Nightowl Pictures - Brian's Song

So I made a new video with the help of Brian Moore and Mike Barranti. It's awesome. But you won't get it. Or maybe you will... Anyway, here's the link: Brian's Song Brian challenged me to do it so I could enter something at AUSA. Then I forced him to do a segment. Then Barranti. It was great. It won...

I wasn't aware that anyone had a problem with certain AMV creators expressing artistic endeavors through their videos. Or, at least, no one has ever complained to me about them that I recall. Other than the ocassional "Playground Love was boring" comment, comments tend to applaud the more somber, ar...

then try, say, TRSI's Kare Kano release sometime. NOOO! That's the point anyway, right? :) I'm glad I went with the old fashioned way for Playground Love now. However, I think we did use AVISynth with that one, so it's moot. Also, the discs I had were bootlegs. I don't know what the Kare Kano relea...

Heh, I still capture manually. I think two or three of my videos used ripped footage, gambitt might remember but I don't. I'm pretty sure none of Playground Love was ripped, it was all captured. Mad World might've been ripped, but those Synch Point FLCL discs are godawful anyway. Hell, I still cut at 29.97 for a lot of stuff. Yes, I'm admitting this, even though it isn't the popular norm amongst AMV people.

One reason is I CAN'T use any of the guides or programs. I can't Read ErMaC & AbsoluteDestiny's Friendly AMV Guides or whatever. I'm on a different goddamned system. I suppose I simply have a problem blindly following a certain faith when I know there are other options I could try. Whether or not they work, at least I've tried them so I know what can and cannot work for the future.

It may surprise people, but the vast majority does not think beyond "hey, there's a free script." They'll take it and go with it. If you're trying to get the thousands of DragonBall Z and Naruto videos to look good while sucking, well, I'd say that mission is well on its way to working. Just wait for the majority to figure that one out. It sucks ass but damn, it looks okay. I'd just like it if people would actually think about what they're doing. Maybe then the videos themselves wouldn't be so cookie-cutter, I suppose.

I would love to be part of the technocracy. Maybe then I could partake in some conversation rather than being ostrasized for using a system that was built primarily for work and yet is not part of the crowd around here. It's a programmer's paradise in what should be considered an artform. I'm not talking about AMVs as a hobby, I'm talking about the art of editing.

All right, I'm tired of typing, and none of this will ever do any good anyway. I should've just started sucking Ian's dick with the majority rather than drinking with him. Perhaps I simply have an inability to go along with what's popular, whether it's right or not. I suppose that's why I'm not a Christian.

You know what I do like? Interesting conversation and differing opinions. That seems to have come out a bit in this thread. Mayhaps someone should start a thread that has a bit more to do with Hsien's hijack :)

It won't be me. I'm too lazy at the moment.

Kusoyaro and I were talking about the whole AVISynth scripts and I do believe you guys are missing the point. Everyone immediately assumes that one MUST use that particular system. It creates an atmosphere of carbon copy footage. It removes the heart and soul of the process. It's boring. There are a...

Heh, the first contest I've entered where I've ended up in the comedy category. I am no longer confident. However, it is amusing to me that Barranti will be competing against himself, sort of.

I believe the question was what is the main purpose of an AMV, not the creation of an AMV. If you were asking what is the AMV's purpose, there are many solutions, though one could not answer them, for it is the AMV's role in society to provide such an answer. Had the question been what is the purpos...
