Vividcon time again! No party this year, life was just too hectic for that. I’m lucky I even got to watch every single vid! I almost thought I wouldn’t get to. I’m very sad to hear that next year will be the last Vividcon! I have loved this con for almost a decade (even though I only attended once) and there will be a true void when it’s over. I’m not linking each vid title to the vid post this year, instead click on the link for the vid show and if a download link is available you can get it there. Also, again I just didn’t have time to be as comprehensive as I used to be with this. There are lots more great vids shown than I’ve recorded here. Presented in the order that I watched the shows.

You can see all the vids shown at this year’s con, and all years, here: http://vividcon.info/ Each of the vid shows is listed below in bold, and you can easily find them at the above link.
*Denotes vids that I’m really excited about



Premiers
Battleflag by Gwyneth | Star Wars

*Monsters of the cosmos by CherryIce | Thor
I really loved this! It was so different as an audio source, and I loved that it was all sciency for Dr. Foster.

Spell by Hollywoodgrrl | Carol
Interesting period piece that also has a lesbian relationship – even though the relationship seems to be the typical doomed thing. But it looks like there is more to it than that, and I’m interested…

Handclap by elipie & kuwdora | Power Rangers
This looked pretty cool! I’ve added it to my Netflix list even though part of me is going “……Power Rangers???? :facepalm:”

She Keeps Me Warm by kiki_miserychic | Inside Out
Really sweet, poignant vid that made me want to watch the movie.

Clean Light by skygiants | Steven Universe
I’ve never seen this show, but the vid was all about friends as found family and I loved it.

Stray Italian Greyhound by Butterfly | Yuri!!! On Ice
Finally I get to see a bit about this show! I really enjoyed this, and totally see why fandom has embraced it.

White Flag by Trelkez | Timeless
Looks like an awesome ensemble show with time travel!

Incredible Thoughts by pipsqueaky | Multi
Ha, a bizarre, awesome vid about Keanu Reeves.

This Is a Trent Rezner Song by rhoboat | Star Trek AOS
A fun vid that satirizes the seriousness of the Trek franchise through the new movies.

Wake Me Up Before You Go by sisabet | New Girl
Looks like a fun RomCom.

Everything Stops For Tea by Valoise | Multi
There’s lots of tea in fandom!

Shape of You by Butterfly | Multi
Lots of fun queer relationships.

*Wolves Without Teeth by Dar | Sense8
Awesome vid for Sense8, I’ve really got to finish this season.

Overcome by sweetestdrain | Star Wars Rogue One
Poignant look at the crew that made the destruction of the Death Star possible.

*Carry That Weight by Anoel | Star Wars
The women of Star Wars, and how representation has been a long time coming. Awesome and inspiring.



Welcome to Vividcon
Mood Swinging Man by Jill and Kay | X-Files
Interesting and moody x-files vid.

That's All by SDWolfpup | Highlander
Really good and interesting early After Effects digital manipulation work. I was impressed!



Auction
That's What's the Matter by Grammarwoman | Star Wars
Lol a funny look at the Star Wars series.

Blackbird by sweetestdrain | Harry Potter
Lovely, melancholic song for the quiet strength of professor McGonagall and the other characters through difficult times.

So much due South already in the con!



Cosplay
A lot of great creativity in this show. It was neat to see how some were more traditional music video type things, and others were more traditional vid type things with a narrative. I had never heard of cosplay music videos so this was a great introduction.

Fantasy Boyfriends! (How to Be a Heartbreaker – Free! Cosplay MV Parody) by o0Lemon0o | Free! Iwatobi Swim Club
Fun little vid.

Say Something by Lume Cosplay | Attack on Titan
Really interesting combination of 'singing' and action shots.

Emperor's New Clothes by Victor Lockhart | Black Butler
Kinda creepy and well done. I'm curious about the shot at the end that looked like the same person on the screen twice, and how they did that.

Accidentally In Love by Buddy Cosplay | Naruto
So cute!

