Details of swap:
Enjoy movies? Than this is the swap for you! We'll be crafting three tiny movie things for our partners, based on a list they will supply of their 5 favorite/most artistically inspiring films! Easy as pie.  Or rather, cake.  I find pie much more difficult!

There's a fairly long crafting time - over a month! I figure people might need that time to find the movies, or, if you're like me and rely on the library to get your movies for free, sometimes there are holds.  If it is impossible for you to rent/borrow the movies on your partner's list, you can request substitute titles (though, if you're like me, it's unlikely the list is actually only 5 movies long, because you couldn't narrow it down).

A tiny thing is anything that fits into the dimension 4" by 4" by 4". It is a small space to work with, but please let your mind wander and feel free to go as crazy as you like!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Oooh, I'm so in for this!!  I have two swaps that tracking says has been received, so as soon as I get feedback I'll sign up for this one!

Post by: puzzled-penguin on March 25, 2016 08:42:48 AM
Definitely considering joining this one, I need to have a really good think about which movies to include though.

Post by: seeuudee on March 26, 2016 05:34:38 AM
So tempted to join this one, but going to have to give some serious thoughts to what films - how do you start narrowing it down?


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: Smeddley on March 26, 2016 08:09:38 AM
Haha, some of us...  don't do so well at the narrowing down and end up giving our partner a list of 15-20 movie possibilities..  :D


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: roler on March 26, 2016 08:26:42 AM
I suspect I will be one of those people!  There are so many movies I love!  I'm still waiting on feedback so I haven't sent in my questionnaire yet but my list currently includes: Singin' in the Rain, The Court Jester, LotR/Hobbit, Big Hero 6, How to Train Your Dragon, The Emperor's New Groove, Moulin Rouge, Scott Pilgrim, Camelot, The Princess Bride... and I just know I'm forgetting a ton of things so if anything it'll just jet longer.


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: Smeddley on March 26, 2016 09:00:41 AM
I'm always one of those people, I like so many movies for so many different reasons!  And I figure if someone has a lot of options, their imagination can run wild! I love seeing what people make in these swaps, because there are always so many things I'd never have thought of!


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: puzzled-penguin on March 26, 2016 09:50:50 AM
I'm over the five as well but I might just err on the side of too many.

My partner won't have to use/watch them all but it'll give them more options craft-wise since I'm not sure how craftable some of my films are.  :-\


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: Smeddley on March 26, 2016 10:47:13 AM
That is an awesome idea, because not every movie speaks to people, craft-wise.  I have absolutely no idea what I would craft for some of my favorites (though I've had ingenious partners who managed!) so I always add way more than they need.

Also, some people don't like some sorts of movies, and this allows for flexibility in what they watch (I, for instance, will not watch war movies).

Noooo, now I have to add more possibles to the list, I had not thought to add either Moulin Rouge or How to Train your Dragon  ???


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: roler on March 27, 2016 02:40:36 PM
Smeddley - I agree on both points!  For example, one of my favorite movies is Sliding Doors, but I didn't put it on my list because I can't even imagine how you'd craft for it!  And I definitely think a variety of genres is helpful.  I don't do horror movies, or violent action stuff!

seeuudee - Heeee, I know!  And I'm still SURE I'm forgetting some real favorites!  If you feel like sharing your list so far, please do; I'm interested to see what everyone's thinking of!

Another movie I didn't add because it's seasonal and in general I like stuff I can use year-round, but I loooooove The Muppet Christmas Carol.


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: Smeddley on March 29, 2016 05:52:42 PM
Oooh, yeah, Sliding Doors.  Good movie, but, you're right, I'm not sure.  I'd have to watch it again with an eye towards crafting!

My list is ENORMOUS, but I'm going to go back through the movies I've watched in the last few years to see if I have any new ones to add.  Currently it is thus:

Never-ending Story (naturally)
Clue (so much love for this movie... one plus two plus one plus...)
Labyrinth (no magic dance or babe with the power, though)
Spaceballs (so many awesome lines)
Great Mouse Detective (a very underrated movie, I think)
Joe's Apartment (you kinda have to be okay with cockroaches, but it's a cute movie!)
National Treasure (it's a silly movie, but so much fun)
Balto (awesome dog hero movie)
The Princess Bride (another popular one!)
The Secret of Nimh (sparkly!)
Spinal Tap (goes to 11!)
Major League (Out by an eyelash at third! Man, we never seem to get the close ones!)
Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul, The World's End (yeah, pretty much anything by Peg and Frost)
Zombieland (second-best zombie movie!)
The Dark Crystal (classic)
Mega-Piranha (or really any of the bad SyFy creature movies, Sharktopus, Sharknado, etc... I can provide an exhaustive list of really horrible (but oddly entertaining) B-monster movies!)
Plan 9 From Outer Space (*THE* definitive bad movie)

