Well, I used to be so into AMVs that I kept a damned journal.
Out of these.. 100 ideas, I think, 90% of them have been scrapped before even getting the DVDs/CDs together.
A few ideas actually go into storyboarding because I do not have the footage and/or song handy. This holds true for two AMVs, currently. (Although one of them isn't anime, it's a real video thing that I'll probably never be able to complete).
I also storyboarded a really old AMV of mine called "Challenges", before it went anywhere. Although the storyboards had NOTHING to do with the finished product. So in essense, it was sort of scrapped, as challenges actualy evolved from a totally different AMV idea that was more autobiographical than anything (it was a planned "Last AMV" of sorts).
Recently, however, I have started more AMVs that I scrap after beginning to make them. Mostly this is because I run out of footage.
I think this is in order...
"Story of an Android" was a Earthian AMV to Cell's theme from DBZ. I got half way through it before I decided it was a sucky idea, and too repetative (those who remember betas.. I think only Devolution and YSCTR... will tell you how badly it sucked).
The FFVI Project's "Mog's Theme" using Mokona was scrapped because I ran out of images of Mokona EXACTLY half way through it.
"Underground" was a trigun/Ladykillers trailer and was scrapped because I lost it all in a reformat (:roll:) and I was too lazy to try again. (although I probably will a few years from now, cause I really liked it)
Knives' View was scrapped because I lost everything after the reformat
"Cloud's Sentiment" Was scrapped because the same exact thing happened with a totally different reformat from "Knives' View". (Yet both the betas for these are uploaded)
Wolf's Rain Yaoi AMV was scrapped because I ran out of Tsume x Toboe footage (this was actually going to be a submition for Yaoicon this year).
"Macs" isn't scrapped yet, because I really really like it, but it probably will be scrapped on acount of no footage.
So, the ones I scrapped after they were on the computer I remember. Always. Because I worked hard on them. X|
I have all the scrapped in the idea process written down somewhere. I should take pictures of my AMV Idea journal someday. It's got X's all over it. XD
And you'd laugh at some of the INSANE ideas. =p
