kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytal)
December, but only because I backdated my festivids posts and they were released in January technically
25 - World Spins Madly On (New Amsterdam) - Woke up and wished that I was dead.
26 - #timeangels (Time Angels episodes of NTSF:SD:SUV::) - (It's a fake trailer.) Time Angels, coming this fall to Adult Swim. Come with Seconds, Minutes, Hours, Dash, Clock, Millie... and Mona Lisa as they repair tears in the fabric of time.

13 - Runs in the Family (Hannibal) - w͍̦͠ḩat ͜d̢o̸ ̷yo͘u ̓͂̍̽̋̽sè͆̾̑҉ë̽͆̕?̅̕ (character study of Abigail Hobbs in season one and two.)

August, but really they're vids that premiered at Vividcon, so, like, why do I even categorize these by when I released them online?
12 - ***Flawless (Disney Princesses movies (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Brave, and Frozen)) - We woke up like this.
13 - I Do Adore (Adventure Time) - Every little thing Marceline does, Princess Bubblegum adores. Kinda. (BUBBLINE 4EVA).
13 - You are a runner & I am my father's son (Teen Wolf) - a haiku for fictional ladies: / sorry your story / was left in such clumsy hands / i will avenge you


Total of 8 vids, 5 of which are under 2 minutes and could be considered vidlets... I was really into vidlets for the "get in, do the thing, get out" aspect.


My favorite video this year (of my own)
Runs in the Family. Absolutely my favorite vid I made this year. It's the most brain to actual timeline vid thing I've produced. My brain categorized all of the source in such a way that I made it a vid. Abigail is a character close to my heart and I stan for her 100%.

Least favorite
World Spins Madly On. I had a difficult time making it. I had offered Night Watch and Day Watch for festivids, but I quickly realized I wouldn't be able to finish the vid I was working on, so I put it aside and started watching New Amsterdam to make a vid. Then I scrambled for a song. Then I had to actually vid it. The product ended up with poor pacing because I needed the song to fit the concept of being chronological, which meant the beginning was boring as FRELLING FRAK. Looking back I do enjoy parts of the vid.

Most successful
***Flawless. It was inadvertently successful. I made it for Club Vivid, but it didn't fit into the other music, so the Vividcon people offered to let me move it to Challenges. But I didn't like the idea of putting it in Challenges when I didn't make it for the themes, so I asked if I could make ***Flawless my premiere in place of Runs in the Family, which I had already submitted. It worked out that ***Flawless became my premiere and I released Runs in the Family online pre-VVC. I made ***Flawless for Club Vivid thinking people would dance to it, watch it later, and think "oh ok I get it now." It was a deeply personal experience that I translated into a vid and I didn't think anyone would care about the vid beyond myself, but I was wrong.

Video most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion
I Do Adore. Only because I didn't know how to tag it properly for the fandom to find it. It was appreciated by friends' child relative and that's all I really wanted.

Video with single sexiest moment
You are a runner & I am my father's son. The :58-1:05 section is hella sexy with the threesome dancing because that scene in the show was awesome. I'm into it even though there is so much sausage in there. Mostly because the sausages seemed equally into each other as they were into Erica. Bless those sad-eyed little puppies and their love of extended eye contact. Then it goes into Erica putting her hand on Scott and Allison's thigh in a same scene deal where Erica tries to intimidate both of them sexually. Of course Allison on top of Erica is hot in a screwed up way considering how that storyline played out. Season one was beautiful fluke.

Biggest vid fail
#timeangels. I was trying to make a fake tv promo trailer thingy and I suck at it. I'm still obsessed with the concept and execution of vid trailers.

Hardest video to make
World Spins Madly On. Because of the reasons I put in the lease favorite category above.

Most unintentionally *telling* video
***Flawless was intentionally telling, so I'll say Runs in the Family because there's some intense connections to my life that I didn't realize until I rewatched for this meme. (Isn't that always how it happens?)

