I know this isn't really a cosplaying topic, buuuuut... who's entering the AMV contest at Anime Detour? I'm entering a Final Fantasy VII Advent Children AMV under 'drama' set to Nickelback - Saving' Me. Anyone else entering?? ^_^

I was thinking about entering one, but I don't have it finished. Oh well, maybe next year. :)

Has anyone entered the WTF AMV contest?

So I lurve AMV's and my man toy and I recently purchased an imac for our living room and it has imovie on it so I'm thinking it might theoretically be possible for me to put together an AMV.

Does anyone know of any good tutorial pages or how to pages for AMV's? I'm sure anything I make will be most suitable for the WTF area as it would be the hack work of a noob but it'd still be fun to try.

Any suggestions most appreciated :toothy:

I'm debating between two of mine:

We're in this together now by Nine Inch Nails with FF12, X, X-2, VII: Advent Children and Kingdom Hearts 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Icxn8Q08u2A

or Six Days by Mos Def with Cowboy Bebop http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGC9HHRLv-I

I'm leaning towards the first one, but the problem is I'd have to delete a little over a minute off of it XD. That could be problematic.

anime_wench-- I really liked yours, it was interesting that you left the audio in.

aka_spooky-- a good site is animemusicvideos.org They have loads of FAQs and other stuff, and a helpful forum as well.

You could finish it! Just don't sleep between now and the convention.. haha!

And I so want to enter the WTF contest, but I'm not sure EXACTLY what they're looking for.. like.. humorous voice overs? Just plain silliness? I could throw something together if I had any vague idea what would be good.. lol

I would say, totally go with the first one.. that was totally awesome! Even though it was lengthy, it kept your attention. I really liked the transitions between scenes, is that a transition on your editing program? How did you get that static effect? I loved that. And my advice on the editing down the time (not that you need it) the AMV didn't seem to really pick up till around the 30sec. mark.. so if you could somehow trim the begining? I dunno, I think all of it was good, really.

And I got so many comments on my FFVII AMV about how the audio was annoying, that I think I am going to edit it out. *I* liked it, but I might just leave the audio out to appease the crowds. *grumble grumble* hehe! ^_^

Thanks. ^^ Yeah, I was thinking of getting rid of some at the beginning too. The static was actually not a transition, I wish it was. Naw, I'm stuck with old Windows Movie Maker. It was actually a part of Kingdom Hearts 2, as Sora gets his memories back while you're playing as Roxas. I just edited it to go with the music. I thought it fit really well with the sound at that part.

Maybe instead of editing all the audio out, you could just leave out most or some of it, but keep maybe parts where characters say something that you think contribute to the feeling of the amv? I had one that I left some audio in, one I made about Knives from Trigun, and I kept quite a bit of the audio in, and put lines from the show over some of the video. I guess a difference there was that the song I had used had no singing, only humming XD. Another thing to think about would be the background music-if it interferes with the song you probably want to get rid of it. Just my opinion though. Ultimately it's up to you and how you want it to be.

Pretty much randomness I think...this is what it says on the website: "This contest is a search for the most painfully bad AMV in existence. It can be cliché. It can be cracktastic. It can be sappy. It can be in super fansub quality. It can be just plain wrong. But in the end, only one lucky vidder will be presented the WTF award."

Do you know if you can enter both contests? Because if you can, I think I would enter this one to the WTF contest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uLxkPa3Yyk

I hope you can, that would be fun to do both, especially since it's my first time ever entering any, much less two XD. It says that it should be a crappy amv, and I like to think mine's not too crappy, but some of the stuff I put in there is probably WTF worthy.

Alright, I emailed the AMV coordinator for Detour, and apparently you can enter both contests, and even enter more than one for the WTF contest. I think I'll enter the one I posted above and this one: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ALdkfBXa_Lo Only FMA, but pretty messed up. There's EnvyXArmstrong XD
Aww, or this one:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=BjNRLy0xSTs
Tifa and Rinoa to Me Against the Music by Britney Spears and Madonna.

...I just can't choose. T_T

And just for kicks if you're as bored as I am right now, here's the cosplay one I made: http://youtube.com/watch?v=VpWhO88cTg8

Yeah, okay, I promise I'll stop posting my amvs now.

The AMV contest is one entry per person.

The WTF contest is 1 to a couple per person.

Yes, a person could enter both contests with different videos. I believe, all videos must be created by the artist submitting.

Stranger things have happened...

With the case of the WTF, you could get people sending in other works they think are awful... so reason for the disclaimer.

There are some poor videos out there that deserve to be credited as such... thus the WTF contest was born by AD's programming head. Been a great hit ever since... *snickers*

I want to make one so bad.. but it's so odd.. I try so hard to make good videos and they end up looking like crap. Now I try to make a crappy video and it actually looks pretty. WTF?!?! <--- (No pun intended) ^_^

Where did you get the Kingdom Hearts 2 video from..? I started playing KH2 over again, and now I want to make another AMV, since my first two KH amvs were mainly KH1... hehe! I've been looking around but can't seem to find the cut scenes anywhere???