I've done enough movie swaps I do have a board devoted to it, as well:
https://www.pinterest.com/smeddley/swap-inspiration-movietv-show-swaps/ (https://www.pinterest.com/smeddley/swap-inspiration-movietv-show-swaps/)
...which includes things I don't have on the list, like Monty Python (HOW DID I LEAVE THAT OFF?!). 


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: Mellius01 on March 30, 2016 08:17:46 PM
I couldn't help but sign up for this. My lists are pretty long but I think that only gives a crafter more to choose from. At least I hope that's all right with you, Smeddly.

My list includes:
Lord of the Rings
Jason and the Argonauts
Psycho
Young Frankenstein
Singin' in the Rain
The Maltese Falcon
Limitless
Rumble in the Bronx
How to Train your Dragon

And many more

Dang, I forgot to put Zombieland on my list.

Welcome to the swap!  Long lists are fine, and you have a lot of good ones for a partner to pick from.  :D  I always see ones on other people's lists I realize I've forgotten, I just like a *lot* of movies, I guess... :D

I wonder if there will be a new Sharktopus movie this year, though I don't think they can top the hilarity and silliness of Sharktopus vs Whalewolf (better than Sharknado 3, in my opinion!).


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: Mellius01 on March 31, 2016 07:50:30 AM
Thanks, Smeddly, I'm glad I got to join.  :)

I tried to keep my list to movies I'd like to have something crafted from and it still got out of control. I love movies, all kinds of movies, even ones with subtitles!

Sharktopus vs Whalewolf? What the...? lol I'm going to have to look for that one. I thought Sharknado was as silly as it got.


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: puzzled-penguin on April 01, 2016 02:00:14 PM
Finally culled my list a bit and sent in my questionnaire.

Boondock Saints
The Slipper and the Rose
Wilby Wonderful
Addams Family Values

Post by: IsikkahJai on April 04, 2016 06:31:09 AM
I almost included "10 things I hate about you" but not sure if it was craftable. Some awesome one-liners that's for sure though!  ;D And I can't believe I forgot Harry Potter -_-

ACKKKK I forgot Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland \O/ Dang it! All well  ::) Has ANYONE only put 5 on their list? LOL. I commend them if they did!  ;D I remember my second swap of this was a TTT TV and Movie Swap. I got addicted to my partner's list, especially Downton Abbey. I can't wait to watch my new partner's list!

I think you were partnered with my sister for that swap, stove037. 
I  can't wait to get my partners list too. Hoping to have a couple of movies to watch that I have not seen before.

Post by: roler on April 05, 2016 05:28:51 PM
Ooooh, great lists, everyone! You're reminding me that I probably should have included Pride & Prejudice (I love both the old BBC mini series and the newer one with Kiera Knightly) and Pirates of the Caribbean (first one only), and I also just remembered Pacific Rim and The Mummy!

Post by: Smeddley on April 05, 2016 08:25:55 PM
I got some more Qs but had zero time to add people today, I'm so sorry! I have to go to bed like 20 minutes ago, so I'll get you added tomorrow when I get home from work.  Then, partners!

And yes, stove037 made me that awesome piranha pouch! I still use it just about every day. :D

Partners posted and messaged, if there are problem *OR* if you didn't get a PM, please let me know.  There was a momentary glitch and my computer froze for a second, but I think I recovered?  Happy stalking/movie watching/planning!

Thanks Smeddley! I love my partner, she has such a variety of movie tastes for me to explore  :D

Hi Alliekat! Great list  :) I'm looking forward to watching the films I haven't seen and refreshing my memory of the ones I have. I'll be stalking you tonight  ;)

MUAAHAHAHAHAH I GOT SMEDDLEY ALL TO MYSELF!!  ;D I think I'm going to shamefully ask for amigurumi from her. I have the other two she made me from the sweat shop and they stare at me everyday from my wall \O/ And an infinity cowl? I think she made that one....I use it every winter without fail ^^ And now I have a ton more movies I can watch! Except The Never-Ending Story....I have childhood trauma from that movie :(

I stalked before I even contacte my partner! Not only that, but I currently have ideas for all three items! So unless my communication with her sparks something else, I am ready to roll! I am currently embroidering up prayer flags for that swap; but I expect to get those done handily! I'm excited to start these crafts though. A couple things I don't normally do. All three things I could love to keep for myself! Usually the sign of a good swap to come!!

