The state of AMVs and all
Well, I hope to finish my second AMV this year...Lots of already great AMVs been made. Seems the gneral trend thease days is fast pasted strobe like action videos or those loded wit Special Effects. Seems to be that is what is being noticed the most. Nothing bad about it really, but I am starting to miss the days when videos didn't need all the flashy stuff to wow people but relied on the strength of the music and sences. Alas, the days of simple have drifted away... Oh well, I'm just as guilty in some respects of this kind of trend myself.. Funny thin is trends seem to come and go so maybe simple will be "in" again at some point...
Will be great to see everyome again at JACON, Otakon and AWA. As always, I look forward spending time with fellow creators both new, young or old... That's really what cons are all about in the end anyway...
Hmmm. Some people see the VCA awards as just a popularity contest, but funny thing about it this year was that there were som great video nominated and all diserved to win something...
Thanks to all those who watched my Transcending Love video. I very honored that fellow creator find by work to be artistic, this is what I really try to aim for in my videos even if they do contain lots of digital effects. I hope I can keep up making videos that bring enjoyment to those who watch them for that is the greated reward of any hobby one can ever want...
Well I'm pretty much done my first video of the year. As always, 100+ hours of work has gone into it but it turned out much better than I though so I hope people will find it just as enjoyable!
Now for a weeks break and off to work on the Disney DDR for JACON. Adter that I'll be working on my second video followed by finishing my track to the DDR4 project....
Also, ot's now official that I'll be running a AMV music video contest up here at the local convention in Edmonton...
Let again, it's going to by a busy spring and summer.. Oh well, I'll rest in the fall as usual.
The VCA thing
I never really have a problem with people giving thier opinion about someones music videos even if they don't like them or think they suck, but In Ashton's Journal Entry he leiterally slams one of my videos and even goes on to say that all his videos are way better compared to my video. This is comming from someone who wants the Best New Creator so badly he is begging people to vote for him.
My responce is that eventhough this is a journal entry, I feel thet this kind of response is really not appropriate. I really don't have a problem if soneone hates the video or does not like it for what ever reasons, but this is just a plain unjustifed slam in my opinion.
I can only hope that this kind of behaviour does not manifest itself on the formuns during or after the VCA awards....
I first must thank everyone who nominated me in the VCA contest. 7 whole nominations, wow. I know most people think this contest means nothing, but as with any recoginition I have gotton for any of my videos, I very honored that people do like some of my stuff...
For everyone who reads this and will vote, please try to download all the videods nominated and watch them (if possible). I feel all the videos nominated should have an equal chance of being considered when voting. I plan yo do the same and try to vote for the best video that fits each catagory.
Well, back to work on my newest video, I real happy how it's turned out and think it some of my best work yet...
