vid title: Cylon Runner
audio: Blade Runner: The Final Cut trailer
source: Battlestar Galactica
duration: 1:06
summary: Faux Battlestar Galactica trailer using Blade Runner
notes: When planning out what I wanted to do with each of challenges, I knew I wanted to create a faux trailer for challenge 06 - hybrid. I've noticed a recurring cross-pollination among my interest in robots. Earlier this year I created a Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles vid, Does Cameron Dream of Electric Sheep?, which was a reference to the book, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the basis for Blade Runner.

Through conversations with other members of the community, it became apparent that Blade Runner was the obvious choice. Battlestar Galactica certainly owes a great deal to Blade Runner in terms of theme and idea. They both deal with implanted memories, vague questioning of being human, love, and other aspects. With the Cylon, they have their own culture, faith, justice, ideas, and history. They are not human, but what is so wonderful about being human? Why is it so important that we consider and question whether the Cylon are "more human than human"? As [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria has mentioned, the difference between Battlestar Galactica and Blade Runner was the nature of the robots. For her, the existence of replicants never "clouded what it actually meant to be human". I thought about that for a bit because I agreed, yet I think that while the existence of robots don't always call the essence of humanity into question, they at least can make humanity question themselves.

I had almost completed the vid and was in need of static source. Everyone in The Know knows to go to [livejournal.com profile] bradcpu for static source, but he was luckily out the door to VVC. I was still debating what to name the fake trailer. [livejournal.com profile] projectjulie sent me a friend request on imeem, which then made me watch everything on her account. I found her season three BSG vblog in which she refers to an aspect of BSG, Cylon Runner, so Bang! there's my title.

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.
