secretlytodream: (Vidding)
[personal profile] secretlytodream
In every beginning of each year I'm thinking, like, will I be vidding by the end of it? What will I be doing? So I'm just really glad I'm still doing it and that I still have all of you awesome people who watch my videos. Thank you :)

So, this is entire 2010 year of vidding!

You can find 2008 and 2009 here and here respectively :)

My goals for 2010 from the last year were:

- NEW FANDOMS! I need to try something new. The problem is - every time it all comes down to mah show. :\
Succeed! I vidded a few new shows and a few movies. I think it's a progress, I found out that I actually like vidding not only vidding spn.

- Finish all of my projects. And then, maybe, take a little break. I actually wanna try to paint more.
50/50. I did finish everything, I don't think there was anything left in 2010 from 2009. But I didn't quite painted more. Well, we have a whole new year ahead...

- A few more remastering. At least two.
50/50 again! I made one remastering for Keep On breathing video. And then I made remastering on remastering >.< Don't even ask, I don't think I will ever post this one. The funny thing is I don't remember the other video I had in mind when I wrote "at least two..." Hm.

31 videos total. Wow I clearly have no social life /o\

My favorite video this year (of my own):
From The Deepest Of Red To The Lightest Of Grey. It was the first one to think about and I guess it's true. In September I was in a some kind vid-block, after my so-called hiatus for almost a month I really wanted to make something and it felt like I lost my mojo. So I found this music and I just started to play with it. First I actually wanted to make a video for another fandom, but then I ended up vidding Supernatural, and it turned quite....interesting. So, if this video isn't my favorite, then it's at least the one I remembered the most. The other one, though, is When Things Explode. I went through hard times making it. I also made for a challenge and this video actually took high points. I remember freaking out about the dead line and about that I didn't know what to put here and there and I told [ profile] auntshoe about it and she, an awesome muffin she is, told me to use fireworks, the amulet and little Sammy. And you know what? WORKED LIKE MAGIC.

My least favourite video this year:
Hm, hard question. Not because I shamelessly love all I do, but because there are actually quite a few of them. I would say Eclipsed, Player, The Safest Place. I made "Player" just because I needed to go through the season in my head, and now that I think about it, I don't really know why I even made this video, let alone posted it. Eclipsed is a little different. I kinda loved it and at the same time I didn't. I think I could have done better. I kinda struggled to finish The Safest Place, because when I first hit the block mark I left this video for almost a month (or was it two?..) and then I came back to it and forced myself to finish. I could have dropped it all together, but somehow I can't leave the video unfinished when I'm some part through it. So...yeah.

Most successful video
In my opinion - A Rush Of Blood To The head. Working with [ profile] obsessive24 was a bless, and this video was so straight, so clear and so simple to understand that I was surprised in the end how well Nicky guided me through it. She saw it all in her head from the very beginning and gladly worked as a tool to make this video come real :) Actually, after this video I started working on When Things explode, which is another successful video in my opinion, but I struggled A LOT because I felt like it was chaotic, there wasn't ay story or plot or anything. So, yeah, after DH vid I kinda felt lost lol Another successful video is From The Deepest Of Red... I think it was something new and pretty emotional, as well as Voices On The Wind - Sammy obviously does things to people :P

Video most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
Rabbit, My Claws Are Down. I was so obsessed with the idea of comparising Winchesters with a lion and a wolf, and I thought that everyone would see it. Obviously, everyone didn't lol

Most fun video:
Hm...working on my BB'10 video was fun - both the trailer for the challenge itself and for my story with [ profile] sanann. I also had a lot of fun working on my J2 video "Mouthwash", because, come on... :) And When Things Explode. But it was more like hysteric than fun because of the dead line and constant freaking out...

Video with single sexiest moment:
Er?.. I don't really know. I LOVED the scene in "Lucky Number Slevin" when the lie in bed and it's just.....I found it very sexy.

Biggest vid fail:
Er... Payer? Eclipsed? For the very same reasons.

Hardest video to make:
Dollhouse. No doubts. It was hard enough that it was a fandom that I was unfamiliar with. I also had troubles with video files, and I didn't actually know what I was doing in the beginning. As I already said, I was lucky I got Nicky because if it wasn't for her...♥

The things I've learned this year:
Patience. Well, I think it's one f the basic things you need to know when you start vidding. Also - no rushing. I mean, it's good to have a rest, and nt vidding non-stop 24/7. As you can see in the second half of the year I made twice as less videos than in the first half, and I actually feel good about it. I was trying to find something to slow down, because it felt like I wanted to make everything at the same time - which isn't good at all - so I'm glad I finally realized how to actually choose from what I want to make and what people want me to make.

