VIDDING QUESTIONS MEME & WHAT'S FOR 2017? )

The end..... Till next time!

/ Vidding Meme \

winterevanesce: (the100: clark)
Felt like doing one of these since Vidding is on my mind. Stolen from this old post.

Questions / Answers: (Some questions removed fyi)

1. Describe your comfort zone—a typical you-vid.
I like easy, simple editing like clean cuts and crossfade transitions. If I feel like a vid could be best with added effects and what not, then that's when i'm out of my comfort zone. Also I get really intimidated with large amounts of footage, so you rarely see me take on TV shows that go passed 5 seasons or huge mutli-fandom vids. If i'm passionate enough about the video idea, I will eventually take on these kind of "huge or flashy" vids regardless. It's good to challenge yourself every once in a while.

2. Is there a genre or style you've yet to try your hand at, but really want to?
I feel like I've covered most of the genre's. I can't even think of one. There was a slower paced style that I wanted to try and I did finally this year. I always love fast everything and changing it up to something slower was a really, really nice change. There's so many different styles of editing, and so many that i've seen people come up with and they are cool as hell, but I like doing my "style" you know..

3. Is there a genre or style you wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole?
I still can't touch the whole "Voiceover" in vids style. I know there's a way to do it right, but seeing so many vidders doing it wrong makes me cringe to the extreme. I have seen some fantastic voiceovers / sound effects added though so it definitely can enhance the vid if done right. It's not my style though. I enjoy hearing the music than distracting as hell voiceovers that can sometimes make my ears bleed 'cause it's too damn loud or just sounds terrible. I'd rather see the emotion & story through the clips/song.

4. How many vid ideas are you nurturing right now? Care to share one of them?
I have so many vids that are sitting undone, either from lost of interest or what not. Plus a huge vid list I haven't even started. Recently for the past 2 years, I have finished all the vids I started so that's progress! I have several multi fandom vid ideas that I'd love to work on. Thinking of some action and more dance ones for next years CVV. I don't really like to share my "Ideas" too much online before I make the vids.

5. Share one of your strengths.
Probably one of my favorite strengths is my sense of musicality. I discovered this kind of by accident I feel like. I just dropped a certain clip and it went with the music (example: Wind sound effects in song - synced with Wind blowing clip). Ever since then, It's something I love to focus on in most of my vids. I also think I handle relationship or character studies pretty well and matching the emotion on characters faces with the music.

6. Share one of your weaknesses.
I feel like one of my weaknesses is probably not experimenting more. I kind of always have the mindset of "Let me just get this done as quickly as possible before i lose interest" kind of mindset, so I don't ever take the time to play around and make something I guess more "Attractive" or "Cool". Like there's so many times when I tell myself, I want to try something different - like maybe an effect or a different way of video editing, but I just don't take the extra step and time to do them. Maybe one day!

7. Point to a section from one of your favorite vids you've made and explain why you're proud of it.
I'd say out of my recent vids, Memo is the one I'm most proud of. There's a lot of great moments in that video, but my favorite section is "2:44-2:47 - I want you to stay" because it's so beautiful and it kills me literally every time. 

8. Which vid was the hardest to make?
Anything that was out of my comfort zone. Jennifer's body vid was #1 - that one took me FOREVER to finish because it was challenging for me. 

9. Which vid was the easiest to make?
 Anything that was short and sweet or a really small source. This one takes the cake for the easiest video I have ever made "Come a little closer"

10. Is there a section of canon above all others that inspires you just a little bit more?
"Boy Slash" canon is what inspires me more than any other canon. I'm always down for making these videos. I blame Wincest that started it all! LOL

11. If you only could vid one show/movie for the rest of your life, which show/movie would it be?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, that's my show FOR LIFE!! I could find so many video ideas just for this show, so It would last me a while.

12. Do you work mostly from start to finish, or do you vid sections out of order?
Start to Finish is the way I go, but most of the time, I do start on a section that I "Pictured" in my mind working with the song. Actually when I think about it, The bridge is always my favorite section to work on first.

13. Do you use any tools, like clip notes or storyboards?
Not really. I've been just using Markers in Sony Vegas sometimes with the name of a scene or with a line of lyrics I think the clip would work with. It's also good if you have a lot of sources, specifically multi-fandom. 

14. Describe your perfect vidding conditions.
Room must be locked!! Everyone loves to bother me, and I just hate the distraction so that's my #1 always. A good pair of headphones, snacks and water. Coffee is the best pick me up if you start getting real tired, lol.

15. How many times do you usually revise your vid before posting?
Not much at all. I make sure I'm happy with what I place on the timeline before moving on because it will drive me insane.

