AMV Interview

Q: Thanks for joining me today Tritio! Care to introduce yourself to the audience and let us know a little bit about yourself?

A: No problem and thanks for inviting. Hello all, my name is Lenin Alexander better known as Tritio, I'm 23 years old. In the real life I work as a General Doctor in a public hospital from my city San Pedro Sula, located in Honduras, a Central American country. In the day I have to spend the time working with the patients, and at night I go to relax watching some anime and making clips that could be MADs or AMVs, depending of what I want to create in the moment. Been a member of the org since 2009, although I was following it from a very long time ago. After getting involved I learned here the concept of being part of a community since in the past I used to be a solitary editor, and the reason why I avoided the org in the past, as now I can assist and help any editor that needs my help, between the feedback, organizing an AMV Contest, or just exchanging ideas for videos. And I'm a member of the ZonaAMV (ZA), the spanish community for AMV-Makers

Hmm yes, that's me

Q: Thanks again for joining me. Let's start things off and ask you how you got involved in the world of AMVs?

It's curious how in my beginnings I used to dislike anime when I was 5 years old. Although in the national television everyday anime used to be brodacasted in different channels, Local problems related to violence affected the anime industry here. So an anime restriction came and the anime was suspended and forgotten for a time 'This is the Restriction I mentioned somewhere here' but by that time, I was becoming an anime fan.

Returning: I used to dislike the anime until I visited grandma's house. That day, some cousins were watching Sailor Moon. When I first watched it I was like: meh, but as days kept passing, I was suddenly interested in the story (Nor to mention that the cartoons suddenly started to get boring) so I gave it a try. This happened in the 90s. When we reached the 00's, the only series I was following were Sailor Moon, Saint Seiya and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Ironically I missed Dragon Ball Z because 'It was forbidden to watch DBZ because it was a Violent show in the house' and the rest of animes I was watching...

Now, how is this related to the AMVs?
Back in August 25, 2002 I was watching Sailor Moon and there was a random song playing near. By accident, I muted the episode I was watching and the song kept playing. I was amazed how the song was fitting the episode I was watching, but I didn't know this was an AMV until some years later. The same day I decided to pick the few episodes I got with me, find the song and decided to make something into the mysterious 'Windows Movie Maker' since by that time I didn't know about this program.

After making the first video, I was amazed that anime and music could make an awesome combination, so I decided to keep practicing and practicing. After the anime restriction back in 2003, It became harder to get the anime, and there were random laws forbidding the distribution of anime included the internet services, but there was still a possibility, since we had to change the names of the episodes using just the abbreviations like S.M.EP.1, in order to continue following the anime. At the beginning it was harder to get newer animes but I kept finding new songs and meeting people. This is where the org enters since I found it during a search for some anime. It was the first time I saw the word A-M-V.

Thanks to the AMV I was able to discover the new animes, since the word AMV wasn't banned. So I wasn't out too much even when the anime was suspended. This is how I get involved with the AMVs

Q: So you're a doctor! A busy one at that! How do you manage to organize your time between your busy worklife and AMVs? For the would-be doctors out there, what's the profession like?

A: With a single word: Discipline. I organize myself so that I can decide which days I'll edit and which days I'll be out from edition. In the day, from the moment I wake up, I have to get ready to go to the Hospital. I stay all the 7 days of the week in it, at different times of course

If you take a look to my quote "Working in the Hospital in the day, making AMVs by night" that resumes how I distribute the time. Problem comes when I have to work at night and then I have to close proyects, but in order of priorities, the work is more important than the AMVs, because the fun can wait while a Human Life can't.

It's curious that several patients here call me Dr. Tritio since there are several of them who have watched or realized what I do in my free time. Even between the others doctors, I'm surprised they take the time to watch my videos, since they admired the fact that even with the huge amount of work I normally have, I still have time and patience to do a hobby like the AMV-Making.

For anyone that wants to study the art of the Medicine: You should know that if you want to become a medical doctor, you should be ready to study a lot, have a lot of patience, and have a lot of stamina and determination. This career is long and it might bring you good and sad times specially when a person dies, but if you know what you're doing you'll never have any problem. And you must treat the patients like if they were your real siblings, otherwise you can't expect to be a good doctor if you don't treat them like you'll do with your beloved ones, then you can't deserve to be a medical doctor.

Q: You seem to do a lot of "crossover" AMVs, which is fusing two different types of anime and creating the illusion of only one anime being used. What's your reason behind the creation of these kinds of AMVs, and do you have any advice for those out there that might be interested in the prospect?

