AMV Hiatus…Finally

Well it has been a fun ride, but it’s time for a pit stop. My first AMV was 10 years ago, but it was really 5 years ago that I got started on this hobby and it has been a blast. I’m not going to claim some life long retirement from AMVs like a lot of the editors do, but as I’ve been saying for a while, I’m ready for a break. I’ve released some videos I’m really proud of and revisited some ideas to better them as well. I’ve also tried to give back to the community through tutorials and other efforts. Looking back on my time I know I spent it well, but I really do need a break and now with all but one of my streaks ended it is the perfect time. I will continue to update things like the tutorials and AMVpack, but overall I plan to put editing aside for now and just the other things in life as I mentioned back at the end of 2014.  I may release one video for AWA as a good farewell for now, but aside from that, this may be it for a few years.  Thank you for watching and stay tuned…

Year End (Editing) Update 2014

So apparently I don’t do these very often, but I at least try to get at least one post per year to try and sum up what’s going on with me.  This was a really interesting year for me in the AMV community as started the year unsure of what direction I wanted to go with in my editing.  Now that the year is almost over I am quite surprised at what I have accomplished in both my editing and other efforts for the AMV community.  Deciding to make AMVpack was one of the goals I set mid-year and I never imagined the support I would get from others helping to add additional translations.  I would like to give a special thanks to everyone that helped me out with that project and I’m thrilled with the result.  So what’s in store for next year?  At this point I have to be honest and say that it is time for me to take a break and reflect.  While I do have plans to create something for Otakon, I think it’s time I finally stepped back and focused on other things in my life.  Like all editors, sometimes life just requires you to take a break so you can catch up with it.  I hope everyone has a happy new year and I look forward to what the AMV community produces in the upcoming year.
