Oh, gorgeous! <3

ETA: The rhythm of the clip at 0:45 fills me with delight, in particular.

This is a thing of beauty. Joy! It kind of fits the season, too. Lovely :)

Thank you! :) The song was actually billed as a holiday song by the band, although I suppose the only real reference is the "rooftops strung with light." But it definitely has a holiday feel to me.

Awesome :)

Did you export through MPEG Streamclip for this one? I'm in awe of the quality of your vid, considering the source :)

Thanks. :)

I did! Thanks for the advice. It looks much better than iMovie's export did.

I'm in awe of the quality of your vid, considering the source :)

Hehe, yeah, 75-year-old source can be a little grainy and jittery, although the prints used for the "ultimate collector's edition" discs that I have are quite good, considering.

Oh my goodness, this was gorgeous and it gave me chills. I also was a little teary-eyed at the end and let out a spontaneous "awww." Beautiful!
icepixie
Dec. 15th, 2011 09:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you! The ending of the song made me pretty teary the first few times I heard it, so I'm very pleased that the vid got the same kind of reaction from you at the end. :)

They were grace personified, even if Rita Hayworth WAS his favorite partner.

I just love them. Wish my own dancing was even a tenth as expressive.

Beautiful! I'd been listening to this song a lot the last couple days and thinking that it would make a lovely vid and here--vid! :)
icepixie
Dec. 15th, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)
Hehehe! Yeah, I started vidding this, um, the same afternoon I bought the track. I think I'd only listened to it a couple times before this vid bunny came up and demanded to be made. I just love how much this song--and Hem's music in general--evokes the standards of the early twentieth century, and pairing it with this source seemed so perfect. I'm glad you liked the vid! :)

I wish I'd had time to watch this earlier. ♥ This is amazing. I have to watch this at least 8 more times before I go to bed, now. You're making amazing progress as a vidder. I'm loving the punctuation of their arms and feet at 1:06, the clip at 1:17 is brilliant, o:45 is just delightful, and the way I could actually picture someone doing this entire routine strung together is beautiful. In short: wow. ♥♥♥♥♥♥

(P.S. - I got your card in the mail. Thank you! There's a little something on its way to you, now!)

Awww, thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and OMG yay feedback with timecodes! :D I was so proud of myself when I figured out what to do at 1:17 (it took a while), I cannot even tell you. ;)

(P.S. - I got your card in the mail. Thank you! There's a little something on its way to you, now!)

Oh, good! I've never sent something to Spain before; I was wondering how long it would take. And I look forward to your card! :)

That was so delightful! I always think that it must be so difficult to vid people dancing from various sources to a different song--this makes it look so seamless and effortless (which I am sure it was not!). Thank you for sharing!
icepixie
Dec. 16th, 2011 04:20 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm really glad this looks seamless and effortless to you. Vidding their dances is actually not as difficult as it might seem at first glance; lucky for me, they vary a lot in tempo and always have some interesting movement going on at all times. :)

How beautiful! The song is so light and airy, just like Fred & Ginger's dancing! Loved this!

Thank you! I'm really pleased by how well the song suits them as well. :)
