Hi Festividder!

As always, thank you for making a vid for me :) I have a few brief notes below but really, any kind of vid about any of my requests will be delightful.

Monument Valley (Video Game)

I keep hoping for a vid of Monument Valley even though the story is minimal and it's a mobile game that can only be played in portrait mode. But a vid of it would be so preeeetty!

Portal (Video Game)

I love this game for a lot of reasons. I love playing it and I thought the gameplay mechanics were a lot of fun. I love the scenery in both games: the futuristic testing chambers, the abandoned offices, the broken down facilities and the retro testing chambers in the sequel. I love the songs for the credits. I love the merchandise; I totally own a miniature portal gun and an Aperture Science tank top. I also love these videos: a Portal fan film, an official commercial for the game and the infamous credits song.

So I guess the vid I am envisaging for this is one that doesn't just focus on the gameplay but all the related media around the 'Portal' concept. So you, no biggie, just a small quick massively multi-source vid :O :O :O

The Good Place (TV)

Such a great show and I like all the characters, so whether you want to make an ensemble vid or focus on a character or a relationship, its all good.

Florence + the Machine (Music Videos)

I love Florence's music and I love her music videos. The video for "Big God" is amazing. So vid that looks at all the visuals and themes of her videos would be lovely.

George of the Jungle (1997) [SAFETY]

I nominated this purely because of this tumblr post, so a vid that encapsulates the themes of that post would be lovely.

The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) [SAFETY]

The dynamic between Darius and Michael is pretty amusing, but I would love a vid about Darius and Sonia.

Whoops, I didn't write my letter on time! However, I don't really have that much more to say about my requests so if you were looking for inspiration, uh...

I do love all these sources though so a vid in any of them would be lovely.

In general I like all kinds of music choices as long as it fits the ~~~feel~~~ of the vid. And unexpected music choices are always a pleasure. I also like vids that "flow" where the editing and movement of the clips really complement the music.

But seriously, any kind of vid will be awesome!

American Gods
Loved the books, loved the show. Maybe something focused on the different gods, how they were in their prime compared to modern day?

In the Flesh
I really loved this show for the short time it was on TV. Something focused on Kieran or Kieran/Simon would be great.

Merlin
I really loved this show and while it may have gone down in quality over time there were still so many awesome moments that reminded me why I loved it so. Anything focused on the four mains (Merlin, Arthur, Gwen & Morgana) either individually, or in different combinations or all together would be great.

Xena
Oh, Xena. I also loved this show. A lot. Probably my favourite show out of the list. Any vid focusing on Xena or Gabrielle or both would be lovely.

Coraline
I've always been a fan of Neil Gaiman and I really liked this adaption as well. I like Coraline but I also really like the visuals of the move in general.

The Mummy Series
Who doesn't love the Mummy series? But I have to admit I am more interested in Evy and Evy/Rick. But I certainly wouldn't say no to an Ardeth Bay vid.

What We Do In The Shadows
Such a hilarious movie. Again, any kind of vid would be great.

Thanks in advance for the vid, Equinoxxer!

Firstly, as always, thank you Festividder for making me a vid! I have very few notes under the cut so if you were looking for inspiration... whoops. But seriously, I will like any kind of vid from any of the sources.

In regards to music I love all kinds and there have been many vids that have made me love a song purely on the basis of being an awesome vid.

In regards to the kinds of vids that I like, well, that is too vague of a question but I do like vids that "flow" ie. where the movement of the clips flow across the editing.

Hello Equinoxxer!

Firstly, thank you for making me a vid!

General things I like in vids:

- Editing to the music flow
- Unusual music choices

In regards to my requests, I don't have a strong preference for specific prompts so really make whatever vid you want. But if you want to know my extremely brief thoughts on each source, see below.

American Gods

Confession: I haven't actually watched the show yet but I totally intend to before vid reveals. I have read the book and what I have seen of the show looks amazing. I am just waiting for the appropriate time to binge watch the entire thing.

Coraline

Loved the book and loved the visuals of the movie. A vid about Coraline herself would be great.

Hogfather

I loooove the Discworld books. I don't think the film adaptions quite capture the feelings of the books but I think they do a really good job. I nominated Hogfather because Susan is a favourite character of mine from the books and I loved seeing her on film.

Legend of the Seeker

This is the only source where I haven't read the books but I super enjoyed the show. I loved the characters, the costumes, the slow-mo fighting. Totally my aesthetic. An ensemble vid or a vid focusing on the women would be great.

The Hunger Games

Loved the books, loved the movies. I was Team Katniss more than Team Peeta or Gale though.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

A remember reading the books years and years ago and feeling very confused. But I thought the show was really fun. An ensemble vid or a vid about Dirk and Todd would be great.

Thank you!

Does anyone have any recommendations for converting/extracting .mkv files for vidding purposes when MKVExtract and MKVCleaner have failed you?

Specifically I have .mkv files of the Bluray seasons of Agent Carter but my normal method of extracting the video using MKVExtract isn't working.

