- Iron Maiden Aces High
Well this is my first new AMV in a while, was working on another one, when enthusiasm for that project stalled out I had the idea to do this one, and being a fan of aviation, enthusiasm was not a problem.
It's an AMV I finally got around to doing, using clips of anime/shows involving flying, to the tune of Iron Maiden's "Aces High", not very original I know but I still think it's pretty good, and it's one of the first I've done using multiple animes/shows.
It took a bit of work of course, considering there aren't many anime's/shows involving flying, even fewer that had vid I could use. I was thinking of adding more cartoons that involved flying, but I couldn't really find any other than swatkats, I had thought to use Talespin, but that didn't seem to work properly since I needed clips of real dogfights and stuff relating to the song. And Talespin seemed a bit too lighthearted and G-rated for what I wanted to show.
So as it ended up, Swatkats was the only non-anime show I used. Since the song is about the Battle of Britain, I tried to include anime's involving WW2 (or at least WW2 aircraft) as well, so the first episode of The Cockpit and the A6M Zero in Familiar of Zero worked.....and no that's not why it's called that.
