The joys of the survey data

Still preparing for my 6-month review. I decided to include some preliminary survey data on the demographics of the vidding community just as an FYI for the panel. Under "Sexual Orientation", one person responded, "A bit more flexible when it comes to dancing."

I'm giggling too hard to decide what category to put that in.

Whoever wrote that? You are made of win.

How do vidders create their vids?

I just saw this post over at eunice's LJ, and it really got me thinking about how vidders might go about putting all the pieces of their products together. i wonder how many out there vid intuitively, as eunice does, or how many prefer to storyboard everything in advance. is the clip choice also intuitive, or does a vidder know in advance what particular scenes they want to add?

so any vidders out there who may be reading this, why don't you let me know - how do you go about bringing the pieces together?
