Okay... I gotta check in here. I'm thinking of asking this person if I can do a re-edit of this and include it next year, because it's just too fuckin' funny to me.

I wanted to see what you all think. Again, all the funniest stuff I want to do this year involves curses, and amazingly every clip I managed to do in AMVS5 was somehow clean... give or take the reaction to the Chobits clip ^^ (Blame Troy for saying 'Chobits' when I said "I want to use a car alarm somewhere' and it was born in 5 seconds)

Now that Scott's given the go-ahead with more adult word content, I want to pull off some of the ones I was too nervous to last year.

Welcome aboard. Have some fun and come up with funny stuff ^^ We don't become REALLY active until around 4 months until the deadline, but that's no reason not to make clips now if you want to. It's just the type of people we are. Feel free to run any ideas by us here as well. If you see the previous AMVS threads, there is a bit of a quality requirement because while we're an AMV Hell clone, we're a pretty good AMV Hell clone with a bit of a reputation at the cons we're at :D If it doesn't make the majority of us laugh, then there's a good chance a clip will be cut, so don't be afraid to get a critique on an idea or a clip before you get too much into detail so you can be sure it works. We don't bite too badly ;)

Again, welcome about and have fun. Remember to read the submission instructions clearly as well to alleviate hassle later. You'll be grateful you did.

Actually, I find Salad to be better than Hell.
Sure, Amv Hell had its classic moments, but the whole concept crashed and burned at the third one. Way too much clutter and fake advertisements / parody songs.

I apologize for my absence.
My computer got hit with a nasty virus and caused my HD to block any attempt to activate Windows after repairing from OS disc.
Doesn't appear like I missed much. :P

Anyway, I'm gonna put up the "rules" for voting on clips for (tentatively titled) AMV Salad: Reheated Leftovers.
I'm almost done compiling clips and forming a time line.
Our target time is gonna be 25 minutes max.
Stay tuned...

I remember someone asking about grafetti scenes for that Reno clip...would have replied earlier but it's such a pain to type messages on my phone and my internet will be down untill the end of the month :(

Anyway, I was watching netflix and catching up on shows that I'd started and never finished and came across episode 18 of Sammuri Champloo. Dunno if you'd checked there yet but that whole episode is pretty much grafetti. Just thought I'd put the word out about sources and what not. Now back to work!

I'm posting to let you all know I'm compiling AMV Salad: Reheated.

Soon I will post a download link to the 31-minute retrospective of the first four episodes, only taking the clips which received the strongest reactions from convention viewing audiences.
This will be the "pre-show" for AMV Salad 5 as it "tours" this year.
It's mainly for those new to the series or who wish for a compilation of the best, funniest clips from past years.

What I want from all of you who decide to help me shape this is...
1. watch the video,
2. take each clip on its own merit or how well you feel it would work with the project,
3. eliminate one clip,
4. PM me with your choice.
Once I take those clips off the time line, we will repeat the process for round 2.
I will wait one week for each round.
We will have as many rounds as it takes until we cut the time down to 22 minutes.
The final video will be no longer than 25 minutes.

Who's in?

Here it is...

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VTSR0V10

SN: I forgot to include "Jackass Through Time" from AMVS4.
I'm thinking that might be one of the "safe" clips, though.
And a few clips somehow found their way in twice so disregard one of them.
Anyway,...GO!

Hehe, wow, felt really good to see some of Darkness's stuff in the same production as mine ^^ I forget if I mentioned, but his clips were some of the ones that made me finally bite the bullet and do these back in '09, because of our similar humor style. Well... that and cancer, but ya know ^^ Glad so many of his are back.

What are your plans past the first rounds of cuts actually? Because this is going to be a true AMVS, not just some off-hand compilation. These clips have to work just as well with each other as they did with the others in their respective productions. And this is going to be a really fun challenge, because a lot of these are older jokes mixed with timeless jokes. I honestly would have to say we should have a discussion on clip placement after people give their two cents on clip removal/replacement, because that's no less crucial in this as it is in anything. And I do know you've just dumped them in for now ^^ I mean after all's said and done and you have a version ready for moving.

But one thing I do want to say here... if Sony POS isn't first, due to its classic nature and the nature of its buildup, I want Darkness's Through the Fire and the Flames Haruhi one as the first intro clip ^^ Seeing it now amidst all those clips, it represents a perfect balance of old and new jokes I think :D

I'll watch again tomorrow and think up one for the first round of cuts/replacements.

Oh and thanks for including the Eva Weird Al one. Totally forgot about it, and it's as hilarious as it was back then. Definitely belongs in this.

Once we reach our target time, I'll submit a tentative time line.
Then he discussion will commence.
Since "POS" was designed to lead the project, that's pretty much where it will stay.
Maru-sha has contributed the foundation for closing credits.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y25vJgtyR1E
The screen will contain all the production tags rolling past before the actual credits appear.
I really wish I could get a group of kids to do the intro with "anime music videos" and "AMV Salad" for the audio but something can be worked out.
I also wanna have a kind of highlight package running in the background as the actual end credits scroll.

Target completion date is November 1.
This is gonna be an extremely entertaining package from beginning to end...

Are you sure you picked the best ones?

At the very least I missed the stapler one from Salad 5 and there are a lot of clips in there I would throw out (at least 15). For instance the "The internet is for porn" one, that's been done to death, and I can't imagine Salad being the first parody to do it. There are quite a few with user tags on them, although you can't do much about that now. I've never really liked the 'apply directly to the forehead' ones either. There's a Cartman one that is really sucky in terms of sound. My favourite was the Thriller/Lucky Star one.

Keep in mind that this isn't including AMVS5. This is going to be played before AMVS5 when it does the rounds this year, so those clips won't be included. It's a compilation of the last four years.

Like I said above, this one will be a fun challenge, because it's got timeless jokes as well as old jokes that may be past their prime. To give them their full power, they have to be placed well, and likewise, some of the choices made may not be the best, so Deuce's method should help weed some out (although some of us may like ones others don't, so votes may have to be made on some). We may have to rewatch the originals to make sure some of the ones that are more timeless won't be overlooked. But also keep in mind the Con crowds love nostalgia (something I always seem to forget) so we have to take that into consideration.

For the Lucky Star Thriller one... honestly, I'd personally like the editing to be touched up on that one. It didn't seem to hit a single beat in the song, and that was very distracting for me. It'll be that much stronger if whoever did it could do another small pass on it to tighten up the timing if they can. But I agree, I like it. Especially due to Michael Jackson not being with us anymore.
