Dear Festividder,

Hello!! Thank you SO much for making me a vid! I can’t wait to see what you are able to come up with. I am very easy to please and will likely flail at you for years to come, so please don’t feel obligated to stick to any of the fandom specificities listed below — it’s only to help you understand what I love about the source so much and to give you guidance if you feel you need some sort of prompting.

Music: Anything is fine! I mostly listen to 80s rock, 90s and current pop, and a cappella. I am not super fond of country, but hey, if it works for the vid, please go for it. Most of the bands/songs I really hate end up being vidded by somebody, and then I start liking it, so that’s never really been an issue. It’s more important to me that the song works for the vid.

Likes: I love all types of vids! I am mostly drawn to character studies, family/group feels, and vids I can dance to. I mostly love when I can tell the vidder cares very deeply about the thing they are vidding.

Dislikes: Not too picky, here. I generally don’t love a lot of dialogue in vids (though for Leslie Jones, I’d be quite open to it), and am not usually a fan of lots of flashy effects on live action material. I also have a strange but real fear of fish larger than goldfish (especially dead ones) so please don’t include those if they pop up in your source-hunting.

Onto the requests (many gifs under the cuts)!

Hi, Festividder, hiiiii!

You are the best! Thank you for making me a vid! I swear you won't regret it. I love all sorts of vids, especially ones made just for me, and I will squee at you forever. :D

I'm super easy to please. I like almost all music, but I'll be won over by any music I don't normally like if it works well in a vid. If you need more direction, I am always a fan of pop music, and lately have been listening to music along the lines of Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode, and Radiohead. I generally gravitate towards vids that really show that the vidder *loves* the source. If you enjoy making it, I'll enjoy watching it. That's more important to me than following anything more specific I say below.

Fandoms! Details! If you need some sort of prompt, I kinda-sorta will give that to you below. Mostly it's "Blah blah blah I love this character and this character and -- oh, just vid anything. I will love it." But hopefully it will be a tiny bit helpful!

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!

Animorphs )

Batman - Adam West (1966) )

Life After Beth )

Malcolm in the Middle )

Pit Bulls and Parolees )

RPF - Paige (WWE) )

The Flash )

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

Dear Festividder,

Hello! Thank you so much for making me a vid! Please know that I will absolutely adore anything you decide to make for any of these fandoms. I am requesting them all for a reason, and it's because I love them all dearly from the bottom of my heart. Making something YOU want to make is more important to me than matching my every need and request. When someone vids something they really want to be vidding, it always shines through, and it's one of my favorite things about watching other people's work.

Music - Any music is fine. I trust that you'll use what works best for your vid. If you need some direction, I generally like fast-paced songs, rock, mash-ups, alternative, indie, pop, rap, 90s rock, etc. If you are really stuck on something, feel free to comment anonymously, but really, any music is totally okay. :)

Requests - These are all just guidelines, and like I said, I'd rather have you make a vid that you want to make than try to make something you don't love just to make something you know I'll love. I WILL LOVE IT, trust me. I'm incredibly easy to please. I will be bouncing off the walls at go-live, don't you worry. Generally speaking (and this will become very apparent as you click through the lj cuts below), I love ladies, teamwork, friendship, and personality. I like fun vids, action vids, cheesy vids, comedic vids, serious vids, dark vids… ALL THE VIDS. Here are some more details on all the fandoms I've requested (AKA here is a copypasta of my sign-up form):

Animorphs [TV] )
Bates Motel [TV] )
Batman: The Animated Series [TV] )
Ghost Shark [Movie] )
Little Mosque on the Prairie [TV] )
RPF - Little Mix [TV, Web, Music video, Performance] )
Space Cases [TV] )
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip [TV] )

So that is it, Dear Festividder! Go at it, have fun, and make the vid of your heart! As always, treats are more than welcome, too!

