Quick question, let's say I was making a vid for Thor/Heimdall, does anyone have a good song to use?

And no, I'm totally not asking this last minute in a rush. I totally plan things out in the appropriate amount of time to complete them.

Dear SSR Agent,

Firstly, apologies for not unlocking my letter in time. I have a couple of notes under the cut about why I like each prompt but really, I don't have anything specific in mind. Make something that you like as well and I am sure I will love it.

I have no restrictions with ratings or triggers aside from requesting nothing that is super dark. But whether you want to keep it family friendly or go super explicit, it is fine with me.

The only thing I really don't want is that despite it being years, I still really dislike the Daniel/Peggy relationship because of how both characters & plot were written in order to get them together. So while I don't want any character bashing, I also don't want him included as anything more than a side character, either as a friend/colleague or with the Daniel/Peggy relationship gracefully written out.

But that is really the only DNW I have.

As always, thank you for making something for me! I have a few brief notes below about my prompts but I don't have anything specific I am looking for. Make something that you like as well and I am sure I will enjoy it :)

I have no restrictions with ratings or triggers aside from requesting nothing that is super dark. But whether you want to keep it family friendly or go super explicit, it is fine with me.

Farscape - Aeryn Sun

Farscape is my most favourite show of all time and Aeryn was one of my favourite characters. This was before I really got in to fandom-fandom but John/Aeryn were definitely my OTP. However, whether you want to focus on Aeryn on her own or explore her other relationships is all good with me.

Thor - Loki/Thor/Hela

This relationship can be purely platonic or not so platonic, I'm good with either. But it would be interesting to see something about how Thor & Loki's dynamic changes with an older, more "evil" sibling, whether it's something set after Ragnarok (where Hela lives) or something more AU where Hela was always around.

The Avengers - Thor/Steve

I really like Thor/Steve as a pairing. They seem like very similar people and also have a lot of respect for each other. They are also very pretty together. Something that shows them navigating their relationship and navigating the strange & new (to them) world around them would be great. My only request is that Jane isn't written out in a bad way (since I like that relationship as well, you can also include Jane if you want ;).

The Avengers - Thor/Steve/Bucky

As well as liking Thor/Steve as a pairing, I also really like Steve/Bucky and inevitably when that happens I also end up liking them all smushed together. I don't know how this pairing would work out considering Bucky hasn't even meet Thor yet but I feel this pairing has possibilities.

The Avengers - Thanos & Gamora/Nebula

I kinda really hate Thanos (not just as a villian but the way they wrote the character) but I really love Gamora & Nebula. Something that explores their relationship together and with their "father" would be lovely.

Guardians of the Galaxy - Gamora/Nebula

As above, I really love Gamora & Nebula so I guess this prompt is really a double up but I would be equally happy with something about them that leaves out Thanos completely. Whether you want to keep the pairing platonic or not is fine with me, I am good with both.

So it looks like everyone is back to Dreamwidth, eh? Despite the fact my last "real" post here was at the beginning of 2016, it's pretty cool to see activity back here again. I do enjoy the Tumblr format and I had a lot of fun making gifs there but I also really enjoy the journal format as well.

I am probably going to go on a friending spree as well, at least so I can try to have a consistent list of people I want to follow if we change platforms. (FYI, I have been following [community profile] post_tumblr_fandom for news about post-Tumblr options and the different decentralised options sound pretty cool!)

But to those who are new or existing, hello, I am Mithborien. I lurk a lot and despite being an adult, I have yet to master the skill of being social. I primarily make vids these days and in fact have made 13 vids that I never got around to posting to Dreamwidth. They are, however, all available on AO3. It's 50-50 whether I get around to actually backposting them to Dreamwidth. I am pretty into Marvel at the moment, especially all things Captain America. Although to my great sadness (and fear of the looming upcoming Avengers movie) I have never made a proper Steve Rogers vid.

But in regards to vidding, there's a bunch of cool things which are happening:
  • Festivids 2018 is now live and I received an awesome vid called "Escape". It's a Darius/Sonia vid from The Hitman's Bodyguard. It has a completely different vibe from the movie but it's super awesome! (As an aside, I am super pleased that Festivids is still going. It's one of those fests that I look forward to every year.)

  • Spring Equinox signups are also now open (and close on the 3rd of February). For me, Equinox is the vidding challenge I participate in when I am not making a Festivid.

  • I also stumbled upon a post by [personal profile] trelkez about a Make a vidshow using only your own vids Challenge which sounds pretty cool. Does a vidshow of all the vids you failed to post to Dreamwidth count?

  • There's also a [community profile] vidbigbang which sounds cool. Totally not something I'll be able to complete this year but hopefully it runs again next year. Is there a Vidding Mini Bang? Not to step on anyone's toes but that's probably more along my capabilities at the moment.

