I thought this would be an interesting topic, as this is exactly what I am. I have been making AMVs since 2009, however, none of them I have ever shared except with my brother, and he makes AMVs, too (we also collab a lot as well). All of our videos have practically been for our own entertainment, and sadly, we don't have very many friends into anime whom we can share it with! Well, recently when going to Anime Conji and for the first time seeing the AMV Contest, we've decided we should enter contests together so our future AMVs can finally see the light of day.
So, I was wondering, what about any of you? Have any of you been editing for years, yet just never shared your work? If so, for how long and why?
