Finally, after two months of hard work, my video is finally done.
This is the video which will hopefully change the outlook on the YuGiOh genre of AMV's. Yes, you heard me correctly; a YuGiOh AMV. I know what you're thinking: "Wow, he probably did this in two hours, using some bad quality clips he downloaded from Kazaa to some punk rock song". Normally, you'd be right, but this video fits none of those stereotypes. As I already said, I did two months of work on this video; I did work on it about 4 out of 7 days a week, putting about an hour or two into each segment I worked on. I used the Japanese DVD's to make this video, so the video is unedited and very high quality, and as it is, the footage I used in this video is a few months ahead of where the KidsWB YuGiOh currently is. And for three out of three, no, I didn't use Linkin Park or some stupid punk rock song to make this some mindless action video with no synchronization to the music at all...
...The song I used was very different. It's a piece called "Destiny", which is a remix from the ZOE(Zone of the Enders) game. It's a beautiful masterpiece of sound, and I was in love with it when I found it. There are only two problems with this song; one being that I don't know who made it. since it was a custom remix, so I can't give credit to the artist, and two, the song was never finished. The biggest problem is that the song was never finished, and because of this, the song ends on an odd note, making it nearly impossible to bridge it into a dramatic end unless I added some synthesized elements of my own, which I don't posses the ability or the software to make. It was my executive decision to end the song on a fade, since I want to avoid that nasty cut out; it was the best thing I could think of at the time.
In any event, my main purpose for this video was simply this: there are a handful of horrendous YuGiOh AMV's on the net; I wanted to make a good one to the YuGiOh name. Now I know that I'll never see all the YuGiOh AMV's on the net, and I know that some people who did work on their's might think theirs is good, but from what I've seen, there are no really good AMV's to hold up YuGiOh's name.
I put a lot of time and effort into this video, and the only part I can truly say I don't like is the ending, since I feel it is a bit weak. Otherwise, I'd say a pretty decent video.
As always, enjoy the video, and if people like it, I'll keep putting out more. :D
EDIT (7/5/2007): So, after about two years of not having the actual source for this video (since my old PC died), I managed to find someone hosting it on some site, so I kindly downloaded it from them. Even though I'm sure people aren't going to be watching this video anytime soon, I'm going to host it sooner or later so in the event that people want to watch it, they can.
