Finally, but most importantly, PLEASE leave our amazing vidders comments! They like to hear things from you all, even if it's just a "Yay! I liked this!" and we would not have anything to party about without them. <3 <3 <#

We have vids ready and waiting for your subtitling services. Most importantly, subtitles help make our Vid Show accessible so more folks can enjoy Vid Party, but the added bonus is that subtitles also turn each vid into an opportunity for Sing Along.

If you're ready to help, just leave a comment!

[subtitle crew] "I would like to write the words that go here and transcribe the audio that accompanies the pictures behind me"

Or just, yknow, "I'M IN!"

Thanks so much!

Dear VIDDERS, aka "friends of the many timelines,"

A few announcements...


All vidders who completed an interest form should have received an email check-in about the upcoming Premieres deadline. If you did not, we do not have the right email address for you or we did not receive your form.

If you have not completed the interest form and you are planning to submit a Premiere at our May 4th Premiering vids deadline (SUBMISSION FORM IS HERE), please email us at vidparty[dot]wiscon[at] ASAP so that we can anticipate the added screening time! Please let us know the estimated length of your vid, fandom, song, summary, etc.


As you may have seen, the digital release date for Black Panther was announced (May 8), and it raised some questions (we all really love Black Panther) for our programming process since Premieres are due May 4th.

Frankly, this is a kind of risky idea for our programming process, but (Black Panther!) we know several folks who were interested in making a Black Panther premiere.

If you want to make a Black Panther premiere, you will need to let us know the estimated length, vid audio, and description (For example, "this vid is about how Shuri is brilliant and perfect") by May 4th, aka the regular premieres deadline. Black Panther premieres with accompanying subtitles (srt files) are due by 11:59pm CST on May 22nd.

Your calendar should look like this:

April = Vid Party Premiere
May 4 = Vid Party Premiere Due Date
May 5 = create timeline and import song for Black Panther vid
May 8 = download Black Panther and start vidding
May 22 = Black Panther Premiere Due Date

Again, if you have any questions, please email us at vidparty[dot]wiscon[at]

Happy vidding!

Are you ready to go steady with some vids? For 5 hours? For 5 minutes? For moments of moving images that contain the highs and lows of a lifetime of feelings? Is bearing witness to such immensity utopian or dystopian? Or is the thread between the two that thin...

We are *so* eager to get this party started and this year we have a lot of announcements and a lot of new exciting changes that we think you’ll all be excited about as well. To this end, please expect more posts throughout the next several months than usual.

Welcome [personal profile] eruthros!!! We are delighted to announce that [personal profile] eruthros has joined our merry band of Vid Party Crew. [personal profile] eruthros will be collaborating with me on programming, updating our warnings distribution methods, and the other dozens of activities.



Last year, we gave curators the option to have the Vid Party crew notify vidders who have vids featured in playlists. We feel like this change was largely successful as it meant playlist creators no longer had to negotiate communicating Vid Party policy or screening dynamics and we could ensure that all vidders were notified.

This year the Vid Party crew will notify ALL vidders of the vids featured in ALL playlists. Curators do not need to notify vidders themselves.

To that end, Playlists will be due Saturday, April 21st.

This will allow us to screen playlists, notify vidders early, and send subtitle assignments with plenty of time to make course corrections if necessary.


We are also offering playlist creators the opportunity to solicit premiering vids (or vid suggestions!) for their playlists. Last year we had several premieres within playlists and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Placement of Premiering vids within playlists would be a conversation between the playlist curator and the Vid Party Crew.

Vidders who submit premiering vids will have an opportunity in the Google Forms to communicate which playlists (Premiering, Themed Premiering, Curated, Sing Along, etc.) they think their vid is best suited for.

Based on discussion with several frequent playlist curators already, we anticipate that some playlist curators will solicit premieres and others will not.


RESIST [personal profile] sasha_feather open to premieres
Vidding the Book [personal profile] futuransky open to premieres
Theme TBD [personal profile] thingswithwings open to premieres (theme will be announced)
Tori Amos [personal profile] kiki_miserychic open to premieres
Identity [personal profile] magnetgirl open to premieres

Foremothers [personal profile] cyborganize closed to premieres




Last year we had an incredible response to our call for premieres. We were truly blown away by the fantastic array of premiering vids and the sheer number. At previous Vid Parties, we screened as few as 4 premieres and as of last year, as many as 19! Even with 5 hours of programming, there is a wide gulf between 4 vids and 19 vids.

