In fact I think setting up the camera became my favorite part of the film process when I started taking production classes. Now lighting I would say we are spoiled on, I really wish I was better at lighting, I guess its okay since my film style tends to be a bit darker and gritter though.
I really like the begging of it though it was almost like a movie, and I do agree amv editing does give you an advantage on editing in the intro classes (our school called it Production 1). This is my most recent short film though done for a project in my junior project class if your interested in checking it out.

Most of my exterior shots as they pile out of the truck and set stuff up are moving glidecam shots. These are uncommon in anime cause in anime they are typically budget blowing CG/crazy entire background animated moving shots. The same kinda shots that get cherry picked to use in AMVs, even if they're pretty typical following shots in film and television.
