The Vidding Toolbox (VidUKon 2013)


Question: What Inspires You?

Hi - not a vidder, but interested in the vidding process.

I'd like to host a vidding challenge for my fandom (this started with a song I thought would be great for a vid), and wanted some input in order to make this fun for the people who take up the challenge.

So, without further ado -
  • How long would you need (4 min song)?
  • Does working with a predetermined song work for you, or turn you off?
  • What do you find fun about a challenge? Not fun?
  • What were some of the positives and negatives of past challenges you've run across?
  • Anything I've left off that I should know?

Help needed - study on remix culture

Studies have recently suggested that the general public is getting more open to configurable practices. But what is the opinion about remix culture seen from the eyes of people who actually remix themselves? This, I was hoping you could help me answer.

I am currently fielding an international survey about video remixing cultures. I hope you will spend 10 minutes answering the survey and, if possible, share it with other video remixers (doesn't have to be vidders). It is strictly anonymous.


If you are interested in my previous research, you can have a look at some of it here:

STAR TREK 2009 - Keep Trekkin'

Film: Star Trek XI

Title: Keep Trekkin'

Music: "88 Rounds Per Minute" by Blue Stahli

Description: Action packed overview of the epic 2009 film. As someone who grew up with the original series and crew, I fully expected to hate this reboot but it ended up being one of my favorite films of recent years. They got the characters and the charm of old school Trek just right while still making it appealing to newer audiences, and the visuals were stunning.

WARNINGS: All fast moving, high-powered action. Watch the eyes.
