This is in principle my last question for the vidding meme, but I'm happy to take more questions and will probably do a few more on my own just because I like them.

[personal profile] colls asked: Do you work mostly from start to finish, or do you vid sections out of order?

Bit of both, but my orientation is very much to go from start to finish, and I've had to train myself out of that. Even though I use a non-linear editor! A number of people have talked about how when they get an idea for a vid, there are a few spots that are clear in their minds, and those are the parts they make first. And of course I also have some very vivid ideas for a few spots in the vid, but for some reason I often wait to put those down!

So, anyway, I do vid out of order, but I find that I get major mental blocks if the first ~15 seconds of the vid aren't solid. This made "Become You" a major headache cause I never could work out how to open the vid. Even after I submitted it to Wiscon I continued to fiddle with the opening.  But apart from that I do vid out of order, according to where I have ideas/what I'm excited to work on/what I've already clipped.

So, like right now my WIP has a ~75% full timeline. I imported the episodes directly into Premiere, but since I'm not super duper familiar with the source I'm scrubbing through the episodes chronologically. However when I started the vid there was one part I was pretty excited about that involved clips from the last episode, so I vidded that first. Ironically I am now planning to change that section! Anyway, I have a pretty solid structure planned for the vid so as I scrub through the episodes and find relevant clips, I drop them directly onto the timeline and fiddle from there. And I alternate between doing that and making changes to sections I've already worked on, according to whatever is most appealing at the time.

These are all questions from [personal profile] thirdblindmouse, via the vidding meme.

What's the best vidding advice you've ever come across? ([personal profile] goodbyebird also asked this)

To watch and study vids that I love, and figure out what makes them work for me. In my early days of vidding I did this often, and for a few vids I even watched the whole thing basically frame by frame and took down notes. That was how I realized, for example, that Bachelorette's intro goes through all the themes explored in the rest of the vid, basically giving an overview of the vid in the first 20 seconds. And that Nicky uses a fade to black between each section of the vid -- and nowhere else, I believe.

I don't do this as much anymore, except that I recently studied [personal profile] shati's vid "Boulevard of" while making "Become You", because I wanted to emulate both some of her cutting techniques, which I love, and the way she continued to revisit specific moments in the show throughout the vid as a way to drive home the themes.

I also remember reading the advice to read vid meta, which I would do anyway because it interests me. It helps with excitement and inspiration as well as learning tricks of the trade.

Do you use any tools, like clip notes or storyboards?

It depends on the vid. For example, my next vid in Xena Vid Series from Hell has a complete timeline of clip notes -- an extended marker describing what will go in each section. And I believe it does not yet have a single actual clip on it. Conversely, my current WIP, an Orphan Black vid, has no markers and a ~70% full timeline because the structure of the song is such that it's kind of obvious -- to me anyway -- what goes where, and because I've been able to import all the episodes directly into Premiere, which has changed my workflow quite a bit from what I usually do.

I used to always storyboard but I haven't done that in a while.

I also keep a vidding journal -- a trick I learned from [personal profile] kiki_miserychic -- where I scribble down ideas as they come to me. I carry it everywhere! It is an excellent tool and I highly recommend it. It occurs to me that I could also use a notes function in my smartphone for this, but personally I like having the written journal.

Do you take liberties with canon or are you very strict about your vids being canon compliant?

Hmmm. I'd say I keep my vids compliant with my head-canon, which generally would not directly contradict canon or even stray much from it. But part of being in fandom for the last few years is that I've gotten much more comfortable with the general taking liberties with canon, especially if femslash is involved. So I might do it someday?

Actually, I for a couple years I had "Fire Door" saved as a Veronica Mars AU-ish vidsong. The idea was for a season 1 AU of sorts where in the end Veronica rejects both Logan and Duncan, along with all the other 09-ers. But I didn't envision it taking liberties with canon so much as a criticism of canon. At any rate, it's now and forever a Tyra vidsong, and I'm quite happy with it that way.

ETA: it occurred to me that another way to interpret the question is whether I use clips in their canon context, which is maybe a more useful way to think about this for vidding -- as opposed to writing fic, which this meme was originally designed for. And for that, I am very much happy to use clips out of context, but they'd still be supporting my reading of canon, as opposed to going totally AU. In fact when I am clipping/vidding I sometimes get too visual and don't consider the context of the clip enough. If it's not a well-known clip that's fine, but for famous moments it's almost impossible to divorce the clip from its context. I'm better at this than I used to be but my first vid or two contained some very famous clips in moments where they didn't work at all.