For planning purposes, it would be incredibly useful to have a sense of what vids folks are working on and the time we should allocate to premieres.

Please note -- completing our form is not a firm commitment. If you sign up for a premiere and then do not have it ready, you won’t “default” or face any other consequence. This is simply a tool to help the programming team better anticipate the potential time commitment of incoming vids.

Within this form, you will also have an opportunity to suggest which playlists your vid may be well-suited for. We wanted to include the option for vidders to suggest alternate playlist fits because people responded so positively to the inclusion of premieres in themed playlists and (possibly) sing along. However, please note: most vids will appear in the premieres shows.

Determining which playlist a vid will appear on will be a programming decision subject to other factors: which fandoms are already included in that playlist? what is the flow of the playlist? How does this work for timing breaks? Etc. Vid Party Crew and the playlist curators will decide this together and notify premiering vidders.

If you are considering submitting a vid to WisCon Vid Party, please complete this form by April 13th.

Final vid submissions are due May 4th. Submit your vid here.

Let me just add that we LOVE receiving premieres from regular WisCon vidders, vidders new to WisCon, and especially, brand new vidders. We have a really great audience that loves to explore new work and new perspectives.

I love the Vid Party and I am one of the people who runs the Tiptree Auction, and I'm wondering how I can usefully tie these loves together.

Context: The James Tiptree, Jr. Literary Award encourages the exploration & expansion of gender, and holds a fundraising auction at WisCon each year -- usually the same night as, but earlier than and only partially overlapping with, the Vid Party. I'm the auctioneer.

We're seeking donations of objects to be auctioned -- handcrafts, books, memorabilia, games, and art, especially with scifi/fantasy or feminist elements, are welcome. And I would personally love to get some donations this year of types I haven't yet seen, such as DVDs or CDs of feminist media.

But I have the seeds of a few other ideas:

  • If any vidders would like to contribute art commissions, we could do what other fanvidding auctions do, e.g., the winning bidder gets to suggest what they like and you make a custom vid for them (you can specify constraints like fandoms, genres, length, deadline, etc.).
  • If any of you own physical media you despise, I could potentially raise money by promising to destroy it, live, onstage. In 2016 the audience paid me something like USD$130 to take a hammer and smash a "Pilates for Weight Loss" DVD.
  • There'll be little breaks during the auction to let people check out the silent auction table, go to the restroom, etc. If any of you can recommend funny vids about auctions, money, consumer culture, or capitalism, I'd like to see whether we could play one or two during one of those breaks.

Welcome back from Vid Party! Have you slept? I bet you could still sleep some more. But I know what you reaaaaaalllly want to do is watch ALL of the vids again and leave comments for our lovely vidders who premiered vids.

And then after that, maybe try a playlist or two, or three, or eleven...

Vid Party had a big year this year. Here are just a few things that made us say "WOW!":

- First year with a playlist for a Guest of Honor -- with 2(!) premieres!
- First year in the BIG room at WisCon, allowing far more people to attend than ever before

As always, we had a fully subtitled show. You can download subtitles here. Thank you to [personal profile] runawaynun, [personal profile] violace, [personal profile] oyceter, and [personal profile] seekingferret and all of the vidders who subtitled their own vids.

We also had a phenomenal poster thanks to [personal profile] jackshoegazer

Special thanks to our entire Vid Party crew -- fans/viewers, vidders, playlist makers, subtitlers, warnings screeners, poster-makers, ConCom ambassadors, ConCom, SF3, and the Concourse.

... and now, please enjoy our show!

Have some warnings!

A sneak peak at our playlist....

And hang tight because Vid Party starts at 9pm in Capital/Wisconsin (yup! the big room!)

We've got a Kelly Sue DeConnick playlist, *19* Premieres, dazzling curated playlists, and Sing Along vids waiting for your voices.

See you soon!

Tell me your dreams. What does your heart yearn to sing in a room full of friends, not-yet-friends, acquaintances, lovers, and ex-lovers? What vids are just too much fun to NOT share by singing at the top of our lungs while possibly dancing around the room?

