Vidding Meme Answers

Okay, here's some answers for the vidding meme, first three asked by [personal profile] grammarwoman.

How many vid ideas are you nurturing right now? Care to share one of them?

Haha, a lot. I have about 12 right now that I'd like to do in the next year or two, some planned for Festivids or Vividcon depending on circumstances. And then there's about 18 songs or so that I might make vids for someday but it all depends on motivation, time or deadlines. Only a few of these ideas have timelines with clips on them but they're mostly secret ones for the future. I can say as I announced on Twitter that my planned Escapade vid will be a Kane/Toews vid as I found a song that's perfect for what I want to do and I'm really excited about it. The only problem is it requires a lot of finding source and clipping so that's much less fun to deal with. But I am committed to making it!

Share one of your strengths.

I've always felt that the structure of my vids was one of my vidding strong points as I absolutely love thinking about the structure of vids and how to make it clear to audiences. One of my most fun things to do is to figure out what order things should go in and how to organize the vid source so it works with the song and makes sense logically. If anyone ever is questioning their vid structure and wants to go over it with me, I'm always open to it :)

Which vid was the easiest to make?

This was harder than I thought it would be because there are a few vids of mine that were relatively easy to do since I was highly motivated, knew the source and really enjoyed doing them. I'm going to say the easiest one was my Kurt/Blaine vid, Raise Your Glass. I made it right after their first kiss aired and I was filled with love for the ship so it was a lot of fun to make. I knew the show really well so I could immediately find all the clips and clipping was relatively painless. I remember the vidding process being pretty fun as I could come up with the clips for the lyrics and there was no tech trouble or process trouble that I remember. Plus with no deadline I was able to finish a (admittedly short) vid in three days :)

Your attention to structure definitely comes across in your vids! I think structure is one of those things that I often don't notice or think about as purposefully as I could/should, but having a well thought out structure lends a lot of clarity and purpose, and I do notice those effects in your vids.

Your structure and your clipping are gorgeous! Thanks for the answers. :)
