JOURNAL: MeriC (Meri Cantoni)

  • Two new AMVs from AWA 2004-09-28 10:45:55 Booyah!
    Title: Sex, Lies, & Roses
    Artist: Midtown
    Song: "Is it Me? Is it True?"
    Footage: Shoujo Kakumei Utena
    Participation: AWA 10 Pro; WINNER "Best Angst", NOMINATED "Best Drama", NOMINATED "Best Character Profile"

    A very dark and... well... angsty!... video focusing on Akio and his use & abuse of Utena.
    Title: Enter the Dragon
    Artist: B3-PROJECT
    Song: "THEME FROM 'Enter the Dragon' ~Revival 2001 Mix~"
    Footage: DragonBall
    Participation: DDR Project 4: 5th Mix; Track 11

    Fun action DB (not DBZ, mind you) video! Our first real "After Effects video," loaded with tons of DDR in-jokes. Also, watch Hsien dance in one of many in a series of videos.


    The con itself was a blast. Got to meet lots of new people (Castor, Maverick, ShnKnives, Corran, AtomX, + more!), and hang out with the usual suspects. So many AMVs in such a small amount of time leaves me feeling very inspired. In addition to wanting to practice for Iron Chef next year (myself and VegettoEX will be facing off against the undefeated Kusoyaro in next year's AWA Iron Chef), I also just feel like working on videos. We'll see what I can pump out in the next year!

  • Whoa mama 2003-08-25 12:06:44 Shoujocon has now passed, and apparently "Deceptive Passions" won third place ( in the AMV contest. That was kind of a surprise, since the Saturday showing of the contest at the con had very little audience reaction. I recall the people near me (VegettoEX, Anneke, Fungie, Scott Melzer) being the ones having to start the applause. ;_; But, hey, that's cool. Second year in a row I got third place at Shoujocon. I wonder who got 2nd and 1st? 
  • New AMVs for the pickin' 2003-08-11 10:24:36 Otakon's already come and gone, and that means two new music videos up and ready for download:

    "Deceptive Passions" (Fushigi Yuugi)
    Song: "Pretty Girl" by Sugarcult
    Won 2nd place in Romance / Sentimental category at Otakon

    "Obligatory EVA Trailer" (Evangelion)
    Audio: Sealab 2021, season 2 (Tinfins trailer)
    Won best Short Film / Trailer at PortConMaine 2003

    Enjoy! I'll write more about the con itself later, probably in my LJ. I can usually never muster up enough effort to write long reports, though...