We are going to do our darnedest to assemble your suggestions into two wondrous Sing Along playlists, but please note that:

1. Each of these playlists has limited space

2. Each playlist will necessarily be a mix of classics and new-to-Sing-Along vids

3. Depending on how popular this activity is... not every suggestion may make it on a Sing Along playlist :(((

But we are going to TRY! to make it all work! for the party! for the jam! for your generosity! and for the SQUEEEEEEE <3 <3 <3

So please, share with us: which vid do we play every year that we must, we MUST play for you this year? which vid have we never played at Sing Along that you would love to see AND HEAR?

And y'know, comments are screened, so feel free to tell us your deepest hopes and dreams and fears for Vid Party and the future at large. Bonus!points if you tell us which dystopia you believe we are living in!

HELLO TO ALL WHO MAKE THIS MARVELOUS PARTY HAPPEN EACH AND EVERY YEAR. You're beautiful. We've missed you! It's nice to be back in touch. Been watching many vids? or were you waiting for this shindig of ours? Well, it is that season once again!

Vidders gotta vid.

Subtitlers gotta subtitle.

Playlist makers gotta... make... playlists.

and we've gotta rally! So everything comes together in time for the poster, the playlists, the warnings, the set-up, the online posting, and all the rest. If I could turn back time... I would have reminded you earlier. Of course, I know many of you already have vids in progress, playlists completed, and excitement percolating.

We're trying a couple of new things this year, so please pay special attention to items 1, 4, and 5!

1. Here's the first new thing we're trying: Call for Premieres for a Kelly Sue DeConnick playlist Kelly Sue DeConnick is a Guest of Honor at this year's WisCon. This means for the first time ever? yeah, ever! we have a Guest of Honor who writes for primarily visual mediums. This makes that work much more readily VID-able. Here are some suggestions of source you may want to vid: Captain Marvel, Pretty Deadly, Bitch Planet, that one episode of Emerald City*, and dozens of other stories you already know and love.

*it's television! moving images! take note those of you who do not feel ready to vid comics...although I promise you can totally vid comics!!

2. What about Premieres with other subjects or source material? We want ALL of your Premieres!. Wondering what kind of vids premiere at WisCon?
Read more about our Call for Premieres here. )

Deadline for Premiering Vids: Sunday, May 14th, 2017, 11:59pm CST

If you're planning to submit a premiere vid, we'd love for you to let us know as soon as you can so we can get a sense of how long our Premieres show will be. If you need flexibility with this deadline, please contact us at vidparty.wiscon[at] and we can discuss.

Read more about how to submit your Premiere vid here

3. We are also calling for themed playlists!. We want as many people as possible to be involved in the programming for the party, and we prefer shorter blocks of programming rather than long vidshows. So, just like last year, we would like to invite you to curate a themed vid playlist (i.e. a short/mini vid show) that's 10-25 minutes in length, or 3-6ish vids long, to play at the party. Curators choose a theme and pick 3-6ish vids that fit the theme. If you're attending WisCon, you can introduce your playlist with a description of your theme (if you want!); if you aren't attending, you can write a little introduction and we will read it for you.
Read more about our Call for Playlists here. )

Deadline for Playlists: Sunday, April 30th, 11:59pm CST.

PLEASE NOTE: this is a full 2 weeks earlier than the deadline for premieres, as it takes an extraordinary amount of time to subtitle each playlist, screen for warnings, program playlists, create programs, warning sheets, etc. etc. etc.

For planning purposes, please let us know by commenting below or emailing vidparty.wiscon at if you are planning to create a playlist. It is particularly helpful if you could let us know your playlist theme as it will assist our programming process.

4. Last year we received a lot of positive feedback on running two separate SING ALONG playlists: one for those with an early bedtime and one for those who party late. We will be repeating that format again this year (twice the Sing Along vids!), and we want your help!

Each year our Sing Along playlists have a set number of "classic" Sing Along vids and a set number of new-to-Sing-Along vids. We would like your input on vids you'd like to see -- classic or new -- at this year's Sing Along(s)! Submit your Sing-Along vid ideas at this post with screened comments.

