laene_lif: (Luke and Leia)

Title: One and the Same
Song: "Two-Headed Boy Part 2" // Neutral Milk Hotel
Characters/Pairs: Luke, Leia, Anakin, Padme
Description: This is a study of the whole Skywalker family and how they relate to each other. Luke wonders about his father and comes to sense that they are not very different -- he is actually very like his mother as well, though, with his kindness, idealism and hope. After meeting, Luke and Leia become very close and realize that they have a sort of connection, and that they are twins and struggling with a lot of the same things. They are both reflections of both their parents in different ways. The last segment of the video focuses on the parents and on how much Padme means to Anakin, but because they live on in their children and all is one, he shouldn't be afraid to let her go ("Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force," as Yoda said).
Note: I made this for a challenge at [ profile] sw_fanvids a few weeks back and just got to posting it here now. As you can see, it won 5th place. (The video quality is pretty terrible. Nothing I could do about it.)

Title: What It Is To Burn
Music Artist: Finch
Size: 11 MB
Description: Anakin's all-consuming passion and how it ends up destroying everything. Padme becomes everything to him, the only one he can relate to and the only thing he really cares about, but eventually he becomes so caught up in his passion that he loses sight even of her, and everything that he's fighting for. (Or: How raging hormones and batshit paranoia brought about the end of the Jedi and the Galactic Republic.)

Title: This Time Imperfect
Movie: Star Wars (Episodes I-III)
Song: "This Time Imperfect" by AFI
Summary: "There are no flowers -- no, not this time. There'll be no angels gracing the lines." Anakin's disappointment, disillusionment and loneliness. The impact of being separated from his mother, and later, of her death. The impact of Qui-Gon's death and consequently being taken under Obi-Wan's reluctant wing instead. And how Anakin and the Jedi just did not mesh; although the Jedi were good and well-intentioned, they were perhaps too inflexible and unsympathetic in his case, which was unique. Just like Anakin's fear of loss ended up ultimately bringing about that loss, the Jedi's fear of Anakin betraying them only served to further alienate him and helped bring about that betrayal.
Disclaimer: Star Wars isn't mind, fool. Neither is AFI's music.

Title: A Different Light
Song: Delirium Trigger by Coheed and Cambria
Fandom: Star Wars
Summary and Notes: Anakin's fall. This is similar to my last vid, except that this is more about Anakin the person, and what he goes through, rather than what he does. It begins in amidst the destruction and pain Anakin's caused, but then stops to look back on all that has happened and how he, and Padme and Obi-Wan, have gotten where they are now. longer summary )
