I've been gone a while but now I'm back and being as random as ever. Don't mind me.

I have to 2 Vidding related items that need to be passed on. Firstly, festivids! This looks like so much fun so I'm going to be throwing myself at it. The principle is similar to yuletide but it's for vids which is doubly awesome. I cannot wait to see all the potential rare fandom vids to come out of it. Very exciting.

These are my own nominations. I couldn't vid some of these myself but I'd love to see them get done by others more able.

Bionic Woman - 2007 (TV)
Blackadder (series) (TV)
Fringe (TV)
Survivors - 2008 (BBC, TV)
United States Of Tara (TV)
Birds Of Prey (TV)
Jericho (TV)
Animaniacs, Pinky & The Brain (TV)
Phoenix Nights (TV)
Prime Suspect (TV)
Blackpool (TV)
Tipping The Velvet (mini series)
Mary Poppins (film)
West Side Story (film)
Thelma & Louise (film)
Dead Like Me (TV)
Americas Next Top Model (TV)
So You Think You Can Dance (TV)
Collateral (film)
The Goonies (film)

Secondly, I was the focus of October's vidder profile edited by [personal profile] bradcpu for [community profile] vid_commentary.

The profile includes excerpts from the following vids (in order of appearance):

"Seven Nation Army" (Multi), VVC 2009

"Club Foot" (Life On Mars) May 2006
"Protege Moi" (Supernatural) October 2006
"Candleburn" (Firefly) September 2006
"Birth of a Geisha" (Memoirs of a Geisha) April 2007
"Tanglewood Tree" (Fingersmith) VVC 2008
"Boom Boom Ba" (Xena) October 2004
"Mambo Italiano" (Alias) July 2006

ebonypsyche has posted a commentary for my vid "Weak" (Faith/Buffy AU. Made in 2004) over at [community profile] vid_commentary.

For an older vid of mine to get such attention as been a surprising morale booster.

There is an interesting new vidding community vid_the_grid!

vid_the_grid is based on the numerous fic prompt table communities that you can find all over LJ. But why should authors have all the fun? In this community, the idea is to extend the fun to vidders too.


I've decided to join up seeing as there is no time limit. It should be fun.

1.80's music 2.humour/crack 3.advertisement 4.fun/happiness
5.angst/sadness 6.no lyrics 7.secondary characters 8.Romance/love
9.black & white 10.Something different 11.colours 12.vidder's choice

I've just posted a vid commentary for [personal profile] trelkez's wonderful Doctor Who vid "Everything's Not Lost."

Half a Moon is a fourteen day challenge celebrating female characters in fandom, which will run from February 1 through Valentine's Day. Fanfiction, vids, recs, art, picspam, icons, meta, fanmixes, and outside links to content fitting the theme of this community are all welcome--the only rule is that the primary focus must be on a female character or characters.

I haven't pimped this yet so I am now pimping it mightily! VidUKon is a brand new Vidding con being held in the UK and set up by the fantastic [livejournal.com profile] halcyon_shift. It will run from the 24th Oct to the 26th Oct in Milton Keynes and will have everything from panels, vidshows tea and cakes. It should be a great weekend to meet all your fannish friends to talk/watch vids. I won't be going myself this year, unfortunately, but I am seriously hoping there will be enough numbers to make it viable for next as I really want to go. So this is where I pimp - you all need to go sign up! It'll be fun! Come take a holiday in Britain!


Click the banner for all details.

[livejournal.com profile] vidukon LJ group.

As I'm not going this year I thought I'd make myself useful in another way so I offered to VJ the "Made In The UK" Vid show.
"Doctor Who, Torchwood, Queer as Folk etc.
UK shows rock !
"

I have a fair idea of some of the vids I'd like to include but I am also looking for suggestions in case I've missed that perfect vid for this show. If you have any suggestions please comment away. I'm particularly interested in any vids for lesser known shows. I'd like a good mix. :)
charmax: (Cheer)


Just stopping by to pimp. ^

Hopefully I'll have a vid ready for the International Day Of Femslash at the end of the week. :)
charmax: (Bright Idea)
1. Come join [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon! It'll be fun. Half a Moon is a fourteen day challenge celebrating female characters in fandom, which will run from February 1 through Valentine's Day.