I watched Shawn of the Dead last night, one of the films from alliekat's list. I've seen the other Frost/Pegg movies (I came so close to putting Hot Fuzz on my list) but I'd missed this one. I'm going to see if I can borrow a couple of her other films  from a friend over the weekend.

::waves hi to DaphadillyArt::  Hi again, partner! XD

I'm actually not very familiar with most of the movies on her list, so I'm going to have to start watching! 

And feel free to let me know if there are any more you left off the list! :)

I haven't started watching any movies yet (crazy busy weekend here) but I have started to think of ideas.  One will depend on what I can find, the other, I think I have what I need... then I just need to watch the movies to pick up on the nuances (I've seen a fair number on my partner's list... of course, I've been a movie junkie the last few years, so I'd seen a fair number on everyone's list!).

Yeah I'm not one to watch "outside the box" really  ::) Sorry I didn't have more of a challenge for you Smeddley  ;D I have a couple movies I'm drawn to for craftable stuff but I'd still like to watch some others. My husband said he watched Hot Fuzz and he thought it was hilarious....which pretty much means I'll hate it  ::) cuz that's just how our tastes roll. (He hated the movie Maleficent and I loved it.....yeahhhhhh) xD

Picked up some movies at the library last night, I'm not married to any of my ideas, so we'll see if I get any new inspiration. I have one idea that I'd need to find something for, it's *somewhere* in my craft room, we'll see... O.o

Hmmm, none of the movies I need to watch are available on Japanese Netflix, so I'll stop by the rental store this week and see if they have any there.  In the meantime I can start working on ideas for the movies I have seen!

I actually have a whole weekend off work so I am going to spend some quiet time in my basement watching some movies. I haven't seen most on my partner's list so I am excited to see them. I found some on Netflix and some at the library.

I'm going to start this weekend too. I have a couple of ideas but not sure how to proceed.

I have two ideas and plans to watch more movies. Items are probably not very um-- "tiny" but they're collected of tiny things so I'm gonna say it counts. And I hope I can pull it off. My (___) skills are still rudimentary ;)

I've watched a few more of my partners movies and started on my first tiny item :) I had the day off yesterday and watched the entire BBC Pride and Prejudice in one sitting. I'd seen it before but it was totally worth rewatching  :D

I finalized one project, still debating on the others. This is fun. Lots of new movies to experience.

I'm, um, counting one as "tiny" even though I think it would take the gravity of a black hole* to compress it into a 4" cube.  Technically, though, since there *is* a way it could be made to fit...  ;D

I  rounded up all the movies on my partner's list I had, and checked some out from the library, and am watching as I craft.  I do have ideas, but who knows, something else may jump out at me.


* I exaggerate... probably.  I'm only partway done and it's looking a bit on the big side, but I've gone too far to give up now.  It's also a HUGE stretch to make it fit a movie, but... it was on IsikkahJai's pinterest and soooooo cute!  Man, what kind of example do I set as the organizer, huh?  ;D

SMEDDLEEYYYYY :> I'm already excited! If it's crochet, I'm going to love it automatically. Your ami's are the BEST EVAH!! I can't wait to start on the "collection" of smalls for you while I watch movies! I managed to get one done before my sewing machine crapped out  ;D HOORAY for getting it done JUST in time EH? ;)

Post by: Smeddley on April 18, 2016 03:56:20 PM
Nope, absolutely NO* crochet.  Just because it's your favorite thing and possibly the thing I'm best at, you think that's what I'm going to do?!?!  ;p


* Okay, maybe a little**.

** Or a lot***.

*** Or a lot lot, like all?  We'll see!  :D

I'm still busily watching my partners films, a good few have been new to me which is great :D I had a few false starts crafting-wise but the second item is nearly finished and I know what I'm planning for the third.

I will be crafting again this weekend and shipping on time :)

Almost done with my second thing. The crafting is going well.

I realized I hav not checked in in a while....finished one item. One item sitting in the dining room waiting for the next steps. Hope to finish this by the end of the weekend. Last item will need to wait. Had a family crisis come up and I'm not sure how I will fit it in....but I will!!

Picked up an extra for my partner the other day that I think she'll like!

