Notes: Created for KRIM aka 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.
