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.  )

It was kind of a war with the footage, but I'm pretty happy with the end result. This is in response to [livejournal.com profile] thearchive2's tenth challenge: broadcast. And yes, the audio distortions are deliberate!

Spoilers: Through 4.01 He That Believeth In Me.
Precis: [livejournal.com profile] cyborganize and [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria were created by man other humans. They rebelled. They evolved. And they have a plan.

Which is to steal video footage from the latest Battlestar Galactica episode and audio from the Prelinger Archives and create our own archive of 30 second deadly serious crack vids that will catalogue the season against the backdrop of our own technological history.

Or, less pretentiously, look! It's thirty seconds of BSG to 1950s sponsored movies! It's awesome!
