"First you'll need some footage. You can download it from the 'net with Kazaa. There's lots of DBZ footage on Kazaa. Or, you can use all the amvs you already have!"
Oh, Strong Bad/Kevin Caldwell/Ian Roberts. Thou speaketh the truth.
The last- and first- AMV I made was Invader Zim set to Germs, and I never really even finished that one. My only editing program is Windows Movie Maker, and I'm unable to rip footage from DVDs... so I pretty much gave up on making AMVs. I just watched them. And it would've stayed that way, except...
Except I couldn't sleep, and I had my laptop right there. And I noticed Windows Movie Maker and I started playing around with it. So I decided to challenge myself by making a very short lip-syncing AMV right there on the spot, despite the fact that I had no footage, no ideas, and no real experience with editing, much less lip-syncing. So I searched My Music and found the shortest "song" I had; a clip I'd downloaded off www.homestarrunner.com of Homestar saying "Here comes the Thnickaman!". It was a grand total of three seconds. I browsed through my AMVs looking for one with a character that would look the best saying Homestar's lines.
And what did I find? I found the All Star AMV done to Irresponsible Captain Tylor by Scott Meltzer. Easy choice, since I didn't have much else to choose from.
All in all, I think this video looks rather good considering that before I started it I had never tried to lip-sync and had had no idea how to use WMM. It's hard to mess up a three-second AMV, but since it took me three hours, I can still be proud of it. For a first attempt, I'm pleased with the results.
Since I can rip DVD footage now, fairly soon I intend to remake this short video and put it up for download. It's only three seconds long, but I can't help but love it.
Additional Note: As far as I know, this is the shortest video on the Org. Huzzah!
