One of my favorite parts about anime conventions are AMVs and Anime Hell. I keep coming up with lots of fun ideas for AMVs but for one reason or another I keep putting off getting into it. When I first moved to Portland I used to VJ at raves and dance parties so I’m not totally unfamiliar with working with video. I guess putting together an AMV still seemed kind of daunting though so I never dove into it.. until now!
Earlier this week I was listening to one of my favorite artists, Little Boots, while skimming through Creamy Mami episodes trying to take some screen caps.. a lot of scenes fit really well with music so I got inspired to make an AMV!
I hope that my AMV will introduce people to both Creamy Mami and Little Boots. I think a good AMV will keep you interested whether or not you are familiar with the show. And a great AMV will do that in addition to making you love the song they chose. I know I’m not at that level yet, but an AMV maker that can do that, and that I really admire is Ileia. Here is the first video I ever saw from her and it made really interested in watching the anime she used.. and I think even made the song more likable even though it’s totally over played 🙂
Next I think I’ll be posting my Sakura-con report and photos and then after some more new photos of my Creamy Mami costume!
