  • Comments: Onegai's first music video. Created with Adobe Premiere 5.1c using DVD quality footage. Took about a month to create, including a lengthy revision period after viewing and attending the panels at AWA 6.

    I had just finished matriculating at the Georgia Institute of Technology in August 2000 when I started working on this video. For my birthday I had bought the Magic Knights Rayearth DVD box set and I felt empowered to do something with all those high quality DVD's. Having been a fan of AMV's for awhile previously (mostly through downloading on IRC) I had a lot of good examples to work from.

    A major turning point was going to AWA 6 and attending the AMV track. AWA has been a leader in AMV programming for about as long as AMV's have been around. Seeing some of my favorite creators speak was hugely motivational and really helped solidify a desire to succeed. When I came back, I used all of the valuable lessons I learned. In particular, I remember somebody teaching about the opacity rubber band in Premiere that weekend! I had no idea that crucial feature existed before!

    In theory this video gives roughly equal screen time to all three of the magic knights, but in reality there's a lot more footage of Umi in it. At the time it was being worked on, I was trying to impress this girl who was a big fan of Umi so I made sure to include as many clips of her as I possibly could. O the joy of youth!