It should be noted that if we have an overwhelming response, time may not permit us to include every vid suggestion. We will do our best to make sure one of your suggestions makes it in and we will work hard to include as many suggested vids as possible, in Sing Along playlists or elsewhere in the Vid Party.

5. And of course, these vids will not subtitle themselves! We need SUBTITLE CREW! And subtitle crews deserve VID LOVE! For every vid you subtitle, you will get a fun internet surprise (in the form of a link). It's like a Kinder egg but with less chocolate and more pixels! :D

We will also be scheduling a "subtitling blitz" weekend for May 6-7. Stay tuned for details as we get closer to the event.

Please comment here to sign up for Premieres, Playlists, and Subtitles.

Hello our lovely, mysterious, enchanting, roguish, and righteous vidders. How are you? Did you miss us like we miss you? We want you....r vids! Please give us your vids! We need them. For breathing. Because in this dystopia I am inventing in this very moment to convey our desperate need and desire for your vids--in this dystopia here, the Capitalist Media Machine (CMM) has implanted a neurotransmitter that limits how we read and watch the media they create. The ONLY WAY to unprogram our minds and fight for the revolution is by vidding and watching the vids of other vidders, thereby linking our unique subjective experiences, expanding our consciousness, inspiring empathy, and ultimately (ultimately) saving the universe from CMM mind control™.

What kind of vids do we want?

We welcome all fanvids in all genres and from all traditions of fannish video production, so long as they have some connection to WisCon's focus on feminism and science fiction. WisCon defines feminism broadly, and we're interested in vids that engage with any aspect of gender, sexuality, race, disability, and/or class. We don’t want definitions to limit you; if you’re interested in WisCon’s themes and consider your vid to engage with these ideas, we’d love to have it at WisCon. We consider vid theme to be as relevant as source genre.

And of this year's WisCon we have an EXTRA SPECIAL opportunity for vidders: submitting a vid using source from a Kelly Sue DeConnick story for our Kelly Sue DeConnick playlist! Read more about this awesome playlist of premieres, nearly new, and classic vids here or here

Each year we have some incredible premieres by experienced and newbie vidders. We would love to see your work at this year’s Vid Party!

In case you haven't heard: Kelly Sue DeConnick will be a Guest of Honor at next year's WisCon!

This also means we have a Guest of Honor whose work is primarily a visual text and that means many opportunities to vid. In fact, [personal profile] garrideb submitted a Pretty Deadly vid to our Premieres show just the Vid Party before last.

To celebrate Kelly Sue DeConnick, we would very much like to have a playlist of vids focused exclusively on her work. This playlist would include previously screened vids, new non-premiering vids, and premieres.

While WisCon 41 is many, many months away, I bring this to your attention because two fandoms nominated at Festivids this year are Kelly Sue DeConnick fandoms: Bitch Planet and Captain Marvel (vol 7+8).

If you signed up for Festivids, but you have not yet offered to make a vid for Bitch Planet or Captain Marvel, please consider including these two fandoms? :D

If you have not signed up for Festivids, it is a fantastically supportive community to make a vid and you should try it!

Even if you choose not can always make a treat for Festivids!

And it goes without saying, you could always make a PREMIERE for the super-special Kelly Sue DeConnick playlist.

As promised, this is your (incredibly belated) post with this year's full list of Premieres and playlists. I apologize for the unanticipated delay.

We hope everyone enjoyed the show! If you missed any of it, treat yourself to the links below. We would love if you would leave comments for the vidders who made vids that gave you the feels, that made you think, or that made you want to try watching (or reading) something new. All of the vids this year were incredible and we can't thank you all enough for making Vid Party possible.

Shout Outs Thank you to everyone who premiered a vid, curated a playlist, subtitled our show, set-up the screening room, helped break-down the screening room, posted posters, MADE our poster -- hey there Jeremy! -- and attended our show.

Subtitles were provided by the respective vidders, or generously scripted by our amazing Subtitle Squad: [personal profile] runawaynun, [personal profile] violace, and [personal profile] seekingferret. BIG THANKS for subtitling our entire show (!)

You can download all subtitles here. Subtitles are grouped into easy to navigate playlist folders.

It's never too late to learn how to make vids! --because the only timeline that counts is the one in your video editor. As a follow-up to the absolutely amazing How-to-Vid panel moderated and run by [personal profile] thuviaptarth, there will be posts forthcoming with links and resources. So stay tuned!

