Some of you may be wondering where I disappeared off to after saying that I would come back to blogging. Well, the truth is that I got sidetracked with another project: Nopybot Productions.
Very few people know this, but 11 years ago I tried my hand at making AMVs. At the time I had no special software and my computer hard drive barely had enough space for several anime series. The result was that I could only use whatever anime I was watching at the time and had to split and merge clips with Avisplit and hope it matched the music. You can see the fruits of my labour below. The first clip is the very first AMV I made back in 2004 and the second clip was made a while later.
At the time I thought this was way too much work for what it was worth. It was also before the days of Youtube so the only way I could share my work was through animemusicvideos.org and hoping people would randomly view and rank my videos. I decided back then not to touch AMVs again until it became much easier to make something good.
Fast-forward more than a decade and nowadays I have software that can make professional movies, and more anime and hard drive space than I know what to do with. I have been spending the past few month learning about all the software available and putting together my 3rd AMV. It’s hard to say when my 3rd AMV will be out, but when I’m done I’ll post it here and officially launch Nopybot Productions.
