Yes. We now make AMVs in portrait mode to better fit people's smartphones and tablets...

Not really. But we could!

In the context of AMVs? Poorly timed, SD video sources from VHS era productions.

In terms of editing? My last video has almost straight cuts and was very well received from audience and judges at the con where I have premiered it. Linky link...

YAY! Ben! Seriously... I was thinking about you some weeks ago. I was thinking about what happened to some members. You know... back in the Project Gateway days. I see you still wearing the same banner in your sig =)


I think YouTube still got more and more a place of ADS editors and audience. There are more and more those really short videos. Have fun the way you like, but I disagree in only picking the best parts of a song and making a mindless video to it. For what? For your regular content for your YouTube subscribers? Your present to them, because you've hit 300 subs? :| I wish there would be more time spent on full length concepts and AMVs. Not saying that there aren't enough of them around...

Some editing styles are more present in specific editor types than in others. Like... those typical Sony Vegas-cookie cutter vids that float around in YouTube.

After harsh censorship of my latest AMV on YouTube, I'm still the opinion that the org matters and has it's place.

People at the conventions still love amvs. AMV-contest became some regular bitch for every convention in my country. Almost like cosplay contests. Everybody just has to have one.

Personally: I'm back! After almost two years of some sort of break. People thought that I've quit! oO


Godix died too? Wow... Zetzu already shocked me a lot. -.-

My dad was an old school editor...

He cut film for television. You know, sliced celluloid and then taped it back together with a machine called a "splicer" where it was then run to betacam. I get my editing interest from him, I think, as much as this stuff can passed down inherently...

I think 'Old School' means that you don't color correct the footage and that you just use cuts and fades. :P

Personally, I don't get major use of color correction unless communicating something specific through the music video, like a flash back. The video is already corrected to the way the director wanted it to be afterall.

*looks up from color correcting footage of fire fighters for a commercial he's working on*

It doesn't count if it's footage I shot myself! D:
