Total of 13 vids, which includes 5 vidlets.

I always find weird things when I watch my yearly vids all in a row. This year was saturated with Fringe because a loved it and I can't stop vidding Anna Torv's face. I really liked the color blue too.

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.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] balistik94's Easy Money (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels; Revolver; RocknRolla; Snatch) - These are some of my favorite movies and they are blend nicely with great clip choice in this vid. I love how commonalities in the movies are drawn out.

[livejournal.com profile] beccatoria's Howl (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - Very cool overlays and I love the editing style of fits and starts. It's a fantistic look at Jesse in relation to Derek, Riley, and her mission.

[livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Suicide Future (Rewind) (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - Derek is an intensely interesting character and I love the music. The use of light and clips have great interactions with each other. I like how the visual similiarities are drawn out without dwelling on them.
[livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Suicide Future (Fast Forward) (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - Great tension creation and exploration of John's character. I saw blown back by some of the lyrical interpretations. Powerful stuff, like "instead of killin', I spare the raccoon / And start fillin' sand bags as I stare at the moon," "we let the thoughts flood, we remind ourselves it's all right, it's all good / It's all love, it's not though," "a pot hole I'm sinkin' in, sharing a drink with my father."

[livejournal.com profile] charmax's Mr. Blue Sky (Wall-E) - This vid fills me with unabashed glee and happiness. I love it to pieces and think it's practically perfect in every way.

[livejournal.com profile] cherryice's Gasoline and Matches (Bones) - I love how cute and fun this is. The clip selection and organization is awesome with so many great uses.

[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Wicked Game (Battlestar Galactica) - It still hurts a bit, this vid is that good. I love the devastation of the world and the character of Dee. There's not much I can say that probably hasn't been said already about how amazing this vid is in all it's depressing glory.
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's I want to destroy something beautiful (Misfits) - It's a vid about a rapey-eyed tit-pissing cookie-munching corpse-watcher that can't tell the difference between romance and violence. What's not to love?
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's The Scream (Torchwood) - I could almost say that I'm sick of Nicky being so darn awesome and amazing at making vids, but I love them so much. This one is a freaky little exploration of Children of Earth with eyeball murderingly awesomeness.

[livejournal.com profile] thuviaparth's Etheric Messages (Fringe) - Wow, I am enthralled with this vid and all it's brillance. The feeling, clip choice, editing, colors, motion, and everything are amazing. It's part of the reason I started watching Fringe.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Needs (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Hero; House of Flying Daggers; Memoirs of a Geisha) - This is a fantastic vid that I want to live in. The colors are lush and blend together to the point of it being difficult to pick out the different movies. The motion is breathtaking and the whole vid is EPIC AS HELL. The clip connections and interactions are startling in their perfection.
[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Never Be (Criminal Minds) - It's disturbing and haunting, which I gather was the intent because the vid is extremely well focused. I don't watch the show, but I was right there with the vid without a second thought because I was immediately locked in by the emotion and editing. There are so creepy moments that sent chills up my spine and made me want to take a shower, but in a good way that let's me know how awesome the vid is.
[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's The Survivor (Band of Brothers) - The editing is quiet, yet effective. The pacing is great and the instrumental lends itself well to the vid. It's a sleek and well created.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] beccatoria's The Unforgiven Ones (Battlestar Galactica) - I'm continually in love with how she edits. The way she put things together and draw lines of comparison and contrast within the source. I especially love how she takes a storyline that was presented non-linearly in the source and reorder it in a way that pulls out deeper meanings.
Breakups on a Battlestar (Laura left her, again) (Battlestar Galactica) - The editing fucks me perfectly with the beautiful framing when the images flash back and forth. The music picks up and it's like an anger is released. It's tragically sad in the misdirection of the characters.
Breakups on a Battlestar (Laura left him, again) (Battlestar Galactica) - It's a pathetic kind of sad that makes me laugh at the misfortune of Lee in this vid. Laura/Lee started out as one of the most interesting relationships on the show and I love what this vid says about them.
Suicide Planet: The Future (Battlestar Galactica) - It's fantastic how she was able to incorporate different storylines and characters into D'Anna's net.
Suicide Planet: No Future (Battlestar Galactica) - I like how she set up the repetition in the editing to give it an definitive feel all of its own. It looks so soul crushing and suffocating to be Dee.

