This is a trilogy of vids reclaiming BSG's mythology, theology and mysticism and the interconnected women at the center of it all.  These vids together attempt to present the Opera House from various angles and to capture what it meant to and for different women. Post-finale and its profane Opera House, they also collectively present a reconceptualization of the Opera House as the intersection between life and death and between human and Cylon, representing hybridity in infinite variations: intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical. The third vid, especially, is based on edits made by Battlestar Redactica, a fan-edited alternate 4.5 by [livejournal.com profile] cvm_productions. See here for a short explanation of edits relevant to and relied on by the vid and here for a textual explanation of all this, outlined by [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria, my compatriot in all this Opera House reclaiming.

You will lead them all to their end. End of line.  )

vid title: Natalie Has Seen Things
audio: Blade Runner: The Final Cut
video source: Battlestar Galactica
duration: 1:09
summary: My elaboration on Natalie's death.
notes: challenge 09 - projection. In reply to [livejournal.com profile] heyiya's BSG meta and vid playlist, I was reminded of my own personal reading between Battlestar Galactica and Blade Runner. "[Lum's More Human Than Human] is part of what sparked my own obsession with the Cylon. Blade Runner was one of the first movies I remember watching as a child. I was so engaged by the ideas of "robots" as a child. The idea that they could be so similar to humans, but not be considered on the same level blew my young mind. So when I watched Lum's vid that used the White Zombie track that was based on Blade Runner, my love was crystallized." Within that same thread, we discussed the shared consciousness and individualism among the Cylon. I wanted to address many things within a short duration. One being that despite being in a different location, the Hybrid new when Natalie was shot. Rather transparently I wanted to show that without the ability to download, Natalie's memories and experience are lost to the collective. There are other vague references, but this is the most I've ever rambled in the notes of a vid post, so I'm stopping because there has to be room for expansion for the viewer.
