2014 Fandom Review  
I'm doing this review a day later than I should be but I feel that's a fitting ode to my general state of productivity at the moment. I'm also going to keep this short and sweet because answering the usual list of questions for such a meme seems like too much at the moment.

Vids made this year:

Fireproof [Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Hansel/Gretel] made for [community profile] festivids
Feeling Good [Agents of SHIELD, Melinda May] made for [community profile] festivids
Psalm 40:2 [Constantine film] made for [community profile] festivids
Wanderluster [Thor movies, Jane Foster] made for [community profile] space_swap
Hungry like the Wolf [Teen Wolf] made for Club Vivid @ [community profile] vividcon
From Here On Out [Teen Wolf, Scott/Stiles] made for tw_fallharvest

Of my vidding goals for 2014:

☑ Make a vid for Vividcon. This I did do!
☑ Make a vid for Club Vivid. Or, possibly, finish the vid you started making for Club Vivid last year. I didn't finish the vid I originally started but instead made a new one.
☒ Make one more vid than you made last year, so seven vids. I made an equal number, although I have one vid in the bag for a challenge that hasn't gone live yet so I technically hit seven.
☑ Make one more Festivid than you made last year, so two vids. Boom! I made three! Although this year it's looking like I will only manage two, or possibly one.
☒ Rec more vids! Nope, sadly.

Other fanworks made:

the thunder and the laughter (the last thing they —) [Teen Wolf AU] Art for [profile] teenwolf_bb

Goals for 2015!!!

• Make more vids! I say this every year but what I really mean is find the elusive method of making myself more productive.
• Launch [community profile] viddingland, a vidding land comm. I am still thinking about this so it's no where near ready. My hope would be that it inspires me to create more vids, but the downside is that I can also see it taking up time and letting me avoid making vids. So we'll see.
• Make vids for [community profile] vividcon. I would also like to go one year but this will not be that year.
• Actually rec vids!!! And things!!! I have so many bookmarks!!
• Also, comment more and make more posts.
• Play more games, and catch up on tv and movies and books, instead of rewatching the same things all the time.
• There's probably more stuff but I'm all ready tired of making this list... ugh, life, 2015 is off to a great start D:

Vids make me happy! I'm always looking for resources for spn_j2_bigbang and vidders...any suggestions?

Vids also make me happy! It's just the process of making vids that is sometimes unhappy :(

I don't really have any resources to suggest but I can tell you that one of the things that generally prevents me making a vid for the big bang is that there isn't a lot of time given in the schedule for it. You kinda have to gamble on having a later posting date.

That and the fact that you're either trying to make an AU vid which tends to be hard enough even when you don't have a deadline, or a canon vid which means you have to go through 10 seasons worth of source (which coincidently explains why I haven't made a SPN vid in a while).

I have participated in 5 big bangs and while each time I tried to make a vid, I only managed to do it twice and only because there were specific scenes in canon I knew I could use, but even then I was running out of time.

So tl;dr I don't knoooooow. I feel any suggestion (aside from more time for art) that would make making vids easier for the big bang would also make making vids easier at all times, and so far I have not found that magical nirvana.
