AMVs and Hobbies

Postby TritioAFB » Mon Feb 24, 2014 10:13 pm

How important are AMVs compared to other hobbies you have?

If you could choose between AMVs and other hobbies what will you choose?

What other hobbies do you have rather than AMVs?

At my case: They bring balance between the stress of an Hospital and the stress of doing right the job :up:

I play video games, a hobby I picked up after starting amvs...
If I had a choice it would depend on my mood..
I need more hobbies.

I started making music some years ago, and stopped with AMVs because of that.
Now that I felt confident in my music production skills I turn back to AMVs for a while to make those few Videos I've always wanted to do.
After I finished them I'll probably just enjoy AMVs as a watcher rather than editing.

So yeah, it has priority now but won't forever.

My only other hobby is making music and playing guitar/doing vocals.

I game a little bit but not nearly enough to be classified as a gamer.

So yeah, AMVs/editing in general is pretty much at the top of up there with my other hobbies.

Compared to other hobbies, AMVs are still at the forefront of my hobby list, as I participate in a lot of contests and help run convention-length AMV rooms every year.

Well, since I was heavily into classic gaming before and during my time with the AMV hobby, it's still something I spend a lot of time on.

I play Magic (and very occasionally Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokemon), join in Pathfinder and D&D campaigns, collect and play a variety of video games (mostly vintage), and I participate in non-AMV Japanese fandom convention panels and events along with the AMV ones. I really have a lot of hobbies. >_>

I play videogame. Right now I'm a passionate DOTA 2 player. I really like getting down into the details of the game and getting better.

I've been doing the PnP RPG thing since college (DnD, WoD stuff, BESM d20, etc). I'm currently running Expedition to Castle Ravenloft for a group of friends while we have a hiatus in my buddy's Werewolf the Appocolypse campaign. I play board games a bunch and I'm trying to get into the new MLP CCG (waiting for players at a game store as I type this). That's about all I have for real hobbies outside of AMVs

Back when I actually got videos done, AMVs was the biggest hobby I ever got into so it was pretty important.

Nowadays it's just gaming like most people here.

For the last 14+ years AMVs have been my biggest hobby. Since the past year and a half or so I've slowed down quite a bit. I sorta just stick around though and do other AMV related things (judge contests, staffing, org redesign...).

The last 6 months or so I've been more interested in the driving/car enthusiast culture... Working on my car is rather fulfilling and another outlet to express myself (also really expensive ;_;).
Like the AMV .Org App? Think about donating to help me make it better.

Video editing seems to be one of the only creative hobbies I never fell out of. I've gone through dry spells here and there, but this is one thing that I honestly love to do. The other hobby I'm still very much passionate about is editing graphics in PS.

As of right now I've been slowly coming back to old hobbies. Since I built the new computer I've rediscovered my love for gaming, and I am trying to get back into other creative hobbies such as writing and sketching.

Well I just got back into AMV's the 7 years when I was editing and just a coordinator for conventions, I was playing Magic the Gathering, Naruto CCG and D&D. Also Bowling on Leagues and can't forget writing lyrics for songs, now I just need to find a band. However AMV's have been a part of my life for close to 12 years now. It's nice to be back editing again.
No matter what, stay calm, stay cool and live life to the fullest.
Plus as Gene would say always go big in life.
