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!

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.
