Do you like Yuletide? I do and sign ups are now open. You have till November 12th.
Do you like vids? I do.
Do you like small fandoms. I do.
What happens when you throw all three into a fannish pot and stir briskly? festivids pops out. It's a fannish vid exchange inspired by Yuletide for small and rarely vidded fandoms.
Today is the last day to nominate a fandom and in going over the nominations list, there is plenty to be excited about.
Samples on the movie front: American Psycho, Brief Encounter, Brotherhood of the Wolf, Clueless, Collateral, Cry Baby, Edward Scissorhands, Gattaca, Heathers, Invasion of the Body Snatcher (1956), Legend, Mulan, Se7en
Samples on the TV front: Being Human, Birds of Prey, Clarissa, Dark Shadows (1991), Deadwood, Defying Gravity, Earth 2, Forever Knight, Friday Night Lights, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Highlander: The Raven, La Femme Nikita, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, The Lone Gunmen, Millennium, Miracles, New Amsterdam, Northern Exposure, Nowhere Man, Popular, Quantum Leap, Roswell, Six Feet Under, Slings & Arrows, The Wire
I'm leaning towards participating in this. I did a vid for someone and it was such a positive experience. Of course it helped that a specific song was requested as well as the theme, so if the vid requests provide me with that much direction then I think I can do this.
My own list of fandom nominations are as follows:
Being Erica (awesome Canadian show)
Blood Ties (I've never seen a vid for this)
Dark Shadows (1991) (because a vid has the potential to be awesome)
Deadwood (I've only seen one vid for this and it's beautiful)
Durham County (another awesome Canadian show)
Friday Night Lights
Homicide: Life on the Streets (I've only seen one vid and it's fantastic)
MacGyver (because a vid for this would be awesome)
Millennium (I've never seen a vid for this)
Murdoch Mysteries (and yet another Canadian show)
New Amsterdam (because I want a vid)
Quantum Leap (I've only seen one vid and it's fantastic
And of course....wait for it....Forever Knight!
