Tonight, Tonight from bradcpu on Vimeo.

This was my first time doing Festivids, and I really wanted to give it my best - especially considering who I was assigned! So I only ended up doing one vid.

"Hook" was the only fandom on which jarrow and I matched, but I love the movie's message about recapturing innocence through fantasy. I remember seeing the movie in theaters when it was released - I was in my 20s - and enjoyed it... But then on rewatching it recently, I was much more moved by what it said about the relationship between parents and kids. Also, a lot of things about the movie reminded me of the things I love about John.

He said he wanted a vid that captured the movie's heart, so that's what I tried to do as best I could.

Time is never time at all
You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth
And our lives are forever changed
We will never be the same
The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me
That life can change
that you're not stuck in vain
We're not the same, were different tonight
Tonight, so bright

And you know you're never sure
But you're sure you could be right
If you held yourself up to the light
And the embers never fade in the city by the lake
The place where you were born.

Believe, believe in me
In the resolute urgency of now
And if you believe there's not a chance tonight
Tonight, so bright

We'll crucify the insincere tonight
We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
We'll find a way to offer up the night tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me as I believe in you

Thanks for watching!
