Stop me from peeking!

Just how spoilery is that teaser that I'm seeing all around the place? I really.. REALLY want to peek.. A little tiny peek won't hurt will it?!

While I'm here.... I just HAVE TO rec some vids that zimshan recced to me recently. It was in relation to the bad vid post I made a few weeks ago. Though this isn't a "bad vid" by any means... It's the crackiest, most amazing vid I think I've ever seen.

If you haven't seen it I URGE you to check it out. It's brilliantly made and... my God.. the idea. (It's Smallville, but you don't need to know the show at all). Honestly. Go watch! You won't be disappointed. (it's slash but try not to let that put you off either (if you're not into slash) ... it's friggin' hilarious. And kinda O_o)

Go here -> I Swear by dualbunny

I also highly recommend this "bad vid" (of the Lord King Bad Vid variety). It's a Merlin vid but, again, you don't need to know the show to watch it. Again slash, but crackish so pretty harmless.

It's here -> Alone by sisabet

This is a perfect example of a LKBV. As in it's done in complete sincerity, it's well made but the idea is "horrific". And in being so quite hilarious.

Watch, watch. So much fun.

"I swear" is a vid of pure beauty. It should totally be used as the vid to show people when explaining what vidding is!

As to that Supernatural teaser? Is that the web clip thing? I watched it and I don't think it's all that spoilery. Pretty sure it's a clip that is from the first five minutes of the episode and doesn't contain anything that you couldn't all ready guess. I think...

Yes. Watching that opened my eyes to the beauty of vidding. Truly transformative.

I've seen the clip posted as a YT embed, so I'm not sure if it's the web clip thing. Probably. I suspected it would be from the beginning.....hmm... probably won't be hurt to peek.

I watched it not knowing what was going to happen. Even though zimshan recced it to me as "Catbaby" I didn't twig. So when it happened I just could not believe my eyes. Then I looked at the whole structure of the vid and realised just how damn good it was.

I imagine seeing it live would have been incredible. What a great to reaction to get on a vid also. It must have been very rewarding for the vidders (I wasn't sure if this was a collab?).

And yes! Unicorns! Damn me if I wouldn't love to make a SPN vid with a unicorn in it. :D :D

17th-Sep-2011 11:02 am (UTC)
Oh is it?! Is it!?! Arghh..... that's not stopping me from watching.... My resolve is grumbling...

The vid isn't horribly spoilery it just confirms what we already suspected and knew. It's like the first 1 minute of the season 7 premiere nothing really new on information at all in my opinion
17th-Sep-2011 11:31 pm (UTC)
Ok. Good. I still haven't checked it out but I think I will have to.
18th-Sep-2011 10:46 pm (UTC)
Heehee. Glad to have enabled. ;)

Hee... oh man... the discussion that came out of posting those vids../o\ Unicorns indeed.

LOL! Thanks for those links (I'm still catching up on posts I was too scared to read before episode 1)

The catbaby -kitteh was high-larious, but also incredibly well done in the way it's so intensely serious to begin with and then just keeps going and plunging off a cliff! See, this is why I've never tried to touch a slash vid for this fandom, I'm terrified I'd do the same thing and NOT NOTICE!! Or do the totally opposite and end up poking fun at something in horrible bad taste...

It's such a fine line isn't it? Flaming Nora I've made some atrociously bad vids in my time, looking back at some of them I want to salt and burn them to put myself out of my misery and some days I itch to hit the delete key on a few! I hope I've learnt a lot and I know I'm much happier looking back on the later vids - however I still kind of want to re-edit everything with new footage and new ideas, but that's not the point really is it? It's knowing and judging where that line is and not just for me as a vidder either, but for viewers too.

Setting out to make a "bad" vid, whether it's from a technical stand point or an over the top dramatic emotional one, is an art form in itself.
