It was the best of times... it was the worst of times...
There are so many things I could say about this video. This was going to be the first big video I made with lots of different source footage and I never really realized all that is entailed when making a video like that. I have so much respect for the people on this site that do videos like this.
I started making this video back in 2002 shortly after I signed up on the site. At the time I was working off several guides on how to make videos and was trying to incorporate much of what I was learning into this video. Part of this learning process made me realize there was a lot I didn't know about video editing, adobe premiere, etc. It was very hard to stay motivated and stick with this video as it had its ups and downs.
I wanted to try things like syncing clips to a beat, lip syncing, video effects, transitions, using video footage I had created myself, etc. I tried all of this to some extent. In some ways the video can be considered an experiment in video editing for me.
As I mentioned I started this video back in 2002 and lost the motivation to work on it or video edit for some time as other things in life came up. Finally in 2007 we are a little more settled with where we live and I wanted to come back to a community I really enjoyed. Unfortunately so much time had passed I no longer had my source project files, or my premiere project save so I had to reconstruct the first part of this video from the partial encode I had from 4 years ago. I am happy with how the overall video came out considering this is the case.
Anyway I hope people enjoy this video because it took a lot of hard work and taught me a lot of things. There are things that I wish I had done differently but I will carry these ideas with me into future projects and hopefully improve on everything I do with each video.
Overall I am very happy to have finally completed this video and I appreciate all the guides and information provided by the AMV.org community. I would not have been able to get half as far as I have without it. Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think. Also please check my journal entries for an explanation of why I chose the screen name MindBug and the meaning behind it.
I hope you enjoy the video. ^_^
