First AMV I did completely on a nonlinear system--the Lightworks VIP suite at work. (tee hee)
I honestly haven't seen too many Bubblegum Crisis AMVs... the only other one I'm positive of is Corn Pone Flick's effort using Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild" almost 10 years ago.
I used the swift-moving Megadeth track "Crush 'Em" because it offered tons of points to sync up action on the beat, plus it's one of those songs that I couldn't stop editing in my head once I got the idea to use it in a video.
The end sequence, using very quick fades and cuts, showcases the concert scenes from the beginning of BGC 1.
Inexplicably failed to win recognition as "Best Staff" video at Anime Central 2001, but that's just my producer's pride talking... :)
My first AMV of 2001.

My hosting is gone. The site I uploaded my videos to was shut down. Lasted what, less than a week? Nice try, though. And it has served to get my stuff out to the Internet crowd. I've achieved a toehold with a new generation.
