i have just decided to commit to 2 things when i comes to AMVs.
When an idea is sparked in my head, I will immediately report to AMV.org to write it down in my journal. i have had a ton of ideas come and go thru my spaced out head. This way, when I stop procrastinating and want to edit, now i can remember what the original idea was.
When an opinion is left for one of my vids, I will respond with the utmost gratitude because I know that there are tons of vids and ppl who don't get a second look, let alone an opinion. So I will be grateful and respectful even if i get flamed.
reasearch + new agenda
ok....today i spent the better part of 3 hours going from store to store searching for anime prices, specials, and availability of anime. this is what i have come up with:
Suncoast: average price of $29.99, replay card special in which points add up to money back gift certificates, biggest anime selection in my area, most stuff in stock, friendly people
Hastings: average price of $19.99 and below if used or never heard of titles, no special deals, titles are scarce and sometimes looking for specifics is down right impossible, they do rent out anime *big plus* , special order proved to be unreliable (i ordered FLCL about 2 months ago...still not arrived, whereas Suncoast has had them on stock for a good while), nice people when around
BestBuy: average price of $19.99 + depending on popularity of title, the selection was decent but not great, don't know if they special order, same location of hardware/software for computer artists which is a pro, they have a card program but i didn't get details, people not too into anime cuz the store include so much other stuff
So...what i have done is to rely on Suncoast for availability and ordering for anime that i cannot find else where. this way, i buy cheap from hastings or best buy and if i can't find what i'm looking for, then i will go to Suncoast, and since i signed up for the Replay Card, i get points for money back options. So, it all works out in the end.
been a while...
man, i haven't wrote in the journal for a while....it's been two amvs later and i am now contemplating my next idea....probably another failure but i'm gonna do it to learn and to have fun....
Idea: it's an sr-71 song to princess mononoke
i wanna use basic timing, some fading and maybe b&w, but more-so i want the video to actually go with the song...
cuz the song's chorus is " i'm a broken handed superman" and ashitaka has a curse on his arm....whew can't get simpler than that :p
well, i wanna do this cuz it's been in my head for about 2 months now
hopefully it will be good
Well, I am finally makin' that transition from one woman (mom) to another (girlfriend). I will be moving in with my g/f of two years this week. I hope that everything stays cool between us now that we'll be together all the time. I hope she can cope with me and my computer. hehe, I speak as if we are joined at the hip. Well, I mean that I am always on it and I know she'll get mad if I don't show her enough attention. We shall just see how it goes.
Completed 1st AMV
Man I am so excited that something that I created is going to be put on the web and shared with people. It feels wierd to have a place on the internet that is so vast.
