Sadly, I think that I've decided against signing up for Festivids this year.
My brain just hasn't been in a vidding mood lately, and I'm not sure whether or not that's going to change over the next few months. I've very much been more of a writer than a vidder lately, and with D&D taking up most of my free time that isn't being spent writing... well, I just don't want to risk signing up and then having to default.
And to be honest, the thought of signing up for a vidding exchange right now is exhausting on several levels. It's a lot harder to post a vid anonymously than it is a fic, and there's no way to transfer the posted vid to your main account once the anon period is over - you have to repost it. It's not like with fic exchanges, where the mods can just flip a switch and suddenly the creator's name is revealed without the fanwork going anywhere or changing. Comments are in multiple places, there's the risk of the unsigned vid being shared on social media and never getting the creator's name attached...
I'm just not sure that I have the spoons to deal with that, to be honest. So I'm just going to stick with my fic exchanges again this year, I think.
