I thinking about quitting making amv

Postby Okaketsu92 » Wed Jun 12, 2013 2:13 am

I been thinking about stop making amv I don't know why I cannot make another amv, when I start to thinking about amv then I just stop. For some reason make another amv I just give up on the idea I don't just try at all and I don't know What to do anymore, I just think about giving up making amv. So what should I do just give up or just move forward keep making amv? Have an great day and thank you for reading this.

didn't you just start making videos? i wouldn't count a few months as a 'long time' for a break.

i struggle with this a lot, not just in editing but in a lot of other fields. ultimately you're not going to solve the problem if you stop making AMVs. what is it about making videos that stops you from putting more work into them? is there a way that you can perhaps come up with an idea that you think would be easy enough to do?

you could have just hit a block. wait for the inspiration to come on its own. if you try to force an amv then you won't enjoy it and it'll most likely show in your work.

Make something different. Last AMV I made was in .... 2008?
But I also worked on Ponies Anthologies and a bunch of other random stuff inbetween.
Including a movie. That is still ongoing. |:>

At your case my friend, I believe this is more like a Block. Just relax, think about any different activity, and let the imagination flow from you. If you like too much the song and the idea, you should be able to get back to the video once your inspiration is back.
