This year I made:

Rainbowland (The Good Place)
The Scientist (Arrival)

It will take me a little longer to fix up the signed download of The Scientist because my project file is somehow cursed. I apologise!

I sneakily recced both of them even though nobody guessed me for them because I have no shame.

It was FESTIVIDS day and I got FOUR beautiful vids! I never got so many gift vids before! I made two this year, and you will get nothing if you guess me for them. Except for my praise.


Two Inside vids, Last Ray of Light and Bela Lugosi's Dead, they are very different from each other but both accurately portray this particular mood the game put me in, which kind of makes me want to CRAWL OUT OF MY SKIN, and I love that vids can do that. It's an uneasiness and repulsion that I think I'd never felt before. I watched these right after the Waypoint vid that I got, and the change of mood legit gave me whiplash that I needed to recover from before I could continue watching other vids. They're an experience. Giant human globs, y'all.

Rise, a lovely tribute to Drummer, one of my favourite characters in The Expanse who I feel doesn't get the amount of fandom attention she deserves so I am very happy this exists now because I love her and this vid SO MUCH. On one hand I really want to request this fandom every year for all of Festivids' eternity, but on the other hand at the rate we're all making these for each other it might become ineligible at some point soon, oops.

And Crowbar & Sickle for Waypoint's Breakfast & Battlegrounds, which, okay so I had a little freakout about this on twitter and I still don't understand that this EXISTS and someone made that for ME - like, I've never heard anyone in my circles talk about Waypoint, so it's possible this person watched it all BECAUSE OF MY REQUEST and possibly fell in love with it because they must have watched HOURS OF IT to pick up on the community's attitude and inside jokes that they included in the vid, and I am just so AAAAAAA about this. Waypoint and its community were one of the things that carried me through 2017 so having this vid and knowing that someone was so dedicated is really very precious to me.

I HAVE A FEW OTHER RECS TOO but I am no longer capable of using words, so have emotes.

Unwritten, Janet character study (The Good Place)

First off, I can't thank [personal profile] bingeling enough for requesting this and introducing me to this wonderful miniseries. I decided to check it out after reading her letter and I don't think I can put into words how much I enjoyed it. It blew me away. As bingeling said in one of her tweets, I didn't know German tv could DO that. The posters (and that DVD cover, ugh) and marketing really don't do it justice and made it look unnecessarily kitschy, which it isn't, at all. In essence it is about the lives and relationships of four women in 1956 Berlin, where the impact of the war is still felt in subtle and not so subtle ways.

Some viewers expressed interest in watching it after seeing the vid. It is available on Netflix in some countries (that list seems to be incomplete, though - better check your local Netflix for yourself) and I would also be happy to help you find other ways to watch it, although I haven't been able to find any English subtitles for it yet. :(

The vids I made this year were:

A Forest (Limbo) for [personal profile] mithborien
Fire Starter (Supergirl) for [personal profile] elipie
Under Pressure (The Martian) for [personal profile] niyalune

I definitely expected someone to guess me for A Forest but apparently it wasn't as obvious as I thought! Meanwhile [personal profile] anoel guessed me for Under Pressure, which I expected to be the least obvious. Full of surprises.

will hopefully get around to finish vid posts complete with subtitles/notes/links after the weekend/once I'm not tired af anymore.

I got three perfect amazing vids this year!!!!!!!!

Centuries, a Wayne's World vid
Commander Badass, a tribute to Commander Lewis from The Martian
Wir beide, a Kommissar Rex vid

WHERE DO I EVEN BEGINNNNNNN. I am so happy that two of my long-time requests have been filled, both of which were extremely formative fandoms of my childhood, and that I got a vid about one of my biggest fandoms of 2015 in addition to that. So happy.

I made 3 vids this year (...again) and I think only one of them is pretty obvious, although so far none of the guessers in the official Guess the Festividder post seem to think so.
I also abandoned more WIPs than usual this Festivids and felt a bit awful about it but a couple of those requests were filled by other vidders, so that and my amazing gifts for me made me feel a lot better about it.

I haven't watched many vids yet but here's a handful of not-for-me-vids that I loved so far:

Pick a Part That's New, Long Way Round/Down - watch it for Ewan McGregor's butt and a fuckin' bear
This Must Be The Place, Fear The Walking Dead - it's so beautiful and wistful
Still Alive, Black Sails - HILARIOUS PIRATES
Galaxyrise - multifandom in spaaaaaace
Elliot, Mr. Robot - I don't have words to describe this, it's just so interesting
Your Mother, Saga - this is just so amazing technically. How does one put so much movement into static comic book pages, vidder is probably a wizard