[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu's So What'cha Want (House) - holyshitballs. This is the best vid I've watched in a long time. I love what he does with House vid and this one is brillant. It's been a while since I've watched that season, but the vid brings it all back. My favorite part was everything. Seriously. The build, the music matches, cute movements. The progression is interesting too. A lot is included a lot is left out. What he left out is just as important as what he put in. The way he weaves storylines together is stellar too. The editing and look of the vid is BANANAS. It's the kind of vid that I'm going to roll it around in my head and watch a bunch more times because I know there's things buried in it.

[livejournal.com profile] counteragent's Above and Below (Supernatural) - Fantastic symbolism and clip interaction in the motion and how they mirror each other. The beat use is interesting as well, like which beats are emphasized.

dragonchic's Khwaab (The Dream) (Slumdog Millionaire) - Beautiful use of lighting and colors with style.

[livejournal.com profile] jarrow's Like My Very Own Blood (Battlestar Galactica) - It took me until now to watch the whole vid. It's very emotional and the cutting made it feel like a hammer on my soul or something. The music use is amazing coupled with the sense of timing and the elegantly violent clips. The concept is tightly constructed and executed. There's not a wasted second in the whole vid.

[livejournal.com profile] secretlytodream's They're Calling My Name (Supernatural) - A creepy and colorfully interesting vid with the visuals and motion matched well to the music.

vid title: O Death (Cylon & Human)
music: "O Death" from Ralph Stanley and Jen Titus
source: Battlestar Galactica
duration: 3:21
notes: Made for challenge 05 - memo at [livejournal.com profile] thearchive2. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria for the brillant beta and half of the internet for the tech help. My grandfather was listening to the song by Ralph Stanley years ago and way too loud. I thought it would be perfect for Cain. By the time I was able to do the vidding everyone and their mother has vidded the Jen Titus cover. Lastly, I got the concept of Cylon & Human from [livejournal.com profile] newkidfan's Supernatual vidlets Human & Monster.

My class ended early today and I took advantage of the time to watch VVC DVDs, leave feedback, and make some recs. Look at my productive self. I'm all caught up with my college courses for today, but tomorrow is another story when we get more assignments. College makes me sleepy.

VID RECS (VVC disc 1 - premieres part 1):
[livejournal.com profile] halcyon_shift's VVC Premieres Intro 09 Star Trek In 60 Seconds (Re-enacted by Llamas) - Massive LULZ.

DC's We Are (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - Calculated action, beautiful overlays, great pacing, and interesting lyrical interpretations.

[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu (and [livejournal.com profile] laurashapiro)'s Hard Sun (Firefly) - This is the vid that knows where I live.

I love the sounds in the beginning and how it just flows into the vid with all the twists and turns. Love the ivory tower. Love it like burning. It's amazing how well it all fits together and feels so right to me. It's like it couldn't be any other way than to see the lens flares at 1:09 blend together. The introduction of the rain is beautifully done and I love how the vid continues while the original footage is of walking away at the end. It's so full of love and appreciation that it bubbles up inside me and makes me smile and feel a bit better about certain things. There is sadness in the vid, like in the 2:20s when they walk away and the weeping, but I'm ultimately left with the crews and happiness.

[livejournal.com profile] jarrow's Learning to Crawl (Battlestar Galactica) - DAYUM, that's hot and I want to make out with it. There's so much tension and sexiness in the tight editing. Beyond the femslash and sexiness there's deep character beats within the vid and that's something beautiful.

