I didn't complete it last year -- let's see if I do any better this year!

Having just completed the 30 day vidding meme and the year-end vidding meme, I'm going to focus on stuff that I haven't recently talked to death.

Before I started vidding or had a Dreamwidth account, my gateway fandom was Buffy, and my gateway fan site/forum was Critically Touched.  As part of that tiny little community, I reviewed a couple of Angel episodes, including the season 4 episode "Players", focussing on one of my favorite characters from that show: Gunn.  Here's my review.

One time I made a bunch of icons with one Buffy image.  The idea was that I was criticizing the notion that Buffy is self-righteous or sanctimoneous or whatever, and contrasting that notion with what she lives with and faces every day.  But also I was trying to be funny?  Yeah, it was a bit much for a newbie iconner, but I still like the idea.  I keep one of these icons in my list even though I've never, ever used it.  Because it only makes sense to me.

My first year vidding, I made a vid about The Black Stallion.  And I still really like it!  I'm pleased with the musicality of it, and I like how it captures the spirit of how I felt about the film as a kid, and why the film holds up as an adult.  (Nostalgia + pretty cinematography.)

My god vidding a movie sure is easier than a TV show.  Or at least it's less work finding clips.  My first vid where I chose the topic before the music -- and finding the right song took longer than clipping did.

I wish I'd finished this soon enough to submit it to Vividcon's "Let My Lyrics Go" show, but alas.  Maybe next year I'll have something in VVC.  :)
