this performance has to be gif

‘Orphan Black’ has revolutionized TV visual effects, and you probably haven’t noticed half of them

Orphan Black debuts its fifth and final season on June 10, and while the show will always be remembered for introducing us to the incredible, multifaceted performances of star Tatiana Maslany — who has brought almost a dozen clones to life over the course of the series — some of its greatest achievements are moments that you never realized you saw.

Visual Effects Supervisor Geoff Scott and his team at Intelligent Creatures have been in charge of bringing Clone Club to life across the show’s 50 episodes, and like a magician performing up-close tricks, much of their work is designed to be invisible.

In a TV landscape where viewers are used to screenshotting their favorite scenes to search for clues, this visual sleight-of-hand becomes even more impressive. Suspending our disbelief for dragons or zombies is one thing, but every one of the visual effects in Orphan Black needs to be indistinguishable from reality, and it’s a feat that truly takes a village.

Guys can we just talk about lexa’s little shoulder strap thing for a second. What is the point of it?

Never once have we seen Lexa use it to block an attack and it literally only covers one of her shoulders

The only purpose of it really is her hold her little red sash, which she has draped over her head numerous times

Especially in this scene like what does she use it for? After her extra performance as a slave girl with a limp, she literally just has gustus place it on her shoulder so she can strap it all badass and make her revel more dramatic

Once again we have stumbled on another example of how commander lexa is the most extra person known to mankind

Matsoukas had two days to shoot Beyoncé, between her rehearsals for the Super Bowl. She devised a scene of Beyoncé performing on top of a squad car, as it slowly sank into the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina. “I wanted it to be a police car to show that they hadn’t really shown up for us,” she told me. “And that we were still here on top, and that she was one with the people who had suffered.” She shot the scene on a Los Angeles soundstage, with an artificial lake backed by a blue screen made to look like New Orleans. A crane on a barge suspended a camera overhead while a lift lowered the police car, and Beyoncé, into the water. Matsoukas operated another camera from a speedboat. “Everyone was scared, because the water was cold,” she said. “And Miss Tina”—Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles—“is calling me, like, ‘You’re going to give her pneumonia, and she has to perform at the Super Bowl.’ ” Beyoncé, who was wearing a wetsuit under her clothes, didn’t complain.

be my love (baekhyun)
word count: 1330 w.
genre: fluff, unfair performance au
summary:  baekhyun creates havoc in the doctor’s lounge when he wore a stethoscope, scrubs, and a doctor’s coat.

A short beep sounded from your coat’s pocket. You scrabbled your pocket to get your phone. A message notification showed on the screen.

Watch Music Core today~ ^^

You rolled your eyes and went back to work.

“Please don’t leave. It’s boring in the hospital but it’s fun when you’re around, noona!” Jisung pleaded, his grip tightening around your wrist. You chuckled as you lowered down to his level.

“I’ll be doing my rounds later at six. Don’t worry, you’ll see me again.” You gave him a warm smile before ruffling his hair.

“You promise?” He asked. The sparkle in the boy’s eyes made you want to say ‘yes’ even if you’re probably a little busy come six in the evening.

“I promise.” Jisung wrapped his tiny arms around your neck. You were careful not to tangle the tube of his IV.

When you closed the door to his room, the head nurse popped her head from the common room. She waved her hand signaling you to come quickly. “You’re gonna miss their performance! Run!”

You walked briskly because running on the halls of the hospital would deem unprofessional as a medical resident. That would exclude those assigned at the emergency room, of course. When you arrived, your hair was disheveled, sticking out at different directions. All the nurses circled the flat screen TV. They flashed a smile of mischief when you sat on your desk.

“What’s all the fuss about?” You tried to catch your breath. You looked at the TV only to find Music Core on the channel.

Just when you were about to complain why they made you hurry, an unfamiliar tune started playing. Your eyes caught the song’s title named, “Unfair”.

“Where are the other four members?” One of the nurses questioned, her hands fanning her face when Jongin appeared on the screen. She turned to you, a playful smirk placed on her face. “Where’s Baekhyun?”

“B-Baekhyun who?” You averted your eyes on the ground.

The head nurse nudged your side. “Oh, you know. The Baekhyun who keeps on visiting you when he has the time away from his idol activities. The one who keeps joining you for coffee everyday with a mask on his face even if you didn’t ask.”

You felt heat creep to your cheeks at the thought of Baekhyun’s persistence on catching your heart.

“Speaking of Baekhyun,” the head nurse turned her head back to the TV the exact moment Baekhyun started singing his line.

If you already know, please stop playing around. I’m getting more and more lost in you.

You can’t believe Baekhyun sported the whole doctor attire for this stage. From the bluish purple scrubs to the stethoscope. On the side of that, his golden brown hair stuck out in different directions as well. You found it completely irresistible when Baekhyun looked up and patted his face with the stethoscope.

