Vidding Truth Meme  
This is perfect timing for me, as I'm about to start a vidding project in February. I could really use some concrit as a focus for what to work on.

The Great Vidding Truth Meme | My Thread

How it works:
- Comment with your user name, and those willing shall reply with thoughts on any vids that you have made. That means it does not make a difference what subject(s) your pieces reflect. This is entirely multi-fandom.
- When replying to an individual, please remember to comment ANONYMOUSLY, no matter your response. You may include time markers from the person's vids if need be.

I think leaving good contcrit is not easy and I view it as an act of generosity. My sense is even in these Truth Memes people are nervous to tell the truth, but I'd really love it if anyone would take the time.

One of the things I like about having a handful of vidders on my flist is that there are things I admire about all of them, but I don't envy any, if that makes sense?

I love DB's enthusiasm and passion. Vidding may involve angst, but she somehow turns it into one big, bouncing, inspiring squeeful hobby for everyone around her.

Mariks makes the most wonderfully complex vids, in every way possible - she bends and folds and likes and binds and breaks video clips and effects, producing vids I doubt anyone else could produce anything similar too; she's possibly the only person where the first couple of times I watch a vid, I realise afterwards I'm sitting there with my mouth open and can't remember anything other than "that was awesome."

Pi somehow manages to make vids that feel slow and langourous compared to anything I've ever made, and yet they don't feel as if they're lagging, like a lot of vids do; it's more like watching considered, detailed thoughts spreading out.

And there's you, of course - the multi-talented multi-fandom vidder, who can vid half a dozen fandoms with consumate ease, who has the narrative so firmlly in mind that when you vid there's never a wasted clip, not even a half second in a six minute song. Each vid you make is better than the last, and yet there's never a sense of you having hit any sort of ceiling because each is usually more complex than the last, too.

I have the best flist for vidding inspiration :)

What a sweet sentiment! I'd reply about you in kind, but you know I love your vids and I have squeed about them in the various threads. :-)

These sentiments come at a good time. I am full of vidding angst at the moment and not feeling that bouncy at all. But I will once I get past the latest challenge. And I will get past it. We have to be so . . . stubborn about learning. It's the only way.

Thanks again!

I have the best list for vidding help and inspiration too. :-)

This is the most awesomely warm fuzzy comment of loveliness. \o/ Thank you! you are way TOO kind about my vidding, but I do appreciate it, and even more I appreciate the talks we have about vidding--learning together is so much better than learning alone! And I love your comments about the others too. You should link to it or something to make sure the others see it. ;)
