Dear Festividder

Dear Festividder,

Thank you so much for making me a vid! I am so excited to see what you come up with and I'm sure it'll be amazing. I love all kinds of music so follow your heart and what suits the vid for you. If you're looking for any guidelines, I tend to prefer indie pop, indie rock, hip hop, top 40, any kind of music that's emotional or that includes dynamic instrumentation. I love all kinds of vids, character studies, feels vids, shipper, meta, effects-y vids, fast or slow, dark, angsty or happy. I am less into vids with dialogue within the vid but if you have a great idea for it, go for it! Any rating or content is fine with me. I love Festivids so please enjoy yourself, I'm sure I'll love whatever you make!

American Ninja Warrior

I particularly love the women on this show so I'd love a vid that focuses on them. My favorites are Jessie Graff (Parker's stunt double on Leverage!) and Kacey Cantazaro but any or all of the women would be amazing to see a vid of. I also love Flip Rodriguez and Jesse La Flair so a vid about either of them would also be great. I think you could make an awesome vid of the narrative of the latest season (I love Issac!) or of the whole show in general so I'd love to see that as well. If you have a favorite contestant I haven't mentioned, go ahead and vid them as most of all I love the physical challenges on the show and the way the contestants overcome it leading to emotional moments. Outside footage is also encouraged if it helps your vid at all!

Billy & Billie

I would most love a Billy/Billie vid but a character vid of either of them would also be wonderful! My favorite episodes are 4 and 10 and I love the shared history aspect of their relationship. I'm less into their work lives (and work friends although I do love Billie & Drew) except for the Billy/Billie scenes that involve them. Feel free to make something happy and shippy or dark and angsty or both!

Blue Neighbourhood (SAFETY)

If you haven't seen this and have any interest in a three part music video narrative series about a childhood boyhood friendship turned gay romance with angst, you should watch them. I would particularly love a vid of Troye/Matthew (not sure of character's names so using the actors) that focuses and ends up on the happier side and focuses less on Matthew's dad than the actual video. However if you'd like to go dark or focus on either character, that's great too! It might also be nice to see a vid focusing on the young boys as I LOVE the puppy love between them and it was one of my favorite parts of the music video. Any use of the beautiful nature shots and imagery of the videos would be wonderful to see.

Halt and Catch Fire

I would absolutely LOVE a character vid of Cameron who is the cool genius programmer of my dreams. Anything focusing on her being awesome with computers and/or handling her emotions and dealing with other people would be amazing. I also love Donna especially her rise to do her own thing in S2 and would love a vid focusing on that. A Cameron/Donna vid (platonic or romantic) would also be incredible as it's my favorite relationship on the show. I have a serious thing for Lee Pace and love how he infuses Joe with charisma and captures his desire to make a visionary product while struggling with his own demons. I do enjoy the Joe/Cameron relationship as well (Cameron/Tom is cute too) but don't like Joe/Sara so less of that. I hate Gordon (he's the woooorst) and would prefer to only include him as much as necessary in an ensemble vid or vid focusing on one of the other characters. I would love to see an ensemble vid about the work involved to create the Giant in a S1 vid or the struggles of creating Mutiny in S2. I'm not a fan of Joe and Gordon's plot in S2 (except for the Mutiny stuff) so would prefer less focus on that. A vid celebrating computers and their possibilities would also be awesome!


WHERE DO I BEGIN? I have fallen head over heels with this musical so whatever you decide to vid for it, I'm sure I'll love it. I LOVE Hamilton so anything about his relentless drive and ambition to overcome obstacles and opposing views to leave his legacy would be incredible. I'd love character vids for Burr (WAIT FOR IT! feeels), Washington (HERE COMES THE GENERAL! honor feels), Angelica (so badass!), Laurens (idealist <3), Jefferson (so flawed but I can't help but love him and his intellect) and would also love to see a friendship vid for Hamilton, Laurens, Mulligan and Lafayette (+Burr?). I'm a big multishipper for this musical so you could make me super happy if you wanted to vid Hamilton/Laurens, Hamilton/Washington, Hamilton/Angelica, Hamilton/Burr, Hamilton/Lafayette, Washington/Lafayette (it's a thing, look it up!), Hamilton/Jefferson(/Madison), Hamilton/Laurens/Eliza, Hamilton/Angelica/Eliza, Hamilton/Laurens/Lafayette, Hamilton/Washington/Lafayette and if you're into the RPF side, Lin Manuel-Miranda/Jonathan Groff (LMM with anyone in the cast is amazing!). I'd love an ensemble vid focusing on the REVOLUTION (I've already cried twice reading the book about the liberty, equality, etc ideals the nation was founded on) or on the politics of starting the country. I'm less into Hamilton/Eliza (except in a poly context, see above) and would less prefer a vid about Phillip and SADNESS but if you really want to make me cry, go ahead :) Feel free to use external source, historical quotes/references/documents, cast footage or anything else you might need to make a vid for this source. Oh and I'm open to using any kind of music including the Hamilton cast recording, hip hop, any other musical or anything else you might want to use, don't limit yourself :)


First of all, I am a HUGE Rachel/Quinn shipper so if you want to vid them (romantic or platonic), you'll make me super happy. I love everything about their relationship from the mentor/mentee aspect, the fucked up toxic aspect, the fun happy aspect and the mother-daughter aspect. That being said, I'm a huge fan of both Rachel and Quinn as characters and a character vid exploring their issues would be incredible. Another of my favorite characters is Jay and characters that I don't like are Chet and Jeremy. I think you could make a super interesting vid about Everlasting and the fakeness of reality shows and how the producers negatively impacted the contestants lives in the name of good TV. Any kind of ensemble vid would be great!

The Wire

I love the show completely but if you're looking for what I'd particularly love vids for, here are some suggestions: Randy, Stringer/Avon, Stringer/McNulty, Kima, Wallace, McNulty, Prez (particularly S4), McNulty/Kima (platonic), Snoop, Dukie, Michael, Omar/Brandon, Carter&Randy or Lester. I'd also love to see vids focused on Baltimore as a city (I LOVE cities) and I would die for a vid that's very meta about the show itself. This fandom needs ALL the vids so please, I'll take anything.

Thank you Festividder!