“OH MY GOD” The head nurse covered her mouth with her hands. Girly screams sounded all over the common room because Byun Baekhyun was in freaking scrubs and a doctor suit all because of you.

Am I being selfish? Your eyes, your nose, your lips, I want to be the only one that looks at you. Am I being too greedy?

You were pretty sure your heart was about to escape out of your chest. You placed a hand over your chest. You weren’t sure if the song was for you because you didn’t want to assume. Maybe it was just another EXO love song everyone seems to love.

“Is he confessing on live TV?!” Your attending physician, the one in charge of you, popped her head through the door.

You sighed, “You too, Dr. Kwon?”

“It’s seldom we get some medical romance here, alright? Let me have my fun.” She said before joining the rest of the nurses in watching EXO’s performance.

“The song couldn’t be about me, okay. I’m sure this is another song to have women like you swoon over them. It’s a media tactic.” You said, matter-of-factly.

Girl, girl, be my love. We drank coffee everyday.

“Are you sure it ain’t about you?” One of the nurses questioned, arms crossed over her chest. “I beg to differ.”

Girl, girl, be my love. We talked for a long time on the phone every night.

Your fellow resident clasped her hands together as if she connected two and two together. “So that’s why when I sleep at the doctor’s quarters at midnight, there’s always someone whispering and giggling on the top deck.”

“C'mon, you two are perfect for each other. The boy’s obviously head over heels for you. He’s been courting you for almost a year and you still won’t answer him.” Your attending physician said as she leaned back on the chair.

A series of ’yeah’ and ’why won’t you answer him’ filled the room. You honestly don’t know why as well. It’s just that balancing your profession and relationships were a difficult task to do. Plus, he’s an idol and you weren’t sure if it would work out. You explained these bothering thoughts to the rest of them for them to understand your part.

“I’m sure Baekhyun has a good explanation why they performed this today. I’ll call him later when he’s done with his schedule.” You said before grabbing your clipboard and poked a pen to your chest pocket.

“Or we could talk about it right now.”

When you turned around, you were taken aback when Baekhyun stood there right in the flesh. In his hand was a bouquet of carnations and blue roses. You couldn’t take your eyes off Baekhyun in scrubs. It looked absolutely perfect on him. If only he were a doctor, he’d share the same worries.

“I thought you were live? How did you get here so fast?”

Baekhyun replied. “It was pre-recorded, sweetheart.”

“Well,” the attending physician continued, “We should go back to work. Let’s go everyone. We need to, um, save lives. I’ll see you later!”

You chuckled when she pumped her fists and mouthed to Baekhyun, ‘Go get her!’

The moment you heard the door click, you initiated the conversation. “So what do you want to talk about, Baekhyun?”

“Us,” he responded. You shrugged, “What about it?”

“Look, I really really really like you. This is not an idol stunt I’m pulling. Think about it. Why am I spending my time with you in the hospital during my day offs when I could have used it to rest?”

You were caught speechless. It all made sense and you were scared to admit it. “Why do I check on you every other hour during your shifts? Why do I fetch you just to take you home safely at four in the morning?”

“I should say I love you but I guess that’s too fast for your liking. But, I really like you,” Baekhyun took a step closer. He set down the flowers on the table before rubbing your sides.

“And if that song that I wrote with Chanyeol and Dean didn’t prove enough then…”

You cupped your hands on his cheeks. Baekhyun pouted. You leaned in and placed a kiss on his cheek. “Byun Baekhyun. EXO’s lead vocalist and the most adorable puppy I’ve ever met. You have won a place in my heart. I like you, too.”

“And, no, it’s not too fast for my liking. I think it’s about damn time.” You wrapped your arms around his neck, pulling him down until your lips are a few centimeters away from each other. You stared into his deep brown orbs swirling with adoration.

“I love you, Baekhyun.”

note: not really a valentines day gift for yall but it’s almost valentines so let’s just call it that lmao i’ll be writing for the rest of the members so stay tuned 💕 | masterlist

imagine: Sebastian practically undressing you with his eyes.

