I am VJing one vidshow and co-VJing another, and will happily take suggestions/premieres!

The first show I'm VJing is Lions and Tigers and Vids, Oh My!, a vidshow all about animals. One vid per animal (unless the vid has multiple animals, in which case a repeat is okay with me). I'm mostly looking for vids in the point of view of the animal, but I welcome any and all suggestions.

The one I'm co-VJing with [personal profile] milly is Game Plan, a sports vidshow! For this one, we're hoping to include both RPF sports and sources with a sports focus.

If you are interested in making a premiere for either of these vidshows, we would love that! You can comment here or message me or [personal profile] milly. Additionally, if you think you want to make a premiere but don't have any ideas, I have a giant list of sources/animals/sports that I'm sad there aren't vids for, so hit me up. If you have vid suggestions for either show, you can contact one of us personally or use the form on the website when it goes up.

This Festivids was AMAAAAAZING! I love everything I received (thank you again, vidders!!!) and I think this was one of my best years for vid-making, too. Here is what I made:

Dynamite (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) for [personal profile] ciaimpala
The Runner (The Flash) for [personal profile] talumin
Classic (Barbie: Life In The Dreamhouse) for [personal profile] bananainpyjamas

All streaming/download links and extended notes are at my individual vidposts.

No one officially pegged me for any of these! A few people had their suspicions about the latter two, which might mean my style/interests are starting to get a bit clearer as I grow as a vidder (or I just couldn't shut my mouth about Barry Allen on twitter). I really, genuinely enjoyed making all of these and am glad people got something out of them. Squee!

Today was Festivids go-live day!! I still cannot believe I received six(!!!!!) absolutely wonderful vids. They all make me super happy and you should watch them immediately. <3

Batman - Adam West (1966)
Holy Dance Vid, Batman!
I am what I am
Kinky Neighbors

The Flash
The Scientist

Life After Beth
Love is Blue

Pit Bulls and Parolees
I'll be there for you

I've watched about a third of the vids so far, all over the alphabet (seriously -- my vid-watching group uses a number generator so we don't watch a billion vids for the same fandom in a row). Here are some of my favorites so far (that weren't made for me):

The Monster (Black Swan)
Lifesaver (The Cutting Edge)
Centuries (The Flash)
We're All In This Together (The Flash)
The Creationist (Good Eats)
Nothing But Time (Gravity)
Always A Good Time (Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters)
Moves Like Yaweh (Prince of Egypt)
Can't Stop (Romeo + Juliet)
I Could Be (Selfie)
Mirrors (Snow White and the Huntsman)

ETA: Forgot about Guess The Festividder! I made three vids. Can you guess them? You will win a thumbs up and an impressed facial expression from me if you can ping me for any. Here are your hints: One should be obvious for content, one should be obvious for style, and I'd never seen the third vid's source before it was requested for Festivids. None of them are sad (I realized today that I've literally never made a sad Festivid, so this is not really a hint, haha).

Maybe eventually I will also finally answer those vidding meme questions from like four months ago, or whenever that was. But I do this one every year, so here! I made seven vids this year, which I think is me finally leveling between ALL THE VIDS because I was new and cut slowly, and almost zero output because depression:

Run The World [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.]
Applause [Don't Trust The B In Apartment 23]
Ride With Me [The Heat]

Dark Horse [The Amazing Spider-Man 2]

The Way We Get By [Broad City]
Problem [Jennifer's Body]

Rock Your Body [MCU]

Dear Festividder!

The exclamation point was originally a typo/me being a little too excited, and I was going to change it back, but that is silly, because I want you to know how incredibly excited I am for Festivids season! I will love anything and everything you decide to vid for me. It means to much to me that someone would put in so much time and effort into something to make me happy, even if it's for an exchange, so I really appreciate you already!

I really love all types of vids! The ones I usually gravitate towards are usually fun and energetic, team/ensemble, hopeful, and/or have a very clear and interesting narrative. Deep, thinky vids are great too, if that's your sort of thing! I'm generally not a fan of voiceovers and funky video filters, but if that's what works for the vid and/or if it adds meaning, have at it! I will love it.

Music doesn't really matter to me. I like pop, rock, alt, indie, rap, classic rock, 90s, instrumentals -- you name it. I'm not super fond of country, but honestly, I will like any song if it's the right one for the vid, even if I don't like the song on its own.

Here are the fandoms I'm requesting, with some guidelines, should you want to follow them. As always, feel free to make whatever you want! Don't worry if it's not what I ask for here -- I promise that I am incredibly easy to please!

Batman - Adam West (1966) )

Life After Beth )

Malcolm in the Middle )

Thank you, thank you, thank you, festividder! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hi vidders! I have a poll/discussion post set up here about a new vidding challenge I'm going to run called Take 2. The general idea is to remake an old vid of yours -- Maybe you look back on a vid that you KNOW would look better (or just different) if you made it today, or maybe you have always been bothered by the fact that the clip of House and Wilson riding off into the sunset aired two years AFTER you made the House/Wilson vid of your heart. Whatever reason you have for wanting to remake that vid, here is your excuse to finally do it! More information is available at the post. Please feel free to spread the word!

Got back from [community profile] vividcon yesterday and had so much fun! Great vids were watched and interesting conversations were had. I'm not sure if I'll end up doing a con report because *so much* ridiculous stuff happened and I'm not sure if I'll be able to remember it all, but if I did tweet a lot during the con so maybe looking through those will refresh my memory. I am doing recs though because VIDS! \o/

I'm not going to lie, I haven't seen all the Club Vivid premieres. I might do a second recs list eventually once I see them all, but this is based on what I've seen. Links to be added as they're posted.

