Learning to Vid by Word of Mouth

SO. Let us say there is a person who lives in Colorado who really really wants to learn to vid. (This person is not me. I do not live in Colorado.) How - how does this person go about this? Are there Colorado-based vidders who can mentor? Someone who does email or chat support for newbies? Online resources that are helpful? What takes a person from Not Vidding to Vidding? (I really want her to learn to vid because, um, she's going to make a vid I want to see. Look, a lot of fandom is enlightened self-interest, okay?)

All suggestions welcome!

I've been doing some video tutorials for newbie vidders, and have made several posts about process! http://thingswithwings.dreamwidth.org/tag/vidding (the video tutorials are access-locked, but I can grant your pal access or provide them with direct youtube links if needed.) I'd also recommend the LJ comm called [livejournal.com profile] vidding, the DW comm of the same name ([community profile] vidding) and if they're on a mac, definitely check out [livejournal.com profile] mac_vidding_101.

*waves* hiya :) I already have access so hooray, I will just go haunt your posts :) how very fortuitous!

I am not on a Mac unless iPad counts, I am a very entrenched PC girl. Does that make things significantly harder on me?

It ttly does not make things any harder! Just that my advice comes out of my Mac experience, so not everything will translate. I'd recommend the tutorials on workflow and aspect ratio anyhow, since there's lots of PC-applicable advice in there. But if you have any questions you should ttly ask! If I don't know, I'll ask my PC-vidding buddy for you. :)

I think both mresundance & fan_eunice are in CO.

Also she should check my "vidding" tag, especially pre-2007 or so. I wrote a lot of creative how-to stuff.

Best technical guide for PC users is probably absolutedestiny's.

Sorry abt lack of links but I'm on my iPod. (:

Seriously? I did not think your pop culture rock included books. It's a huge book! Of awesome!

Anyway the good guys rebuild in boulder. So it's an easy reference for people usually. ;) I'm about 15 Mounties away.


Um. Minutes. But thanks for the Canada Day pride there, autocorrect. Heh.

Broomfield! Hi :) and yes, help is going to be needed for so long. Oh so much help. I'm going to be working from largely YouTube and stills. Ugh. But if I can make it work SO WORTH IT.

I just...have no idea what I'm doing. At all.

Hi! I'm up in Divide so...about 2 hours from you? Not precisely next door but close enough for in person help with a bit of planning. Also, I assume by your icon and mention of youtube and stills that you are planning on vidding hockey? Because I'm actually doing a panel on vidding RPF and reality tv for Vividcon this year, so helping you would actually be helping me clarify things that should be included in that discussion. :D :D :D :D

Yay! Helpful AND ridiculous all at once. How often does that happen?

Because yes. I have to have something to do in the off season. :D

I will send you a pm right this second with my email address. Thank you!

If there are any vidders in eastern Iowa / western Illinois, I would love to get hooked up. Totally just ganking TFV's post here, but maaaaybe!