I'm doing some subtitles for Wiscon, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of guidelines for subtitling vids; i.e., is it best to start a subtitle a moment (how long of a moment?) before they lyric starts, or right at the same time? What about ways to get the subtitles to flow best with the music, or the vid itself? Is it better to keep a subtitle up a few frames longer than necessary when there are brief pauses in the lyrics so that you don't have a stutter effect (a few frames with no titles between two different lyric lines), or is it better to match the timing of the titles exactly with the lyrics?

There is a very cool discussion about vidding -- process, tech, tips, you name it -- at [community profile] wiscon_vidparty's vidding workshop.  Check it out!  This is such a great idea and I hope it keeps happening. I would have *loved* to come across this when I started vidding or in my first year as a vidder.  I love coming across it now!

A lot of people are talking about their vidding process, most of which are similar to mine in the finding/discovering song --> re-watching and/or clipping --> song editing --> vid editing --> beta process, but I've discovered (and rediscovered) that it really helps me to combine the clipping and video editing.  Because clipping is so boring!  I.e., I set myself a goal for a number of episodes to clip, then once I finish I reward myself by laying some of those clips on the timeline!  It helps with motivation.  Plus, I usually get a lot of ideas when I clip and it helps to enact at least some of those ideas right away rather than writing them down or taking mental  notes that don't get acted upon for days to months. 

Also, according to [personal profile] heresluck, an initial rule of thumb for matching motion to a beat is to have the explosion, fist-hitting, etc happen three frames before the beat (then adjust as needed).  WHOA.  I usually line these things up on the same frame as the beat, and I wonder if this is part of why I often feel like my timing is a bit off-looking.  I am definitely going to try this out.  If it works I will be glad to have a solution/bitter I didn't realize this ages ago.

I haven't been around DW much, and my fannish mode has generally been a bit different lately. Cut for navel-gazing about recent non-participation on DW )

Anyway, I'm honestly considering just clearing out my inbox and starting fresh, with sincere apologies to people who left comments for me and never got a response.

In other vidding news:  I've been vidding like mad the past week or so.  I'm making a Xena vid that is really trying to explore moral and thematic questions -- and take positions and make arguments about said questions -- more so than probably any other vid I've made.  I've been really digging the process of making it.  I think because, unlike with my Buffy vids, Xena is still quite fresh and new for me and I feel really excited about what I want to say about it.  Also, with Buffy vids I have the constant feeling that every idea I've ever had has already been done, and probably better.  But to be honest I haven't found even half a dozen Xena vids that I like.  I'm sure there were tons back in the day but they seem to be gone or at least beyond my ability/motivation to find them.  So I actually feel like I can make a contribution? Anyway, one of the cool consequences of my vid farr is that I'm finally learning how to use After Effects a teensy bit because my excitement for the vid is overpowering my laziness.

*Yes I am watching Farscape and one of the zillions of DW posts I've written in my head the past 6 weeks is how utterly I've fallen for Aeryn Sun, and about my predictable lack of response to John and the Aeryn/John pairing.

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?

Nope!  That was an easy one.

Actually, I find it difficult to imagine how people collaborate on vids.  Anyone with experience want to share? I'm interested in both the technical and creative aspects.

30 Questions )

frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (vidding!)
Day 26: What is the oddest (or most fun) thing you've had to do for a vid?

Well, I can't think of anything odder than the act of vidding itself (that I've done for a vid, that is), so I'll go with "most fun". 

I'd say it was learning to do jump/stutter cuts, freeze frames, and time-toggling* for "Tightrope".  Actually, I learned to do jump cuts in an as-yet unfinished vid, but I had no idea how to do freeze frames or especially time-toggling.  I ended up watching [personal profile] giandujakiss's "Origin Stories" over and over, trying to figure out what they did and copy it.  That vid just has so much style, and I really wanted to emulate that, even though the mood and point of the two vids are totally different.  It was really cool to figure that out a bit.

I'm not sure I'd say the process itself was always super fun, but I was pretty darn delighted with the results.  One of my favorite clips from "Tightrope" uses all three.

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

At home, for starters.  I'm way too self-conscious to vid in public. 

