It's interessting how specific an audience of your AMV can be. This weekend I've won yet another Viewers Choice Award (at the AniMuc in Munich). Yet this AMV is totally irrelevant to the international audience. Giving me under 200 clicks on amv.org.
That's totally fine! It's really only suited for people living in Germany, Austria or Swiss. The native German speakers.
Maybe this also reflects how small of an impact this audience has on amv.org. Maybe after I have presented the video on the big AMV contests here this summer, than I might see the full impact.
Let's see about that.
This also reminds me of how limited you can be without amv.org. YT blocked this video in about 50-100 countries. With skydrive and amv.org, there is no way to reach everybody I want. It's because amv.org is probably irrelevant to the casual amv viewer these days. It's a sad thing.
Everyday is Iron Chef now
So that's it... well it's not really finished, but it is in some beginning of a status. Finally I am a professionel editor. With "pro" I mean: you can make a living of it.
Since Monday I am part of a local TV station as editor, cameraman and "that guy who can fix it". I just realised later that I actually am now where I wanted to be many years ago. It made me think about how it's not really important to me anymore. I make money in the media biz since many years.
Oh I am still excited! It's cool to work in a TV station with some sort of 8000 bucks iMac. The techincal infrastructure is gorgeous. Even if they've told me that it is far from perfect. I create about 6min of content per workday. That includes a mastered video that you can air.
If I cut videos for the daily news mag, than it's Iron Chef all day. You need about 2 hours for a 1:30 min clip.
Working as editor is cool. I'm just surprised how fast I got into the Final Cut 7 hotkeys. I think I will change the layout in my private Premiere Pro.
I possibly have a job as video cutter at a local small tv channel. I have to prove myself. Time to fresh up my Final Cut 7 knowledge.
This call for a quick blitz project. Yeah... xD
Okay guys! Proper release is out!
Enough was said in my last journal entry so go geeet iiiiit:
and share your thoughts with meeee:
It won the Viewers Choice Award at the JapanCity AMV contest in Vienna.
My new AMV: "The Legend of Ziegenpeter & Alm-Öhi" is here, but...
"The Legend of Ziegenpeter & Alm-Öhi" is already online after taking premiere at the Japan City 2013 AMV contest today. It's a comedy video with german hip hop. The highly bases on the lyrics. Just a little disclaimer :D
I always priortize a full proper AMV release on the amv.org before some quick and dirty YouTube release. However I have to work fast on my bachelor thesis until Monday. The screening room of the Japan City amv contest was suboptimal. So I wanted to publish this as soon as possible for all those who couldn't see it. It's better than someone else uploading it "for me" on YouTube =/
I really apologize for this quick and dirty release that emphasizses quantity over quality. A full quality amv.org release with proper forum thread and announcement will be out on Monday. Well anyway:
Have a good time & enjoy!
