All of my vids can be found on LJ via the list below, by clicking on the vid tag, or at my site. I'm also on You Tube, AO3, and Tumblr.

Every vid I've ever made, with LJ linksCollapse )

Thanks for watching!

Just too mired in the post-con blues to do it.

Short version: The people were great, and I had a lot of fun when my issues would allow me to have fun. Otherwise I just tried not to rain on too many parades.

The creativity and discussions were inspiring, and con organizers continue to pull off miracles each year under some pretty demanding circumstances.

On Sunday night someone asked me what I thought was the "vid of the con" for me, and I had a lot of trouble answering.

I've been to seven VVCs, but never one with such a consistent quality level across so many fandoms. I can honestly say that I didn't see a premiere all weekend that I disliked, whether I knew the show or didn't.

So I'm not going to do a full recs post this year. Instead I wholeheartedly recommend that you check out the vidshow playlists and forge ahead with any vid that looks interesting to you. More than ever, your mileage will vary because of things like song choice, the vidder's style, interest in the subject matter, fandom love, and so on.

Here are a couple of vids that I personally loved for those same, subjective reasons, among the new-to-me vids that I saw this weekend. A couple of caveats: I still haven't seen all the vidshows, Club Vivid was kind of a blur (as usual), and I missed the first few vids of Challenge. Also, I had to watch the floor during about five vids in the Premieres show because of gore. But I'm told that those five vids were all extremely good.

Anyway, deadlines gone. Stress subsiding. I'm celebrating with a day of Skyrim and soccer. Aaaand getting the urge to start a new vid project. Dammit.

Has it really been 3+ months since I updated LJ? Wow.

A lot's been going on but not much fandom-wise. laurashapiro and I are doing a Revolution-themed vidshow for Vividcon. If you know of a vid that may fit, you can make suggestions here or at the official form.

I thought I wouldn't be able to make any premieres for VVC this year but have already finished two, including editing one in a single day - a first for me! It was one of those vidding-as-therapy things, so I don't know if that really counts.

I've also been posting a series with some of my favorite Club Vivid vids over on tumblr.

So hmm. I guess that actually is a good bit of fandom stuff. Maybe it's more that I haven't been that into active fandoms. I haven't watched Agents of Shield in weeks because I had no interest in the Captain America plotline, Sleepy Hollow's in offseason, and lots of my friends seem super interested in shows I can't get into. But I miss everyone, even more so since my different interests means I rarely interact with most of my fandom friends.

In summary, meme.

Anyone who feels like it should post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

1. The Natural
2. The Goonies
3. The Crow
4. Clue
5. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
6. Tron
7. Les Miserables
8. The Neverending Story
9. Glory
10. Waxwork

I feel like I deserve some sort of medal for not talking about this damn show until Festivids reveals. I've been watching since the premiere and dying each week to reblog, livetweet, and post ALL the things. Being sneaky is waaay harder than being buried alive by a rogue coven.

Anyway, I took a similar approach to some of my House vids, picking a theme (in this case, the journey of the witnesses) and doing a season overviewish mood piece to an instrumental. The show is absolutely gorgeous, so it lends itself well to that kind of thing.

Moonlight was posted here for Festivids.

I'm glad I spent it with you.

YouTube embed of vid and commercialCollapse )

No big thinky thoughts here. The commercial just reminded me of the movie, and I liked the idea of playing around with syncing the sound effects. I added a bit of the Lou Reed original to smooth out the opening and ending of the audio.

Honestly the hardest part was hiding Sly Stallone's constant scowl, which didn't fit the tone of the vid. I think the closest he ever got to a smile in the movie was kind of an amused grimace.

Perfect Day was posted here for Festivids.

Thanks to milly for her advice and encouragement on both of these.

These are just a few of the ones I enjoyed the most, based on my personal preferences, so your mileage may vary (go here to see them all). That said, I think I know like two of these sources so the vids pretty much won me over on their own.

Also, these don't include any of the vids that were made for me, which honestly all belong in this list.

Postpone the Bad (Agents of SHIELD)

Ready for the Storm (Apollo 13)

Wish (Arena)

Applause (Don't Trust the B)

Who Are You, Really? (Dredd)

9 to 5 (Lego Star Wars)

Let's Get It Started (Raging Phoenix)

Into the Groove (Romy and Michele's High School Reunion)

Pop Galaxy (Super Mario Galaxy)

No Church In The Wild (The Tudors)

Wherever You Will Go (Wallace and Gromit)

Freedom at 21 (The White Queen)

You Look So Fine (Whitechapel)
