gwenfrankenstien: Cartoon version of Mattell's Frankie Stein doll, the teen daughter of Frankenstein's monster (Default)
I had the seed of the idea that became this vid before Festivids nominations closed in the fall and finished it in June, by far the longest time I've ever spent on one vid. I'm glad I did, because I'd be kicking myself if I'd finished before the Monster Factory Wrestling Federation stuff was released, it turned out to be pretty important.


The Boys Are Back [Monster Factory tribute vid] from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.



Vid: The Boys Are Back
Music:The Boys Are Back In Town, Thin Lizzy
Fandom: Monster Factory
Summary: If the boys want to fight, you better let them. (Premiered at Vividcon 2017)

No strobe-y quick cuts please, they can be a migraine trigger for me. I prefer vids with lyrics I can understand (so, in English or French) but I have no genre preference, I'm sure I will love whatever you come up with! Characters and ships listed here may not be identical to those on the sign-up, some of them were not pre-existing tags so the form wouldn't let me include them.

Specific fandom details )
gwenfrankenstien: Cartoon version of Mattell's Frankie Stein doll, the teen daughter of Frankenstein's monster (Default)
No thanks: non/dub con; A/B/O; porn about characters under 18; stories where a person realises they're gay/bi/queer and freaks out.

Yes please: People wearing their partner's clothes; when the characters' friends all know/assume they're dating for ages before they figure it out themselves; art where the characters have notably different silhouettes and/or a pronounced height difference; strong inks and bold colours; muscular arms; D/s themes (in fandoms with adult characters); double-dates in fandoms where I've requested more than one ship.

Specific ship/fandom prompts (all totally optional! just some ideas I have!) are mostly copied and pasted from my signup with the exception of Space Battle Lunchtime, which I just finished reading. If that isn't what we matched on, I encourage you to read it anyway because it's honestly the best comic I've read in years and I am in love.

General: Any rating is fine for adult characters but please don't make anything sexual with characters under 16 or explicit with characters under 18. No non-con. Minimal violence in kids' cartoon fandoms. Thanks for making me something! Some prompts are more specific/detailed than others; it doesn't mean I like those fandoms more, I'll be happy to get anything for any of these requests!

Letter goes here )

I totally forgot to post this one here!


Fight Song (figure skating montage) from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.



Vid: Fight Song
Music: Rachel Platten
Fandom/Ship: Ladies Figure Skating, gen
Summary: I was all set to make an ice dance montage after Worlds and then the ladies event happened and I had about eleven simultaneous emotions and made this instead. Every one of the top-six women has so much to be proud of.

I got this wonderful Galaxy Quest vid by [livejournal.com profile] littleheaven70 ! I love when a vid manages to compress an entire film into five minutes or less without missing any important beats, and this one is just so much fun to watch.

I made a Space Cases vid for [personal profile] elipie who requested either Cat/Suzee or Harlan/Radu-- Cat/Suzee turned out to be beyond my capabilities as a vidder (if you're unfamiliar with the show, they never appear on screen at the same time but are still the Formative F/F Ship of my heart) so after a couple false starts I ended up with this!

It was so nice to have an excuse to rewatch this show. It was horrible to be watching this show and not allowed to talk publicly about it because listen: I love this show. There might be at least one more Space Cases vid in me because I have more to say about this world and these characters. (Cat, Suzee, and Elmira kept trying to wiggle their ways into this vid. If I can ever find the right song to make an OT5 vid I will do that thing.)


Space Cases: Not Alone from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.



Vid: Not Alone
Music: Britney Spears, Alien
Fandom/Ship: Space Cases, Radu/Harlan
Summary: The stars in your eyes look like home (take me home).

 Another Drive In Saturdays Podcast inspired vid. I thought to myself, "Hey! Wouldn't this song make a deeply upsetting Hair vid?" and then I played vid chicken with myself for a few days and now here we are.

 

The Cruel War (Hair 1979) from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.

