Curated for WisCon (wiscon_vidparty) 2014, "Dessa" - Collection of vids with music from Dessa.

Dessa is a writer, spoken word artist, rapper, and singer with work that contain narratives of female self-reliance. With the lens of feminist science fiction in mind, I curated a list of vids that meld with her unique wit and flow to exemplify the multiple media narratives available in our vidding world.

1. [livejournal.com profile] giandujakiss's Seamstress (Nikita)
2. [livejournal.com profile] isagel's Skeleton Key (Person of Interest)
3. [livejournal.com profile] astartexx's Matches to Paper Dolls (The X-Files)
4. [livejournal.com profile] sabrina_il's Dixon's Girl (X-Men)
5. [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria's Poor Atlas (Battlestar: Galactica)
6. [livejournal.com profile] chaila's Seamstress (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles)
7. [livejournal.com profile] chaila's Sound the Bells (Pacific Rim)

Also, how freaking brill is this poster for the vid discussion by Jack Shoegazer? The answer is very.

And I'm linking to the Thank Heaven for Little Girls Playlist - WisCon 2013 from last year (Collection of vids about little girls: their protectors, their victims, their worlds, their families, their missions, their deaths...)

Originally I had intended to include addition vids, but needed to cull the playlist for length, repetitions, and stricter adherence to themes. These vids were not included in the playlist, I did want to provide links for others.

[livejournal.com profile] chaila's The Crow (Luther)
[livejournal.com profile] milly's Mineshaft (Game of Thrones)
genusshrike's In the Bullpen (Avengers)
[livejournal.com profile] chaila's Dutch (The Wire)
lith's Children's Work (Life)

[livejournal.com profile] beccatoria's Matches to Paper Dolls (The Great Queen Seondeok)

[livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey's Vividcon 2013 Premieres Intro vid (Multi) - SO CUTE.

[livejournal.com profile] bananainpyjamas's I'm No Superman (Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes) - I love the balance of humor and sincerity that this vid strikes. The musicality hits the perfect chord of adorableness with the movements and narrative structure.

kass' In the Hole (Ripper Street) - Well, I started watching Ripper Street (Old Timey CSI) when I started this recs post and I've already finished it before posting this. I was drawn in by the vid's sound matching with the video, like the kid throwing the rock, then the sound of glass breaking.

[livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey's Slippery Slope (The Wickerman) - Fuck me sideways. I can't really explain my love for this vid because it's so wrapped in a strange feeling of despair and dread. The use of the movie is so well done, like the slight movements within the clips. The most well known images are edited perfectly in the vid too. The reveal, MY GOD, that man's stupidity... Yes, I know people see the movie differently, but I see that man as stupid in his morality.

[livejournal.com profile] anoel's Past the Feeling (Once Upon a Time) - The FEELS of my heart. I don't need to watch Once Upon a Time, I just need to watch anoel's vids. The imagery is gorgeously used and the music is seamlessly woven with them. Regina's story and how her tendrils reach out into the other characters and family. The vid is almost 5 minutes long, but I wanted it to keep going and I didn't want Regina's story to end. I'm bias because I will never be over Swan Queen. I love the segmented nature of the vid and I feel like that's the only way a Regina vid could work. She's a very compartmentalized character and she's written in such bizarre ways. I'm amazed at how the vid draws things together in such a way that it makes a beautiful fairytale... At one point I remember thinking over and over "SOMEONE GIVE REGINA A HUG."

[livejournal.com profile] shati's Hope on Fire (Queen Seondeok) - I've watched and heard about Queen Seondeok from [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria so much that I feel like I've watched the show. I feel like every Queen Seondeok vid has great clip choice because of the sheer amount of source that it has, yet none of the vids I watch seem stale or repetitious. Your use of the camera motion is lovely and the balance of close up shots with larger scale scenes.

[livejournal.com profile] astolat's When I Ruled the World (Person of Interest) - I liked the narrative structure and the use of lyrics in relation to the characters and story lines. The use and creation of the machine sections was especially lovely.

[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Graceless (Spartacus) - There were two vids made with the same concept and source. I love them both differently, but for the same reasons. The progression of the narrative was beautiful and compelling. I love the tender, yet fierce love that comes through in the editing. There's an obvious beginning, middle, and end, which was so brilliantly satisfying while still breaking my heart.

echan's Omega (Fight Club) - CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH I WANT TO HAVE HATE SEX WITH THIS VID, PLEASE? Like, I would let it do the most unfathomable things to me. The use of, not only the audio, but the SOUNDS. It's music to my eyeballs. I have such a thing for the use of spoken word in vidding.

[livejournal.com profile] butterfly's Firework (Supernatural) - I watched a different vid than most of the people I talked to after Premieres. I saw it as Charlie being fabulous and amazing and Dean loving her like a sister (because she's not a love interest threat because she's identified as queer). Through Dean loving Charlie, he accepts his own queerness and love of Cas. Dean embraces his own self by hugging those close to him, showing his emotions, and "rejects" his previous hetero-normative characterization. I said that and everyone on my side of the hotel room looked at me like I'd grown three heads. This is how I choose to perceive this vid and it's beautiful, even if it's not the vidder's intention.

[livejournal.com profile] lolachrome's We're All Missing Mama (Peter Pan) - I had a doofy grin on my face during this vid and I know it, even the when it was sad.

[livejournal.com profile] killabeez's Dyin' Day (The Hunger Games) - The desolation, my god, the desolation.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Run Boy Run (Game of Thrones) - One of my favorites that I can't textually render my thoughts without cracking my head open like an e.e. cummings poem. The clips are all so important and all the character's fates are so similar. For me it was all love of the narrative, editing, song use, and the characters coming through without getting lost in it all.

[livejournal.com profile] joyo and [livejournal.com profile] absolutedestiny's Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want (Infomercials) - I love this on a fannish level, of course, but also in a personal "real life" way, which added to my enjoyment. A group of friends and I play a game where if one of us yells out "person in an infomercial" that person has to finish whatever their doing in an epically and overly dramatic fashion. I've ruin so many things playing this horrible game.

[livejournal.com profile] findthesea's No Direction Home (Lost) - I never knew I wanted to see a Sawyer character study until I saw this vid. Having just did a rewatch of Lost (the chronological edit), I had an instant connection to it because the source was still on my mind and in my conversations. It's a rich vid with an interesting structure that I dug. First time vidders that make such great vids make me so jealous.

[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu and [livejournal.com profile] milly's The Polka Slayer (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - There's wild and wide humor. It ranges and whips around, which makes it a great ride. I thought it was going to get sad for a moment, but then the funny came back and that's my favorite part.
