For critique of all non-original edited content videos (so called 'fan videos' using footage borrowed from other sources)
Instead of simply saying Fan Videos it is so called 'fan videos' and has the need to descibe it only as non-original edited content with borrowed footage..
Doesn't that kinda feel like a snarky mockery or slap in the face to 'vidders' or people who make fan videos. I've never really seen that before. Ya it's borrowed but tributed to our favorite shows. We don't take it to create profit or credit for 'original footage' but just as a showcase to the things we like about it. It's showing homage, really and I know with the show I tribute to, the writers and directors acknowledge, encourage and tweet our videos. Nothing wrong with that. As long as credit is placed where it belongs. Original footage and fan videos are on two different levels, not even necessary to compare or mock. We don't claim to be directors or anything.. I know there's alot of cover bands out there that sing homage to their favorite tunes. Or big time artists who sing 'Non-Original' tunes. And these 'Fan Videos' are just for fun. No need to be stuck up about it. We all have different hobbies. I'm just surprised.
What do you guys think? Does that seem a bit ignorant or dramatic to be classified as So called 'fan videos'