Firstly, thank you for writing a fic or making a vid for me. I can't wait to see what you create!

So I was thrilled when we got a Peggy Carter TV show since I loved the character in First Avenger.

The first season was pretty great but I'll be honest, I was not too fond of Season 2. It had some great moments but overall I found it lacking.

I kinda hated Peggy/Daniel a lot. I hated after being turned down for drinks Daniel apparently had a tantrum, moved across the country, ignored Peggy, got engaged and then broke off the engagement, and we're somehow supposed to believe Peggy still likes him and this is supposedly a romantic story?

So, uh, normally I don't do this but please don't include their in my gift. Either by writing it out or just pretending it never existed. How the show created their relationship really annoys me. I'm sorry if you like them :( :( :(

I also hated how they seemed to screw over their female characters. I hated how Angie wasn't there despite the season being set in LA and it would make perfect sense for her to have move out there. I hated how Violet just seemed to disappear after Daniel broke up with her. I hated how Whitney's story was resolved. She started off such a great villian and then it all just fizzled out. I hated how Ana's plotline about not being able to have kids seemed to be more about giving Jarvis angst then how it affected her.

But there were things I liked about Season 2 (which tended to be what I liked from Season 1). I love Peggy, of course. I liked Peggy and Jarvis' relationship. I liked Howard Stark (not so much as a person but he was great fun to watch as a character). I loved Dottie (the only reason I am not requesting her is because I got a lovely fic about her last year). I liked the new characters we got and the ones we got to see more of: Ana, Jason, Rose, and Whitney. I don't mind Daniel and Jack in a working relationship but I don't really care about them romantically or as focus characters.

General Likes/Dislikes

I always find it really hard to list anything here.

In general I don't really want anything with a high rating in regards to violence, dark themes, noncon, etc. But I don't mind a high rating in regards to sex. And despite how little I liked Daniel in Season 2 I don't want any "character bashing".

The list of things I like in fic is too varied but hopefully the notes above and below give you an idea of the kind of stories I like.

In regards to vids. I like vids that flow to the music and I don't like vids that are heavy on effects or "talky" face.

Music wise I'm up for any song choice as long as it suits the vid both in tone and lyrics. But I like songs for Agent Carter that have a little "old-timey" feel if you know what I mean.

Specific prompts

Peggy Carter

Yeah, so I ♥ Peggy Carter. Anything that focuses on her would be great. I don't have any specific request in mind. It can't be during the war, during working at the SSR, during working at SHIELD, during an AU where she mysteriously ends up in modern day. It's all good!

I like seeing her relationships with the other female characters or with Steve, Howard, Jarvis and the Howling Commandos. But anything focusing just on her is still good.

Peggy Carter & Angie Martinelli

I loved their relationship in Season 1. Anything that explores this further would be great. I would love a story where Angie gets caught up in one of Peggy's missions and seeing just how awesome Peggy is and just what her job entails.

Peggy Carter/Angie Martinelli

As above, I loved their relationship and I have no preference whether it's platonic or romantic.

Peggy Carter & Violet

As above, I hated what happened with Violet. Not only how she just disappeared but how it seems like she only existed to give Daniel angst.

So I would love a story that sees Peggy and Violet becoming friends and exploring who Violet is further. After all, having a nurse as a friend probably has some perks considering Peggy's line of work.

Peggy Carter/Jason Wilkes

I really loved Jason's character and if Peggy had to be in a romantic relationship I was totally rooting for him. So any story with them working together or getting together romantically, or both, would be great. I loved how every time they saw each other they just seemed to smile so widely at each other. Like I said above I don't want any character bashing, so while I do want Daniel out of the picture I would prefer he wasn't vilified in order to get Peggy and Jason together.

Peggy Carter/Gabe Jones

I know Peggy married Gabe in the comics but I haven't actually read them and don't know much more than that. But I really liked Peggy's relationship with the Howling Commandos in episode 1x05 and it speaks of a much stronger relationship then what we saw in the First Avenger. So I would love to see a story about Peggy building a relationship with Gabe but also seeing her with the rest of the Howlies.

Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers

I love Steve/Peggy so much and I am devastated we never got to explore their relationship further. So any kind of fic or vid about them would be delightful. I don't care when or where or how AU it is, I just love them together.

I don't really see either of them settling down in to a "typical" relationship ie. get married, kids, white picket fence, etc. So it would be interesting to see how they navigate their relationship among their unique jobs. Nor would I expect their relationship to be completely smooth sailing either. I think both of them are far too stubborn for that.

Angie Martinelli/Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers

I've only read one story with this pairing but I thought it would be interesting. Angie and Steve are both clearly important to Peggy so it would be interesting to see how a relationship works out. And I think it would be interesting to see how Steve and Angie would interact. They could bond over the theatre and performing!

Also, I think it would be funny because Steve doesn't really know how to interact with one woman, let alone two.
