  • Finding the inspiration again... 2015-06-03 10:20:31 So after starting to realize how to deal with work and understanding it only matters about what I do there. I've been able to free my mind and have been feeling a lot better. I started working on the MEP again and hope to have my portion done soon.

    I realized that I should work at the pace that I am confortable with. Even if it is faster than others, I shouldn't let them bother me when they tell me to slow down. If I slow down I don't feel like I'm accomplishing things and it makes for a miserable day.

    Anyways it felt great editing last night. Here's to finishing this project and working on my AWA project too.

  • Still dealing with stress and the hang over from Evolution... 2015-05-28 07:05:57 So I've been dealing with a lot of stress here at work. I really just want to relax and start editing again. Then there is a part of me that is dealing with the hang over from working on Evoluton. I really thought this was going to be the video to launch me into the AMV Contests. It seems like recently over the past several weeks its been missing finals after finals. I just can't help but to scratch my head why?

    Then I read a post on the forum that contests no matter what you do will probably be bias. I try to hold my judges to a higher level of judging when it comes to the finalist. We have no control over the audience. The audience will vote for what they enjoyed the most as they should. As a judging staffing you have to put that biasness away. Sure the contests are for the con goers, but we have an obligation to the editors to be fair towards them.  
  • I was reminded today... 2015-05-11 23:04:24 I was reminded today why I came back to editing. It was not to win awards or make every contest finals, but to enjoy making AMV's. Sure it's nice to make the finals and it's great if your video wins an award. However I need to find the spark of having fun again and not worrying about I have to do A+B+C in order to make a contest quality video. I have to remember to edit my style and from my inspiration. Thank you to Glory Questor, my friend Hayla, and Jellal from MTAC. I think I have found that passion again. Tomorrow after work I plan to be editing for our first MEP as Samurai Warriors Productions and then start on my solo project in late June.

  • Thinking about leaving the site... 2015-05-01 07:55:57 So it has come to my attention that I'm bothering people around here. I'm sorry I don't make the best judgement calls, I do what I think is best at the time. I care about you guys and appreciate the hard work you all put into your videos. As a contest coordinator I want to make sure the editors are getting the best treatment possible.

    As an AMV Editor I wanted to be here for the community. However it seems like I'm only getting in the way and I'm annoying everyone. I'm sorry to all the editors it was never my intention.

    So with that being said I think I'll be less active here on the org. You guys will only see post from me in the AMV Announcement section and the AMV Contest Section on the forum. And occasionally I'll do reviews if anyone post anything in the Op Exchange.

    News about Samurai Warriors Productions will be discuss amongst my studio members this weekend. I may be stepping away so I don't bring them down with me.

  • Evolution wins at Sabaku Con and other news... 2015-04-27 08:57:33 So late last night I just found out Evolution Won Best action at Sabaku Con and will be going to San Japan. I'm very happy for my new video. Also Sephirothskr won again with Lucy for Best Romance at Florida Anime Experience.

    This morning I woke up and checked the star scale ratings and found out Evolution was #1 this week. This is the first time ever I had a video rank number one on the star scale. Not sure how much weight that carries anymore but it still pretty cool.

    Besides that I'm back at work today and again it drags the mood down. I'm just trying to think about my AMV's and future projects. Plus I'm looking forward to doing some panels in the future at conventions. Then we have the multi-editor project coming up which should be a lot of fun.

    I'll be working on reviews all week long and getting caught up finally since I'm back on my normal work schedule. Rules for Nekocon should be posted this weekend.