If I could fashion a perfect vidding spot, it would have:
  • A super ergonomic desk, keyboard, and trackpad set-up.
  • Pretty good speakers.  (I actually don't think it'd be a good idea for me to vid with a great sound system, since most people are going to be watching the vid with just their computer speakers.  I might be too tempted to match the motion to elements of the music that are hard to pick out under those circumstances.)
  • A nice tray where I can put food and beverages without risking spilling them on my vidding system.
  • A good way to block excess sunlight. 
  • No intruders!  What I need most of all for vidding is to not be distracted.
*Eh, I have no idea if that's what it's called.  What I mean is that thing where you change the speed of the clip partway through so that the motion matches the music. 

30 Questions )
frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (vidding!)
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'm going to interpret "rip[ping] source" as "clipping", since all of my source is currently ripped to my external hard drive and I certainly didn't actively stay at the computer while it was ripping. 

Actually -- listening to music while I clip is a really good idea.  But not because it would help me vid.  Because it would help me avoid getting sucked into just watching the source.  I tend to only listen to music if I'm running or if Mr. Adjacent puts it on.  Which sometimes happens to be while I'm clipping, but maybe I should make a more conscientious effort to do put on music during that stage.

I don't listen to my vidsong while I'm clipping, though, because by the time I'm at that stage I'm in danger of getting sick of the song, or at least losing my inspiration.  Which is a nice transition to the second part of the question:

I listen to my vidsong incessantly when I first get an idea, especially if I'm excited about it.  But since it takes me months and months (usually) to get from an initial idea to an actual WIP, this is pretty dangerous.  By the time I started working on "Everwhere", I'd listened to the song so many times I was starting to totally tune it out when I heard it.  Luckily I still felt excited once I started laying down clips, but there have also been times when I've lost inspiration to even start a project simply because I listened myself sick of the song while I was waiting to carve out time to make the vid.

Once I start editing a vid, though, I pretty much only listen to the song while I'm working on it.  The exception is if I feel stuck, in which case I'll give myself a few days' break from the vid and then listen to the song while running. 

30 Questions )
frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (!coffee/creative/sleep)
Day 17: Titles: Do you try to use something different than the song? Why or why not?

I usually use the song title, unless it just doesn't work for me at all.  Most notably, the song (or should I say "piece"?  I don't get non-pop music.) used for "The Island" is called "Little Jonathan/The Wall".  Not a good vid title.  So I named it after a chapter in the book that the movie was adapted from (The Black Stallion).  Because my vid was basically documenting the events over the course of that chapter.

Day 18: Where do you get the most inspiration for your vids from?

The songs.  I know a lot of people will have a vid idea and look for a song, but sometimes I do the opposite: I have a song I really want to vid, and I look for an idea that'll work for it.  "A Thousand Miles" and "Everywhere" are both examples of this. 

The only time I've had an idea and looked for a song was for Festivids.  And even then I wasn't so much looking for a song for a specific idea as a song that generally seemed to fit the source and the recipient's wishes.  After I narrowed it down to a few songs I found I had pretty different ideas for all of them, and I chose partially based on which idea I liked best.

Most of the time, though, it's just listening to a song that gives me a vid bunny.  Usually for a source that I'm actively excited about.

Of course, watching something that's really beautifully or interestingly filmed will make me want to vid it.  But that doesn't lead to ideas, as my lack of Veronica Mars vids will attest. (Mars Investigations has got to be one of my favorite sets of all time, and I love love love the way they light it.)

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?

Ha!  I most certainly do not start vidding right away.  I'd say the turn-around between getting an idea and actually starting editing is at least 6 months on average.  Because I'm usually working on another vid, and/or other things are happening in my life, and then I have to acquire source and sometimes I have to re-watch and then there's the little question of motivation.  Again, Festivids is really the only exception.

All 30 days of questions )
frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (vid all the things?)
If you're a vidder and you clip, how do you name (and organize?) your clips?

I try to keep my names short and somewhat descriptive, but the descriptions are generic and don't tend to get at why I think the clip might work in my vid. E.g., "", but a lot of very different clips with very different uses might fit that description.  I'm wondering if there are alternatives.

(My clips used to have names like "".  Which is somewhat useful since I know that show really well, so that actually gives me a pretty good idea of what clip I'd be using.  But it wouldn't work for most sources, for me, and anyway I mostly end up only seeing the first part of the name in my Finder window.)

(BTW, this is just an example, I'm not vidding BtVS right now.)
frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (vidding!)
I swear, every vid I make I remember halfway through that I don't have to clip everything before I start editing.  And each time it is a goddamn revelation.  This time around, I'd been clipping for months, and I wasn't hating it, but I sure wasn't loving it.  Then I realized, hey, I have a lot of clips here.  I could throw those things on a timeline and have a lot more fun than I am right now.  Maybe even learn a thing or two about my new vidding software while I'm at it.

