Do you see yourself making amvs 5-10years from now?
No, but I'm optimistic. I don't want to be in the same place 6 years from now. If I am, I'll probably still be making amvs. If I'm not in the same place, I won't have time for amvs. I have hopes to make fan parody vids eventually (animated fanart, think unofficial hentai videos ;p ). But I don't see fanvids as amvs any more than I consider doujinshi as manga.

Do you think amvs will die out?
Amvs as *I* know them are already dying out. Less than 2 yrs and there are fewer and fewer of what I call anime music videos [emphasis on anime]. If you want hard-core, easily proven/disproven predictions...

Large online communities distributing amvs (including IRC channels) will go completely underground within 8 years. Those that are slow in adapting will die expensive deaths.

Amv contests at conventions will be severely limited within 5 years. Public sharing of copywritten material will be limited to videos using 'agreed-upon' anime and songs. Nothing else will be accepted. Some editors will bow to this, others will boycott the restrictions for the ideal of amvs as 'art'.

American anime fans will still be making videos in private 15 years from now, with easier access to equipment and music, and very limited access to anime due to new import laws.

In 20 years, the buzz over amvs being 'illegal' will die down again and new creators will rediscover the fun of matching anime footage to music.

In 35 years the United States will be so busy making new laws for the ruling class, no one will care about some kids stealing clips from a Japanese dvd.

How long you plan on making amvs?.
At least another year, probably 3 more years. I would like to be finished using 'premade' footage within 1.5 years. It really depends on whether or not I get hooked on a new series that keeps me occupied for half a year. Barring new 'mini-obsessions,' I'll be done with amvs in a year or two. ^_^;

Since I'm an out-of-college guy with a complex, full-time job, I don't know, but I hope to be. :)

Do you think amvs will die out?

Who knows? If someone from the RIAA points his/her finger at the AMV community and says "Die!", is that necessarily a "Power Word - Kill"? (I don't think so.)

AMVs will most likely be around as long as the music and animation industry thrives. The more music and animation out there, the more great ideas will surface. :)

How long you plan on making amvs?.

As long as I have the free time to. But, I'm getting older and getting more responsibility at work, so my free time might start to dry up at any time.

God, I hope not. I really hope I have other things to do....even though I'm slowly letting go of the hobby already.

See Arigatomina's post.

How long you plan on making amvs?.

I never planned on making them in the first place, and I never plan my projects. It just takes me being very bored and not feeling like doing anything else. If I suddenly feel like going to vid editing as a last resort for entertainment, thats what I go to.

I want a career in making stuff like commercials and movie trailers. I suppose anime trailers would be kind of like AMVs, but I dunno. I still don't know what I want to do with my life.

But for now making AMV's remains a hobby of mine. =)

Ive never really looked far into the future so i have no clue what i will be doin.

If anything could decrease the popularity of amvs, its prolly what was mentioned already: the RIAA

As for when I stop, i think that will be the moment its stops being somehting i do for fun.

5, yes. 10? Pft, no.

I plan on owning my own country in seven years, developing a solid government in one year, and then slowly corrupting it with a combination of capitalism and extreme liberalism until my ultimate demise two years later when I'm, hopefully, assassinated while drunk on extremely expensive alcohol that tastes no different from the cheap stuff.

I've got it all planned out. 8-)

1) No. I even lack inspiration now. :P

2) Not likely.

3) I'll probably produce some more this year and then it's time for college and marriage, so most likely I'll stop with the beggining of 2006.

Do you see yourself making amvs 5-10years from now?

This depends on the way I´ll follow after I´ll leave school. But certainly I´d like to see my self making videos in the future.

Another thing is the satisfaction I'll get by making them, cause if theres noone who like my videos (and if I stop liking them myself) I'll stop making them.

Do you think amvs will die out?

Yes maybe it's just a temporary trend set by a minority of people and when this gets big (like it does at the moment) it's doomed to die out because it'll be hard to find good pieces in all the trash and most of the good editors will loose interest. Altough I doubt that the spirit within the amv culture will last much longer cause there are not much good newcomers like Bakadeshi or so. And the day every "native-amver" left the scene amvs are dead.

How long you plan on making amvs?

- As long as I have people that really watch them
- As long as I enjoy making them
- As long as I have the capability's and the opportunity

1. It's sad how many of the greats are answering this question "no". But I suppose generations come and go in all things... Personally I have been unable to edit for so much of the time I have been an AMV fan due to lack of equitment that the answer is probably yes.


2. Are you crazy? Unless they get banned and heavily prosecuted there's no way that's going to happen. There might be lessened growth without anime on american TV but...

Five years ago, if you had predicted that the org would see 50-80 easily accesable new videos per day people would think you were nuts. We have, what, 300 thousand members now?


3. I won't stop untill I reach a high level of technical compitance and possibly move on to other artistic or (hopefully) comercial ventures, but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for AMV's and I'll be watching the scene.

But before I reach that high technical level (Not for recognition, just for self fufilment) I will always have that desire to get better nagging at me in the form of effect laden car commercials. :wink:

Do you see yourself making amvs 5-10 years from now?
Yes.

Do you think amvs will die out?
No. It's a creative outlet... if painting goes out of style, so will amvs.

How long do you plan on making amvs?.
I see no end... even from my grave I will be editing them.
I have sinned. I made a video I wanted to make that was music + anime + sync + action + effects/transitions. Oh lordy. :roll:
