Vividcon 2006 Premieres Show Vids

So for this year, I had two videos that I edited in the Premieres show. The first I did in a mad rush the weekend before the deadline (taking a break from my auction vid) and the second I did waaaaaaaay back at the end of last year.

Vid: There is Too Much Light In This Bar
Footage: Life on Mars
Song: There is Too Much Light In This Bar by Wammo

download here - AbsoluteDestiny-TooMuchLightInThisBar.avi (42mb divx)

I'd rather not actually talk about what this vid is about but suffice to say it's a non-spoilery mix of serious and comic with themes of disorientation and sex.

Vid: Alice in Wonderland
Footage: Labyrinth
Song: Alice in Wonderland by John Moschitta (part of 10 classics in 10 minutes)

download here - AbsoluteDestiny-AliceInWonderland.avi (15mb divx)

This vid was done as a challenge. I asked tzikeh to give me a song to vid because I just wanted to vid any old thing for practice. She gave me this one. A few hours later I completed this vid. We then figured that we really liked these little one minute shorts and decided that doing a few more would be good and that they could help lighten the mood at the premieres show. Hence, Grapes of Wrath and Robin Hood.</lj>

I adored Too Much Light. Showed it (along with your Jungle Bunny vid) as soon as I got home and xlorp said: perfect match of song/tone/editing/show for the first and subversive/sick/provocative for the second (in other words - we both liked them).

Finally got round to replying! I'm glad you and xlorp enjoyed it :D

"with themes of disorientation and sex"

I may be stealing this phrase and incorporating it into as many situations as possible. And, indeed, for the vid. Well done! And I've stopped looking for you-know-what now, so that's a testament to the vid right there. Not that you-know-what wasn't fun. And a testament of its own kind, too.

Wow. I lost a sentence in there. I think it was, more or less, "Truly a prepositional phrase for the ages," and it should have been the second sentence.

I dearly loved Too Much Light at the Bar and am glad to see that you made it home safely without being blown up.

Thanks! It was great seeing you again!

Too Much Light and Alice in Wonderland
Ian - I adore "Too Much Light", as I think you could tell from the many, many, many times I told you this when I got to see it before VividCon, but I am going to tell you again.


I could not possibly have imagined that a song (?) like this one existed out there - someone at the con mentioned in review that perhaps you were sneaky and actually wrote it yourself in order to have something perfect to vid for LoM; I would have no trouble believing that. Your choice to have Gene come throught the doors, and then *do it over* when the vocalist changes his mind on the word he wants to use is pure genius. This one is right at the top of my "high rotation" vid list right now, and I don't see it getting bumped anytime soon.

As for your lovely Alice in Wonderland, I was so happy that you took it and ran with it, and that it resulted in more vidders working to create two more of the one-minute vids. Maybe next year we can figure out three more fandoms. The new season's premieres are just around the corner...

(p.s. many many thanks again for this wonderful icon which I stole appropriated am allowed to share with Lum.)

Re: Too Much Light and Alice in Wonderland
I definitely think we can do some more fandoms. I really enjoyed vidding both of these :D

Alice in Wonderland was fookin' awesome. I remember once having a conversation with someone about the idea of timing a vid entirely to the vocal track, except it always just seemed like... well, a fairytale. (I'm so witty at 2:30 in the morning.) But this is just all manner of awesome and funny. Bowie = Queen of Hearts, naturally. Much love.

There's Too Much Light In This Bar - I don't know why, but this vid in particular reminded me of The Gentle Art of Making Enemies. Like if I didn't know you made both, I would have made that assumption anyway. I think it goes down to the fact that you have the most amazing grasp of matching/translating visuals to audio/words that I've ever seen.

I am extremely frightened of your insane goodness.

Again, thank you ever so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed these vids :D

Have just watched "too much light" and have yet to stop shaking. That. Was. Fucking. Awesome. The song was a thing of beauty and the clip choices just perfect. And Gene! Jesus H Christ. You've just distilled his essence into 30 seconds. Brilliant, brilliant video. This one will go straight to my "repeated watching" folder.

PS. Post on lifein1973 please, I would like my fellow fans to experience the awesomeness of this vid.

Thank you ever so much! I'm glad you liked it... and yes, I love Gene.

I'll think about posting to that comm, though I generally dont like to x-post to communities I've not frequented. Feel free to rec me though :D

Alice in Wonderland was very clever indeed!
Aug. 20th, 2006 12:47 pm (UTC)
Glad you liked it :)
Aug. 20th, 2006 06:52 am (UTC)
Both of these vids are awesome. Truly. I am speechless.
Aug. 20th, 2006 12:47 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Your vids went down really well at this year's vividcon!! You should come!
Aug. 20th, 2006 05:26 pm (UTC)
Linkied from comm. The LoM one is probably the best vid I've seen in a very long time. Fucking genius.
Aug. 23rd, 2006 01:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you :D

Can I second everything everybody has already said about the Life On Mars vid? :D
Aug. 30th, 2006 09:13 pm (UTC)
You certainly can! Thanks :D
Aug. 20th, 2006 06:02 pm (UTC)
I didn't think anything would equal my love of Charmax's LoM video, but this has joined it! Fantastic job!

I especially like the ending!

Yay thanks for letting me know :)
Aug. 20th, 2006 06:21 pm (UTC)
Here from the LoM community - absolutely adore the vid. Fantastic work!

And then I had to check out the Alice in Wonderland one - WOW. That's hilarious and totally awesome. :D
Aug. 30th, 2006 09:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you!!

I just watched Too Much Light in this Bar because it was recced at the LoM comm. That really was wonderfully cut. Great track, clever timing. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you :)
