KiScon Fanvid Shows – CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:

There will be three vid shows at KiScon 2019: Classics, Premieres/Competition, and our famous Disco Show on Saturday night. To make these shows as awesome as possible, we ask you, dear vidders round the globe, to send in your vids, please! Whether you are an old-skool vidder or a newcomer, queen of angsty vids or king of crack, seasoned scholar of K/S eye-sex studies, or master of plot transformations—we’d love to feature your works at the KiScon vid shows! We are looking for:

  • Premieres of all genres: these are vids that have not been published on the Internet or distributed on DVDs/tapes yet (we are lenient if the vid has been shown at a convention in the past, as long as it is not available anywhere). Vids created in 2019 (and unpublished) are eligible for our competition.
  • Classics of all genres: vids that showcase the history and rich variety of K/S and Star Trek vidding from the late 1970s to the 2010s
  • Fun & danceable song vids for our Disco Night & Sing-a-Long: exactly what it says on the tin – upbeat vids suitable for singing along and dancing the night away! We will prepare subtitles with the song lyrics for these vids. (If you don’t want your vid subtitled, just let us know, please.)

Submission guidelines:

  • Star Trek TOS, TAS, movies, reboot are all welcome! However, we strive to keep the balance between TOS and reboot – we reserve the right to shift around vids between classics and disco tribs, if necessary. The focus should be on Kirk/Spock; we will accept a limited number of gen vids, though (but no other pairings).
  • Length limit per vid: 5 minutes.
  • Submissions of up to three vids per vidder permitted. A team counts as a person of its own.
  • Attending membership is not required, but if you grace us with your presence at the convention, be prepared to get a room full of adoration.
  • For the competition: There are two categories, drama (angst, serious topics, death, H/C) and humour (anything angst-free, happy and upbeat). Each vidder can send in one vid per category for the competition. (You can still submit more vids to the shows, though!) The attending members of KiScon will vote after the show and determine the winners who will be featured on the KiScon blog and recced all over the web.
  • There is also going to be a KiScon thumb drive with the vid shows, as a goodie for attending and supporting members. Let us know if you’re fine with your vids being included on it.
  • Please submit your vid as high-resolution and high-quality as possible. For the shows, we will use VLC player which can playback almost any vid file you throw at it. We still ask for reasonably common and reliable formats (e.g. .mp4, .mov, .avi – please spare us the pain of .flv or .wmv files). We want your work to look fabulous on the big screen. For more details and technical instructions, please get in touch with Lari: laribernstein+vidshow@gmail.com

Please register your vids as soon as possible by letting us know what you plan to send in (vidder name, title, song, genre, universe, length), either via the form below or send a message to Lari! Deadline for actual vid submission (preferably by Dropbox or similar download link): September 15th, 2019. We cannot accept submissions at the convention doors.

We are looking forward to seeing your contributions!
