I C WHUT I DID THAR: Understanding Meta Vids
Moderated by [ profile] millylicious and [ profile] nightchik, following the vidshow VJ'd by nightchik and [ profile] kiki_miserychic.

Discussion pertaining to the methods and reasoning of reading the meta level of vids. Discussion of the visual, narrative, and stylistic choices that lead to a meta reading. Meta vids being those that work in more ways than one, often suggesting a basis beyond the individual fandoms of the source andmore about a larger concept and/or fandom itself. Vids that go beyond the narrative of their source, commenting on the nature of that narrative, connecting with outside meanings, or placing the story in a larger cultural context.

Timing Is Everything
Moderator: [ profile] heresluck
This panel approaches timing on both a micro level (making the most of individual sounds in a piece of music) and a maco level (pacing a vid as a whole). Although it will be aimed primarily at vidders, the panel might also be of use to vidwatchers and betas seeking to understand how vidders create particular aesthetic and emotional responses through their choices about timing and pacing. Questions to be discussed could include: What are techniques for landing stuff on the beat? How do we acknowledge the beat yet avoid boring/predictable monotony of cuts? How do we decide whether and why to cut fast or slowly? How do internal and external motion of clips affect our perception of pacing?

This year's VVC notes are in the same notebook as last year's VVC notes, which means I never typed up most of last year's VVC notes (I throw out the handwritten notes once I've typed and edited them).  So I am going to type this all up quickly rather than exhaustively just to get panel reports up here while people still care.  If anybody does still care about notes from last year's Vids That Push the Envelope, In-Depth Vid Review, and Vid Review Part II panels, let me know.
