vids to think about

Do you ever think about how in the first Accepting Anxiety vid Thomas says “you normally provide the explanatory exposition because the other characters are too zany or relatable” and then in the second one when everyone’s insecurities are heightened due to being in Anxiety’s room Logan says “yes, I’m about to provide more exposition, just bear with me,” in a sort of apologetic way meaning the statement from the first part probably made him feel bad about talking too much (in combination with Virgil plain telling him he talks too much I mean) do you ever think about that because I sure do

Shame on me for having this in the drafts for like 5 months and never posting it

I don’t think people realize what rare and beautiful gifts really good full AMVs are.

Like… that’s hard. Really, really hard.

Something I’ve learned is that the longer you’ve been editing, the more time it takes to make an edit, which is probably the reason AMVs can take literal months to make, and most vidders usually cut the songs down and/or make short edits.

To keep up consistently good timing, clip choice, pacing, transitions, effects, and possibly even masking or typography over give or take three and a half minutes of song is a huge challenge.

It’s generally considered to take three hours to edit one minute of a movie. Apply that here, and we have it taking about nine hours for a fairly short AMV… and given that we don’t get paid to make these, and have to wrestle with hitting every single beat of the song, it can take much longer.

And we also have to keep our motivation up, find time to edit, not grow to detest the song, and struggle with technical difficulties. All of that is really grating.

I’ve been editing for a couple months over a year now, and, while I started out making almost exclusively full AMVs, I can’t do that anymore. I’ve improved a lot, and by this point, using the whole song is intimidating and requires a level of dedication that I could not possibly achieve every time I edit.

It’s been literally a year since the last time I’ve edited a full-length song that I didn’t trim.

So if you find an awesome full AMV, appreciate it! Tell the vidder that you love it!

I’m honestly just so in awe of AMVs and the people who edit them. Vidders are really badass.

Cherish them and their work.

ok but i feel like we’re underappreciating Yoongi’s dancing skills a lot, like god damn son, you move fine af and you wanted to be a producer? bless whoever decided on him becoming an idol tbh. we keep thirsting over the dance line’s dancing skills and we praise Namjoon and Seokjin on how much they’ve improved but we’re missing out on the background silent killer hero that Yoongi is. like really, why aren’t we talking about this????? and i don’t mean that Yoongi is a good dancer ‘for a rapper’, i mean that he can actually dance really well, maybe he isn’t a born dancer with the feel like Jimin or Hoseok but holy shit he has the MOVES. he is so good seriously smh wake up america

Sweaters uwu

Rich Goranski’s presquip wardrobe is sweaters ok 

Sebastian Stan has a frankly uncanny ability to know when I’ve spent any significant amount of time focused on someone else and that’s always when he shows back up to remind me to stay Loyal

me, trying to live my life: violent flashbacks to that time dan and phil went to play pokémon go in the park and they got tired from walking so much so they just sat on a bench together positioned squarely behind an elaborate fountain so that they had an unobstructed view of a finely chiseled male ass and then proceeded to ogle said ass and talk about it and giggle to each other and also to the camera wow top content
