I'm headed to vivid con next week! I'll actually be hitting up Chicago Tuesday for 2 reasons: 1) I have some friends who live there that I only ever see one convention a year, and 2) GISHWHES.

I'm trying not to think about all the things I have to do before I'm ready to go. Like finish packing, find a bag that is the right size to be a personal item carry-on on Virgin Airlines that will fit my laptop and accoutrements in it, make sure the clothes I want to wear get washed on time, make sure I have enough moneys in my accounts to cover travel expenses, get to know my GISHWHES team, ET CETERA.

Comment if you're going to VVC WHAT WHAT!

And now for something completely different )

Um, well, I had planned this super-awesome vid for Premiers but I couldn't amass enough footage for the song (it's a 4 minute song; I used 2 movies worth) in time to submit it, so I did a 2-day cobbled-together Lost Girl intro vid that isn't as awesome as...well, ANY vid I've ever done.

So half of my was like, "Just don't submit anything. If you don't have anything good to show, don't show anything at all." but then the rest of me was like, "Look, vidding is a learning experience. What if people don't like it? Well, they'll let you know at the concrit about how it could have been better. If people like it, you'll be happy. It's a win-win."

So I just bit the bullet and submitted it.

So if you see my vid during premiers, and you absolutely think it sucks, PLEASE leave constructive criticism to THIS POST, this post right here. If you liked it, YAY! I tried something REALLY NEW that I've seen other people do, about a show I think everyone should watch.

After it shows, I will update this post with a streaming link and a dl link.

Signed up to make a Club Vivid Vid to "All the Right Moves" by One Republic, and it looks like I'm not going to finish in time. If i do finish it in time for the premiers show, i'll submit it for that.

Sigh. I really hate missing deadlines, but my life has been too busy lately to make them.

Now I just have to step it up for Premiers (there's, like, 2 I want to make, and now there's 3!)

So I was extremely hassled when I first made this vid- through poor planning, I got the 13th episode of Merlin Season 1 on the day the vid was due. So I threw the thing together and sent it in.

Unfortunately, I made 2 errors: 1) I read the wrong guidelines and didn't put my name and vid title in the vid (I think I read the guidelines for the challenge vids) and 2) I didn't doublecheck and triplecheck my vid before sending it so it was filled with technical blips (such as: frame flickers, mismatched aspect ratio, and awkward pacing). So it didn't go over so well at Vividcon.

So with the aspect-ratio fixing help from [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings at the con, and a lot of time when I got back home, I have remastered my vid (I was told by someone to call it Remastering) into a streamlined version of how I wish it had shown at VVC.

I give you:

Title: Cassandra
Song, artist: "Dream Awake" The Frames
Warnings: Spoilers through season 1 of merlin
Summary: You will dream the future, and no one will listen. You will be forced to watch as they take up the sword, and it will break your heart when they fall by it.

Lyrics: if you're interested
