I had expected more people to pick apart the parody of The Grinch to which I linked earlier (page 2?), simply because my harsh critical stance on AMVs has begged for karmic retribution. I don't care one way or the other - I'm personally happy with the way the piece came out, and that's all that matters to me. I enjoyed writing it; I don't care if anyone reads it, although I do enjoy sharing it with the folks I know will get a kick out of it.
Ah, well. This thread has served its purpose for me (in conjunction with the subsequent response on AN), so I'm happy.
Leader Desslock wrote:Here's a question for the group, based on a tangent thread over on AN:
Do you think that a critic needs to be able to work in the medium personally, in order to give constructive critical feedback of the work? Or do you think that it's possible for a critic to give constructive feedback simply by pointing out what he thinks is good or bad, and supporting his opinion with examples and sound argument?
On of my fellow writers on AN (and IMHO, our best artist) mentioned that one of the reasons AMV creators on AN might not be too receptive to my critical comments is that I personally lack the credibility to critique their work, not having made an AMV myself. I disagreed with this analysis, for several reasons. Several other creative types on AN (one of whom used to make AMVs) also disagreed. In keeping with this thread's tradition of sharing interesting points back and forth, I figured I'd toss it over here.
Do you think that you have to make AMVs to effectively criticize them? Why or why not?