16. Choose a section from one of your earlier vids and talk about whether and how you'd do it differently now.
A lot... I've made a lot of mistakes and to this day those videos bother me. I ask myself, "why did I choose to do this?!" lol. Any vid that was extremely literal from beginning to end I would change. I've repeated the mistake of mishearing the lyrics and using clips that went with the misinterpreted lyrics so then it makes no sense when I actually find out the lyrics were completely different. I'm getting better about looking up lyrics before I start a video these days! I won't choose a specific vid or anything, but there were many.

17. If you were to revise one of your older vids from start to finish, which would it be and why?
I always thought about revising my old Romeo and Juliet video. I made it the first year I started vidding and feel like it had potential to be a good vid, but I just failed to deliver. I watch it occasionally and think how much better I could make it! I could even turn into a video with several movie adaptions of Romeo and Juliet to spice it up.

18. Have you ever deleted one of your published vids?
Well I removed my old 2006 vids from the internet, but I still have those saved in my hard drive. I did delete a long time ago two really bad videos I made, but to this day I actually regret this decision even if they were really bad. I always think about how I would have loved to see those "flop" vids again.

19. Do you beta yourself? If so, what kind of beta are you?
Yep; I feel like i'm pretty harsh with myself when i start the vid off, but after I get into the flow of it, I can kind of relax and enjoy myself more. I just want to make sure i'm completely satisfied with what I made before I finalize and publish it.

20. How do you feel about collaborations?
Never done one before, but I'm not sure if I would ever do one. Maybe if someone out there really wanted to with me, then I would consider it. I usually like to just stick with my own stuff though.

21. Share three of your favorite vidders and why you like them so much.
I love all vidders :P, why must I pick only three? 

Bradcpu - His videos from the beginning had inspired me to become a better vidder. His faith vid was my biggest inspiration. I became a fan ever since. His videos are soooo damn good. I was even determined to improve myself as a vidder to hopefully impress him with my vids one day, lol! It's true.

Grable424 - Perfect example of a vidder that can flawlessly integrate Voice overs and Sound effects in their fanvids. I am in awe of this vidders amazing vids! "Insane Like Me" is one of my favorites!

Sim Malec - Boy slash goals! I can't help but squee when this vidder post a new vid. I always love to see what the vidder comes up with. Lots and lots of good entertaining vids.

22. How do you feel about crack?
Love it! It's so much fun to make fun of characters, dialogue, etc.. Why not?! We all need a little humor here and there. 

31. Which is your favorite site for posting vids?
My journals, website, twitter, tumblr and AO3 - pretty much everywhere. 

32. Talk about your current vids in progress.
There's a lot just sitting in sony vegas waiting to be finished. I have one for Teen wolf, The Fall, random movies, multi-fandom ones, and soo much more.. The one I want to for sure finish one day is the Teen Wolf one, it's only on Season 1-2, but I absolutely love the vid idea and the parallels are on point! I have about a minute done. I'll try to finish that one soon. Then I want to work on a Faking it vid, now that the show is cancelled - I don't need hold off on making the video any longer.

33. Talk about a comment or review that made your day.
Anoel's review of Memo is so great! It made me smile so much and she was extremely detailed with her review. No one has ever taken the time to write a review like the one she did, so I appreciate it greatly still to this day.

34. Do you ever get rude reviews and how do you deal with them?
Not so much these days. I've had a few. One I got was on youtube when I was a newbie vidder. I wrote in my description how happy I was with the outcome of the video and someone wrote, "This sucks!!! This is not what a good video looks like."... Yeah rude much lol; But that comment drove me to work on improving my vids, so I can't be mad about it when it actually was good for me to read that. Also the dude was right, It really was a terrible vid, lol but of course back then when I made it I thought it was cool.

Now for the worst, one review I got actually changed how I felt about one of my vids. The review made me not want to watch "this" certain vid as often as I re-watch my others. I actually went years without watching it again. I even debated taking the video down because the vidder made me feel like I had done something really wrong and that my video came off a certain way. I felt pretty shitty about it and swore to never touch certain topics again. The reviewer apologized to me though and I get where they are coming from, but I still feel like to this day that I probably should have not made the video. 

I am a lot more careful about what I vid these days. I pretty much stick to what's important and meaningful to me.

The end.

Music Suggestion: Maybe something eerie or chilling. Whatever song or instrumental you choose is fine though!

I really love how happy this show makes me feel. So something happy, silly, etc would be great to see in the video. I ship both Josh/Geoffrey and Josh/Arnold. A character study on Josh's awkwardness would be pretty awesome to watch. I also like the friendship between Josh and Tom.

