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 ...

Re: 2013 VCA General Discussions

Cheating in this type of contest with no actual prize is rather idiotic as you pretty much nullify the prize itself. Welcome to the Internet! If the .Org has smaller voter pool this year such that a group of folks can bring to light the pitfalls of the VCAs in a new and interesting way...the fact r...

Re: 2013 VCA Status Updates and Schedules

Don't recall, but for some reason it went down easier this year. Think of this as a belated thanks for last year's improvements. :D

This may not be ... well... let me explain: http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/6959/aliceposter.jpg There is so much packed into this video, and it happens and all comes together because of the effects used.

Re: Best Use of Special Effects

189637 x2 The special effects in this video take the it to another level. The simplicity of the effect focuses the viewer in on the non-effect aspects of the AMV, rather than being a distraction or there for mere eye candy (in fact, this could be considered a rather non-attractive effect, in and of...