Things I've learned
I learned a lot about vidders' lyrical interpretation styles for the Vividcon 2014 Lyrical Interpretation Panel with hollywoodgrrl. I ate everyone's brains and gained their knowledge.

I realized that if I edit with 1080p source, I have to export it as 1080p for it to look good. I have some major exporting regrets this year. I'm upping my technical skills slowly, but I think I'm getting better with time.

I learned that I can't speak well in public about vidding for Vividcon panels.

Things to work on
I should ask friends to "beta" by vid summaries for VVC. The one for You are a runner & I am my father's son confused people and I overestimated the audiences' awareness of the title clip where I used a blur to focus in on just Erica to set up that it was about her. With a little of Boyd.

I need to work on exporting. I have a new laptop, but I can't even get Sony Vegas installed properly on it, so I might have to give up vidding and relearn how to knit.

I'm continuing from previous years with "I want to try vidding female characters that do more than beat people up and make things explode while being pretty." I think I accomplished that with character studies of female characters that are perceived to be weak.

Last year I said "I think this year I want to try considering the audience more to stretch myself." I didn't do it on purpose, but I made an audience appreciated vid for Vividcon premieres... So I'm going to call that goal from last year accomplished and go back to my "fuck bitches; get money" frame of mind because I'm unlikely to make any vid as audience appreciated as ***Flawless.

Wait, I can't call it accomplished completely because I also said "I'd like to make one vid this year where I actually vid for an audience." I kind of did that for Wiscon, but I think I'll keep trying to make something more audience minded for Wiscon_vidparty.

Vid projects I definitely want to get finished this upcoming year
I want to do my vid idea for the Taylor Swift 1989 vid album, which I plan to be my Vidukon vid. I want to finish my festivid assignment. I want to do some Vividcon vids. I had some good ideas for Festivids that I want to keep thinking about. They were treats for friends I wanted to make, but I'm a piece of shit and know I won't be able to finish them by the deadline.

Resolutions for 2014
To finish up the questions on the Vidding Questions Meme. J left a comment that I missed, so I'll start with those, but now I want to answer them all. I noticed some comments on vids I never saw, so I'll be going back to answer those after I finish my festivid.

Again, I want to go to VVC and hope that I won't be laid off again from work. I'm going to suggest a vidshow again because I really enjoyed pulling together the Femslash vidshow this year. I'm still really pleased with it for the amazing vidders that contributed, the diversity in the sources, the different styles, and the everything of it.

I'm going to make suggestion of some vidshows I'd curate for Wiscon_vidparty again this year too. I really enjoyed curating the Dessa Playlist in 2014. I already have two possibilities in mind depending on what else I find this year. It depends on what I get for festivids too. I played the long game with my requests and asked for things I put in personal vid playlists.

I changed my vidding note style and want to keep trying new journaling styles. I found an index one I want to try out for 2015.

Continuing to look at last year's resolutions, I failed at being "more social online" in terms of vidding. My interactions are mostly on twitter, which is great aside from the 140 character limit when I'm a wordy mofo. I don't think many of my friends are still on LJ without being on twitter. I'm a terrible friend anyway.

It's after 2am and I think I need to purge myself of work in progress vids that I'm not feeling anymore. So in 2015 I want to release some WIP vids to clear them from my head because nothing kills an idea for me like showing it to people.

OMG, my resolution should be to just vid more.

And in addition:
If there is any question you would like to ask me about any one of my vids, then go ahead! What I meant by a particular clip or sequence, why I chose to highlight that characterization, why I chose that song, what crack I was taking and where you can get some...anything. Anything you might like to know about how I made a vid, I shall do my best to answer.

Fear of Falling Apart - A Dean/Cas Fanmix for deancasbigbang




listen . for keeps (download) . tumblr

01. Sea of Love - Tom Waits
Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm drowning in a sea of love


02. Swampy Seconds - Magic Mouth
I got a feeling that I found my home
Through window pane like a flying stone
Settled in my place with a broken sound
You won't hear the glass
Falling on the ground


03. Desire - Meg Myers
Baby, I want to touch you,
I wanna breathe into your will.
See, I gotta to hunt you,
I gotta to bring you to my hell.
Baby, I wanna fuck you,
I wanna feel you in my bones.


