ugh, this fight scene absolutely slays me. It's just so unbelievably sexy and epic and all of the characters are putting in equal billing and looking out for each others backs, totally in sync with each other. Even in the background of other peoples shots, the other characters are killing it (pun intended!) - which impresses me because you'd think for scheduling reasons it would be easier to just use stand-ins. Of course my favourite background moment probably has to be this outstandingly ungrateful bystander who only barely bats an eyelid at the onslaught :P

Now I just want to emphasise how much I love this shot. Tabrett is so on, it really encapsulates everything I love about her and the show into about half a second. It doesn't work that well as a still frame or even a gif, but in the context of the episode - chills

haha I still don't get your obsession with this particular fight scene, sorry. Not that it isn't awesome, but it's not particularly MORE awesome than the other awesome fight scenes for me. (unlike,say, the beginning scene of 2x07) But I do really love that first gif! (and that last one, LOL THE BYSTANDER)

and yes, it's amazing how they get everyone to keep on fighting in the background with every fight scene. They either work with a lot of cameras and an impossibly skilled choreographer so it's done in one take, or they make the actors re-act their fights just for a blurry shot in the background. IT'S CRAZY AND I LOVE THEM FOR IT.

the big thing for me is the attractiveness of the cast. When they're doing the slow-motion fighting in other episodes, often they'll have really awkward (and probably a lot more genuine, come to think of it :P) fighting expressions, but when they do the slow-motion here I think they look the best they've ever looked (i.e. Kahlen in this frame)

I was always very impressed with Friends because they'd often have the other actors in the background essentially being used as extras and I'm sure it would've been a lot more time-efficient to just leave them out but it feels so much more geniune

It's pretty awesome. Especially the first one! all the swishyness is amazzinggg. *misses Kahlan's white outfit*

ps. can you put it behind a cut? My internet is being slow at the moment and four gifs isn't helping :(

I know what you mean, I miss the white dress so much :( I can't take Kahlen seriously as this pure, etherial creature without it

ah shoot, sorry! I meant to cut it but I forgot ._.

Can't stop looking at the gifs.

Pretty gifs are pretty! ;) Your coloring is incredible!
Now I'm asking for some pretty Cara icons! :p
Joshblueymcphluey on April 8th, 2010 12:46 pm (UTC)
:D thankyou. ugh, I can't believe how few Cara icons I've made, given my extreme levels of obsession. I could turn frames of my gifs into icons if you want :D

I wish someone would make an icon challenge community for 'lots'...hint...hint... :p
