BSG vid: Closer
Song: Closer
Artist: Nine Inch Nails
Editor: SabaceanBabe
Focus: Kara Thrace/Sam Anders
Warnings: excessive hotness, a little nookie, and the "f word" (and I'm not talkin' FRAK)
Vidder's notes: thank you so much, nicole_anell, for the beta. *hugs you tight* This vid was started for lyssie's birthday, way back in September '08, but I'm just now finishing it. I wanted to get it right, you know? Happy birthday, Lyssie! *hugs you tight, too*

"Closer"

You let me violate you
You let me desecrate you
You let me penetrate you
You let me complicate you
Help me I broke apart my insides
Help me I’ve got no soul to sell
Help me the only thing that works for me
Help me get away from myself
I want to fuck you like an animal
I want to feel you from the inside
I want to fuck you like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god
You can have my isolation
You can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith
You can have my everything
Help me tear down my reason
Help me its' your sex I can smell
Help me you make me perfect
Help me become somebody else
I want to fuck you like an animal
I want to feel you from the inside
I want to fuck you like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god




Enjoy! :D

*floor*

I know I should have more concise comments to make, but I'm due in bed...I have oral surgery in the morning! (I actually turned my computer back on to DL when I saw it on my phone.) But know I love, love, love this. Brilliant song choice and so shippy and angsty!

(I actually turned my computer back on to DL when I saw it on my phone.)

Wow. That's one of the most flattering comments I've ever gotten on a vid. *blush*

I'm so glad you liked it. I think it's my favorite of my own vids, although I can't really take too much credit for the song choice - that was lyssie.

*dances about like a gleeful small child* Yay! Thank you!!

It makes me happy that you liked this vid. :D *bounce* And you're welcome.

Wow. I'm blown away. Poor Sam.

Thank you. *squish*

I've never watched BSG but this was very well-edited. I also like your use of texture in certain places. Nice work!
sabaceanbabe From: sabaceanbabe Date: January 16th, 2009 03:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you so much! I've never used a texture in a vid before, so I'm so relieved that it worked for you.

That was fantastic SB! The song, and it's not my kind of music at all, was sorta creepily perfect for them. And you have a unique talent for picking shots of Michael Trucco where he looks sexy as hell. (He's a very good looking guy but at select times, I think he's a little unphotogenic). The aged/dirty look of the footage was such a nice effect too.
sabaceanbabe From: sabaceanbabe Date: January 16th, 2009 03:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you so much! It's such a harsh song, but yeah, it does work for them, in an odd way.

The aged/dirty look of the footage was such a nice effect too.

I'm so glad that worked. :D All I did was take a screencap of the random visual effects that play when you listen to music on your computer and then cleaned it up and put it in the vid as an overlay on a whim. I'd really meant to use it just for making icons. :P

You make most amazing intros! And, you are the queen of non-linear editing!
Really, I love this song, it's so raw and dark and fits to Kara/Anders relationship. I can't tell which part I liked the best but, aside from the intro and the ending, I think that would be both refrains. (Better yet the second one with sweat mega-mix O_o)
sabaceanbabe From: sabaceanbabe Date: January 16th, 2009 03:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee! Thank you so much! :D

Why did hubby stay home today?!?! I'm going to have to put on my head phones so I can listen without disturbing him...I'll get back to you.

Oh, BTW, guess who I think is a big NIN fan...you know, being an angry screwed up teen in the early 90s and all...
sabaceanbabe From: sabaceanbabe Date: January 16th, 2009 03:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heh. I'm guessing Elias? ;)
beccatoria From: beccatoria Date: January 7th, 2009 03:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oooh. So this is totally interesting because it's so much darker than I usually see Kara/Sam. Which is probably naive of me - there's totally some messed up stuff there but it always struck me as "messed up and sad" rather than "fucked up and scary", you know? The whole Sam-as-a-Cylon/Kara-as-the-Harbinger-of-Death made it seem starcrossed and destined and messily romantic rather than bleak and horrifying and dangerous and dark.

But you sell it in this video - which I basically read as being from Sam's viewpoint as he grappled with his newfound identity - and it was really cool to see that story with darker undertones.

You made a real alternate (to me!) interpretation of the text. Kudos!
sabaceanbabe From: sabaceanbabe Date: January 16th, 2009 04:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you so much. I don't think I've ever made someone look at something differently with one of my vids before. And yes, you read it exactly the way I meant it, so yay for that, too. This vid is from Sam's POV, trying to deal with all that life is throwing at him right now, from the end of the worlds to the unexpected relationship with Kara to learning that everything he knew before was a lie to doubting himself where he's never doubted before to sending friends to their deaths and then having to wonder if it was all for some unknown Cylon agenda where he'd thought it was to free humanity. Um, sorry. I think that may have gone just a little meta on you.
lee_in_limbo From: lee_in_limbo Date: January 7th, 2009 04:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, as you probably remember, I've never shipped on Sam and Kara. Still, that was a pretty heavy video. Nice work. And of course, I've always loved that song. I'm an angsty deviant at heart.

Lee.

You know, I can always be sure that a vid has turned out pretty well if you comment on it, because you just generally don't seem to watch fan videos. Thank you for this. *hug*

*iz smooshed*

Thank you. "Guh" is a perfectly acceptable form of feedback. :D

<3 I really like it, hon!!!!

I'm always happy to see one of your vids!!! =)

Kara/Sam = Love!!

I'm sorry I'm still late on the Sweet Charity vid for you, but with some BSG rewatching, I've been starting to shape the vid in my mind at least, and will work on it asap. I'm slowly getting back into vidding. >_<

*hugs*
sabaceanbabe From: sabaceanbabe Date: January 16th, 2009 04:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you, N! :D

And take your time on the SC vid -- I'm anxious to see it, but I'm more than happy to wait for it, because I know it'll be awesome.

By the way, I just downloaded some of your Dark Angel vids yesterday, so I'll leave you some feedback on those soon. I loved them, though.

I want to give you more detailed feedback, but I don't know if I'll have time today, so i just wanted to say wow. What an amazingly dark take on Sam and Kara/Sam. I was actually sure this was going to be a Kara POV vid when I saw what song you were using, but you absolutely sold this, even if for me it's also an alternate reading of the text.
sabaceanbabe From: sabaceanbabe Date: January 16th, 2009 04:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad you liked it. It did turn out kind of dark and angsty, but it's a very harsh song and I'm just ecstatic that you and beccatoria are both seeing it as an alternate reading of the text, because I've never done that before. My work, at least to me, seems pretty straight forward and to have something be interpreted this way let's me know that I've done something right and maybe made people see some of the other layers -- no matter what others may think, Kara and Sam are richly layered and "real." They're not being thrown together just because they're very pretty or because they're easy. There's depth there, too.
