Itís been a while since my last update, and I have to say this spring has been a fun one for AMV contests. Iíve had the chance this year to submit to a few conventions that I wanted to submit to in the past, but did not due to not having a video ready. After getting started in this hobby in 2010 and looking through conventions to submit to on the A-M-V.org forum, Kawaii-Kon was one of the smaller conventions I wanted to submit to due to their awesome wood plaques. I was really excited to win best in showcase at Kawaii-Kon and receiving a phone call from them during the convention was really cool. I also decided this year that I would send to more small conventions to get more exposure for my videos and to help them out with their entry numbers. March was a good month and I ended up winning at quite a few contests, but that has also put pressure on me to make more videos so that I can continue to submit now that certain videos must be retired from the convention circuit. I am really looking forward to this summer and actually attending some conventions. Hopefully, I can pull some repeat wins at the conventions I am attending, and to anyone attending Animazement, Otakon, or Anime Weekend Atlanta, I hope to see you there!
Well that was exciting, I was very thrilled to make it to the finals on the first year I've participated in the VCAs. I won't lie and say I wasn't disappointed to find out I didn't win, but I couldn't have lost to better videos. Congratulations to all the winners! Y'all watch out though, I'll be editing full force this year to get back to the VCA finals again!
My First VCAs
Well, I never really paid attention to the VCAs before, so it's quite a new experience to me seeing what the community views as the best videos of the year. I'm pretty thrilled that my joint project with snapxynith has made it to the finals, was not expecting this when I came up with the concept last spring. Good luck to everyone in the finals! It's going to be a LONG week, haha...
What a Year
Wow, it's hard to believe the year is almost over, it was my first very active year in the AMV community and it has been a blast. It's interesting to look and see how I've developed and changed as an editor this year. Starting off with Rough Love, looking back I feel disappointed in my lack of effort that I put into that project and how much better that AMV could have been. Finishing up the year releasing Requiem of the Endless Eight and Clubbin' with Lupin, I feel they are two of my finest videos and I'm glad to see how much my editing has improved this year. I am looking forward to the new year and I am very excited to see how much more I can improve next year as well.
Woah...slow down there...
Iím not one to send one video to a ton of conventions, but after having Evangelion 0.22 Ė Shinji does (not) Mean Business rejected for content at Anime Mid-Atlantic, I decided to submit to a few extra, expecting the ones that said videos must be ďfamily friendlyĒ to reject the video. Very happy that people have enjoyed the video so far and I hope to come up with more videos that people enjoy just as much. My first two videos were only sent to spring conventions, so this was my first year to send to summer and fall conventions and I have to say that Iím happy that people enjoyed the videos. Hopefully one of these days I can attend more conventions that I submit videos to.
