On a totally different note, I looked at a million different fanarts and sources that didn't end up in the vid. I had all these themes - like "amazing crafts" and like "posts by people with mental illness" and etc - that didn't make it in. So I'm going to link to some under this cut )

And last of all, in case you ever need this in your life, Carrie Fisher giving a middle finger to the world (mp4). (Actually she's flipping off Jane Lynch for making like four weight jokes in a row. So I'm with Carrie.)

Or maybe you'll need ten icons of Carrie flipping people off? (Zip file here.) Just in case.

I made two vids this year for festivids, one of which made me cry a lot. (And made a lot of other people cry a lot – I'm so glad y'all liked it!) It was hard fucking work. This is the story of that vid.

I matched on "RPF - Carrie and Gary Fisher," which was one of my stretch offers - my "maybe I'll get matched on this, and if I do it'll be a lot of fun and a lot of work" offer. [personal profile] cupidsbow asked for something that was more about Carrie Fisher's life overall, with Gary as part of it, so I couldn't know what vid I was going to make until I knew what footage I could get from earlier in her life. So I came up with a short list of songs to consider and I started watching con footage and Wishful Drinking and interviews and etc to see what I would actually be able to do. It was just an average stretch-offer festividding experience.

Then Carrie Fisher died.

I cried a lot. At everything: twitter, reaction videos, news stories, fanart.

Thank you for making me a vid in one of the small fandoms that we share! I want you to have fun and do Festivids however you want to do it, and if that means totally ignoring this that is fine by me. I like a lot of detail when I read letters, so that's how I write mine, but please don't feel obligated to read this all or to take any of this letter as a strict guideline - I like all kinds of vids (including critiques) and I like surprises and I like these sources, so you're pretty sure to make something I'll like.
