AMV Heaven [closed - completed] [Released: June 5 2010]

Postby PPNSteve » Tue Jan 05, 2010 1:53 pm

As we all are familiar with AMV Hell, we decided to do an inverse of that.. thus we have created and are working on "AMV Heaven" See the .
Now this is not a heavenly or clean type of ME AMV.. Its just designed to oppose AMV Hell. So with this in mind, we're looking for some submissions from you all.

We will accept any editors in the project - first timers and pro's.

Any skill level of editor is welcome

Each editor is allowed to submit up to 3 songs/vids and each submission can use up to 1min per song/video (the average should be at or around 30 secs)
You can use a vocal or instrumental song or TV commercial audio in your video.

Videos can have any theme like Action, Comedy, Sentimental, Drama, etc.
Just make sure the scenes go with the song you are using.. Funny and/or off-beat are better.

Any anime can be used, but the video must be able to be hosted locally so no extreme violence or graphic sex is allowed. (Keep it USA "R" rated and below.)

The deadline for videos is Mar 1st 2010.

Videos should be of high of quality as possible and should NOT have subs or logos.
Filetypes should be either Lagarith or .mpg (mpeg2) with bit/muxrate between 10 - 20Mbps (.avi [xvid], .mp4 .mov[h264] will be accepted if quality is high)

The resolution should be 640 x 480px NTSC

Frame rate of 23.976fps (24fps) or 29.97 (30fps) and should not have any Interlacing. They should be progressive and should be compressed in high quality. Wide-screen vid should be letter boxed to fit or reserved for our vol 2 project.

Audio should be: raw, pcm, mpg2 - VBR (+196)kbps, aac or mp3 (196kbps or better) @ 48000 Hz

Video link(s) should be submitted in a pm or email, along with your credits name, title, anime used, song data, and hosted somewhere like megaupload for retrieval.

I'm in no way saying ya'll couldn't pull this off [and I sincerely hope you're sucessful], I just thought I would point out that this project has been tried before.

Here

You might take a quick peek through it and see where they made mistakes so you don't fall down the same pit.

Also, while your technical aspects are cool, I thought I'd point out that Lossless footage compressed in Lagarith has a pretty low filesize with great quality instead of MPEG2, and even uncompressed lossless MP4's are great.

Otherwise, good luck with it! =)

Thanks.. we do have a decent amount of self (both myself and my partner) made vids to get us started as well as a great team of co-editors and QC peeps.. + the background and resources to pull this off. (well mostly anyway, we do still need you, the short AMV maker, to help out)

Just a reminder, we prefer unpublished videos BUT will, for this inaugural release, accept previously published vids or clips from them as warranted.

We DO want to expand to the AMV community mainly for variation as we have limited animes and music selections available to us.. more is always better right?

I'm a tad leery about using Lagarith as I'm not sure how well it's supported in Adobe Premiere Pro CS3.. (If anyone knows, please comment) and we've had pretty good luck with mpeg 2 with our vids.

Thanks again and we look forward to some great AMV's from you all.

USA R and below?

You mean 14A right? Cause R is graphic sex and violence.

R is not graphic sex. Bruno is rated R and there was no graphic sex, just a spinning cock. :mrgreen:

Still a cock.

Besides in order to be on local it has to be NC-17 and below.

NC-17 is above "R" in the USA

mild violence or sexual situations is fine.. graphic blood/gore or sex/fucking is not.

So in what way exactly is this opposed to AMV Hell other than the title? It actually seems supportive of AMV Hell's idea, being that it is the exact same thing. Unless I'm missing something here.

yes.. same basic idea. only real difference is we're a bit less picky as to who/what editors we allow, and we have a much more flexible time limit requirement.. and we can and will release faster.
the idea is to have fun and promote AMV shorts I guess
