We've been asked about the schedule for the vid party, so here's the plan for the big night.

9pm-10pm "Vids with a message"
[personal profile] futuransky will host an introductory vid-viewing session, looking at how fans use vids to tell stories and convey messages. If you're unfamiliar with fanvids, this will help you get your bearings. Don't miss the panel at 4pm Saturday to discuss these vids in greater depth!

11pm-midnight "Premieres"
Come see vids created especially for Wiscon. These vids have never been shown or posted online before our show! We've encouraged fanvid creators to make us vids that touch on Wiscon's feminist SF themes, so you can expect a number of fascinating vids in this session. We'll also be showing some "nearly new" vids (released since the start of 2011) that you might not have seen yet.

midnight-1am "Singalong Vids"
An hour of vids specially selected for their sing-along-ability. Bring your best singing voice! All these vids will have subtitles, so if you find it easier to watch vids with the lyrics on screen for any reason, this is also a great time to swing by and see what's on offer.

From 10pm-11pm, and from 1am til close (sometime around 2am, we think) we'll be showing a selection of vids that don't fit any of the above categories.

Ass-covering disclaimer: this schedule is subject to change. We'll post the final schedule closer to the party.

That is all.

Can't wait to start making my playlist! I should put up a post requesting nominations here when I will have time to actually watch any nominated vids I haven't seen.

Arrrrgh, but I want to seeeeee it. And the paaaanel. (When I use too many letters, it's because I'm whining). Maybe you should take pity and do a bit of a write up to post after the con. :D?

Any nominations for a feministy intro to vidding??

Oh yes, definitely that––such a WisCon-y vid! I will have a sit down and think about it and solicit nominations probably after a deadline I have on April 26, but let me know if anything occurs to you before then!

(Sadly though, or not, many of my recs are still BSG-related, as it's still where I cut my vidding teeth and watched ALL THE VIDS. Plus, there were so many. Sorry for monotony and probably repeating stuff you know!)

My Medea by yunitsa (Whedonverse) for astonishing critical clarity, and spot-on criticism of sources often (simplistically) held up as feminist, http://yunitsa.livejournal.com/252196.html

I would try REALLY hard to convince you to show your own Merlin vid for seamless subversion/reclamation of a problematic source, and if you refused, I would make someone overrule you

You know this, but Hera Has Six Mommies by tallulah71, http://tallulah71.livejournal.com/27811.html, for alternative and queer and woman-centric families and important networks (stupid ending notwithstanding)

I think I also have to suggest Vogue by luminosity, 300 and all, http://sockkpuppett.livejournal.com/442646.html, for deconstruction of misogynistic and homophobic hyper-masculinity and racism, though other people seemed to find this vid just hilarious for objectifying boys so idk (it IS hilarious too, of course)

I also really strongly think that vids like Jolene by nicole_anell, http://nicole-anell.livejournal.com/84062.html, and Ghosts by beccatoria, http://beccatoria.livejournal.com/53389.html, should be considered explicitly feminist, for telling a clear and cohesive narrative for a neglected female character, but those are obviously really context-dependent and require show discussion and knowledge. (And then that makes me feel bad for not recommending a whole host of good character study or femslash vids for a show like TSCC, or other shows I love with awesome ladies, that didn't actually neglect female characters and thus didn't require reclaiming/retelling vids but do have a lot of good character vids, and then I start to ramble about how much simply vidding women is a feminist act in fandom...)

Finally, you know this too, but Babies by aycheb (BSG), http://aycheb.livejournal.com/39020.html, for evolutionary space porn (and interesting things to say about reproduction...) for the Wiscon audience :D

I'm so glad y'all are doing another vid party! I loved the one last year and stayed till it was over (which I was not even expecting to do!). Singing along to the Don't Stop Believin' Star Trek vid with a room full of fangirls all at the top of our lungs was a wonderful experience and a highlight of the con for me, so I'm particularly glad you're doing a whole hour of singalong vids this time around!
