*bored one night, decides to come here*
I don't think I've made an introduction here ever eh?
Hi folks, my name is m3andchip5, but you can just call me Renato (usually on any forums I join, I usually use my real name as my nickname, but someone has taken it already
). Anyways, I have been here for quite a while, just haven't been posting as much, as I went through many life moments (such as graduation from High School and graduation from Uni, and numerous world adventures). I can pretty much say I'm a random guy... I just like a lot of various things in general. :/ Oh, and some might know me as the Sydney Manga and Anime Show's (SMASH!) AMV co-ordinator in 2010 & 2011, and as a judge in 2012. Now, my position in that con is higher and I am no longer the AMV Co-ordinator, but I am still involved in it. =3
As for my interest in AMVs, I love watching them since 2004 (if I didn't I wouldn't be here
), and now that I think about it, its amazing to see how much AMVs has evolved since when I first watching them at the age of 15... now at 23, styles and editing techniques have evolved! I think I consider myself as an 'old school' guy, meaning I tend to put more focus on some sort of storyline, instead of using a lot of effects. I don't make a lot of AMVs (as you can see in my profile >_>) but I have learned to practice a lot of effects and techniques in the last 3 years which resulted in around 20+ unfinished projects >_> My AMVs that I have here aren't that great, but at least did have some fun making them.
With my interest in AMVs starting to come back up, I hope to finish a couple of projects of mine and enter them in a couple of cons, but in the meantime, I hope to get to know all of you!
