Here's everything I've made that I actually don't mind people looking at, organized by year because there's not that much of it.

I finally caught up on Black Sails s4 and realized: now I can make the Max and Eleanor vid I've wanted to make since season three! So I did.

(Hopefully unnecessary but I know fandom disclaimer that I really, really adore both characters, and nothing contained in this vid should be interpreted otherwise.)

Also let me tell you, making a vid about two characters who spend 95% of their time onscreen talking is not as easy as it sounds. Oh my god, the talking.

Title: Celebrity Skin
Artist: Hole
Fandom: Black Sails
Character(s): Eleanor, Max
Size: 193 MB/116 MB
Content notes/warnings: blood/injury, violence against women, a very brief clip from an attempted rape scene, NSFW sexual content. No other standard warnings apply. If you need to know about anything else, just ask. (Also contains major season 4 spoilers.)
Summary: It better be worth it.

So a little over a year ago I made a Dark Angel vid solely for my own amusement, and it turned out pretty good. There was one clip--an important clip, probably the most important clip--that I just could not get to come out in anything but the most abysmal, muddy quality, no matter what I tried, so I didn't post it, resolving to fix this issue somehow, someday. I now accept that that's never going to happen, so here's the vid, bad clip and all. But the rest of it is pretty good! (Well, the overall quality isn't great because the show is from 2001. But you know. Pretty good.)

Title: Stuck to You
Artist: Nikka Costa
Fandom: Dark Angel
Size: 55 MB

THE CLAIRE VID, it's only been an entire year I've been working on this. Here it is finally, because Claire Novak is the most important and deserves all the vids and I love her SO MUCH. Thanks to Cecilia and Taylor for inspiration, encouragement, betaing, and having so, so many feelings.

Title: Storms Were Mine
Artist: Girlyman
Fandom: Supernatural
Size: 94 MB
Content notes/warnings: blood/injury, violence against women, a very brief clip from the attempted rape scene, parental death, decapitation, general show-level violence. No other standard warnings apply. If you need to know about anything else, just ask.
Summary: I can't believe it could be all mine.

Permanent download not available but I'm happy to upload a temporary link for you, just ask!

This is not the vid I expected to be making this November (or ever), but then I found out Mara's birthday was in three weeks and it's SO RARE for me to share a fandom with a friend on their birthday and be capable of making a thing, so I pretty much had to. Actually it took me four weeks but I think that's still pretty good time.

(This looks kind of crappy bc it's the last vid I made on my old computer that couldn't handle HD so I had to use tiny avis that do not do justice to the majesty of the subject.)

Title: A Thousand Suns
Artist: Tom McRae
Fandom: Supernatural
Size: 90 MB
Content notes/warning: Fast flashing lights and quick cuts; blood. No standard warnings apply. If you need to know about anything else, just ask.
Summary: How to stand up. (Castiel & Dean/Castiel, seasons 4-5)

I really should have waited for the DVD, but at least it's only one minute long so it won't be hard to remaster. Also, I made this using the 2012 movie, but it's actually a vid of the book characters. I realize this is a silly and meaningless distinction to make in a visual format but that is my prerogative as an Artist.

Title: White Cedar
Artist: The Mountain Goats
Fandom: Les Miserables (2012)

This was a last-minute Treat and I was in a big hurry, so this version has been improved somewhat from the unsigned one. So if you liked it you should watch it again, it's better now!

Festivids are revealed! I made "The Frug" (Once a Thief) and "My Aviator" (The Great Mouse Detective), both available here in signed and very slightly tidied-up versions, which is apparently now a tradition for me. (Well, I tidied up "The Frug," the other has no problems quite as glaring and I was just too tired to stare at it any longer.)

I feel like both were extremely obviously me for anyone familiar with my style, though of course I don't know why anyone would be. Or familiar with my vid from last year--cartoons and happy endings, basically fluffy even when there's conflict, cutting to the words or guitar rather than the drums, relatively slow cuts with more focus on internal motion, 99.5% effects-free. These are not actually all things I like about my style, but I'm just saying, I doubt this reveal comes as a great shock to anyone.

To follow: notes and stuff!

I...I think this song may have been too fast for me. I mean, I couldn't have chosen any other song, but...SO FAST. I'm not sure I managed to keep up. However, this vid does contain one of the sequences I'm most proud of in anything I've made so far, so I guess it worked out all right. Many thanks to [personal profile] actiaslunaris for giving me the chance to work on something so fun!

I thought I had this ready to upload as soon as I got home. I did not. But here it is now! I recommend downloading this even if you have the con DVDs, because the audio on them is kind of screwed up for some reason.

Originally premiered at Vividcon 2010. Ten thousand thanks to [personal profile] kuwdora, who made this much better than it was, and who would have made it better still had I had the patience to do everything she told me. *g* And thank you so much to everyone at Premieres who laughed at this--you made my night, and kind of my whole life :D

1. Thank you a million times to the many people who have helped me on this, and especially to [ profile] kuwdora without whom it would be a pale, kind of sucky shadow of itself.
2. If you're watching with VLC Player, please set the aspect ratio to 16:9. I have no idea why this continues to be an issue for me--I've tried exporting with different aspect ratios, testing sections of it before doing the whole thing, nothing. But if you set the aspect ratio yourself it'll display fine, so...please do :D? :D?

lyrics and babble )
some_stars: (iron man is robot porn)
ABOUT THE ASPECT RATIO: apparently when VLC opens this file, it assumes it's 4:3 aspect ratio when in fact it's 2:1. neither windows mediaplayer, mediaplayer classic, nor gomplayer do this. so....i'm deeply confused and unhappy, but if you're watching it in VLC, go to the Video menu and change the aspect ratio to "221:100" and it should be about right. this is either my fault for converting to square pixels too soon, or premiere's fault for making me. not sure. :/

Notes: Oh, dear god. There are extensive and almost certainly boring notes following the links, which you are under no obligation whatsoever to read. The important part is that [ profile] shati not only made this 1000% better than it would have been(and it would be a thousand times better still if I had the patience/ability to carry out all her suggestions), she pretty much enabled its existence at all by listening patiently to my Verbose and Artistic Angst.

further blather! )

As always, I welcome/beg for criticism. I'm still feeling my way around vidding generally, and I tried a lot of new things in this vid both narratively and technically, so if you have any thoughts of any kind I would be grateful to hear them. :)
