I'm back....I'll be releasing a new video that will Premiere at Anime USA this year. My first video in nearly 3 years. Alot of stuff has happened over that time. Moving a handful of times, a new job, college and what not. I have missed making amv's, but it has been a lot of fun judging AMA's AMV Contest. So not like too many of you care, but for what its worth I'll be making a few new amv's by the end of this year.
A little about myself. My name is Bryan and I live in Maryland. I'm going to college part time at UMBC. I've been to several conventions since 2002. I've cosplayed as Markus on of my own characters that I was writting for an anime series, Gene Starwind from Outlaw Star, InuYasha, and now this year Kabuto Yakushi. I'm also into playing D&D, and Magic the Gathering. I got inspired by alternatefutures "Light of Day" amv that was in the Otakon Contest back in 2002. When I make amv's my main goal is to tell a really strong story. I'm not too much of a special effect person. I only use digital effects to enhance a scene in my video and make it stand out. So the digital effects highlight some more of the important stuff that is going on normally. Its been a lot of fun over the years making amv's and getting feedback on them by other editors.
List of Cons I'll be attending this year:
Anime Mid Atlantic
Anime Festival Orlando
Anime Weekend Atlanta
Anyways here are my 5 most downloaded amv's in the past year.
5. Shrine of the Goddess 2
4. Over Dramatic Uber Sentimental Outlaw Star Music Video
3. Fighting For Your Love
2. Sending Freedom
1. Hunters or the Hunted
These amv above here are probably some of my better works that I have done. Especially Sending Freedom and Back to Paradise. Any videos that date from Belldandy's Memories and back were made in MGI Video Wave 4 and then any videos dated from Pain of War and after were done in Adobe Priemere 6.0.
Hunters or the Hunted if you like listening to underground music then I think you'll like this video. Not everybody is into this type of music but I thought it would be interesting to use a song that I wrote the lyrics for. Originally it was just going to be something I had a band recorded for fun but as the song developed so did an idea for an AMV.
If you would like some honest feedback on your work and a detailed review send me an email at genestarwind email@example.com. I'll try to get to it when I have the extra time available. So give me about 3-5 days if you send me the email.
Well its been a little over 4 years now since I've started working on amv's.
