Best. New Moon Video. Ever.

I was trying to write something cheeky about last night's Twilight-watching comment blitzkrieg but I came across this video instead and am totally choked up and gushy now.

If this vid doesn't make you want to run out right this very moment and get in line to wait for the New Moon dvd to be released or maybe find out where they are being manufactured and hopping a plane there so you can steal one early, then you should check your pulse. Because SkyAstrid has mad editing skillz and the song is perfect and I LOVE IT so I am just going to shut up and let you watch it so that you can get all teary over your Wheaties and coffee, too.

Watch full-screen in HD if you can!



When you're done sobbing and you've cleaned up, here's some eye-candy from twilightsHorizons. You're welcome! [don't forget HD!]

  2. What a beautiful video. I especially love the beginning, and how she incorporated the painful present with memories.

    I am still jealous over not being able to watch Twilight last night with you. I nearly fainted and turned green when I saw this morning that there were over 1000 comments on your blog, LoL. JK - so glad you all had a good time. Why can't we in Europe be as organized as you guys, sigh.

  3. Beautiful video! Hey... I have a question... I'm so torn. I have no idea which DVD set to buy. There's too many to choose from... which ones are you all getting?

    w/v "recoms" How fitting! What New Moon DVD set recoms do you have for me?? =)

  4. Morning lllllaadddiies!

    Glad you enjoyed the vid - I really thought it was boo-ful!!

    @Jelena - it was FUN! and exhausting - lol...

    @C.c.Clifford - uhh... we'll probably end up buying a couple of different versions between JJ and myself - that's what we did for the Twilight dvd. It sucks big-time that they do all these separate "special" editions so you feel the need to buy multiple copies, but I'm sunk - I need them all! I bough three different Teilight dvds...

    : )

  5. @STY - hah! I totally didn't even think of that. Hell yeah! Buy them all! Why not...I've already spent a fortune on my twi-swag...what's a couple hundred more. =P

    I like how you Twiwaffles think... =)

  6. Thanks for the video - the editing was Twitacular - definitely better than most.

    My favorite part last night - my friend's daughter was over and watching along with us and afterward I asked her about the movie (she's 10 and very bright. She told me she liked it, but it was "strange because I kept laughing at parts that really weren't funny" - Because I was on my laptop laughing at everyone.

    Can't wait for NW chat along, but I think I'll fly solo for that one.

    : )

  11. Sorry to the peeps who may have gotten kicked off when I added the second video! *ducks*

    : )

    (you'll totally thank me though)

  12. This video reminds me so much of a beautiful silent movie. Really moving.

  13. Wow...I need a hanky! As ATXgal76 said, "the editing was Twitacular"

    So bummed I missed last night. I hope there will be a group watching of New Moon when it comes out next month!

  14. *giggleblush* thanks for the eye candy...

  15. That is a beautiful video. Love the track! Bring on March 20!!!

  16. Gorgeous!! (That goes for both videos, *wink*) Less than a month until the DVD - I'm super excited. I liked the New Moon movie better than the Twilight one; closer to the book = more satisfying.
    Happy Saturday!

  17. Oh my gosh that video was absolutely beautiful! Gah.... *sigh* A nice focus on what is the heart of the whole saga–Bella & Edward's love. *sigh*

    I hate that they put out so many different DVD packages. I am a "bonus features" nerd--any DVD I buy, if there is a "deluxe version" with special features I always go for that one. Last time I got both the Target and Borders version and looks like I probably will this time around as well. I try to use gift cards, and credit card bonus points–this way I can justify getting both but not spending so much. LOL :)

    Do any other movies release their DVDs this way with 600 versions?? I've not heard of any...? It's ridiculous!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gorgeous video! Thanks for posting.

    I'm also curious as to which New Moon versions everyone's going for.

  19. That video was gorgeous and Muse the perfect soundtrack....had to watch it a few times......so funny how fans seem to improve the original (books, movies)that I enjoy so much more! @cherbella - agree with you 100%, the vid distilled the movie to what we all want to see anyway....Edward & Bellas's love story.....and @snarkier, so funny, I didn't even realize Jacob was NOT in it until you mentioned it! Damn, I wish we were closer to Eclipse!

    Oh and a warning for those seeing Remember Me....Perez Hilton posted a huge spoiler so avoid his site like the plague if you don't want to know.

