  • Profile: NOTE: PROFILE NEEDS UPDATES. THAT IS ALL. CARRY ON.

    Hi! My name is Mike. I've been "into" anime since approximately 1996. I've been heavily into AMVs for the last several years, having initially been drawn in by the AMV contest at Otakon 2000.

    I should also mention I've been maintaining a "DragonBall" fansite since 1998. The current incarnation, Daizenshuu EX, currently resides at: www.daizex.com. There you'll find information on the series, news, a weekly podcast, and (of course) parallel information on all of these videos.

    The whole AMV scene for me started by viewing the (crap) AMVs that DBZ fansites would put out. I knew they sucked, but never really understood why. It wasn't until I downloaded a few videos by some (that will remain) un-named AMV creators that had GOOD videos that I started understanding precisely why they sucked.

    I guess it was when I met my girlfriend, Meri, that I began to dive into the actual production of AMVs. After getting to know Meri and her love for AMVs, we both began a growth process together with our productions. For the record... New Jersey has the best group of editors, both in terms of talent and general personal awesomeness. Just sayin'.

    CURRENT EDITING RIG:
    Dell XPS 710
    Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.66 GHz
    3 (technically 4) GB RAM
    Windows XP Media Center Edition
    NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS
    Dell widescreen LCD
    Ridiculous hard drive space
    Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000
    A nice stereo hooked up to the computer
    Some other computers lying around
    Some Netstream and Hollywood+ cards

    The last time I captured footage was for the "Mozarto de Kiko" video, since that was VHS-source. Since then, everything has been created (and is being created) from the direct ripping of DVDs.
