Skygiants, "Our Ghost" (Chicago Typewriter vid)
thuvia maid of mars
thuviaptarth
Hello! I picked [personal profile] skygiants' Chicago Typewriter vid, "Our Ghost", to discuss in one of the In-Depth Vid Review sessions for Vividcon 2018. The audience at In-Depth assured me that this is a good recruiter vid even without context, so maybe you should watch it without context first. And then you can read this and watch it again! It’s a great vid, you can watch it more than once.

I tried to narrow down the context to what was most relevant to the vid, so this summary both leaves a lot out and spoils some stuff revealed fairly late in the series. [personal profile] skygiants’ own summary includes a lot that isn’t here and leaves out some that is. (I’m still surprised the vid doesn’t include the adorable dog, to be honest.)

Despite valiant efforts by [personal profile] absolutedestiny and [personal profile] heresluck to save me from my own lack of preparation, I was unable to show the helpful visual aids I had prepared. Therefore, I am inflicting them on you now.

Show summary, with picturesCollapse )

thuvia maid of mars
thuviaptarth
Out of all the great Festivids I've watched so far, these are the ones that've stuck with me most:

Love God Herself (Bitch Planet)
You're So Beautiful (The Get Down)*
Tanz aus der Reihe (Ku'damm 56)*
A New Day (Luke Cage)
The Greatest (Pitch)*
Voodoo in My Blood (The Witch)*

* = I haven't seen the source, so -- definitely no source knowledge required

This is a stupid hobby

Audio editing is the WORST. I don't know if this edit is even possible.

... I don't suppose you want to edit my song for me.

Vidding Love Meme
thuvia maid of mars
thuviaptarth
I am in a terrible mood, so I would like to make it better by seeing people say nice things about vids. Let's do a vidding love meme.


Instructions/Rules

  1. Comment with your username, a link to your vids, and the fandoms you vid for (or a selection you've vidded the most for, if you're all over the place).
  2. People will comment telling you what their favorite vid by you is, what show/character/pairing they think you vid best, and other positive comments. They can also mention what they think you should vid more of, or anything else concerning what they like about your vidding. If you don't want anything like suggestions for what you should vid more, just mention it in your original comment.
  3. Post it to your journal!
  4. This is a love meme. No wank, no insults, no concrit. Just the love!

Vid rec: "U.S." by innerbrat
thuvia maid of mars
thuviaptarth
[personal profile] innerbrat's U.S. is the post-Winter Soldier military-industrial complex vid I have always wanted. (Always = since May 2014 and more with every breath taken during attempts to watch Agents of SHIELD.)

I especially love the use of the "contagion" theme, the wider MCU footage (particularly Hulk, Agents of SHIELD, and Agent Carter), and how blood imagery is woven throughout.

(It also makes me aware of how often the MCU uses female double agents manipulating people, which, ugh.)

VVC 2015
thuvia maid of mars
thuviaptarth
Oh, hey, I should probably mention that I'm going to VVC this year. Let's hang out!

I haven't been in much of a mood for vids this year, but I'm hoping VVC will change that. It usually does.

In the meantime, also please rec me vids for:

Agent Carter*
The 100
The Legend of Korra
Orphan Black
Penny Dreadful

and also possibly:

Community
Parks and Recreation
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Recs for new vids about my eternal loves (Buffy/Angel, The X Files, Terminator: SCC, etc.) also welcome.


* Unless they focus on any of the white dudes except Jarvis, because I just don't care. Sorry, fans of the other white dudes! I totally support your interests. I just don't share them.

Stealing this from kiki_miserychic:

If there is any question you would like to ask me about any one of my vids, then go ahead! What I meant by a particular clip or sequence, why I chose to highlight that characterization, why I chose that song, what crack I was taking and where you can get some...anything. Anything you might like to know about how I made a vid, I shall do my best to answer.

In the unlikely event I haven't already told you more than you want to know above.
