VividCon Premieres 2012 Intro Vid (multi) - EPIC AS HALE. -[livejournal.com profile] greensilver

Fields of Coal (The Unusuals) - I have such a deep love of the show that I was worried the vid would just be someone who watched for Jeremy Renner. I cannot express how happy I was with this vid. I had a doofy smile on my face the entire time, even at the sad bits, because I was just so happy that it existed. -[livejournal.com profile] barkley

The Adventure (Harry Potter) - Who doesn't love Neville? If I had feelings, I'd probably have gotten misty. I thought it was interesting during In Depth when it was said that most of fandom is coming from the "same place" as Neville. I don't know how true it is, but I do know that Harry Potter, the character, was like boring sand paper to me, so anything that makes someone else's journey the focus it fantastic. -[livejournal.com profile] greensilver

Forever Yours (House) - The enthusiasm and love in this vid is unparalleled. It took 8 years and it needed to be made and it needed to loved by me. For a brief moment I forgot that Wilson was totally dying. -[livejournal.com profile] anoel

Let Me Put My Love in You (Bitchslap) - This movie owned me, so I was sold before the vid even started. The added bonus was that the vid is so amazing and I didn't want to blink for fear of missing a second. It has the witty tongue-in-cheek winking thing going for it because it never takes itself too seriously and when it does, there's a hilarious edit to bring it back to camp. -[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain

Lateralus (Fringe) - I love how this stood out among the other vids because of how it handled the opening. It's all about consequences for actions. I'm continually torn over Walter's character because he's so many things and there's so many different ways to feel about his character. This pulls a lot of those feelings into one coherent vid. The cause and effect throughout the vid is killer. -[livejournal.com profile] rhoboat

White Rabbit (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) - Trippy as hell and I loved it. -[livejournal.com profile] shati

Masters of War (The Pegasus Rising Remix) (Stargate: Atlantis)- A lot of people in SGA fandom have been waiting years for a vid like this. Much like Lateralus from above, it's all about consequences. SGA tended to be a show of squee, but it always something dark with a mask painted over it for me. -[livejournal.com profile] bironic

Possession (Legend of the Seeker) - So beautiful. -[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu

The Lightning Strike (multi) - When the vid first started my thought was, "ohhh, Nicky would hate this. It's a bunch of white dudes clowning around making war." Then after a moment I recognized the editing and realized it was her vid. Oops, that will teach me to not look at the program beforehand. This is absolutely the ultimate epic slash vid throughout history and beyond. -[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24

[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.

The internet is so dead you'd think it was a holiday or something.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] giandujakiss's Believe (Supernatural) - Amazing song choice with movement that makes me want to stop blinking.
[livejournal.com profile] giandujakiss's One War (Dark Angel) - Beautiful working of layering that adds meaning and communicates so well. The progression, structure, and focus are amazing.

[livejournal.com profile] gigglemonster's Be My Yoko Ono (Stargate: Atlantis) - Really cute and quirky clip interaction with a natural feeling pacing.

[livejournal.com profile] halcyon_shift's I Want to be Evil (Multi) - Great transitions and connections within multiple sources and many of my favorite characters.

[livejournal.com profile] heyiya's Exit Music (For A Witch) (Merlin) - Excellent subversion of the show and characters. The vid has a soft feel, then the hard edges start poking out.

[livejournal.com profile] maichan808's Kinetic (Supernatural) - Nice flow of beautifully understated images.

[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Empty Hearts (Merlin) - Great stucture and detail to relationship that makes the vid feel like a ballet of hope for all of them.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Riddle in the Sky (Merlin) - Stellar editing, yet I can't really put into words how amazing this vid is. It's so rich and heavy, the weight of the visuals and music coupled with the editing and lyrics.

Ok, I've watched this video about ten times in the last two days. I have no idea exactly what makes it and Sara Schaefer so great, but I've watch it so many times that I need to pass it off to my flist: [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBzOfUTGTts]


VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] butterfly's Jacob Marley's Chain (Merlin) - A haunting Uther vid with simmer and barely contained emotions in the languid editing.

[livejournal.com profile] charmax's Smile (Buffy and Angel) - BEWBS ARE KEWL in this cute and fun vid.

[livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c's Supernatural (In My Pants) (Supernatural) - You haven't lived until you've laughed with this vid.

[livejournal.com profile] millylicious's Pandora's Box (Heroes) - She is a sick genius and I loves it. The vid is so creepy and amazing that I want to have it's scary Elle and Sylar babies.
[livejournal.com profile] millylicious's Soldier (Merlin) - Quiet sadness soaks this Hunith vid right along the sheer joy and beauty.

[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Love Lockdown (Battlestar Galactica) - An amazing destruction and construction of Gina/Cain that uses repeated imagery to give a more full representation with limited source.

