This was my first AMV. Actually, it was my first video, PERIOD. The idea had been floating around in my head for years, but I never got around to doing it until I finally learned video editing at school. To be more precise, the class I made this for was a "make-any-multimedia-project-you-want-to" type deal, so I jumped the gun and taught myself Premeire Pro while making the first draft. I then refined it into the version you see here when I finally got into a formal editing class.
The footage is obviously Sailor Moon, the gateway drug of me and probably a thousand or so girl otakus. I was lucky enough to get ahold of uncut copies of seasons 1 and 2 before the lisence ran out, so I used those instead of my ratty old VHS recordings.
The song is from the Vangelis album "Heaven and Hell," which originally came out about thirty years ago, and yet it fits so well with the initial story of Sailor Moon.
NOTE: The video requires Quicktime 7 to view. Downloading the veiwer is easy to do at Apple.com, but it will overwrite any older versions of Quicktime Pro you happen to have, so be careful!
So anyway, I hope you will enjoy it!
