[ETA: Have corrected some references to genderqueerness to refer to transsexuality and/or genderqueerness depending on the particulars.]

The past year has included a lot of fighting with my friends and communities about issues of access, representation, and social justice. I don't actually like fighting with my friends. I don't even like fighting with people who aren't my friends. I am tired of being frustrated and alienated, and I am tired of frustrating and alienating people. So I copped out of a lot of discussion at the con, and would probably be copping out right now, if it weren't for Deepa's example at the con and Laura's example online.

I'm going to throw out some criticisms and some suggestions here. I'm not convinced the suggestions are the best way to fix the problems, but I figure it's better to get brainstorming started, and sometimes knowing what's a bad idea can lead you to a good one.

[ETA: I'm posting these as suggestions for community feedback, not as demands to be acted upon.]


So, first, I recognize that the Vividcon Concom works extremely hard and has been attempting to deal with some of these issues. In general, I think it's a beautifully run con, and I'm grateful to the people who put the hours in. I'm going to talk about issues of racism, sexism, ableism, transphobia, discrimination against genderqueer people, and some general institutional failures to guard against hierarchy or to incorporate or welcome the contributions of newer fans not because I think that people have been malicious or intentionally prejudicial, but because we exist in a sexist, racist, ableist, authoritarian society that does not encourage us to question how our own privileges adversely affect our understanding of our power. If I thought the majority of people at VVC intended to harm those with less privilege than themselves on some axis, I would not bother talking about this at all. But I am not talking about individual intent; I'm talking about systemic effects.

Second, while I'm going to talk about a bunch of these issues together and I think all of them need to be addressed for the health of the con and the vidding community, I don't think they operate identically or are of equal importance. I'm talking about them together because I think they intersect and reinforce each other, but I do not think issues of status within the fan community have the same weight as institutionalized oppression based on race, sex, sexuality, gender identity, and ability, although the former can be affected by the latter. I would also like to acknowledge that sexism plays out very differently in the vidding/transformative works community than it does in society in general, because vidding/transformative works is a predominantly female community, and white, middle-class, able-bodied, straight, cis-gendered women are in a position of even greater relative power there than they are in society in general. Nevertheless, we do not walk away from the effects and internalizations of sexism when we walk into a predominantly female space, and sexism is still very much in operation.

Second, while I'm making suggestions based on my experience elsewhere, I realize that these suggestions may not work in the particular context of Vividcon.

These are some of the problems I see:

I don't run cons. I have, however, worked at a bunch of different tech start-ups during booms and busts, and in my experience 100 and 150 are big thresholds for companies, because they're points at which previously successful ad hoc internal communications and work arrangements break down; smart, driven, introverted workaholics can no longer handle the workload by devoting more hours to it and have to delegate or bust (lots of them bust); and institutional experience can become insularity and exclusion. I don't think these are the only things driving the perception of newer vidders that VVC is elitist and insular, but I don't think they help, either.

Some suggestions:

  • Make the incorporation of new attendees into the con an explicit priority, possibly with a Concom member assigned as newbie liaison.

  • [livejournal.com profile] vidderkidder suggested buddy arrangements for established VVC goers/newcomers

  • Have a vidding/betaing workshop either concurrently with the con or the Thursday before, breaking out into sessions of 1-2 vid in progress, 1 experienced vidder or beta, and 3-4 newer vidders/betas. This would probably need to be at least 2 hours long, with a break in the middle; it should follow the model of writing workshops where the person whose work is being workshopped is silent during the critique.

  • Have a randomized meal sign-up for one or more meals, where people get randomly assigned to a small group of 3-4 people outside their usual fannish affinity group.

  • Have an officially organized newbie dinner the night before the con or breakfast the first day of the con.

  • The Vid Review and the In-Depth Vid Review were both co-moderated by mixed-generation/mixed-affinity-group pairs of fans. This is great! Please keep this up.

  • Be more proactive in addressing [trans and] genderqueer issues. At Wiscon, there are suites on one of the main con floors open for small programming and overflow programming, and the bathroom for one of them is marked as unisex, as is the bathroom in the Con suite. I'm not sure it's possible to do the same at VVC given the different hotel setup, but it's worth investigating. For both genderqueer [sexual and gender identity] and accessibility issues, I am disturbed by how the onus is put on the people without privilege to complain, rather than on the rest of us to educate ourselves and make accomodation.

