My very first AMV

This forum is to announce newly created/released anime music videos.
Forum rules

  • Please limit your new threads (not replies) to one per week. If you have several new videos to announce, create one thread for all the videos. (Note: if you forget one you can edit your post!)
  • Offsite links are allowed, but you are required to have a catalog entry for that video as well. Threads announcing videos that do not contain a catalog entry will be moved to the Awaiting Catalog Entry sub-forum and will be deleted in 2 weeks if an entry is not created.
  • When posting announcements, it is recommended that you include links to the catalog entries (using the video ID) in your post.
  • Videos that do not contain anime are allowed to be announced in the Other Videos section and are not required to have catalog entries.

My very first AMV

Postby culchan » Mon Apr 30, 2018 12:27 am



I hope I'm doing this right...

Well, I made an AMV to one of my favorite mashups. I used iMovie, which is about as advanced as I can handle. I tried to lip-sync and beat match as best I could. I'm pretty happy with the Haruhi lip-sync that starts around 3:40.

If you decide to give it a watch, thank you for your time! Any thoughts are appreciated.

This is really your first AMV? This is massively ambitious and like 98% of it works really, really well.

I also feel like I've seen this video a few times before and more often than not, rather than being a big first step for a new editor, the idea of making a bigger/better second AMV just feels like too much to even conceive of let alone actually edit, and then we never hear from them again. So I hope you stick with editing and also try making a single-source AMV, because you've got a good sense of rhythm and definitely have the basics down.

Wow, really? Thank you!

I hope to keep editing; putting this together was a lot of fun! But I can also see why it could be hard to get to a 2nd project. I only came across AMVs about 2 months ago, and I haven't watched anime since Star Blazers and Robotech (I'm really old, btw), so I feel like I've used up my good clips and good ideas. But watching AMVs has got me watching anime again, so hopefully I'll pick up some more good stuff to edit before too long.

Thanks for the encouragement!
