Holy shit thats a good one Image

In my experience, the bulk of female action videos I see lack that certain visceral punch that can only be achieved with the help of a penis. That inexplanable joy that overcomes the viewer while watching Goku go Super Sayain and whoop Freeza's ass to the tune of Superbeast is an experience that a penis truely understands at its core. Vagina's can theorize all they want but their hormones arent pumping around ASS KICING JUICE so it will never be the same. Big strong people beating eachother up for no discernable reason IS awesome and it always HAS been awesome.

the only reason they should do an all female multi editor project is if they have something to prove. And they don't really have anything to prove that they haven't all ready. If a group of females want to do it fine, but I'm pretty sure groups of females have done this already. There's no point in doing this, unless theres some sort of point trying to be made! o_O, and if theres a point trying to be made what so ever over a project like this, it's a bit fuzzy for me to see one

When I first saw this thread I was kinda surprised - This is the first post I've seen in a while that attempts to show some sort of divide between male and female editors.

I think that's pretty impressive about the community - there really is no sexism. There may be a natural overabundance of male editors, but at the same time female editors aren't treated as female editors, they're treated as editors. I don't see any reason to highlight female editors because that's saying that there's a difference in how they edit.

well there really isn't any distinct difference. as far as music and anime choices, it's totally random as depending on the mood or whatever, pretty much any anime or song is up for grabs, and there are so many ways in editing i strongly doubt anyone here is going to take the time to find a distinct m/f flava.

:?

To be honest I cannot stereotype an amv created by a male or female. I can make the assumption that mostly males make amvs... but that's certainly no guarantee that a guy made a given video... so if there's an all female project ... what's the point? While the concept is somewhat original I dunno what the motivation would be... it's not as though guys specifically get together on a project and cry out WATCH OUR AMVS GO BOOM ON THE SCREEN AND NOTICE THAT WE ARE NOT FEMALE! ... well not yet at least.

If there was a reason such as "females can't get into projects like RVG" or "males always try to hit on females when they join a project" then maybe there'd be some logic. I don't think our community is that bad... sure there is plenty of desperation(haha)... but the gap between male and female editors isn't so large in the amv world. On the NES project we had one female editor. Did it make the slightest difference? Nope. I don't think we bothered her any more or any less than the rest of the editors. She was another editor on the team to make something for people to enjoy watching.

I think a decent question is... why would you want to rally together a specific group of people when you could meet and learn from so many more by not having restrictions and limitations? On the projects I've directed with Castor and MJ our only limitation is our faith in the editor to make a quality video.

I've probably taken the topic too seriously... but I really get sick of all the divisions we have in society based on anything and everything that could possibly group us together.
I have sinned. I made a video I wanted to make that was music + anime + sync + action + effects/transitions. Oh lordy. :roll:

I'm for this whole thing mainly because I have this habit of thinking some editors are female that really aren't...

... victims include.. bakkadeshi, savia, janzki,... etc |:

this forum moves fast.

i would like say that it was not my intention to put this as the typical "female vs man" lol no.
i visit this site some time beofre start the account ijust though to write this not because i want to put division.

yes my english sucks :P so maybe i choose wrong expression.

i try to understand the complicated guide maybe will make some videos later ,right now is not easy.

peace :)

"hy would you want to rally together a specific group of people when you could meet and learn from so many more by not having restrictions and limitations"

I am in agreement.

We already have a fair amount of female editors getting credit anyways, if silver_moon, sierra_lorna, BBT (EK), Arigatomina, MeriC, Anneke, and LadyDX are any testament. I think everyone is beginning to see female editors as viable editors anyway.

For now it may be that these members have a slightly exalted status, but I think it's slightly different. Any editor is getting the credit he or she deserves. That's how I've seen it, anyway.

I say dew it. For the raw statistic that states "there's too many man editors that stink up the place". [yes I'm a man too dur...]

I don't think it'd be fair to see this project as a "we are women hear our editing ROAR" but more like a "yes girls do this too" kinda setup.

There's just too much testosterone in this place, [or any place for that matter] and hey, if a bunch of girls want to stick together like bricks in a wall and have major fun, who are we men to stop them?

"OMW I hope they all get together and do this project. I can't wait until it's done and I will say it's great whether it is total ass or not because they are female and I will have a better chance of becoming friends or something more because I can compliment their work... and at cons they will all be together and wow the possibilities to expand my pathetic life are on the rise if only this project goes through!"

Exploitation?

And why would that be? Do any of the "cool band of the week" MEPs have anything to prove? Or better yet, do any of the MEPs have anything to prove?

Seriously, why can't this just be something that we'd do for the heck of it?

Anyway, it's just another MEP pitch. I said that I'd be interested in doing it, but it's not something that I'd bother to start up or anything.

ok why does there have to be a point? maybe it's just me, but the idea sound like just some fun little thing. not like this whole big-ass sexual boundary between anime freeks. it's harmless and fun in my understanding. but at least now we know where everyone stands on the whole gender issue
