AMV Heaven - Join Thread

Post by Garylisk » Sun Oct 23, 2005 7:25 pm

READ CAREFULLY!

AMV HEAVEN

OK, so, here's the deal...

Please, do not say anything about AMV Hell Ripoffs, because this ISN'T. I had this idea LONG before AMV Hell existed. However, it was NOT a MEP idea back then, nor did it have a title. The title, yes, is a nod to AMV Hell.


Basic premise
Have you ever had a song that was just absolutely PERFECT for an anime... but the problem is, only one part of the song was perfect, and the rest of the song just didn't work? Like, this one verse, or the main refrain, just work perfectly.. but you could NEVER make a full AMV to it. Now, we can.

Just like AMV Hell was bad, painful, and all-around torturous, AMV Heaven is the opposite. AMV Heaven is going to be full of GREAT AMVs that just can't quite span the whole song.

Don't think on terms of good and evil, though. AMV Heaven doesn't necessarally have to be all sappy, romantic, dramatic videos. At long as it's a great idea, you can fly with it.

This is a test run, read on

Basically, what I want to do with this, is make a short project. We need a few tracks to put together and see if the project will be interesting, or a snore. If it ends up being a good thing, we will be able to make AMV Heaven 2, which will be longer, though probably not as long as AMV Hell 3. :P

So, for right now...

I need 10 editors with awesome AMV ideas.

Each editor is to do one track. You can pick the audio, you can pick the video, but there are guidelines.

1. Video and Audio quality must be good! I don't care if you are using downloaded footage, but it needs to look good! No fansubs, please, unless you can avoid using scenes with subtitles.
2. No hentai. Nudity is allowed to an extent, but nothing sexual. Go by what you'd be able to put on the donut, and you'll be ok.
3. Same thing goes with overly graphic violence. Some is good, too much is not.
4. There is no time limit on your tracks, but honestly, if you're able to do a whole lot of the song, shouldn't you just be making a normal AMV instead of a track for this project? :P
5. Entries are to be submitted to me in a good quality format. HuffYUV, Quant 1 or 2 XviD, and registered Lossless MJPEG will all be accepted.
6. A deadline will be set once we have our 10 editors. That deadline needs to be met.

OK, that's about all I can think we would really need as far as guidelines.

Let's hop to it, folks! If you want in, just go ahead and sign up by replying to this thread.

Damn. I really wish I could join this. I need to get my technical stuff down better first. Oh well. Let's hope this goes well, and maybe I can be in a future project. Good luck to those who are participating.

Only thing that could hold me back from this is the deadline but cause we are decieding on this together it might be cool ^^

Pick an awesome one for AMV Heaven, and if this does well, there shall be AMV Heaven 2, where you will not have a track limit.

If you have ideas that are absolutely burning at your brain, message me, and we'll see.

At this point, I might be doing 2 tracks myself...

Speaking of which, here's the two main ideas I am working with right now:

IDEA #1

Anime: Fruits Basket
Song: Tracy Bonham - Mother, Mother
Genre: Comedy

IDEA #2
Anime: Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid
Song: Institute - Bullet-Proof Skin
Genre: Drama/Downbeat

I'm up for it. I have two songs that have useable lyrics that I've already matched to anime. One I almost certainly will never get around to using for an AMV - the song itself is waaaay too long normally, and has a lot of instrumental breaks as well.

Question though - are we doing only songs? Or are other sound bytes allowed - quotes from movies, and such?

Lemme know what you're thinking, and I'll let you know whether or not I think it'll be ok. :P

Movie quotes and such are more of AMV Hell's thing, I think... But let me know what you're thinking.

I love the idea, but I've got too much on my plate as it is. Don't think I could find time for it right now. I'll definetly help with the next one though.

If soomehow I find a lot of spare time, I'll let you know.
