VID: Hook and Line [Superman--Fleischer Studios] 
21st-Jan-2011 12:18 am
SV--S1 promo (S on chest)

Title: Hook and Line
Artist: The Kills
Vidder: abby82
Source: Superman cartoons, Fleischer Studios (1941, 1942)
Download: Sendspace (25.21 MB, WMV), YouTube (streaming)
Length: 2:10 minutes
Summary: Just another day at the office.
Notes: Created for KRIM aka [personal profile] chagrined for festivids 2010 vid exchange challenge (official pinch hit). I participated in last year's festivids challenge but I didn't sign up this year's. I checked online around the new year and scanned the 'dear festividder' letters for a possible treats prompt. KRIM's prompt stood out as one that was totally feasible and filled with fun possibilities. Then KRIM's prompts went up as a pinch hit the day vids were due and just two weeks shy of the golive date. Before I knew it, I was claiming it as my own and went from contemplating to actually doing. This vid has the fast turnaround period of any vid I've ever done. It's far from perfect but there's no denying that the source was a lot of fun to play with. The animation is stunning. There were so many clips that I'd earmarked for use in the vid that sadly didn't make it in. Oh, for a different, longer song! Clark with the fedora is sexy and I love that he isn't depicted as bumbling reporter Clark Kent. And Lois! OMG Lois! I adore her in all incarnations and Fleischer!Lois is no exception. She's ballsy, succeeding in a man's world, and all while maintaining her femininity. And Superman...oh Superman you are wonderful and good and soo mysterious. Hopefully the perfect song will some day land on my lap and I can have another go at this gorgeous source because it deserves more attention. Also, is it weird that I want to write/read Fleischer Superman fanfic because I totally do.

The original festivids post is here.

Whoop whoop, sorry this is such an immensely late comment! For some reason I thought I'd already downloaded both the vids made for me, but then went to watch them off my hard drive and realized I hadn't! So I came a-hunting. I loved this vid a lot. It was totally the vid I had always pictured for these cartoons! I loved the song even though I wasn't familiar with it, and OH SO MUCH AWESOME LOIS AND SUPERMAN! It was great. Thank you so much for making this for me. I am downloading and will treasure it always. <3 AND IF YOU EVER MAKE ANOTHER VID TO THIS SOURCE I WILL BE SUPER PSYCHED! :D I tried to vid it once but for some reason my idea just wouldn't work out.

Haha, as a postscript, I did once write a fic for these cartoons... Possibly the only one? Haha idk. But idk if you would want to read it. XD It's very short and it's Perry White/Superman dub-con, erm. So that's kind an odd thing. XD XD But if you are interested, I'll link you, lol.

Hi - I'd really like to see the vid but the SendSpace download link has expired. And my dial-up connection means that streaming vids via YouTube is impossible. I did check your website but this year's Festivid isn't listed, so no joy there.

I do like your website page for the vids, by the way. Clean, well organized, good graphics, and with all the info I look for when deciding to download a vid. Seriously, I appreciate the full info more than I can say; it drives me nuts but so many vidders don't include info - even basics like size! And the nice layout with dates makes it easy to check that I've downloaded all the vids and not missed any.

Would you be willing to post a new download link? I would very much appreciate it.

For some reason, I can’t see all of this content, stuff keeps hiding? Are you taking advantage of java?

That is really helpful. It provided me a number of ideas and I'll be placing them on my web site eventually. I'm bookmarking your blog and I'll be back. Thanks again!
