I am SO, SO EXCITED to share my SVA thesis film at long last!!!!! This is what I spent most of the past year working on. It’s the biggest thing I’ve ever made, and I still couldn’t have done it without the help and support of a bunch of really awesome people. I strongly recommend watching it in HD and I hope you like it a lot! :)
oh damn, wow, talk about inspiring.
HOLY FUCK I DIDN’T EXPECT THAT AT ALL WOW PLEASEWATCHTHISOHMYGOODNESS IT’S UNLIKE ANYTHING I’VE SEEN BEFORE OHWOWIJUST- /SCREAMING/
I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN HEAR ME DREAMWORKS BUT YOU NEED TO ADAPT THE HELL OUT OF THIS RIGHT THE FUCK NOW
This is sooo awesome
WATCH THIS IMMEDIATELY. Just charming and perfect and lovely and oh I have tears.
Awwww! :) Very sweet and not where I thought that was going at all!
Really sweet and the art is just lovely (aaaah I love cel animation so much!)
This stunning! Kate, watch this!! You’ll love it!!
What I really appreciate about this video is that the song makes no mention of the woman’s trans* status; they could have easily done something different with this video, and had Matt’s love interest be cis.
But no, she’s trans*, and most importantly, Character!Matt doesn’t care. They meet, they flirt, they sleep together, they talk over breakfast and clearly have a connection. That’s what matters, not the fact that this woman wasn’t born with a vagina.
THIS IS A BIG DEAL YOU GUYS
God, I didn’t think I needed more reasons to love Matt Nathanson but apparently now I have some.
okay wow this is super cute
i don’t think i’ve ever in my life seen any form of media where there is a trans woman as a love interest who isn’t treated like a freak, isn’t made into a weird fetish object, AND LIVES THROUGH THE ENTIRE THING
and suddenly here it is
i mean its not totally perfect in every way (the “unveiling” of her trans status to the viewers made me cringe a little) but the fact that she’s trans, he knows she’s trans, and it has no bearing on whether he’s into her is just
its fucking nice to see something positive for once
PLUS THE AUDIENCE JUST APPLAUDS AND THERE’S NO GROSS REACTION SHOTS OF PEOPLE GASPING AND I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS
In class today, we had a lovely discussion how the psychology of color, the ideology of stereotypical color assignment, and how it all relates in cinema and the success of movies depending on the societies creating movies and the societies viewing those movies and used this video as an example of the societal norm of “girls only like sweet, pink, sensitive things”. It was very insightful and got the class out of taking a quiz.
Also, Jesus fuck we need more advertisements like this.
Man, this song just played on my Galaxie radio station, and it took me way back. I wish teen me understood the significance of these words back then. The advice still holds true, and are pretty profound to have found their way into a Baz Lurhmann song. Huh.
I forgot about this gem! Proud to say I’ve totally followed the sun screen one…but don’t look at my belly in the sun, you’ll go snow blind.
I'm a Toronto woman on the ass-end of 25. I like to bake, sketch pointless crap, ponder my Christian identity, live vicariously through really stupid television, revel in horn-doggery, and indulge my incredibly nerdy identity - the one I thought I grew out of.
I enjoy my job, I'm working on getting fit, and I lost my 25 year old sister to MELAS in 2011. So - here's to life.
