Shameless Plea for Vidding Inspiration

Poll #1228565 Vid Inspiration Poll

I'd like to start a new vid, but I'm deep in the summer doldrums and need an injection of outside enthusiasm. So - which one(s) would YOU like to see? And if you have anything to add in the comments, I'd appreciate it!

Heroes - Hiro's attempts to change the future
0(0.0%)

ETA: I'm working on the Vecchio-in-Vegas vid right now, but I'm excited to get to several of the others on the list, now that other people have expressed an interest. Starbuck! Teyla! Amanda!

I would love to see a good Teyla vid. Im not even IN SGA fandom, but that would still make me really happy. Heh.

Good luck!

I voted for that one, too!

But let me rec you a Teyla vid: She's A Rebel by sinden. Well, I like it, anyway. Of course, it was made in 2005, so there is a lot of room for new Teyla vids!

Hmm, couldn't download from that site, but I've asked her to upload to another server. Thanks, Isis, it's always good to make sure you're not repeating something the audiencxe has already seen.

Oh, your idea sounds very different - I just wanted to point out a cool vid, and I hope it wasn't a problem to comment here.

No problem at all! I was just saying that it's a problem when vidding in an unfamiliar fandom. You never know which clips have been used ad nauseum.

Oh, I don't make vids because I'm in a fandom. I just ... make them. Teyla is a very interesting character, and they never do enough with her. Thanks, SD!

oh man, so much symbolic fake mustache, so little time!

*blinks, mouthing the words to herself* I have no idea what that means, but I'll take it as a compliment. Umm, thank you?

lol! it was in response to the idea of an armando vid. i feel like there would be a number of shots of his fake mustache. it's totally symbolic---like when he's in the car with fraser, and he has to put it back on, and it's all sad? sorry, i guess it wasn't very cogent. :)

Aha! Yes, now it makes total sense. False symbolic moustaches indeed!

Hey, thanks SB! I'm trying to work on my ds_northernnews story, but it's just not playing well with others. Hopefully this will break the deadlock.

The RayK vid will be funky and cheerful! With angsty bits. God, I'm so predictable.

Me, I'd love to see a vid of Jean Paul, but that might need psychic software. Or better, Joe and Jean Paul doing some Caribbean Hendrix. That's me, undemanding *g*

Oh, I know! Last year, I really, really wanted to make a vid of Fraser in prision for "Innocent Until Proven Guilty". The source material just wasn't very cooperative. Luckily, I get to enjoy the vids in my head, even if they'll never exist outside.

I meant to vote also for BSG but something went wrong. I think Starbuck is a fascinating character. Telya could use some of Starbuck's toughness. Amanda vid would be good, too. :)

Starbuck is truly fascinating, and you have to appreciate genderfuck in a main character. The SGA writers never seem to know what to do with Teyla, which is tragic. And Amanda is love.

Of course, now the funny thing is, instead of not being able to decide which to work on because I'm 'blah' about all my vid ideas, I can't decide which to start on because I'm so EXCITED!

What SB said. Ditto. MAXIMUM RAYK.

There is no such thing as too much. :)

RayK is love!

I voted BSG, because Starbuck is my weakness, but it was a difficult choice, because I think your idea about a look at The Game, set to Gangsta's Paradise could be awesome =D
keerawa
Jul. 24th, 2008 02:23 pm (UTC)
And at first </i>a look at The Game, set to Gangsta's Paradise</i> was a sort of joke, a cracked out Bad Vid idea. But the more I listened to the song, the more I thought it would actually work. Yay Starbuck!

Thanks birggitt!

Amanda has a special place in my heart as well, the scamp!

Well, I'll always vote for more HL vids -- how is Duncan bad for Amanda? She probably ends up making a profit anway -- but oh, I'd love some HL podfic, too. We need some out there for people to hear!
