AMV: Rouge’s Prayer

Anime - Princess Rouge Song - Bon Jovi - Livin' On a Prayer Completed July 2001 Premiered October 26, 2001 Remastered August 2008 AnimeMusicVideos.org link Princess Rouge (AKA Legend of the Last Labyrinth) was the first DVD I ever owned, and even though it's incomplete, I really liked the story and characters. It's a shame it never got continued. I'm not sure, but I think this is the first Princess Rouge AMV ever created. This video, finished in late July 2001, is one of the fastest of my videos so far, with most of the video coming together in only one day, and the fine-tuning, effects and intro piece taking another day and a half. Still, for all its speed, I think it's my best video from that summer and was my entry at NekoCon FLASH. Convention History: Nekocon FLASH - Finalist

AMV: The Warrior

Anime - Gunsmith Cats Song - Scandal - The Warrior Completed July 2001 Premiered October 26, 2001 Remastered August 2008 AnimeMusicVideos.org link I owe the inspiration for this video to my younger brother, who suggested it after I showed him the OVA set in early July 2001. I was still stuck on my Bubblegum Crisis video at that point, so this idea kicked around in my head for a few weeks before I started going through the video looking for scenes to use in mid-July after I finished the BGC video. This video came together quickly, helped by the fact that I had far more ideas for this one, and kept a better record of them. This video was my second entry at Nekocon FLASH, but was cut because of time constraints. Convention History: NekoCon FLASH - Entrant, non-Finalist

AMV: Big In Japan

Anime - Bubblegum Crisis 2032 Song - Alphaville - Big in Japan Date Completed June-July 2001 Premiered November 11, 2001 AnimeMusicVideos.org link My first full-length video, I started this one in late June 2001, but ran out of ideas before doing the instrumental sections, so it sat around until mid-July before it got finished in a burst of inspiration. Alphaville's been a band I've liked for a long time, since I was in seventh grade and heard their Forever Young at one of my summer camp's dances. I later found out that Forever Young was one of a group of songs called The CTY Cannon, played during every dance at all of the sites the summer camp was at. After my last year at the camp, I picked up Alphaville's self-titled CD in a fit of nostalgia, and got hooked on Big in Japan. After watching BGC2032, I got the idea of focusing on the "fame" of Priss, Vision, and the Knight Sabers for this video. Convention History: Not Entered to Conventions

AMV: Raiyuki

Anime - Magic Knight Rayearth Song - Tokuyama Hidenori - FOR REAL Completed March 2001 Premiered March 4, 2001 AnimeMusicVideos.org link Image My first video, done just after Katsucon 7, where I parodied the opening to Gensoumaden Saiyuki using Magic Knight Rayearth. I thought that the irony of such a bishonen series's opening using an almost-magical girl series would be funny. It works well for a first video, I think, but has a lot of little problems like frame holds that didn't work. Convention History: Not Entered to Conventions
