Back when I first started writing in this LJ, I mentioned that I was interested in vids not only as a narrative theorist and rhetorical theorist but as a teacher and scholar of writing. Most of my posts so far have focused on narrative; in the next few posts, I want to write about what I see as the points of connection between vidding (and vidwatching) and composition studies.

more about vids and composition )

Most of the vidders I've seen write about their processes have suggested that the song is the catalyst for the vid as a whole, the thing that snaps a vid idea into focus: there's a sort of free-floating desire to vid a particular show or character or relationship or idea, and then wham, Perfect Song, Must Vid! But I know I've also seen vidders write about coming up with an idea and looking for a song to fit that idea--I'm pretty sure [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24 has written about this somewhere, although I can't find the link--and that approach would be a really important contrast to discuss, since I absolutely don't want to homogenize vidders' processes; I'm interested in finding and examining patterns, but not at the expense of complexity and variety.
