    Thank you so much for watching and giving me feedback on my vids, Oceanic! It means so much that the storytelling came through for you especially considering you don't watch the show.

    Fantastic vid! Your lyric use was fantastic. This song was so perfect for the storyline. I haven't seen this show but I was able to follow your story really well and the emotions really came through. Great job!

    Thanks Jemmz. Yeah, I experimented with dialogue clips but the ones I wanted to use just weren't clear enough. Plus, I didn't want to distract from the song lyrics.

    Beautiful tribute, cappy Shame about the dialogue clips but that's understandable when a show has lots of loud music in the background!

    Thanks so much, Kaja. I avoided using dialogue clips on this vid only because 'The 100' has a heavy background score and it's really hard to get clean clear dialogue clips. So I just focused on getting the lyrics to fit the storyline instead and of course hitting the beats in the music with climatic moments in the storytelling.

    Oh and I generally agree about the new Mumfords album, but I still bought it anyway. But 'Hot Gates' is the last song on the album and on my first listen I was like "OMG! THIS! This is what I've been waiting for!" I've been wanting to vid to it ever since, just waiting for the right fandom.

    cappy, my friend, that's a truly amazing and powerful vid!
    I love your use of the lyrics throughout the whole vid and the editing was so nice & smooth. There wasn't but one part that didn't fit or didn't work.

    And like Julia said: I, too, had goosebumps several times while watching (for examples, when the Blakes hugged to the line "but I will love you constantly" or Monty & Jasper "high fiving" when the music kicks off and the action part begins).

    So well done, you!

    PS: I didn't even know that song! I was disappointed with the few songs that I've heard from the new album and I didn't want to buy it or even listen to the rest. Maybe I should give it a try after all, because this one here is really beautiful (in a very sad way).
