The reason why I lost the AMV competitions I entered was because of the unpolished editing which I had absolutely no time to fix before the deadline, but that's another story entirely. Back on track.

For me, AMV editing is really fun! But I tend to get disappointed and when I'm taking my video editing skills to the next level and I don't succeed in the way I had once hoped. That's when it gets stressful. The AMV scene is a very intense and competitive scene to be a part of, (I'm talking in terms of AMVs in general, not just contests) the competitive pressure from the community is what really hits me the most, it stresses me out, but I guess that's just part of how it is. I will still make awesome AMVs!



Life is full of dispointments either keep trying or give up. I made over 100 vids before people even bothered to watch anything of mine. The only pressure that exists is the one you put on yourself. If you out for some kind of amv fame you're never gonna be happy with what you edit.

Thank you, I will go from there. I can now see that the first three AMV's I made are complete ass.
Usagi jumps in, gleefully, "Yes, Mina-Chan! That's true. Maybe if we continue to remain positive, even in this blackness that's filling the sky and air, we can draw the evil enemies out from their wretched hole."

Ami follows up, "Indeed, light dis-spells darkness, just as love overcomes hate."

Rei interrupts, "Shouldn't that be my line?"

Ami sweat drops, then continues, "The truth is, we just have to remain positive."

We all start some where. The couple amvs I have on my channel could be hit or miss but doesn't mean I can't be proud of them. Have fun with it!

Thank you! This is definitely a lot of fun! :D

Extremely comprehensive! I love it :D

I think my favorite part about your guide is that you include a section for "Motivation." People sometimes forget to focus on the emotion behind music videos, not just the technical strategies and stuff.

I think it's also important that you included a "Lessons neglected" section; this will really help people to follow their priorities when making a music video.

May I also add an extra tid bit? Anyone can find video editing courses online to maximize their abilities in the sections you mentioned and expounded on (MFGSSUS). I just thought I'd add a relevant link to help people sharpen their skills interactives, after reading your awesome guide:
http://www.valoso.com/blog/5-online-video-editing-courses-to-become-a-pro/

Btw, I think it's important that you started off some of your sections with questions. This engages the reader and helps him gain focus.

I've been a fan of AMV for about five years now and always wanted to make them, but never actually got to learning how to do it until now. This is very helpful, and very interesting, too. What I've done ever since I got into AMVs is, sometimes I would just listen to a sing and visualize an AMV to it. Interestingly my visualizations actually follow a lot of these guidelines or tips or however you want to call it. I hope that's a talent, but I guess I won't find out until I actually get to my first AMV! One bad thing about visualizations is probably, that whatever I visualized probably won't match the scenes I'm getting, but it still gives me a brief layout and a point to start at least. But I already know - whether I'm talented or not, I'll keep working until I become good. :P
