frayadjacent: Buffy looking to the side in black and white (BtVS: Buffy B&W)
[personal profile] condnsdmlk and I curated a vidshow about Work at VidUKon this year, and I was really pleased with how it turned out, so I'm posting it here, including the descriptions which we spent a silly amount of time on. Unless otherwise indicated, they're all (sometimes paraphrased) Marx quotes.

Description: An exploration of all work related things -- waged or otherwise. Office work, forced labour, team work, striking, playing hooky...we have it covered.

1. Under Pressure (The Martian) by [personal profile] violace. From each according to ability.

2. Go Places (Parks and Recreation) by [ profile] nicole_anell. When sacrifices benefit all, joy is not limited or selfish -- our happiness will belong to millions.

3. Past in Present (Chak De! India) by [ profile] sol_se. Society is not made up of individuals. It is the sum of interrelations -- the relations within which individuals stand.

4. Tightrope (Mary Poppins) by [personal profile] chaila. "Capitalist production relies on the creation of a particular type of worker, and therefore a particular type of family." - Sylvia Federici

5. The Fucking Manual (The Thick of It) by Trutgras. The bureaucracy is a circle from which no one can escape.

6. Working for a Living (Hustle, Leverage) by [personal profile] thingswithwings. A greater amount of assets increases the power objects have on man; every new product escalates the potential for mutual swindling and plundering.

7. Hello (Kitchen Confidential) by [personal profile] trelkez. Great world-historic facts and individuals appear twice: the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.

8. Piece of Me (Britney Spears RPF) by [ profile] obsessive24. At first sight a commodity might appear obvious and trivial, but look closer and you'll see that it is full of subtleties and spiritual niceties.

9. Tired (Firefly) by [ profile] thedothatgirl. It is only as a worker that she can maintain herself as a physical subject. It is only as a physical subject that she is a worker.

10. Just Dance (Newsies) by [personal profile] ua_the_terrible. The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it.

11. Never Go to Work (Stargate Atlantis) by [personal profile] grammarwoman. The worker feels himself at home only during his leisure time.

12. The Organization and the Assets (multi) by [personal profile] echan. Work is an alienation of life.

13. Freedom (Underground)  by [personal profile] frayadjacent. The most momentous thing happening in the world today is the movement among the slaves.

14. Wretches and Kings (Battlestar Galactica) by [personal profile] jarrow. The history of all previous societies is the history of class struggle.

15. Power in Union (Pride) by [personal profile] condnsdmlk. To each according to need.

Many thanks to everyone who recommended vids for this show!

At this year's vidukon -- which, by the way, was lovely! -- I finally got a solid idea for a vidshow: sidekicks. I can't believe it took me this long to come up with the idea, because sidekicks are my jam. It's even reflected in my name! So, this is me, declaring that at next year's vidukon I'm gonna do a sidekicks vidshow.

And I confessed my multifandom sidekicks vid idea before multiple witnesses, oops. Now I must make it for my vidshow.

(By the way, this is completely at odds with my new self-declared vidding mode, which is that I'll vid when I feel like it, deadlines be damned.)

Title: Freedom
Fandom: Underground (2016 television series)
Song: Freedom by Beyoncé feat. Kendrick Lamar (Lemonade film version)
Summary: Won't let my freedom rot in hell
Premiered at VidUKon 2016

Content Notes: This attempts to be a recruiter vid but spoilers are inevitable. Fast cuts and flashing lights, speed changes. US network television-type violence. Some violence against African-American slaves is shown but that is not the primary topic. Animal harm. Feel free to ask specific questions about content.

Download: 101 MB mp4 with subtitles

Subtitles are included in the download .zip files. You can delete the .srt file if you don't want subtitles.

Update-- the Critical Commons embed doesn't seem to be working, so here's a direct link to the streaming vid.

I'm putting together a panel for vidukon on vid feedback.  I haven't sorted out what the panel will look like, and I know that at Vividcon there have been multiple panels related to feedback and beta processes.  If anyone knows of posts that have talked about what was covered in those panels, how the panelists structured it, etc, I'd love to see them!  Or if anyone put on or attended one of those panels and wants to tell me about it, that would also be awesome!  Also, general posts about feedback/beta processes would be super useful.

(I have looked at the Fanlore pages for VVCs past, and they include links to some people's post-con write-ups, which have been a helpful start for sure.)

Right now I definitely want to include some space to discuss whether/how we can constructively criticise vids for their content and not just their form, but I don't really see myself filling a full time slot with just that.  In addition to that, I was thinking some other things that might be good to do:

 - a group concrit or beta process as part of the panel (I'd ask for volunteers to submit a vid for this, or do one of my own). 

 - people share experiences with feedback/beta that was helpful and talk about why

 - people talk about how they approach being a beta or other ways of giving feedback

Any other ideas?  I'm in brainstorm mode so I'd love to hear anything that might be relevant.  Even thoughts on feedback, praise, and constructive criticism of things other than vids would be super cool.
