Posting while still slightly drunk and drinking, so point out if I've cocked something up because I probably have. Why am I doing this when nearly everyone else is drunk or hungover too? Whatev, have a CHRISTMAS VID.



vid title: I Wish It Was Christmas Today
audio: Julian Casablancas' cover of Saturday Night Live's "I Wish It Was Christmas Today"
source: Parks & Recreation, 30 Rock, The Office, and Community
duration: 2:13
spoilers: Only the Christmas episodes


summary: A silly, fun vid using NBC's Thursday night comedies.
notes: First and only draft beta-ed by my niece who said, "that's cool, poopey, make them dance again." Includes talky yelly face and is extremely late. [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria suggested that it's like an unopened present after the holiday. Made for the LULZ.

lyrics
I don't care what the neighbors say
Christmastime is near
I don't care what anyone says
Christmas is full of cheer
All I know is that Santa's sleigh
Is makin' it's way to the U.S.A.
I wish it was Christmas today, oh

I wish it was Christmas today
I wish it was Christmas today, oh, oh
I wish it was Christmas today
I wish it was Christmas today, oh, oh
All I know is that Santa Claus
Don't care about breaking or applying laws
I wish it was, I wish it was,
Wish it was, wish it was, oh

I don't care about anything else
Christmas is almost here
And I don't care what the newsman said
Christmas is full of cheer
I don't care about anything
Except hearing those sleigh bells a'ring-a-ding ding
I wish it was Christmas today
In the good old US of A

I wish it was Christmas today
I wish it was Christmas today, oh, oh
I wish it was Christmas today
I wish it was Christmas today, oh, oh
Santa's bringin' goodies to the boys and girls
In every nook and cranny of this crazy ass world
I want it, I want it,
I want it, I want it

Totally like a late unopened present! I'll be honest I only watch one of these shows and I'm horribly out of date with that one, but this was really...sweet, fun and weird. Those shows really all have a similar aesthetic and it really came through here. Hooray for totally awkward, embarrassing yet oddly sweet Christmases on NBC Thursday Nights! <3

Tricia Helfer is giving me a thumbs up, so it must be fun.

You watch Parks & Rec, right? Or 30 Rock? Those two I rec the strongest.

I'm in awe of Alison Brie and how she plays her characters. I didn't realize she was Trudy on Mad Men because her two characters are different and I'd never connected them until recently.

Annie is fantastic and I love her physicality, like her head shake and hand movements. Her and Abed can make me laugh by pointing their fingers.

Hee! It's like I'm taking down my tree on my day off and I discovered a present I forgot to open! I love the mirroring between all the sources. So cute and funny. Ridiculous hand gestures and facial expressions FTW.

This vid was lost under the tree skirt. I'm a little bit in love with Alison Brie and how she moves. I can't lie.

ALSO I forgot to mention that I frakking loved these credits, with the little Christmas lights and flashing colors! Such a neat idea.

One of my favorite parts of vidding is playing with fonts for credits.

30 Rock source = me filled with glee! A slightly belated dose of holiday cheer is always welcome as far as I'm concerned :-)

It still works because maybe I do wish it was Christmas today, even though it was just last week.

30 Rock is le awesome.

finally catching up! my present got REALLY buried in the closet. this is super fun! I'm curious how long it took you to make, and if you were drunk the whole time -- you are totally a Cylon Vidding Machine. sitcoms are so hard to vid, but you really captured their quirky and charming tone here (like [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria said, ha).

It didn't take long. I started it and got sidetracked with so many things to do. I think it was two days with technical bullshit getting in the way.

The fake documentary style of Parks & Rec and The Office helped the stale camera work. I looked for more interesting camera moves and framing in Community and 30 Rock to balance.
