As anime fans, there’s something truly beautiful about a well-done opening or ending credits sequence. Why is this? It’s because music runs through our veins – because the combination of audio and visual stimulation is a pleasing experience, especially if it’s mixed well, and makes sense.
Of course, not all of us can create an opening or ending credits sequence, so how do we channel the creativity that burns deep within us? We create Anime Music Videos, or AMVs, that combine our favorite music with clips from our favorite shows, creating something that isn’t necessarily associated with the content creators, but exists on its own merit.
Introducing the Anime Matsuri AMv Contest – a competition that will test your ability to create an interesting, unique, and creative music video using a song and clips from your favorite anime or video game.
In the AMv Contest, you’re limited only by your own imagination. Want to put “Free!” alongside “Blurred Lines”? By all means. How about “Uptown Funk” set to clips of “Death Parade”? Have at it. What you create is entirely up to your own imagination. Show us what you’ve got.
All entrants into the AMv contest must already be badge-holders, and must turn in their submissions no later than February 11, 2016 to ensure that their entry will be considered. There will be several categories that entrants will be considered for, including Best in Show, Most Creative, Most Epic, Audience Award, and more.
During the event, we will screen all received entries and offer constructive criticism based on what we see. If you find yourself making AMVs during your free time, or if the idea of making them interests you, we’d love to receive your entry!
