call for Vidukon premieres about trans characters

Hi gang,

I'm putting together a trans/genderqueer/nonbinary vidshow for Vidukon this year and would love to hear your suggestions for existing vids, and to see if anyone could be tempted to make a brand new vid for the occasion! The deadline is May 1st, and I'd love anything. A RPF vid about Laverne Cox and Janet Mock and their #girlslikeus work, an angry vid about how shitty Max's storyline in the L Word was, a multifandom vid about awesome genderqueer characters - anything and everything would be fab! Any length, any source - would be delighted by short vidlets as well as full-length vids.

If you have an idea, let me know at such.heights at gmail dot com, and I'd be delighted to chat it over with you.

In the meantime, please rec me stuff - self-recs encouraged. :D

I was talking about possibly making something for this, but I'm very unsure about whether I'll have the time. Possibly you could keep it in mind and if I manage to pull it together before the deadline I'll let you know? It would be a Dragon Age: Inquisition vid about Krem, the canon FtM character, a very short vid blending game footage and audio with outside source. A bit experimental, so could turn out not to work. The tone would be positive, about finding where you belong.

My WisCon playlist from last year, Gender/Queer Becomings, might have ideas?

There's also my Rocky Horror Show vid, Dandy in the Underworld, and Chaila's Transparent vid from this year's Festivids, which I actally haven't watched yet because I had such mixed and not very positive feelings about the show, but I am sure it is a fantastic vid!

Um... Anything made about Torchwood, for starters. ;)

I'll be back with a list.

Darn, yes, you're right. Sorry, reading skills clearly below acceptable level.

I made a Hedwig and the Angry Inch vid, Queen Bitch, but I think it's already been shown at Vidukon.

There's a wonderful Transparent vid in Festivids this year, called "Fame".

I was going to direct you to a vid I made a couple years ago, No You Girls, but it appears that Vimeo has removed all of my vids without ever telling me. I don't have a streaming link but you can DL from my site at I would like to say I'll get a streaming copy up at some point, but… (it's about midway down the page). The vid was made for Club Vivid and it's kind of a romp of genderqueer (in different forms) in TV and movies.
