wrap-up of january '08  
So I've decided that to make it easier on myself at the end of the year, I'll do a monthly wrap-up of my videos. As with my '07 post, all links will go directly to YouTube as all posts at fadedpaperare members-locked; and there's a meme/discussion at the bottom. :) This will likely be my biggest month this year as I'll be starting TAFE next month (hopefully). If I make a video tomorrow, I'll edit it in - I did it tonight cos I'm not sure how busy I'll be tomorrow.

My favorite video this year month (of my own):
Definitely a three-way tie between "faintly toxic", "girlfriend" and "what goes around". If it were just effects wise, I'd say "faintly toxic" hands down because I think the effects in that one was pretty amazing and fun - but "girlfriend" is one I definitely adore, and it was hard work making everything 'pop' like that; and "what goes around" came out fantastically too in my opinion. :D Yup, they're easily my favourites.

My least favorite:
I don't like "stand still, look pretty" very much (although it's done quite well - seriously 115 favourites in 5 days! that's just wrong when it's a video I don't like, haha).

Most successful video:
Views wise, "perfect grave" has been my most successful video this month (big surprise) although it's followed oh-so-closely by "halo" (literally a handful of views) and "halo" has 129 favourites to "perfect grave"s 117, haha, so I guess "halo". Go Blair! :)

Video most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
"half jack", definitely. Poor Niki, she's so unloved in that fandom. And I loved "half jack", it's so much fun and it's my longest video ever.

Most fun video to make:
"half jack", along with all the videos listed in my favourites of the month, and also my evil!Claire videos, haha. :D:D

Hardest video to make:
"closer" was kinda difficult towards the end (I think that's noticeable too) but other than that it hasn't been too bad. :) I've been very creatively open this month, haha.

The things I've learnt this year month...
Nothing I didn't already know. ;) People suck. Oh, and they like to pimp themselves out to me - ugggh go away, if you're so good I'll find you myself. *headdesk* It's alright if they genuinely think I'll enjoy it - but doing it to leech off me (and trust me, I know someone in particular who keeps doing it and it's aggravating) sucks. And apparently people can't read either. -_-

Things to work on in 2008
As I said before: I'd love to learn how to use a program like "particleIllusion" to make really rad special effects. I've already worked on not editing down my songs as much - I've made much longer videos lately.

Vid projects I definitely want to get finished this year next month:
More of the pair-Elle-with-everyone project - I barely worked on that!
Boone/Shannon ♥
A Dan/Haley/Peter (GG/OTH/HEROES) video. :):)

Closer was awesome! Probably my favorite vid from you, you did a really good job on it!

I can't believe how many videos you're able to make in 1 month. It's amazing.

Wow - you are one busy girl!

Boobe/Shannon - oh, yes.

I know you've taked about it, but I'm having a brain moment and am too lazy to look it up. What exactly is TAFE? (Seriously. I KNOW I should know. I just don't. And it's bugging me!)

That should be BooNE/Shannon. *headdesk* Freudian slip, I suppose.

I keep myself occupied. ;)

I love those two. I miss them. :(

Haha, TAFE is like the uneducated, poor people's verison of college/university. Anyone can enroll in TAFE, and while it costs money, it's not nearly as expensive as Uni, and you can generally follow a course through to university level if you wish to. It's great for students who drop out of school early, or people who wish to change professions and get educated in a different area to what their doing.
