So, I've just finished Festivids, which was an interesting experience. Yuletide - and being more involved in the Yuletide community - meant that I left the majority of the work on my vid until after New Year's. Which was a tactical error, albeit - knowing me - an entirely predictable one.

I was matched to my recipient on the Galaxy Quest fandom, which amuses me, as Galaxy Quest is something of a fannish text itself. The recipient asked for 'Don't Stop' by Fleetwood Mac as the song, but didn't give any further details, prompts, or ideas - and didn't post a Dear Vidder letter, either, at least not that I could find.

thoughts about vid creation and process and stuff )

I don't know whether I succeeded with the vid in its current form, although I'm happier with it than I expected to be. Looking back, I can see a few things I'd do differently now. I learnt a lot while making this vid, particularly in terms of storytelling and story construction, and I hope it worked for other people.

Galaxy Quest - Yesterday's Gone
Music: "Don't Stop (Thinking About Tomorrow)" by Status Quo (Fleetwood Mac cover)
Content: Gen, ensemble.
Footage: Galaxy Quest movie.

One thing made the good old days great: teamwork. In which the cast learns that nobody can go it alone, and together they’re unstoppable.

My [livejournal.com profile] festivids recipient loved zir vid! Hooray!

And I got a lovely vid in return: Fifth Element - Five Diamonds, which is amazingly only the vidder's second outing!

*is happy!*

Go check the vids masterlist! There is More Joy for everyone today!

I must sleep, because I've already stayed up way too late rewatching the first Harry Potter movie (which, on rewatching just after having listened to the audiobook, does not do the book justice). But the Festivids go-live is probably any minute now and I wants to wait for it!

Sigh. Being an adult sucks!

*goes to bed*

So happy!

I finished my Festivids vid! Despite procrastination, lack of inspiration, and (for the last few days) a worsening case of conjunctivitis that's left me unable to see the screen for many hours a day, I got that sucker done. Thirty hours before deadline, too, and I am a lot happier with it than I expected. :)

Now to get the draft uploaded, and then sit somewhere with a wet cloth over my eyes for a few hours. The exciting life I lead...

First of all, I'm sorry this letter is so late! I have been rather under the weather lately, and thinking intelligently was a bit beyond me. I hope this is better late than never. And now - on with the show!

Thankyou so much for vidding for me! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you produce. :) Everything I list below is completely optional; the most important thing to me is that you create what you're inspired to create -- that said, I know guidance is helpful in gift exchanges, so here's some feedback about what I really love:

Like Yuletide, Festivids is having a nominations phase before its signups. I spent a while thinking today about what I wanted to nominate - although vids are my primary fanworks these days, I find inspiration harder to come by, so I wanted to be sure I was nominating only sources that I'd be really happy to either receive, or vid for.

My noms list, finally, looks like this:

Appleseed (movie/anime)
Fifth Element (movie)
Galaxy Quest (movie)
Tomb Raider (movie)
Ocean's Eleven series (movie)
Pirates of the Caribbean series (movie)
Wall-E (movie)

I was amazed by the fact that there were no TV series in the list - but I think the series for which I have good source are pretty mainstream, and nothing really leapt out at me from the stuff I have on the computer.

For the vidders out there: [livejournal.com profile] festivids is a rare-fandom vid exchange fest; it's very much like [livejournal.com profile] yuletide for vids. It looks like a lot of fun, and one vid isn't too much to put together within the next couple of months - give it a whirl :)