  • Escapade are also accepting Vidshow Submissions until the 3rd February, which I will probably be submitting to. Attending overseas conventions is a little beyond my reach but it's cool that I can send my vids instead.

  • Also is anyone running a Vidding newsletter? I feel like there is a bunch of vidding stuff happening that I am only randomly stumbling upon.

*looks at that [community profile] viddingland comm that I made and never did anything with*

Hi Festividder!

As always, thank you for making a vid for me :) I have a few brief notes below but really, any kind of vid about any of my requests will be delightful.

Monument Valley (Video Game)

I keep hoping for a vid of Monument Valley even though the story is minimal and it's a mobile game that can only be played in portrait mode. But a vid of it would be so preeeetty!

Portal (Video Game)

I love this game for a lot of reasons. I love playing it and I thought the gameplay mechanics were a lot of fun. I love the scenery in both games: the futuristic testing chambers, the abandoned offices, the broken down facilities and the retro testing chambers in the sequel. I love the songs for the credits. I love the merchandise; I totally own a miniature portal gun and an Aperture Science tank top. I also love these videos: a Portal fan film, an official commercial for the game and the infamous credits song.

So I guess the vid I am envisaging for this is one that doesn't just focus on the gameplay but all the related media around the 'Portal' concept. So you, no biggie, just a small quick massively multi-source vid :O :O :O

The Good Place (TV)

Such a great show and I like all the characters, so whether you want to make an ensemble vid or focus on a character or a relationship, its all good.

Florence + the Machine (Music Videos)

I love Florence's music and I love her music videos. The video for "Big God" is amazing. So vid that looks at all the visuals and themes of her videos would be lovely.

George of the Jungle (1997) [SAFETY]

I nominated this purely because of this tumblr post, so a vid that encapsulates the themes of that post would be lovely.

The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) [SAFETY]

The dynamic between Darius and Michael is pretty amusing, but I would love a vid about Darius and Sonia.

Whoops, I didn't write my letter on time! However, I don't really have that much more to say about my requests so if you were looking for inspiration, uh...

I do love all these sources though so a vid in any of them would be lovely.

In general I like all kinds of music choices as long as it fits the ~~~feel~~~ of the vid. And unexpected music choices are always a pleasure. I also like vids that "flow" where the editing and movement of the clips really complement the music.

But seriously, any kind of vid will be awesome!

American Gods
Loved the books, loved the show. Maybe something focused on the different gods, how they were in their prime compared to modern day?

In the Flesh
I really loved this show for the short time it was on TV. Something focused on Kieran or Kieran/Simon would be great.

Merlin
I really loved this show and while it may have gone down in quality over time there were still so many awesome moments that reminded me why I loved it so. Anything focused on the four mains (Merlin, Arthur, Gwen & Morgana) either individually, or in different combinations or all together would be great.

Xena
Oh, Xena. I also loved this show. A lot. Probably my favourite show out of the list. Any vid focusing on Xena or Gabrielle or both would be lovely.

Coraline
I've always been a fan of Neil Gaiman and I really liked this adaption as well. I like Coraline but I also really like the visuals of the move in general.

The Mummy Series
Who doesn't love the Mummy series? But I have to admit I am more interested in Evy and Evy/Rick. But I certainly wouldn't say no to an Ardeth Bay vid.

What We Do In The Shadows
Such a hilarious movie. Again, any kind of vid would be great.

Thanks in advance for the vid, Equinoxxer!

Firstly, as always, thank you Festividder for making me a vid! I have very few notes under the cut so if you were looking for inspiration... whoops. But seriously, I will like any kind of vid from any of the sources.

In regards to music I love all kinds and there have been many vids that have made me love a song purely on the basis of being an awesome vid.

In regards to the kinds of vids that I like, well, that is too vague of a question but I do like vids that "flow" ie. where the movement of the clips flow across the editing.

Requests )

Hello Equinoxxer!

Firstly, thank you for making me a vid!

General things I like in vids:

- Editing to the music flow
- Unusual music choices

In regards to my requests, I don't have a strong preference for specific prompts so really make whatever vid you want. But if you want to know my extremely brief thoughts on each source, see below.

American Gods

Confession: I haven't actually watched the show yet but I totally intend to before vid reveals. I have read the book and what I have seen of the show looks amazing. I am just waiting for the appropriate time to binge watch the entire thing.

Coraline

Loved the book and loved the visuals of the movie. A vid about Coraline herself would be great.

Hogfather

I loooove the Discworld books. I don't think the film adaptions quite capture the feelings of the books but I think they do a really good job. I nominated Hogfather because Susan is a favourite character of mine from the books and I loved seeing her on film.

Legend of the Seeker

This is the only source where I haven't read the books but I super enjoyed the show. I loved the characters, the costumes, the slow-mo fighting. Totally my aesthetic. An ensemble vid or a vid focusing on the women would be great.

