VVC

After skipping last years VVC and procrastinating forever (because the flight is fricking expensive and I hate long-distance flights with a vengance) I've now got my plane ticket. So, who else from around here is going?

And more importantly, is anybody interested in sharing a room? I'm laid back and easy-going, but I'd prefer a 'quiet room' with no room parties, purely because I'm coming from the UK and likely will be a bit jet lagged and prone to start dozing off at 7pm. I'm getting into Chicago on Wednsday (to give me some time to adjust) and am leaving on Monday. Let me know if you're interested to join me for all or part of that, I'd probably would make the reservations so that I don't have to move rooms while I'm over there. Anybody coming from Europe as well? We could keep each other company at 4 am in the morning over early breakfast....

Comment, PM or email if interested...

A fun and lightweight vid for Club Vivid with the depth of a Paris Hilton soundbite and sophistication of a cheeseburger. Big Thank You to  the Queen of the Bouncy Vid,  [livejournal.com profile] talitha78,    for looking it over and giving me pointers along the way.  Download & streaming )

In this case, not to Vividcon. After a lot of soul searching and cheap-flight searching I decided to roll-over my registration to next year. Main reason really is finances, because flights to the US are fricking expensive at the moment, and if I was a sensible person I should be spending that money on doing up house & garden rather than a con on the other side of the ocean.
 
Also, (the sensible side of my brain says) I had VVC last year and VidUKon this year, so it makes sense to roll-over to next year and then in 2013 there'll be another VidUKon. If it wasn't for the people aspect of the con I actually be really  cool with the decision, but missing out on re-connecting with friends & acquaintances and meeting new folks sucks. Shouldn't being sensible feel better?!?

Got back home early this morning and went straight to bed for some catch-up sleep, but it's to noisy around here, so now I got myself a strong coffee and moved myself in front of the computer. Best bits, in no particular order:


Programming:

- I so loved the panels! Interacting with other vidders in real time and discussing vidding, editing, and all sorts of related issues is something that the internets can't give me.
- For the same reasons: Concrit, in-depth review & vid review.
- For the fun and excitement factor: Club Vivid, Premiers & Challenges. Danced my feet of at the former and had my mind blown by the latter two.

Socialising:
- Meeting new people and getting to put faces to names! So many lovely people, so little time...Very thankful to the con com for providing us with large print id and [livejournal.com profile] par_avion printing off user icons.
- BADFIC! Aragorn doing cartwheels - for no particular reason - and horse porn are burned into my brain forever.
- Trip to the Fields Museum with [livejournal.com profile] talitha78 including 'behind the scenes' access.
- HBO delivering the perfect True Blood episode for a VVC room party.

Vids:
- Stay Awake by [livejournal.com profile] laurashapiro. As it says on the tin: don't close your eyes! (not yet released - premier vid)
- Bitter-Sweet by [livejournal.com profile] mresundance. Visually stunning (man, those colours) re-telling of Kingdom of Heaven from a neglected POV. (premier vid)
- On the Prowl by [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain and [livejournal.com profile] sisabet . Utter mind-fuck of the best kind, making a statement that was long overdue. (not yet released - challenge vid)
- Ada by [livejournal.com profile] braver_creature. Makes Inglorious Bastards look like an art house film and celebrates the power of vidding! (premier vid)
- Party in the Midlands by [livejournal.com profile] millylicious. Perfection in motion...(Club Vivid premier)
- Wild Horses by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny. A celebratory relationship vid for a classic pairing. (auction vid)
- Deeper and Deeper by [livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl . Manages to make LotS look dark and edgy. I adore this vid. (premiered on the sexuality vid show)
- Etheric Messages by [livejournal.com profile] thuviaptarth. Very creepy and intriguing to somebody who's never seen Fringe. (new to me vid seen at the vid reading panel)
-Also dying to see Goodbye by [livejournal.com profile] heresluck and Becoming Brothers by [livejournal.com profile] kassrachel  because I sat through them with my eyes closes - I still haven't seen season four of Friday Night Lights

More recs might come later. Need sleep now...