2. Do you remember that Great Vidding Truth Meme from 2006? Well it's happening again here. Come comment on a vidder or put yourself forward.

[livejournal.com profile] cupidsbow is setting up a flashfic challenge. It's the first I've ever seen where vidders can get involved and offer up their vids for inspiration.
Take a look. :)

Moving Words and Pictures Flashfic Challenge

I'm not a writer myself but if anyone would like to use my vids for this then I'd be thrilled!
charmax: (Sweet Charity - Vidder Ho)
Bidding has begun at Sweet Charity! Go get your Ho of choice!


Sweet Charity
charmax: (Sweet Charity - pimp shoes)
There are now 115 amazing people signed up for Sweet Charity! Awesome. Keep going. :D

I have decided to offer something arty as well as the 1 vid. Please check the details below and if it takes your fancy bidding begins 09 Sep 07.

Vid

Buyer input:
Name your fandom and give me a song and leave me to it or provide me with a more fleshed out concept, narrative, tone etc.

Song choice:
I would prefer a couple of song options but it's not essential. I will have a go at any song but it will probably be best to give me alternatives from different genres.

I am happy to vid any pairing including slash/femslash, character studies, ensemble pieces, multifandom. I will vid humour, angst and anything in between but I do lean more towards the lighter end.

Please note that if you choose Buffy or Angel I am only prepared to cover female characters for this round.

To see examples of my previous works please visit

Art

I can offer a "Charmax" designed poster/mug that can be sent to you via snail mail. I won't be able to use copyright material but it can still be fannish e.g a slogan/Logo/quote or I can make you something pretty of your choice with stock images e.g "I want a abstract fairy poster!"

For an example:

You know I said I was really busy with the club vivid vids? Well I am, but I have been suckered back into Reverie after months. The place has me completely hooked again and it's even got me feeling creative enough to open Photoshop! Bloody hell! Although I am back on there, and it's great, I will not be neglecting LJ and you lot.  I don't post that often here on *my* journal but I still consider it my main place.

Sweet Charity got off to a great cracking start yesterday. £2400.38/$4634.66/€3509.65 has been pledged already! Everyone is so fantastically generous it's hard to believe. The Power of Fandom strikes again. If my bidders are reading this > Thank you thank you! Don't stop bidding now though. ;) Below is a reminder of my offerings.

Vid: -These are the shows I can vid for you: Buffy, Angel, Xena, Dead like me, 4400, Hex, Deadwood, Carnivale, BSG, Supernatural, Veronica Mars, Firefly, Bad Girls (Seasons 1-3), Dark Angel, Alias, Torchwood/Dr Who (Not old school), Life on Mars, House, Heroes, Rome, X-Files Plus any movie that can be rented (except gore fests).

Song choice: Not rap or heavy metal please. A choice of 2, possibly 3 songs would be very helpful.

Genre: All.

Buyer input: Pick a song and a show and either leave it at that or give me a theme, tone and character. Obviously draft versions can be discussed via email.

Some of my most recent vids can be streamed at the link below.

Older vids can be downloaded from my site

[livejournal.com profile] astartexx I blame you. This vid/let is eating my brain. Experimentation? MwahahaHa! You will be mine. Damn you.
don't ask me what who/it's about. That will just ruin the surprise won't it?! Heh.


Oh and whilst I am mentioning vidding, Sweet Charity, run by the generous [livejournal.com profile] lithium_doll starts again soon. Beginning of March I think? I hope to see many of you lot sign up or get involved in someway - it's for a fantastic cause! Can I just remind us all how much we raised last round > £879.90 / $1639.48 that amount is beyond amazing. I hope it has a similar success this time round!

vividcon sign-ups also start soon "registration for attending membership opens Sunday, February 18 at 1PM EST" I will not be going myself for various reasons (living in the UK and being socialphobic being the biggest two) but I am keen to see some of you awesome vidders on my flist sign up. I will probably be a supporting member and hopefully have something for clubvivid.

And the pimping goes on because I have very little else to say

[livejournal.com profile] get_creative the art challenge community needs many more people to come play. If you are arty inclined like me, then join up. It could be fun!