COMIC/COLLAGE:
[livejournal.com profile] dogeared and [livejournal.com profile] aesc's Escape Velocity (Stargate: Atlantis) - This blew my mind with creativity and innovation. It's set before 5x16 with the Vegas!verse that pays such mind to composition and interaction between text and image that I could stare it at.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] chasarumba's Gemini (Jekyll) - The opening is very stylized and executed. The transformations, pacing, use of lush coloring, and power of the music is amazing. So many strings and threads of the series come into a cohesive movement with the music. The dynamics of the music are expressed so wonderfully. It's the 11th second and I'm sold completely, then I'm pulled in deeper. The never ending motion of "Hyde" with all the whirling and twisting of him and the camera is contrasted beautifully with the creepy stillness of him in the foyer with the boys. The vidder isn't afraid of holding on that clip and letting the composition and contextual meaning of the shot sink it. Expert use of the visual language of that episode.

lim's Sandman (Stargate: Atlantis) - Rather terrifyingly cute verging on disturbing reworking of McKay and Sheppard into a comicbook style.

[livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett's The Fifth Circle (Supernatural) - When I sat down to type feedback for this vid, I found myself grasping for the right phrases and platitudes. First, I view the vid as an unrealized reality. It's a look at what could and might be. It's a hypothesis, from my view, but maybe not the vidder and maybe not another viewer. The use of external footage is melded with an expert touch. The motion and connections between the disparate sources pull together to create a believable world. The mood and atmosphere is set up and the tone is conveyed within seconds of the vid. There's an ethereal quality that makes my heart ache for Sam and Dean. The contrast of dark and bright with the use of glow and layers is beautiful. I never would have thought that What Dreams May Come could be used for Supernatural, but the vidder makes me believe it wholeheartedly. As with so many of [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett's vids, I find myself ill-equipped to comment because I lack the ability to express why I appreciate the vid.

A handful of long overdue VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] charmax's Cry Me a River (Lost and Delirious) - Blissful editing that contains so much pain and love.

[livejournal.com profile] dayln03's Breathe Me (Friday Night Lights) - With such texture and effects, it feels light, yet heavy in a meaningful way.

[livejournal.com profile] keewick's Recessional (Dead Like Me) - Beautiful and understated editing that emphasizes the quiet motion and natural connections.

[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Reinvent Yourself (Heroes) - Great motion, use of beat, and pacing.

[livejournal.com profile] special_trille's Twist (Dexter) - A bittersweet mixture of music and source with blissful use of beat and lyrics.

[livejournal.com profile] super_kc's Karma Police (Battlestar Galactica) - After watching 4x01 of BSG, I went back to watch some Final Four vids and fell in love with this interestingly distorted and desolately disjointed (yet connected) look at the Final Four.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Back Then (Doctor Who) - Lovely editing style, song choice, and a killer piano section.

[livejournal.com profile] wistful_fever's Four Years (Stargate: Atlantis) - A comprehesive and graceful exploration of Sheppard/McKay.

My friends and I were out Friday at the lamest bar known to man. It was a friend of a friends' birthday, so we took her out. Of course my stupid self didn't know her dad was the mayor of my town. I am made of epic fail. She's fun, but I wish I'd known before. That way I wouldn't have done half the things I did. It was her first time in a club so we took her to a tame one. No gay bars. :)

My grandparents are on vacation again, which means I'm cooking Thanksgiving Slapsgiving dinner for the family... If you don't hear from me it's because I burned my house down. Seriously. I didn't know it took days to defrost a turkey and I'm thinking about taking my mini-blow torch to it.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] astartexx's Jesus Christ [alt: Wood and Nails] (Supernatural) - Every choice made by the vidder feels right from the black and white to the editing choices to the clip choice to the framing to the use of the lyrics to everything. It makes my heart squeeze tight. After this vid I think I need a hug as much as Dean does.

[livejournal.com profile] butterfly's Digging the Heroine (Heights) - It's understated, like the movie itself. The vid weaves come of the threads from the movie together.

gwyneth and jo's I Remember (Charlie Jade) - Striking and stark visuals with a harsh mood. Don't let lack of fandom knowledge keep you away.

Eunice's And She Was (Doctor Who) - This is the Rose I remember and love.
Eunice's Don't Touch That Dial (Doctor Who) - This is my Martha.

Jessie's The River (Angel/Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Smart use of the lyrics and quick editing with the drumbeats.

[livejournal.com profile] kazbaby's Eurydiceverse (Stargate: SG-1) - A layered and moody vid with so much under the surface.

kitty's On Top (Supernatural) - Great use of outtakes and other footage to create a cute and vaguely homicidal vid with a heart of gold.

Speranza's Lifetime Piling Up (Stargate: Atlantis) - Nice jump cutting, witty use of the lyrics, overlays, and creation of mood. It's adorable and endearing.

Amanda, some of her friends, and I went to the Carnival of Terror and it sucked big. We had to walk forever to get to the different parts and they were lame anyways. Between one of the set ups there were guys with chainless chainsaws. One of them ran it over the backs of my legs when I went by and chased me, so I started freaking out (because they aren't allowed to touch the people) screaming "you can't touch me, you cock!" To which he replied, "you know you like it."