The Hunger Games

Loved the books, loved the movies. I was Team Katniss more than Team Peeta or Gale though.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

A remember reading the books years and years ago and feeling very confused. But I thought the show was really fun. An ensemble vid or a vid about Dirk and Todd would be great.

Thank you!

Does anyone have any recommendations for converting/extracting .mkv files for vidding purposes when MKVExtract and MKVCleaner have failed you?

Specifically I have .mkv files of the Bluray seasons of Agent Carter but my normal method of extracting the video using MKVExtract isn't working.

Firstly, thank you for writing a fic or making a vid for me. I can't wait to see what you create!

So I was thrilled when we got a Peggy Carter TV show since I loved the character in First Avenger.

The first season was pretty great but I'll be honest, I was not too fond of Season 2. It had some great moments but overall I found it lacking.

I kinda hated Peggy/Daniel a lot. I hated after being turned down for drinks Daniel apparently had a tantrum, moved across the country, ignored Peggy, got engaged and then broke off the engagement, and we're somehow supposed to believe Peggy still likes him and this is supposedly a romantic story?

So, uh, normally I don't do this but please don't include their in my gift. Either by writing it out or just pretending it never existed. How the show created their relationship really annoys me. I'm sorry if you like them :( :( :(

I also hated how they seemed to screw over their female characters. I hated how Angie wasn't there despite the season being set in LA and it would make perfect sense for her to have move out there. I hated how Violet just seemed to disappear after Daniel broke up with her. I hated how Whitney's story was resolved. She started off such a great villian and then it all just fizzled out. I hated how Ana's plotline about not being able to have kids seemed to be more about giving Jarvis angst then how it affected her.

But there were things I liked about Season 2 (which tended to be what I liked from Season 1). I love Peggy, of course. I liked Peggy and Jarvis' relationship. I liked Howard Stark (not so much as a person but he was great fun to watch as a character). I loved Dottie (the only reason I am not requesting her is because I got a lovely fic about her last year). I liked the new characters we got and the ones we got to see more of: Ana, Jason, Rose, and Whitney. I don't mind Daniel and Jack in a working relationship but I don't really care about them romantically or as focus characters.

General Likes/Dislikes

I always find it really hard to list anything here.

In general I don't really want anything with a high rating in regards to violence, dark themes, noncon, etc. But I don't mind a high rating in regards to sex. And despite how little I liked Daniel in Season 2 I don't want any "character bashing".

The list of things I like in fic is too varied but hopefully the notes above and below give you an idea of the kind of stories I like.

In regards to vids. I like vids that flow to the music and I don't like vids that are heavy on effects or "talky" face.

Music wise I'm up for any song choice as long as it suits the vid both in tone and lyrics. But I like songs for Agent Carter that have a little "old-timey" feel if you know what I mean.

Specific prompts

Peggy Carter

Yeah, so I ♥ Peggy Carter. Anything that focuses on her would be great. I don't have any specific request in mind. It can't be during the war, during working at the SSR, during working at SHIELD, during an AU where she mysteriously ends up in modern day. It's all good!

I like seeing her relationships with the other female characters or with Steve, Howard, Jarvis and the Howling Commandos. But anything focusing just on her is still good.

Peggy Carter & Angie Martinelli

I loved their relationship in Season 1. Anything that explores this further would be great. I would love a story where Angie gets caught up in one of Peggy's missions and seeing just how awesome Peggy is and just what her job entails.

Peggy Carter/Angie Martinelli

As above, I loved their relationship and I have no preference whether it's platonic or romantic.

Peggy Carter & Violet

As above, I hated what happened with Violet. Not only how she just disappeared but how it seems like she only existed to give Daniel angst.

So I would love a story that sees Peggy and Violet becoming friends and exploring who Violet is further. After all, having a nurse as a friend probably has some perks considering Peggy's line of work.

Peggy Carter/Jason Wilkes

I really loved Jason's character and if Peggy had to be in a romantic relationship I was totally rooting for him. So any story with them working together or getting together romantically, or both, would be great. I loved how every time they saw each other they just seemed to smile so widely at each other. Like I said above I don't want any character bashing, so while I do want Daniel out of the picture I would prefer he wasn't vilified in order to get Peggy and Jason together.

Peggy Carter/Gabe Jones

I know Peggy married Gabe in the comics but I haven't actually read them and don't know much more than that. But I really liked Peggy's relationship with the Howling Commandos in episode 1x05 and it speaks of a much stronger relationship then what we saw in the First Avenger. So I would love to see a story about Peggy building a relationship with Gabe but also seeing her with the rest of the Howlies.

Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers

I love Steve/Peggy so much and I am devastated we never got to explore their relationship further. So any kind of fic or vid about them would be delightful. I don't care when or where or how AU it is, I just love them together.

