Here's the video I created for the first AMV online tournament (http://www.fantasy-movies.net/homenew/concours.php) organized by Fantasy-Movies.
My opponent was Olw and the song that had been picked up was Compass by Asian Kungfu Generation.
The first anime that came in mind where I heard that song was Fullmetal Alchemist. Despite the fact the band was also used for the last opening of the anime, I felt that it really would feet to this, and that I could construct something solid with the characters, and keeping the rhythm up.
I knew that it would hard as hell to win over Olw, so I focused my video on what I think I do the best, ie giving a rhythm and an ambiance to the video, and constructing something interesting with the anime.
As Olw is nearly an expert in effects, I knew that I wouldn't have a chance on this aspect ;) (just check its video to see his AE skills).
So, in the end, I think I'm quite proud of the result, despite some scenes or effects that could have been improved, but with only 2 weeks to make a video, it's impossible to make this perfect (and even with and eternity I think...).
I won the match 3 votes to 2 (a very tight match according to the judge).
Now, please enjoy :)
