Festivids are revealed! I am separated from my laptop for another 48 hours or so and I have a raging headcold, so I do not have signed vid posts up yet. I will post here and at the usual platforms when I do, and I will also email the Festivids mods so that they switch out the links appropriately.

Vids for Me
[personal profile] littleheaven made me Shake It Off, which is an Emperor's New Groove vid that is a joy and a delight. :D

Vids I Made
My assignment was All You Need Is Kill for ohvienna, which is an Edge of Tomorrow vid that I had been thinking about making since I walked out of the movie theater. There will be more notes later, but I'm very proud of this one.

I made two vids for [personal profile] jetpack_monkey, one a pinch hit and one a treat. The Call, to MST3K 8x20, Space Mutiny, was the pinch hit, and Tonari no Gamera, a vid of the Showa series of Gamera films, was the treat. I got ideas as soon as I read the Festivids letter via the pinch hit, and in general, making both of these was a delight. (Except for the pixel aspect ratio question in the Gamera movies. I'm still not sure I've actually figured it out.)

In general, I had a blast with Festivids! It was completely trippy to make three vids in ten weeks when my previous record pace had been one per year, and I have been filled with vidding confidence and inspiration as a result. I consider that a smashing success, and I am very much looking forward to making even more vids in the remainder of this year. :D

notes: This vid is for [personal profile] oyceter, who bid on and won my vidding services in the [community profile] help_for_ephemere auction last year. Oyce chose the source and the theme and suggested the style of song; I chose the actual song and made the vid from there, with a lot of help from a class on multimedia narrative that I took this semester. Huge thanks to [personal profile] kuwdora for excellent and timely beta comments, and to lingzhen for providing dinner during my last frantic push to finish.

Through the camera lens re-editing history gives imagination to the people. Wu Zetian and Shang'guang Jing'er are awesome. Hooray for awesome ladies of the Tang Dynasty!

Thanks to [personal profile] kuwdora, [personal profile] epershand, and [personal profile] thingswithwings for seeing the movie with me, providing help with the source, beta-watching, tolerating me blathering in chat, and then finally pointing me at tutorials so I could make AfterEffects do things. ♥

This is a cam rip vid; a remaster will probably happen (eventually) once I can acquire BluRay source footage.
