I was one of the mods for In Depth Vid Review so I wasn't able to take notes but you can find some notes here and here. I did my best at hearing and typing as accurately as I could but sometimes people had quiet voices or I couldn't type fast enough so these are not perfect transcriptions especially as they are not completely proofread.

Here are all of my notes on the Vividcon 2009 panels and vidshow reviews. I apologize in advance for their fragmentation and some of it being hard to understand, I did the best I could in recording and typing these up but missed some things. If you notice any mistakes, feel free to correct me and I'll change them. Also if you'd like attribution, let me know and I can do that too, it's just really hard to keep track of that AND take notes. I hope these are useful to anyone interested.

Yes, you read the year right. 2007. I FINALLY typed up all of these notes which I've been stopping and starting at random intervals. But better late than never, right? I have some notes in here but they're kind of scattered and hard to decipher. Apologies in advance if I forget people or things, it's been awhile.

And that was Vividcon 2007. I had an amazing time, my first Premieres vid went well and I got to reconnect with people from last year and meet new ones. My goal for the year was to say things in panels and once I did it, it got easier and easier so that now I feel (pretty) comfortable with it. Overall I felt a lot more sure of myself and not so overwhelmed with all the people I was around. Yay Vividcon!

Vidding Question Responses [Feb. 11th, 2007|08:41 pm]

I got 12 hours of sleep last night! I slept til 11 AM :) This is cause for celebration since I haven't been able to wake up after 9 or get to sleep before 10. So I'm very thankful to be well rested now.

Vid rec: [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Blindfold here. Angel/Fred and absolutely beautiful. The vid itself got me into vidding mode again with the motion, powerful images and interesting ideas. I am just so in love with motion *watches motion playlist*

So I finally finished writing down my responses to [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett's vidding questions.

Answer's to vidding questions )

I am SO excited for next Thursday's The Office. Joss Whedon is directing and talks about it during a promo here. I love that Joss is such an "insane fan". And my favorite quote "[Buffy] was funny. Especially when people died...That is kind of I think, my stamp." Hee. We still love you, Joss. And also, The Office is still the funniest show on earth and why isn't it Thursday yet???

So I had some of trouble at first picking out clips for my last vid and led to me trying to categorize some ways to do it. Here's what I've come up:

Lyrical:
-Completely literal
-Somewhat literal
-Metaphoric

Visual:
-Movement (external and internal)
-Color
-Effects
-Place

Narrative:
-Chronological
-Reverse Chronological
-Specific time frame (by season, story arc or episode)
-Limited Show(s), character(s), relationship(s)

Other:
-Idea
-Emotion
-Action

Obviously, usually clips are picked for more than one reason. Any other ideas are encouraged.

Thursday TV, Miscellaneous thoughts [Oct. 2nd, 2006|07:57 pm]

[Current Music |"Here in Your Arms" by Hellogoodbye]

First of all, Happy (belated) Birthdays to [livejournal.com profile] f1renze, [livejournal.com profile] jackiekjono, [livejournal.com profile] snoopypez, [livejournal.com profile] seanmegansean and [livejournal.com profile] trustingno1! I hope you all had a great day and have a wonderful year.

Thursdays are quickly becoming my favorite day ever with all the great TV on. So here are some of my reactions to the shows I've seen:

Grey's Anatomy 301 )

Grey's Anatomy 302 )

Supernatural 201 )

All I can say is I'm thankful to have such an awesome Flist with all the great thoughts on both shows. From commiserating in Supernatural love to having good discussions about Addison, it's been fun to read and participate in. I also checked out a few episodes of The Office since it seemed like Arrested Development and I do like it. Michael is too funny, he's my favorite so far. Busy watching BSG as well, I can't believe the S3 premiere is this Friday! It's so much nicer talking about shows when they air. In other fannish news, I am so happy to get my Whose Line DVD, the day it came out. The gag reels and extra scenes were awesome and hilarious and made me adore Ryan even more. I am so thankful that I have a cash flow coming in with my new job which thankfully allows for lots of homework and surfing the computer on the side, allowing me to be able to pay for stuff and no longer feel completely like a poor college student.

In case anyone's interested, I updated my memories to list all the vid meta I could find, listed in categories to hopefully make them easier to find. I figured since I spend so much time going through all the meta, might as well make it easier to find. I also started putting some categories for vid recs but that's far from finished so many of the fandoms are not well represented with good vids. Thank you to everyone who has vid meta links in their memories along with [livejournal.com profile] permetaform for her Big List of Meta page, which all helped a lot. On a vid meta note, I have lots of ideas for what I want to write up...just no time right now. Sometime in the future, that's for sure.

I'm still in love with California, the warm weather glow hasn't worn off yet and each day I'm grateful for being in a place that makes me happy. I don't even mind it being cold or waking up early in the morning now because I know that it won't last long, I have warmth every day and can choose to sleep in til 11 whenever I want. It's all about choice and I love the freedom that I have here. A few weekends ago, I went to Huntington Beach at night and it was one of the most amazing experiences ever. Totally worth all the biking/busing/walking I did to get there. I love the ocean the most at night and one of my favorite things about it is that it's free, its open to the world. I wasn't even at the main beach and I could just walk in the sand and waves and feel at peace with the world. I was alone which was nice as I could freely relax and enjoy myself. I can't put into words what made me so happy about it, I'm just a nature person so it connected with me. But that's not to say I don't like cities too. I went into LA yesterday as I haven't been able to really explore the city since I've been here. I liked it, lots of things to do and see. Next time, I will definitely bring my bike on the Metrolink (which was surprisingly, quite nice) which will make it easier to get around. Next weekend: Disneyland! I can't wait.