  • Be more proactive in addressing disability/accessibility issues. U.S. culture in particular is so biased towards extreme individualism and against interdependence or sensible accomodation of disability that it puts the onus for accomodating disabilities on the individuals with disabilities rather than on society at large. This can make it painful or humiliating for people with disabilities to have to ask for specific accomodation, especially when it ought to be a default arrangement. I know the Concom has worked with people with disabilities to make sure they have accomodation, but I think there is still room for improvement. Here are some things that I have seen other cons--okay, here are some things I have seen Wiscon--do:


    • Include a checkbox and text field in registration for "I am a person with a disability/traveling with a person with a disability and may require additional accomodation" and have a dedicated Concom liason for following up with everyone who checks this and makes sure that the needs are met. [ETA: Response from mobility aide.]

    • Reserve seats for people with hearing, visual, neurotypical or mobility impairments [disabilities] at the front of the room and near exits, usually just by putting stripes of blue masking tape on the seats.

    • Mark off wheelchair spaces at the front of the room and/or near the exit for people with mobility impairments.

    • I was happy to see the large text programs in the Con Suite this year. I think people generally realize this is something that is too expensive to make the default, but I'd love to see this offered as an individual option in Registration next year so people can preorder large text programs if they need them.

    • In crowded or frequently traveled hallways, tape off sections to keep some part of the hallway clear for people to move. For most of us, the crush of people is just inconvenient. For people with mobility issues, it can be exhausting and debilitating.

    • [ETA: Concerns raised about my disability/accessibility suggestions in general] [ETA2: Please also see Morgan Dawn's post.]


  • Use the Con Suite and Overflow Room for post-Premieres small discussion groups.

  • There's been a lot of discussion from newbies--and, on my part, honestly, not so newbies--about how difficult it can be to find people after official programming ends. Is it possible to keep the Con Suite and Comet Room open 24/7, or later than programming? (No, I do not think Melina should take speed for the duration of the con. I think other people also need to be responsible.) During the con, elyn suggested a message board outside the Con Suite for when it's closed, which I also second.

  • A lot of people are hugely stressed out by Premieres, but newer vidders are even more stressed out than experienced ones. Do Premieres need to be on Saturday? What do we lose and what do we gain if we swap the nights for Premieres and Club Vivid?

  • The Concom is all white and with a sole exception drawn from a circle of acquaintances with a similar fannish background. This is understandable. But given the con's growth, requests for changes that the existing Concom doesn't have the time to accomodate, and ongoing issues with exclusions of people of color and newer vidders, and, not least, the possibility of burnout on Concom staff, I would strongly recommend the active recruitment of new Concom members, particularly aimed at newer vidders and people of color. For people of color, you need multiple people on the Concom; just adding one person is tokenizing, frustrating, and generally unhelpful. It is probably also worth it for me to make explicit that the responsibility for addressing racial issues is not the sole responsibility of people of color and that you should be inviting people to take on particular tasks or projects and not to be your Colored Person Advisor.

  • Decide whether the Vidding Town Hall is going to be the state of vidding discussion or a progress report from the OTW. I was startled that this focused entirely on the issues of outsider visibility and not on any of the controversies that injured many people in our community this year, particularly the neverending RaceFail. Great, we're the scrappy underdog fighting the power who fits neatly into a tradition of white middle-class feminist protest about white middle-class feminist issues. When are we going to talk about the divisions and fractures among us? The IDIC challenge theme, unfortunately, fits all too well into this comfortable approach to power issues: it doesn't require anyone to confront anything that's uncomfortable, and when it fails to produce much that addresses racial or sexual diversity, conveniently the responsibility cannot be placed on any individual; it just happened.

  • At the con, at least one person was mistaken for another of the same ethnicity/race, even though she was wearing a name tag. Other people of color noted visible and sometimes audible reactions because they weren't white and yet hadn't notified people of this ahead of time.

    Dear my fellow white people, I do not think you're evil for making these mistakes. The people you offended probably don't think you're evil. I do think you're rude, thoughtless, and privileged by your race in ways you ought to take more notice of. And it really pains me to say this, because I am saying it to people I like and respect.

    Read the name tags. If you make a mistake, apologize.

  • [ETA: This point is not addressed to the Concom or white attendees. I'm throwing out for the consideration of people of color, as something I've seen work elsewhere. I'm not interested in forcing people of color into this or even arguing more strenuously for it if you're not interested. If you are interested and/or want to talk to people who've tried it, I can point you at online discussions and/or set up introductions with people of color who made use of the setup. But seriously, throwing this out for your consideration and now dropping the subject. Not interested in talking you into something you don't want to do!]

