Registration for Vidukon 2014 is now live! Register here.
Vidukon will be taking place from the 27th - 29th of June in Cardiff.
Attending Registration is £40.
Additional registration options:
+ Saturday night dinner - at the hotel restaurant, a three-course meal (with vegetarian options), drinks not included
+ a ‘plus one’ ticket for the Saturday night that includes dinner and the Premieres show
+ a spot at the Vid Bazaar for anyone who would like to sell relevant items eg a DVD of their vids.
Non-attending registration is £16 for anyone who is unable to make it but would like to support the con. You will receive a copy of the premieres DVD and the con programme after the event, as well as access to VirtUKon.
Please note: on April 27th registration price increases to £52. Registration closes on May 25th.
The con hotel is Future Inns in Cardiff Bay. More details about room rates, facilities and so on can be found at the Vidukon website.
We’ve reserved a block of rooms - to book one of these, mention that you’re attending the Vidukon convention when you book. This option is available until April 17th. The prices for these reserved rooms are: £79 B&B single occupancy or £88 B&B double occupancy. You can have up to 4 people per room for a small additional fee.
There are wheelchair-accessible rooms available at the hotel, and step-free access to the con rooms.
Our full accessibility policy is available here, including information about content notes for vid shows. If you have specific questions or concerns about any access issue, please contact the con at email@example.com
A post will go up shortly for people to discuss and brainstorm ideas for what vidshows and panels they’d like to see at the con. Programming is reliant on the efforts of attendees, so if you have an idea for something you’d like to organise, let us know on the forum.
If you can’t attend but would like to put something together, let us know too! We’ll give priority to registered attendees but it’s certainly possible to put together a vid show remotely, and if anyone wants to Skype in a panel or something, that could be awesome.
There’ll be a Premieres vid show on Saturday for brand new vids. If you’d like to submit a vid to that, whether you’re attending or not, please do! The deadline to do so is April 27th. More detailed information about vid submission will be available shortly.
As I was literally in the middle of booking my flight tickets, I went ahead and registered! I feel so productive that it’s almost a bit sad ;)
All We Got | The Great Gatsby
Really slick editing that’s perfect for the Baz Luhrmann-ness of it all.
Trouble | Interview with the Vampire
Louis’ Lestat feels. This seems accurate.
Precious | Interview with the Vampire
Claudia’s story was some formative that-is-so-fucked-up for me, and I can’t argue with Louis having a deep spiritual connection to Depeche Mode.
Sleep No More | Strange Days
Angela Bassett! Lovely vid.
Young and Beautiful | The Tudors
No Church in the Wild | The Tudors
Both of the Tudor vids are amazing. Young and Beautiful goes for more of an emotional impact, largely from the perspective of Henry’s wives and mistresses, and No Church in the Wild goes for more of a holy shit wow effect. (No Church in the Wild is pretty brutal, and might not be your cup of tea if you’d have trouble with a lot of onscreen death.)
Carpe Diem | Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet was such an excellent (and short-lived) show, and I love the sciencey focus in this.
There are some AMAZING vids this year. As a result I’m having trouble articulating my squee. I managed to rec a few of my favourites though ;)
SO MUCH AWESOME
