WINNER: Best Overall AMV AI Con 2006
Welcome to the first ever video produced by Amvience Studios, in collaboration with other great AMV creators from all over the place, meeting together in the Amvience Studios forums. This video composition is a result of the crew daring to put together something which is not only hard on its own but even moreso when it wasn't really the style of anyone in the group, specifically, a dance mix video.
First and foremost, this video was created to compete in the emerging anime convention in Hobart, Australia, AI Con (Anime Island Convention). In the competition itself, the videos were split into their separate songs as they would have been disqualified for being over the time limit and the introduction you see in this mixed version doesn't exist in the Take Me Away segment shown on the competition (rather is a full track AMV done to Noein). The idea was brought to the open on January 1, 2006 and soon after production started. AI Con AMV competitions themselves closed on the 18th of February, and essentially, the full video was completed by 10th of February. In essence, this was probably a rather short time, but the results were great nonetheless.
Piyush Juneja... what does this mean? It's a case of extreme relaxation, sometimes attributed to consumption of curry. It is a name chosen as we were trying for a unique and artistically open interpreted theme as in essence, this video has a variety of editing style depending on not only who is doing the editing but also on the scenes being portrayed. The term Nine Tailed Mix might have its roots in the whole Naruto universe but it was only chosen in this case for there were 9 AMV creators who participated in its making.
