"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
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.
*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
Finding myself falling in love with Cartoon Netowrk all over again.
