This is a cool idea 8D How you got into AMVs:
Phew, omg, my dark dark past lol When I was like 15 (so 9 years ago, time flies), I was active in an Anime forum. Especially a club called 'AAML', which centered around the epic love of Ash and Misty in Pokemon (I dare you to oppose me on this!!!!). Anyway, one of the members there showed us an AMV about them, and I wanted to make my own. So I started editing with WMM and shitty screenshots and pixelish footage. My, it was amazing!How you came up with your screen name:
When I was 16, I spent a year in Venezuela, South America. Shortly before I left, I read an article in a newspaper about the only five surviving condors (you know, dat bird xD) in that country. One of them was named Anicsi
, which means Moon Goddess, according to the article. I wanted a name that would have a bond to my experience there. Easy peasy, eh? xp How you discovered the Org:
I was a n00b and I needed help. Google's your best friend.Tell me about your studio, like how you joined/created it, etc...
(If you're not in a studio, say why
I was in EndlessLifeStudios for a while. When the leaders decided to disband it, we were quite shocked and sad. A few of us wanted to stick together. We wanted to create a studio that wouldn't be so much about fame or perfection, but just a couple of friends editing together. We're all kinda crazy and some of us have quit editing, but we still spend time in the chats, and we can always ask for help regarding editing. The most important thing for us is trust. I know the people in the studio would never think of leaving to join a more prestigious studio. Call us cheesy, but that's why we're called Fidelity Studios
, and I wouldn't change my studio mates for anything in the world Favorite genre to edit and why:Drama, Sentimental, Romance.
Because I'm a raw editor mostly, and emotion and story is my way to go. I like tackling my problems or questions by turning my feelings into a video. Favorite newbie mistake you've made:
(Give us a good cringe-worthy one!)
I have to say I've never been an effect whore. But of course the footage quality sucked and watermarks and tons of crossfades and generally too long scenes and... urgh *shivers*First contest experience:
Otakon 2009? i think. Possibly. Unfortunately I couldn't be there myself.Best experience you've had thus far with the community:
Generally the people here are very helpful when it comes to editing related questions. I don't know how many times Kionon saved my ass in the Mac section. I'll be eternally grateful. Worst experience with the community:
I can't really say I've had a particularly bad experience on the org. I just don't like the competitive and elitist attitude of some people. I edit for fun. With friends. Of course I want to make it as good as I can, but there is a difference in mindset. Why you edit:
(If you don't edit anymore, explain yo'self!)
It's my way of emotional outlet. I've been editing less and less, though. Future goals:
(Editing, non-editing, whatevers)
I have a list (yes, a list) of projects, I'd like to do. There are about 35 videos on that list. I write an idea down whenever I have it. But unfortunately, I don't think i'll complete even 5 percent of those. I've been getting a bit frustrated with editing lately. I'd like to become better in technical aspects and create more story-line focused works that I can call my own. But i don't have the time for that. Next year I'll graduate Uni and i'll be freaking busy. I don't know if i'll have the time to edit at all. So... we'll see.
Sorry, this got kinda long lol
