September 2-4, 2016 | London, UK
A fan-run K/S Convention celebrating 50 years of Star Trek and K/S!
More info on the convention: http://kismetcon.com
For the Kismet vid show on Saturday night, we ask you, dear Kirk/Spock 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 Kismet vid show!
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 con in the past, as long as it is not available anywhere)
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: 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.
TOS, TAS, movies, and reboot are all welcome. However, we strive to keep the balance between TOS and reboot—we withhold the right to leave out submissions, if necessary. The focus should be on Kirk/Spock; we will accept a limited number of gen vids, though (but no other pairings). Submissions of up to three vids per vidder permitted for the show.
Please register your vids by letting us know what you plan to send in (vidder name, title, genre, universe, length). Deadline for actual vid submission (preferably by Dropbox or similar download link): 15 July 2016.
There is also going to be a Kismet DVD with a selection of fanvids. Let us know if you’re fine with your vids being included on the DVD (up to two vids per vidder).
By taking part in our show, you also enter the Kismet Competition for Best Songvid!
(Open to ALL VIDDERS, whether attending the con or not)
All vids that will be played over the con weekend are eligible and will be voted on by the attendees.
There are two categories. The overall tone of the vid determines its category (in unclear cases we will confer with the vidder):
Humour: upbeat and fun vids, angst-free, death-free
Drama: vids with a more serious tone, including all kinds of angst
We are looking forward to seeing your contributions! Please spread the word! Let’s prove that the Star Trek and K/S vidding scene is still alive and kicking!
