WisCon 41 Vid Party Premieres and Playlists

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
- And...a RECORD-BREAKING 19 PREMIERES!

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!

VID PARTY IS TODAY YALL

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!

Sing Along! your vid suggestions wanted

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!

LET'S HAVE A VID PARTY! sign up for everything and anything here

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]gmail.com 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 gmail.com 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.

GIMME YER VIDSSSS! AKA: How to submit your premiering vid

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 course...at 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!

Kelly Sue DeConnick playlist

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 sign-up...you 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.

Want more vids? Check out VividCon!

If you had fun at [community profile] wiscon_vidparty, consider coming to VividCon, the annual fan-run vidding convention in Chicago, Illinois that's coming up on August 12-14, 2016 -- a whole weekend of watching vids, talking about vids, and dancing to vids!

PREMIERES AND PLAYLISTS FOR VID PARTY AT WISCON 40

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!

Halp! Subtitlers needed!

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.

PLEASE SIGN UP HERE

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

Does it have to be a committee? Perhaps it should be a squad...

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.

Thanks!

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

Countdown to Playlists...5...4...3...2...

HELLO PARTY PEOPLE!

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...


PLAYLIST PARTIERS AND WONDERERS OF WISCON!

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 gmail.com 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 gmail.com.

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!

VID PARTY CALL er... SING FOR PREMIERES!

Vidders and Viddees, Partiers and Partees, Enthusiasts of SF/F and Remix! We merrily present:

"The Party Of Our Lives"
a filk, sung to the tune of "The Story of Tonight"...

I may not fly to see the party!*
You may not drive to see the party!

But I will gladly vid the night!
But you should gladly vid the night!

And when the fangirls link our premieres…
And when the fangirls fave our premieres…

They’ll squee for shiny new delight!

Let’s have another vid tonight!
Let’s have another vid tonight!
Let’s have another vid tonight!

Raise a Vid to WisCon!
A Party that will live on year to year
No matter how chaotic
Raise a vid to the sing-a-long

Even if we get the lyrics wrong!
Singing the story of our night

Please vid a story for this night

Raise a glass to WisCon!
I think the show gets longer every year

Our squee will fight exhaustion

Let’s have another vid tonight!

Raise a vid to the Vid Party!

Even if this filk is weak
We’ll Vid the Party of our lives

Let’s Vid the Party of our lives
Raise a vid to WisCon
Let’s Vid the Party of our lives
Raise a vid to WisCon
Let’s Vid the Party of our lives
Please vid a story for —

WISCON VID PARTY

So that happened. I shamelessly (and poorly) filked the genius of Lin-Manuel Miranda… To further highlight his superior word mastery by botching his creation? No! To get your attention?! Well, yes. But also! Also, I know that you know, aliens, robots, mermaids, superheroes, dystopian monarchs, and revolutionaries all have a golden ticket to WisCon Vid Party. But, also invited are the feuding fathers of Broadway hip hop, the devoted fans of Cindi Mayweather, the codebreakers of Bletchley, the swooning eye-sex from film adaptations of classic 1950s lesbian pulp novels, and the yet-to-be-videographed stories from sf/f books. Let me further assure you still: this is not a comprehensive list.

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.

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!

And if your vid includes gorgeous shots of space, please send it our way. We are absolute trash for vids set in space. Some might even call us orbital debris.

PREMIERES ARE DUE MONDAY, MAY 16TH

If you’re looking for inspiration, please check out last year’s fantastic premieres!

* Uhhhhm, I’m totally flying to WisCon, but there’s not a lot of shared risk if I say, “hey I’m going to WisCon and also I lead our merry band of Vid Partiers. Please make a vid even if you’re not attending!” Also, there was the consideration of symmetry, yo.

WisCon 39 Vid Party Premieres and Playlists

PREMIERES! and playlists, as promised. We hope everyone enjoyed the show! And if you missed part of it, treat yourself to the vids below. This year’s premieres and playlists are absolutely STELLAR.

Thank You's

We’d like to thank this year’s Premiere-vidders [personal profile] brainwane, [personal profile] seekingferret, [personal profile] garrideb, and [personal profile] starlady for their amazing vids. A big thank you to all of the vidders we screened! Thanks to playlist curators and those who participated in the Sing Along poll. Extra big thanks to our set-up and break-down helpers: [personal profile] prozacpark, [personal profile] runawaynun, [personal profile] meganbmoore and [personal profile] lyssie.

I would personally like to thank the Vid Party crew [personal profile] were_duck, [personal profile] futuransky, and [personal profile] sasha_feather, as well as [personal profile] chaila and [personal profile] cyborganize for behind-the-scenes collaboration and help. And finally, we’d like to give a special shoutout to our subtitle volunteers, [personal profile] violace and [personal profile] angelikitten. If you’re looking at those two names thinking, “this show is quite long, how was everything subtitled with the help of only two volunteers?” a big reason is [personal profile] angelikitten who subtitled HALF of this year’s programming.

Subtitles

Speaking of subtitles—although many vidders provide SRT files along with their vids for download, this has been a relatively recent development and is not yet common practice. We are including the SRT files used during Vid Party for download alongside each listing. For subtitles to appear while the vid plays, you will need to give both files identical names (keeping their respective file extension) and store both files in the same folder. We recommend VLC for playback, but particularly if you are watching with subtitles.

Please note: not all vids are available for download. And a select few are not available for streaming or download (as noted below). The majority of vidders provide download links, which can be found on their Dreamwidth or Livejournal vid posts linked below. Most vids that available as streaming-only can be downloaded with the help of a 3rd party browser add-on.

Download ALL subtitle files. ◦ Individual playlist collections available below.

And finally — If you enjoy Vid Party, if you love Vid Party, it’s because of the vidders. Please take a minute to leave comments, particularly for those premiering vids!

VID PARTY PEOPLE -- IT IS ALMOST TIME!

Meet us in (our usual) Room 629, from 9pm to 2am.

Sing Along! now with Dreamwidth-style democracy

Hello Vid Fans!

In past years, Sing Along has been a playlist arranged by the Vid Party organizers. As you know, singing along to particular vids has become an expected and cherished tradition. And while we are still planning to mix things up a bit with new-to-Sing-Along vids, we don't want to miss out on your faves!

Vote for your favorite Vid Party Sing Along Classics! Suggest vids new to Sing Along!

Additionally, some folks have expressed an interest in a Sing Along playlist that occurs earlier in the evening, because: 1. early panels the next day, and 2. adulting often includes bedtimes. At the same time, some folks have requested multiple Sing Alongs!

Because Sing Along is so beloved, we wanted you to have the option to help shape this year's show. If all of these choices seem daunting or you'd rather be completely surprised, don't worry: we got this.

Subtitle Volunteers!

Hey party people!

Getting excited for WisCon Vid Party? We're 10 days away! WOOOOOOOO!!!! We have some pretty spectacular Premieres and Playlists all queued and ready to go. We just have ONE. MORE. THING--

SUBTITLES! Subtitles mean that more folks can enjoy Vid Party. We really wanted to get as many vids subtitled this year as possible, and that means we need volunteers!

If you have never made a subtitle file before -- thats ok! We have a couple excellent tutorials on how to make SRT files (subtitles) that we can play along with each vid.

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.

Thanks!

ETA: OK NOW COMMENTS ARE SCREENED. OOPS.