“You’re such a tease miss (y/n), seeking me out in the middle of the night, wearing nothing more than that.” He points a finger at your nightgown, while his eyes roam freely over your body. “Although i must admit you’re a rather welcome destraction from the dull tasks a buttler has to perform during the night hours.” He steps closer to you, trapping your body between the kitchen table and his own. There’s electricity in the air and you can feel the tension building as he leans closer, his lips almost touching yours. “Please, don’t tease me like this again, i’m just a butler, who knows how long in can hold myself back.” A small smile plays at your lips, give it to Sebastian to always be polite. You grab the collar of his coat. “you’re not just a bttler, you are one hell of a butler and i’m dying to find out if you’re one hell of a lover to.”

author’s note: I decided to start writing more black butler gif-imagines, just let me know who you’d like to read about xx

Hey guys! This is just my reaction/summary post of the BTS Concert in Newark (Thursday, 3/23)! I’ll be going into a lot of detail, but bare with me. I’ve linked all the fancams I took throughout the post, so you can check that out :)

[Full Fancam Playlist]

BEFORE THE CONCERT

Alright so first things first…I’ve been following BTS since ~May/June 2014, and this was the first time I was actually able to go to a live concert. I WAS LITERALLY BEYOND THE MOON when I got tickets, and I was so excited that I was badgering everyone I knew with my fangirling. BTS means so much to me, they got me through some of the hardest times in my life, and they gave me happiness and hope. So getting to go to one of their concerts, see them and support them in person, was such a blessing.

Look, we all joke in the YOI fandom that when Victor says he was drawn to Yuri because of the way his “body moves to the music” he means WHEN YURI IS STRIPPING WITH A POLE, but I’m starting to feel like when we do that, we’re a) treating Victor like a bimbo and b) buying Yuri’s line that he’s just another dime-a-dozen skater.

Let’s not forget this glimpse we have here in the very first episode, of Victor in the hallway, right before he goes out and performs a routine that wins him his fifth consecutive Worlds title. What’s he doing? RUNNING OVER A STEP SEQUENCE.

Yuri never has to run over his step sequences. Before he performs, he’s busy psyching himself up, trying not to panic (which will make him ruin his jumps).

And let’s not forget it’s his performing, his step sequences, that get him Yurio’s attention as well.

Yuri is a beautiful skater. The end.

Confessions

Character(s): The8 (Minghao) x Reader

Words: 652

Rated: F (Fluff)

Request: Can you do a scenario with Minghao (the8) where he’s trying to confess but keeps getting interrupted. <3 –ANON

Author’s Note: This is my first scenario request! I’m so excited! I REALLY HOPE THIS IS WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR! Thanks for requesting!

Today is just an ordinary day, well for you. You would sit in Korean/ Chinese boy band, Seventeen’s, dance rehearsal. You became friends with them through their choreographer, also your sister. Ever since then you always had your eye on one particular person, Minghao, or The8 as most people know him. He’s so nice and caring towards everyone, including you. He’s also very handsome but you never really care about the looks.

Just the way he dances in rehearsal and onstage just amazes you. He looks so into it, especially since he’s member of the performance team. Also, to add onto that, he has an amazing voice. He can sing, dance and he’s an amazing person overall. How could you not like him? The only thing is that you don’t think he likes you back. He probably has a girlfriend anyways.

You were listening to their album (17 Carat), loudly, and then someone tapped your shoulder. You quickly look up to see The8 looking down at you, smiling. You smiled back and pulled out your earplugs.

“Do you need something?” I asked politely.

“I just wanted to tell you that everyone went to go buy some food and they promised to bring us some back.”

You looked around to see an oddly, empty dance studio. You looked up to him and said thank you for telling me. He smiled and nodded him head to say you’re welcome. You put your headphones in and watched Minghao dance around the room. You fell into a trance just watching him. You quickly noticed that he was getting frustrated fairly quickly. You took out you earplugs and slowly walked over to the music player to turn it off. He looked at you with a quizzical look on his face.

“Why’d you turn the music of Y/N?”  

“You were starting to get frustrated Minghao. That isn’t like you. What’s up? Are you okay?”

He was scratching the back of his neck in frustration and walked over to you, very fluidly.

“I’ve wanted to tell you something for a while now and it’s been killing me to not let you know this. Y/N I-“

Just as he was about to say it, Vernon walks in.

“Food’s he-… ohhhhhh, my bad. Carry on.”

He leaves out and closes the door behind him. You and Minghao are alone again. He’s staring at you deeply.

“As I was saying, I-“

He rolled his eyes and bit his lip to not scream at the person that just interrupted him. You both look to see Dino run in along with Vernon.

“I told you not to come in Dino! Sorry The8.”

“I just want to eat man!”

Vernon finally walks out with a whining Dino. You quietly giggled at the two and The8 couldn’t help but smile at your adorableness.

“I like you, Y/N. Like a lot.”

You looked at him to study his eyes. Did you hear him right? He likes ME?

“You don’t have to say anything yet Y/N. Just please don’t say it yet. It’s fine if you don’t like me back. I-“

Before you could say anything back you wrapped your arms around his neck and kissed him. He almost immediately kissed you back, wrapping his arms around your waist. You pulled away and looked him in his eyes.

“I like you too, Minghao. Like a lot.”

You both laughed and share another kiss. You then hear S. Coups behind the door, yelling “That’s my boy” along with cheers and yelling from the other member’s and your sister.

All you and Minghao could do was laugh.