  20. That is one of the best videos I have ever seen. I love how it matches perfectly to the music. Wow. That is getting added to my favorites immediately. Thank you for sharing it.

    I went with the Borders pre-order as I like the necklace they are offering with the movie. For me, I figure alot of the extra footage stuff will probably end up on the internet for free eventually.

  21. Woah. That was fuckawesome. Both vids. I'm pissed I was out here in the PacNW while you were all watching Twilight, but I did read through all of the comments this morning (which made it feel like I was watching the movie)! 1000+? Jesus fucksuck...impressive! And I think I freaked out the dog a few times with my random bursts-o-laughter. It would have been infinitely better to go through in real-time.

    PS my verification word is matings. Booyakasha.

  22. Ha! The second video didn't show up on my computer the first time. So my original comment above is for the Redemption video only :) Just clarifying.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow - glad I came back here! That 2nd one is good too!!

    wv - unlylik. - it looks like unladylike. Which well....

    ReplyDelete
  24. OK---I haven't seen the second video yet b/c I rushed to the comments after the first one because I didn't want to lose my train of thought...
    I am made of stone and a little bit of ice but I swear that video may have been better than the actual movie and I melted. OK...back up to the second video now.

    ReplyDelete
  25. OK...back again. The second video definitely cleansed the palet and now I am back to being the hard as nails whore I was before the first video. Phew. That was a close one...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks for the vids - both are awesome! The first one was absolutely beautiful and I too didn't realize that it lacked Jacob until I say STY's comment, but yes - that is definitely one of the reasons it really spoke to me. Plus, you could just feel their heartbreak *sigh*.

    The second vid I just watched with a huge smile on my face and my hands covering my mouth *guh* so good! I have the Rob-lying-sideways-on-the-floor-black-&-white pic as my iPhone background and I'm now inspired to change it if I can find some of the seriously yummy pics that were used in that video. ;)
    Thanks again for also hosting the Twilight viewing last night, so much fun! I can't wait to watch NM with you guys. :) And as for the DVDs I've already bought the Walmart special edition with Eclipse footage, the Borders special edition (to match my Twilight one) and the Amazon one (which I wish I hadn't, but it was the first I bought and just couldn't help myself). Haha.

    Anyone thanks again ladies!

  27. Wouldn't let me open the first one...said there was an error.

    Pffft....

    LOVE the second one! Great editing and great song! It was my ex's and my theme song when it was out....

    But anyway...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow, I love the first vid, it's magical, really poignant. It really captures the New Moon spirit in a nutshell. Beautiful! Thanks a million for posting it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Both videos are just beautiful. First one had me snotty, the second has me thinking dirty thoughts. Damn that guy fucks with my brain. And my lady bits.

    Thanks for posting both!

  30. Oh lord. Nice vids... And congrats on last night, you should be in Guinnes world records with all those comments. I read all of them today, effing hilarious!

    Anyhoo, I need everyones help. I'm writing this fanfic, and since I'm swedish I need some good alternative words for boobs and vagina. They don't teach you those words at school, ya know... All you twitards are the best at finding good words, so please?

  32. Holy wet undies...really, that's all that comes to mind.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ha ha ha!! I am a big user of "Holy-(insert your favorite word or expletive here)" phrases, but "Holy Wet Undies" is a new one I've not heard before. I think I will need to add it to my repetoire. LOVE it! :) LOL

  36. Holy shit...that 4 minute video was better than the actual 2 hour movie!

    LOVED IT :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. That first video is just great, it almost made me tear up a little. I almost agree that it was better than the whole movie.

    ReplyDelete
  38. "I could do that!" Just kidding.

    I use Sony Vegas Pro, and I could technically have done what you did. The compositing, changing the speed, the timing, the extraction of the most important elements of the story are done so adroitly.

    I would NEVER have had the creativity, to do what you have done here.

    Here is a metaphor: Just because I know how to push the button of a "point 'n shoot" camera doesn't make one an artist like you are.

    I can imagine the hours you spent creating this masterpiece. It is truly outstanding. The timing of the actions with the music stuns me.

    When she kisses Edward at the stroke of twelve, I HAVE TO SMILE IN RELIEF. The tension has built to such a level at that point, one needs relief.

    Several comments of prior to this have mentioned that this is better than the movie. In many ways, it is. You should feel proud of what you have done. Thanks
