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!

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!

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!

Here are the premieres and all the playlists from the WisCon 38 Vid Party! See this handout for our warnings policy and warnings information for all vids.

The vid party programming is largely made up of what attendees and interested folks submit, which we think makes the party pretty fun and special. So enormous thanks to all the vidders who submitted premieres and all the curators who submitted playlists, and to all the volunteers who helped us subtitle the show! If you enjoy the vids, please follow the links to the vidders' journals/sites and let them know!
