Notes: This vid happened because I have an incredibly literal mind. It is not a particularly literal vid, but it started because I was listening to a Songza playlist and Regina Spektor's "All the Rowboats" came on and I thought, "Rowboats. Rowboats... Fredo. Technically a motorboat? Still..." I listened to the song again. And again. And again. And it was so obviously a song about Michael Corleone. The song/fandom match went down on my list of "Things I want to make." I offered the fandom for Festivids and I was incredibly lucky that [ profile] crowie specifically asked for the vid that was running circles around my head. 

Regarding the vid itself, I don't have very much to say. The feedback I have received -- in comments and rec posts and privately from the people who I showed the vid ahead of time -- has been above and beyond what I could have anticipated. I am just so pleased that what I put out there has been received and understood (sometimes even beyond the understanding I have of it).

Thank you so much to my betas, [ profile] bradcpu , [personal profile] absolutedestiny , and [personal profile] thirdblindmouse . Thank you [personal profile] fan_eunice for being my cheerleader. Thank you [ profile] crowie for requesting this wonderful film series so that I could make a vid that desperately wanted to get made.

I really liked this. (Should maybe have been more obvious who did it in retrospect, given the Martin Scorsese vid?) Will have to check out those other recs/descriptions you mention so I can better understand what's been done here, since I barely know the movies.

It's funny you should say that, because I'm not so much a gangster movie fan. Goodfellas and The Godfather movies are about it for me.

As for the recs, it's been really weird? Like they'll note something and I'm like, "Really?" I have no idea what a good portion of them are talking about.