My brain feels like bavarian jello. I simply cannot retain anything else. I have reached my limit for this semester. I'm run down to the point where I can't get concerned about things. I was so worried for my Assistive Technology midterm, but I was blaise about my SensoryMotor one. I did well on both. For so long this semester I've been overwhelmed and I think I've finally shut down and can't take anymore in.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] _becca84_'s C'mon, C'mon (Chuck) - Well handled music and action with driving energy in the editing.
[livejournal.com profile] charmax's deus ibi est (Supernatural) - Perfectly odd song choice, cool titles, layering, movement, use of stillness and objects, transitioning, and paralleling.
[livejournal.com profile] charmax's Respectable (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Great song, pacing, lyrics, music, and use of linear storytelling.
dayln's Lay Me Down to Sleep (Battlestar Galactica) - Extremely pretty effects, layers, coloring,
di's Windmill, Windmill (House) - Way cool color, effects, pacing, clip choice, and editing that comes together in a sea of awesomeness.
[livejournal.com profile] greensilver's Ohh (Dante's Cove) - Makes bad tv look good.
[livejournal.com profile] jescaflowne's Another Sunday (Stargate: Atlantis) - Crazy fun that's this side of awesome.
[livejournal.com profile] sol_se's Halloween (Heroes) - I love this flipping vid for the editing and subtle effects.
[livejournal.com profile] thandie's Lepcis Magna (Supernatural) - Editing and pacing melded perfectly to the music.

I’ve finished my summer student teaching and I start at Ashland University in the fall. I cannot believe it. I still have to wait for financial aid to come in, but I can’t believe how fast college is going by. It’s insane.

Why did no one else in fandom tell me that David Hewlett and his wife, Jane, are having a baby? Flist, this is why I have you: to keep me apprised of the alarming rate at which people on Stargate: Atlantis are having children.

VID REC:
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24’s Venus (Heroes) - It winds and weaves Claire and Peter together beautifully.
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (Default)
For the past two weeks I've been working nearly 40 hours a week Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and student teaching 7:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday and Thursday, then going to class 4:30pm to 6:30pm is slowly sinking me into a coma. If you don't hear from me for a few days, it's because I'm sleeping.

BLITEOTW: It's the weirdest thing... Yesterday there were zombies all over town, so I stayed in and watched movies while they scratched at my door. This morning when I woke up, they were all gone. It's very weird, especially considering they danced like )

VID REC:
[livejournal.com profile] newkidfan's The Tree (Stargate: Atlantis) - A prettiful (yes, it's so good I needed to make up a new word) vid that will have you wide-eyed... and teary-eyed.

ART REC:
[livejournal.com profile] goss has a flipping beautiful Sylar artwork that needs to be admired by all.

FIC REC:

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu’s Vertigo (House) – Holy crap nut is all I can really say about it.
[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl’s Talk Show Host (Stargate: Atlantis) – A John Sheppard vid that will fuck with your head a little bit with it’s distinct and unique style.
[livejournal.com profile] martoufmarty’s Five Years Gone (Heroes) – A mainly episodic for episode 20 'Five Years Gone' (aka 'String Theory') with great tension, coloring, and effects that stays interesting.
[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24’s Freestyler (Smallville) – A frantically explosive Oliver vid with sweet movement, time toggling, and music matching.

The 15th I took my Civilization I final and I barely recognized some of the questions, so I was freaked out for a few days. I was worried I was going to have to take the class over again and I actually lost some sleep over it. Grades were released online Friday and I got As in Introduction to Ecology, Child Guidance and Management, Fundamentals of Music, and… Civilization I. I got a B in Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers, but I’m proud of that one because the professor was dreadful and we all had to teach ourselves. I can’t believe I actually got an A in Civ though.

Lib went to the doctor today because we’ve both been sick for more than a week and she thinks we’ve have a parasite and we’re going to die. I refused to go, but I said if she goes and it’s serious, then I’ll go in. I think we just have salmonella or something, which is not a happy thought. I can’t stay healthy lately.

Now that I’m not freaking out needlessly over grades, I can get on with the relaxing rec-ing.

FIC REC:
[livejournal.com profile] fox1013’s Wingman (How I Met Your Mother)- An absolutely perfect fic for the zombiepocalypse weekend fic(let) battle.

VID REC:
[livejournal.com profile] blithesea’s Too Good to be True (Stargate: Atlantis)- An adorable Ronon and Rodney vid with cute effects.

And now onto much better and prettier things, like Supernatural's Sam and Dean:

1024x768 . 800x600

Jennifer Morrison, Grey's Anatomy, The Office's Pam, Torchwood, Veronica Mars, Vogue, Tricia Helfer, Stargate: Atlantis' John, Dexter, Justin Timberlake, and Supernatural icons )

Seem how my question on the request board is getting NOWHERE, I come to my flist with my problem ) It fixed itself somehow.

Also, someone needs to stop me from making a Heroes' Sylar vid to Dj Moule's Stronger Forest
