  • Profile: I started watching Dragonball Z when I was in middle school, leading to other animes such as Trigun, Princess Mononoke, Perfect Blue and Vampire Hunter D. Some time in the middle of high school, I caught a glimpse of some Kenshin AMV set to Stabbing Westward's Torn Apart. Getting more into them, I came across Hsien Lee's Kyoto Kombat and was hooked. I began tinkering with Adobe Premiere and Windows Movie Maker. I made several attempts at videos then, after a brief fit of depression, deleted them.

    I re-gathered my efforts and made a few several more, leading me to make Quahog Kombat, a spiritual parody of Kyoto Kombat and the first video of mine people ended up really liking. I moved onto using Adobe Premiere and eventually Final Cut Pro. I became increasingly involved in the AMV community until 2005, when I felt myself drifting away from both the Org's community and the hobby itself. Some of this has to do with the Org's community becoming less fun and overly-regulated.

    Life has become a lot busier in the past few years, leaving me with little time to create AMVs but my list of video ideas gets longer every day. I try to create some for conventions if I can, particularly my local one, Kumoricon. Ultimately however, I've become more interested in editing itself as opposed to anime. What this means for my presence in the AMV community, I don't know. But what I've learned about editing since making them are lessons I take with me into future professional opportunities. My goal is to be able to edit film trailers, feature films and music videos and someday become a member of the American Cinema Editors.

    We shall see. ;)
