    "Life in a Beautiful World" is my 5th Anime Music Video in my 7 years of editing, and this is my very first multi-source AMV. This was an AMV I was supposed to make for a friend's birthday 2 years ago but never came to fruition until now. I started this 2 years ago, but never got around to finishing it because of uni commitments. This project only came up after another one of my AMV projects that I was going to make for Perth's WAI-con AMV competition would not be completed in time. So I resurrected this project and pretty much this is what turned out.

    For a long time now, I have been listening to this song since its release years ago by Coldplay. For so many years I have mistakenly called it "Beautiful World", mainly because its these two words that stand out in the whole song. Only last year did I find out that it was really called "Don't Panic". -_-

    Anyways, with this song, I wanted to show the beautiful worlds and the life associated with it from the many anime shows that we watch everyday. The scenes used have some association with the lyrics, but otherwise its just beautiful scenery that is in time with the lyrics, melodies and beats.

    The title chosen is pretty much self explanatory. I have tried to think a better title to come up with this AMV but in the end, this was it. :P

    I made this for WAI-con's Anime Music Video competition, which was held in Perth, Australia (on the West Coast). Being a judge at SMASH! AMV competition, and after watching the great AMVs that entered there, I made a goal that I wanted to try and at least win every AMV competition in every Australian con, when possible. The only exception is SMASH!, since staff can't enter the competition. :P I was very fortunate to make the journey to make the trip to the west coast with my dad and attend WAI-con.

    And guess what?

    I WON! I can't believe it... I actually won not one, but two awards at WAI-con! The crowd was cheering at the con! I never experienced something like this before... Haha so basically, this is my first win in my 7 years of editing... I must be that bad. -_-

    Anyways, that's all from me. Enjoy "Life in a Beautiful World!" :D