04. The Golden Age - Woodkid
Boy, we are family,
No matter what they say,
But boys are meant to flee,
And run away one day.


05. When It's Time To Come Down - The Black Hollies
Take me home
I don't wanna be alone
When it's time to come down


06. Sleep Baby Sleep - Brood
Ignorance is torture but your love is right
Tip to tip a gentleman of the night
Feed my fascination a way our skin likes silk


07. Love Out of Lust - Lykke Li
Rather die in your arms, than die lonesome
Rather die hard, than die hollow
The higher that I climb
The deeper I fall down
I'm running out of time


08. The Body Breaks - Devendra Banhart
The body calls
Yeah, the body, it calls out
It whispers at first
But it ends with a shout


09. Reprise - Grizzly Bear
My love's another kind

10. Fade Into You - Clare Bowen with Sam Palladio
In your heart, in your head,
in your arms, in your bed under your skin,
Til there’s no way to know where
you end and where I begin


11. Happiness - Grant Lee Buffalo
Out of my body, been out of my head
Never mind the curse of war
Proud like a badge that just don't shine no more
Let him bring you happiness, happiness


12. 505 - Artic Monkeys
But I crumble completely when you cry,
It seems like once again you've had to greet me with goodbye

Femslash Vidshow (Hug a Woman With Your Legs) Recs (I truly rec all of these vids. There's not a single one I didn't enjoy and love. I tried to pull together as varied choices as I could, so please enjoy.)

In femslash things can be more fun, more complicated, more adorable, more colorful, over the top, but never sated. Where fear and propaganda can meet. Sometimes it's sad and sweet, sometimes it needs to be created or seen from a different angle. They can be separated by glass, separated by death, always in our hears, like a fairytale that was fated to be cut together from different parts to become something new.

1. Scarlett North-Cavanaugh's It Keeps Getting Better (Multi) - This is actually framed as an advertisement, but I really like how it showed current femslash relationships in the media today.
2. [livejournal.com profile] elipie's The Way We Get By (Broad City) - This is my jam. I love this show, this couple, this vidder, this everything.
3. [livejournal.com profile] shati's We Are Complicated (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - There's such a distinct understanding of Faith/Buffy. The nuances in the movement within the vid is great.
4. kitty's Don't Let Me Fall (Yes or No) - So adorable. I already have the source on my must see list. So adorable and sweet.
5. [livejournal.com profile] kiki_miserychic's I Do Adore (Adventure Time) - Self-rec, I know, but Princess Bubblegum and Marceline are so cute and in love. I'd originally started this for [livejournal.com profile] cherryice's festivid treat, but ended up rewatching the whole show instead of making the deadline.
6. [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Let Me Put My Love Into You (Bitch Slap) - How could I not include some exploitive and over the top awesome? Too good.
7. The Cylon Vidding Machine ([livejournal.com profile] beccatoria, [livejournal.com profile] metatxt, [livejournal.com profile] cyborganize, and [livejournal.com profile] heyiya)'s The Enemy Within PSA (Battlestar Galactica) - Funny and creepy at the same time. With boobs. My faves.
8. [livejournal.com profile] milly's Wonder (Once Upon a Time) - Breaks my heart when I think of Mulan. WEEE CCCOOOOULLD OFFF HHAAAADD IIITTT AAAAALLLLLLLL.
9. [livejournal.com profile] niyalune's Mrs. and Mrs. Blake (Teen Wolf) - Beautifully constructed trailer for underused characters (Jennifer and Kali). Epic as all hell.
10. [livejournal.com profile] anoel's Ready or Not (Faking It) - Another vid that made me seek out the source after watching. So cute and sad and adorable.
11. [livejournal.com profile] ghost_lingering's Signs (Dark Angel) - I adore this vidlet and everything that it is. Original Cindy was FORMATIVE for me.
12. zeppie9294's Let Her Go (The Last of Us) - So heartbreaking and wonderful.
13. [livejournal.com profile] fray_adjacent's Everywhere (Xena: Warrior Princess) - I think there's a guideline somewhere that femslash vidshows should have Xena in them and this vid is perfection.
14. FenrirsLittleSister's I Was Married (The Little Mermaid and Aladdin) - I'm so glad I was able to include this vid. The way the sources were put together and the storyline achieved fill me with joy. It's like taking something from childhood and reconstructing it into something new.
15. [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria and [livejournal.com profile] chaila's Hands Away (Fringe/Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - I knew I had to have this vid in my femslash vidshow. Come on, look at it. It's skillfully made and I bought into the premise immediately.
16. [livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl and [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna's Vitalum Vitalis (American Horror Story: Coven) - When they sent it to me, I watched it and cried so hard. I thought they were going to "fix" the ending with Cordelia and Misty Day... It's their fault that I didn't have a happy ending femslash vidshow. Those assholes (ilu tho).

