[personal profile] chaila asked, Is there a genre or style you've yet to try your hand at, but really want to?

Hmm. I think most of the vids/AMVs I've made are either narrative or character/relationship studies. I'm not sure how I'd categorize "Too Big to Fail"--I guess it's a study. I did make an early attempt at a meta/multisource vid with the "FF Revolution" AMV, but it was kind of terrible. (Or rather, I can see how many ways it could be improved now.) I have a few meta and multi-source vids in the works, though, so I'm going to get to those genres pretty soon, hopefully!

I also haven't tended to do many vids that work against the text, or try to (notable exception: "Starman"), but there are some ideas that I'd like to do in that department at well. The other kind of vid I haven't done is a constructed source vid, but I'm mulling doing one of those too. I think that one would require up to a year of source-gathering, but that's not a bad thing. 


How many vid ideas are you nurturing right now? Care to share one of them?

I just made a spreadsheet, and I have no less than 46 vid ideas. Of those, about 20 are "active," and some of those are more active than others, partly based on promises I've made to other people. I definitely can only work on one vid at a time, realistically, and my method relies heavily on obsessiveness, so I don't do well trying to stop one vid partway to start another.
  • An Agent Carter vid with a song choice that I am very proud of. Yes, I have the song picked out before the show has even premiered.
  • A Wiscon premiere that I've been telling myself I'm going to make for the past three years. 2015 will be the year, since the vid will go there instead of me.
  • A Hannibal vid that I've already talked to a few people about at Wiscon. I ripped my sister's DVDs of S1 in preparation for that this week. I need to start outlining when I get back to California.
  • A movie critiquing the Nolan Batmanverse, which will perforce be very, very against the text. I am going to have to put a lot of thought into this one, but I really want to do it.
  • I've been planning an RDJ Holmes vid forever, with a really ridiculously obvious song, but the song is only obvious to me because of my weird take on the movies. Hence the vid.
  • I am very tempted to make a Snowpiercer vid. I have a great song picked out for it.
  • There's a vid I want to make for the December solar festival that I've been wanting to make forever. I thought I had the source on DVD, but apparently I don't. I need to fix that.
  • I found a great song for Orphan Black. I should finish watching Orphan Black, shouldn't I?
  • I want to make a Club Vivid vid, though I doubt it'll actually get into Club Vivid because VVC. Whatever, making a dance vid will be fun. Right?
  • I really do want to make that one constructed source book vid. 2015 would be the year to premiere it, for various reasons, so I need to get on that.
  • I may have also found a decent Indiana Jones vid song? For whatever reason, I haven't liked any of the Indiana Jones vids I've seen, and I want to make one of my own.
  • Also some due South vids. I even went so far as to download the mix stems for the song I have in mind and make my own mix of the song for the vid. Yes, obsessive.

Okay, that's probably enough. More info available upon questioning. :D

P.S. Kimono jackets etc for sale!

Make the club vivid vid you want to make. Don't let that post sway your intentions or feelings on the subject. Dance vids are awesome in many song choices and genres.

I kind of envy your having the perfect song for so many of these! I have so many half-baked ideas because the song I have is okay, but not great.

I really do want to make that one constructed source book vid. 2015 would be the year to premiere it, for various reasons, so I need to get on that.

Am I allowed to ask what book? I find this very intriguing! It's okay if not; I understand the need to keep things under wraps sometimes. :) And is the different from the Wiscon premiere, which is also intriguing?!
