This vid was made for another vid project being run by [personal profile] silly_cleo (see "Landsailor" and Aims.) This time around, each vidder is making a vid for a song on Taylor Swift's new album, 1989. This vid is - well, you'll see. I'm very grateful to [personal profile] purplefringe for her kind commentary and help with it.

So, I finally watched my way through to the end of How I Met Your Mother, now that there's an alternate ending to take the edge of my rage, but, er. Er, I have never been so angry about anything I made a vid to express it before. (I may yet make an actual post about this, in actual words, that are not just "aaaaargh", but we'll see.) I've also never made a vid for a single character before, nor for something with less than eleven seasons of source. Er.

Anyway: this is a a vid in praise of Tracy McConnell, perfect beautiful dorky musician economist Tracy, who deserved so much more than she got. (It is a great disappointment to me that I could not fit any of Tracy's paintings of robots doing track and field into this vid. I love her so much.)

[NB re: spoilers - for the last season of How I Met Your Mother (er, if you don't want to know who the mother is, look away a couple of paragraphs ago!), but not the actual ending.]

[vid] what you're waiting for
by Raven
In exactly forty-five days from now, you and I are going to meet, and we're going to fall in love.

Also, if you're looking for the alternate ending, which I now subscribe to utterly and completely, here it is. One of the many things I love about it is that it has no new footage - which is to say it is, itself, a vid! - and also Alyson Hannigan hasn't aged in twenty years, and I'm gonna end up making the 1000-word post on my thoughts and feelings about this, aren't I.

Thank you everyone who helped and cheerled with this. I'm also pleased to have finished this exactly a month after Vidukon, where I seem to remember publicly promising to make it.

[vid] Disappear [Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine]

With a word, with a line, you only disappear. Identity and violence.

I am at [community profile] vidukon_cardiff, which seems like an excellent opportunity to post this vid! It is not a premiere; I finished it between panels!

Many thanks to [personal profile] cosmic_llin, [personal profile] thingswithwings, and the house at no. 46 for their help with this.

[vid] we came to learn the sea [Star Trek: TOS, TNG, Voyager, DS9, and Enterprise]

This vid was made for [personal profile] silly_cleo's wonderful Aims vid project, in which a group of vidders are each making one vid for each song on Vienna Teng's new album. I highly recommend it. I am very grateful to [personal profile] such_heights and [personal profile] purplefringe for their kind commentary and technical advice on this vid, not to mention many glasses of wine and their sofa to sleep on!

A small fact which may aid in your enjoyment of this vid, if you did not already know it: in Europe, India, Australia and most of the rest of the English-speaking world, the standard voltage for mains electricity is between 230 and 240V.

raven: (misc - inside the box)
lolol you guys I made a constructed reality vid. Really. I guess this may be an actual testament to how much I love this ridiculous show. I am going to also put this on Tumblr I think? Hence my actually sitting down to learn how to sign vids!

Anyway! Here 'tis, Welcome To Night Vale, Cecil and Dana.

[vid] we were born in a summer storm [Welcome To Night Vale]

Listeners, I do not know where or when Dana is, but I am going to sit by this phone and wait for her call.

I have nothing to say for this one, except, it's a love letter. [personal profile] cosmic_llin looked it over for me; thank you very much, my dear.

About a month ago, I said, "The world does not want a vid about land registration. But I PLAN TO GIVE IT ONE ANYWAY."

Here it is.

This is my very first vid ever, and I'd like to take a moment to thank [personal profile] thingswithwings, my dear and patient friend who walked me through a tonne of stuff for this (she made me not one but several video tutorials about aspect ratio, srsly) and the wonderful [personal profile] such_heights, who betaed it, and also who talked me into trying to vid in the first place.

There is some meta to go with it, but, eh. Possibly in the set of things only interesting to me. eta: I posted it.
