Hi there ^^ I was interested in seeing who all is a Canadian creator ^^ There are so many from the US that I thought it would be cool to see the talent from the good old North ^^
Now I have personaly met some of you including Tim (Doki Doki) and Nailz I believe I say you at AN? I know I saw someone else there ^^ Oh yeah and Jay (Aokakesu) I know there was more from AN but any way why not share some info.
I wanted to make a page on my site deticated to Canadian AMV creators so why not start here ^^
To American's and otherwise, feel free to also anwser this questioaire, just please tell me where in the US or other wise you are from so I can add you too ^^
If you don't mind please post some info, leave out some stuff if you so wish ^^ Thanks a lot ^^
Also general discussion would be great too ^^
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
First AMV you ever saw (if you remember):
Blue Mercury (Aluminum Studios)
What do you look for most in an AMV:
I look first and formost for effort, and what the creator is trying to show you. I don't really look for how the music fits with the anime, I look at what the creator did with the video/song and their interpertation.
Video quality doesn't always mean *quality*. A good work is in the eyes of the person viewing it. No one will like everything. I also look for if there is a hidden meaning to the video and how well it flows. Everyone is different and that's what makes us unique.
Who(if anyone) inspired to yo create AMV's:
Will (Aluminum Studios),
What is your favorite type of AMV:
On average how much time do you spend on a single video:
50-100+ hours usually spanned over 1-6 months.
Do you fell that winning awards makes you a *master*:
No, there is no such thing as a master, just people who gradualy gain more expirence in the field.
Do you see AMV's as an art form:
Yes, I think of them as a way I can express myself in a visual form. I could go really in depth with this, but I won't for the time being.
Does negative feedback cause you to become less inclined to create more videos:
No not at all. I will always stand by the fact that I make them for me, and no one else. If others like them that is great ^^ If they don't that's ok as well ^^ Sure people can be harsh with words, but you need to tell your self "Who cares" as long as *you* like it and are happy with it, that's the main point.
Do competitions mean the world to you:
Nope. I see them as a way to see my work on the big screen ^^ It's also great to see people reactions, winning is just an added bonus ^^
Well there you have it ^^ A lot of questions but your imput is needed ^^
Thanks in advance to anyone who does this it's a big help to me! ^^
