Are you a fan vidder? A fan of fanvids? A vid looking for fans? Well Vividcon is for you: a convention devoted entirely to media fanvids - by fans and for fans.
Reposting: “It’s three weeks until VividCon, and the official con schedule is now available online! You can see this year’s vidshow and panel offerings here: http://vividcon.com/schedule.shtml
Also, if you’d like to volunteer an hour to help out, it’s not too late! Shoshanna has details here: http://vividcon.livejournal.com/351717.html
It’s also not too late to register for an attending membership if you’ve been thinking of going to VividCon but haven’t yet taken the plunge… http://vividcon.com/attendingreg.shtml
so excited for the con \o/
Who just uploaded her vividcon vid with a whole THREE HOURS to spare!
I’m suddenly seeing better-quality Winter Soldier caps on my dash so I am suddenly full of hope. Does anyone have a screener or a really good new cam? (I have the one that has the chinese subtitles and the EVE one and all the others that are worse than those. :P)
This post brought to you by the Vividcon deadline which is Friday, aaargh! sob, why won’t they TAKE MY MONEY and GIVE ME HQ SOURCE.
So, you like fanvids? VividCon is the first (and longest-running ) convention devoted solely to vids and the practice of vidding. We welcome anyone who would like to view or talk about fannish vids for an entire weekend, be they experienced vidders, vidding newbies, or casual vidwatchers! (Note: We are not associated with VidCon and/or the adult film industry. Alas.)
What the con is like: Our programming includes theater-style volunteer-curated vidshows, panels on vids and vidding, a rockin’ four-hour vid dance party called Club Vivid, and opportunities for attendees to submit their brand new vids to be shown on the big screen. VividCon is a small convention with a core of loyal attendees, but every year brings in tons of new faces and ideas! All genres of vids are welcomed and discussed, including gen, het, slash, anime, live-action, experimental, and more.
Where VVC is and how you can attend: This year, VividCon will be held August 8-10 at the SpringHill Suites Chicago O’Hare hotel in Chicago, Illinois. Attending memberships are still available and include admission to the convention and a DVD set of the premiering vids from the con. (All attendees must be 18 or older.) Most members stay in the hotel for a special con room rate (no more than four people per hotel room, please) — details will be announced in May. If you aren’t able to attend the con, you can also purchase a supporting VividCon membership which includes a DVD set, copy of the program book, and online streaming access to vidshows during the convention weekend and for several weeks afterward.
More questions? You can read our FAQ here or email us at email@example.com! If you’d like to connect with others who have been to the con before, our Livejournal and Dreamwidth communities are great resources for new attendees.
still one of my favorite vids ever, ever. Man, the premiere show at Vividcon that year was amazing.

Really loved this vid! The build of it is beautiful, the way it goes up to a crescendo with all the knights and then comes softly back down to just Arthur and Merlin again at the end. *sniffles*