    Something that worked really well at Wiscon was (a) people-of-color-only meetups at a meal at the beginning of the con and at the end of the con, for people of color who wanted to network with each other, deal with particular concerns of racism and white privilege, talk fannishly without fearing racefail, and decompress at the end of the con; and (b) dedicated people-of-color space for people who wanted a break from the overwhelming whiteness of the con. I hesitated to suggest this before VVC, and I'm hesitant to suggest it now, because it doesn't do much good for a white person to make an outside suggestion. Absolutely I am NOT suggesting this as a mandatory thing for people who aren't interested. But I would strongly urge people to consider implementing this/asking the Concom to make accomodation for this, because, honestly, the difference in energy and enthusiasm I saw among my friends afterward was amazing. (I don't have time to look up individual links right now, but K. Tempest Bradford posted about it a lot.)

  • Honestly, I am a little reluctant to suggest the same thing for men. I feel that a lot of the discussion of men in vidding looks at men as a numeric minority without considering the effects of sexism and male privilege, which do not disappear when men enter a predominantly female space. A lot of the reactions I see to Laura's comments and other discussions of men in live-action vidding fandom or the history of vidding as a predominantly female art form do not acknowledge sexism as an institution or the erasure of female contributions to culture, society, and art as an ongoing and centuries-old problem; they treat sexism as a matter of individual prejudice. The problem is not that the men who vid or attend Vividcon are not nice guys, anymore than the racial problems with Vividcon are due to the white people in charge not being nice people. I have personally benefited from the willingness of several men in the community to share knowledge and advice, and enjoyed the work of many more. The problem is the way men are socialized to take up space and women are trained not to; the problem is who gets paid attention to, and who gets forgotten. The problem is that women are really, really, REALLY used to the masculine supposedly being inclusive of the feminine, and neither men nor women are at all used to the converse.

    So while men are even more of a numerical minority at the con than people of color (and I know it's extra fun for people who are both), the fact is that outside the con is a world where men have substantial power and privilege by virtue of their sex, and people of color have the reverse. (Yes, even in countries that are not white or Western. Colonialism: Bringing the global effects of racism to a continent near you since 1492.)

    That said, yeah, men are a numerical minority at the con, they're really visible as a numerical minority at the con, and that can suck. So I would support a men's meetup/men's space at the con for them to talk about the issues that come out of that if they're interested in that.

I was going to do this later, as part of my general round-up on premiering vids, but since I am already getting queries about my initial comments on two of the vids, I'm breaking it out. I found two of the premiering vids shown racist and one to display cisgendered erasure of trans/genderqueerness. By "racist" or "cisgenderist" I do not mean that the creators of these videos or the people who enjoyed them consciously intended to cause offense, harbor conscious racial or gender prejudice, or commit or support hate crimes. I mean that I believe the videos perpetuate and reinforce racist or cisgendered ideologies and the erasure of genderqueer people and people of color.

I am a white, cisgendered woman. I don't speak as a person of color or a genderqueer person; I don't know if any of the people of color or genderqueer people at the con agree with my complaints, because I did not discuss the vids below with them. If I am saying something problematic with respect to race, genderqueerness, or any other oppressed identity in this post, I hope readers will feel safe to point it out, and that my friends will not attack just complaints out of mistaken loyalty to me. I am leaving comments unscreened for now but may change this if heavier moderation seems required.

[personal profile] deejay, Fight the Power (Tropic Thunder)
In Tropic Thunder, Robert Downey, Jr. plays an Australian actor (hair dyed blonde, blue contact lens) who wears blackface makeup to prepare for a role as a black man. I'm told the movie is a parody of Method acting. I haven't seen it.

The vid is about the vidder's desire [appreciation] for Robert Downey, Jr.['s sexiness], and uses clips of his other roles to illustrate her appreciation for him [this]. The vid doesn't comment on Tropic Thunder as a movie, because the particular vices or virtues of the movie clearly do not concern the vidder; instead, she clearly wants to share her appreciation of Downey's sexiness and her happiness in fandom as a place where she can celebrate that sexiness with other women. It is a light-hearted, playful vid.

Blackface doesn't make me feel light-hearted and playful. Blackface makes me feel like I've been slapped in the face. Watching blackface in a vid that doesn't comment on it at all, among an audience of a hundred fifty of my friends and acquaintances who mostly seem to be laughing and enjoying the ride, didn't actually make me feel slapped. It made me feel so thoroughly disassociated from my own emotions that I might as well have been floating above my seat, looking down at everyone. I could not talk to people about it then, and I could not talk about it the next day at Vid Review, and I'm not particularly happy to be talking about it now.

