  • Profile: Just a quick bit about me,
    I'm 21, was born in London and make anime music video's, wallpapers and fansub/encode as a hobby.
    I'm also a bit of a gadget freak, so I love any kind of electronics. Recently upgraded again because working on my Ah My Goddess video was virtually impossible. Such lag, editing was unbearable, and probably a year on, still no sign of completion. Have recently installed a new motherboard, monitor, memory and modem so maybe sometime I will get cracking with the AMV.

    I'm pretty proud of this machine I've built myself, it's kind of a hobby turned obsession. Well with a setup like this, I should be able to edit with more freedom, and experimenting with custom stuff won't be so painful render wise.

    Editing Equipment:

    Studios & Websites:
    I also run my own (small time, but fun) community called Zero1's Anime along with a friend, Saya where people can upload and download their own and other's images etc, chat in a chat room and leave messages in a BBS. It's fun but time consuming to constantly update, I was on a major roll since it's the new year, and also our third year of being online, but I've sort of slipped a bit with this current AMV, and frying a bunch of motherboards.

    I was a part of the Solcon Studios, together with Jonny Bebop we did a lot of work on the site and we got closed down because I uploaded a 490MB file that wasn't linked anywhere on site. They saw it as server abuse since we had unlimited bandwith and space.

    After quite a few months we finally got back online but what with work, fansubbing, and a new site design that was kind of restrictive in the way of updating (I'm really no good at blind HTML editing) I wasn't able to update like I used to and Jonny saw me as slacking off lol. We went our seperate ways with no hard feelings, so it's all good. Just a shame it didn't work out. I'm greatful to have worked with him though, he's a good guy.

    Jonny has since taken up scanlating and is currently doing the Guyver manga (and from the looks of it, doing an awesome job too). Best of luck to him, it would be nice to work together at some point.

    Towards the end of January 2005 I joined Anime-Influx as an encoder. Some time after it was decided that the founder, Kaizuri, wanted to step down and passed control of Anime-Influx to myself. It's a great oppurtunity to be able to work with such a great group of guys, I really appreciate what they do. Since Kaizuri's stepping down i have begun to form two divisions within Anime-Influx, and the mech division will be starting After War Gundam X soon. It's a series I've liked for a while and now I have the limited edition DVDs, I intend to bring a good quality sub of Gundam X so it gets the recognition it deserves.

    Stuff to Get:
    I'm looking forward to getting the Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star and Gundam 0083 Series. But really, these are the sorts of series that make you think "You're an anime fan and you don't have these!?"

    I'm out for now, peace
