  • Comments: This is the video I made during AWA 10 for my 4th AMV Iron Chef Video Editing Challenge. My opponent was William Milberry of Aluminum Studios.

    Theme: Celebration

    Footage: Neo Tokyo
    Heavy Metal
    Fantasia 2000
    Liquid Television
    Robot Carnival

    Secret Ingredient:
    Animalympics (an obscure animated film released in 1979).

    I got the song "Rock the World" by Waldo's People (a Finnish band) from Lupus_Lupus. I got the song "Party Hard" by Andrew WK from AtomX and Ashyukun. I couldn't decide which song to use, so I just used both :P I used "Push It" by Garbage as a segue, but looking back, "Rock the World" had a good enough segue to use. Oh well.

    Heavy Metal and Robot Carnival aren't listed in my video info because I never ended up using any footage from those sources. The opening scene with the opera singer from Magnetic Rose is the one scene I had in my head before the contest. The rest of it was done on the fly...hell, half of the clips I used I saw for the first time while scrubbing through footage during the actual contest.

    Video quality isn't the greatest because the source wasn't DVD-ripped. Due to some last minute problems, Quu had to use a capture card to get the footage onto the editing PCs. Also, the Secret Ingredient source was from a reel that fell off the back of a truck or something :P So, the footage doesn't look that great, and the editing is a little sloppy because I only had 2 hours to work on it and could barely hear my audio above the noise of all the events that were taking place while editing. Not my best work, but the Iron Chef crowd enjoyed it, and I guess that's what counts.
