As I'm not going to produce any more so late in the year, I thought I would do this.

Just eight this year, but no vidlets. Can't say I'm too excited/happy with the output this year. I had wanted to do a Seasonal vid in December but no inspiration at this time. I hit a wall in May that didn't crumble until September - and I feel I'm still stepping over the 'rubble' to some extent.Favourite Vid
I thought it would be simple to pick a favourite but after re-watching them all I found it impossible to choose. I love 'Blue' because Loki (Thor) is fascinating to me, 'Yellow' is very pretty source and guess what, a happy ending! 'Everybody Loves Me ' is a real fun Stark
and 'Feeling Good' likewise. I guess there is no stand out amongst them.Least Favourite
I feel 'Heads Will Roll' was a little rushed for Halloween and it suffered just a bit for it. It's still fun to watch, but I'd like to do another Depp film with perhaps more care and time.Most Successful
Taking into account LiveJournal comments both 'Everybody Loves Me' and then 'Blue' had a good response (comments overall are down anyway). On Youtube is the main streaming site where my vids seem to be viewed the most 'Everybody Loves Me' and 'Yellow' are popular. Most Under appreciated, IMO.
Feeling Good has just
registered one comment on LiveJournal, so that's a little disappointing. Hits for it on Youtube are going ok-ish I suppose. I thought it perhaps merited a bit more response really.Most Fun to make
Feeling Good. I'd visualised most of this vid as soon as I heard the vid bunny song and it felt wonderful to get it to come together as I pictured.Biggest Vid fail.
After having loaded Sony Vegas on my machine last January not using it to make a vid or even play around with at all this year. I do kind of hate change and have to force myself to try these things. It's going to have to be a project next year. Also this year was the first time I have started a vid that I later abandoned. I suspect there is nothing wrong with the idea, i just wasn't in the right frame of mind to continue with the project.Hardest to Make
From a technical point of view - Snow had the most varied sources and mixed aspect ratios to try to unify. Blue was a little tricky to start off without crushing the newly kindled desire to vid again. Other than that none of the vids this year have been particularly taxing or difficult.Kick Ass/Sexiest
Iron Man or Loki are always kick ass and any that may feature Mr Hiddleston appeal visually to me. Strong females haven't dominated the vids as they did last year but they do make a token appearance. Unintentionally telling video.
Most telling by it's absence. No AtS vids, not even in crossovers. This was 'my show'
and I haven't made a vid since April 2011. Saddening and I don't feel the kind of connection to the show as I once did. I think I need to rediscover it with a re-watch, and find some inspiration.Things I've learnt this year
Pretty much zip, except that the muse can disappear easily. Make the most of it while you have it. And you can't vid with cats sitting right in front of your computer screen. Or on your hands as you try to use the keyboard.Things to work on
Go see last year's comment. I haven't done any of those. Add AtS vid to it perhaps. Anyone suggest some good Sony Vegas on line tutorials - i could wade through the masses that are on Youtube but I think I'd give up too easy. Vid Projects that I want to finish
I suppose I should pull out that one unfinished vid just so I don't feel it's beaten me. I never did real comedy vids this year. I have two silly ideas but one requires many sources (again ) and that always puts me off.
Thoughts or comments are much appreciated.
