Project OrgEditor Round 3: Chow Down!

Anime - Various Song - Parry Gripp - Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Completed June 2011 Premiered June 26, 2011 Animemusicvideos.org link This was my video for the third round of the 2011 edition of Project OrgEditor. The round's theme was "7-7-7" and we had to illustrate one of the Seven Deadly Sins or Seven Heavenly Virtues. The sins are a lot more fun and a lot more concrete than the virtues, so I decided to go with Gluttony. I remember hearing Parry Gripp's Nom song in one of the AMV Hells, and thought it'd be an easy, silly, fun video. I ended up raiding my entire collection of disks for potential clips, and even hitting up several friends for other shots. Overall, this was a lot of fun to make, and came in third in a round of 13 videos.

Project OrgEditor Round 2: Operation Revolver

Anime - Various Song - Various Completed June 2011 Premiered June 16, 2011 Animemusicvideos.org link This was my video for the second round of Project OrgEditor's 2011 edition. The theme for the round was "After Story" and we were to show a conclusion, and then a continuation of a story. I decided to make something like the opening of a sequel to a game, which led to the game's "title" of "Operation Revolver: The Second Chamber." I completely ignored the storylines from the original series, and assigned each of the characters new roles for their earlier exploits, ten years ago in-story, and then moving on in a "Where Are They Now" type of montage. With the two younger girls, not having any scenes of them looking older, I decided to ramp up the "drama" factor by killing them off, one gloriously in battle, one after a depressive spiral. In retrospect, it was a bad decision to rely so much on text to tell the story, but by the time I realized that, it was too late to change the concept before the deadline. It ended up finishing 11th out of 15 videos, though one judge knocked it heavily because they hadn't seen the original series and thought understanding the original plots was necessary for understanding the video.

Project OrgEditor Round 1: Org Ad

Anime - Various Song - Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha OST - Drive Ignition Completed June 2011 Premiered June 7, 2011 Animemusicvideos.org link This was my video for the first round of the 2011 edition of Project Editor. The theme for the round was "Home Sweet Home" and we were to create an ad for the site we considered "home." As the Org is most certainly my AMV home, I decided to go with a fairly standard 30-second advertisement focusing on things the Org had to offer. I deliberately chose previous Project Editor-related pages on the Org as illustrations, including the coordinator - Code's user page, the page for Ileia's Finals-winning video RAH HEY!, and the stream of one of my favorite videos from the previous competition, Kitsuner's Deadlines. It was kind of dry and boring, and finished 11th in a round of 24 videos.