Dear Festividder,

Hello! Thank you for making me a vid! Festivids is my favorite thing (besides maybe Vividcon, but they're pretty on par with each other). First I want to say that if you're freaking out, relax! I will honestly love anything you make me. I wrote down the things I love about each fandom just as a guide if you're not really sure what you want to make, but more than anything, I want you to make the vid of your heart. If you offered a fandom and have a specific idea for it, or if you've always wanted to make a certain vid, do that! Basically I will be happy just to get a vid at all, but I would much rather you be excited about making it than feeling kind of blah about it just to make something that I would like. So seriously, do whatever you want! :D

Music is another thing I'm not super picky about. The only music I generally don't like is country, but if the song works for the vid, you can make me like that song. I have definitely fallen in love with songs I've previously hated due to vids using those songs. :D I really like Top 40 type music and 90s music, or if you're not so into that, anything with a strong beat or an upbeat tempo, mash-ups, a capella, rock, alternative... really, anything. But again, anything that works for you will totally suck me in.

And here are the fandoms (copied and pasted from my sign up):

Animorphs, Boy Meets World, Breaking Bad, Nowhere Boy, RPF - Emma Stone, Space Cases, & Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip )

Thank you again, my dear festividder! Multi-fandom is fine (though I feel like that would probably be very difficult, with my eclectic taste in fandoms), and treats are wonderful!

Hi my lovely festividder! First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH for making me a vid. I am very easy to please, and as I had to cut my requests list from 36 fandoms down to 8, you must know that anything I get in any of these fandoms will give me seal-like clappy hands. Here is what I wrote in my sign-up, which are just guidelines if you feel like you need them. If you already have an idea, please go with that! I'd much rather see a vid that was made with passion than a vid you feel like you had to make in order to make me happy.

Animorphs: Rachel is my favorite character so something about her would be really cool. That said, I seriously love everybody on this show, so if you wanted to make a Visser Three crackvid or an andalite race study or seriously ANYTHING, I would be so excited.

Modern Family: This is another show where I just love everybody. This is a common theme among these fandoms, I'm telling you. I would really like something focusing on the kids, though. A Manny character study in particular would be really cute/funny, but I'd also love one about Alex, or maybe even an ensemble.

Space Cases: Okay. This is legitimately my favorite show. I remember what day of the week it was on (Sunday before What Would You Do) and every ridiculous plotline, so I would just die if someone made a vid for this show, no matter what it's about. I would probably just go for an ensemble piece with this show unless there's a particular character that you really want to make a vid about. Catalina (lol Jewel Staite) and Suzee were my favorites when this was on the air, but every time I rewatch it, my appreciation for the other characters grows more and more.

Stand By Me: Wil Wheaton! <3 Just something schmoopy about the power of friendship/love would melt me into a big pile of goo.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip: Jordan McDeere is my spirit animal, so aaaanything involving her would be marvelous. I also love the Big Three, though I don't really like Harriet by herself so I'd rather not have anything about her (including her is totally fine since she's obviously a big part of the show, I'd just rather not have a Harriet character study). A Matt/Danny vid would be cool, too!

Sugar Rush UK (2005): Baby lesbians! Something just all about Kim trying to figure herself out would be so interesting. I would definitely not mind baby Andrew Garfield sneaking his way in there, either. :)

Toy Story (all): Same as Stand By Me, really... I'd just love something schmoopy and friendshippy. Something that will make me tear up. Or if big emotion vids aren't your thing, something completely ridiculous (which is where the music request comes in, because it'd be pretty hard to make a serious vid to that song).
Music: Bad Horse from Doctor Horrible's Sing Along Blog

Zombieland - 2009: Emma Stone being a total badass, please. I love Jesse Eisenberg too, so I would totally not mind him hijacking the vid, but I would just love something about all the awesome girl power in this movie.

As far as music goes, I am pretty open. The only genre I'm not so into is country, but if the song works with the vid, country is totally fine. In particular, I really love 90s pop/alternative (The Wallflowers, Fastball, Third Eye Blind, Gin Blossoms, Chumbawamba, New Radicals, etc., or as one of my LJ friends described it, anything that sounds like it came off one of the first few "Now!" CDs). I also really like the most recent stuff that everyone seems to vid to these days (Mumford and Sons, Florence and the Machine, Adele, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, etc). And instrumental vids are really interesting to me. But really, I love hearing music I haven't heard before, so my music guidelines are not going to be very helpful because I'm just going to tell you that I will love anything you use. You are making a vid! All for ME! :D

I love [livejournal.com profile] festivids. So much. Good luck and have fun! :D
