    Shining Collection is probably my favorite AMV to date. While When Worlds Collide was not a success in competition, the feedback I got for it was phenominal, and so I decided to do another AMV in the same style. I had just seen the Ah! Megami-Sama movie and knew I had to do a video to it, the problem was finding a song.

    At the same time, Iserlohn introduced me to a series called Gravitation. It was from this series that I learned of the song Shining Collection, and found it's pace to be perfect for another hardcore action sync video.

    I was worried, that since the song was in another language, that nobody would "get" this video and it would not do well. Nevertheless, I had nothing else I was exceptionally proud of and so this video went to Otakon. To get a firsthand report on the crowd's reaction to the video, I drove the 7 hours to Baltimore to attend the AMV pre-screenings. Despite an error causing my video to play back out of sync, I was shocked and appalled when I actually made it into the finals. In-sync or not, I must have been doing something right...for once.

    Because of the title of the song, I figured this would be as good a song as any to go ape with lens flares. This video sets a new record for me, by having a grand total of 11 lens flares and 12 flashes to white. Mmmm...artificial light...

    To do the intro I enlisted the aid of voice actress extrodinaire Kara Dennison. Yes, both voices were done by one person.
