Welcome to Expanding The Verse

ETV is a fan video and fandom discussion community. We love to share and discuss music videos celebrating our favorite fandoms. Our goal is to provide a community that encourages, nurtures and teaches the budding vidder in you! Here, you can submit your fan video and receive in-depth feedback and critique, join in fandom discussions, share fan art and fan fiction or just watch some of the best fan videos on the web.

The Great ETV Experiment #3

Don’t turn out the lights, because the vidders are slicing and dicing up “FEAR” in this themed video.

It offers up thrills and chills and scary-good musicality.
