New Vid: Give Me Everything (Parks and Recreation)

So as soon as I finished watching Pitch Perfect in the theater, I knew I wanted to vid the last mashup which was just epically awesome. While driving to Denver, I was listening to it and trying to place it to a fandom. I was looking for a Happy Endings song so I tried that and when that didn't work, I tried Parks and Recreation. SUCCESS! It fit perfectly and my excitement was only increased by knowing that Laura loves vids about ALL THE WOMEN and acapella. So when I got Eli as my assignment and had to pick a coverup, I chose this one, in part because I have another Parks vid planned and needed something to get me to clip it. In hindsight...maybe a bad idea with the 12 seasons of clipping to do (combining my assignment vid) but it did work as a motivator and I'm really happy I made this vid. There was a lot of tech problems making it as my external hard drive died and I had to rerip the DVDs and reindex them (they were in a weird order), then my Mac drive that was the new place for my DVDs died (twice) and finally I bought a new cheap drive and transfered the files from the backup drive ([profile] jetpackmonkey was a lifesaver here). Not to mention finding out I indexed the DVDs wrong so that they were in 29.97 FPS and not 23.976 and so I had to reindex everything.

Other than that though and clipping taking forever, this was so much fun to make! I rewatched the entire series and laughed so much and fell in love with Leslie Knope about 240928190 more times. Seriously, you do not want to know the number of times I proposed to her. I can't help but ship her with everyone although I admit it was very hard to get through the Leslie/Jennifer scenes without bursting into flames from the hotness. I loved getting a chance to focus on all the women's relationships with Leslie and with each other although I quickly realized there was way too much footage to fit into such a small song.

I am so THRILLED AND GRATEFUL, you have no idea! I just keep watching this, and when I'm not watching the song is earworming me and I'm going to my happy place FOREVER.

Reading about how much of a challenge it was for you to complete it by deadline just makes me more honored that you would create something so wonderful for me. Thank you thank you thank you.

FUNNY STORY, AKA THE LONG VERSION OF THAT TWEET:

I was really obsessed with this vid when it came out and I watched it a LOT (I mean a LOT -- weekly, daily, a couple times in a row, just like, a ridiculous number of frequent viewings) and then IDK I switched computers or something and I haven't seen it in a *really* long time... at least a year. Keep in mind, this whole time, in my heart I'm still like, [personal profile] anoel made the most perfect Parks and Rec vid and I love it to pieces and it makes me really happyyyyy (so happy).

UM TONIGHT* IS THE FIRST TIME I WATCHED IT SINCE I GOT INTO PITCH PERFECT AND I KINDA LOST MY MIND. Because A- I didn't remember this was the song! (how would I remember??? I never knowingly heard the Bellas Finale as like it's own thing before) and B- PARKS AND REC WITH THE BELLASSSSSS. It’s like a fave vid looks totally different and new but also still perfect in its sameness???! It's a very confusing but delightful experience.

so um, now I have to watch it another 1000000000 times and also try to piece together the magical feelings of the first time I saw it. And there's this whole new layer! A WHOLE OTHER LAYER. Also Leslie and Chloe are a lot alike.

*thanks chaila for reminding me that it's been awhile

ETA: AND NOW I WANT CROSSOVER FIC SOOOO BAAAAAAAAADDDDDD. I don't even know what it would be. Leslie is a Barden Bellas fangirl??? she would be. Like, if anyone would nerd out over acappella it'd be Leslie. I just. YOU ARE A SORCERESS.
