First AMV you ever saw (if you remember):
Dragon Ball Z - Blink 182, Don't Leave Me (don't know who did it, but I d'led it from a schoolmate's computer and yeah)
What do you look for most in an AMV:
I look at two things: one, the overall effect, be it artistic or comedic or psychadelic or whatever, and two, how well something is made, i.e. if there are any errors in the process, like mismatched lipsyncing or missed timings. Being a trained musician for 17 of my 21 years, I have a very discerning eye, and as I watch a video, if I find myself thinking about how I could make it better, to me, it's can't be more than just a good video. But if I'm lost in the video and am not thinking about things like that, it's a great video. :^) I know this all sounds kind of snotty/elitist, and I apologize for that, but that's just my way if determining whether I think a video is good or not.
Who(if anyone) inspired to yo create AMV's:
What is your favorite type of AMV:
On average how much time do you spend on a single video:
25-50+ hours usually spanned over 1-3 months.
Do you fell that winning awards makes you a *master*:
There are two types of masters: the young ones and the old ones. The young ones are people like Ermac who come in with his first video and it is something that wins awards all over, thus gaining him recognition for his skills, making him a master. An old master are people like EK or Brad DeMoss or Maboroshi, who are not necessarily old of age but have been making music videos for quite some time, such that they have the experience that every video they make is good.
Do you see AMV's as an art form:
Oh hell yes. It's a form of expression, just as much as any opera or movie.
Does negative feedback cause you to become less inclined to create more videos:
Hehehehe... as long as the majority of the feedback isn't negative, no. Anyone who receives more negative reactions than not would be disheartened... I just hope that doesn't happen to me once I get the many videos *I've already created* finally online!!!
Do competitions mean the world to you:
Not really, although I do value them extremely. It's good to see how people react to one's video. Hell, I've been able to move on with my life out of a 7-month funk due to the emotional reaction I received to one of my videos at AnimeIowa last year. (Long story.
There's my two cents. Love and peace!