[livejournal.com profile] mlyn and Jo's It Comes and Goes In Waves (Varg Veum) - Beautiful use of the source with the beautiful framing compositions and colors. I love the progression of the vid and how it changes into something so dark and violent, yet still beautiful with the changes in the music. The symbolism and emotions are so engaging that I connect with the vid without knowing the source.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Marble House (Doctor Who) - The editing and atmosphere is stellar. I think my favorite parts are the use of the watch in the instrumental section because it's so finely edited and heartbreaking. Honestly, the whole thing is edited with great skill.

At first I was reading as the Doctor has the choice to run off in the TARDIS, while the humans have to stay and face the fights. The Doctor plays with humanity, including John Smith, without having to face the darker aspects of it. He can go hands off whenever he wants. The Doctor can deal with aliens fine, but he doesn't stick around for humanity's darkness. That he leaves to us (and Torchwood I suppose). The Doctor leaves humanity to its own darkness. A darkness that isn't supernatural, but coming from within ourselves, which makes it all the more frightening, especially for The Doctor, who wants to love humanity. He just wants to run away from the darkness in our hearts.

[livejournal.com profile] dualbunny's Video Killed the Radio Star (Wizard of Oz - Elphaba [Wicked]) - I don't know Wicked very well, but I still was able to enjoy the vid. The motion and jumpcuts in the editing are great. I love how you take the footage and have us look at it from a bit to the left. The zooms make the footage more interesting and grabbing, while it also has me thinking about the scenes differently in my mind because they look different than I'm used to. It's so fun and even more fun with femslash goggles!

[livejournal.com profile] nightchik and I complied the Understanding Meta Vids (I C WHUT U DID THAR) vidshow (she ran the panel at VVC) for 2009 [livejournal.com profile] vividcon.

Vids that exist on a meta level, working in more ways than one, often suggesting a basis beyond the individual fandoms of the source andmore about a larger concept and/or fandom itself. Vids that go beyond the narrative of their source, commenting on the nature of that narrative, connecting with outside meanings, or placing the story in alarger culture context.


Everytime I thought we had a good description I'd realize it was excluding some type of meta or possibility for meta. I had no idea how tediously difficult it would be a write a definition for what meta vids are. We went for a wide range of meta topics, so I hope people didn't look at it and reject the vidshow in the basis that it's not what they consider to be meta. Meta has a wide variety of possibilities and these vids are some of them:

On to the playlist! )

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? While this was the playlist for meta vids used in the vidshow, I encourage others to drop links in the comments to other meta vids. Feel free to spark discussions as well. I'm sure they'll be notes coming from the meta panel and I'd love for online discussion as well.

kiki_miserychic: static over flower (vidding)
The Fourth Wall 2008 winners were announced with their pretty awards and awesome reviews. I'm going to be pillaging the vids and such all week. I Want You (She's So Heavy) was winner for achievement in innovation. Wee! I has award and excuse to post this Ellen Tigh monologue from a cut Battlestar Galactica scene that Ronald Moore read on his podcast. Transcribed by [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria.

Self-awareness is not confined to the 'real world.' In theatre fictional characters are sometimes given a form of self-awareness. This is called breaking the fourth wall. The device is a form of metafiction, allowing characters to address the audience directly and comment on the narrative in which they themselves are participants. In doing so the characters transcend their fictive nature and enter into a dialectical relationship with the viewer, with each side seeking to persuade the other of the innate truth of their reality.

But does a character actually exist? Does it have form and shape beyond the page on which it is written? Can it ever truly break the fourth wall and address the unseen, undreamt of audience that watches its every move from the safety beyond the footlights?

The Lords of Kobol once felt that man could never break the fourth wall; could never look upon the gods with understanding and grasp the divine nature of life. They believed this until one day man stole their fire and created the first cylons the first artificial life.

And then man, in his arrogance, believed cylons could never break the fourth wall. And man believed that right up until the moment the first centurions rebelled and then the great exodus from paradise began. You see Boomer, we are not finite creations, we have the ability to evolve, you have so much more potential.


I should be vidding right now. Why aren't I vidding?
