aurumcalendula: Diana with shield (Wonder Woman!)

I saw Wonder Woman again yesterday with a friend I went to high school with! It hold up really well to multiple viewings (I can't wait until I can  buy the DVD). We went to a street festival afterwards, and I found a  queer Nancy Drew/Cherry Ames-ish parody at a local bookstore which looks delightful.

I've made progress on Batwoman vid (I kinda need to go and plan this out more than I usually do)

I’m kinda stressing about an upcoming interview (well tbh, less about the interview and more about the fact I apparently have to give a short presentation during it?) …which means I’m now procrastinating by thinking about vid ideas:

Videogames and Vividcon

I’m really enjoying Prey so far (and it’s gorgeous even on my laptop)! I think I may be around halfway through the game? (I’m trying not to spoil myself for once)

I'm excited for Vividcon! ...although my Vividcon vid submissions are somewhat complicated by the fact that I have an interview for a full-time position on Tuesday (I’m not sure if I will be able to attend if I get that since I’m not sure what the current vacation policy is) and I doubt I’ll hear back from them before the 26th (I have a couple of vids I want to submit to Nearly New).

a bibliography in progress...

...for the letter thing since I'm waiting for my LJ entries to import before I delete LJ.

(I swear about 20% of this is Coppa or Jenkins' stuff. I'm still going through some of it. Out of curiosity - does anyone know if anybody's written a book solely on vidding?)

Er, And is there a way to have a numbered list on here that's double spaced?

a kinda update on The Vimeo Situation

…so now that timeline is along the lines of:

24 March 2017: Vimeo receives an email from IFPI referencing a 21 March email [which Vimeo did not in fact receive, according to Vimeo Support] and complaining that 16 videos are still accessible

24 March 2017 at 12:29 pm: Vimeo removes my video (and presumably the rest of the videos at the urls listed), sends me an email that it was removed, and and a message on Vimeo saying it was removed


Maybe it’s just me, but email stuffs sounds a bit… shady on IFPI’s part? And apparently the version of my vid on Vimeo only had 3 views at the time it was taken down. Also, the Vimeo Trust and Safety people are apparently reasonably prompt at answering stuff, so that's something.

Vimeo removed my 'Shake It Out' Down to Agincourt vid because of a copyright claim from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.1 The version on YouTube one is still up (and not blocked anywhere).

What's particularly frustrating is that I can't message Vimeo staff about what the claim was regarding (you have to be following at least one person to message anyone. I'm now following a few people (including Vimeo Staff) but I still can't message anyone at this time for whatever reason). I think it's because of the song, but I want to be sure.

In happier news, I planted irises and the ACHA got pulled for lack of votes.



[1] as a side note, I think my videos have had a grand total of four hits since I uploaded the vid in question (I was mostly using the account as a backup of my stuff)

Dear Equinox vidder!

Hi! Thank you for making something for me!

I’m fond of songs with female vocalists, I like fast paced vids, and quick cuts. I also have a weakness for awesome women and femslash.

Below is some of what I like about the sources and some ideas/suggestions:

 

Alien: Isolation (Game)

Tags: Amanda Ripley

Summary: I love this game (even if it is stressful to play). I would really like an Amanda-centric vid.

 

The Fifth Element (1997) [safety]

Tags: Leeloo

Summary: This is a really fun movie! I would love a vid the focuses primarily on Leeloo.

 

Gravity (2013) [safety]

Tags: Ryan Stone

Summary: I really liked this movie, even if it was really stressful to watch. I would like something that focuses on Dr. Ryan.

 

Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies) 

Tags: Nyota Uhura, Jaylah (Star Trek)

Summary: I would love an Uhura or Jaylah-centric vid (or one about both of them)

 

Star Trek: The Animated Series

Summary: An Uhura-centric vid would be lovely!

 

Stargate SG-1

Tags: Samantha “Sam” Carter, Vala Mal Doran, Samantha “Sam” Carter/Vala Mal Doran

Summary: I love Sam and Vala is one of the reasons I’m really fond of seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1. I would love a Sam/Vala vid.

Dear Festividder!

Hi! Thank you for making something for me! I’ve only been vidding since January and this is the first Festivids I’m participating in, which is exciting (and also a little nerve-wracking).

I’m fond of songs with female vocalists, I like fast paced vids, and quick cuts. I also have a weakness for awesome women and femslash. Below is some of what I like about the sources and some ideas/suggestions:

Vividcon and vidding

The Vividcon DVD (and the con program) came in the mail today! I wish I could've gone, but considering the (condensed) grad school class I'm taking at the moment, buying a supporting registration worked out the best, logistically speaking. Also, I'm still working on the 'Apres Moi' remaster (classes have gotten in the way a bit)

some (brief) reactions to Vividcon 2016 (in which I use the words 'awesome' and 'love' a lot):
