I think this was actually the hardest vid I have ever made. For three reasons: a) I was dealing with more serious subject matter then what I normally do, b) the vid just wouldn't cooperate with letting me get clips down on the timeline and c) RL stress did not help at all.

But I actually think I am happy with it now, especially seeing other people's responses to it.

I really do love Misfits as a show although to me it has a number of problems. One of them being it's treatment and portrayal of Alisha. What I tried to explore was the way the show itself treats Alisha at a narrative level and the way her power relates to her, which to my mind neither of which are done in a positive way by the show.

But the vid is done! Now I can now look back on it and actually enjoy watching it instead of worrying about my clip placement! And thank you so much to all my betas who put up with my freaking out about this vid :) You all made me feel much better in the end.

Also, to pimp myself, tell me about a vid I haven't made and I will make a tiny vidlet from it and keep calm and vid on, a vidding tshirt venture where all profits go to charity!

Really guttering exploration of Alisha and what her power means to her(not to mention how it's handled on the show). Thanks so much for this.
