Because we have just over two week until the Vividcon deadline, I have been vidding. (Well, grabbing clips. Two weeks is loads of time to turn a pile of random footage into a vid, right?) As I was saying to lokisrose.livejournal.com
last night, whenever I have a new idea for a vid I add it to The List. It deserves capitalisation, because is a big list. At my current rate of production, it will take me approximately sixty-eight years to finish everything if I never have a new idea.
Yet despite containing more material than I could ever actually produce, the list is not really long enough. Because far more annoying than the songs I will never get around to vidding are the vids that exist in my head without
a song attached. At least when I have a song I know
why I'm not making the vid - I'm waiting on more source, or I don't have the whole thing on DVD, or someone else vidded the song and now I can't decide if I should go ahead or not. (This is what happened to the third part of my Torchwood
series.) Not having music is somehow far more frustrating - sitting on half an idea seems worse than sitting on a whole one.
Things I have long wanted to make include:
- A multifandom drool vid. That consists of something other than clips of Patrick Stewart wearing as few clothes as possible. (OK, that would probably be a pretty good drool vid too. But either way, I don't have a song.)
- A House
vid about Foreman. I've had the general outline of this in my mind since Season Four, and I even have some specific clips picked out. As of Season Eight, I know how I want it to end. But no song!
- A Fringe
vid about Walter. Or, really, any Fringe
vid at all. I can't understand how I have four perfectly viable vid idea for Alias
that I've yet to execute, six for Heroes
that I'll probably never make, more than a dozen for Doctor Who
, and zero for Fringe
I almost never find vid songs; they almost always find me. And I have no idea how one speeds that process along. (So, yes, if you have a brilliant song idea for any of the above things, throw it over here. Who knows, maybe something will be sparked.)
