This video won viewer's choice aswell as judges choice in the So you think you can vid "No Effects" challenge! I wanted to thank every single one that voted for me. You guys really rock my world. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my perspective on the so-called "unlove story" of Irene Adler and Sherlock Holmes... So much chemistry & tension between the two I could explode!

I made this for the "no effects" challenge of SYTYCV so there are no colourings or fancy effects on this one just plain simple "raw editing".

I dedicate this little vidlet to Karina aka ImmortalSparrow and the best thing is that she has no idea! She was the one person that got me interested in BBC Sherlock because she posted a very funny gif on tumblr. Thanks for making me watch the show. It's mindblowing!

Here's the absolutely MINDBLOWING review by the judges of the contest:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My god, talk about an impressive, gripping, beautifully constructed piece of art. This video pulled at your heart in all the right places. The use of clips is literally outstanding. There are no words for how wonderfully put together we found this video. The way the clips are placed, the pacing of them along with the music is beastly. The song was gorgeous and the musicality was even more so gorgeous, and that's really saying something since the piece is almost a simple story with no lyrics. The storytelling was phenomenal. How the scenes were all interlaced and put in order really gave such a heart-wrenching feeling. This all goes so well together because we find that good musicality usually has good storytelling as they both work almost as one. The musical piece and the footage connected to each other in a way that says the structure of the video is completely solid and that is something that is hard to find in videos these days. Your concept and overall theme were so strong that nothing in the video felt by accident. It was all done with exact purpose. Sherlock reflecting on whats happened really allowed us to understand what you were portraying. There was no doubt about what this video was about and from the first frame to the last the storytelling was so strong it's as if we know the fandom just by this simple outlook on it. Your perception of this is mind blowing. The hand touching (my favourite part with the hands is when Sherlock lifts his and when it comes down its an embrace... fantastic) and the clips placed back and forth are so well done they really help on the emotional level. The videos sense of symbolism and the use of such subtle clips like Irene's make-up and the hands, give off such depth and special meaning that one feels moved to the core. It's an intelligent interpretation and those types really give you something to think about. The voice-overs were also fantastically done, mentioning him not eating and writing love songs? Excellent -- it enhanced the viewers understanding very well. Even though you used an instrumental, you used it to its full advantage by incorporating voice overs. These voice overs allowed for deeper exploration and in turn understanding of the story you were telling. There is not one thing I could or would ever change in your entry. Your overall presentation with the combination of your storytelling, musicality and technicality were above par. This video is an emotional beauty. Congratulations on viewers choice and a judges choice!
