First AMV you ever saw (if you remember): xianpower's "Bitches!"

What do you look for most in an AMV: I like to see (hear) songs that I like, and might not be used much. I also like to see/hear anime/song combinations that would prove interesting. But technically speaking, I like videos that don't focus on one thing. I like my videos to encompass many different qualities: A little action here, a little lip sync there, add a little emotion, bake for 15 minutes at 350°F, serves four people :wink:

Who(if anyone) inspired to yo create AMV's: Hmm....I guess it was all the people who made really shitty ones. I felt that I could do better, so I set off to do so.

What is your favorite type of AMV: I don't know what I like, but I know I like it when I see it. I can't just spew out a blanket genre, because I'm sure I won't like a large number of them.

On average how much time do you spend on a single video: I find I'm gradually taking longer on each video I do, mostly because I'm taking more time to be more precise in what I do. My first video took me a continuous 8 hours, and the latest video I've completed took me a few days, spanning the time of a month.

Do you fell that winning awards makes you a *master*: No. I believe being a master would be when people want to model their videos after yours, or when there's a style of editing named after you.

Do you see AMV's as an art form: You could argue that it's nothing but art. Music is art, and anime is art, so AMVs are a hybrid form of both of those arts. Some people make AMVs that have deep meaning, a message the creator wants to get across. Other videos are just fun, or the message is so obvious that you don't have to think about the video, just enjoy it. So, my answer would be yes and no.

Does negative feedback cause you to become less inclined to create more videos: Well, what little feedback I get is rarely negative. And I don't view it as negative, just as critizism. It's something that the view didn't really get or like about the video, so they wanted to tell me. It's great that people do that, because it lets you know how your video is thought of. I think anything between the extremes of "YOU ROCK!!!" and "YOU SUCK!!!" are welcome by me. Also, I don't usually let the negative feedback affect me. I'm not going to change my video just because someone doesn't like a part of it. Although, I have had people mention things that I felt the same about, and it's nice to know that some people feel the same way of my videos as I do. So, in a sense, negative feedback doesn't bother me. I'll still make AMVs until I don't want to anymore.

Do competitions mean the world to you: Competitions are nice and all, and who doesn't want the ego boost! But truthfully, winning an award would pale in comparison to someone e-mailing you, or seeing you at a convention, and telling you how much they enjoyed your video, and how much it meant to them.

Omni Strata Studios = The Eternal Heaven

First name: Joseph (not real name...)

Alias: OmniStrata (that's my studio, my pen-name is a pun on my initials - 2JA) [AV] stands for Anime Vision/Visual...

:D

Email: pilotakito@hotmail.com
website: http://fly.to/pilotakito

First AMV Seen: Tim Park's Ranma Kombat or Death and more Death, OR Maboroshi Studios' Information High. Not quite sure however...

What do I find in an AMV: Fast cuts. Clean execution on either the beat or the lyrics. If I notice a lack of scene change within 5 seconds, the song is either very slow (making it still on beat. this is good) or the creator is still new. The music too is a HUGE factor in my grades for it, although now, it's not as big these days.

Who inspired me: Jay R. Locke (Aokakesu Digital) :D

Favorite AMV Type: DANCE!

Time spent on most videos: usually between the 20-50 hour mark. Depends mostly on the number of fx a vid uses. More fx / beats to synch means more time needed.
:shock:

Does winning awards make me a master: Once I get 30+ awards and a name that's recognizable, then MAYBE. Probably not though. I have over 50 martial arts tournament trophies and I'm still too modest that I can't call myself master. ^_^

AMV = Art Form: Yes. I believe they are very beautiful and difficult works of art to achieve. Still, nothing in my eyes beats the multimedia splendor of the Japanese Shueishiga MADs. :P

Does Negative Feedback hurt me: Nah. It may anger me a bit. Not at the givers, but more myself. It drives me to work harder to make better things. There's no way a single or a group of people can tell me negative feedback and cause me to stop. I'll stop when I damn well feel like it.

Do Competitions mean the world to me: More than you think. If I made vids for only myself, then I wouldn't be here. I make vids for people to see and what better way to show ur skillz then at a competition. I won't cry/moan at all in the forums (maybe my journal :P) if I lose. But hey, you can't win them all. All one can do when falling down is what? GET RIGHT BACK UP AND KEEP ON GOING!

Thanks for this thread. I hope now you know a bit more bout me.

later all!

have fun

:D :) :( :o :shock: :? 8) :lol:

First AMV you ever saw (if you remember):
Gohons exploasion(castor troy : vegita insane)


What do you look for most in an AMV: I look to see if there is any hidden messages . I try to see what the maker was trying to do , or what type of effort he might have put into it.


Who(if anyone) inspired to yo create AMV's: Cator Troy (Vegita Insane)

What is your favorite type of AMV:
Artistic / rock

On average how much time do you spend on a single video: Has much time has i feel nappropriate till it is a great piece of work.(i never stop reediting and remakeing it.

Do you fell that winning awards makes you a *master*: All winning awards does is makes you more none , shows you've acomplished what others couldnt , and you were the better person.

Do you see AMV's as an art form: Yes , Art is an expression of someons talents right, well this is just one more form of expression of course its an art!!!

Does negative feedback cause you to become less inclined to create more videos: No it does no tit makes me look over and review to see if i can make it better , It also reminds you your no thas great has you think you may be.

Do competitions mean the world to you: Well since i havent felt im good enough to enter any competitions yet and there are not many around me i can't say . However like any competition if you win it just shows you were better at that point but perhaps not the next time around so don't become over confident.

First AMV you ever saw (if you remember): my first AMV i had ever saw was Hsien Lee's Maxwell Murder AMV and it was also that same video that inspired me to start making AMV's of my own.