I don't really see either of them settling down in to a "typical" relationship ie. get married, kids, white picket fence, etc. So it would be interesting to see how they navigate their relationship among their unique jobs. Nor would I expect their relationship to be completely smooth sailing either. I think both of them are far too stubborn for that.

Angie Martinelli/Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers

I've only read one story with this pairing but I thought it would be interesting. Angie and Steve are both clearly important to Peggy so it would be interesting to see how a relationship works out. And I think it would be interesting to see how Steve and Angie would interact. They could bond over the theatre and performing!

Also, I think it would be funny because Steve doesn't really know how to interact with one woman, let alone two.

Dear Equinoxxer (is that the term?),

Firstly, thank you for making a vid for me. You will see my fandom choices below with some extra details if you are after prompts but really, any kind of vid in any of the fandoms will be great!

I'm also fairly easy going with music. I have no favourite genres but I do like "unique" music choices for vids, ones that you wouldn't normally expect.

So yeah, have fun and thank you again!

Farscape

This is the show of my heart ♥ I love it so much and have continued to love it after all these years. It's the show that introduced me to fandom, to fanfiction, and to vidding.

So really, any Farscape vid would be AMAAAAZZZZING!

However, John and Aeryn are my favourite characters and John/Aeryn is my OTP of OTPs. So a vid focusing on one of them or both would be great. But seriously, any kind of Farscape vid. (Except for Crais, I never really liked him.)

Firefly

Firefly is also a favourite show of mine. Again, any kind of Firefly vid would be great. I really liked the combo of the two different themes: space and westerns. I thought that was really cool.

So yeah, any Firefly vid is cool.

I did list River Tam as the only character in my request because if I had to pick a character I would like a vid about her. But seriously, any kind of Firefly vid would be cool. (Except for Jayne, mostly because I don't like the actor anymore.)

Star Wars

I have to admit, I never really got in to the Star Wars movies as a fandom. I was too young when the original series came out and the prequels were fun but I never really connected.

However, after Episode VII (which I did very much enjoy) I started learning more about Leia and Carrie Fisher. One of the things that struck me was Carrie mentioning the fact that they had to soften Leia down for Episode VI because she was perceived as too much of a "space bitch". Which is buuulllshiiit but I would love a vid about Leia that spans from the original series to Force Awakens that embraces the "space bitch" and any other injustice down to her character ie. Leia having her entire planet blown up but Luke is the one who gets comforted when Obi-Wan dies. And not to say that there is anything wrong with softness but not when it's forced upon you.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)

So like I said above, yeah, I never really got in to Star Wars but I did really enjoy The Force Awakens and I would love a video about Rey or Finn or Poe or all three. I thought all of them were delightful!

Stargate SG-1

Stargate SG-1 is also a favourite scifi show. Not quite up there with Farscape but definitely close. Again, any kind of Stargate vid is fine. I do prefer the original four team members though.

However, if you could do some sort of crossover with Farscape, that would be amazing!!! Either a direct crossover where the Ancients from both shows are one and the same, or some weird dimension tripping crossover thing where the actors that were on both shows are one and the same. Or something. Good luck with that!

Firstly, as always, thank you Festividder for making me a vid! I'm sure I will love anything you make.

I don't really have any specific likes or dislikes about vids in general except for saying that I like unique music choices and editing that really flows to the beat of the music.

Below are my nominations. I don't really have many specific requests and I may have spent more time hunting down the gifs then writing any helpful information about the sources. But really, any kind of vid from any of the fandoms is going to be totally awesome. I've noted my favourite thing out of each if it helps (it probably doesn't) but seriously, vid what works for you.

And as always, treats are awesome!

Black Swan, Bob's Burgers, Discworld, Galavant, Inside & Monument Valley )
Have fun!

Festivids reveals are up! I made vid for the movie Push starring Chris Evans.



Comment and download on Youtube / Reblog on Tumblr

Hilariously, my Festividder turned out to be my Festividdee so we ended up making a vid for each other. So I now know that [archiveofourown.org profile] himundergreen made my Edge of Tomorrow vid.

And I also know now that [personal profile] violace made my Limbo. Which I totally guessed! In my head.

But thank you again to both of you :)

Now I shall go back to lurking under my rock.

Festivids is live!

I sadly only made vid this year. My vidding mofo deserted me but I was still pleased with the vid I made.

I luckily received two awesome vids this year:

Full Metal March (Cambreadth to the Edge) - a Rita themed Edge of Tomorrow vid.
A Forest - a Limbo game vid

I have an idea as to who made the Limbo vid but we'll see when reveals come. Either way, they were both great vids and than you again to the vidders.

Hopefully, now that the stress of making the Festivids deadline is over, I can get back to some other vids.
