Festivids recs!

It's festivid time and I'm having a ball working my way through them and can't wait for the reveals so I can download all my fans. The talents of the vidders is certainly taking my mind off things.

Here's a few recs to get you going -

Ballroom Blitz - Ghostbusters.

Doomsday - Independence Day

Bells, books and candles - Ladyhawke

We got the beat - Hello Dolly.

In spite of ourselves - Raising Hope.

This is just scratching the surface of the choices available. The festivid master list is here Check it out for lots of unexpected treats.


Still learning

Thanks to all my lovely flisters(the bloody auto correct keeps changing it to flusters) for their help with Photoshop. I'm plugging away and hopefully will soon be able to make some decent icons. But now my quest to actually know a bit about the new programs on the work Macs continues and I am now toying with Adobe Premiere CS5.5.

What better way to practise than trying making a fan vid? Anyway I have some downloaded TV eps in .avi format and actually a couple of ideas! And I have a couple of questions -

Do I need to use a clipping program as well?


Do I need to import a codec converter?

Any help or links to Premiere for dummies are greatly appreciated! :D

Snowflake challenge - day two

Day 2

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

I have so many favourites of all sorts. I'm going to post 3 recs of 3 different types of fan works. (OMG how hard is it to just pick 3???)


Come on by charmax is a Firefly ensemble piece that is just awesome. I love the song and the inclusion of Serenity throughout is awesome. The editing is so great. This is the vidding I aspire to one day.

The weight of us by giandujakiss was a Festivid vid from last year and I just love it. Rebel without a cause is the source and the vidder just captures the feeling of all the characters in the movie effortlessly. It would actually make a great trailer or introduction to James Dean and his iconic movies.

Space girl also by charmax this is a multi-fandom vid which celebrates women in Science fiction movies and TV and it is awesome.


Don't let go by [Bad username: dire borne]. Merlin/Arthur. I think the blending and awesome manic is gorgeous.

Dr McCoy's flowchart for dealing with frequent sexual harassment by pouf. Kirk/McCoy. I love the humour!

Alex O'Loughlin by Jojemo at deviant art.


Sooooo hard to choose

Five times Mary suspected Holmes and Watson were more than friends and one time she knew it to be so. by paperclipbitch. Holmes/Watson of the RDJ Sherlock incarnation. I probably recced this on my journal before, but I love it the glimpse of the two men from Mary Watson's POV and think you would too.

Five times Jayne convinced Mal to have sex with him by ana_grrl. Firefly, Jayne/Mal. Really I should just rec everything ana_grrl ever wrote, cause I loved them all. But for now... this fic is awesome in how she captures Jayne and Mal just right and provides the readers with a dose of humour along the way.

Not your mother's Alma Mater? by smittywing. Thor 2011, Darcy/Hawkeye. I have very little knowledge of this incarnation of the Marvel universe, but it doesn't matter with this story. I just love how feisty and 'normal' Darcy is and how she manages to fit in just fine with all the Secret Agents and Super heroes she suddenly is thrown into contact with.


Snowflake challenge - day one

I like this idea and though I may not post for every challenge hope to do a few at least.

Today's challenge In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Drop a link to your post in the comments.

Three related dribbles amounting to about 600 words total - so I'm counting this as one :D Wiles, Wiley and Wiliness. Firefly, Mal/Jayne. I felt light when I wrote these and think they show they love I had for writing drabbles.

All the things that led to us and the sequel As the sparks fly upward. Chuck, Casey/Chuck. Not long fics, they started me writing in second person POV and I've never really escaped it :D

Ain't leaving. Firefly, Jayne/Kaylee. My OTP in a sad place that periodically I want to go back and clean up, but always ultimately leave it how it is.


Asking for flist help again!

Using a Mac is like learning a new language! But I tell you, when I have money, I'll be buying one for myself. I'm totally converted.

But to my question -

How on earth do I save pics from pic spams etc? I figure making icons is a great way to learn Photoshop, but I need pics to do that with.

Probably it's something really simple :D
