Glad i did this. Didn't have this much fun editing a AMV since 2009. I tried to make a pretty straight forward summary to Eden Of The East. I played a lot with photoshop in this and got some pretty fine results. I still have to get better though but this is a start.
I got the Idea earlier this year when watching the Amerian Reunion Trailer but couldn't edit it due to commitments towards the FACTION sequel FRACTION and the Wingman: Men Of Steel sequel Wingman: Final Frontiers. At times i was thinking about quiting on Wingman and just starting this already but i'm glad i didn't. When September came and went i talked to JadeCharm about this idea of mine and her thoughts towards it. After getting her approval i started preparing footage and finally started editing on the last weekend in October. It should be added that a Skype conversation with Kiriforce also had significat input in getting me to edit. Starting something is always the hardest for me. I finished up on November 24 and it got released on Akross on November 30.
Because of watching Helge Schneiders Texas before starting to edit this, while working i refered to this as Project Texas. However, originally this was called Project LAST due to my early 2012 creative blockade and thoughts of quitting AMV editing. However, i overcame that low so, yeah it's not the last. I'm not done yet. I came up with the name Runaway Boy about half way into the AMV. It occured to me that he is always running away from the Girl but there is also a double meaning to the word runaway which is quit fitting to the character.
The announcement Poster for this AMV was created from a picture i took in Chinatown Manhattan when visiting New York in May this year. I found a fan art, that was suiting the purpose and did cut out the characters to place them in the scene.
Runaway Boy was made solely for AkrossCon2012. I participated in 2010 sending in Dealing with Life and had lots of fun doing so. I tried to return in 2011 but couldn't get that AMV to work. When it came to my editing plan for 2012 it was clear, that one AMV would go to AWA+Connichi while the other would got to Akross. Wingman: Final Frontiers went for Connichi so Runaway Boy was locked for Akross. The contest is currently running and i hope to make it into the final selection again.