A:Yes, and there's a reason I never mentioned here or in the skype chats:

When I used to be a child, I always dreamed with the possibilities of watching my favorite characters mixed in the same video but looking like they were in the same anime. I grew up with that idea in my mind, but didn't know how that was supposed to be called, so I thought it was the classical 'Anime Mix'

I promised myself to do 'Those videos' before I started to lose interest in the anime, although it took me 8 years to gain enough experience about the Crossover Style

Have you watched Umika or Galia&Kitty? Not only them, also the rest of users of the Crossover Style: We share common facts behind the making of the videos, like if once we watch a new anime we can see 'The AMV and all its protagonists' inside it. Or we can already see the 'Possible Story' Behind the characters and previous anime watched.

I advise everyone that wants to try crossover: You should already know what you're going to do. Find the similitudes between the anime chosen, cause if the animes doesn't fit, the edition will become harder and you might probably give up soon.
Crossover requires a lot of dedication, because the success behind a crossover-style video is how with the current mix, you can show an alternative story that becomes interesting for anybody, fans or people that have never watched the animes in the video.

I recommend you to try it at least once, you'll realize the style is very addictive once you try it

Q: You seem to have quite a tether with AMVNews and the Akross competition. Care to share a little bit about the Russian AMV culture, or perhaps about your experiences with them?

A: Ah the russians buddies...
Normally in the journal entries, I keep mentioning facts about the russian culture from time to time.

My relationship between Russia and me

Back years later, I met EvilSpider and the AKROSS Con, the Winter Contest. I liked the fact that the criticism was really helpful, something that I was looking for. I decided to support and help the event AKROSS Con from that day until now, as a co-helper for the foreigner editors that join the first time to our event and explaining the rules.

About AMVNews: The first days were troublesome because I had conflicts with some administrators, but once we decided to forget the differences for the sake of the AMV world, I decided to not only support the AKROSS Con, but also the AMVNews administration with the Russian contests: Big Contest, Level Up and the Natsuno Contest, as you can see that I was a judge for those events in the past.

Once you meet the russian they can be your friends. And they are very honest when dealing with feedback which is something I appreciate. Problem is that the points of view about the amvs are different as russian community call them 'Clips' and rarely AMVs. Nor to mention that the community focus more into the technical aspect of the video in balance with the concept.

Sometimes I can't really understand them when I find a decent video and they are still esceptic about it while other videos that are not that 'so good' get famous. Differences between communities, yes, but still they are just something.
By the way, I tend to teach about the spanish language between the russians, since I noticed an interest about our language, so I gave some editors ideas of Spanish music that could be used for AMVs.

I have also been related with the French community and the Italian community. With the Italian Community, I never gave thanks to them, so in my next video, its title is inspired in the Italian language

Q: Quite often, you're involved with judging AMVs in various contests around the internet. What's your secret to judging, and what would you advise to potential judges?

A: The only possible secret is to stay focus in what you are going to do. I can have an Opinion as a viewer and as an editor, but as a Judge, I have to think twice what I'm going to say. If I have been chosen to judge an AMV Contest, I'm supposed to say and see many facts that normally I wouldn't. Besides, the function is not only limited to just watch and say an Opinion about the videos, but also think about the rules and the judgement criteria for the videos. I prefer to at least have a kind of 'Format' of how I'll do with the contest.

Advises: -If you're a judge, you can't just comment like you'll normally do. To every action there's a reaction, so you have to be ready to justify all your actions with the contestants.

-Don't be scared. Being a judge will help you also to learn and have a wide vision of the AMV World, as it will help you gain experience once you want to organize your own AMV Contest. If you're unsure you can try watching AMVs and generate an Opinion about them like: Does this AMV looks like something new, or it was made several times before?

Q: Anything new or interesting we can expect to see from you sometime this year or early next year?

A: Since you asked it:

-There's a last video coming this year, expecting to finish even though 28 seconds are missing to the end but they will be the hardest moment of the video. A promo of the video has been made as I'll put it here soon

-With this video, a trilogy will start in the same style to Prelude to Death trilogy. If I choose the nick Tritio that means I can also use the alternative nicks, which will be the names of the next videos. I'll not switch nicks as I expected to do it before.

-I'll be returning to the studios, so I want to start next year as the new member of a studio. I'll be returning to YouTube also, as I want to study the community there.

-Again, crossovers will return. Different to last year, the crossover of this year includes different anime, starting from To Love Ru saga until Bleach

-As an advice from Yue, My participations at AMV Contest as contestant will be reduced next year

Q: Well thanks for joining me today Tritio. Any last minute comments or advice for the readers out there?

