I love the anime Ranma and worked hard to keep this AMV true to its original theme. It was like the anime and song were made perfectly together for this concept and I was surprised that my idea hadn't already been done. I wanted to keep things simple and concentrated mostly on the editing and matching the timing of the scenes to the lyrics.
I don't think it's bad for my first anime music video and not bad for my first time really using any sort of movie making program but I do know that this AMV could have turned out a lot better. It took me 1 day to pick out all the scenes I wanted to use and just 1 day to do all the capturing and editing. In retrospect though, it probably would have been better if I had not crammed all of the capturing and editing into just under a 24 hour time period. Sheer exhaustion towards the end of the process caused some of the bad points in the AMV where I didn't realise until it was too late that I should have added in another scene or cut others much better. I must add that Window Movie Maker was a big blame on some of the bad editing in that no matter how hard I tried, the program wouldn't do I really wanted it to do a lot of the time.
I'm hoping to get Adobe Premiere soon so that I can remaster this AMV someday and bring it up to the level that I feel it should belong. In the meantime, enjoy the show for what it is--as someone's first attempt at a new thing with some enthusiasm and fun.
