What do you do when you're stuck and you can't think of a song?

Post by EpicMango » Tue Feb 27, 2018 6:47 pm

That's where I am right now. I think I want to make a FMA amv but not getting inspiration.

Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

If there's a anime that I want to edit with, but can't think of a song, I usually just edit with something else until I get a idea for it. But if you're really eager to find something, then you can always just google key elements of the show and add "lyrics" at the end. Often times, you'll find a anime/ song combo that you never realized fit before

What kind of video do you want to make?

Why do you want to edit with FMA?

What do you want to say about the series or how do you want viewers to feel when they're watching it?

I've made some fma amvs before but I think I can make a better one. I want Ed to be the main focus of the video. I'm currently editing one but don't know if the music is right.

What I'd like to add/say/warn here is that for one you absolutely shouldn't force an idea. If you want to edit with FMA and don't know what song to use, don't worry about it too much.. ideas will come eventually. If you forcefeed some song into the anime, it won't be as fun nor inspirating to edit and the result will be half-assed and that will show through the finished AMV.

How the inspirations and ideas work for me is that I simply listen a lot of music, and when there's a song I like I start to combine it in my mind with anime series I know. When a combination just 'clicks', you will know it. :)

Thanks. I found a song since then, hope the amv I'm working on turns out ok.