Alternate Universe Final Vid for Those Who Long for Happy Endings: [livejournal.com profile] jarrow's I Wanna Dance (Glee) - Dancing Lesbians! Be good to yourself and be converted to Faberry and Brittana.

A special thank you to those vidders who kindly allowed me to use their work and those who created premieres. You are brilliant unicorns and I treasure you like pancakes.

Total of 7 vids, 4 of which are under 2 minutes and could be considered vidlets... What's the definition of a vidlet these days? In my mind the length doesn't always equate vid vs. vidlet. Hmmm.


My favorite video this year (of my own)
When I am Laid in Earth. I was playing with connecting clips going from frame to frame. Like trying to manipulate the viewers' eyelines. Utopia is a beautifully screwy show and I think I captured a lot of that. The visuals of the show were gorgeous and I loved pulling together things within frame and moving them around. Plus, Jessica Hyde is an interesting character and I can't wait to see what happens in season two. Blood dripping from a severed down a toilet paper dispenser in a public bathroom is the most beautiful images I saw in 2013.

Least favorite
All I Need only because I feel like I could have done more to even out the visual source. I used episodes that span across seasons where the look of the show changed tremendously. The earlier seasons are dark and moody with sparse color and the recent seasons are BRIGHT AS THE SUN by comparison. I have two Supernatural vid ideas that I really, really want to do once I get the last few clips to make my points, but I do not look forward to trying to make the visual menu balanced.

Most successful
Who Needs Sleep? simply because [livejournal.com profile] elipie and some others got what I was going for, but I genuinely did not expect. I find that if I expect no one to understand what I was going for, I'm super happy when someone does get it. Lower expectations is where it's at.

Video most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion
Endure and Survive because I love zombies and I think that everyone else should too. I quite like how the black and white turned out with all the different sources. It melds perfectly with the fic storyline. I suppose not many people could thoroughly enjoy it without reading the fic, but IDGAF because I love me some zombie!AU.

Video with single sexiest moment
Après Moi. There's a moment at about 2:12-2:20 where Sarah Shahi's character, Shaw, is advancing in a series of clips, which is sexy as hell. Shaw could kill you or kiss you and you won't know until after she's done it. I am so into the Shaw and Root dynamic on Person of Interest that I'm actually writing kinky fic of them. I rarely write fic, so it's huge that I'm actually trying for sexy times.

Biggest vid fail
Enter the Circus because I didn't remember to post the signed version online until I went to do this meme. Oops. I also failed at posting recs to livejournal. I did a few on twitter and posted all of my vividcon recs to livejournal though.

Hardest video to make
Endure and Survive because the different sources were a pain for me technically. I had trouble evening out the black and white and contrast and levels for everything. I can stand back and look at it and see a few things that I didn't balance enough, but I had a deadline for the Teen Wolf Big Bang and I'm very happy with what I made. It's strange for me to say that about a vid, so I'm obviously happy with it.

