Vid Exchange Collection

Go. Watch. Flail. Repeat.

Please note that there are two vids that are still coming, so look for those tomorrow. I have talked with both vidders just today and they expect to have them up soon.

Thank you to all who participated and to our pinch hitter.
Vidder reveals will be next week (Friday).

We've had a couple folks request a bit of extra time. So, we'll be having a small extension.

Vids will be opened/visible to all as soon as they've all been posted or on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5th -- whichever comes first.

THANK YOU!

So, the deadline is approaching. *meep*

September 30th (end of day your time)


Kudos to the vidders who have already submitted their vids!!!

Thank you to everyone who popped in with a quick note on my last post and letting me know your status. I'll check in with you after we get through the weekend.

If you haven't mentioned anything and I don't hear from you/see a vid posted, I'll send out a quick email in a couple days just to check in.

As always, please let me know if you're going to default so I can see if I can find a pinch hitter.

Feel free to leave a note about your vid, vid status, etc. Comments are screened, so you won't give anything away.

Assignments
I've let AO3 do it's thing ((it's magical!!)) and when I cross-checked it, there were a couple cases where only one fandom was matchable - but everyone should have at least one.
-----That means that assignments have gone out and vid-plotting can commence. HUZZAH!!!

You should've been notified via AO3 and they seem to have it together but please do me a favor and let me know you've gotten the assignment. PM or email, leave a comment here saying I GOT IT (just don't say who you got) --- whatever is easiest. If you do NOT have an email with your assignment, please let me know!!!



Dear Vidder
Similar to most fic exchanges and festivids, participants are more than welcome to leave a link to a "Dear Vidder" letter in the comments. Dear Vidder letters are completely optional and are designed to give your vidder ideas of things you're interested in (examples). Just a reminder that your vidder does not have to use your suggestions, matching is on fandom only.

One of the things I find amazing at festivids is the amount of "treats" people make above and beyond the exchange. So why not do the same here? Feel free to browse the "Dear Vidder" letters. You do not have to be signed up for the exchange in order to make "treats", anyone and everyone is welcome.

Details about posting vids will be up in a couple of weeks (after VividCon, is anyone going?). In the meantime, if you have any questions, please let me know.

General Rules/FAQ:
By participating in the vid exchange, you agree to make a video in a matching fandom of at least 1 minute in length by September 30th. In exchange, a vid for a fandom you are requesting will be made by a mystery vidder.

When signing up, you need to request at least 3 fandoms you can request up to 6 fandoms. You also need to offer at least 3 fandoms, although you can offer up to 10.

The character and description areas of the signup are available for you to provide additional information about what you like about the fandom, what things you may or may not want in a vid, music preferences, etc. Please be aware that this is optional for your vidder. Also, like other exchanges (ie. yuletide, festivids, etc.) we will also have an optional 'Dear Vidder' post.

Signups on AO3
Signups are open from now until July 31st.

AO3 Tutorial: signing up for a gift exchange
This is my first time using the AO3 collection and challenges as a host, so if you have any questions or run across any issues with the form, please let me know.
Also, if you are in need of an AO3 invite, let me know.

All vidders are welcome, the more the merrier!!

Just a reminder that Fandom Nominations (DW)/Fandom Nomincations (LJ) are open until July 20th.

Signups to participate in the exchange will begin July 21st!!


For those unfamiliar with AO3, I wanted to provide some useful links:

+ Fan Video and Multimedia includes several resources of interest to vidders, particularly how to embed a video on AO3
+ Collections and Challenges which contains a wall of text, but useful to explain the details of terms such as 'unrevealed' and 'anonymous'.
+ Tutorial: How to Sign up for a gift exchange
+ Tutorial: Posting a work to a challenge

One of the nice things about the AO3 Collection and Challenge is that the post is made by YOU and yet can remain anonymous for a short period of time for that warm-fuzzy anon period*.
After artist reveals, the post is STILL YOURS and any comments, hit counts, kudos, etc. remain in one place. Cool, huh?


If anyone does not have an AO3 account and would like to participate, please comment and we'll coordinate getting you an invite. :D


*Keep in mind that using your own YouTube account may give away your identity! You may mask your identity however you wish in your post and edit it after the exchange however you'd like. I will have a vimeo account available if participants would like to use it. Embeds will not be required, a working download link is sufficient.
