Dear Festividder (2015 Edition)

Dear Festividder,

Hooray, we matched on something, so I already know you are a person of impeccable taste :) Before I ramble on a bit about my requests, I just want to say that I am so excited you are making me a vid of my very own, and that fact alone guarantees I will love it. So please vid what is in your heart and have fun doing it. When it comes to music I am open to most genres except thrash metal, opera, and country. If you're looking for specific preferences, then have a listen to "She Says" by Howie Day, "Start A Riot" by The Rescues, and "Down" by Matt Kearney for an idea of what I love best, but really I am fine with anything indie, pop, rock, electronic, 80's, even rap. I love discovering new music and the most important thing is that it works for the vid.

If you're after specific direction about the fandoms I've chosen, then the following... probably won't be a lot of help. It's mostly me rambling about why I've chosen that particular source, but hopefully that's of some use. Just know that I love all the fandoms I've chosen, and if you vid any one of them it'll make me super happy. Oh, and I love treats, so if you're not assigned to me but something here captures your imagination, please don't hold back! :)

So without further ado, the requests:

The Flight Of The ConchordsCollapse )
So, dear Festividder, there you have it. I hope you have fun, and I can't wait to see what you come up with. Thank you!


Dear Festividder

 Hello, dear Festividder!

Thank you so much for signing up to make a video. I couldn't be more delighted, so relax, the rest is easy :o) Whatever you make, I will love. I've provided some thoughts and suggestions (and some cases just general rambling) in case you're after some inspiration or prompting, but feel free to ignore all of it and vid whatever feels right to you.

In regards to song choice - I'm pretty open to most genres, so I'm not going to make any specific song requests, but I do have a few things I prefer to avoid. I'm not particularly fond of country, opera or metal. Other than that, you're pretty safe.

And now, to the fandoms:

Don"t Trust The B**** In Apartment 23Collapse )

The Flight Of The ConchordsCollapse )

Game OnCollapse )

MacGyverCollapse )

Morganville: The SeriesCollapse )

Paul Soares Jr Minecraft Let"s PlaysCollapse )

TwisterCollapse )

Two Guys, A Girl, And A Pizza PlaceCollapse )

So there you have it, eight equally-loved fandoms to choose from, and one already-happy recipient :o) Please, above all else, have lots of fun, vid what feels right, and Happy Festivids!

New Vid: Hearts Like Ours (80's Movies)

Since it's just screened at Club Vivid, I can now post my premiering video for this year's Vividcon!

Whether you're a misfit, a mannequin or a mermaid, in an 80's movie, there is someone to love you.

Dedicated to [personal profile] fan_eunice for helping me get my mojo back and general awesomeness.

HEARTS LIKE OURS (streaming and download at this link).


Dance Across The Floor is among the Art Of Vidding Awards "Best Of The Best" nominees. Voting is currently on for the viewer's choice round, so clicky on the picky to go to the voting page, if you feel so inclined :o)

New Videos!

Today was the great Festivids reveal. I can now thank, by name, the wonderful vidders who made gifts for me:

[personal profile] giandujakiss who made my wonderful Quantum Leap vid, Coming Home.
valika56  who made the epic Stargate video, Fight With Us.

And I can now reveal the two vids I made! Both are for Red Dwarf, and the recipient was [personal profile] laurashapiro, who wanted a vid that looked at the more serious aspects of the show and went deeply into character. So I made the complete opposite of that, LOL, with:

Better Dead Than Smeg
When you're the last human alive, you find friendship in unusual places.

Then I tried again and got halfway there, until the vid ran away with me at the midway point, and turned into Lister/Rimmer slashiness instead:

Given, Not Won
When all's been said and done, the things that are given, not won, are the things that you want.

Download and streaming of these and many others at my site :o)


LJ friends, if you find I've suddenly unfriended you, it's because you also post at Dreamwidth and I am cutting down on reading duplicate posts across both journals.

Armageddon 2011

Over the weekend I went to Auckland's only (more or less) con, for my annual weekend of geek. As usual, much fun was had.

Adventures in geek-land...Collapse )


Well, I did it!

As promised, I've ditched my LJ paid account and paid up with Dreamwidth instead. *\O/*

Honestly, I posted one unlocked post at LJ the other day and it's already been inundated with spam. I'm just sick of it. My extra LJ userpics run out in a couple of weeks, and the whole paid account in December, so I finally took the plunge. I've paid for the DW account, imported my icons, and deleted all bar 6 back at LJ. I've also started uploading my old-skool Cordy mood theme, which I made myself back in the day when I had time to do such things. Fingers crossed it works!

So from now on, posting at DW and crossposting to LJ, and monitoring friends lists on both. 

Dear Festividder

Hello dear Festividder,

Thank you for participating!

Firstly, just the fact that you are offering to make a vid in one of my chosen fandoms fills me with joy, so I know I will love whatever you make me.

Secondly, a blanket statement about music. I won't be requesting any specific songs. Music is such a personal choice for vidding and I want you to choose what you feel works for the vid best. Also, I've discovered so many new, awesome songs by watching vids, why would I want to limit what I could receive to only songs I know? The world is your musical oyster, Festividder. My only request is that I would prefer to stick to the mainstream or alternative pop/rock spectrum. I have fairly broad tastes but tend to struggle a little with full on thrash metal, country & western, or opera :o)

My requests:

The Flight Of The Conchords: Any vid of this show would reduce me to giggling and flailing of hands. Focus on one character, both the boys, whatever takes your fancy. It can be slashy, it can be silly, I don't care. I would prefer that their own songs weren't used for the vid, but if you feel that's the best choice, go for it.

Game On: Oh, this SHOW!  Any kind of vid would be awesome. I'd be equally happy with team vid or a Matt vid. Should you fancy doing the latter, my one request is that you don't mix the Matts. Either Ben Chaplain or Neil Stuke, I don't mind, but it would probably be weird to have both actors in the one vid.

How I Met Your Mother: A team vid would make me jump up and down with glee. If you want to focus on one character, Barney is my favourite, but I'd be delighted with any of the others, too.

Quantum Leap: Oh, Sam. *sigh* It's all about Sam. Extra points for bare Sam torso :o) If you would rather do a buddy Sam/Al vid, that's fantastic too.

Sing Blue Silver: To clarify, this is the 1980's documentary of Duran Duran's stadium tour of America. This would be the vid of my heart. I'd prefer a song not by Duran Duran, but again, if you feel that would better suit, then by all means use one.

Stargate (1994): Spader as Daniel Jackson. OMG that man. I'd love a Daniel-centric vid, or a Daniel/Jack buddy vid.

Storm Chasers: Okay, THIS would be the vid of my heart, too. Tornadoes! Reed, Sean, Tim! The TIV! The Dominator! It's on Discovery, eps are easily downloadable. The more tornadoes, the more I will squee. You could not go wrong with this vid, honestly.

Two Guys, A Girl, And A Pizza Place: Also known latterly as Two Guys and A Girl. Pete, Berg, Sharon! Together or separately, I'm bound to be delighted. This is the show that introduced me to both Ryan Reynolds and Nathan Fillion. That much awesome together on one screen, how can it be that this is not out on DVD? But you can download it, Festividder. Team vid? Awesome. Mad Irene the cat lady? Awesome! Focus on a ship, one character, or the whole gang. I will be filled with GLEE.

Thank you, Festividder, and please, most of all, have fun with your choice.