Most unintentionally *telling* video
That's Life. Barefoot in the Park is one of the first non-children's movies I ever got to see. That and Silence of Lambs and Leprechaun II, but that's a different story. Movies and tv had a large influence on my development. The tv show Mad About You and Barefoot in the Park formed what I thought a romantic relationship was supposed to be along with my personal examples in my young little life. I think Jane Fonda's character, Corie, was one of the first, if not the original Manic Pixie Girlfriend. I'm amazed that I understood what was going on in the movie, which is basically a newly married couple's first fight that escalates to the point where they're "trapped" in their "apartment." Trying to look at it objectively, I think this movie is part of the reason why I go for the Paul Bratter type and the Corie Bratter type in my personal life, which makes it telling.

Things I've learned
I think I did better with the technical aspects of vidding this year (this is when compared to my previous years and not the epic awesome skills of others). I learned how to chop off the letterboxing once I've rendered my vid. I started rendering my vids uncompressed with square pixels, then putting them into virtualdub to fix the frame if needed, and popping them into autogk. I think that's working out...

I learned some more about tumblr and vidding by researching for the tumblr section of the Vividcon 2013 Infinite Diversity in Vidding Combination Panel. It's like a rabbit hole that sucked me in and gave me thousand of new thoughts and new ways to think. And continues to do so today. I absolutely love how helpful tumblr can do for organizing vid time lines. With certain vids I'm able to pull gifs into the timeline as a placeholder for actual video clips into funnel them in.

Things to work on
Last year I said, "I want to try vidding female characters that do more than beat people up and make things explode while being pretty." I think I failed partly on that, but I've expanded myself a bit more and want to continue trying. The ideas I've had for 2014 vids have evolved a bit from violent women ideas, more of a different angle on the characters I enjoy. Last year I also said, "This year I'm going to focus on making vids that have higher quality video instead of lower quality for artistic reasons that make them muddy." I think I accomplished this one for the most part. I always struggle with technical stuff, but this year was better than most for fixing those problems.

In the past I've tried to be more subdued in my vidding and I've tried to widen my window of vid ideas. I think this year I want to try considering the audience more to stretch myself. I started caring very little about what people thought about my vids, which is freeing. I'd like to make one vid this year where I actually vid for an audience. I made my festivids with this in mind, so I'm getting a head start on it.

Vid projects I definitely want to get finished this upcoming year
I considered only making vids for cons this year, but I find that to do more limiting than I want. Instead I'll say that I want to make vids for Vividcon, Wiscon, and VidUKon. Anything else on top of those is icing.

Resolutions for 2014
Again, I want to go to VVC and hope that my school doesn't have another in-service on the dates. I e-mailed by supervisor about the dates. Driving to Chicago after a day of boring meetings sucked HARD and I will not be doing that ever again. I won't know if I have a job next year for a while. I'll probably be riffed again along with the whole department, which isn't a positive outlook. I'll have to find another job, so I don't know if I'll be able to enjoy myself at VVC if I'm thinking in the back of my mind that I need to find another job.

I was made of epic fail and didn't properly send the e-mail for VVC about putting together a femslash vidshow with lots of premieres, so I'm trying again this year... maybe. I'm going to make suggestion of some vidshows I'd curate for Wiscon again this year. I really enjoyed curating the Thank Heaven for Little Girls Playlist in 2013.

I want to continue filling up my vidding journal. (I find an old one I started years ago, lost, found it, lost it again, found it, lost it, and found it again, which I need to scan pages from for [livejournal.com profile] laurashapiro from last year's meme.)

I need to be more social online too. I'm so bad at that. I always feel like I'm trying to hard to be friends with people, like this:



And in addition:
If there is any question you would like to ask me about any one of my vids, then go ahead! What I meant by a particular clip or sequence, why I chose to highlight that characterization, why I chose that song, what crack I was taking and where you can get some...anything.

