Hello ! Thank you so much for making me a vid :D I can't wait to watch it. Regarding the music : I'm not really picky, and anyway, I like to trust the vidder's choice. Sorry, that's not really helpful! I'm sure I'll like whatever you come up with.

Borrowing from my previous letters : on the technical side of things, I love vids that pay attention to movement and beat work, and find parallels/contrasts interesting. Effects (flashes, colors, etc.) are okay, but I prefer when they're used sparingly - I feel like they tend to detract from the substance of the vid otherwise. I tend to gravitate towards happy/uplifting vids, but if you want to go for melancholy, angsty or critical of the source that's all good as well ! I always have a soft spot for the ladies, and their relationships (femslash or friendship, both are great).

Ghostbusters (2016) [Movie]
This movie was a delight - I love all the characters, so feel free to do what you want. 

The Great British Bake Off [TV]

This is the first year I've watched GBBO (actually because of last year's festivids) - and it was a much needed ray of sunshine for me these last few weeks. I love the contestants, I love Mel and Sue, I love all the ridiculous stuff they cook. Anything will be fine :)

The Jungle Book (2016) [Movie]

I watched this movie kind of out of nostalgia (I liked the animated movie as a kid), and I was pleasantly surprised by it ! It has found families, an adorable kid, lots of great characters. And it's pretty too.

Luke Cage (2016) [TV]
Mmmmmh, something about Luke and Pop maybe ? Or Misty, or Claire, who are both badass and lovely - I like them by themselves, together (femslash ftw!), and their interactions with Luke are great too, so you can't go wrong. Shades and Mariah were fun, too. An ensemble vid would of course be amazing as well! I'd rather not get a Diamondback-centric vid, as I didn't find him very interesting. Cottonmouth either, although I found him somewhat more compelling.

Oceans's Eleven series (2001) [Movie]

I like heists and how fun these movies were, so I'd love something action-y.

One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961) [Movie]

I'll admit I haven't watched this in ages! Mostly I picked it out of nostalgia, haha. And it has DOGS, what more reason do you need ;) Focus on the puppies would be lovely, but I'm sure you could do an hilarious Cruella De Vil vid as well.

Pokémon GO [Game]
I'd love to see what kind of vid someone could do with that! I bet it could be pretty funny and/or heartwarming.The chase, the rare pokemon, the cute ones, the frustration at all the glitches and bugs... And all the freaking walking.

This was my Festivids assignment, for[personal profile] laura47 laura47, and I'm so glad I got a match for this fandom - it was one of my favorite movies this year, and I had a blast putting everything I loved about it in this vid

ETA August 2017 : the video on Youtube got blocked, so I uploaded it to Vimeo.

This was a very last minute Festivids treat for [personal profile] violace ! I had wanted to make it since I saw she wanted a Commander Lewis vid, but then I spent ages looking for a song, haha. Anyway, this was a lot of fun to make!

Hi ! Thank you for making me a vid ! I'm terribly sorry this wasn't up on time.

First of all, you might have noticed this is all terribly space-themed, I hope you can work with that - at first I just had Dark Matter, Jupiter Ascending and the Martian, and then I just decided to commit to the theme :P

While I'm on the subject, I keep thinking that a multifandom for The Martian, Apollo 13, and Europa Report would be awesome ? (with maybe a dash of Gravity too? although it's not in my requests or in the nominated fandoms). Anyway, I feel like there's a lot of interesting parallels (space exploration, of course, and the joys and dangers thereof, fixing things with SCIENCE, media / public attention, how humans are tiny in this universe but go out there anyway...) and honestly if nobody makes this vid I just might.

But that's just an idea, and I would be delighted by a vid of any of these on their own. Make what you feel like making and I'll be delighted to see it :)
Re: music, I'm not particularly picky, but to be honest particularly slow songs and rap are a harder sell. But feel free to chose whatever song feels right to you ! I love discovering new songs through vids.
Technically speaking, I love vids that pay attention to movement and beat work, and find parallels/contrasts interesting. Mood-wise, happy/uplifting vids are always something I love, but if you want to go for melancholy, angsty or critical of the source that's all good as well ! 


This is such a happy show - I love the characters, I love the songs, it's hilarious. Honestly I don't thing you can go wrong. Sid and Isabella are my favorites but anything would be delightful.

