For our newest interview we decided to look to some of the YouTube Videos for a Fifty Shades of Grey fan. We decided on Sunshinedoll27, who has done several videos of possible Christian and Ana’s. Chlesea is a 25 years old graduated film student who lives right outside of Atlanta, Georgia. She is a production manager for a Burlesque show and edits videos on Youtube to practice her passion as an Editor.
How did you come to read Fifty Shades of Grey? A cousin of mine heard about it on the radio and had brought the book to my attention and I became very interested in the book from what I had heard. When I heard “steam sexual scenes” I was SOLD. I started to read the series near the end of May 2012.
Did you read an actual book or an ebook? I have read them both ways. The first way I read it was an ebook. On my apple products I loved the fact I could highlight my favorite parts and I could just scroll through them when I wanted to re-read a certain scene. After reading all 3 Books I decided I wanted the actual book(s) and once I bought them I re-read them. I also have the audio books on my iPhone.
Which is your favorite book in the series? That’s a really hard question. I think Fifty Shades Darker is probably my favorite but there are scenes in Fifty Shades Freed I love more. So it’s defiantly between those two.
What is your favorite scene in the series? That is nearly an impossible question to answer and I would type up pages of favorite scenes. Looking back at my favorite scene(s) most of them where when Christian was experiencing loss or pain and I know that sounds terrible but I’ll explain. When Ana leaves In FSOG or when he couldn’t find her after he got drunk in FSF or when we could hear his pain when Ana was in a coma, all those scenes tore me up when reading them. Those scenes made the relationship real to me. It for one is dramatic which I think is another huge part of why I like it but Christian isn’t a man who express his emotions and when he does on that level it shows the depth of his feelings for Ana, which is my favorite part of it all.
How many times have you read the series? (Laughs) I have actually lost count. I have read them at least 7 times fully. But have re-read certain scenes more than I could count on my hand. I guess you can say I’m obsessed.
Outside of Fifty Shades of Grey, what is your favorite book or series? I was a Twilight fan so I loved that book all four books so it’s not shocking to me that I jumped the chance to read the book that was fan-fiction to the series. I started reading the Crossfire Series in hope to distract me from my eagerness of anything new relating FSOG the movie. It worked but now I’m impatiently waiting for the final book that should be released in May. Another surprised book that is one of my favorites is “Escorted” by Claire Kent. I’m also a huge Emily Giffin Fan so “Something Borrowed”, “Something Blue” and “Love the One Your With” are on my list of favorites. I have a very hard time just having one favorite.
Are you married, dating, or single? I am dating my wonderful workaholic boyfriend. He is not a fan of the book series but I have to give him props because he did try to read them.
Who would you like to see play Christian and Anastasia in the movie? I don’t have anyone in particular. I completely understand why other people like certain actors but I haven’t found anyone that I thought “OH MY GOD That’s Christian Grey”. Maybe I’m to picky but from the very beginning I told myself that I would not focus on just one or a few actors or actresses because I feel if I did I would end up being disappointed when they actually announce the Official Cast. But in all honesty I think unknown actors would work the best especially for Anastasia.
If you were to meet E L James today, what 2 questions would you ask her? I think I would have to ask her first off “Hello Mrs. James my name is Chelsea Lincoln aka Sunshinedoll27. Have you seen any of my Fandom videos of FSOG?” (While shoving my phone in her face with one of my videos playing) (Laughing) My second question would be hard to decide but one question I have been very curious about would be “How old do you think Christian and Ana would be until they decided they are to old to use the Red Room Of Pain?” I mean when they are 80 years old is he still tying her up? Very random but she would be the only one to answer that for me.
When did you start creating Youtube videos? I started creating Youtube videos in 2006 and I was senior in high school. (Oh My God That’s A Long Time Ago) I started editing little videos of One Tree Hill on Windows Movie Maker (Boy Has Time Changed) I moved onto Sony Vegas and got Obsessed with Twilight, then I moved on to The Vampire Diaries where I said goodbye to my PC and upgraded to my iMac with All Adobe Products and Final Cut. Now I am caught up in the Fifty Shades Bubble and I love every second of it!
What is the goal or mission of your videos? I started making the videos because I’m just a die-hard fan and I wanted to see the book(s) come to life in a way that I could express it. I love that it has introduced me to other Fifty Shades Fans and others who are very involved in the Fifty Shades community. When Twilight was changing the word Fandom to a whole new level I felt like I was just an outsider watching it all happen. With the Fifty Shades Fandom I feel a part of it and I would be lying if I didn’t say it was an exciting feeling.
How long does it take to put together a video? It’s different for every video. What takes the longest is getting the footage and finding the right song. Once I get those ready I could finish a video in a couple of days but when work keeps me away from home and I procrastinate on 8 other videos at the same time it takes much longer. – My Newest video that I am only focusing on (Or Trying To) is taking a little longer because I’m creating “Graphic Like Parts” which is much more time consuming then to just cut video clips and place them on a timeline. I am very nervous and excited about this new video because I have never made a video like this. I think it’s got some aspects that other Fifty Shades Of Grey Editors haven’t done so I hope that it works out and you guys like it.
