I have solved the problem of effort by not actually writing out why I like these vids; will do so in comments to the vids themselves, and to the dozen+ others I enjoyed. Also, I will not say whether any vids by me are on this list.

ETA: Now with vidders' names added.

First, shoutout to To the Edge, which was made for ME by [personal profile] elipie for the French erotic thriller Stranger By the Lake. \o/ My thoughts are at the post.

One thing I like about [community profile] festivids is the opportunity for exposure to unfamiliar movies, TV shows, graphic novels etc. So it makes me sad when people talk about skimming the masterlist for fandoms they're familiar with and then stopping there. Yes, a few of the vids will feel inaccessible, and some will be spoilery, but lots more are made to be enticing and/or to provide all the context a viewer needs.

Preaching to the choir here, maybe.

Yeah, um... I wasn't going to say before the deadline, but I'm not sure how you thought "Nephilim" was for me unless you mixed it up with "Chess the Musical", which is eerily similar and also hilarious.

I'm glad you liked the Noah vids (which of course I made), and the Blazing Saddles vid.

I don't know the fandoms of any of your vids, and in spite of what you say, that does tend to influence whether I'm going to like a vid, but I was amused and creeped out by "Behind Blue Eyes", and the Dark City vid did make me want to check out the movie.

Oh, this is a nice workaround for the effort issue!

:: So it makes me sad when people talk about skimming the masterlist for fandoms they're familiar with and then stopping there. ::

Me, too. I enjoy getting to have a wander among all these things I know nothing about. And it's not just the sources themselves; there are so many strategies for making a vid on display, too, it's fascinating. And, of course, I want the people who made something for the more obscure fandoms to get some eyeballs -- one of the points of a rare-fandom exchange, I always thought, was so that you could vid something obscure and still get it seen.