Vid: The Cruel War Music: Roger McGuinn/clumsily edited by me Fandom: Hair (1979) Summary: My Johnny has to fight.
gwenfrankenstien: Cartoon version of Mattell's Frankie Stein doll, the teen daughter of Frankenstein's monster (Default)
We watched this movie for next week's Drive In Saturdays Podcast and then uh, this happened. Almost definitely the most straightforward ship vid I have ever made.


You And Me And Her from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.



Vid: You And Me And Her
Fandom: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)
Music: You And Your Friend, Snake River Conspiracy
Summary: I think I'm in love with you (and your friend).

Death Race 2050 from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.


Vid: Planetary [Go!]
Music: My Chemical Romance
Fandom: Death Race 2050 (2017)
Summary: Just don't let go.
Content notes: Death, blood, gore, car crashes, state-sponsored violence.

I watched this movie about a week ago and felt the immediate desperate must-vid-this-now pull of hyperfocus. It was everything I wanted from a Death Race 2000 remake. Thank you, Roger and Julie, for this gift.

I get migraines, so please avoid quick strobe-like cuts. I like vids with lyrics, in English or French. Other than that I’m cool with whatever music speaks to you!

I received this wonderful IDW Jem vid from [personal profile] garrideb, a tribute to comics!Pizzazz.
And I made this:

Don't Panic from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.


Fandom: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1981 TV)
Music: Dance Apocalyptic, Janelle Monae
Summary: I need to know-- if the world says it's time to go, tell me, will you freak out?

I hadn't seen the TV series in years and years and it was an absolute joy to revisit as an adult! If you haven't seen it, or haven't seen it in a long time, I recommend it. I certainly appreciate TV Trillian more now than I did at thirteen or so-- She made no sense to me then, but as a woman with a graduate degree and no real career prospects, if someone offered me a job in my field but the catch was I had to dress like a SF pulp cover I'd jump at the chance now.

I also posted a recs list here on tumblr! Lots of great vids this year, including some I wish I had made.

Fandom-specific stuff cut for length )
gwenfrankenstien: Bette and Rose from the Wolf House series (bette and rose)

Yes Please:
Characters drawn with distinctive body shapes/facial features. Costume-swap/wearing your girlfriend’s clothes. Bodyswap, especially with characters from different species or with vastly different powersets. Fic where everyone around our ship already thinks they’re dating and they are the last to find out. Bondage & D/s themes, especially if the bigger/tougher/stronger/scarier character is submissive. Rivals-to-lovers. Bright colours for superhero stuff, deep blacks/heavy inks in horror and fantasy stuff. Supernatural themes. Awkward teenagers. Musician AUs. Crossovers between requested fandoms. Sad human x ghost or human x immortal love stories. Time travel (meeting their own past/future self or their partner’s). Athletic and superheroic characters drawn with muscle definition.

I tend to prefer stylized art to photorealism. I’m always impressed by people who do fannish crafting, so if you want to do that instead of drawing for an art gift that’s absolutely welcome!

If you want to interpret any characters here as trans or non binary that’s welcome (personally I read Cass Cain as agender and Cassie Sandsmark as a trans girl, but feel free to write or draw either of them without taking that into account). I’m happy to receive fic or art of any rating (see letter for some exceptions).

No Thanks:
Nothing sexual with characters under 16, nothing explicit with characters under 18. No dub/non con. No unrequited pining except where indicated. No A/B/O. No stories where homophobia is the focus. This is a bit of a weird one but please don’t give any character a pet hamster.

I’m just spitballing out ideas here, pick any that seem interesting to you or do your own thing, no need to try and fit in everything, I just have a lot to say!

This Girl [St. Trinian's fanvid] from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.


Fandom: St. Trinian's (2007), St. Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold (2009)
Music: This Girl is Taking Bets, Thea Gilmore
Summary: She's a four-minute warning, she is hell to pay.
Content notes: Drug/alcohol use

About half of these shots have been sitting here in my brain for literal years, I'm glad that I now have the skills (and a good enough computer) to actually make the vid.

