Laws of Anime series?

Postby zalas » Thu Jul 18, 2002 8:27 am

I was wondering if it would be possible for a team of amv makers to do a series of amvs detailing all the Laws of Anime. Something like a few related laws per video would be nice :) Plus, it would probably be a good idea to have multiple songs relating to the different laws of anime that each video describes.

Looks like an interesting project to take up...
I'm thinking about it!

The difficulty of doing it is that if you mean an entire AMV focusing on one law, you run the risk of it getting VERY repetative VERY quickly. Basically you'd be showing a scenario again and again with only a change of character. If you are trying to encompass the whole list on one AMV then you have the problem of trying to locate an appropriate song and getting your idea across without the overusage of subtitles.

WK - And that's a reason why I said I was thinking about it... Did you actually think I would do something so.... Repetitive? Man, I need to explain myself a little better next time.. Detailed.... :oops: Sometimes I post without thinking... And sometimes I think about posting and somehow, I do post... :roll: Nevermind.... I'm just blah blah blahing again... Blah blah blah!!! :?

Well, I was thinking something along the lines of perhaps 15 seconds or 30 seconds for each law. And perhaps multiple laws in one video.

Hardest thing to do would be to pick a song that fit the laws well. Unless you went instrumental, in which case it's really not a problem. This is interesting...

Actually thinking about it. Everybody's freem to watch Anime is probably the closest a video will come to doing what you are explaining. However that relies on the audio for the laws and what you want is the actual laws that are on the interenet which will be much harder to find in audio.

Well, I was toying with this idea:

Have one of those classical music pieces running in the background (you know, one of those weird oldskewl university sounding pieces) and have someone say "Welcome to another edition of the Laws of Anime." And basically proceed to explain it like one of those physics programs for kids :)

Does someone have a link to these laws?

I like the idea of setting the narration to classical music (like the biography of the F-word).

Heh, yeah that's what I actually had in mind :)
BTW, what IS that song they play in the background? Is it Vivaldi or something?

Hey, I've got an idea. What if you moved away from the whole biography approach, and you replace it with one of those long (8-10 min) classical pieces that has a whole bunch of movements. That way, we could do a group of 4-5 creators, all with 1-2 min segments, and if we can get a piece that is diverse enough, we can use the emotional quality of the piece to bring the idea across better. Like something that had a lot of hard timpony might be facefaults, or something heavy snair might be female aggression kind of thing. Then we all parts are finished it could be recompiled into one just major large AMV. How about that?

I'm not sure it's that easy to find a symphony/composition that has that amount of variedness

Yeah... I was worried about that, but I do think that such pieces exist. Or maybe, better yet, we could use an overture for a play, and then just cut it up and let each person do one section.