Party Like a Russian by Rintamasunnta | Yuri!!! On Ice
Very cool skating and professional-looking camera work.

Genghis Khan! By NyxRising Industries | Hannibal
I absolutely don't watch Hannibal, but I was intrigued by the 'comedy' tag on this and it did indeed make me grin. Go figure. I guess that's why they say the fandom is WAY different than the source material.



Go Long
*Expo by lim | Iron Man
Oooooooo I love this as a character study of Tony! I still really enjoy the first Iron Man and Tony as a character, and this vid just dug deep into him. The pace was excellent throughout and didn't feel long.

*Some Time Around Midnight by bop_radar | Battlestar Galactica (2003)
An excellent look at Lee and the Starbuck/Apollo relationship. It gave me feels, and I haven't had feels for that show in a while. It’s funny, I would definitely have been an OT3 shipper for Anders/Kara/Lee had I seen this show five years after I did. As it was, I could never decide and really wanted her to be with both but didn’t know that was a thing. Now I’m somewhere between shipping her with either man depending on what I’m watching/reading at the time, and shipping the OT3.  Once I have an initial OTP/3 developed it's often hard to move me off of it.



Club Vivid
Telephone by One Hour Vid Team | Multi
Fun dancing.

Move Your Body by kuwdora | Fate of the Furious
A little spoilery since I haven’t seen the movie, but fun and makes me want to see it.

*I Ship It by Grammarwoman | Multi
Ahah I love it! Love the song, love that she included several of my ships.

Weird People by Anoel | Fandom
Fandom is weird, and I love it.

Bad Girl by Kitty | K-POP: Trouble Maker
Fun dancing.

*Light ‘Em Up by bessyboo | Ghostbusters (2016)
Awesome vid!

*Chase You Down by Gwyneth | Captain America
Steve, and the people he loves.

Ready Steady Go by M’lyn and Gwyneth | Multi
Fun car chases.

Filthy Mind by SE | Multi
Dancing and danger. Always excellent.

There Is a Light That Never Goes Out by ohvienna | Star Wars
Fun dance song, except there’s more going on with Star Wars than just fun explosions and this vid captures that.

I’m Not a Virgin Anymore by Luminosity | Highlander
As always, I’m captivated by a Highlander vid despite never having seen the show. This makes it look very exciting. :D

Ex’s and Oh’s by Roarkshop | Supernatural
Still fun!

Do My Thing by Laura Shapire | The Heat
Also still fun every time!

Warning: Might Lead to Mixed Dancing by seekingferret | Multi
Interesting compilation of lots of fantastic Jewish characters dancing.

Live In This City by heresluck | Ghostbusters (2016)
Fun ghostbusters vid!

Around the Bend by Danegen | Multi
Ladies goin' fast. What's not to love?

*Worth It by Rhea314 | Multi
Ladies over 50 are worth it. Loved it.

Goin' Down For Real by Anoel | Multi
Always sexy lesbians.

M.I.L.F $ by Moon | Carol
Interesting looking lesbian movie.

Bizarre Love Triangle by rhoboat | Deadpool
Fun Deadpool vid.

Tubthumping by sisabet and Trelkez | Thor
Fun song for Thor, I smiled.





Sweet Sweet Love
Skinny Genes by Charmax | Rizzoli & Isles
Made me miss Rizzoli & Isles

Be My Yoko Ono by Dayln | Stargate Atlantis
Made me smile. Love these boys always. <3

King of Anything by Cappy | Coffee Prince
As always, this vid gives me feels for a show I've never seen. So excellent.

One Voice by cosmic_llin | Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
I haven't seen much Deep Space Nine, so this vid was very intriguing. It looked like a happy poly family on the show, and I really hope that's what it is! It was a sweet vid.

Come and Find Me by chaila | Imagine Me & You
Oooo interesting looking lesbian movie! I hope it's as sweet as the vid looks.

