Summary: All the Jews! All the Feelz!. The Jewish dance vid of my heart.

Thanks to: Oh, man, the list. First and foremost, thanks to [personal profile] sanguinity and [personal profile] ghost_lingering for so much support and helpful feedback. Thanks to [personal profile] kass for positive feedback when it was desperately needed. Thanks to J,L,L,T, and B for giving me the opportunity to watch people respond to the vid in person and see what was landing. Thanks to a different J and L for offering a round of specifically Jewish feedback. Thanks to [personal profile] thirdblindmouse for canon suggestions and source provision. Thanks to anyone who has listened to me babble about Jewish movies in the past year, which is most of the people I know, even if they didn't necessarily know the reason I was watching a particular movie or show.

I have so much to say about the making of this vid and my feelings about all the characters and fandoms in it that it's honestly a little paralyzing. I've written thousands of words of reveal notes and I still have thousands of words to go, but here is the vid! I worked on this vid from October to May and I poured all my heart and all my soul and all my might into this vid. It feels so amazing to finally share it with the world. It was so amazing to dance to it at Vividcon, wearing my Soulless Golem T-shirt.



There is a time for everything
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for war and a time for peace

But tonight we are all happy
It’s time to dance!

Fantastic, I was chair dancing and missing VVC all over again. Lost it at Ivonava and that last shot (well, second to last) is perfect. Love it madly.

I can't wait to read your commentary on this if and when you feel like posting it; I loved this vid when I saw it in draft form, and I loved it even more in the context of Club Vivid. It is fabulous and was a delight to dance to! One of the highlights of my weekend. :-)

Have a wonderful time in Helsinki!

I loved this so much! Seeing clips from The Chosen and Crossing Delancey, two of my favorite movies from my youth, made my heart soar, and that you also managed to have all these other wonderful characters I know, I was like, Oh! Him! Oh! Her! all the way through (especially Oded Fehr OMG). I'm so glad you made this.

This was so wonderful, and the last shot brought a little lump to my throat! Any vid containing Brooklyn Nine Nine, Mass Effect and Joseph & the ATD has to be a winner. :D

oh my god, oh my GOD I DID NOT KNOW I NEEDED THIS UNTIL IT APPEARED. THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT. THANK YOU. It made me laugh and it made me cry and even though I only recognised a fraction of the fandoms it made me flail with glee every time I glimpsed someone I recognised, I did keep wondering - where is Willow?? and then she ENDED the vid and it was PERFECT and I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR (MITZVAH). I will be watching this a MILLION TIMES. Also, if you do ever want to post your thousands of words of thoughts, I would ABSOLUTELY DEFINITELY want to read them.

THANK YOU.

Wow. This totally made me cry.

(Partly because it made me wish so hard I could show it to my dad as a way of saying "DAD LET ME EXPLAIN FANDOM TO YOU.")

So much yiddishe dancing joy.

From: [personal profile] littlecatk
i saw this on tumblr without any notes, started it because there have been real gems in the clubvids before, and loved it. i love the song and the energy of it (weddings are lovely in movies, i never been to one in real life but they are often so much positiv-ness in movies (at least when they are like end scene weddings and not murder at a wedding dissonance - and i love group dances!))
there are a lot of sources i dont regonice (but maybe i will try to check out some of them).
and as many others already said i would love to read the notes to this one day.
thanks for making and sharing this video!

This is AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL and PERFECT and I am crying and now I have all of the feelings about Jewishness and Jewish characters and representation and positivity and joy and dancing and I DON'T KNOW WHAT DO DO WITH THEM ALL. Thank you so much for making this vid.

I would love to read all your many words about these many fandoms if and when you do want to post them!

I wish you could've heard the squeaky noise I made when the music cut out on WILLOW AND TARA.

And omg. This is so joyful! I loved it. I can tell it has a bunch of ~things going on I'm not getting (commentary pls I'd read that so hard) but also it works anyway, and did the thing really well-cut multifandom vids do of both "ooh I should check that out" and "OMG IT'S THEM WITH THAT!"