Challenge Amenesty
[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu's Thrift Shop (remakes) - LOLZ, entertaining concept and great musical combination. A cinematic thrill of a vid. The "I wear your granddad's clothes" section was especially satisfying.

ghost_lingering's Shephards (Firefly & Pulp Fiction) - Again, a spoken word vid was my favorite of a vidshow. I love everything about what this vid chooses to be. The way the three back stories are essentially the same was something that I needed to see in vid form. Book, Jubal Early, and the Operative were the same piece in the game at different levels of the game so to speak, parallel to Jules in Pulp Fiction. I still remember realizing that intentional vid connection during the Challenge discussion and I felt like a genius, lol.

[livejournal.com profile] anoel's We Don't Care (The Wire) - I'll never get tired of vids about the kids' season on The Wire.

[livejournal.com profile] milly's Mineshaft (Game of Thrones) - Ros, how I love thee and how her story was woven in this vid. Dessa, how I love thee too.

[livejournal.com profile] sisabet and [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's The Sellout (multifandom) - Troublesome, yet ultimately satisfying storylines, which probably says something about me as a viewer.

[livejournal.com profile] absolutedestiny's Age Like Wine (vidder's catalog) - Those programs look hella impressive and daunting. I love introspective and self referential things like this.

Glitterguts! (Desensitisation encomium)
[livejournal.com profile] absolutedestiny's I Fink U Freeky (90s Japanese erotic cyberpunk body-horror movies including 946 Pinocchio (1991), Rubber's Lover (1996) and Tetsuo: The Iron man (1989)) - I really enjoyed this. The movements within the frame along with the sounds in the music and the arrangements of images are fantastic.

[livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey's A Quite Serious Thematic Analysis of the Works of David Cronenberg (The films of David Cronenberg) - I love how director study vids bring out all sorts of terrifying parallels in the sources. They're utterly captivating visuals and they're made even more so apparent when placed together and intercut by the editing.

Brand New Classic Hits
[livejournal.com profile] cupidsbow's We Must Be Killers (The Defiant Ones) - I connected emotionally to the characters far more than I thought and more than I usually connect to unknown source in a vid.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's The Amazing Sounds of Orgy (Replusion) - This is what going mad feels like.

Kitovraska's Loneliness (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty) - Wow, love the additional line and text in this. It's constructed well, without feeling like it went for cheap moments to create the romance between Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.

A Matter of Perspective
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Blinding (Merlin) - DAYUM. I love the building pressure. Having heard the song tons of times before, I knew what was coming musically and I couldn't wait to see what the vidder did it with. OBVI, I was not disappointed. Excellent epic emotional zoom SKILLZ, breathing, and the happy little orange bit made my heart hurt.

[livejournal.com profile] heresluck's How I Got Over (The Wire) - Expertly accomplished study of Michael, Namond, Randy, Dukie, and those around them. I still get emotional about how well the vid follows their stories down their respective rabbit holes.

[livejournal.com profile] keely's Sugar (Smallville) - Still amazed at how this vid was able to construct Lana Lang as an actual character that doesn't depend on who she's with and not just a plot device.

Video Game Vids
[livejournal.com profile] milly's Riverside (Tomb Raider 2013) - Putting aside the issues I have with the game itself, this is a deeply emotionally sound and mapped out vid.

Zup's Dopest Dope You've Ever Seen! (Battlefield 3, Blacklight Retribution, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2, Crysis 2, Crysis 3, Medal Of Honor) - The title really does say it all.

UFец's Paper Planes (Borderlands 2) - I love that it doesn't take itself seriously, even though it could have gone that direction. There's humor throughout.

Hamps's Warrior Concerto (Assassin's Creed) - This has always been one of my favorite videogame vids because it ties so many things together, while staying visually fresh to death.

gef's de:part (Alan Wake) - The atmosphere is created beautifully with the aide of the visual and music choices. The editing falls into sync with the music without being too predictable.

evi's evo (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) - I envy the way it moves and navigates through the source.

Also Premiering (Non-attending premieres)
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Devil Wouldn't Recognize You (Elementary) - Very cool use of the coloring and added effects clips overtop. I especially love how Sherlock ripping down just his portraits seems more important than in the source when it's paired with the other uses of art in the vid. Love the choppy, yet obviously purposeful editing.
