Re: The AWA 2014 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

My votes are in and I agree, there were more than a few toss-ups. XYZ video is good in these areas, but not so good in others...but this other one IS good in those other areas, just not good enough in yet OTHER areas. Made me think hard about my votes. I may not personally love the "best" ...

Re: The AWA 2014 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

I have no knowledge of past years, but is it the case that the final categories were deemed to offer opportunities to videos nominated in categories that did NOT make the cut? In this case, there are non-anime videos the judges felt are very strong contenders for another category and therefore don't...

Re: The AWA 2014 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

Alright, finally had time to sit down and watch all the Pro videos. Decided to go with a different kind of viewing experience this time. I watched all the videos on my Oculus Rift in the Riftmax VR Cinema. The experience was pretty neat itself. Anywho, here's my ratings: See this right here is a re...

Re: The AWA 2014 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

My general feedback, given what I've seen so far, is that it's really unfortunate how much poor-quality footage is in this "pro" contest. Shocking even, though maybe my assumptions about AWA Pro were too high to begin with (I don't think they were, though, or should be). Ok, so spent the p...

Downloading now, my thanks to whoever is seeding! Whew, I haven't watched this many AMVs in a big chunk (at home) for years!

I'm in, first time! Never had something new this time of year before!

Unfortunately, I just realized I uploaded a bad encode... Not sure if we get do-overs. :x

Re: A Way

I had a somewhat similar reaction as Rider, although it occurred over the length of the first watch-through rather than multiple viewings. A lot of opportunity for watching and thinking in this video, which for me is a two-edged sword. If I'm thinking , I'm not as wrapped up in the AMV as I could be...

Re: Your Life Story

How you got into AMVs: When FF8 came out, I was infatuated with that game even though I had no means to play it. For a long time my "fix" was watching and rewatching (26 times a day, at one count) an "AMV" using the FMV cutscenes. I didn't know what the term AMV was and I had no...

Re: AMV Editing: A dying hobby (?)

Survival of the fittest, hey hey here we are. There's an ebb and flow to everything, it's just really uncomfortable to be in a position to see the decline of something and unable to do much about it. The tide's against us, surely, but we weren't paddling all that hard to begin with. AMVs make me fee...

Re: Once Upon a Time on Gunsmoke

Greatly enjoyed beta testing this and I am very pleased that you finally fixed that moon, after much nagging. :P It certainly evolved quite a bit from when I first saw it, and all for the better - I kind of wish I'd known more about what you were going for, some of my feedback would have been phrase...

Re: [Anime North 2013 Best In Show] madokaAV

Just so you know, this is now my defining AMV for Madoka. It's well edited, I love that you took a rather complex, twisted concept that was both like and unlike the series and totally ran with it. Talk about #AMVReview fodder... people can dig as deep into this as they want and probably come up with...

Re: In your opinion, how long does it take to make a great A

Months/weeks can be deceiving. Someone can edit for 20 hours a week and finish an 80-hour AMV up in a month, while someone else who only can get 5 hours a week in is going to take "longer." Heck, some people have spent years on videos, and sometimes it shows, sometimes not. Of course, the ...