This is the last paper I wrote while I was working on my MLIS degree, for a course on Book History. A few people expressed interest in reading it at the time, and I have a 'frankencritters' square on at least one of my open [community profile] genprompt_bingocards, so I'm cleaning it up and posting it publicly. My professor was able to look at the same physical books that I was; I'm including images here whenever possible because you, dear reader, probably don't have that option.

Our House [Crimson Peak fanvid] from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.



Fandom: Crimson Peak
Music: Our House, Marisa Berenson and the Muppet Orchestra
Summary: When you come to our house, we will have some fun.
Content notes: Blood, violence, death, sibling incest

My goal is to make a vid for every month this year. This being only the fifth of March, I'm well ahead of the game. (This was actually supposed to be my immediately-post-Festivids project but then the Carrie vid... happened to me.)

Festivids 2015: What a way to make a living from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.



Title: What A Way To Make A Living
Music: 9 to 5, Dolly Parton
Fandom: Black Books
Summary: I swear sometimes that man is out to get me.
Warnings: None
Made for GhostTownExit00 for Festivids 2015-2016

This was tons of fun to make! I try to pay attention to internal motion when I'm vidding and the show footage was very cooperative in that respect. In a helpful coincidence, the day I started working on this Black Books got put on Canadian netflix, so I had a lot of friends and family watching or re-watching the show who I could subject to my various drafts. None of them are likely to see this post but, just in case, thanks guys!
gwenfrankenstien: Bette and Rose from the Wolf House series (fireproof hearts)
So I had a very, very bad day on Tuesday, and a day off on Wednesday in which I watched three Carrie films in a row to recover from Tuesday.

And then I dashed off a draft of a five-minute vid in three days, which I have now made as presentable as I feel I'm able.


Stretched On Your Grave from Gwen Frankenstein on Vimeo.



Title: Stretched On Your Grave
Music: I Am Stretched On Your Grave (Apple-Bright Mix), Sinéad O'Connor
Sources: Carrie (1976, 2002, 2013), Carrie 2: The Rage
Summary: Sue, are you sure you aren't still trying to save a girl who died 20 years ago?
Warnings: Death, blood, suicide, bullying. Surprisingly little menstrual horror or abusive parents given the source material.

Hi! Thank you for offering to vid one of my small/smallish fandoms! I'm sure I will love whatever you produce. I get migraines, so please avoid extremely quick strobe-y/flashing cuts. I prefer vids with lyrics (in English or French), but other than that whatever genre of music speaks to your vidding muse is good!

Jem (IDW Comic) )
Figure Skating RPF: 1988 Olympics )

gwenfrankenstien: Tracy Wright as Vic and Molly Parker as Kat (fictional rock stars)
General likes: Radical AUs (‘what if Batgirl went to Hogwarts?’ ‘What if Jem were set in space?’ etc), size differences, clothes/costume swap, bodyswap, D/s themes (especially if the bigger/tougher/stronger/scarier character is submissive), supernatural themes, medieval/fantasy tropes (/subversions), awkward teenagers, musician AUs, crossovers between mentioned fandoms, poly ships/characters, interspecies romance, characters who don’t know they’re in love/dating but all their friends know, sad human/ghost or human/immortal love stories, time travel (meeting their own future/past self or their partner’s).

I’m always impressed by people who do fannish crafting, so if you want to do that rather than a drawing for an art gift that’s totally cool. I tend to prefer stylized art to photorealism. I’ve been on a Jack Kirby kick this summer, if want to have a Kirbyesque influence (or just draw some Kirby dots) in your art!

If you want to interpret any characters here as trans or nonbinary that's welcome (personally I read Cass Cain as agender and Cassie Sandsmark as a trans girl, but feel free to write or draw either of them without taking that into account). I'm happy to receive fic/art of any rating.

Dislikes: Dub-con, non-con, adult/teen pairings, sexual content with characters under 16, porn with characters under 18, unrequited pining except where indicated, A/B/O, stories all about homophobia/coming out (not that these things can’t exist in your work I’d just prefer them to not be the focus). This is a bit of a weird one but please don't give any characters a pet hamster.