I do want to start off by saying that I put a star next to every single premiere in the Femslash vidshow except for mine because they were seriously all so great. In fact, you should watch that entire vidshow, if you have access to the stream (and if not, when all the vids are posted you should just go here and watch them all). Consider all of those officially recced by me. :)

Other recs:

No Sunlight by [personal profile] bradcpu [Motorama] - I have never seen this source, but it was easy for me to follow and it was hopeful, dismal, strange, and relatable all at the same time. Definitely worth checking out (if you are not triggered by child abuse).

Dance Alarm by [personal profile] thirdblindmouse [Fast & Furious series] - This vid was SO MUCH FUN omg. I was lucky enough to look this over a few months ago before she submitted it and I can't even tell you the number of times I've watched it since then. The lyrical interpretation is incredibly clever, and I think this is the epitome of what a Club Vivid vid should be.

Work Bitch by [personal profile] rhoboat [Reign] - This vid was super ridiculous and fun, just like the show! Once again, rho took a song I previously hated and made me love it because her vids are so visually stunning and are always engaging. The effects she used worked incredibly well with the source and the song, and also there are clips of someone being fucked out a window, which I have laughed at every single time. Seriously, why are you waiting to watch this vid? GOOO!

Hello by [personal profile] trelkez [Kitchen Confidential] - This vid was a lot of fun and was a wonderful recruiter vid. I'm not sure why I thought this was a reality show up until now but it looks incredibly entertaining, and I would really like to seek it out now.

In The Dark by [personal profile] bradcpu [Sleepy Hollow] - This vid was a huge hit at CVV and just had a beautiful flow to it. It was really well put together and the song/source match was a great idea that ended up working very well.

Rhythm of the Night by [personal profile] kuwdora [RoboCop/Total Recall/Starship Troopers] - If you're a fan of her vids in general, you will probably really enjoy this one. It has [personal profile] kuwdora plastered all over it and you can tell she had a blast making this vid. It's a cool juxtaposition of Paul Verhoeven's films (all of which she had me watch while she was making this vid) and it was super fun to dance to. Also, the last clip in the vid is kinda great.

This Mother's World by [personal profile] grammarwoman [Multi] - This was a vid about miscarriage and infertility and is very upsetting, but I also think it is so important. It's not the type of vid that you probably want to watch over and over again, but it's extremely well-constructed and hits you right where it hurts.

Sweet Ophelia by [personal profile] trelkez [Hannibal] - This is another incredibly gory/violent vid, but if the treatment of women on Hannibal makes you angry, you will probably be furiously nodding along to this vid. Very effective and to the point.

Myxomatosis by [personal profile] hollywoodgrrl [Bates Motel] - I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT THIS VID. This was definitely the highlight of the con for me, not only because I love both Bates Motel and [personal profile] hollywoodgrrl's vids, but it was just so well-constructed and it felt like it would make a good deal of sense even without context (which I confirmed with a few people later on). This vid beautifully captured what the show has been building towards and intensified it. The song choice was perfect and the Psycho clips were icing on the proverbial horror cake. I'm probably going to have to watch this vid about 50 more times and analyze it bit by bit, because wow.

Killers On The Run by [personal profile] winterevanesce [Bonnie & Clyde (2013)] - This was another really great recruiter for me. Visually very pretty and emotionally gripping.

Trouble by [profile] cherryice [Despicable Me] - This vid was so fun! Beautiful internal motion, lots of Gru feels, and just a very smart vid all around. It was also absolutely a bright moment in the vidshow, which was very appreciated. :)

Me and the Devil by [personal profile] ohvienna [The Conjuring] - I haven't seen this source, but found this vid visually and emotionally very compelling. Vera Farmiga's face probably helped, but the cutting and intensity kept me engaged and able to follow throughout.

Fantasy by [personal profile] sisabet [The Mindy Project] - This vid just made me really happy and encapsulated what this show is all about. Loved Mindy's eyerolls and quirks, and of course, the way she interacts with everyone. I was totally squeeing the entire time, and the song choice was perfect.

***Flawless by [personal profile] kiki_miserychic [Disney Princesses] - This was such an interesting look at the public's critique of Disney Princesses. The spoken words portions of the audio pretty much whack you on the head several times with the point of the vid, the parallelisms are incredibly well done (and also surprisingly abundant), and it sparks great conversation.

Wake Me Up by Jill, Kathy & Kay [Sinbad] - This was another great recruiter vid. Masterfully edited, good song choice, and made me very interested in seeking out the source.

Slippery Slope by [personal profile] hollywoodgrrl [Fringe] - I've only seen the first season of this show so far (I'm awful, I know) so I couldn't follow this as well as most people probably could, but the emotion still ripped through the screen, and the cutting, as always, was incredibly intense and effective. You don't even have to watch the show to feel impacted, IMO, even though it's context-heavy. I heard someone go "Wow" as soon as this vid finished playing, and... yeah. That.

Chasing Cars by [personal profile] sisabet [due South] - This is a vid about Dief and it made me cry harder than I've ever cried at any vid. It's not even a sad vid! It's just very emotional if you love animals or have ever had a special connection with your pet.

Someone on Facebook posted this link to 16 Habits of Highly Sensitive People and I thought I'd share for anyone else who relates to it as much as I do. I heard of this for the first time last week, and I wish it was talked about more. Sometimes it's nice to have psychological explanations for the way you feel when it seems like most other people around you feel differently.

OKAY. I made three vids this year. I think I started seven, some of which may go on permanent hiatus, but I will probably go back to others, since 3/4ths of the unfinished ones are already clipped. Oops. Anyway. VIDS.
