Dear 2014 Festividder  
Dear Festividder,

My letters are usually super short, but all this year I kept a note on my phone and typed a list of every time I thought "oh, I wish this was a vid."

Request #1


One of my favorite television shows of all time. So much is under the surface and the characters are intensely compelling. I would adore vid about any aspect or character or storyline, even ones I disliked, so go wild. I would love to have a vid for Martha Bullock or Jane though. Other character studies of women would be most welcome as well, like Miss Isringhausen or Jewel or anyone else. Who can resist the talents of Anna Gunn and Robin Weigert?

I have a "Women of Deadwood" vid playlist that I pull up once in a while and watch. I always long for a Martha and a Jane vid to round out the ensemble.

1. Trixie in charmax's Bloody Mother
2. Joanie in kiki_miserychic's Special Death
3. Alma sdwolfpup's Woman King

Request #2

Bob's Burgers

I absolutely love and adore so much about Bob's Burgers. I'd love a vid for any character or an ensemble. Literally anything and I'd die happy. An interesting idea I had would be using one of the songs from the recent musical episode and doing a Die Hard and Working Girl crossover vid to the show's song, "Work Hard or Die Trying Girl." It only makes sense if you watched the show. And I'm not even sure that the full song would be available for vidding, but it'd be so fun. Again, I'd love any Bob's Burgers vid because it is the show of my heart. I'm not going to try and sell people on the show because you can Google all the articles that explain the awesomeness.

Request #3

Kumail Nanjiani's The X-Files Files

I rejoiced like no other when festivids allowed audio fandoms in this year because I am living for this podcast. Kumail hosts the weekly podcast that dicusses episodes of The X-Files in a rewatching framework. Kumail and a guest reminiscence about one or two episodes per podcast episode and it's on late season two of the series. The genuine enthusiasm is so incredible and refreshing. I listen to the podcast episodes and rewatch the tv episode more than once. It's funny and sincere and nostalgic and lovely. There's a lot of fannish discussion and vidding is even mentioned.

For vidding purposes a part of the podcast could be visually represented, like video to match up with the audio and illustrate it. The cross section of people who vid and people who listen to the podcast are slim. And of those people there are even fewer who would consider vidding it, but it is close to my heart and I LOVE it, which is exactly what festivids is for.

Request #4

The Purge (technically The Purge movie series)
I'm here for Lena Headey's Mary character. Her morality and fierce protective aggression. The sequel could have been great based on the concept, but was tragically executed in such a poor fashion that I don't want it included in a vid. It could have been great had another writer taken a pass at the script. The only character the two movies have in common is maybe 3 minutes at the end of the sequel anyway. I think a very skilled vidder could take the sequel and make both movies into something amazing, but I think that's asking for a lot of a festividder.

Request #5


I've always wanted a Damages vid using Electric Guest's Head That I Hold. I see it focusing on Patty and Ellen, of course, over the seasons.

Request #6

You're the Worst

It's a first season show about people who are basically garbage and terrible to each other while being funny. I love it because nearly everyone is shit.

Request #7

The Fades

I'd be happy with anything. IT'S SO PRETTY.

Request #8

Imagine You & Me (safety)

Most vids for this movie are focused on Rachel, which makes sense because the movie is mainly about her questioning her sexuality. I'd love a vid that focuses on Luce. For many reasons but mainly because I think there are more stories to tell than people questioning their sexuality and coming out. There's also Luce's character. Also, Lena Headey's face.

As far as music, I can listen to anything for a vid. I do mean anything. Give me your progressive hip-hop, give me symphony covers, give me spoken word. I will buy what you are selling.

Thank you. You are too precious for this world.

Wow the fades looks awesome just based on those caps. I haven't heard of it!

It is awesome. And it goes by quickly.

It has a lot of people that are on big stuff. Or at least big to our corner of fandom stuff. Like Lily Loveless on Skins, Iain De Caestecker on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Sophie Wu from Fresh Meat, Tom Ellis from Miranda, Francis Magee from In the Flesh and Game of Thrones, and Joe Dempsie from Games of Thrones too and Skins too.

OMG and Daniel Kaluuya is fabulous is so many smaller roles. I wish he was in larger roles, like leads. He was fantastic in an episode of Black Mirror.

Or course, Natalie Dormer, who is in everything and is amazing.

OMG I hope you get a Bob's Burgers vid.