For 2011:
- More different fandoms. I had a lot of fun working with different footage, so I want to keep trying it.
- More vidding experiments. Not sure what exactly it means right now, but, I want to try to find more interesting ideas for editing.
- To make some study videos. I actually have some plans for a Sam character study video, and I also kind of started one video about Supernatural. It's a little different from what I usually do, but...who knows :)

Well, this is it. See you next year! ♥

Your videos were all amazing this year! Rabbit, My Claws are Down is one of my favorites! So I at least love it. XDD

Oh, and your video "We Can Move On" for Mr. Nobody was amazing - even though I hadn't seen the film. So your video inspired me to watch the film, which I did, and I was blown away. it's definitely one of my favorite films of all time. So thanks for that. :D

I don't give you enough love for your videos, that's for sure. I'm so glad you pulled this year's all together in one place! I'm going keep coming back to this post until I've seen all the ones I want to see at least twice. You really do incredible work.

Thank you!!

You need to do more WC as well as Dean. The one you did in June was awesome. :)

And you know I'll take anything Dean-centric. :)

I surely will! I have a WC video in plans, though I still need to convert the episodes. Good quality and stuff ))

I know! And I know I still have to finish that little Dean-o thing-y I promised you awhile back as a part of the gift meme! It feels like it was ages ago *____* Would you settle for a Christmas/NY gift instead? lol

I thought you'd forgotten (which would have been okay). Yes, Christmas/NY's giftie would be perfection.

I loved "Mouthwash" -- it gave me a much needed smile on this Monday afternoon.

Of course I haven't! *pouts* In fact i have a sticker on my desk with the reminder. ALL THE IMPORTANT THINGS! :P

Well, that's ok then )) now I know what to do next ;)

and oh! I actually thought you don't what J2 videos - I thought you were more of a gen SPN videos - but I'm super glad you liked that one! I had a lot of fun making it, and I'm really happy it put a smile on your fae ♥ Mondays should start and end with those smiles ))

Well, I don't watch/read J2 (as in slash) but I saw it as more of a "just the guys being guys" vid. Is that what you meant it to be? I like seeing them goof off and be regular guys as well as the characters sometimes.

Well, actually all of my j2 videos are generally just guys being themselves ))) Them-dorky-adorable-selves) So you're safe to watch them all ;)

Huh, I'm surprised that "Rabbit, My Claws Are Down" wasn't more popular because I think the wolf imagery in that (and in "The Roaring of Lions") was really cool. I can't think of many people who don't love feral!Winchesters.

I've got to say, the videos from September to November are my favorites, especially "From the Deepest of Red." So excited about your Sam character study! You're right, Sam does do stuff to people. ;)

See, I knew I'd missed out on some! I'll be sure to leave more feedback when I get a chance, but for now, I wanted to say that I loved "Recessional" and am glad to hear that you're still keen on trying out new sources even if they might not be as popular as your SPN vids.

Now you have the chance to catch up :P let me know what you've missed?

Well, I think the main thing that I learnt this year is that I kinda really love vidding, not only vidding spn, as I already said. So, it's awesome, and it's an amazing feeling of excitement ^___^

OH loki i am going to steal this format from you okay? lol i want to try doing this.

But back to your post. my favorite video from you has to be from the deepest of red to the lightest of grey. I honestly can re-watch that over and over. Burden of Sacrifice will always be my favorite dean video and I honestly enjoyed your Rabbit, My Claws are down. Anywhoo you are an AMAZING vidder loki. Im glad i get to watch your videos.

Sure thing! I actually stole it from someone in 2008 and I just keep making this meme every year ))

Burden was actually one of my favorites too. I can't vid Dean that easily as Sam, don't know why really, but I'm really glad I decided to give that song a chance. I was surprised how easily everything was, the parallels, the metaphors, the structure of the video.

Thanks bb! <333

How funny I think I'm the opposite of you. Sam is so hard for me and yet he is one of my favorite characters ever.

But yes oh gosh when I get up in the morning Ill go through what I love about my favorites from you!

Congrats hun on another stella year. :)

Patience is an interesting thing yeah? At times I am busting to get something completed but I prefer it when I can take a step back and go slow so I end up with something I am happy with.

I have just finished reading (well listening to) Dictionary for a Dead Language, I am looking forward to watching your vid now. I am particularly interested to see how on earth you made a vid to that story... :)

Here's to 2011! *smish*

LOVED the story. Amazing how it is reminiscent of S6 Sam. And also S6 Dean - he sticks with Sam and believes in him.

Their love and commitment shone through. As did what might have happened if Lucifer took control of Sam's body. LOVED that he was out of it for so long and just didn't realise he could talk and have control of his own body. Incredibly well observed. (And I've just realised I've said all this to you and not the author /o\)

So yeah. Look forward to seeing it. Hopefully tomorrow. Though I'm not at home now, so getting on line isn't as easy.

Well, don't forget to leave the author some feedback ;) I was a little sad in the end, because Sam wasn't the same, you know? It was kinda happy-sad ending, but the story is great, it's true :)
