Summary: "Good evening, Clarice."
Notes: Created for rhivolution for festivids 2013 vid exchange challenge (official pinch hit). For me, the Silence of the Lambs was a movie that seemed to always be on television. It subconsciously ingrained itself into my memory and quietly settled there. It's probably why I gravitate towards these type of movies and characters like Clarice Starling. The movie is so expertly filmed and performed. It's pretty flawless. I haven't officially participated in the exchange part of festivids since its inaugural year, but I like keeping an eye out for possible pinch hits or treats. I was initially hesitant to claim it because the task of vidding one of cinema's ultimate movie heroines was pretty intimidating. I hope I was able to do Clarice and this amazing movie justice.

Summary: Just another day at the office.
Notes: Created for KRIM aka [personal profile] chagrined for festivids 2010 vid exchange challenge (official pinch hit). I participated in last year's festivids challenge but I didn't sign up this year's. I checked online around the new year and scanned the 'dear festividder' letters for a possible treats prompt. KRIM's prompt stood out as one that was totally feasible and filled with fun possibilities. Then KRIM's prompts went up as a pinch hit the day vids were due and just two weeks shy of the golive date. Before I knew it, I was claiming it as my own and went from contemplating to actually doing. This vid has the fast turnaround period of any vid I've ever done. It's far from perfect but there's no denying that the source was a lot of fun to play with. The animation is stunning. There were so many clips that I'd earmarked for use in the vid that sadly didn't make it in. Oh, for a different, longer song! Clark with the fedora is sexy and I love that he isn't depicted as bumbling reporter Clark Kent. And Lois! OMG Lois! I adore her in all incarnations and Fleischer!Lois is no exception. She's ballsy, succeeding in a man's world, and all while maintaining her femininity. And Superman...oh Superman you are wonderful and good and soo mysterious. Hopefully the perfect song will some day land on my lap and I can have another go at this gorgeous source because it deserves more attention. Also, is it weird that I want to write/read Fleischer Superman fanfic because I totally do.

The only vid I made last year that didn't involve Forever Knight was for [ profile] festivids . I made The Neverending Story vid "Le Disko" for boom_queen. You can find my vid announcement here.

I had it as a private post that is now public. It doesn't seem to be popping up on my f-list. It might have something to do with my recent LJ problems.

The vid made for me "Cemeteries of London" was made by giandujakiss. I had my suspicions namely because she did a wonderful Janette vid a few years back called "Not an Addict" that I completely fell in love with (and inspired me to try my hand at vidding).

ETA: giandujakiss has made her post for "Cemeteries of London" public here. She offers a big and shiny version of the vid for download as well as a more modestly sized one. Also, available are streams on vimeo (which caused problems for some) and an additional one for BAM.

Length: 3:12 minutes
Summary: Super sonic overdrive...Fantasia style!
Notes: Created for boom_queen for the inaugural [ profile] festivids  vidding challenge. Her prompt requested "anything full of fun, fantasy shiny-ness please". How could I resist a prompt like that! I actually started editing down a different song for this vid but on a trip out of town I couldn't find my ipod so I opted for the first CD within reaching distance--my played only once CD from Shiny Toy Guns. The rest, as they say, is history. The jump cutting, which was referenced by a few people, happened quite by accident. I was unimpressed with a rough first draft and I tried it on a lark. "Happy, fun vid full of shiny" I kept telling myself and it worked!

[ profile] festivids  reveals will be later today. I'm on pins and needles to find out who did several of my favorite vids from the challenge but especially my gift, the spectacularly awesome Forever Knight vid "Cemeteries of London". I've got two guesses on the vidder and in a few hours I'll find whether or not I was correct or way off.

I know that there were several people on my f-list who were unable to see the vid, but I'm sure download links should remedy the problem. :-)

The vid I created is currently in a locked post and it'll go live as soon as the moderators for the comm finish updating the 2009 Festivid Master List. This is the link to watch for all those curious.

Lately, LJ has been eating my posts and throwing them up half complete. It also ate several unfinished posts that I had saved, so a listing of my favorites from the challenge will go up eventually. Hopefully my 2009 Fanfiction Meme will go up before the end of today. It's one of the posts that disappeared into the LJ ether (twice), so it won't be as detailed as my first attempts.

I'm finishing up my second month of reccing Forever Knight fic on [ profile] crack_van . It's a funny coincidence that I ended up doing two months in a row. I requested the opportunity to do FK recs back in the summer and when I saw that December was Small Fandom Month, I figured it would be a nice way to bump my request to the front of the line. Apparently, it didn't negate my original request to be one of the monthly featured fandoms and my request made it to the top of the list for January. Sadly, I only posted sporadically during the month but I want the fandom to have a healthy number of recs for any potential newbies. I pretty much spammed the comm last night and I'd like to get in five more before midnight.

Now that Forever Knight has been introduced to [ profile] crack_van  I hope other fans will consider throwing in some of their favorites. I've personally used the comm when sniffing around new fandoms and their fic and [ profile] crack_van  is highly regarded around fandom in general.

Tomorrow, February 1st is the deadline for porn battle. gnosticdiva has contributed three Forever Knight ficlets (two of which were based on my prompts. She has kindly compiled a post with links to all her contributions. The challenge ends tomorrow at 9PM UK time so that'll put the end at 3PM central standard time for me. I've got my own contribution to play with but time is an issue. Thankfully, it's short and relatively painless.

[ profile] halfamoon  starts tomorrow and runs for two weeks. I'll be leaving some Forever Knight prompts soon but there is no need to follow any of them. As long as you celebrate the awesomeness of women in fandom, it's fair game.

Hey all!

I finished the first draft of my [ profile] festivids entry.

::pumps fist in air::

I'm sure my entire household is probably sick of its song, but anyhoo. All this means my self-imposed removal from almost all things fandom (I'm doing Forever Knight recs over at [ profile] crack_van ) is over.

Posting will commence soon. Oh, and Happy New Year!

Dear Festvidder:

You are awesome. No really, you are awesome. Thank you for signing up to do this. I love my fandoms and to think that there's someone out there who enjoys one, two or all of them and is capable of vidding them fills me with so much joy. I'm very easy to please and simple things make me happy.. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles so please don't stress out on my account. Have fun. Heck, if you wanted to slap together some clips over some music and call it a day I'd be happy with that too. My suggestions are not set in stone. They are merely guidelines. Go where ever the muse takes you, even if it's the complete opposite of what I suggest. Again, I don't want you to stress out.

Here be fandoms )
