Spring Equinox 2017 - vidding letter

Hi fellow vidder!

I have to say, I'm super excited about this fest. It feels like such a long time between Festivids, so having a couple of new pitstops during the year is going to be so much fun.

The number one thing that I ask of you for this fest is that you have fun. I really mean that. Use my requests as an excuse to make the wildest, over-the-toppiest id vid of your dreams, and I will love it and you. :)

My favourite types of vids include: action and fast-paced vids, experimental or weird vids, constructed reality or AU vids, and vids that are full of pretty, pretty visuals. Constructed reality seems a particularly good match for this fest, given all the cool real footage NASA has released now, in addition to the usual sources of stuff, like other films the actors have done, fan works, and so on. I also feel like there could stand to be more vids about women, people of colour, and queer people/relationships, so if you want to focus on one or more of those I'd be super happy. That said, with this particular fest's theme, I'd also be pleased with a vid that has no people at all, and just an awful lot of stuff in SPAAAAAAACE. :)

I don't usually suggest music, as I'm happy for you to find the best fit for the vid -- I have pretty broad tastes. I would request that if you sample audio at all, you don't have it over the top of song lyrics, as it'll mean I can't hear either the lyric or the sample.

That's it. Go forth and have fun!

Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies)  
Tags: James T. Kirk, Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Spock (Star Trek)
Summary: What I would really love is something that merges source from TOS and AOS, but honestly anything that explores these characters or something about the 'verse would be awesome. I'm particularly fascinated by the way in which Kirk=ethos, Bones=pathos, and Spock=logos in the original series, and how that's shifted (to pathos, pathos, pathos) in the AOS. But I'd also love a character study of Sulu or Uhura.

Space Exploration RPF  
Summary: There's so much to choose from here. I'd love something that takes advantage of some of the great footage of the planets, in particular, but the space station or Apollo or Mercury programs would also be wonderful.

Jupiter Ascending (2015)
Tags: Jupiter Jones/Caine Wise Jupiter, Jones & Caine Wise, Jupiter Jones
Summary: I'd love something that explores Jupiter and/or Caine, or their relationship. If there's a particular aspect of this source you'd like to extrapolate from and create a constructed reality, that would be even awesomer. I adore constructed reality, and this text is *begging* for it.

Fifth Element (1997)  
Tags: Leeloo, Korben Dallas, Ruby Rhod
Summary: I love the look of this movie, so a vid which highlights the aesthetic would tick my boxes.

Pigs In Space (Muppets) 
Summary: If you make a Pigs in Space vid, I will adore you forever. It has to be larger than life, and take full advantage of its spoofy nature. :)

Star Trek: Voyager  
Tags: Kathryn Janeway, Chakotay (Star Trek)
Summary: I've said Janeway or Chakotay above, because I would love a kick-ass vid about either of them (or both) in particular, but you could vid pretty much anything from this source and I'd be happy.

Cosmos - Carl Sagan 
Summary: Spaaaaaaace. I love me some nerds loving space, so a vid that glories in that would be fab.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015) 
Tags: Rey (Star Wars), Finn (Star Wars), Poe Dameron, Leia Organa 
Summary: I love Star Wars. Anything you do will be okay with me.
