Thank you for making me a vid! I want you to have fun and do Festivids the way you want to, and if that means totally ignoring the optional details that is fine by me. I like a lot of detail when I read letters, because it helps me start brainstorming, so that's how I write mine, but please don't feel obligated to read all of it if you don't like to have so much detail. I like many different kinds of vids and I like these sources, so you're pretty sure to make something I'll like.

There's just one outside the cut tag thing that I'd like you to know, because I have one visual trigger: super fast flashes of lights or colors that have high contrast. Almost all vids are fine for me, but some that intercut two scenes that have very different lighting for two or three frames at a time can trigger this, depending on the amount of contrast between the two scenes, as can strobe lights (in the source) or strobe light effects (in the vid). If you're concerned that you might get close to this, please feel free to run a sample by [personal profile] thingswithwings or ask me about a vid with a similar technique.

I often write up some notes after I make a vid, partly as a reminder to me and partly because I enjoy reading other people's process notes. But this one got … kind of excessive? So I subdivided it a bit, but there is still a lot here.

First, the link: this is about straightening up the house, a vid about queer erasure when Marvel comics are translated to Marvel films.

Title: Straightening Up the House
Fandom: Marvel comics and films
Song: Straightening Up the House by Romanovsky and Phillips (from "Emotional Rollercoaster," released in 1988)
Length: 4:00
Contains: No standard content notes. Queer erasure. Suicidal ideation (in comics speech bubbles). Opens with a terrible James Gunn interview.
Summary: Commemorating more than ten years of queer characters (not) appearing in Marvel films.

This is my premiere for the [community profile] wiscon_vidparty! I have been thinking of making an angry vid like this about the translation of comics to films and tv for a long time, and I happened upon this amazingly perfect song last year. I had a lot of ... fun? trying to combine comics and films (I initially was doing some comparison panels that did video and comics side by side that just did not work) plus trying to combine lyrics + comics dialogue + title cards.

Thanks so much to [personal profile] thingswithwings for making this vid what it is - her beta work was invaluable.

Also, [personal profile] kuwdora made the motion text in the opening credits - this was so so helpful, because I didn't have to figure out how to do it or what it should look like (my brief was, like, "here's the music, something about text getting less rainbowy") and also, once someone else had made credits for me, I was committed to the vid and couldn't give up when it got infuriating.

Most comics footage in the vid is titled with character names, but if there's anything you want to hear more about I would be happy to tell you where it's from or the context of the panels.

My gifts:
I also received two amazing gift vids, both of which I'm going to download excitedly as soon as I can:
Mighty Real by [personal profile] metatxt, an amazing dancy vid about building communities and being seen as yourself, for the documentary Kiki.

This Love by [personal profile] aurumcalendula, a lovely vid for Randy and Evie, about the sweet relationship that they build (and about having that relationship and ignoring the people who want them to change) in Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love!

Notes: [personal profile] thingswithwings did truly heroic beta work on this, including proposing the credits aesthetic, bridging some sections I was despairing about, and (bless her) discouraging me from trying to solve those problems by going searching for more outside footage. Thanks so much, friend.
