Re: Vanilla Rainbows & Comin Where I'm From (AWA Pro)

Damn this is good! Not like these shallow amvs that're wannabe deep but can't convey it because they use childrens shows :D x2 Though some can pull off "deep." Having the anime chops to back up the concept never hurts, though. If someone asked me for a recommendation of AMVs that communic...

Re: Fierce [AWA Pro Best Video]

Ugh, I'm so stupid... I get hyped to watch this again and then remember how sloooooww my Internet connection is (10 minutes to download this one video). THEN I remember that I HAVE all these AWA videos already! *wiggle wiggle wiggle* :awesome: One thing I find very amusing about this video is the co...

Harlock Into Darkness (AWA Pro Finalist)

So! This is the first AMV I've ever made just for fun. It also happened to be the first time I was able to make something new for AWA. Wasn't too bad of an experience, maybe I'll do it again someday (but don't hold your breath). http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y281/Driftroot/Harlock%20Into%20Darkne...

Re: The AWA 2014 Professional Awards Video Review Thread

Sooo.. as should be rather obvious, #69 Harlock was my doing. It's a rather different beast for me, being the first AMV I've ever made just for fun. (Sounds strange, but editing doesn't come easy to me and I'm usually taking on some kind of concept or technical challenge that really pushes me to the...

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!

Re: AWA 2014 Rules The Video Art Track at Anime Weekend Atla

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...
