2. Is there a genre or style you've yet to try your hand at, but really want to?
3. Is there a genre or style you wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole?
4. How many vid ideas are you nurturing right now? Care to share one of them?
5. Share one of your strengths.
6. Share one of your weaknesses.

8. Which vid was the hardest to make?

13. What's the worst vidding advice you've ever come across?
14. If you only could vid one show/movie for the rest of your life, which show/movie would it be?
15. Do you work mostly from start to finish, or do you vid sections out of order?
16. Do you use any tools, like clip notes or storyboards?
17. Stephen King once said that his muse is a man who lives in the basement. Do you have a muse?
18. Describe your perfect vidding conditions.

20. Choose a section from one of your earlier vids and talk about whether and how you'd do it differently now. (Person sending the ask is free to make suggestions).
21. If you were to revise one of your older vids from start to finish, which would it be and why?

7. Point to a section from one of your favorite vids you've made and explain why you're proud of it.

In my recent, Runs in the Family Hannibal vid of Abigail Hobbs, the something to do with her grandmother’s / grandfather’s grandmother civil war soldiers who
badly infected her / my friend has maladies, rickets, and allergies that she dates back to the 17th century
part at :50-1:03 is what I'm most proud of. My brain really grasped onto all the parallels of Hannibal looking down at Abigail's mom and Alana and Abigail looking down at the blood her mom left on the cement and then going into Alana being infected. Then with Marissa's body and Abigail's dad's other staged bodies and Abigail's face and wave to her dad into him training her and then finally into the parallel of Bev and Alana seeing Abigail...

Honestly I'm still proud of that entire vid. It's the most my brain to actual timeline vid I've ever made. My brain categorized all of that in such a way that I made it a vid.

I answered this above, but I'll answer it as many times as people ask it because I am feeling vain.

In When I am Laid in Earth, a Utopia vid, I'm super proud of :13-:25 because I didn't reframe anything and found all the points for transitioning in the source. The first is a graphic novel page from the Utopia manuscript that a character on the show created that transitions with that white circle perfectly over Jessica's entrance into the door, then the push in on the door opening to Jessica again, this time transitioning into the crumpled post it note of "utopia manuscript" perfectly. In the source Jessica's dad was thought to have put a secret into his manuscript for all of season one until the last scene where Jessica realizes that her father put the secret in her blood, hence all my transitions. Jessica is the manuscript.

9. Which vid was the easiest to make?

No contest, I Threw it on the Ground. I made it for the LOLZ and because I wanted to play and make Brad laugh.

8. Which vid was the hardest to make?

Hmmm, I am forever messing up the technical parts of vidding. I'm exporting incorrectly and encoding wrong. But overall World Spins Madly On for festivids was the hardest vid for me. I had offered Night Watch and Day Watch for festivids, but I quickly realized I wouldn't be able to finish the vid I was working on, so I put it aside and started watching New Amsterdam to make a vid. Then I scrambled for a song. Then I had to actually vid it. The product ended up with poor pacing because I needed the song to fit the concept of being chronological, which meant the beginning was boring as FRELLING FRAK. Looking back I do enjoy parts of it, but I feel like it was a failure. I liked parts of the show, but not a majority of it. It had promise, but was really tied up and didn't iron out what it wanted to do and where it wanted to go. LOL, THE SAME AS I DID WITH MY VID. Nice epiphany I had there.

1. Describe your comfort zone—a typical you-vid.

WELLLLLLLL, current era me would have a super boring beginning so most people turn it off. Then lots of nudity and gore. Lesbians are a plus. The music is probably a female vocialist sounding all sad and shit. The cutting is gonna be SUPES fast because I think everyone watches vids too slowly for me. There's totes some jerky internal movement too with prolonged clips on people's beautiful faces. The movement is halting and goes back and forth in opposite directions in the clips.

There has to be too many levels of meaning for people to understand. Because that's how I roll. Seven layers deep like an Inception sequel with prequel flashbacks and alternate universes.

This is all stuff I enjoy, except for the super boring beginning. I'm trying to remember to make the beginning blast off even if I don't want it to if it's for festivids because people will skip it if the beginning doesn't KICK OFF.

I just wanna say that I love all your answers and respect you as an artist all the more. NOT EVEN PUTTING A GIF.
kiki_miserychickiki_miserychic on September 10th, 2014 09:04 pm (UTC)
AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWwwwww, thank you. I answered them as the day they came in for once instead of mulling them over forever. I should answer everything immediately and never think again. It ends better that way. The only thing I mulled over was the fave 3 vidders. I had about 10 in mind, so like, be proud and shit.

I'm legit stalking people's meme answers.
cyborganize on September 14th, 2014 09:01 pm (UTC)
oooh, I think there are still a bunch that nobody asked yet.

I want to put 12, 14, 17, 20, 29, 32... but that's probably too many, so you can pick and choose.
