Theme: From today until Wednesday, December 5th rec vids about fake-trailers!

Fake-trailers can be for real or imagined cinematic events, television shows or even trailers made for fanfic. Unlike a straight music video, trailers often also contain text, bits of dialogs, credits, etc. Perhaps they mash up footage from one or more sources to completely alter the plot of an exiting movie/television show or create an entirely new "fake" movie/television show. Examples to inspire can be found in an article here and another article here.


You may always rec more than one vid for a theme. Please check out the community profile for details on posting.

If you're reccing for the theme, please tag your post with "theme: fake-trailers".

Theme: From today until Sunday, June 24, rec vids about cyborgs!

Cyborgs, or cybernetic organisms, are beings with both biological and artificial--mechanical, electronic, robotic, etc.--parts. They could, for example, be humans with artificial parts or mechanically enhanced capabilities, or robots with biological components. Think broad! Studies of cyborg characters, vids about the robot revolution, humans and their cyborg parts, arguments for how we're all actually cyborgs now--all fit within the theme.

You may always rec more than one vid for a theme.

If you're reccing for the theme, please tag your post with "theme: cyborgs".

Things have been quiet on the reccing front, so let's try another theme, shall we? (I promise to keep these a little more active in the future).

Theme #2: From now until Sunday, April 22, rec character studies.

As always, vid classification and definition is subjective and difficult to pin down, so basically if you think it's a great character study, then you can rec it. For those for whom a working definition would be helpful, a character study is a vid that explores or analyzes the personality traits, motivations, emotions, changes and/or narrative of a particular character. That is, a vid that explores some aspects of a character in-depth. This doesn't mean that other characters aren't part of the vid, or even that the vid doesn't compare and contrast multiple characters, or that others might view a particular vid as a relationship vid or some other type when you see it as a character study. Just tell us why you interpret it as a great character study!

As always, you may rec more than one vid for a theme, subject to the regular two recs per day, per poster rule.

If you're reccing for the theme, please tag your post with "theme: character study".

From time to time, I want to run theme reccing or other types of challenges, so this is me starting off easy and figuring out what might work and be fun. Let's dip our toes into a theme challenge, and see how it goes!

Theme #1: From now until Sunday, January 22, rec your favorite vids.

I'm as bad as anyone could possibly be at actually ranking vids, so this can be any sort of interpretation of "favorite" you want; your all-time favorite vid, vids that are among your favorites, your favorite for a particular character, pairing or show you love, etc. You may rec more than one vid for a theme, subject to the regular two recs per day, per poster rule. I will try to round-up all the theme recs at the end of two weeks and make a master post. 

Regular reccing can also continue during a theme challenge; the goal of the theme is to increase the variety of recs, not to limit all recs to that particular theme.

If you're reccing for the theme, please tag your post with "theme: favorites". 

[Suggestions and comments always welcome!]
