Festivids 2016: Get Better
Fandom: Hawkeye v4 (2012-2015, Matt Fraction)
Music: Get Better by Frank Turner
Summary: I'm trying to get better because I haven't been my best.
Length: 1:52

Notes: This was my first time ever vidding a still source! Getting the assignment was very intimidating (even though elipie's letter was very sweet and encouraging!) and I almost committed to making a Nightwing vid before I stumbled onto this song pretty much by chance. Once I had the song, the whole concept really clicked for me. Then it was just hours and hours of GIMP and trying to match cuts to beats. After starting out completely at a loss, I ended up with a bunch of ideas I couldn't include for time reasons, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Love this vid! I want to reblog it to tumblr, is it going to be posted there at all?

Hi, omg thank you so much for this vid!! I am absolutely floored that this is your first time vidding still source, and am so glad you decided to take a chance, because you really did an incredible job with this!

I can't even tell you how many times I've watched this since go-live. It's an absolute delight. Thank you <3333

I LOVE THIS VIDEO SO MUCH AAAAHH. I will be re-watching this for a long while. I am superimpressed with how you editing the still source, since that seems so intimidating to me.

This vid still makes me so happy! I don't even know how many times I've watched it now.

Continuing greatness in the beautifully paced editing.

Is there by any chance going to be a downloadable version? I saw this on Tumblr and it just fucking floored me and I want to put it in my little folder of vids to watch when I am sad and don't have internet.

this is fucking awesome. It reminds me of the Take On Me video, but with a better song

Aww, the Hawkeyes :) This is great.

I was linked here from a rec post and I can't stop replaying this vid! You match the beats of the track and the tone to the images so well. This song is permenantly linked to Fraction & Aja & all's Hawkeye for me now. So good!


We're excited to let you know that we are planning on showing your vid at the Con.Txt 2018 vid show. Con.Txt is a fan convention held in Washington, D.C. the weekend of July 27th through 29th. Do you happen to have a download of this vid available in a 720p or higher resolution?