No, I don't think the vidder intended the use of the blackface clips, without commentary, to be offensive. But that's what being white in a racist society means: you don't have to think about racism, because it doesn't hurt you.

Anon., "Right in Two"
This is a Supernatural vid in which Castiel, an angel played by a white male actor, reflects on the violence of the human world and how it has drawn in his fellow angels, as illustrated by real-world news footage and clips from Supernatural in which Uriel, an angel played by a black male actor, feels contempt for humans, goes evil, murders other angels, and is eventually killed himself. This follows a common pattern in the mass media in which people of color appear only in relation to violence--usually as perpetrators, occasionally as victims. I found the use of real-world news footage, and the pain of people of color both imaginary (Uriel) and real (Rodney King, Iraqi people, black people in footage of the LA riots from the 90s), to give "depth" to the suffering a white male protagonist horribly offensive and trivializing, and thoroughly disengaged from any understanding of the causes and consequences of violence. (I am reminded, unfortunately, of [personal profile] morgandawn's "Testify," a Starsky and Hutch vid in which footage of the U.S. Civil Rights movement and the use of a song associated with queer pride are used to express the stories of two white male cops.)

By framing this as the "universal" story of an angel responding to the "universal" tragedy of human violence, this vid erases the specific political, racialized, and imperialist history of many of the clips used. Furthermore, by sending this in as a response to a challenge for a theme of I.D.I.C (Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations), the vidder seems to be saying that diversity leads to violence and warfare. Frankly, that is not what I had expected from the challenge responses.

For a very different take on the vid, see [personal profile] destina's comments.

[info] jescaflowne, Go Baby (Cherry Lips)
This is a colorful, energetic vid that's mostly about action, based on the Charlie's Angels movies. Laura's post singles it out as "mainstream sexual objectification"; during Vid Review, [personal profile] jarrow mentioned the vid didn't work for him because the visuals were of women but the song was about a man. My issue wasn't quite either of these. I'm very fond of the way lots of vids genderfuck pronouns, either deliberately inverting them as commentary or just plain ignoring them in favor of emphasizing the story rather than the ostensible gender roles, each of which is a subversive move in its own way.

But "Go Baby (Cherry Lips)" is about genderfuck, or genderqueerness, about a boy who's addressed as male or described as male in the second person/apostrophe ("You're such a delicate boy/in the hysterical realm"), but who's described as female in the first verse ("This life can turn a good girl bad/She was the sweetest thing you had ever seen"), is based on the work of J.T. Leroy, and was first paired on a single with the song "Androgyny." Notably, it celebrates genderqueerness--and particularly the "femininity" of "men"--rather than using it as an insult or a put-down. For me, using this to talk about the sexiness of cisgendered women--who are already expected to follow those dictates of femininity--erases the genderqueerness of the song and contributes to the invisibility of genderqueerness and the policing of gender identity in popular culture.

Vid links here.

I missed some premieres in vidshows and Club Vivid and am not attempting to quantify how much time people of color get in multifandom or ensemble vids. Probably more Merlin vids should be on here--a lot of them were focused on the ensemble and included Gwen--but I don't remember them very well. If you think your vid belongs on this list, please let me know.

* = the vid stars a character of color. I'm including ship vids that include mixed-race romances with a white character and gen vids focused on up to three characters in which time is split roughly equally among characters (i.e., the Angel vid focuses on three characters, two of are white, although the ethnicity of the actors varies)

Also Premiering
* Stacia Yeapanis, This Place Is Trying to Change Us (Angel, Angel + Lindsey + Gunn)

The Bechdel Test
* Traykor, Sisters Don't Cry (R.O.D. TV)
[V. possible other premieres in this show also showcased POC, given the source, but I haven't seen them yet. Haven't seen this one yet, for that matter.]

Club Vivid
* Danegen, Start the Commotion (Leverage, Hardison)
* nc, Travellin' Man (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Ford Prefect)
* here's luck, Story in a Nutshell (Wonderfalls, Aaron/Mahandra)
echan, Smart Con (Smart Bomb) (Hustle, mostly white ensemble, black lead)
* sdwolfpup, Say Hey (I Love You) (The Obamas)
charmax, Seven Nation Army (Multi. Tagline: Rainbow Coalition vs. the robots)
Laura Shapiro, Mothership (Dr. Who, details)
Laura Shapiro and Vagabondage, I Want Candy (Multi, details)
Jescaflowne, Can Only (Multi, cheerleaders from Bring It On)

Challenge vids
* obsessive24, Red Cliff (Red Cliff/History of the Three Kingdoms)
* marycrawford, Swing (Star Trek TOS/lots of Uhura)


My favorites of the list above were Danegen's "Start the Commotion," Kassrachel's "That Was Another Country," hollywoodgrrl's "Marble House", and obsessive24's "Red Cliff," all of which are for fandoms I don't know (so you don't need to know them to appreciate the vids), and I also was charmed by here's luck's "Story in a Nutshell" and sdwolfpup's "Say Hey (I Love You)" and would like to try nc's "Travellin' Man" outside Club Vivid.

