Before I forget: check back this Saturday for my Avengers: Age of Ultron LitFlix, and Sunday for a special Mother’s Day Guest Post by Patrick Sponaugle!
Many years ago, I dipped my toes into the world of video editing, and made a couple of Anime Music Videos or AMV’s. It took a lot of work, editing in clips from videos to match with the lyrics and music. However, I also found it really rewarding, as I got to re-tell the story of the events portrayed, with the addition of the music.
The main one I made is probably something for the really big Final Fantasy fan. It includes clips from videos from Final Fantasy VI, VII and Advent Children, VIII, IX, X and X-2. A lot of the scenes from really spoiler-heavy moments, as well. So unfortunately, I’ve never really felt able to share it with many people, as I didn’t want to spoil them. So in many ways, I made it for me. But with the addition of our YouTube, I did put it up, and it is out there if you are interested in watching.
The music is also from a really epic sub-genre of techno: British Hardcore. I was obsessed with this music for a few years, and this is probably the best song I found from it, so hopefully you can enjoy it too! It’s All About You by Scott Brown.
Oh, and I’m sorry about the text at the end. Regretted that almost immediately…
One more AMV after the break!
From what I understand of fair use, I feel these are a form that should be covered – both in terms of the images used, and the music used, if you are ascribing new meaning to them. However, one of the videos ended up with a notice that in some countries, it was not allowed to be played because of copyright. However, it didn’t tell me which, so I have no idea if you’ll be able to view this one or not, but I’ll include it! It’s entirely scenes from Final Fantasy VIII, mostly from disc 2 but a few from the opening sequence. The song is Hotaka by Juno Reactor.