Music Suggestion: Anything should be fine. Maybe something that would be happy/fun, kind of similar or along the lines to the shows Main Title Song

4. Quantico (2015 - Tv Show)This show is pretty awesome. I'd be happy with anything on this whether it be an overview of the show or on a certain character(s). There's tons of characters, and every single one of them intrigues me. A character study on Alex Parrish would be great!

Music Suggestion: Anything

5. Scream Queens (2015 - Tv Show)I love everything about this show, so an overview of the show would be fine. I also love the Chanel girls, so a video on them would be really cool. Also Chanel Oberlin is my favorite character on the show if that helps.

6. You're The Worst (2014-Current - Tv Show)I love all the characters! I'm not picky. My favorite character is Lindsay *Second Gif above*. I also enjoy the relationship between Gretchen and Jimmy. Could also be a friendship vid between Gretchen and Lindsay and the crazy shit they do haha.

Music Suggestion: Anything

7. Young and Hungry (2014-Current - Tv Show)I love all the characters. Anything would be fine. I'm a big fan of Sofia Rodriguez. A video between the friendship of Gabi and Sofia would be awesome too. Could also be a video focusing on Gabi and Josh. I'm good with anything though.

Music Suggestion: Anything

8. Years & Years (RPF - Band)This band has become my obsession. I can't get enough of them. Anything would make me happy. They have quite a lot of very nice / gorgeous music videos and I love every single one of them. Could even include interviews, pictures, live performances, etc. Go crazy if you want! I'll take it all :P.

Music Suggestion: Anything is fine; Could even be a song from the band; Or maybe a remix of their songs - "Desire" (Gryffin Remix) is pretty awesome.

The Last of the Vidding Meme

Day 29 – What is your current project or projects?
Working on a few Ouran High School Host Club vids & RPF - Yuya Matsushita tributes.

Day 30 – Do you have a favorite vid you've made? What makes it your favorite? And don't forget to give us a link!
Well, I have a few that I really love in no particular order.

The 6 Between Us (Supernatural) - This has always been my favorite out of all the other spn vids I've made.
Let Go (Angel) - The first vid that I put my heart into making.
Losing Grip (ATWT) - I love me some Luke! Angst
Sleepwalking (Heroes) - One of the vids that I had so much fun making.
Tangled Up In Me (Playful Kiss) - My one and only cutsy vid so far.
Sick (Resident Evil) - my first action vid. Zombies! Milla! Whats not to love?!
Blow (Sucker Punch) - Another vid I had fun making. I also really like the musicallity in this one.

In conclusion to this meme, I still feel like I haven't made my "Best" fanvid. I do have some great ones, but I always feel like they are still missing something. In the future, I know I will make something that will really be fantastic.

winterevanesce: (spn: dean-vidding)
Day 26 – What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to do for a vid?

- AU Vid on top of AU source. Like A Boss.
- Making Dr. Horrible lip-sync to Britney Spears :P. Womanizer.
- Making Oh Ha Ni yell out, "Hey!", when in reality she is speaking Korean. Tangled Up In Me.
- Luke telling/showing Mason that his love for his boyfriend Noah, is better than Mason's love for Noah. My Love Is Better.

Day 27 – Where is your favorite place to vid? Where would be your perfect vidding spot?

At my computer desk with my beautiful 23' LED monitor and Bose speakers *even though I mostly use headphones so I won't drive other people crazy with the constant repeating of the song*. I'm pretty happy with my vidding spot. I just need a more comfortable chair.

Day 28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether vidding together, or having an artist or writer work on a piece about your vid?

I haven't, but maybe one day if anyone is interested :)

comment count unavailable comments @ Dreamwidth
winterevanesce: (Default)
Day 23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

I post my work mostly within Livejournal ([livejournal.com profile] pulltheplug_tk & [livejournal.com profile] tiklemeskittles) and also at my website. I post always at [livejournal.com profile] vidding and other communities depending on what fandom I vid. To stream my vids, I use Youtube & Vimeo. I recently started posting my vids at my tumblr as well.

Day 24 – Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your vid? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?

I haven't used many betas in the past and I currently don't use any either. I don't really like asking 'cause I always feel like no one would care to beta my vids. Maybe I'm wrong? I think I should ask for a beta though at least sometimes, 'cause I know in the past having one really helped.

Day 25 – Music – Do you listen to music while you rip source? Do you listen to your vid song immediately before vidding, months before vidding, or just while working on it?