Antirecs for racial issues
Deejay, "Fight the Power" (Tropic Thunder) - This is for the movie about Robert Downey, Jr. as an actor who wears blackface. I will have more comments on this vid later, but, briefly, while I do not take the vidder as endorsing blackface, I do not take her as criticizing it, either.

Anon., "Right in Two" (Supernatural) - Anonymous challenge vid about Castiel's anguish about human violence, with at best clueless use of footage of real-world violence including the LA riots, the beating of Rodney King, and the Iraq war; combined with the footage from Supernatural's racially problematic Uriel storyline, this becomes yet another example of a story in which the pain of people of color is used to illustrate the anguish of a white man, and in which people of color appear only in terms of violence (mostly as the perpetrators and occasionally as the victims). Again, I'll probably have more to say about this vid later. I don't think the vidder intended to produce a racially problematic text or endorses racism; I think s/he did not think this was a vid about race. But I do not think authorial intent overrules audience interpretation and I don't think consciousness is necessary for people to make use of problematic cultural narratives.
thuviaptarth: golden thuvia with six-legged lion (Default)
Hey, I'm looking for a couple of vids:


  • A Parker vid (Leverage) from the second half of Club Vivid. I'd thought it was a premiere, but apparently not: it's not listed in the program book and doesn't seem to be on the DVDs.
  • The reference vid from the In-Depth Vid Review panel, a 10/Rose vid (Dr. Who) that I think may be called "Two Hearts"? Features use of text in the vid, water imagery (to text about fire, I think?), a quote about two hearts.


ETA: Found, thank you all!

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

I keep forgetting my luggage. On the way to, the cab was halfway down the block before I realized I'd left my wheelie backpack in my apartment and on the way from, I'd left the security check and bought a cup of coffee before I realized the reason why I felt so light.

My flight's been delayed an hour. We'll see how long my battery holds out.

Also, if you didn't see the update to my last post, [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain posted her TERMINATOR VID OF AWESOME, so check her LJ for it.
thuviaptarth: golden thuvia with six-legged lion (Default)
[personal profile] sweetestdrain did a nine- ten-minute Terminator universe vid to Patti Smith's "Land" and it is TOTALLY AWESOME, guys! Butterflies are tears and chaos theory and terminators are horses and the future is death and there is no fate and maybe it is a different Sarah Connor each time, a different John Connor, a different girl who survives, a different boy, a different war, or maybe it isn't, maybe it's the same conception each time, and those silver metal drops are hope anyway, and eels in the sea, the sea of possibilities, the sea of all the futures there are and could be. AWESOME.

Bailed on grocery & liquor run because am sleepy. Insert amusing arrival anecdotes here.

Dinner:
[personal profile] vonniek: How many books did you pack?
Thuvia: Ac--
Vonnie: No, wait, don't tell me! Let me guess. Six.
Thuvia: No.
Vonnie: Nine.
Thuvia: Nope.
Vonnie: Seven?
Thuvia: No.
Vonnie: Four?
Thuvia: Closer!
Vonnie: Five?
Thuvia: No.
Vonnie: Three?
Thuvia: Yup!
Vonnie: [incredulous] That's too few for you!
Thuvia: [smug] I was very good. Well, okay, three and The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite, but that's comics, it hardly counts. The issues were very flat in my bag. And I finished it half an hour into the flight. So three books.
Vonnie: I don't even know you anymore.

VVC DVD sets: Hey, does anybody want me to order a VVC DVD set for them? They are $10.50 each. You can also get your own with a supporting membership, which will cost more but which will be mailed to you more promptly, because it will be done by the con instead of by me.
thuviaptarth: golden thuvia with six-legged lion (Default)
I have Dreamwidth invites if anybody still needs.

Due to minor life traumas, I probably will not finish a vid for Premieres. I knew I should have started working on one in January. Oh, well. I am a little sad about this. I am very sad about the death of T:SCC. I want to lie in bed and mope all day.
thuviaptarth: golden thuvia with six-legged lion (Default)
VVC yay! \o/

I am going to try to finish a premiere for this year. ::very nervous::