*When You Were Young violace | Captain America
Touching Steve/Bucky vid that gave me feels.

I Wanna Dance by jarrow | Glee
Tons of fun dancing, and the lesbian couple from Glee! I never watched the show so I don't know much about the couple, but the vid was really cute and made me smile.



Vidding As Poetry
*Orono Flow (Data's Dream) by FG aka Gayle, ShadowSongs and Tashery | Multi
Really cool look at sailing over many fandoms. Spoiler! I didn't read the vid title before watching so I was surprised by the ending. It was really cool to think of it all as a digital dream by Data, though I haven't seen that episode so I don't know if that reading is correct.

Let's Play a Game by pingvi | Multi
Interesting little tidbit of visuals.

Moonlight by bradcpu | Sleepy Hollow
Very atmospheric vid for a show I have enjoyed.

*The Tree by newkidfan | Stargate Atlantis
I have loved this vid since I saw it almost a decade ago, and it's still stunning. It is truly visual poetry. It's one of the first McShep vids I ever saw and it was formative for my view of their relationship. I haven't thought about it in a while but I'm so glad to see it here.

*Flow by lim | Multi
I'm not sure what to say about this vid. Both "flow" and "visual poetry" are accurate phrases to use, but it seems to be somehow so much more. The vid pinged something in me the first time I watched it, and again when watching this year's stream, but I don't know how to describe it. It's just a really penetrating vid for me.

Paradise Lost by En Quatre | Shinsekai Yori
Pretty, sad, emotional vid.

Keep Your Picture Clear by obsessive24 | House of Cards
A great visual look at some (I think) grey characters (but I haven't seen the show).

Journey by SDWolfpup | Journey
Great choice for this vid show, beautiful visuals and editing.

Boom Boom Ba by Charmax | Xena: Warrior Princess
Another vid I have loved for almost a decade, and an excellent choice for this show.



Vividcon Rare Cuts
Fashion Is Danger by valoise | Star Trek: The Original Series
All the good and LOLtastic costumes of Star Trek TOS.

Fragile by Eunice and Myrtle | Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The fragile difficulty of life in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Everybody Wang Chung Tonight by Luminosity | Ancient Aliens
Cracktastic, befitting the series itself.



Challenge: Resistance
Something Wicked by Dar | Harry Potter
One of the few vids I've seen set to classical music. Very dramatic, good use of the highs and lows of the song.

Trouble by sweetestdrain | Star Wars films
Nice look at Lando, he doesn't get a lot of exposure.

She's a Rebel by bessyboo | Star Wars
The awesomeness that is Princess Leia and Carrie Fisher.



Inspiration
Come On by Gwyneth | Flashpoint
Interesting mix of humor and drama. Made me curious to watch the show.

Landsailer by skygiants | The Legend of Korra
Cool vid for Legend of Kora. Makes me curious to watch it.

Give It Up by jarrow | Multi
Great multi 80's movies vid.



Vividcon Classic: Big Emotion (2011)
Dante's Prayer by Killa and WOAD Society | Star Trek TOS
Powerful and touching. A classic Kirk and Spock vid for a reason. Gave me feels.

Give It Up by Jarrow | Multi
So much dancing fun!

What a Good Boy by Gianduja Kiss | Young Americans
Looks like an interesting show, particularly the bits with Ian Somerholder. Makes me interested to watch.

Dreams by Eunice | Marley & Me
Damn, what a way to finish out this show! I've never seen this movie, but the vid made me cry
pslasher: (Default)
It’s Vividcon time again! I had another party again this year, though it was a little smaller than last year with way less food – I just ordered pizza this time. Having a baby means I have a lot less time for stuff like that. But I was excited to still have the party! I’m not linking each vid title to the vid post this year, instead click on the link for the vid show and if a download link is available you can get it there. Also, I watched Club Vivid and Premiers last. By the time I got to those shows I was pressed for time so I didn’t make as many notes for the vids I liked. I just didn’t have time to be as comprehensive as last time. There are lots more great vids shown than I’ve recorded here.

