"why dont you just give him a chance"

idk because im not physically or mentally attracted to him and ‘but he likes you’ or ‘but hes really nice’ isnt going to change the fact that im not interested

Damn, I don’t think women know how much that really hurts

i’ve only moved back in for 5 hours now and i’m already jumping around everywhere at the idea of having the house to myself dfjkhdfkkjdf

ygo fans, no matter what series, can probably always tell you that despite all the tears, heartbreak and pain, it’s completely worth it for the happiest ending imaginable

I can get why people use lots of effects, but the key is to use them where necessary in order to enhance the experience and not to just throw them in cos they're pretty. I mean it's great that you have the tools at your disposal and the ability to add such effects, but the fact that you can still make a damn amazing AMV with just the raw footage alone stands testament to how good you actually are. It's clear you understand how to do that really really well

Aw shucks, you’re making me blush ;w;

I think a real key factor for that is the fact I’ve been doing AMVs for YEARS. Since middle school, so I’d guess around an estimate of 8 years of AMV editing experience. Going from WMM to Sony Vegas and losing two Youtube accounts and a Dailymotion account in the process XD

Using effects can be extremely fun (I was always prone to the rainbow effect myself) but my personal tip for any effect users would be to keep the effects consistent, at least for certain portions of the song. I have a habit of giving some AMVs of mine one gradient coloring through out the whole video, or adding an overlay effect only at the chorus. Otherwise I just add the odd grayscale or contrast effect to tone the individual clips.

I think the greatest inspirational trade for learning to do the kinds of AMVs I’ve ended up doing is watching some of “the great AMVs” that fandoms always acknowledge.

This Ouran AMV has been around for freaking ever and it’s still entertaining (i bet you anything you know which one it is before clicking it). It has its special effects (that are extremely well done and must’ve taken forever to do) but in general it’s very raw editing. Keeps to the beat of the song and lyrics, and has the clips match the uplifting tune. Not to mention impeccable lipsynching. You don’t NEED to lipsynch but when it’s done right and appropriately it’s just WOW.

This Madoka AMV was particularly effective on me PRECISELY FOR its raw editing. Pretty much the only effects used were for transitions between clips and matching the beat of the beat. It focused more on the beat than the lyrics themselves but it really works, and not only that, it captures the series’ tone and best moments. It’s EPIC for all these reasons and made me want to do AMVs like it.

aaaaand I rambled oops.

I really do love your AMVs, especially some of your most recent ones. The ones where you've put them all together with little to no added effects at all. I love how you've basically just worked with what's happening in the scenes and how they might link with the song and also you use the timing really really well like whoa it flows so nicely. i know people like to make those flashy AMVs but damn girl you make great AMVs just with the footage alone like wow. <3

*cries a heck of a lot because AMV FEEDBACK AHHHHH*

Thank you so much~ I’ll admit, I can go effecty and do a lot of added stuff to small projects and shipping stuff, but when it comes to show tributes and full length ones, I try to keep close to it as possible. IDK, it kind of looks more professional that way :’D So that’s why a lot of my more recent AMVs are like that.

Thank you so much for your compliments, they keep me going <333