Post by: Mellius01 on April 28, 2016 03:52:09 PM
Well, I tried something that didn't work out so good. I had to change course but I'm hoping to be done by the first of next week.

Sorry to hear that, Mellius01!  It's always iffy with a new thing (heck, sometimes it's iffy even with things I know how to do, like the one time I forgot to add the flour to the cookie recipe... but we don't talk about that!).

Yesterday I ... fell (pulled by a puppy - a big puppy! - at an adoption event) and thought I might have seriously hurt my hand.  After icing it last night, I think it's all superficial, no broken bones, but I still have to take it easy, so nothing happening this week, craft-wise! :(

Get better smeddley!  :o Just rest the hand!

I have one and a half items done. I'm not happy with the second one. It looks really rough and MEH. Might scrap it and make another one...


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: puzzled-penguin on May 02, 2016 07:31:35 AM
Hope you're getting better Smeddley!

Technically I'm finished my items but I might change one a bit or add an extra.

Post by: roler on May 02, 2016 07:35:02 AM
Yikes!  Hurting a hand is no fun at all; hope yours gets better quickly, Smeddley!

I'm afraid I might be cutting it close on this one... I just finished hosting a house guest from out of the country for a week, and now I have some HUGE commissions for work that just came out of the blue, and I can't afford to turn them down!  I'm doing my best to finish them quickly so I can get back to crafting!

Post by: fatewineroses on May 02, 2016 11:15:03 AM
I finished one item completely. I am working slowly but steadily on the second item. Creation of both of the items left might be slightly delayed. BFs ex had a family crisis, so we have the boys for the week and I have a trip planned this coming up weekend to my Mom's with the BF and the boys (first time there). So I might be crafting down to the wire; but expect to be done on time.

I'm a little behind but I'm on track to finish and send on time. It's been a bit of a crazy week.

Post by: Helena Puck on May 05, 2016 07:07:49 PM
Still working. First one down completely. Two more in the works. First one took me a little longer than I thought it would. Plus, the whole family caught a stomach virus. I hope to get the package out in time.

I've planned out all my crafts and gathered supplies, but I'm still frantically trying to meet some deadlines for work before I can actually take the time to MAKE the stuff!!  I'm going to try my best to be on time but it looks like I may be late - so sorry!!

Post by: IsikkahJai on May 08, 2016 11:09:15 AM
I keep having stuff interrupt my crafting so now I'm sweating bullets trying to get stuff done. My second item came out like MREH so I'll have to re-do it.

Its been super busy around here the last month with my sister moving in and a way overdue spring cleaning. I have one item finished and working on the others. I should be able to get everything sent out on time.

Post by: Smeddley on May 09, 2016 04:16:35 PM
I'm waffling on extending the deadline, because I'm behind... stupid hand... it's still not quite right.  But if I do that I'll just put it off longer.  If you're going to be late, just stay in contact and get it done as soon as possible!


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: roler on May 10, 2016 01:42:46 AM
I certainly wouldn't mind an extension! ;P  I'm definitely going to be late, but I'll try to get it done by the weekend!


Title: Re: Three Tiny Movie Things Round 5 (SU Closed, SO 5/11)
Post by: Smeddley on May 10, 2016 07:01:46 AM
Okay, I'm going to extend the deadline when I get home tonight (too hard to format/edit on my phone) to next Wednesday, because so many people are behind.

One of the reasons I don't like to do it is because of the people who make the deadline, kinda like it's unfair that they managed and don't get extra credit, but I promise to write something extra special nice in your feedback (it's not much, but...  it's all I can do!).

So, one reprieve! One more weekend! Make it count! :)

Thanks so much, Smeddley! And I totally understand about feeling bad for the people who were on time... I'll try hard not to keep my partner waiting too much longer!

Finished 2nd item yesterday and working on the 3rd today. I should be able to finish up tonight and send out tomorrow.

An extension? You mean I finally sent early? Yay!

I sent to fatewineroses today. Her package should arrive on Friday. I sent a message to y'all with the tracking number.

Thank you for the extension, I had just sent a message to my partner and Smeddley that I was going to be late sending due to a crisis at work but read that we have an extension. YAY!!!

Awesome! Gallery set to notify! XD  Can't wait to see it fill up! :)

I just finally finished my first item. It took a lot longer than expected, but I'm happy with the results!  I'm gonna get started on the next thing right away, and then take the rest of the supplies up to Tokyo with me on a trip, and mail them from there on the new due date.  Yeesh this month has been busy, but it felt great to finally take some time to craft!
