XX: More Than Eye Candy - On hiatus

XX: More Than Eye Candy

IMPORTANT: If you've got any other source footage for strong female leads, grab a few seconds worth in huffyYUV and send em my way, if you like! I'll be using as many as I can in the closing credits.
I'll be contributing Izumi from FMA, Misato from NGE, Miyazawa from Kare Kano, Integra from Hellsing, Sakura from Naruto, Kaname from FMP, Rosette from Chrono Crusade, Sophie from howl's Moving Castle, Kaoru from Kenshin, Hitomi from Escaflowne, and Rem from Trigun. Got any I haven't listed? Feel free to send em along. :)

Pass: naruto

The Concept: To make an MEP featuring the strong female characters in anime. I’ve often begun an anime and found myself rolling my eyes at the depiction of a female lead – they tend to be cliché, it’s rare to find a strong, well-rounded lead (or secondary) character in an anime.
What do I mean by cliché? Let’s see…
1. The good-natured schoolgirl whom all the male characters can’t seem to help falling head over heels for. (This accounts for like… 75% of the anime in my collection, it’s downright sickening.)
2.The annoyingly adorable little girl whose only purpose seems to be… being cute.
3. The stone cold bitch fighting her inner demons.
4. The quiet, shy girl who hides in the background.
5. The sexy/evil seductress.
Have you seen an anime in which you felt one of the female characters was particularly engaging and well-rounded? Well, here’s your chance to prove to the AMV world that not all anime women are clichés.

Project Specifications:
1. Contributors: I reserve the right to decline any video/idea if I don’t feel that it fits into the general feel of the MEP as a whole.
2. Song Choice: Most contributors are choosing rock/upbeat songs, so to promote a sense of project unity I am limiting the song choices to such. Please try to avoid cursing in your song choice. Use a radio edit if you must.
3.Betas: Betas may be any format except .rm or quicktime. XviD/DivX/Mp4 are preferred.
4. Technical Specifications: Final video must be 720 x 480, de-interlaced. No subtitles, watermarks, logos or bumpers, please. 24 FPS, and HuffyYUV or Lagarith AVI.
5. Video: Length, 1-2 minutes. No hentai. Video game footage will be accepted, providing the video adheres to the general guidelines (size, quality, etc) listed above.
6.Audio: Final must be uncompressed .WAV. Please leave 5 seconds at beginning and end for a smooth transition into the next segment (ie, don’t end your segment’s audio on a fade out).
7. No duplicates: Only one video per character will be accepted into the final project.

I'd prefer it if it weren't (it's under "video" in the project specifications), but if you can manage to show a strong female character from a hentai WITHOUT showing any sex or questionable content, you're free to try.
Generally hentai is worse than general anime when it comes to type-casting women, at least in my experience... which hentai were you considering?

This one strikes my fancy (however, I guarentee nothing till a few hitches are worked out)...... :P


I'll use ROD (OVA) I think ... and do a action / drama piece ...

As for the song, I'm not sure, but I would like it to match the other styles of music in the mep .... :wink:

Uncompressed will work. Which character would you be using from ROD? It's been awhile since I watched it, but I remember loving the main character in that.

Ok, after having listened to your musical selection, which I will use as my basis for the overall tone of the mep, I will do the following:

Character: Yamoko Readman
Anime: ROD (TV & OVA)
Music: Gasoline by Audioslave
Style: JudgeHolden action ..... :P

I think that song will blend nicely with your selection, plus I think I will start at the bridge which should make a transition easier. :wink:

I'm a little busy with my MEP but your idea is so cool that I'm definitely in :up:

I haven't decide a song yet but one character came to my mind in the moment I read the concept ^_^

Character: Ray Kasugano
Anime: Ray The animation
Genre: Drama

It's not a very known anime but I hope it fits with your main idea.

Being the little feminist I am I really like this project idea and even though I told myself I wouldn't join anymore MEP's this year after the Clow one I would really like to join. If there one thing I don't like about some animes is the stereotype for girls and women. Anyway while I think it's a great idea I can't really think of any animes I own that may work(most have somewhat the 1st or 2nd cliché, but not to it's full description ) I do have a few ideas however I'm not 100% sure if they work, like the girl doesn't fit any of the cliches you listed and I believe her to be a strong person though just that nagging feeling that she may not work.

Anyway I would like to join but I guess I have to come up with something 1st so I'll get back to ya later about which girl I chose and what song. ja
