I really enjoyed myeslf when making this AMV, because I knew all the while
I was editing it how much the song was just made for Hand Maid May. So you
can expect a lot of gag scenes (where the clip correlates with what the
song lyrics are saying) and the entire AMV in a whole is just very ditsy
and flighty. Lemme give you an example of the lyrics at one point in the
"I'm a barbie girl, in a barbie world
Life is plastic, so fantastic!
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation . . ."
I found clips that correlated with each one of those sentences almost
exactly in the 1st episode ;) Very cool. Anyways I didn't use many Video
FX in this, just a few fades and splashes of single frame tints here and
there. I concentrated a lot on my timing this time round (in light of my
Make Love and War AMV)and the timing in this is something that I'm proud
of. Also there are quite a few examples of lipsync, I used overlays in
every one of them so the characters talking
didn't look like cheap wooden dolls with ye
olde badly acted "Kung Fu" style dubbing.
Though I recognised when I was half way
through making it that the song got a bit
repetative, and I was running out of ideas to
keep the AMV interesting and entertaining. I
had to cut it short. Nevertheless I was still
very pleased with what I had.
