and motion of a vid.
3 Sakura Azonia RevenG (Dance Dance Revolution) Kill Bill None
I chose this one for the distinctiveness of the music and the way the motion and effects worked with the song choice.
4 Danse Macabre Sarah the Boring Contradanza Vanessa Mae (with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra) Yami no Matsuei (aka Descendants of Darkness) None
An anime vid with great movement.
5 Wipe Out Sandy, Vivian and rache Surfaris Farscape and Stargate SG-1 None
This is a fun (not to mention prescient) vid that uses the freedom given by the lack of lyrics to highlight the similarities between Starscape and Fargate.
6 Layla T. Jonesy Eric Clapton (Derek and the Dominos) Star Trek TOS None
The instrumental portion of this song always invokes a certain nostalgia in me, and, consequently, it provides the perfect mood for a retrospective of Kirk and Spock.
7 Fata Obstant Eunice and Myrtle Elk Hunt Randy Edelman and Trevor Jones Buffy the Vampire Slayer None
The vid’s visual layers work with the instrumental layers to create a look at Buffy and Angel’s relationship.
8 The Tango Mimesere El Sombrero Blanco Traditional - from The Mask Of Zorro soundtrack Pirates of the Caribbean None
This vid really captures the rhythm of the swashbuckling swordplay.
9 Fade Out Rommie Memento (main theme) David Julyan Farscape None
Uses a relatively slow score set against gorgeous visuals to explore the emotional fallout from Bad Timing.
10 Mission: Impossible alexmmr Mission: Impossible (main theme) Larry Mullen & Adam Clayton Hercules and Xena: Warrior Princess None
Showcases TV theme song vids in which the characters of one show get to have fun trying out roles in different universes. This vid has a wonderful homage to one of the more infamous visuals of Mission: Impossible.
11 Requiem (The Fifth) Barkley Trans-Siberian Orchestra Stargate Atlantis None
Uses repetition to help structure the vid.
12 High Adventure Vrya Anvil of Crom (from the Conan the Barbarian Soundtrack) Basil Poledouris Angel None
Combines serious adventure music with visuals that are…hard to take seriously.
13 Flying Home Morgan Dawn Flying Home (from the Road to Perdition soundtrack) Thomas Newman due South None
A gorgeous piece in which the music soars and swoops with Fraser and his journey.
14 Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Abridged) Rowena William Tell Overture Gioacchino Rossini Buffy the Vampire Slayer None
Instrumentals provide a great opportunity to sum up, well, just about anything, including the entire run of Buffy in under three and a half minutes.
15 Sing, Sing, Sing Xandra Louis Prima Buffy the Vampire Slayer None
A swinging take on the episode "Once More with Feeling."