What do you look for most in an AMV: what the soul pourpus of the video and what it is trying to tell the viewer.

Who(if anyone) inspired to yo create AMV's: Hsien Lee was my main inspiration but theres serveral others as well like Joe from Maboroshi, Kevin Caldwell, MJ (mexicanjunior), Machine (Carlos Corral) and several others.

What is your favorite type of AMV: action/comedy

On average how much time do you spend on a single video: a good month but it doesnt always turn out good, even if i spend that much time on it.

Do you feel that winning awards makes you a *master*: GOOD GOD NO!! being good at making AMV's does not make u a master, its doing your best and continueing to do what we love to do and thats making AMV's.

Do you see AMV's as an art form: yes i do. in my opinion, art is your own creativity placed in a composition, thats what a AMV is.

Does negative feedback cause you to become less inclined to create more videos: nope, not at all. getting negitive feedback only helps me, it helps me so i know what NOT to do in the future.

Do competitions mean the world to you: competitions mean nothing to me but having fun and seeing where your AMV will go. im not very interested in competitions but it does how ever incourage myself and others to making AMV's or start making them. i dont enter contest to win, i enter them to have fun and see what other AMV's are like.

well thats about all that there is to know about me. ^_^

First AMV you ever saw (if you remember): Blue Mercury by William Milberry

What do you look for most in an AMV: I look for concepts and ideas in the video. I love it when a video has a really good idea and when the creator executes the idea well. I also like videos that are just edited really well, and I love it when a video has both.

Who(if anyone) inspired to yo create AMV's: Aluminum Studios

What is your favorite type of AMV: Dance and sometimes Drama

On average how much time do you spend on a single video: It depends on the video, but on my last one I spent over 40 hours, but only in the span of a week or so.

Do you fell that winning awards makes you a *master*: Not necessarlily. Although it means your video is probably pretty good, you might have not had much competetion, or some of the better videos might not have been entered. There are only a few people who can call themselves masters anyway, most people can improve at least a little.


Do you see AMV's as an art form:
Yes. Creativity is a very big thing in editing AMV's, as it is in all other art forms. I also think it's a great way for expressing emotion.

Does negative feedback cause you to become less inclined to create more videos: If anything, it makes me more inclined. I think about what the reviewer doesn't like, and I think about whether I agree with the comments. If I do, I try to put that new bit of learning in my future videos. This is part of how I improve. If the negative feedback isn't constructive critisism, it might make me feel bad or get mad at the reviewer for not giving me reasons for his/her scores. Mostly I try to learn from any negative feedback and tell myself it doens't matter if other people don't like my videos, they're my creations made for mainly myself.

Do competitions mean the world to you: I've never entered a contest before, and I don't really intend to either. One reason being I live far, far away from the nearest contest and another being I don't want to get too competitive with my videos. I want my videos to stay fun and nothing more.




I hope this information is useful to you :D

Fav. Anime: Way too much to list since I've been into Anime heavily since 1984.

First AMV you ever saw (if you remember): Some in the Contest at Anime Expo in 1994.

What do you look for most in an AMV: Trying different things out and making a video I enjoy and has some meaning.

Who(if anyone) inspired to yo create AMV's: Conventions! Been making videos since 1987 so it inspired me to make several MAVs in 1994. Anime Expo inspired me to enter contests. First videos that blew me away was from Kevin Cadwell. Prior to 1994, I didn't realize or know that so many others made AMVs.

What is your favorite type of AMV: Dramatic followed by Action

On average how much time do you spend on a single video: Anywhere from 20-40 hours on some, up to 500+ hours on very special ones.

Do you fell that winning awards makes you a *master*: I make them to learn new things and for the enjoyment of others. Several of my videos have won in contests, but I still get the best enjoyment from when people see them at conventions. I think we are all masters in some sort of way...

Do you see AMV's as an art form: Yes

Does negative feedback cause you to become less inclined to create more videos: Not negative feedback, but negative threads or responces in dicussion groups. I think we could all like without the arguing and finger pointing...

Do competitions mean the world to you: Not really, just having them played to an audiance is more important. These days to do that you have to make the cut so a bit of competition is required.

What would you consider as your best work thus far: My newest video (entered into Otakon) followed by Memories Dance (Miyazaki tribute) followed by Destiny of the Dark (Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust).

First AMV you ever saw (if you remember): It was an anonymous Sailor Moon video set to "Carry On". But the one that really started it all was Blue Mercury by Aluminum Studios

What do you look for most in an AMV: I like a lot of action/ good editing sync in a video as well as originality. Effort is also a big thing I look for. I'm not so much looking for a "perfect" video, more just something that is eye-catching or strikes me as "above-average".

Who(if anyone) inspired to yo create AMV's: William Millberry (Alumimum Studios)

What is your favorite type of AMV: Mostly Action/Fun, sometimes Drama/Sentimental/Artistic

On average how much time do you spend on a single video: 75-100+ hours, in about a few weeks - a few months (practically 24-7 if it's a fun project!^_^)

Do you feel that winning awards makes you a *master*: I will never consider myself a master at anything I do because as soon as I make something, I know that I can make something that is 10 times better. I will always keep trying to get better and better no matter what anyone says.

Do you see AMV's as an art form: Definately. I'm a very artsy person and I love doing this kind of thing.

Does negative feedback cause you to become less inclined to create more videos: Never. I might feel offended for a few seconds but negative opinions will always help to lead me in the right direction for future videos, and that's all I care about anyway.

Do competitions mean the world to you: I have never even seriously thought about entering a competition (not yet, anyway). I don't really know what they're like, but it would be kind of cool to win honourable mention for something I created. ^_^

It's neat knowing where all the people on this site are from. It's a cool idea of you to do this, Hakura. ^_^
