  • Profile: Up-and-coming AMV editor with a huge taste in the R&B genre. I got interested in video editing at a young age in 2006 when YouTube wasn't mainstream yet. There were two types of edits that were prevalent in piquing my interest: sports edits and Anime Music Videos (AMVs). From 2012-onward, it has become a recurring hobby of mine.

    #AMVsWithSoul is a recent series of AMV projects that I started in 2017. The match I have between Anime and R&B dates as far back as my freshman year in high school of 2008 when I would look up fan art of Anime couples and listen to prime Ne-Yo or prime Usher love songs in the background. I am aware R&B AMVs existed before I started this project. But I noticed they're not as relevant since the more prevalent AMVs tailor more so to genres like hard rock, alternative rock, EDM, etc. However, there are a minority such as myself that are here to preserve the lost art of R&B AMVs. For me though, I'd like to challenge myself and use songs that are not mainstream hits by artists who are irrelevant or past-their-prime in today's music trend and pair them with Anime that I'm sure many of you recognize. The next steps will be completely contingent on the direction I want to go.

    #AMVsWithSoul videos were able to get glimpses of notoriety in Anime conventions, SacAnime in particular. During SacAnime Summer session 2017, #AMVsWithSoul II: Subaru X Emilia - "Let Me Be Your Today" was a finalist and #AMVsWithSoul III: Kirito X Asuna - "Be With You" was runner-up in both the Romance category. The following year, #AMVsWithSoulVI: Your Name - "Queen" won first place in the same category. It's a start, but there's a lot of untapped potential to unlock. That's where I'll need to put in some work.

    Aside from #AMVsWithSoul, I also spearhead TrueRaiderLaker Productions, which is a series of sports edits dedicated to my two favorite sports teams: the Oakland Raiders and the Los Angeles Lakers. Hype videos come year round. However effective this year after I post part 2 of the Lakers Hype Video later in October, TrueRaiderLaker Productions will step aside from the video editing sect to make room for #AMVsWithSoul. #AMVsWithSoul will become the new face under my longtime MechG2994 YouTube alias.