You can see all the vids shown at this year’s con, and all years, here: http://vividcon.info/
+Denotes vids shown at my party.

Woah, Night Vale is way more violent than I thought if this vid is a good representation!

The Scorpio Races by Tifa | The Scorpio Races
Beautiful footage and vid.

The Name of the Wind Trailer by jumboskittles | The Name of the Wind
Interesting fantasy story. This book is on my To Read list and I’d be interested to rewatch the vid after reading the book to see how the vidder did.

/Trailer for Drastically Redefining Protocol by Zoetrope | Merlin
Great trailer for rageprufrock’s story! I loved the use of RL paparazzi footage for the “fictional footage” of the story. And the newspaper and TV manips were brilliant!

Grisha Trilogy by CarolynOnUTube | The Grisha Trilogy
I’m very intrigued about the story now. Very sharp and beautiful vid.

Written By The Victors – Vid by zulu | Stargate Atlantis
An excellent vid for an amazing fic by Speranza, a fic I still occasionally re-read.

+The Marauders by fakescottishaccent | Harry Potter
I don’t really know anything about Marauder era HP, but this vid made me really curious about it.

Cinder: The Lunar Chronicles || The Future Will Destroy You (FAN-BOOK TRAILER) by Rinoa | The Lunar Chronicles
That looked really cool, and it’s a book I already want to read.

+“Ancillary Justice” book trailer by bironic | Imperial Radch trilogy (multi)
I can’t tell it it’s all footage from the same movie, it’s edited that seamlessly. It’s a book that’s already been picked by my book club to read and now I’m REALLY curious to view it again after reading the book.

+[FanVid]Good Omens by YunJi Jung | Good Omens
Cute vid for the book.


Keys to the Kingdom: http://vividcon.info/vidshows/263/

+After the day’s work is done by stardust rain | Marvel Cinematic Universe
Excellent Fury vid, looking at him running Shield and that power, as well as a bit about the Avengers. You don’t get too many vids about Director Fury.

Supremacy by rhoboat | James Bond
Excellent editing. I like that it focused on M and her time in power, and how she handled it.

Monster by awkwardlyary | Empire
I still haven’t seen Empire, but this vid was amazing.

Empty Nest by sweetestdrain | Kings
Another show that I keep seeing amazing vids for at Vividcon and I want to watch.

All My Myself by T. Jonesy | Star Trek TOS
Surprisingly touching and sad. Also, it’s sad there is no download link to it.

I had a Vividcon viewing party at my house again this year and I thought it would be cool to make a list of all the vids I showed at the party, and the others that I really liked but didn't have time to show. It grew into a monster rec list - I don't know if I'll ever do a list this comprehensive again! But I think most of you may find at least a couple of interesting things to watch. If you love vids it’s worth the $40 yearly fee so you can stream everything (including some stuff that isn’t up online!) and get a DVD of some of the new vids.

Nicki Minaj is rocking my world today.

First, [livejournal.com profile] bironic made a multifandom vid to Starships that I'm totally in love with.  It's squee and joy and starships and so many of my fandoms all blended together with stellar structure that makes an awe-inspiring vid.  I can't tell you how many times I've rewatched it.  I can't rec it enough.


And also a little bit of eye candy.  Note: video is NSFW because of language and scantily clad women shakin what they got.


pslasher: (Default)

[livejournal.com profile] yeomanrand  has set up a new community called [livejournal.com profile] fandom_women with a focus on female characters from all fandoms.  Info:

Ever wished your fandom had a place where you could go to celebrate the lives and fictional adventures of your favorite woman? This should be the community for you: we focus on fanwork dedicated to and focused on women. We want personalities not defined by their husbands and sons, lives lived only offscreen, and/or more than even their creators were willing to give them.

Big fandoms or small, we love them all.

