At Vividcon, I VJ'ed the "Can't Live With 'Em, Can't Trade 'Em For Food" vidshow:
Showcasing funny vids about relationships - slash, het, multiple,
friendship, enmity or romance, anything goes as long as we can poke
affectionate fun at it.
This was my first Vividcon and my first vidshow ever, not just as a VJ, but the first time I ever experienced watching a whole bunch of vids on a big screen in a dark room full of people, rather than just me & my TV. It was a wonderful introduction to the con, and I'm grateful to everyone who showed up to watch.

I wrote short blurbs for the program book, worried that if I started to talk about why I love these vids, I'd take up way too much room, so I'm writing up more extensive notes for this post, instead.

I'd love to know what you think about these vids, and about the vidshow, if you were there. Also, if you download any of these and enjoy them, please do let the vidders know! Vidders get even less feedback than fanfic writers, and something as simple as an LJ comment saying "This was so much fun!" can make someone's day.

Thanks to everyone who helped me find the right fandoms for this vid, and especially to [livejournal.com profile] therienne and [livejournal.com profile] aka_arduinna, who captured a ton of clips for me and helped me to pull it all together.

ETA: Here's a list of fandoms used in the vid.

Feedback very welcome!

VVC yay!

I'm officially registered for Vividcon! All thanks to [livejournal.com profile] merryish, who did the actual registering while I was having dinner elsewhere.
Yay!

(Now I have to make a vid, don't I. Or two. Eep.)

Signups for attending memberships for Vividcon will open up next Sunday, February 18 at 1pm EST.

And for the first time, I'm signing up. Eee! Vividcon! Llamallamadingdong!

If you are wondering what I'm on about: Vividcon is a yearly con in Chicago in August that's devoted to vids and vidding. It is small, which is why you should sign up immediately after registration starts if you want to go, and also it is awesome. If I remember rightly, watching the vid DVD from Vividcon was the first time I ever saw vids on TV rather than in squintyvision on my PC, and I was just blown away.

I've said it before, but it bears repeating: galumping great thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elynross, [livejournal.com profile] halimede and both halves of [livejournal.com profile] flummery for beta-ing and to [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett for teaching me how to mess with motion settings and track mattes at the very last minute. You all rock.

Should you have any trouble playing the vid, I have outlined some solutions on my vids page.

I would love to know what you think, and that includes critical feedback, here or at marycrawford@squidge.org .

I'll probably do a post about the making of this vid later, once I have recovered from Saturday's fantastic family wedding.

Done!

I have uploaded my Vividcon vid. Wooo!

Galumping great thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elynross, [livejournal.com profile] halimede and both halves of [livejournal.com profile] flummery for beta-ing and to [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett for teaching me how to mess with motion settings and track mattes at the very last minute. You all rock.

Back to packing for holiday now.

How many pairs of trousers will I actually need in a place where it's 30 degrees Celsius?* You think more than three would be excessive? Hmm.


*(translation: hot.)

Pwned.

OK, look, I'm not defecting from H:tLJ or anything, but by gum I'm going to buy the Invisible Man dvds. If only for this interview. And because I hate watching shows on my computer, and I've only gotten about as far as Flowers For Hobbes, which is basically a bulletproof kink of mine turned into an episode, so. *g*

In other news, the Vividcon vid auction is open. This means you can throw money at a vidder and have them make the vid of your choice. And when I say throw money, I mean it - right now the top bid for [livejournal.com profile] permetaform, an excellent vidder who was insane brave enough to offer 'any fandom', is $320. Wow.

I keep thinking about it, and I don't think I have a vid in my brain that I badly want someone else to make. Not even the Buffy one to Nick Cave. Which I suppose is good, or at least frugal, but it's also a bit odd - what, do I think I'm so great that I want to make all my ideas myself, even the ones that consist of 'this is a great song that needs to be vidded' and nothing else? Maybe it's just that I don't want to tell another vidder what to do - I want to see what they make and be surprised, and I want to see a vid invested with all their passion for an idea or a fandom, not mine.

Now, if it was a story auction, that would all fly out the window - especially if H:tLJ were on offer. I'd probably go broke just to get all of you to write me stories full of sacrifice, angst, snark and manly cuddling. *g*

Run run run to Pythia's site, because she's posted new stories (new unless you're on the GoldApple list, that is) and a second part of her Herc/Buffy crossover.

I particularly recommend Gift of the Gods, which I've already read at least four times. I love it to bits. It's one of the rare stories where Hercules gets hurt and Iolaus dashes into danger to rescue him. Lots of action, derring-do and clever old hunter's tricks, excellent worldbuilding and characterisation plus a lovely dollop of angst: in short, this one has all the good things I've come to expect from Pythia's stories. I do have one small quibble with this one: I think it's not physically possible for Iolaus to carry Hercules for any length of time, especially uphill. Iolaus is strong, sure, but Hercules is a big guy (and the leather pants weigh twelve pounds, let's not forget that!). But that really is the only quibble, otherwise it's a wonderful story and I wish I could nominate it for the Iolausian Fan Fiction Award.

And then there's The Race, which is manic and funny and erudite and needs a longer rec than I can write at the moment. Go read.

At 13292 words and still behind. Am not allowed to watch my newly arrived Vividcon dvd's yet, but I cheated and watched one vid, the way a dieter will sneak one cookie. It was the ST:TOS vid 'Razzle-Dazzle', by [livejournal.com profile] killabeez and Tjonesy and [livejournal.com profile] hafital. I think I hurt something by laughing that hard. That final Spock moment finished me. Hope the rest of them are this good.
