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.

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.


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. 


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 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*.
