Fanvid: Any Other World  
Fandom: Orphan Black
Description: A tribute to Sarah and her clone sisters in their worlds gone insane.
Characters: Ensemble but Clone Club centric.
Music: 'Any Other World' by Mika
Length: 3.40mins
Warnings: S1 & S2 spoilers. Mild violence.
Beta: Thanks eternally to my vidding sestra cylune9.
Author's Note: During the last few stressful weeks, vidding has become my therapy. I've wanted use this song to make an OB vid for a year now but I'm glad I waited for the S2 clips (editing clone dance parties is fun for me). As I post this I'm also realizing that I never linked my Teen Wolf fanvid to my LJ. I won't make a separate entry because I don't think there are very many TW fans on my flist but follow the link if you like the show and/or my vids.

I love everything about that vid! It has such an emotional resonance. I had tears when I first saw it and doesn't fade after more viewings. I love your choice of focusing first on Sarah and then floor us with all the other characters. Their reveals was so well edited! I also liked that you also included other characters than the clones (Delphine, Felix and Donnie... I especially like that shot of Donnie you added toward the end and the clips of Felix you selected were heartbreaking! Poor Felix). And the last clip was haunting and perfect.

The show and the characters deserved such a great vid!

Thanks so much for your beta, Lune! Your concrit was all on-point and I feel a lot happier about the video now. It was always my idea for it to start as a Sarah-centric vid and then introduce Helena, Cosima and Alison in the second verse. Since I knew I'd be ending with the clone club dancing I wanted to include regular snippets of honorary members Felix and Kira too (Felix especially since his loft has become Clone HQ!) I got the idea to add Donnie at the last minute. I think Donnie definitely earned his clone club badge in S2.

Glad you liked the ending (and thanks for advising me to change it). It came to me at the very last minute. Thanks as ever for a great beta. Do you have any upcoming vidding plans at all? Or did your last BrBa vid finish you off?! *hope not*

What a marvellous tribute to the Clones. And what a great song you've found for them! I love this vid.

Thank you, selenak! And thanks so much for reccing my vid on your own LJ.

Here via selenak's rec on DW and holy crap, this is fantastic! I adore the sequence after 1:05, when you introduce the other clones, followed by the music picking up, and I love the lyrics you chose for each of the characters. I also like how this simultaneously shows the shattering and turning of their world(s), which is still ongoing, but also what they've gained, each other. Lovely.

Thanks so much for the lovely comment. I'd been planning to make an OB vid with this song since S1 but it was the S2 finale that gave me the perfect ending. The song sounds very uplifting at the end and that clone slumber party in Felix's loft did show that something positive had come out of having their worlds turned upside-down.

I LOVE IT. Wouldn't have pictured Any Other World for this fandom but it works so well! Especially with the way you've juxtaposed the lyrics with certain images. Very nicely edited, too. This vid is good job. ♥

Thanks so much. This one was fiddly to make so I'm pleased if it came out right in the end.

Perfect song.

Perfect clips.

AMAZING editing.

I'm gonna go watch it again now and try not to cry. IS IT SUPPOSED TO MAKE ME CRY? Because it pretty much does. MY BB, RACHEL. And Helena dancing with her freaking skirt in her mouth. AND JUST, ALISON AND ALL THE THINGS, OKAY?

Is it time for season three yet?

I didn't intend for this vid to be such a tearjerker but it's really great to hear that it's been making OB fans emotional. Best compliment a vidder can get really. So glad you liked the Rachel part. She's not really part of Clone Club (yet!) but she also had her world ripped apart in S2 so I wanted there to be some heartache for her.

Is it time for season three yet?

I'm still in so much denial over how far away S3 is. *sigh*

Hey girl - didn't you have thoughts to add to my book discussion thread?

Loved the video! It made me all teary-eyed too! Very well done and I think it was a perfect song choice.

Thanks so much. Didn't know you were an OB fan too!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked the hopeful ending. I got lucky with that clone dance party scene. Until that moment came I had no idea what I was going to do with the happy bit of music at the end of the song.

That was really wonderful.

Here on selenak's rec, and this is wonderful.

Many others have already made the points I would, so let me just say I love your slow grounding of the view in Sarah's POV and the discovery of Beth before bringing in the other clones, and the way the refrain grows in resonance as it appears over different characters' lives and critical moments. Fantastic job.

This was really lovely ♥

I love this so much! Perfect song choice and omg, the clips for every repetition of "say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in" were perfect every time.