Vidding Thoughts [Sep. 18th, 2006|08:06 pm]

[Current Music |Vividcon 2005/2006 vids]
[Current Mood |creative]

I have been in vidding mode the last two days, watching and listening to vids and reading all the vid meta I can. Vidding is so my primary fandom because although I have a lot of shows I watch and fandoms I pay attention to and read fic to, most of the time I just read fic for ships and am not interested in gen or daily happenings of shows. But I love gen for vidding, in fact I'd love to see it more and do more of it myself. I love to find out everything I can about vidding, I'll read almost anything about it and still be interested. And I still miss Vividcon, it feels like a dream that I went there, met so many awesome people and had such a wonderful time. Is it Vividcon 2007 yet?

More vid thoughts under the cut )

I've realized that I don't give enough long feedback to vidders. There are a lot of vids that I love so much and I watch a LOT but my extent of my feedback is nothing at all, "I love it" to a paragraph or so. I'd like to apoligize for this as I feel bad about it. I understand how much long feedback is appreciated and I LOVE vids and want to let vidders know how much I enjoy and think about their work. But I really want to try to give more detailed feedback and have made it my new mission to try to send it out as much as I can from now on. What's held me back from it in the past is my usual perfectionistic tendencies. I feel if I send a long feedback email for a vid, it'll have to have ALL my thoughts and reactions to it and I know that will take a long time. To add to that, I feel I have to write something brilliant and if I don't then I shouldn't write anything at all until later when I can come up with something smarter. This comes with the knowledge that I admire a lot of the vidders out there and think they are OMG, so smart, and so I feel kind of hyperaware of them and what they'll think of me. I've realized I just need to work with what I have for right now and if I think of something else in the future, I can always send that later. So hopefully, you vidders (and maybe fic writers if I can manage it) will see some long feedback from me in your inbox soon.

In other fandom news, I am still loving Prison Break and thought the new episode tonight was awesome. I am addicted to the suspense and I continue to love all the characters, getting swept up in their storylines. I wholeheartedly rec [livejournal.com profile] f1renze's vid to the show, Ragged Ass Road which captures everything I've wanted to see vidded in the first season from the master plan to the brothers love for each other to the cool motion. Just a gorgeous vid that has continued with my great pleasure to recruit more people into watching the show. I'm also enjoying Nip/Tuck in all its craziness and am impressed that finally the slash between Sean/Christian is actually getting explored. If only more shows were on cable and weren't afraid of the gay. There really needs to be more vids to the show, its very pretty visually and has great editing especially during the medical scenes, making them worth watching. Also finished Battlestar Galactica season 1 yesterday and it was amazing. Just about every episode has an interesting, suspenseful plot and a great ending. The characters are great, I loove Starbuck and I like all the rest of the characters and their relationships. Can't wait to finish the second season so I can watch the third with everyone.

Vidding Links [Jan. 30th, 2006|01:31 am]

[Current Music |"New Frontier" by Benefits of Being Paranoid]
[Current Mood |thoughtful]

Just have to post a rec here first to one of the best vids you'll ever see, New Frontier made by [livejournal.com profile] heres_luck. It's a Serenity vid and its just amazing. Great song choice, cool movement and very interesting. It wows the mind too much to even comment. Go here: http://heres-luck.livejournal.com/183746.html to download and make sure to feedback!

Another great vidding discussion is located here: http://community.livejournal.com/vidding/493124.html where [livejournal.com profile] absolut3destiny posts feedback about a vid but more importantly goes over some interesting points about narrative, authorial intent and show/vid context. It's incredibly fascinating to think about and gives some tips on making videos better. Things I learned:

1) Look at the clip before and after each clip you put down and think about how it relates. Try to find a connection between clips. I think this works narratively and in terms of the visuals like movement, color, positions, etc.
2) The beginning is hugely important in setting up your vid so don't be random there.
3) Look at the context of the clip from what it suggests to a viewer who's never seen the show and someone who has.
4) Know what you're saying and find a narrative that illustrates that. Go from one place to another, make it a journey.
5) Make sure your song can carry your theme and only choose one. Don't have aspects conflict with each other to the detriment of the vid.
6) Focus on motion, pacing and the flow of the vid. Don't chop up sections using black/white fades unless you want to separate them.
7) Use dissolves to relect a passing of time and one thing turning into another but don't overuse.

On a personal vidding note, how come I keep coming up with video ideas that are mostly about Brian Kinney? I have 4 of them at the moment (3 B/J and 1 ensemble) and even though there are other things I want to vid, I can't seem to come up with songs for them. At the moment I need to actually start vidding although Premiere is giving me trouble so I'll need to figure that out. Technology can just be so annoying.
