This is the thread where we inflate already massive egos talk about our favorite editors and how they and other people we know in the community have influenced us or have helped us to improve our editing over the years.
Who are some of your favorite editors?
Who here in the community has offered a lot constructive feedback that helped you to improve your editing?
If by community you mean all the AMVWorld... Then those will be Zevs, Trampler, Safira, Creed, Nyala... And in terms of feedback, AimoAio, El-Tjan, Ikore... Now if we talk this site as 'the community'... Then I don't have a favorite editor and neither I consider anyone here as a good influence for me
Chiikaboom has always been one of my favorite editors. I can't really say that she has influenced me since our usual editing styles are almost polar opposites, but I remember the day when I first saw her Bellicos AMV over 5 years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s42OGpnBSxM I was so impressed by it that I immediately decided that I was gonna try to step up my game and become a better editor. I think that's when I really became serious about AMV editing.
I could make a huge list of editors which I look up to in a way. There are too many. But if I'd have to name three it'd be Ileia, Kisanzi & umks[z].
Also Calldwell, Aokakesu, Absolute Destiny, JCD, ScorpionP, Koop, Bakadeshi, Wormwood, Copycat Revolver, alkampfer81, Tyler, Decoy, Requiett, Shepperd, ZephyrStar, Scorpions Ultd., DokiDoki, Fall_Child, JaddzaDax, Vlad, OtakuLounge, Evilspider, Zarxrax, Malificus, Suberunker, Reznic, Scintilla, Aceman, p0d, blabbler... ok I'll stop here for now. There are a lot more though.

Ileia is my favorite. She always has consistent vids with great internal synch and lots of well thought out and clever concepts. There are a lot of shallow vids out there that have been done over and over again, and she avoids that and thinks outside the box. A majority of my favorite vids have been from her.
