WINNER! BEST COMEDY AMV FOR CNANIME AMV COMPETITION 2006!
I created this video some time ago, but because I am still inexperienced with compression I was not satisfied with the quality of my video when compressed to 100mb. I am now though. It is still not perfect, but good enough. This is one of my favourite videos that I have created. It uses footage from various anime series, though mostly Last Exile, and a couple of small things that are not anime to create a video that is as fun, care free and silly as the song, Bicycle Race by Queen, itself. This video was tricky to put together since it uses so many source materials. Luckily I managed to assemble it without a severe loss to quality for any source. The glorious programs that had some part in this glorious video were,
Images, Texts, Etc.
Adobe Photoshop 7.0
Adobe Photoshop CS2 (I upgraded mid project)
Video Sources, Final Product
Virtual Dub MOD
Vegas 4.0 (What can I say? I'm a sucker for the unprofessional stuff.)
This video was premiered at Anime North 2006, and was much to my surprise and overwhelming joy, a finalist in the novice competition. I did not win any awards, but being a finalist for a beginner like me was more than enough of a prize, and praise from one of the winners as well. If you were at that convention please leave me some comments. Canada all the way!
Since Anime North 06 I have made slight changes to this video, making it slightly more animetastic (originally there were shots with zero anime involved but I replaced those).
Anyway, if you read all of this my kudos to you. Please, sit back and enjoy my video, and if it should so please you, leave me an opinion or quick comment. I'm always looking for feed back!
