Single anime AMVs?

Postby OropherZero » Sun Jun 02, 2013 2:58 am

Soooooo, not sure if it's just me but I notice that there are not a lot of new vids now which just focus on one anime series. Is there a reason why so many vids now are multi-anime ones?

Presumably to try create something that's more original and not a rehash of a series.

I haven't noticed this, and I've been prescreening for a number of cons... Selection bias?

Which just ends up being unoriginal because everyone is using the same stuff.

Too many series just leads to "LOOK AT MY ANIME COLLECTION".

Cuts on beat, to random scenes from a dozen series isn't a music video. It's a strobelight.

I personally enjoy watching only single anime AMVs. Or those AMVs with 2 or 3.

Anything more than three, just makes it cluttered and nearly impossible to sort out which anime is which if you are not familiar with the choices.

Using more anime gives the editor more options for lyric/mood sync.

Personally, I enjoy single anime AMVs quite a bit as it maintains focus instead of hopping around too much.

But why so much multi-anime AMVs? Well... I think it's probably easier to find pretty clips from a range of sources. And people these days place such high priority on the pretty looking clips. Should they? Well... that's up to the goal of the editor. But to me, it makes sense, as most editors are young, and don't wish to make any more connections between the anime and music aside from pretty sound + pretty visual.

So... my answer is based Pretty. Yup. Is there anything wrong with that? Not really, but I think it helps explain the trend.

I like using a single source because it allows me to focus on a small set of characters and develop them more.

Hey JH :) The name change was long overdue. (For those that didn't see my post in the name change thread, I was that Phantasmagoriat guy...) I don't really make AMVs anymore; so now I'm focusing more on promoting mah blog: http://AMVGuide.blogspot.ca/

It's the same tactic used by a lot of big companies to promote a name. Like my local hockey arena is currently "Rexall Place" after the drug company. I figure I can do the same thing with my username, and help direct people to useful stuff in my signature ;)

I like tanks but, unless you are doing .. like .. a recap video of a series to remind people of all that happened, same series animes are boring! I can honestly say that single or multi-series AMV's are an art-form. ¿Which are better? .. its personel preference.
. What we hate are mixxed amv's: Simpsons + W.I.T.C.H. + Pocket Monsters; too complicated.