A: Keep enjoying the AMV Hobby, if you don't enjoy the AMV Hobby, then you can't expect to make a good video if there's not enough passion in it.

-When we started making AMVs nobody here had an idea of what the AMV edition was about, don't be afraid about receiving feedback, it will help you improve if you know what to do.

Great interview with a man who seems to define "hard work" and "determination." I'm amazed by someone who seems to have as much energy as you do.

I find it kind of funny how you seem to hang out a lot more in the Russian AMV community than I do (even though I'm a Russian AMV editor). I think that just underscores that people from different cultures AND different AMV traditions can be friends, make stuff together, and participate in each other's events no problem. I wish more people would do this, instead of being like "man, those Russians are too technical" or "those crazy French..." or "bleh the .org sucks and has low standards" or "youtube editors are ruining everything!". Actually the different AMVing communities are far closer than most of their members realize, and it's great to see someone like you who crosses boundaries and participates/makes friends in all of them : |:>

Being a veteran of many conventions' AMV events and contests, this sounds like rather bad advice to me. You (and every creator) should make the effort to get your video out to the masses in various parts of the world. Contrary to what's been said, it's not "trolling", it's getting videos out to the various audiences of the conventions. This is truly the only reason why there are AMV events in the first place -- we are all doing it for the enjoyment of the audience and the expansion of the fan base for the art form. Don't ever forget that. :wink:

It's true that the real purpose is the entertainment of the audience, which is the best and only award that matters at the end. But as for my experience as AMV Contest coordinator, if I promise you something, I must fullfill what I promised. As I expect a similar attitude with other contests, but it's not like I'll stop taking participation in the contests. It's just that I'll show wisely which convention I'll submit and which one no :up:

heh.

Luckily the idea of "send every video everywhere" is slowly dying down and only a small group hold on to it for dear life.

It actually is seen as trolling by everyone who isn't in the mass submissions mindset.

Last time I checked, I wasn't doing it for the audience at all. I do it for myself. Which I believe is one of the top reasons people edit. We're not trying to please anyone but ourselves. Yes, it's lovely to see the artform grow, but making 1 video a year and sending it everywhere is a horrible example.

A decent amount of people use contests deadlines as motivates to finish videos they've been working on. Why wouldn't you want editors to continue making multiple videos to send to different cons? Unless you're all for the idea of saturating every single contest out there with the exact same videos. And on the subject doing "doing it for the audience", well, what about the audience members who attend multiple cons? I guess they don't matter and should be treated to the exact same contest that has played at every convention across the world. I've heard my fair share of "this video? :roll:" from audience members. Just because you don't hear it or they don't post publicly (at least in places you can see) that doesn't mean they don't exist. Sure, there are still people out there who haven't seen particular videos but that doesn't mean it's our duty to make sure this small group of people see this video and memorize every cut. The audience will ALWAYS find something to enjoy so why don't we try and make it a unique and awesome experience?
In addition to that, it's incredibly rude to any other editor who actually makes a video specifically for that con. If a video has had it's run, why not have the decency to retire it and let someone else have a shot?

You could use the excuse of "but they're helping out the contests and coordinators." If there were only 30 videos made a year, that'd be true. However, the last time I checked there were...eh, a couple more than that. :P Pulling in a good contest requires work and dedication. If you want editors to respect you and send in their entries, then you have to show respect to them by reaching out and making your presence known. Sitting there and saying "plzsendkthnxbai" doesn't really do a whole lot and will probably net you under 50 entries. I feel very proud of my convention and contest work when I manage to pull in unique entries that haven't been played more than the Paris Hilton sex tapes.

Instead of spending your time filling out entry forms for the same video over and over again, why not take your time to try and create new and exciting videos? Support the contests that you feel deserve it, the ones that show they really care about the hobby by doing their best to work with the editors to make sure their videos and editing is respected. You don't have to make a new video for every con but showing some restraint gains you respect from the community and gives the audience a great time.

Like I said, luckily this mindset is slowly disappearing with only the die-hard trolls clinging to it. Still makes me sad to see people who want to belittle the hobby and spam it around though. I had thought we were more productive and creative than that.

I don't make enough videos to send a different one to every convention. I average about two videos a year, not including MEPs. However, I compete seasonally. Usually there are Fall/Winter videos, and there are Spring/Summer videos. Until recently, my two markers were Anime Central and Anime Weekend Atlanta.

