Fanvid of the Week: “Fly You Fools”

Vidder: beautifullytragic6

This vidder is one of my favorites on the web. I first discovered her for her Sherlock promos (which you haven’t seen, please check them out) and I fell in love with her for her beautifully smooth editing and artistic eye.

This vid is a flawlessly edited mashup of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The vidder does a fantastic job of drawing out the parallels between the two film series, and as the films are very close to my Tolkienite heart, I immediately got a little misty-eyed.

Enjoy, my fannish friends.
