Over the years there's been plenty of times when people in the AMV scene have made cool shit with things other than anime. Some of it is even on this site, sneakily hiding among the anime stuff. Some of the early music videos on this site have so little anime content that you could argue they weren't amvs (Brad DeMoss, I'm looking at you ) There used to be a lot of arguments over things like con reports and documentaries and all kinds of stuff, not just other sorts of music videos.
As for the floods of OT material, I just think that's bull. If you made such a subforum, I doubt anyone who isn't in the amv community would use it. Why would they advertise their work to people who wouldn't really care about it? The whole point of communities is to share with like-minded individuals - in this case amv makers. We post stuff on here to show our friends and to show people who would get it and imo only the "other cool shit by amvers" is relevant.
So there's amv makers who make other things. Some of them are live action videos. They want to share those with other like minded amvers.
My vote would be to simply have a Other Cool Video Shit by AMV Folks forum and amv makers can post their other cool shit to their hearts content.
Don't fear the movie and tv studios. They honestly don't give a fuck compared to the music industry who you already have dealings with. I know someone is going to mention moderation, so yes there will need to be ground rules about appropriate content but there's already rules like that on the forum as a whole. Just say on the forum "spam this and it gets removed" and that will be warning enough.