The former representing Spring/Summer and the latter representing Fall/Winter. Any additional submissions made to other conventions of the same video would be seen as extra, but I never submit a single video to more than three or four conventions before retiring it from the con circuit. Add to the fact that I don't compete every year.

I do have a problem with "trolling" largely because I have an issue with a small number of videos winning all the awards for an extended period of time. For a person like me who has very, very few wins (and only as of, oh, this past weekend), the idea of someone picking up so many awards that diminishing individual relative value to the winner seem obscene to me. Better, I think for those individuals to target very, very strong contests and leave the smaller contests for others to compete in without worrying about such a large gap in skill level or talent. Some smaller contests, if trolled, would be the equivalent of an olympic sprinter racing a very good high school sprinter. Both are excellent, relatively speaking, but it's not fair to place them together...

i'm with GQ on this one. if it's not against the rules, it's fair game. and if it's not in the rules, then there isn't a demand for it. a lot of people seem to have a different opinion about what trolling is. in my opinion, sending a video to several different conventions and being repeatedly rewarded for their efforts by receiving awards and downloads should be something to be proud of. Nobody sends in an entry with the mindset that they're going to take every category and not let anyone else have a chance to win. the majority i've seen is people reacting with shock and gratitude over their winnings. it's kinda like a new parent bouncing around showing pictures of his kid. yeah people might get annoyed seeing the same photo after a while but who cares what they think? if you're passionate about something then don't let the negativity of others bring you down.

granted, if i have a video that tends to continuously win, i will retire it sooner than others. however that is mostly only because of the whining i've learned tends to follow a successful AMV. i've yet to see any complaints towards an amv that makes several rounds but doesn't win much.


but anyway, this was a great read, Tritio! :up: i give you props for your job, wow. oh, and you at some point have finally watched dragonball z, right?.... :awesome:

I haven't recently, but in the past, I did indeed know of editors who hit upon some magic formula and started sending out the winning video to more and more conventions in order to maximise winnings. Admittedly, those individuals have disappeared. They didn't seem capable of continuing to put out winning videos, or they took all of their single video spoils and quit the hobby. But I am certainly capable of saying I have indeed met editors who did send in an entry to multiple cons, usually smaller, not as well known cons, with the intention to WIN ALL THE AWARDS (or at least, win one award per contest submitted to, and they submitted to like every small con ever). I find that terribly bad sportsmanship.

I'd have to say that there are people out there who actually send videos to strategically win categories and such. They made not be vocal on the forums, but sadly I have seen them discuss it and it makes me sad.

Not many people are going to post their "I'll win all the awards because everyone else sucks" in public on the forums, but from what I've seen in private that ideal is still going waaaaay too strong with waaay too many. That is one thing that really makes me hate those that troll.

I'm sorry but I will never see the appeal in having every single contest identical with the same videos. I've heard more negative impacts on the crowd than I have positive, at least from those who actually care about AMVs and aren't just there to see Naruto dance to Lady Gaga and lol.

Videos spamming convention are a real issue. That's the reason why Japan Expo became an exclusive contest, it really was annoying to see the winner of Big Contest winning the contest particularly knowing our audience ain't an inexpert on the subject not considering the community, we have a lot of people who watch AMVs without participating in the community as viewers and/or editors and they got bored of watching the current famous vids on big screen, there's no interest in it and if they lose interest, they'll just leave and no more audience...

Though, basically, I can understand that people send a video for different contests, I mean, to send a video to AWA and another to JE/BC ain't a problem, it's not like editor/non-editor audience was a same. I always discover winners of AWA/Connichi(/any contest that ain't french or russian actually XD) on org once results are already revealed so well... these people, at least, increase the number of entries in contest and it's still a good thing

I think your personal notions are biasing your views of the subject quite a bit. I edit to entertain people. I know a lot of people that edit to entertain people. I also run an AMV room to entertain people and I run a contest to entertain people. I really like entertaining people, so I can sympathize with people who really do want to entertain people, especially when they give me great videos to entertain people with - as when I put on a show, entertaining that crowd with my contest is my number one job. I want to put on a good show. My con chair wants to put on a good show. We spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on trophies and are given hundreds in prize support to incentivize people to make the show much better than one would expect for its size.

On the flip side, I also hate people that can't learn self restraint and don't know when to say when without having to be forced to by a rule book. I feel they lack empathy and common sense. I also also know that the vast majority of con-goers don't visit more than one con a year, and the ones that do tend to stick to their geographical area.

Now this is getting way off topic. People need to talk about the damned interview and how awesome Dr. AMV is.
