Vidukon is GO!!  
Hooray!! Vidukon (UK vidding convention) is going to happen again, 9-10 April 2011, in Cardiff. \o/ Thanks to the determination of [personal profile] buffyann and some brilliant on-the-ground help by [personal profile] beccatoria and [profile] brokenmnemonic we have a hotel and we have PLANS. It is very exciting!

Why am I organising a vidding convention in the UK? Well, apart from being really nice and supportive (:p) I am going to be there anyway next year for family weddings and babies and what not. And now I get to go to my second vidding con in less than a year as well! \o/

Follow [personal profile] vidukon (on LJ) or [community profile] vidukon_cardiff (on DW) for details/updates. Also we are looking for volunteers and will be looking for premiering vids.

I am very excited! Also excitement: next week I'm going to Revise: The Art and Science of Contemporary Remix Cultures, organised by [profile] nushanakt. Program looks GREAT! If I can get organised I will report on interesting things! :D

So you get to go to the UK one as well? Please refer to my avatar.


OK I'm done sulking now! :)

I won't be able to make the Revise thing. I understand the fan-vid component isn't a huge section so its kinda hard to justify flying down for it (got some job opportunities now anyway). Look forward to reading your write up though!

I know!! I SUCK!!

Yeah, I figured you would not be able to make Revise... but yay job opps! I was wondering how that was going! :) Also, we might be going back to Sunset Sounds next year again (my bf was quite taken with it! and his work office is in Brizzie now so he may even be able to combine with work trip), so some time January I may be in Brisbane? Possibly! Would be great to meet up again!

Yeah if you are in town again, then definitely we should catch up! :)

Alas, I can't make it, but I expected that given my school schedule.

The DW comm is not working for me?

Oh, that's a pity! And, er, yes, that would be me being dyslexic with the comm name. Other way round! Should be fixed now!

Oh I wish you were going. :(

Can't wait for this, Bop!

Me neither! I am so excited about meeting you and other UK/European vidders! I can't believe how lucky I'm going to be to meet so many of my vidding idols in one year!!

THe LJ comm is showing up as a deleted dreamwidth journal at the moment? Or is it just too early in the mornign for me to be web-browsing? ;)

ETA: all of the journal names appear to point to dreamwidth journals. I don't exist on dreamwidth, apparently... this could cause me to have an existential crisis!

It's because I'm crossposting. You just have to use the LJ name with LJ. :) And the DW name with DW. :)

Ohh, cool! Yes, I'm excited about Revise! I've been in such a haze of work it's going to be lovely to have a few days off and away from home (out of my HOUSE! LOL!) for a while. And yeah, I am pretty much just WILLING this all to happen right now... clients still owe me oodles of dollars. :/ But as long as they pay up by April I should be cool.
