AWA Pro & DDR Project 2 Videos - Online

Postby VegettoEX » Mon Sep 30, 2002 8:50 pm

Both of these videos are by myself (Michael "VegettoEX" LaBrie) and Meredith "Meri" Cantoni. They are listed under both of our profiles because there is no system in the database for entering collaboration videos (more than one creator). Due to this, the same video is listed under two accounts. Both videos have direct download links, are stored on fast university accounts, and are in MPEG-1 format.

"Smoke" (Rurouni Kenshin; Mr Ed. Jumps the Gun - "Smoke"; DDR Project 2 Track 7)

http://www.animemusicvideos.org/legacy/ ... hp?v=11324
http://www.animemusicvideos.org/legacy/ ... hp?v=11326

"Alone in the World" (Trigun; Simple Plan - "I'm Just a Kid")
Winner: Professional Contest - Best Character Profile

http://www.animemusicvideos.org/legacy/ ... hp?v=11328
http://www.animemusicvideos.org/legacy/ ... hp?v=11329

If by some random chance you actually want to leave a review on any of them, please leave an identical review on both entries.

ATTN: Those who got our AMV Compilation CD-R at AWA--

The style sheet on the "VegettoEX" page seems to.. uhh... have not gotten applied, so the page looks like crap. The "Collaborative" main link on the "VegettoEX" page is also broken. Other than that, I think everything else is in perfect working order. The HTML files look like crap, in general, on Macs but that's not our fault :P.

I still can't believe you two pulled that track off - not only that, but did an awesome job with it and made a really fun video :)
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

Hsien & Turboneko:

Thanks so much! I'm glad to hear you liked how Smoke turned out. Thank god it wasn't the disaster I imagined it would be. I loved your tracks, too. :D Very, very, VERY enjoyable all around, throughout the entire project. I'm looking forward to showing the DDR project to my school's anime club when we all get copies. :twisted:

Meri and Mike:

You did a fabulous job. I don't have to write alot to say this. You are two VERY talented AMV makers (especially since you turned "Smoke" into a good video :) ). Meri, you are my inspiration. Thank you. Mike, well since your Meri's boyfriend I'm of course your friend. Keep up the good work! Congrats on winning Best Character Profile too! You deserved it!!!!!!

Damn, but that "Smoke" is a good video! Duplicate opinions left, as requested. it's such a good effort that I've taken back a step from my initial desires to contribute to the next video, as this one is technically very well done!

I haven't viewed the Trigun video, as I've not seen the entire series (donations of domestic DVDs heartily accepted).

You guys are waaay too kind on the "Smoke" video :D. EVERYONE's DDR tracks were SOOO good this year, I couldn't help but feel severely out-classed. We totally appreciate all the good words, though ^^.

amvs are nothing but a fucking digital effects race now. That smoke video could have used any anime and nothing would have changed.

random anime + random effects every time you hear a noise = good amv

...I guess

Ummm...no.

"Smoke" would've sucked with somethin' like Superbook or Fantastic Adventures of Unico. Or DBZ. :twisted:

My initial thought on a good match would've been Giant Robo.

But to say it's all a digital effects race is overstating things. A hell of a good video can still be made with cuts only.

to say it's a dv efx race isn't an overstatement. You just don't see it yet. Soon you'll notice. It's always been going this way and will keep on as long as these geeks beg for more shiny colors.

Heheh, thanks for the kind words (and shameless attention, tee hee!) for the video. Hell, ours is so lacking in effects compared to the other videos in the DDR project. Jeff Heller's, for example, made excellent use of effects to help accentuate the music. Same thing for Eric Kobet, Ian, and Scott's videos, for that matter. But, there were also really awesome "straight-cut" videos in the project that fit songs wonderfully. Hopefully, we'll actually learn some advanced techniques for the next project, and churn out something that will be worthy of a nice dance video.
