I found myself going into VividCon vidding season without any firm plan for premieres, or any other show. To be frank, I didn't really think I would be making a vid this year since I was busy with the baby, my concon duties and work.

Then one day, while doing reports for work I had the tv in the background and "The Martian" came on... And I actually to log off my work server and watch the movie. Halfway through the movie, I was like "I have to vid this".

The optimism of this movie really resonated with me, and I tried to find a song that had the same type of hope while also reflecting the horrible situation that he found himself in. I really tried to fight the song because it got so much radio play... but it just worked so well.

I'm happy with the result, and the fact that it spoke to so many people at the con.  made me cry at vid review in a very good way, and I never knew there were so many The Martian (mostly the book!) fans. This was really a lesson i just vidding what my heart tells me to vid nd not take premieres plans so seriously all the time, because you never know what will resonate with others!
