Showcasing the swordsmanship of several well known (and not well known) anime characters, get ready to see sparks fly!
This is the most experimental anime music video that I have made so far, and it is the culmination of everything that I have learned so far about making videos in general, and AMVs in particular. It is also the first time that I have used multiple anime sources, as well as multiple audio tracks.
I have divided up this video into four segments based on the music tracks used:
Segment 1: Slam (from 0:00 to 1:03)
Segment 2: Tarantula (from 1:04 to 1:47)
Segment 3: Plastic World (from 1:48 to 2:34)
Segment 4: Hold Your Colour (from 2:35 to 4:00)
My intention with this AMV is to use different editing techniques, styles, and pacing for each music track/segment, in an attempt to (somewhat) mimic the feel of a multi-editor project.
With a production time of about 1.5 months (the longest I have ever spent on a single project), I hope that everyone feels the end result was worth it. Comments and opinions are 100% encouraged. So without further ado, I present to you Sword Strike: Steel Collision!
Special thanks to Clamp-X and Stolen Soul for helping me beta test this AMV.
