Green names are the ones i've received. Im still waiting on the others. Yellow means that arrangements have been made.

Confirmed names and titles:

Soul Calibur III - inthesto
Soul Calibur III - Vancore
Metal Gear Solid 3 - shadowNOS
Zelda - Lockstock
Mario - Castor Troy
Tales Of Legendia - aneino_kaijin
Zelda - starcat09
SotC - Psycho1412
SotC - Psycho1412

Kyo Kara Maoh - dimix
Xenosaga - Infinity Squared
WoW - Infinity Squared / snhknives
SotC - dimix
Tales Of Legendia - Arkada
keyboardsamurai - Tekken



Techinical Features of the AMV:

- The most important (and somewhat disappointing) feature of making an AMV to live music, is that it will almost never be in proper sync. Every orchestra will always slightly differ a piece in tempo everytime. With this being said, the AMV can not by a rhythm / beat sync video, but rather a mood sync video. I think Koop created a good example of this for ‘My Neighour Totoro’ for ANIF06.

- Videos should be in a 4:3 aspect ratio. If the video source is widescreen, then it should contain black letterbox along the top and bottom in order to fit the aspect. Refer to the guides to do this.

- It would be best if it could be uploaded as a good quality MPEG2. If not, a high quality xvid or divx is acceptable.

Because of the scale of the project, the protocol for joining / uploading is a bit different.. Once you've emailed me, and its been approved, i'll give details on where to upload beta's etc...


I'm sure i've left out something.. so i'll add on any details later...

Good luck :D

Theres been a bit of confusion in the project. The video source and audio source need to be the same. I.E. if you want to do the music track from Shadow of the Colossus, then your video source would have to be from Shadow of the Colossus. You can not use video or audio from any other titles. The purpose of the video is to provide memorable footage and the feeling of what the music was like when you were playing the game.

And yes, i realise most people want to do final fantasy :lol: , but try to give a 2nd option as well...

And if you have any questions, please post them here so others can be informed...

By kingdom hearts do you mean a collection of kingdom hearts 1 and 2 or just one of them? I just had a listen to the OSTs just then and you got me curious :)

Also, for anyone who wants to do a multi-source trailer, the ANIF07 trailer is also up for grabs, for anyone that is interested... I usually do them myself, but i've taken up a much bigger role in the concert this year...

ok, i am damn interested in this mep, sounds like an awsome concept, few quick questions


you mention the tracks will be from those above titles, ok, i know a couple very good songs from world of warcraft (i should considering i wasted about 10 months of my life on it) but i dont know if those songs will be the ones chosen.

Also, is there any limit to file size, or do we just send in the best possible quality vid we can with no size limit (i wouldnt think so but just making sure). Im asking this cause as you know a lot of vids can end up being hundreds of megs or even several gigs when first made which is why we use the handy Xvid, but if there is no file limit then i wont have to worry about compression

and finally, any particular limits on what you want as far as the anime. I mean in terms of violence and stuff, for instance i am considering the hellsing OVA but its rather bloody and i dont know how sensitive the audience will be. After checking a couple of those videos on their website i am thinking that it wouldnt be really acceptable to be showing a scene where alucard is skewered and has his head cut off, although it would be very nice to see the reaction of the audience hehe

and also same question as person above, you say songs from zelda, ok, which of the numerous zelda games? link to the past? ocarina of time? the new twilight princess (which i have not even seen yet), that would have a huge impact on my choice as the orchestra may end up playing songs from a zelda game which ive never even seen

biggest question is the song one, cant really decide on which of those pieces to pick from if i dont know which songs will be available from each

is it ok to email you the title we would like to choose, but just have that as a tentative choice until we know exactly which songs will be available?

dimix will probaby come in here eventually, but just in case you are anxious for an answer, the Eminence concerts generally match anime/video games with the actual source of the music track (e.g. One Winged Angel would mean the video source used has to be from Final Fantasy 7). In this instance, seeing as how it's the Video Games Edition of the concert, you'll have to look at using sources for the video games music that dimix will let the editors know of. This is simply because, the videos playing in the background to the orchestra serve primarily to allow the audience to reminisce where the music is from and hence complement it.

Yep, Infinity Squared is right...

Oh by the way, there was one thing there that might put some pressure on you guys, that i neglected to mention before hehe...

For alot of the tracks the originial composers themselves will be present.

This includes:

• Yasunori Mitsuda
Composer of Chrono Trigger, Xenogears and Chrono Cross

• Junichi Nakatsuru
Composer of the Soul Calibur series, Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War and Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War

• Hitoshi Sakimoto
Composer of Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

• Masaru Shiina
Composer of Tales of Legendia, Tekken: Dark Resurrection and Ace Combat 3

• Yoko Shimomura
Composer of Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts II and Final Fantasy Versus XIII

• Kow Otani
Composer of Shadow of the Colossus , Haibane Renmei




So yes, the whole reason i posted the MEP early, even before I knew the setlist myself, is to get all the serious offers possible, so in the end, the best editor should have the video, and can show off his work to the original composer himself :P ..

oh btw if any of you are wondering why we dont have Uematsu coming, its cause it seems that 'Play!' took him before we could ask... Oh well, we had him as guest of honour in 2004 anyway, long before play! was even conceived 8-)

wait, so they want source material for these amvs? most of them are video/computer games that have not been made into anime, do they want amvs made from the cutscenes/gameplay scenes for these amvs? because i have very little experience on doing that type of thing, is there a guide for that?

as for things like mario and world of warcraft, that has a very limited amount of actual cinematic scenes, do they want an amv using gameplay scenes for those? I might be able to get some scenes of raids and maybe some battles to use but the quality is not going to be that great, getting fraps from gameplay is not easy to do for good quality, not to mention actually getting good camera views of battles and such is not easy while trying to avoid getting killed a the same time

Yeah, this is the games edition... So no anime this time :lol:
Its going to be either in game footage or FMVs (cinematic scenes)..
Basically you should either capture the game in fraps (or something equivalent) or if you are doing console game, you'll need a TV card to capture the footage. I think the Final fantasy games have FMV rippers though...

i MAY be able to provide footage for some games...

I know that i should be getting a DVD from bandai namco, which contains footage from the 'Tales of...' series.. If anyone is interested in that, please tell me.

I can also provide footage for Shadow of the Colossus, Katamari, Metal Gear Solid, and maybe the new Zelda on wii... but you must contact me to request it.

I'm going to update the main post, so watch out for changes...
