Shamelessly stolen from [personal profile] frayadjacent and [personal profile] chaila! Give me a number (or a few) and I will try to answer things! Some numbers are missing because my intelligent predecessors went through combing for questions they didn't think they'd be so interested in, but I'm, um, lazy, so I just copy-pasted one of their lists and ran with it. YAY ME.

1. Describe your comfort zone—a typical you-vid.
2. Is there a genre or style you've yet to try your hand at, but really want to?
3. Is there a genre or style you wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole?
4. How many vid ideas are you nurturing right now? Care to share one of them?
5. Share one of your strengths.
6. Share one of your weaknesses.
7. Point to a section from one of your favorite vids you've made and explain why you're proud of it.
8. Which vid was the hardest to make?
9. Which vid was the easiest to make?
11. Is there a section of canon above all others that inspires you just a little bit more?
12. What's the best vidding advice you've ever come across?
13. What's the worst vidding advice you've ever come across?
14. If you only could vid one show/movie for the rest of your life, which show/movie would it be?
15. Do you work mostly from start to finish, or do you vid sections out of order?
16. Do you use any tools, like clip notes or storyboards?
18. Describe your perfect vidding conditions.
19. How many times do you usually revise your vid before posting?
20. Choose a section from one of your earlier vids and talk about whether and how you'd do it differently now. (Person sending the ask is free to make suggestions).
21. If you were to revise one of your older vids from start to finish, which would it be and why?
22. Have you ever deleted one of your published vids?
23. What do you look for in a beta?
24. Do you beta yourself? If so, what kind of beta are you?
25. How do you feel about collaborations?
26. Share three of your favorite vidders and why you like them so much.
27. Do you accept prompts?

31. Which is your favorite site for posting vids?

oooh, you know Festivids allows for those sources this year, right? I would loooove to see what you'd do with a comics vid :D

I def agree with 12. *pointed glance at self*

And 19 makes a lot of sense. If you're constantly reworking as you go, there's never really a first/second/etc draft.

Ugh i say fever is so beautiful, even though your Farscape vids also make me wish I knew/remembered Farscape better!

I think Farscape is one of the shows I could keep going back to, even if I think, without being stuck in some draconian "one vidding show only!" reality, I'm unlikely to do so in any serious way.

Interesting how this works! I feel similarly, like I feel done with TSCC finally, but also if I had to vid only one thing forever, I'd still pick it. It's rare to have something that you *could* stick with forever, if you wanted to. Though for the record, I'd always love more Farscape vids from you if you ever felt moved in that direction. :)

I felt it was part of a genuine meta conversation

Ugh I miss this too, a lot. But that ME vid was gorgeous, and I didn't even grasp all the nuances of the meta and fandom meta/conversation, etc. Vids > words so often for me now, which is interesting. Partly I think it feels safer, and partly it actually feels more *effective*.

Slowest reply ever but *returns fistbump*

Like, I think it's partly to do with having started in a program where I HAD to, but it just makes way more sense to me that way!

I totally missed that you were doing this EVEN THOUGH YOU TOLD ME YOU WERE DOING THIS. Since other folks have already asked the ones I've been asking, here are some more:

Huh, that's interesting that you need distractions while vidding! I definitely like to have something to entertain me while clipping. This isn't difficult because Mr Adjacent likes to play music or have streaming sitcoms going, and that's about the right level of distraction/entertainment for me. But when I'm editing I strongly prefer to be alone or at least, like you, not have someone near my screen. Preferably for hours! This doesn't happen much, though I might be able to set up an office of sorts in our new apartment.

What about vidding has changed for you so that you do it in short chunks? Is it necessity or is it a preference?

I still very much prefer to download vids, so I'm always glad when vidders give me that option. In fact I don't watch "YouTube vidders" much not for aesthetic reasons but because I rarely want to stream my vids. This is partly because WiFi in Australia is slow but also because I tend to accumulate vids to watch at a time when I'll have the opportunity to not be disturbed. Plus it's easier to find them for rewatching. :D

From: [personal profile] frayadjacent
Yeah, that all makes sense! And I totally feel you on the self-consciousness. I'm the same way. I have gotten to the point where I can vid in public (usually more like clipping, though, because I can't focus intently in public) but only if my screen isn't visible to anyone.

Speaking of clipping: I know you don't, but I'm curious what your non-clipping looks like. For my WIP I have the episodes imported directly in the NLE, and so instead of clipping (in the sense that I usually think of it) I scrub through the episodes, select a rough edit of a clip I want, and drop it on the timeline in roughly the area I want it. I'll go through some chunk of episode(s) as time/patience allows, dropping clips on different tracks if need be, until I get to editing that section. Do you do something like that?

I've realized that I can also import my BtVS DVD rips into the NLE once I get back to vidding Buffy. But since I know that footage so well I could probably work more from the idea, I.e., "I want this clip here and I know exactly where to find it". However I tried that briefly and was totally overwhelmed and didn't even know where to start and put the project on hold. Lol.

The first method still relies on looking through the footage. I don't need to know exactly what goes where as long as I know what kind of clips I generally want to go in a given section. Then looking through the episodes is how I find the clips that are of those type (or find they don't exist, or find that there are other cool clips that do something else that I haven't even thought about, etc). But the second method requires a much clearer idea of what to do, which seems really hard? Like it's hard to imagine planning a vid in any kind of detail without looking through the episodes first. Though I might be able to do it to some extent with Buffy. If I don't get totally overwhelmed first. :D

From: [personal profile] frayadjacent
ha ha, we both got overwhelmed and gave up by the opposite things.

I really do want to get back to that BtVS project and use a method more like yours, because I know that show so well and it would just be so much faster than going through all the episodes and clipping. Which I did for all my previous BtVS vids. Clipping for Tightrope took like 3 months or something. That was all I did, vidding wise, and I did it probably 3-6 days per week. /o\ I DON'T NEED TO DO THAT AGAIN.

I don't like vidding when people can see unless they're also vidders.

Phew! I sincerely plan to absorb all your vidding mojo next time I visit, good to know that's a thing I can do ;)
