Festivids is live!

The festivids songvid exchange is live!

I haven't had a chance to do more than a quick poke, as I need to get off to work, but it was enough to find some wonderful vids. Here are the links:


The recs

Lullabye for a Stormy Night (The Sound of Music)
This was made for me, and it's spectacular. I was secretly hoping for a Sound of Music vid, but I had no idea I'd get something this amazing. It's warm and moving, and full of life and love. I adore it.

The Crackiness Patrol (Classic Who)
Ahahaha. Funny. And so perfect.

One (Magnum P.I.)
I didn't know it was possible to make such a moving character study of Magnum, but here it is, and it's awesome.

Just a Girl (Much Ado About Nothing)
Funny, lovely character study of Beatrice.

Your Song (Much Ado About Nothing)
Just as funny, just as lovely character study of Benedick. Beatrice and Benedick for the win!

Survival Instinct (Pitch Black)
No lyric, gorgeous cutting, to make an edgy, blade-sharp piece of eye candy.

Passenger Fever (TwinPeaks) Warning: Non-con.
This captures the dreamy horror of the show perfectly.

Second lot of recs

A personal thought
I can't decide whether I regret taking part in this fest or not. There are many pleasures: I love vids, and being part of the hum of the Fest is fantastic. Also, the vid I received is awesome beyond the telling.

There are things that make me sad, too. One big one, really: the rest of the people who signed up are completely out of my league as vidders (thank god I didn't peek at the sign-up list, or I would have defaulted for sure). Even though I did my very best to make something my recipient would like, I can't help but I feel I've let the side down because my skills just weren't up to the task. Ironic, as I actually like my vid; it just totally doesn't compare to the rest on any level. :(

I can tell I'm going to be thinking about this some more. I will probably find peace with it after a bit, and I'm not looking for sympathy or reassurance. This is just how I feel, and I wanted to take a snapshot.

ETA: LOL. Okay, I'm over myself. The recipient seems to genuinely like my vid, and it turns out that's all I really care about. I'm so easy. Festivids! \o/
