Hi! Hello! Yes!  
 
You are great.  People who make vids for other people are great.  As a reward I am going to try this strange new thing called "brevity", for your sake.  I'm prone to auto-RPF bloviating so let's consider this a character building exercise.  
 
General things about vids (mostly re-pasted from last year):
 
General Likes in Vids
 
I am inclined to like vids. I like playing with lyrics and the theme of the song. I LOVE LOVE LOVE internal motion and choreography. I like it when I can see something new every time I see a vid. I love when vidders get interpretive with lyrics. I like to be moved emotionally, in any direction.  I like critique.  Uh I guess what I am saying is that I like vids?
 
General Dislikes in Vids
 
Overuse of literalism. Overuse of filters/effects for the sake of using filters and effects. Microcutting for the sake of micro-cutting. 
 
...actually that sounds like different parts of the same issue: it's just about making mindful desicions about the hows and whys of a vid. (I'm one of those people, sorry). I think the idea should carry the vid, and the cutting and effects should serve the idea. There's a really wide variety of styles that I like, including effects heavy vids, but they all have *intent*, if that makes sense.  
 
Music 
 
I'm pretty easy with music, as I genuinely enjoy a wide range of stuff. All time favorites include David Bowie, pre-Good News Modest Mouse, Velvet Underground, MGMT, Tori Amos, Andrew Bird, Joanna Newsom, the Pixies, and classic Elton John. Currently I can't stop listening to alt-J. But I like rock, most pop (esp upbeat), folk, soul, funk, psychadelic stuff, intrumental, metal, hip hop and I can be convinced about country western. I like finding new music through vids. 
 
I don't have a lot of no-go areas, but "Things that sound like Nickleback or Evanescence" are gonna be a hard sell  (Again, sorry, I am one of *those* people).
 
Okay!  On to the specifics:

Dear Festividder,

OMG, look at you! You are here to make me a VID! <3 <3 <3 to you! You are amazing, and this is a super cool thing to do for someone. So LET'S GET TO IT!

My theme for this year is FEELINGS. I have a somewhat random assortment of movies and TV, but they all have something in common: they all have moved me in some significant way.

Currently I can't stop listening to Sleigh Bells, San Fermin (esp Sonsick omg), Cold War kids and Janelle Monae. But I like rock, most pop (esp upbeat), folk, soul, funk, psychadelic stuff, intrumental, metal, hip hop and I can be convinced about country western. I like finding new music through vids.

I don't have a lot of no-go areas, but "Things that sound like Nickleeback or Evanescence" are gonna be a hard sell. Also this is totally random but I basically can't stand Vampire Weekend. I don't know what it is about them. I don't know. I just...*shrugs*.

Dear Festividder,

Well, here we are again. Or in your case it may be the first time. Who knows? Regardless, you are here now to make me a vid! Either way my tiny hands are clapping in anticipation.

This year I have a theme, and that theme is "formative childhood movies/tv". Be warned, I watched a hell of a lot of cartoons.

Also, here is a general prompt: I really don't have a lot of specific ideas in mind for these sources. What I'm honestly saying with my requests is this: You, My Secret Vidder, volunteered for these sources. You did that for a reason. That's what I want to see: your reason. I didn't have a lot of "TV friends" growing up who I shared these with. Seeing someone else getting excited about them via VIDS would be awesome. I am, as always, happy to have treats!

So, in rough order of how tightly they have wound my heartstrings, I give you:

The Wonderful World of Puss In Boots (Toei Animation 1969) SAFETY )

Twice Upon a Time (safety) )

Toys )

Count Duckula )

All Dogs Go To Heaven )
Rainbow Bright and the Star Stealer )
