- Profile: Yo, I'm Kari. I've been editing videos as a hobby since around 2001 after seeing the inspiring works of Meri Cantoni (of TempleOTrunks), DBUtopia, Caster Troy (3G) and many more. In past years I've graduated from Ulead and Windows Movie Maker (so ghetto) to Adobe Premiere and After Effects, and I'm still struggling through learning how to use both programs to their full potential. I've really enjoyed being involved in the AMV community these past few years and hope to keep editing in my free time.
More personal info (as of summer '07).
I am entering University of California at San Diego (or UCSD) as a freshman in the fall to begin a long and painful trek through many GE courses and hopefully grab a degree in Visual Arts/Media (aka graphic design with a dash of information technology). With any luck, I'll be able to pull off a second major in music (I have no idea what concentration yet). I'm hoping to squeeze a few editing classes in there, if there are any :P
On a random note, I sat on an AMV panel at Fanime '06 with Brad DeMoss. Err, yeah.