I listen to the music that I want to vid for months until I actually go and vid it. I tend to replay the song over and over, because it helps me think of scenes in my head that I want to use with the lyrics/song. I basically picture the vid in my head before vidding it and that's what helps me decide if the vid is worth vidding/will work. After I vid the song, I literally will never listen to the song again by itself *Only when I play back the vid I made*. If I do happen to listen to the song without hearing it through my vid, I end up replaying the vid in my head as it plays.. So I'd rather listen to the song while watching my vid..
winterevanesce: (Default)
Day 21 – Sequels – Have you ever created a sequel to a vid you made, and if so, why, and if not, how do you feel about sequels?

I've never done a sequel to a vid before. I pretty much just finish a vid and move on. I honestly never even thought to do a sequel vid. The only thing that I would find would work with a sequel is on of my AU vids, but then again it would such a challenge to continue "the story" of the vid. I don't even think I've seen any fanvidders make vid sequels.. I'd be interested in seeing them.

Day 22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

I've participated in [community profile] festivids in 2010. I think festivids is great. I love everything about it. I love that we get to vid to small fandoms *it feels like I watch small fandoms the most*. I love watching vids on sources I don't know as well because it feels like "Oh so shiny! so new! omg I think I kind of like this! I should watch this show/movie!" I also like that we get to choose what fandoms we are willing to vid and what fandoms we would like someone to vid for us. Basically I enjoy the whole experience of festivids. I'm excited for this years! I will definitely be participating this year!
winterevanesce: (spn: dean-vidding)
Day 18 – Where do you get the most inspiration for your vids from?

Basically most of my inspiration is sparked by a fandom(s)/character(s)/relationship(s) that I really like.

Day 19 – When you have vid ideas, do you sit down and start vidding right away, or do you write down the idea for further exploration later?

I do both. Sometimes if I find a song that works for a fandom, I get all excited and start vidding.. But most of the time when I jump on vidding like that, I lose that excitement/get lazy and stop working on the vid which is a bad habit that I have. That's why I have like 30 vid projects that are unfinished *major fail*.. Sometimes it's actually a good thing when I stop working on a vid project and go back to working on it months or years later, the vid actually turns out even better. Other times, I just write down a vid idea and vid to it when I'm ready to work on it.

Day 20 – Do you ever get ideas inspired from other people's stories, vids, or art in the same fandom?

I do get inspired by other people's work. I read this one story once that I absolutely loved and I had planned to make a fanvid inspired by it, but I gave it up after having trouble finding all the outside sources that I needed to make it work.

Day 16 – Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

Of course I like Summaries! I usually summaries using a song lyric. Sometimes I make up my own summaries too.

Day 17 – Titles – Do you try to use something different than the song? Why or why not?

I always use the title from the song because the titles always work for my vids. Except for one vid I made, I changed the title completely. The original song title was "Living Rooms" and I changed it to a title I came up with, "The 6 Between Us" (a YED/Sam Winchester vid). The 6 Between Us was more fitting for the vid, which basically means "The Evil Between Us", since 6 is the symbol of the beast/devil.

SPN S6 Gag Reel

So funny! SPN always has the best Gag Reels every season. My favorite part is the "Touch It" bit with Castiel & Bobby, haha!



Maybe I'll finally work on my gag reel fanvid. If not, then maybe next year.. Haha, every year I want to make it, but then I end up waiting since I know another one will be coming out for the next season.

winterevanesce: (spn: dean-vidding)
Day 15 – Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a vid?

I've warned for rape, foul language, Gore, Violence, Disturbing Images & sexual content. Actually as I look back on the vids I posted, I realized that I haven't added some warnings on a lot of vids that I probably should have.

The strangest thing I've warned for? Incest (like wincest for example). Now I'm working on a Twin-cest vid (Which will definitely be the ultimate strangest warning) - This is nothing even close to like Dean/Sam. I mean yes, they are brothers in the show, but in real life - Jared & Jensen aren't.. The Hitachiin/Takagi twins are twin brothers in real life, so this is like... 0_0 OMG SO MUCH MORE REAL! But it's their freaken fault! They are way too damn Canon..

The Hitachiin Twins (Ouran Highschool Host Club)


You see what I'm talking about?! They are so canon. How can I not vid them? How can I not think dirty thoughts about them? Seriously they make it way to easy... *I'm proud of myself, because for like the first few eps of Ouran I couldn't tell the difference between them.. Now I can tell the difference as to who is who easily!*

I find it hilarious that my little sis (Now 13 years) loves Boy Slash. I showed her [personal profile] obsessive24 "Whenever, Wherever" vid and she loved it.

