    Yeah, I know I haven’t been around this forum in months now b/c I stopped watching anime...anyways I need some help from you guys.

    I’ve been learning advanced video editing/effects. I want to apply some of the stuff I learned into a project. Doing projects you learn a lot of stuff, you get to experiment and come up with new ways to get things done.

    Anyways, one of the best projects I can think of is AMV's.

    I was wondering if anybody had an idea for a good AMV. It can be solo anime or multi anime with a theme. The music/song should be good and fit the story/mood of the AMV. Nothing too long, 3-4 minutes is good.

    I have a lot of free time since I just finished up with college and my job will start in July. Hopefully you guys can help me out, but if you can’t, it was good to stroll by the old A&M forum again.



    :)

    there are obviously not enough elfen lied AMVs out there, but finding a song to go with it is a bit hard. Same goes for the rurouni kenshin OVA.

    The Used - Blue and Yellow with Tsukihime. the anime is kind of short so it might be hard to find enough material.

    If i was good at making them i would use the song pale by within temptation. I would go for a more serious theme about how people are fighting for what they believe in such as showing maybe a character "beaten down" and trying their best to achieve a goal. Or just some great fighting scenes with some meaning to them. Just listen to the song and you will understand what i mean.

    Another great song is "you are my love" from tsubasa reservoir chronicles. It would make such a great love amv. Any couple anime would do.

    Like animepark13 said something with elfen lied. Maybe Hurt by nine inch nails would work. Some perfect lyrics to fit the series "What i have become my sweetest friend, everyone i know goes away in the end". "crown of shit" (maybe show lucys or anyones horns on their head) If you watched the series you could make some good references.

    i used to working with fast songs or techno track, they make it alot easier to apply effects and transistions...a slow song also relys more on a story you make up, which i dont have the originality for.

    Honestly if you're lookin for advice on AMV's really the best thing to do is go watch a bunch of AMV's from anime's you already love. It usually isnt that hard to determine what type of music should fit in with what time of anime, or i should say what scenes you're using with that anime. Timings a different story of course. Ive made a few to date, these 2 here i made a few months back as my first 2...nothing impressive but i was satisfied with them being my first ones.

    Gundam seed - 10th man down (nightwish)

    gundam seed/destiny - come cover me (nightwish)


    here's a couple of my favorites that i used to learn from when making my own (you'll notice alot of gundam, its my obsession)

    Metal Gear gundam seed

    Kira vs. Shinn

    08th MS team 10th man down (nightwish)

    Kingdom of hearts - every time we touch (DJ dean remix)

    I’ve gone through at least 300 AMV's already; when I was into anime I had a problem.

    Anyways, all the AMV's you listed are good, but they are basic scene to scene, sync with audio, tie together with lose story.

    i wanna do this to apply some effects to the original animation, it's hard to explain, but look at these AMV's...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7DJWpB8AtQ
    this one has a lot of masking I think, if keep going at it I think I can do all the effects in it. It’d take a long time however and be very unoriginal.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ToxrmSaWm8
    this one has good use of fractal noise and painting.

    i don’t want to be any close to the production value of those two AMVs, it took a group 8 month to make that last one i posted. i just want to test my skill, and maybe develope them more.

    so i just needed a simple idea, and simple song...

    i like the hellogoodbye song all of your love, b/c I can remix the audio a lot easier. I picked Suzymia b/c it's short and i have all the footage.



    however, i'm still always open to ideas ...

    I still don't see what's the appeal of AMV's.

    :dunno:

    When I'm watching a Macross one I'd rather hear Dogfighter than Kenny Loggin's Danger Zone. :mamoru: Gimme the original music anyday....

    I just get really bored at work so i play eq, surf offtopic, and watch/make AMV's :p

    edit: though i can see putting some danger zone to the launch of the impulse :bigthumb:

    That doesn't matter. :rolleyes: The song lyrics and the anime are a near-perfect fit. Have you seen Blood+?
