This may or may not be a good idea... but let's find out.

Does anyone like the idea of a vidding land comm? For those who don't know, a land comm is an interactive challenge community where you compete in teams during a round. I have been toying with the idea of one dedicated to vidding but without the points/team aspect because vidding is hard enough without the pressure of competing. But I really like the idea of an interactive community that's intended to help you make vids.

If this interests you and you have a moment, I would appreciate you filling out this short survey so I can gauge interest. I would also appreciate you sharing this post around as well :)

Yay, it's my favourite time of year again! And yes, I totally look forward to [community profile] festivids more than Christmas.

Firstly, to whoever is matched with me, thank you so much for making me a vid! And to anyone who makes me a treat, thank you as well! The more vids the merrier!

You will note I have included no musical suggestions with my prompts. Personally, my enthusiasm and ease of making a vid is normally tied in to the song choice. If I can't get behind the song, making the vid becomes so much harder. So I will leave the song choice to you vidder since you'll be the one listening to it over and over and over again. I also have no musical preference in terms of genre, so if the songs works for the source, whether it be pop, country, rap or metal, then go ahead and use it.

My Nominations: Bob's Burgers, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Limbo, Neverwhere, Portal, RPF - Felicia Day & Stardust )

Good luck, Festividder! May the source be with you.

So I may not be at Vividcon but I am slowly watching all the vidshows through the Vividcon Live Stream, which is super awesome. Below are my favourites from the Femslash vidshow. Hopefully, I will come back and re-edit with links when they become available.


The Way We Get By by elipie [Broad City] because while I haven't seen Broad City all the gifs on Tumblr make it look hilarious and this vid confirms it.

I Do Adore by kiki_miserychic [Adventure Time, Princess Bubblegum/Marceline the Vampire Queen] because I was totally going to request this for Festivids but now I don't have to.

Let Me Put My Love Into You by sweetestdrain [Bitch Slap] because I have a complicated opinion of the movie since it's obviously aimed at a different audience but it's really fucking fun. Also, Xena and Gabrielle make a cameo!

Mrs and Mrs Blake by niyalune [Teen Wolf, Jennifer Blake/Kali] because this would have been a totally better story then what actually happened in canon.

Everywhere by fray-adjacent [Xena/Gabrielle] because it's Xena and Gabrielle ♥♥♥

Vitalum Vitalis by hollywoodgrrl and ohvienna [American Horror Story: Coven] because while I haven't watched AHS yet the visuals here were breathtaking. Also, witches!


Every year around Vividcon (and Festivids for that matter) I always become enamoured with vidding again. How is it so awesome!

Out of curiosity, since the show itself seems to be incapable of doing so, if I were to make a fanvid celebrating the ladies of The Big Bang Theory and all the geeky and nerdy things they do and I don't give up out of futility when I can't find enough clips... what would be a good song to use?

So one good thing about the new season is that when I eventually get around to making all the vids that are in my head, awesome vids that will (in my head) be character focused and emotionally thoughtful...

There will probably be a whole season's worth of ridiculous episodes that I can ignore for source.

So I've been oddly productive in terms of vidding for the first third of this year (not so much productive in other areas though) but failed to really post any announcements about it. So without further ado:

1) I don't think I owned up to my [community profile] festivids entries this year but I made three (a number I am quite proud of):
  • Psalm 40:2 - An overview of the movie Constantine and in odd timing the trailer for the new TV show has just been released.

  • Feeling Good - A Melinda May character study. And speaking of Agents of SHIELD, I am actually looking forward to the next episode, which is something I thought wouldn't be happening.

  • Fireproof - A Hansel/Gretel vid. Yes, the movie was terrible but Supernatural gave me a thing for overly codependent siblings.

(and yes, I know, I made these last year but it's the posting date that counts)

2) I also participated in [community profile] space_swap, a new challenge fest celebrating space fandoms, and I made Wanderluster, a vid celebrating Jane Foster's love of science, space and certain men who came from space.

3) And I also made a Club Vivid vid! Which I now have to wait months to find out whether people like it. I'm not completely happy with but you have to let vids go at one point.

4) Now to see whether I can make a Vividcon premiere vid as well...

So, as you may have heard the powers that be recently held an official Supernatural Tshirt design contest and I managed to get my creativity together to crank out a design. Now all the tshirts have gone to voting so I would very much appreciate anyone who could send a vote my way.

Click here to vote!

My design:

You can technically vote once per day for the same design until the 14th so if anyone feels like voting for me every day, that would be awesome!

So here are my thoughts of the Teen Wolf finale in a helpful pro/con format:

Dear whoever received me as an assignment for the Space Swap exchange. You may have noticed that my Space Swap letter is not currently unlocked. This is because I am totally not on top of things :O :O :O

My letter will be unlocked (after it's been written :O :O :O) later on today after I check what it is I actually requested :O :O :O

Festivids is live! And I received three awesome vids!

Feel the love - Portal series
A vid that shows the awesomeness of the Portal games and the creativity of the fandom.

Paper Planes - Bandidas
A vid that shows the awesomeness of the bank-robbing BFFs Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz.

Gorgeous - Hugh Jackman RPF
A vid that shows the dancing awesomeness of Hugh Jackman.

You may note that I described all the vids as awesome and that's because they were. Many thanks to whoever made these vids for me. I look forward to finding out who you are!

Or at least I just finished my second Festivid treat, which including my assignment means I have made three vids this year for Festivids!!! Something I am quite proud of.

What's even better is that Monday is a public holiday here so I can spend all day watching the vids!

Day 20: Do you ever get ideas inspired from other people's stories, vids, or art in the same fandom?

I think I have partly answered this before. It's not that I get directly inspired from other people's stuff, but stories, vids and art can make me like a pairing or character more or look at them in a different way, and this new outlook then inspires me to make some kind of vid. What that vid is, remains unknown at this point.

Questions )
08 January 2014 @ 09:21 pm
Day 19: When you have vid ideas, do you sit down and start vidding right away, or do you write down the idea for further exploration later?

I normally listen to the chosen song a couple of times... a day... for weeks... while I tell myself that I am going to sit down and write out a plan for the vid so I don't get stuck halfway through. But then the thought of writing a plan seems like so much work so I put it off. Or I start writing a plan and then get stuck halfway through that. Point is vids don't tend to get made quickly by me once I get the idea. I have had some ideas for years and haven't gotten started.

I do keep a list of all my ideas though. It is rapidly getting out of hand.

Hi all,

Unfortunately my normal beta isn't available to look over my Festivids assignment for me and I was wondering if there was anyone out there available to critique it?

I am generally looking for someone to comment on timing, clip choice, clip flow, etc. Everything, basically. I also have no problem with my beta being as harsh as needed.

Please leave a comment or PM if you are willing!
07 January 2014 @ 11:58 pm
Day 18: Where do you get the most inspiration for your vids from?

Ugh, anything and everything. Sometimes I will just really like a show. Sometimes I just really like a character or a pairing. Sometimes I really like a song and think yes, I must vid this to something. Sometimes I hear a song and immediately connect it to a fandom.

Sometimes I will see a gif set on Tumblr and think viiiiiiiiidd!

So yeah, many places.
