I just... I don't even know what to say about this vid. You could say that I got myself in too deep, and sometimes found myself up all night working on it.

Hi, my most darling Festividder! Hello! For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, this is the first time actually writing one of these letters! I am super excited to be participating, and I hope that this letter can give you some guidance. Unless you already have ideas, in which case --

Right off the bat, I can tell you that I'm going to love whatever you do, and love you for making a vid for me.

There are no notes on music selection, because I'm good with pretty much anything. I listen to everything from country to hip hop to classical, with a lot of indie thrown in. I'm not a huge fan of death metal, but I really think you can make absolutely any song work if you vid it with intent. General vid thoughts: I love motion, character studies, humour, seriousness lurking below humour, humour spun out of seriousness, serious deconstructions, SCIENCE, magic, things that are just plain fun, things that are thinky, things that are things, awesome ladies, awesome characters in general, and awesome adventures. You also have pretty much carte blanch permission to go hay-wild on any and all BBC nature documentaries, if the urge strikes you. (As with all reasonable human beings, I <3 David Attenbourough.)

Hiiiiiiii, Yuletide Author!

You are amazing for writing for me, and I'm sure I'll love anything you come up with. I love individual character studies as well as ensemble pieces, I love characters being smart, being raw, being complicated, being friends. I REALLY love a good dramatic reveal. (Dramatic reveals are a one of my largest narrative kinks.) I'm okay with violence and death - look at my fandom requests - but I'd rather it not be lovingly detailed and dwelt upon. I don't think anything I've requested really lends itself to graphic sex.

Title: Flora, Fauna, First Wizard of Cinema
Fandom: Works of Georges Méliès, 1896-1913
Music: Flora/Fauna - Anamanaguchi
Summary: A long time ago (and far into the future) in a galaxy far, far away (and right here at home)...

Links: Download (86 MB mp4) | Streaming (YouTube) | AO3

Notes: This is a video I've been wanting to make for some time -- at its core, it is simply a tribute to some of the works of Georges Méliès, what has survived, and been restored. While there were challenges related to the footage itself and the nature of the short films, this was really a labour of love. And on the up side: After working with footage from the 1890s, everything looks high definition.

Premiered at VVC '13 in the Brand New Classic Hits vidshow.

Hey folks! jetpack_monkey and I are putting on a vid show for VVC this year, called Brand New Classic Hits. It's going to be composed of vids with source that comes from 1969 or earlier, and it's going to be pretty freaking sweet.

To help optimize the amount of sweetness, we could use some recommendations! There's a suggestion form here, where you can babble on about something totally awesome you (or someone else) made. If you have any interest in making a premiere -- if there's, say, a 2001 vid *whistles innocently* you've been dying to make, or you want to play with Betty Boop, or you've been looking for an excuse to vid silent films or the original Planet of the Apes or Hitchcock or old musicals, we would totally love to show off your talents.

Despite managing to miss the signups for festivids (yet again), I made some festivids!

Zoolander and I Know It (Zoolander) for dualbunny

Another Code Against the Gone (Moon) for nicole_anell

They were both fun to make in very, very different ways (I would have had to TRY to make vids that were more different). To be honest, I didn't really expect anyone to guess the Zoolander one -- though I thought there were a couple of editing tells -- but I thought the Moon was jumping up and down and waving its arms and screaming my name, what with the rapid intercutting and mostly-instrumental electronic-ish music. I guess I was more sneaky than I thought!

For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I missed the Yuletide signup, but I picked up a pinch hit early.

Come Yuletide reveal, I was blown away, because it turns out that TWO lovely people wrote amazing stories for me.

The first is a fabulous, wonderful, touching story about Marceline and Simon after the Mushroom War; it's exactly the story I wanted after I Remember You.

Remember Me (1379 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Adventure Time
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Marceline (Adventure Time), Ice King, simon petrikov
Summary:

In a ruined city after the Mushroom War, a young Marceline watches as her only friend's memories slip away.



And my treat, a song from Marceline for her mother, which sounds just like something we'd hear in the show itself.

You Said I Would Be Queen (184 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Adventure Time
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Marceline (Adventure Time), Marceline's Mom (Adventure Time)
Summary:

A song.



They are both fantabulous, and if you like Adventure Time, you need to check them out.

I just watched the 1931 Dracula movie for the first time, and it was a somewhat surreal experience, in that it's ingrained enough in pop culture -- that I've seen enough sendups and homages and parodies -- that I really felt as if I'd already seen it, most of the way through.*

I've been trying to catch up on a lot of ~classic~ type stuff that I've managed to avoid seeing -- I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey a little while ago, and that's the type of science fiction I can get behind. (It also had strange moments of pop culture synthesis.) I know I say that I don't do too much sci-fi, but if anyone wants to recommend me something along the lines of 2001/Moon/Firefly/Donnie Darko, I totally promise to check it out. I... do not love Star Trek? (I know, I know, bad fangirl).

VVC happened, and it was awesome! I never feel right about writing up a con report because my short term recall and concentration are for shit, and I am terrified I would miss mentioning someone/something awesome, and ~slight~ then. Because everyone is so super awesome. And it was super awesome to get to see them! Even if my current hair colour apparently gave me camouflage powers. I am, however, super grateful that my school waited until Monday morning to give me the phone call of (further) bullshit, as that would have kind of ruined VVC, if they'd called on Friday.

I will say though that rhoboatwas kidnapped into doing a panel with me that rhoboat and I did a panel/vidshow on instrumental vidding, and it was pretty awesome. And people should totally vid more instrumentals, because instrumentals are awesome.

Awesome. Awesome. I think I've finally depleted the power of the word!

* Furthermore, I have ALL THE WORST IDEAS, and I'm not convinced that there should be a YA novel/series of novels where the ~twist~ (or premise) is that the kick-butt (but conflicted) protagonist is actually Lucy Westen/Westenra. In no way am I considering outlining this. In no way.

* At the request of deathisyourart, other horrible ideas I have: vidding the works of Georges Melies to video game inspired music; vidding 130s-1960s b-movies to techno; Korra to a "Paradise City" mashup; an Avatar/Korra bending battle to "Party Rock Anthem"; Futurama to polka; caper/heist movies to "Can't Touch This"; that fic where Tony Stark is part Veela.

Then again, that list should probably include vidding Iron Man to a mashup of Rihanna and Papa Roach, because literally every single person I had listen to that song didn't think it was going to work -- though some were more political about it than others. MADE IT WORK. \o/

Also, there is now a fantastic Adele cover in the comments called "Rolling in the Higgs" and it is ALSO AWESOME.

Title: Breakfast is the Most Important Meal
Author: cherryice
Fandom and Pairing: Avengers, Steve/Tony
Notes: I blame silverakira and kuwdora for encouraging me when I said that Tony and Emma should be BFFs, then capslocking with me. I do however, thank them for their patience! Especially silverakira, as she was excellent enough to beta even after this got a little away on me. Contains references to PTSD and a canonical suicide attempt by a minor character.
Wordcount: 11,100
Summary: In which Steve is kind of a fossil but his squishy parts and feelings are still intact, Bruce hates blueberries, there's a mysterious banging coming from Tony's lab in the basement, and Emma Frost is not actually a stripper.

Also at the AO3.
