This is my second completed AMV. Took about two weeks of initial editing with Vegas 5.0 to finish. Then I didn't touch it for over a month, and then went back to it and tweaked a few things. By then it was time to send it off to Animazement, which also marks this as my first convention video. It didn't win any awards, but I don't mind.
I'm a big Gundam fan, and around the time I was making the AMV, a friend of mine kept playing a Van Halen CD in his car and I got hooked on this song. I also set out to make this AMV because of the lack of interesting Gundam 0080 vids that I've seen. They all seem to be rather dramatic and cookie-cutter-esque. I wanted one to an upbeat song that focused not on Bernie, but on Al, and his dream of being a mobile suit pilot. Hence the choice of Dreams by Van Halen. I suppose if you think about, the video highlights the dreams of all the main characters. Al's piloting dreams, and Bernie & Kris's (sp?) dreams to be with each other and fight for their respective causes at the same time.
Personally, I think this vid is a whole lot better than my last one, which can't even really be considered a music video. Hope you all enjoy it.
