It's that time of year again - I'm after your recs for my Vidukon show! The title is This Will Always Be Our Home, so I'm looking for vids on the theme of, you know, home.

In other words, vids that explore what it means to to leave home, to miss home, to return home, to find a home, to build a home, to welcome someone home, to be without a home...etc. Is 'home' a building, a country, a planet, a spaceship - is it a place at all, or is it a person, or people? Is it a state of mind? Is it an illusion? How have different vidders interpreted/illustrated the concept of 'home' differently?

Give me your recs, people! I want anything that could be vaguely interpreted as relating to this theme. And ideally I'd like a mix of fandoms, genres, tones of vids (ie not every vid has to be Super Serious And Emotional, though I'm sure lots will be). Also, self-recs are very much encouraged! Nobody knows the themes of your vids like you do. Also premieres are, of course, very welcome :-) I think the deadline is in May, but if you think you might have a premiere in the works, let me know and I'll investigate.

(Also - come to Vidukon. Seriously, it's really great.)

There's this Deep Space Nine vid which should fit, and a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv2x0fDP4DU">this general Trek one.

I will self-rec a vid I made for Festivids a few years ago that is about exactly this - Home, Big Eden - although it showed at Muskrat Jamboree in Boston and in an America-themed vidshow at Vividcon, so possibly that makes it overexposed?

Will think on other vids that might fit your theme.

Jumping in to say I saw it at MJ at Boston, having never seen it or the source before, and made a total, sobbing, eyeliner-everywhere idiot of myself. Just so you know. :)

I'm not sure if "you" means me or purplefringe, but I will pretend it's me and say thank you and I'm sorry! I hope it was the good kind of tears. <3

:D :D :D on both counts! It makes me unspeakably happy that Soccer Practice still has that effect on you (How, you ask? I suspect it is John Sheppard's ridiculous face, with a dash of how the secondary voice in the song sounds like Ronon) and that Home has made the vid show cut. It's going to be neat to see the final playlist!

(Actually I have also recently made one I like even more, but it's in an exchange and anon until next week.)

no worries! if it helps, I can send you the SGA vid? I don't know if you need it to come directly from the vidder for permissions or what have you, but I do have it saved to my computer.

I am so sad I'm not going to VidUKon because every vidshow I've heard about sounds SO GOOD. Including this one!

My first rec that comes to mind: [personal profile] heresluck's Firefly vid, Blind Hope. It might be more "found family" than "home", but the physical setting of Serenity is so key to how the vid conveys that, it seems like it could fit to me.

From: [personal profile] amnisias
I was going to rec this, too! Amazing vid that celebrates Serenity as 'home' for its motley crew.

Also possibly The Return by ladymajavader, though that celibrates more the return home from a journey. http://ladymajavader.livejournal.com/2744.html

From: [personal profile] thirdblindmouse
Since you say even vague matches are wanted, while the lyrics don't reference homes, Charmax's Xena vid Devotion strongly embodies the theme from the show that a home can be a person, not a place.

Oh, and for a sillier vaguely related vid, how about Gianduja Kiss's Beverly Hills Merlin vid.

If you don't mind shameless self-reccing, I've made a Doctor Who Christmas Special vid some years ago. I'm not sure, how this will fit, but for me, this is totally about home, in many ways.

This might actually be my favorite fanwork trope, so, some quick-ish recs and I may be back later.

There is an SPN vid by Lola called Nowhere to Stop that's set to "Anywhere on this Road" by Lhasa de Sela. It's about Castiel. It came out in late 2009. Some lyrics: "I live in this country now / I’m called by this name / I speak this language / It’s not quite the same / For no other reason / Than this it’s my home / And the places i used to be / far from are gone"

People are People by lim. SGA.

I have no idea when VidUKon is and probably massively missed it, but all the right moves I think fits the theme of home being a person/group of people/changing and nebulous concept, rather than a static location.
