Larger Than Life was my first AMV. I had crappy hardware and buggy software, but I still think it came out well for a first video. I've seen numerous AMVs and too many of them have long boring scenes. I try to avoid that and make nice short scenes that corelate with the lyrics and make use of every beat possible. You'll notice tons of synchronized sections in this video, some of them accidental :) This video was the inspiration for Aluminum Studios' version of Larger Than Life which took second place at Katsucon007. I'm honored that my first video was an inspiration for my AMV idol, Aluminum Studios.
The response to my video when it premiered at Otakon was anything but comforting. There's bad crowds and then there was Otakon. Someone even had the nerv (pardon my Evangelical spelling. Trade disease ^_^) to crank down the stereo while my video was playing during the first showing, and all because of my song choice. I was under the impression that people there weren't watching the videos, but the titles for them looking for the best song instead. In a way I'm glad that it happened, for if it didn't, I wouldn't have had the motivation to go on and work even harder and create This Isn't What We Meant.