Day 12 – Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" vid of a favorite media source but set in a different fandom? (I.e., attempted to bring the 'feel' or 'mood' of one source to a different fandom, like the zombie Mary Poppins vid)

I haven't tried to vid an adaptation vid, but maybe one day I will :)

Day 13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you vid (canon shots vs. using shots out of context; AU vs. canon)? Has vidding for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?

I guess I prefer canon, but I also like fanon as well. I vid whatever I get out of the show, or if maybe sometimes I see something that maybe others don't see. I think vidding for a fandom definitely makes me think more about the show more than it would If I wasn't vidding for it to be honest.

Day 14 – Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever vidded higher than you're comfortable with? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the vid you're making is G-rated instead?

I'm comfortable with vidding mostly anything *except I don't think I'll ever want to vid something with the kind of gore that you see in Saw & FD (I have vidded FD, but I never even included the gore). I don't think I'll vid using NC-17 source unless I think the vid needs it. I usually like to keep my vids rated R and under *actually I don't even know if I have vids that would be considered rated R*.

*I was going to include Day 15, but this post was becoming way too huge.. So I'll post it later.*

Day 10 – Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone tried to vid a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?

I've never vidded a pairing that I didn't like. I do have some projects though that have been collecting dust.
(Love Me If You Dare - I love the two main characters and this movie, I just haven't had to motivation to finish it)
(GZSZ - Lenny/Carsten, Love these two as well.. but once again.. I don't have the motivation at the moment to finish it)

Day 11 – Genre – do you prefer making certain genres of vid? What kind do you tend to vid the most?

I noticed that I always find a way to make Dark Character study vids. I definitely vid these kind of vids the most. My dark vids seem to be my better vids as well *at least to me*. I'm attracted to characters that are struggling or have some kind of supernatural powers. I also like Psycholoical thrillers a lot (I have a vid that I'm working on with a movie like this - and man it's a challenge to vid..)

Relationship studies is another one that I enjoy to vid. If I see a couple that I love, I'll want to vid them. I'll do any kind of relationship study: The couples that are so cute together, the ones that struggle but find a way to love each other/work it out & the ones that hate each other/enemies.

Action is also a favorite. I don't vid to action as much as I'd like, but it's definitely always something that I can have fun with. I also turn to Comedy as well if I want to vid something fun & silly.

AU & Episodics are the genres that I vid the least. I love AU, but I don't make an AU vid unless I have a vid idea that I really like and think that it will work/be convincing. Episodics - I think i've only done just 2 vids in this genre. I'm the type that is greedy & LOVES to have as much footage as I can get and when I find a song, I am tempted to use a lot of footage outside from just using that one episode. Therefore, I just skip out of making an episodic vid.

OFF TOPIC REC:
AZIATIX
I can't STOP listening to this group's album. It's sooo good! I've been a fan of theirs since their debut several months ago. I hope America realizes their Talent! It's a shame America overlooks Asian artist. This is an American debut group; They sing in English.

That guy with the long hair is so good looking and has such a beautiful voice! I fangirl him hardcore.
You can find their other videos at youtube: "Go" & "Cold" (as well as a really cool "Cold" remix video)

Day 7 – Have you ever had a vid (of yours) change your opinion of a character?

I end up falling more in love with a character/couple after I vid them most of the time at least. Either than that, I don't think I've ever stopped liking a character after vidding.

Day 8 – Have you vidded with original source? If so, why did you use original source?

With my fanvids, I've used just only outside source (from other movies or actual stock footage). I have vidded to original source for several school projects.

X-Men First Class Trailer: Onew + Minho (SHINee) Version (Fanmade)

Day 5 – If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a vid, what did you do about it?

I don't think so to be honest. Before I vid, I'm usually set on what characters I'm going to use in the vid.

Day 6 – When you vid, do you like vidding a certain kind of male or female archetype?

Males: The Lost Soul - tortured man filled with angst & passion. Also, The Bad Boys such as Damian (TVD), Hwang Tae Kyung (You're Beautiful) - Which I haven't vidded much Bad boys, but hey I'd love to! & the guys that are just so damn hard-to-get like Baek Seung Jo (Playful Kiss).
Females: The Crusader - strong and determined heroines like Buffy (BTVS), Max (Dark Angel), Babydoll (Sucker Punch), Alice (Resident Evil) & Nikita.

OFF TOPIC:
"The Neverending Geurae"
[ The Neverending Story VS. "Be Mine" from Infinite ]
I don't think I can ever look at "Be Mine" from Infinite the same way after seeing this. LOL.. Just LMFAO!!
