New job, could mean a return back to editing...
I really have not been editing much since Ani-mon. Just can't find the motivation to do so. However with my new job comes new problems. I just took a 55% pay cut so that means less going out and more staying at home. Does that mean more AMV editing Maybe. I have to find that fire again, the last few years of editing have not felt natural. Sure I have won awards with the videos I made but I'm torn. I'm not as good as I thought I was and don't have the confidence I need to move forward. I have ideas and I should run with them. I may need more from my consular on this, but I need to stop thinking about others opinions. Then maybe I can get back to the old style of editing I was doing.
More fired up than ever....
So after looking back at last year and knowing where I am at now. I'm not going to let fear get the best of me. I'm more determine than ever to create some amazing videos this year. I need to be determined and not let my fire die. I regret giving up in the past and I can't do it again. I'm ready to go! The road to Otakon and AWA begins now!
Debating about retiring once again...
So after the success of Evolution and Ani-mon, I'm left at a cross roads again. I realize I don't have the technical skills like a lot of the editors do. Part of me wants to keep editing just to do it, but I know I would not be a serious contender in action, upbeat or even drama. There is so much to learn. I'm also having a hard time coming up with a full idea from start to finish. So maybe a break is needed for now, after this project Seph and I are working on.
Anyways I need to go and clear my mind.
@Bote Went back and watch War of Wrath.
So I went back and watched War of Wrath. After all these years it still has an epic feel to me, it does not feel like a long AMV and yet it is over 5 1/2 minutes. That still is one of my favorite AMV's from you man. Here's to hopefully seeing new stuff from you.
Happy New Year everyone...
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone. Looking forward to another great year of AMVs