Just a reminder: that tiny chaotic bundle of clips and music, bells and whistles, tentacles and feels, known as a PREMIERING VID is due tomorrow!

If you need an extension, that's OK! Just send me an email at:


Let me know: the length of your vid, the fandom, and your song choice. For those vidders seeking extensions, the deadline will be Sunday, May 22nd. That said, it is important you email me so I know you are still planning to submit.

I'm going to cut to the chase here: we have a LOT of vids still in need of subtitling. Please consider taking on 1, 2, 3 or more vids to subtitle. It really makes a big difference for folks when Vid Party is fully subtitled. We are NOT on track for a fully subtitled Vid Party.


Thank you!!!

P.S. Premieres are due tomorrow. If you need an extension for your premiering vid, email me at: vidparty[dot]wiscon[at]gmail[dot]com

Subtitle Squad! For the last two years we have attempted to screen a fully subtitled Vid Party, and you all have come through with incredible subtitling heroics.

I am happy to announce that we have a couple of playlists! And I anticipate more coming in very soon...

Do you have the srt to help make Vid Party more accessible?

If you are willing to help make subtitles, please reply here with a good email to contact you (comments are screened) and I will send you a playlist to subtitle! Try subtitling one vid a day and we'll be all set for the party, a week from Saturday. We would prefer folks to sign on for a full playlist (4-7 vids), but if you can only take on 1,2 or 3, we'd still appreciate the help.


p.s. we have excellent tutorials on making subtitle files here.

I am going to be cliché and cry into the interwebs -- How is it May?! And, how is it already time to start tying this epic program together?

And yet it is. Here are your reminders and updates:

PLAYLISTS - Playlists are DUE THIS FRIDAY, May 6th. Thus far, I have received only 2 playlists. We also still need an AMV playlist sign-up; if anyone is willing to put that together please comment below.

If you need an extension, email me at vidparty[dot]wiscon[at]gmail[dot]com.

NOTIFYING VIDDERS - I'd like to provide a belated clarification on notifying vidders.

1. Make an effort to notify using the means available--email, tumblr, etc.

2. All vids are eligible to be screened WITHOUT explicit permission if they are publicly available for streaming or download online.

3. Vids that are not available for streaming or download by the author, we try to exhaust all avenues of seeking permission and at last resort, we make a judgment call on how public it is for screening. Even if we decide that a vid is public (e.g. vids well-known and frequently discussed in fannish circles), we will never upload it.

4. A vid that is only available behind a friends-lock is (for our purposes) not publicly available.

5. MOST IMPORTANTLY: Submit playlists even if you were unable to reach a vidder. If that is the case, simply let us know which vidders you were unable to reach.

More updates on subtitle committee, sing-a-long, etc. coming soon!

Hear ye! Hear ye! My name is metatxt supersplice, and I present "Free Thoughts on the Programming of the WisCon Vid Party!"

*record scratch*

(whispers)...oh Hamilton isn't here to make a case for the VID-OLUTION? *sigh* fine, I guess this part can wait until next time...


We want as many people as possible to be involved in the programming for the party, and we prefer shorter blocks of programming rather than long vidshows. So, just like last year, we would like to invite you to curate a themed vid playlist (i.e. a short/mini vid show) that's 10-25 minutes in length, or 3-6ish vids long, to play at the party. Curators choose a theme and pick 3-6ish vids that fit the theme. If you're attending WisCon, you can introduce your playlist with a description of your theme (if you want!); if you aren't attending, you can write a little introduction and we will read it for you.

Here’s a list of playlists from previous years if you want to get an idea of how this has worked in the past.

For planning purposes, please let us know by commenting below or emailing vidparty.wiscon at if you are planning to create a playlist.

More information on themes and curating )

We would like to gather playlists as soon as possible. Please get them to us by Friday May 6th at the latest! Email your playlist info to vidparty.wiscon at

Please note: this deadline is 10 days earlier than Premieres!

And once more, let us know in the comments below or by email if you are planning to curate a playlist!

Also feel free to comment below or contact us if you want to toss around potential ideas, suggest themes that other people might want to curate (if you don’t want to create the playlist yourself), or chat about vids that would be great to see at Wiscon!
