Requests

Postby Warr3h » Wed Jan 30, 2013 6:05 am

Hello, I am going to make a new AMV but for that I need to know what people actually want. Therefor I will open up requests for songs used in my new AMV. The one I like, I'll use. Preferably I want the song to be something in the electronica genre, but indie rock goes well too.

Why not just make what you want? What does it matter what 'the people' want? Already you have a preference in audio you've supplied, why not grab a song that really catches your own fancy and go from there? No need to wait on what 'the people' have to say.

Because I am out of music... simple. Besides that I want something that catches the attention to a wider public so my AMVs get known. Ive made three AMVs so far, 2 half finished, and they seem a bit too "special" to grab the attention from most people out there.

I would love to see this song get edited to. A source idea I had with this was Summer Wars, but I forgot how many action scenes there are in that movie so it might not work out.

Why not upload them to the Org? What made them "special"?

You're probably better off choosing your own music. You've got to use a song that YOU like, otherwise your video is probably going to suck and you won't have any fun making it.

You could try watching my first one eg. and youll know what I mean by special.

And hey hey, of course Ill only choose a song that I like. Otherwise Im just gonna suffer while making the AMV, and so will my AMV.

Your efforts are doomed from the start if you're asking what people want in an amv.

Give them what YOU want.

^this.

i've been making amvs for almost 10 years and i've learned you can never predict what the audience will like. vids i thought were slam dunks ended up flops, and vice versa. regardless, i love all of my amvs, no matter how imperfect or unloved they are :amv:

Might be true. But I still want more music in my library so I can use a song that is fresh to my ears.

There's nothing wrong with taking requests, but you definitely gotta make them your own.

Several of my videos are requests from my friends and family O.o

Wait, so are you looking to make videos so you can get popular? Or are you just looking for new music?


Because those are two totally separate things.

Both tbh, but you cant become popular if you aim at becoming popular from the start.

I shoulda been more clear, but what I meant was that I want new music that would fit to some kind of artsy AMV. I dont pick songs randomly, I dont stick with songs that my ears are not content with because that would make it impossible for me to work as I get no inspiration neither motivation.

Sounds like AMV Suggestions would be the best place to ask about this kind of thing. viewforum.php?f=4

It's easier to suggest music if you've got a general concept or source in mind that you can describe to people.
