Hi! Hello! Hey there!

Hopefully, by the time you get here, this has been replaced with a much more coherent and helpful letter. In the interim, I would just like to say that my request primarily fall into two categories:

1) Space is awesome, and we have the documentaries to prove it,

2) Awesome ladies being awesome in space (Jane Foster, River Song, Romana, Zhaan)

Anything that fits that criteria, I will be super happy with! I'm extremely flexible on music choice. I think you can make pretty much any song if you lean into it.

And now, finally, belated, a letter!

Words! More words! )

I am super behind on things! Pretend that this post is from before the big Yuletide reveal! And that there is a reason to use this many exclamation points!

I got two awesome stories this year!

Something in the Guns [The Walking Dead], which is a lovely character study of Andrea and Dale post 2x05;

Ms. Frizzle and the Van School for Gifted Boys [The Magic School Bus, Inception, Calvin and Hobbes, Torchwood/Doctor Who, BSG, Fringe], in which there is a multi-fandom field trip to the Large Hadron Collider. I don't think I need to tell you how happy that makes me!

I didn't bother doing the 'guess what I wrote!' thing this year, because one of the stories I wrote was in a fandom I have never mentioned (because that is how I roll, and the first sign of a fandom from me is often 'Hey, look, here's a vid in a thing that I enjoy!'), and other was pretty much jumping up and down and hollering about how I wrote it.

In other year-end thingies I am getting to after the year ends:

Vidding Meme!

February: L.E.S. Artistes [Terminator Movies, Sarah Connor, Festivids pinch hit]
August: Land's End [Doctor Who, River Song]
Gotta Boyfriend? [Scott Pilgrim vs the World]
We Rule the World [My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic]

Babbling and bobbling. )

There was another meme going around a while back where you could ask writers or vidders about any of their choices! I don't remember exactly how it went, but something about if you had choices at song/clip/word choice or characterization or intent, you could ask! In the off chance, you are interested, ask away! If you ask about anything I wrote in high school, however, my answer will likely be along the lines of "Well, at that point, I also thought it was a good idea to name myself after a snow cone/popsicle/etc."

Here is a year-end wrap-up, coming to you belatedly from the new year! I made about twice as many vids this year as I usually do, eight as opposed to three to four.

Other milestones reached when I wasn't paying attention: I have apparently been on LJ for nine years. That is almost a decade. In this time, I have apparently made just over 1000 posts, which is actually more than I expected. I suppose I used to be spammier.

Vidding Meme 2010 )
Other things I did this year:
Moderated a motion panel at VVC, and promised I would post the notes. I still have the notes, but I doubt anyone is interested.

I did an interview with [ profile] vid_commentary, which can be found here.

Three fics (two of which I am actually extremely proud of):
The Shape of a Sooner State - Fringe
A Case of Curious Tuesdays - Pushing Daisies
(waves) break upon the shore - Inception

VVC sure is creeping up, isn't it? I'm moderating a panel on motion this year (eep!), and am attempting to get things all put together. This is the description that's in the program:

An aesthetics panel on motion and movement, including approaches and techniques. At what point can we differentiate motion and movement used stylistically from that which is incorporated into the fabric of the narrative? We'll look at using smaller, unobtrusive movement to create continuity and unify a vid versus the use of larger 'impact' moment at musical or narrative crescendos, flowing movement versus the deliberately jarring, and creating internal rhythms as a compliment or counterpoint to music and storytelling.

Which I am starting to think might have been a bit optimistic for a 45 minute session. *G* So, guys, let's talk about motion! I'm synaesthetic with regards to music -- my senses are so awesome they couldn't be contained into neat little sense-boxes, so music itself has texture and movement to me -- which means I process vids a bit differently that some. I've got lots of things that are gradually drawing together, but it is not complete, and it makes me think about how much I love swirly-flowy motion vids.

So: What vids do you love with respect to motion and movement? Moments that took your breath away? Are there techniques or areas you think are of special interest?

Have you ever wanted to ask me a question about vidding? How about [ profile] wistful_fever, [ profile] fan_eunice, [ profile] heresluck, or [ profile] sdwolfpup? We've all agreed to be part of [ profile] vid_commentary's interview series, so you can head on over to this post for more details.

I'm having trouble with exporting my Premieres vid. (My awesomeness, let me know you it!) I'm running Final Cut Pro, and I have a system that usually works pretty well, using Compressor, but it is flummoxed by my aspect ratio!

My Premieres vid is in ultra wide screen -- 2.5:1, rather than 16:9, and I cannot figure out any export technique that doesn't make it horridly squishy and distorted and unwatchable. I did my .avi export by trimming the bars from my clipping program and manually resizing it to source dimensions, but I cannot do this with the high quality export!

I've tried close to twenty combinations of import/export/encodes, and I am completely at a loss. Any guidance at all would be greatly appreciated.
