My CM's Choice Award goes to Supermassive Black Hole by starryeyesxx



Supermassive Black Hole by starryeyesxx is my CM's Choice because it is a fun, cool video about one of my favorite ships, Skate! It starts out with excellent beat use, that keeps up throughout the vid. This vid tells the story of Sawyer & Kate very well. I love how the great Skate scenes are edited together. The overlay adds a very cool "look" to the vid. This is a gret song and is a great choice for this vid, it works really well!

starryeyesxx, awesome job on this! I always enjoy your vids very much!

My CM's Choice Award goes to World So Cold 2012 by TheRock420RVD.



Like I said in my comment on the vid's page, I got really excited when watching this because of all the various different fandoms involved in this vid. I thought it was fantastic the way each clip from each fandom mirrored each other and matched the lyrics perfectly. The music choice was also rockin' and the subtle beat use topped it off superbly. And the Breaking Bad clip at the end is hilarious! I'm not sure I've seen a multifandom quite like this before; it's a real pleasure to watch! Well done!

Fab job, I hope to see more of your work here in the future

My CM's Choice Award goes to Set Fire to the Third Bar by cappy



I've never seen an episode of Dexter but this vid made a huge impression on me. Between the excellent song choice and lyric interpretation, the thoughtful clip choices, the vivid imagery and stunning use of the music's ebb and flow, I really felt that Dexter's story came together really well. In just a few minutes, I felt like I understood so much about this character from his motivation to his demons, and the high stakes of his life. I think it takes a lot of talent to bring all of those elements together in such a captivating storytelling video, and to so thoroughly illustrate what's special about a fandom for someone who hasn't seen it.

Well done, cappy! Keep up the excellent vidding. I look forward to see what you come up with in 2014.

My CM's Choice Award goes to Dead Man Walking - Breaking Bad by soapbubbles511 !



I think I watched this vid just before I did my huge Breaking Bad marathon to watch the whole series, and it's videos like this one that made me want to watch it in the first place. Plus, Civil Wars to an angsty show? Perfection! The whole flow of this vid is wonderful, with the shots of the legs and walking along with Walt's quote about how he and Jesse are probably already going to hell for what they've done. And Walt was on borrowed time anyway.

Great use of Jesse scenes, too. Really showed that conflict he had with himself, it was like he was stuck in a world he couldn't handle but he had no way of getting out. And Walt made it worse. I really loved that lyric of "can't no preacher man" with Jesse doing that sort of praying thing with his hands. And as I said in my original comment, I love the clips used for the "keep walking, running, running for miles" parts, they were fabulous. And, of course, ending the vid with the beloved RV! I miss that poor damaged van

Fabulous vid, Sarah! I watch it often and it definitely sticks out in my mind as one of my favourite videos of yours, hence this CM's Choice

My CM's Choice Award goes to Let Her Go by benlinusisagoodguy!



This vid is really lovely for a lot of reasons. I adore vids that don't need a lot of flashiness or action to get their point across, and this one does exactly that! It's simple, but in a wonderful, artistic way. The coloring is beautiful, and the effects used on some of the clips of Lori - making her look ghostly and ethereal - are perfect for the tone of the video. This vid encompasses what Rick went through when he lost Lori so well. They're definitely a favorite pairing of mine, and it's so great to see them appreciated in a vid like this. The pacing of the video is fabulous as well - it starts off slow, and then picks up a little bit in the middle, but it's not so quick that the meaning is lost. An all around beautifully done video! Fantastic job, Sophie!

My CM's Choice Award goes to win one for the reaper by monia1790.



Monia's vid about the dramatic and fatal ending of a once great friendship is one of those vids that got permanently and positively stuck on my mind in the last year. Her choice of voiceovers is fantastic and the visuals are beautiful and effective but without taking away the main focus of the vid: the emotions. I really got teary-eyed towards the end, seeing how Rick's and Shane's friendship ended in a big tragedy.

Congrats, Monia, to this beautiful and emotional vid. Hope to see many new vids from you in 2014!

My CM's Choice Award goes to We Own It - GTA5 by Vidstep.



Although the fandom and song genre aren’t what I would naturally be drawn to, I’ve watched Vidstep’s vid many times over because I enjoyed it so much. It really stuck in my mind when I came to consider my CM Choice Award.

The song choice was perfect for the subject matter and worked superbly in creating such a strong atmosphere. The use of motion in the clips was such a treat to watch, helping the vid to flow so smoothly with the music.

I particularly liked how Vidstep chose to use a montage of fight scenes at the “one shot” part. The lyric interpretation was spot on thoughout the vid and I loved how it felt like the characters where taking part in the song, like at 0:21, 0:40, and 1:28. My favourite part was at 1:06, where the lyrics, clip choice, and flow of the vid melded together beautifully.

The editing was flawless and the vid seemed really well polished. It felt like it could have been an official music video or advert for the game. Congratulations, Vidstep!