And it goes both ways -- editing gives me the motivation to keep clipping, but clipping gives me ideas for the vid.  It's a good back and forth.  I lose a little time by editing stuff that I end up replacing later once I discover better clips, but I bet I make that time up just by having more vid farr.  Plus it makes the experience overall more fun, which might have something to do with why I'm doing this in the first place?

So in the last two days I've filled up about 2/3 of the timeline for Sekrit Vid.  It's been a lot of fun!  I've been toying around with it a lot, moving between different parts of the vid, trying stuff out in one section till I get tired of it, tightening edits in another until I'm happy enough with it, for now anyway.  I'm still not sure what exactly I'm going to do with the other third, but hey, that's what clipping is for.  And that's my next task, as I've nearly exhausted the clips I have. 

And I'm doing it all in a spiffy new program -- Premiere Pro CS6, which came with my new laptop that came with my new job.  Mostly it's a lot like FCP 7, but prettier to look at.  I LOVE (really, really, a lot) that I can scrub through a preview of clips with the icon view -- it saves me soooo much time.  There's still a few kinks.  When I double click on a clip in the timeline to open it in the viewer (or whatever Premiere calls the monitor on the left), I keep expecting the viewer playhead to be on the same frame as the sequence playhead was.  I've found this is only the case maybe half the time?  I'm sure there's a reason for the discrepancy, but I don't know it yet.  It sounds like a small thing but it does slow down my fine-editing process -- I guess I need to adjust that part of how I work.  

I checked out Adobe's official "Classroom in a Book" for Premiere, and so I'm also learning some things I aught to know by now -- like what alpha channels and chroma keys are -- and I'm excited to use them.  Eventually.  Same with After Effects and all that.  Fancy titles and whatnot are exciting, but I bet I'll get the most use out of AE's de-noising effects, stuck as I am on shows that started in the 90s.

 Two weeks of no internet just became "we'll let you know within ten days when you'll get your internet".  Ten days on top of the two weeks, mind you.  And it's not "you'll get your internet within ten days."  It's "you'll find out when you get your internet within 10 days".

I'm trying to keep some perspective here: I have my smartphone, I have internet at work (though setting up a fully functional computer account is taking quite a while as well), and there's wifi at cafes and other places.  Of all the basic things that could have been significantly delayed in this move, home internet is probably the lowest impact.

But actually this is sort of aggravating me, and more importantly I'm wondering if it's a sign of shitty service to come, as I'm starting to get the sense that my ISP-to-be, Optus, is generally considered worse than at least one other provider.  Fellow residents of Australia -- should I try to get out of my contract?  

I've had enough with waiting and am going to try to get last week's Breaking Bad and Elementary episodes from iTunes at a cafe or something.  I'm not sure if that wifi will support large downloads though -- we'll see.  I was mostly worried about not getting to watch Breaking Bad, but now watching Person of Interest has got me missing Elementary.  It didn't help that I rewatched my vid a few days ago.  Instead of scratching my Elementary-itch, it had me longing to see those two again, bantering and solving problems and hanging out with Clyde and making me so so happy.

On the other hand, clipping for Sekrit Vid is going well!  I have a long way to go before my self-imposed deadline, though.  Not having internet does admittedly help.

Speaking of vidding, when I set my new desk up to start vidding again, I had to decide whether to focus on Sekrit Vid or my Hunger Games vid idea.  I wanted to finish the latter before Catching Fire is released, which means I need to get working on it now.  I am not a make-a-vid-in-a-day -- or a week -- sort of vidder, even for a film.  But I realized that I just didn't have the motivation.  I'm much more excited for my HG vid ideas that will require more of the films than I was for this one, even though it was a decent idea.  So I decided to abandon it, which is always at least as much of a relief as it is sad.  Especially for vids I've only thought about but not yet put any work into.

I've been thinking a lot about how to increase my vidding productivity, not only because I think about it a lot but also because [personal profile] heresluck and [personal profile] jetpack_monkey have been posting about it as well.  For me, of course, the number one thing is to have an arrangement where vidding does minimal damage to my wrists.  I have that now -- a much better setup than I had in Seattle, where I never wanted to splurge on a real desk since I was planning to move.  So now it's about staying focused and motivated.  The thing that distracts me the most from vidding is not so much television, but internet.  I can easily surf the web for ages when I was planning to vid.  So, like I said before, not having internet right now has a silver lining -- maybe it'll help me establish better habits in my new environment. 