Genfic, femslash, and het that centering on canonically female-identified characters are welcome. This includes readings of these characters as genderqueer, transgender, or any other non-binary gender identity. Shipfic, especially for lesser-written-about characters, is lovely as long as it offers some kind of character-based insight/development. Please take a moment to consider the comm's purpose when you make your decision to post. This community exists to broadcast voices not usually heard, not just serve as another stop on your crosspost list.

I think the weekly fic rec post will be quite useful!
pslasher: (Default)

I've been sitting on these recs for a while now, and I figured that I ought to just post them. So, a bunch of vids that have delighted me lately.


Sleeping With Ghosts by [livejournal.com profile] butterfly , Star Trek 2009 and TOS:
Hush It's OK / Dry your eyes / Soulmate dry your eyes / Cause soulmates never die.
This is a really beautiful Kirk/Spock vid that combines footage from TOS and Reboot to show their deep and eternal love. Not only do they get a relationship in TOS, but they are fated to be together in the Reboot timeline because soulmates never die. Really touching, and it reminds me why Kirk/Spock is such an enduring pairing.

When the Sun Goes Down by [livejournal.com profile] buffyann , Queer as Folk:
Gorgeous boys, gorgeous editing and gorgeous source make for one gorgeous vid. The use of motion in this is so perfect, the vid just flows and grooves and *works*. And the boys! This vid makes a strong argument for watching QAF. This is so extremely well done that I can’t really say anything else except GO WATCH IT.

Red by [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24 , Merlin:
Come as you are sweetheart, come as you are / You know you've got nothing to prove. Gorgeous vid for Arthur/Merlin. Arthur is a tragic hero, and Merlin loves him anyway. This was the first Merlin vid I saw, and just from watching it I totally get and ship Arthur/Merlin.

Beast of Burden by [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain , Merlin:
OMG, does Merlin seriously want to make it with *everyone*, or is the vidder just that awesome? She did a fantastic job making him the desperate slut of Camelot.

Metaphor by [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza , Seah & Margie, Multifandom:
So very funny, I got a big kick out of this one.

Beautiful Dirty Rich by [livejournal.com profile] astolat , American Idol - Adam Lambert:
Gorgeous, sparkley Adam in all his dancing and singing glory! I just got so much squee and joy from this, it had to be recced. She’s also written a ton of Idol RPS that I’m loving and will have to rec.

Heaven Is A Place On Earth by [livejournal.com profile] rhoboat  , Supernatural:
OMG crack SPN! It’s Dean/Castiel set to stadium rock! I totally loved it, every gorgeous, absurd bit. I still haven’t gotten up the nerve to watch the show (yeah, I’m a wuss) but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the pretty! Plus, I’m really liking Misha Collins. His Twitter is hilarious, and then there is this video of him, Jared and Jensen at a convention that made me go o.0 SRSLY?!?. Nuff said.  (The second picture on that page is from that video, but the actual video is twords the bottom of the post with the other videos of Misha and J2)
 
Bromance? By Clucking Belles, Multifandom:
Fun vid about all the buddy shows we love. In particular I enjoyed the SGA and Psych parts.
pslasher: (Default)
One Night Fandom by [livejournal.com profile] eruthros and [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings
Multi-fandom (191 sources!!  All Yuletide fandoms, see the post for the official list.)  Rated R

It's a vid tribute to Yuletide, which is all about rare/ unusual fandoms and the "one night stand" nature of Yuletide.  I'm completely amazed by this vid, both intellectually and fannishly.  It totally provokes the glee I feel while watching or reading a particularly good work, or a fandom I love.  I love the flow from one scene to the next, especially the dancing scenes, the hugging and cheek touching. The song choice was good too, adding just enough sweetness and strength to tie everything together. The whips and licking and nekedness and kink made me squee loudly.  Much love for the fannishness of this vid, superb job editing so many sources together to create a cohesive point.  I haven't read much of Yuletide, but I'll have to remedy that.
