This one rec was the most difficult to write because there are so many great and gifted artists and even more wonderful fanvids I would like to recommend, but I had to choose just one for this month. So I was thinking and thinking and then I just asked myself which vid I really liked the most and suddenly I had no problem with picking up the right one.
For me it's very important to know whose POV it is in the vid but more important is the tale the video tells. Almost anyone today can put some scenes together but to tell a story fitting in with the lyrics is not that easy.This one masterpiece is about Hutch's investigation taking place during the episode "Bloodbath". It's a black and white video, with only hints of color; you just know that in this episode there are no grays – it's all about good and bad. Hutch is the White Knight fighting the forces of the Dark – all in his world is either black or white. While watching this video you can FEEL his desperation, his struggle to find Starsky, and more – to find him in time. And everything that accompanies him is just a silence. And this silence in the end is the only thing that has a meaning in Hutch's life. In the end you realize that this strange Silence was actually Starsky; Starsky was with his friend all the time and together they won. As they always do. 
Nicky G thanks for reccing this vid of Shfans. This is one of my favorites of hers, I love the sadness and angst that Hutch feels and the way she uses spurts of color and light throughout the vid is so subtle but powerful.