Jupiter Ascending

My cheesy space movie of the year ! I ended up shipping Caine and Jupiter (I was surprised), and I just love the gorgeous scenery and the epic over-the-top-ness of it all. I would love to see an ensemble vid, but I'd be also delighted by a Caine/Jupiter vid, or a Diomika Tsing vid (although I'm not sure there's enough footage, so maybe a ladies-centric vid), and I'm sure glorious things could be done with all the villainy melodrama of the Abrasax siblings.

The Martian

And... my funny/epic space movie of the year.  I was just delighted by this movie (and the Ares live youtube videos), and I liked the book as well. Science + space + humor was pretty much the perfect recipe. You can go serious, you can go funny, you can go disco,... Whether you want to focus on Mark, or the crew, or the NASA people, or everyone at once, I'll love it !

Treasure Planet

I really liked this movie as a kid, and I've rewatched it relatively recently, so it just popped up in my mind when I was looking one more space related fandom to my list. The story is engaging, the animation is great, and I love the streampunk atmosphere - there's plenty there to make a fun, adventure filled fanvid ;)

Europa Report
Yet another space movie, although this one is way more serious, mood-wise. But I like it for the sense of humanity exploring, pushing the boundaries, going far for discovery and science, despite the danger.

Apollo 13

A classic, and an oldie. Honestly I loved that movie because even if I knew how it ends, I was on the edge of my screen anyway. Engineers, pilots, winging it, fixing things and getting to go home ! I really love it. I'm just sad that the women have to stay home and worry themselves sick (maybe that would make a good angsty vid, huh.)

Dark Matter
Such an engaging show ! My favorite is probably Two, the leader, she's so competent, an intelligent badass who wants to protect her crew and tries to do the right thing. I would love a Two-centric vid tbh. And she has such great relationships with Five and the Android, so I would love to see that too. Speaking of which Five and the Android are both total darlings in their own way and I love them as well. And Four and Six both have compelling backstories and arcs, which would make interesting vids I believe, so really anyone would be great. Except One, sorry, he just grates on my nerves a bit. Except if it's an ensemble context, in which case feel free to include everyone.

Dear Festividder!

Thank you so much for making me a vid! I'm really looking forward to watching whatever you will create :D
I hope you will have fun!

All the fandom-specific stuff below is copy pasted straight from my requests.

As for my tastes in general, I tend to like fast paced vids, with use of movement, and attention to beat work, but slower works well too, as long as it's interesting visually in some way. Parallels and contrasts are always interesting to me!

I'm not very fond of color effects and the like if used too abundantly, and audio quotes tend to distract me from the vid if they're over the lyrics or if there are too many of them. But don't let me dissuade you from using those at all if that's your thing.

I like action and plot-centered vids, as well as character- or relationship-focused vids. 

You can't go wrong if you make me a happy vid, but anything else works as well!

I'm not picky (as well as, honestly, not very knowledgeable) when it comes to music, so go with your gut. Maybe stay away from really slow songs and very dissonant stuff though.

Brooklyn Nine Nine

Anything humorous or character centered would be great; I love the team as a whole so an ensemble vid would obviously please me, but I particularly like Amy, Rosa, Holt, and Terry.

How to Get Away with Murder

The show is still running so it's hard to be specific about things I'd like to see! 
The cinematography is great, I'd love to see what interesting things could be done with it.
An ensemble vid focusing on the different plot threads or the relationships that link all the characters would be great. So far I am particularly fond of Laurel and Wes, and Annalise is fascinating; I like Michaela and Bonnie as well. I wouldn't appreciate a vid centered exclusively on Connor as much (or worse, Asher, or Sam).

Legally Blonde

I actually haven't seen Legally Blonde 2, but the first movie was good fun and I loved it. Feel free to include both movies if you feel like it though!


I really loved this movie: it's gorgeous, and I loved the relationship between Maleficent and Aurora, so a vid about that would be awesome. I'd love to see something that'd showcase their love for each other, and their mutual saving of each other, or something more angsty about Maleficent starting to care and not wanting to, and then not managing to protect Aurora? As long as it's not all angst !


No particular thoughts about that one!

The Flash

What interests me the most in this show are the characters! Barry and Joe have a great familial bond that I'd love to see vidded. I also like Barry and Iris, with their friendship and their romantic potential. I also like Cisco and Caitlin, individually, together, or with Barry.
Something action-y could work too !
