After MANY, MANY YEARS I HAVE DECIDED TO UPDATE MY PROFILE! OH MY GOD THE WORLD IS ENDING!
Sup. I'm SQ. You can call me Q. No, you can't know what SQ stands for. It will forever be a mystery. :P
I came here in 2002 and stayed until around 2007. I've been off and on since, but I never really left willingly. From 2002 to 2007ish I went to AWA every year. When I get a permanent address or a stable living situation, I'd like to do that again. I love the community here, and I'd like to meet everyone!
I have an Associate's in Digital Video Production. Graduated in 2008.
I was a semi-pro editor and script writer for a very small company for about a year. Then the economy bombed and I lost pretty much everything. I joined the Navy, and am now an aviation electronics technician, I-level. After my year of being here, I am now a fire/flood/toxic gas fighter (member of flying squad). I plan to change my job to HT, which is basically a combination plumber/welder, but also deals with damage control stuff. I find it way more interesting than media communications. But I will still forever do video shit for a hobby!
My AMV History (re-written december 2011)
I first started editing after I saw Meri's old AMVs. But back then, I didn't have the computer nor the knowledge to make my own videos.
Time rolled by, and by the time I made my second video and started taking Video Production in High school, I found this site. I had seen a few of AtomX's Final Fantasy AMVs from Kazaa(P2P client, no longer available). I loved FFIX, and I was awed by what scenes he was using. He kept repeating scenes, and I was tired of it, convinced I could make a better video then he could.
Long story was I think I failed. But any game-based videos I've made, have been from inspiration by his videos. I still love Meri's AMVs. I think she and VegettoEX make a great pair.
Years and years have passed and friends have come and gone.
Due to my job (forward deployed US Navy) I can no longer be active in the AMV community.
However I still greatly enjoy it as a hobby, so I am trying to make at least one video a year.
I do not think I roll out anything stellar, amazing, or ground-breaking. I always refer to my videos as "average"... But somebody's got to set the bar in order for others to rise above it, am I right?
Anyway, I have fun with this hobby. I'm not in it for the awards or prestige anymore. So I will just share my own pleasure-driven works with you, and hope you enjoy them as well.