Also, for work I sometimes use the productivity apps Anti-Social or Freedom.  The latter prevents access to social networking sites (an any other of your choosing) for a specified time, while Freedom blocks the whole internet.  And they both require you to reboot if you want to turn them off ahead of time.  I've resorted to using these for vidding a few times in the past and I might start making it a semi-regular part of my computer use.  Once we have internet, anyway....
frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (vidding!)
I listened to some of my current & future vidsongs on my run today, and had a couple of revelations:

1. My Angel WIP, which I'd nearly given up on because the song doesn't build and I was starting to feel like the vid doesn't go anywhere, is totally salvageable.  I just need to edit the song!  At 3.5 minutes it is too much song for what I'm trying to say, but at ~2 minutes it will work fine.  And now that I attended [personal profile] heresluck and [personal profile] nestra's audio editing panel, I'm more confident I can!  (I'd already edited the audio some to get it down to 3 1/2 minutes, but now I'm ready to get in there with a mf-ing chainsaw.  First chorus and second verse will likely not survive the Wrath of Fray.)

2. I worked out some point-of-view issues I'd been struggling with in visualizing a Xena vid that I hope to make but haven't started yet.  I knew I wanted multiple points of view, but I wasn't sure how to go about it.  But I listened to the song once and really focused on that aspect, and it became totally clear how to structure the POV, thanks in part to [ profile] greensilver and [ profile] sweetestdrain's "A Matter of Perspective" panel. ([personal profile] kass's panel notes.)  \o/

Now I just gotta make the damn things.  :/

(Also, I am posting this in part because of the discussion during joyo's panel on motivation.  I'm thinking maybe if I post about my works in progress I'll be more motivated to finish them?)

frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (Vid all the things!!!)
I've heard a number of vidders say that the bridge is the hardest part to vid, and some even take it out of the song.  But when I get a vid idea, the bridge is almost always the clearest part of my vision.  It's a moment of transition, it connects whatever I'm trying to say in the introduction to the end.  It often builds toward a climactic moment in the song.  It's great for capturing change -- in the characters, in their relationships, in the story.  And it's gloriously free of any random awkward lyric that doesn't work and you hope people ignore.  It's almost always the thing that gets me excited to make a vid, and it's almost always the part where I see the clip choice most clearly when I'm first starting.

I'm interested if other vidders find this to be the case.

(Also, three posts in one day!  I think this is a personal record.)
frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (vidding!)
I finally figured out that, just because MPEG Streamclip doesn't want to open mkvs, doesn't mean I can't force it to.  So I'm spared the step where I use Handbrake to convert MKV to MP4 -- which I then clip into MOV.    Hooray!

Of course, the conversion is super slow, but I think that's just because the files are large, not because of the file type?  Well, anything that opposes my tendency to overclip is probably a good thing anyway.

So yeah, I'm vidding!

frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (vidding I hearts it)
The day so far: alternating between vidding and paper revisions.  When I can't look at one any longer, I switch to the other.  This seems to be a great way to keep myself at stage 9!  Although staying focused on motion is harder than I expected.  I didn't realize how strong my inclination was to let narrative -- as determined by the lyrics as well as the music -- dominate my clip choice.  But I'm working on it.

Also: I think I've finally figured out how to use freeze-frames and varying clip speed, and I really feel like I'm getting the hang of jump cuts as well. :D  Vids getting flashier!!

OK, time to turn Freedom back on for the next few hours.

frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (Vividcon)
I'm all registered and paid up for Vividcon!  !!!   I'm thrilled!  I can't wait to meet so many of my favorite vidders, and attend panels, and dance at Club Vivid, and watch SOOOO many vids.  \o/

And yesterday I finished clipping for my Club Vivid vid!  I'd been clipping for, like, a month and a half.  I cannot wait to open up Final Cut and start laying down clips.  But first I need to work a bit more on organizing them.  My focus for this vid will be developing my skills at working with motion -- both internal and external -- so I want to at least do some level of categorizing clips along those lines.  I already have the basic thematic structure of the vid storyboarded as well as a few points in the vid where I know exactly what clip I want.  So most of the rest of the vid will be built around those parameters, with motion as a (probably the) main determinant of clip choice within that framework.

And finally, [community profile] tightpresent closed for offers/requests last night, which means my assignment is coming soon!  Time to start ripping my TSCC DVDs.  Hooray!

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.  :)
