Re: Have AMV ideas?

I was trying to put Kanae footage to "Grace Kelly" by Mika, but there just isn't enough Kanae footage in the world to make a whole video. emot-frown So I slipped Shiori in there too. This is an idea and not a finished product because my Macintosh hates me and won't let me finish it. emot-mad

Then "In The Death Car" by Iggy Pop and Goran Bregovic for what else, but the Akiomobile would be mad hiptastic. I mean, really.

And "Nowhere Man" by the Beatles for Akio/Dios. I was actually quite surprised to find no video for that on YouTube.

Also, another Beatles idea, "For No One" as Saionji/Anthy or Utena/Anthy post-Touga winning or both or anyone, I guess. It's just such an awesome song!

Re: Have AMV ideas?

I always thought "Girlfriend" by Avril would be great, if it was Utena or Anthy singing, making Akio the 'girlfriend.'

But, I lack an editing program good enough or clips without subtitles.

Re: Have AMV ideas?

I want to do a video of Utena to One. Yes, I know it's really about being aware in a comatose state. Either that or Ian Christie's version of Sanitarium (Welcome Home).

I have done one to Led Zepplin's "No Quarter" and did some rather unique stuff with it that I personally haven't seen in an AMV. I want to redo it because I only had the movie at the time and I had the whole thing in my head on how I wanted it to go. I also did NOT show the Utena car OR the dance.

Re: Have AMV ideas?

SLoT and i have a GREAT idea...
I at the moment have Portal on the brain..and on this thread SLoT just said.... Utena AMV...to "Still Alive" the end credits song to Portal (if you dont know that already.) Obviously this wuld be seen from Anthy's perspective (as the one singing is GLaDOS, not because anthy is kinda...android-ish.. but because you could almost see Utena's time at Ohtori as "the experiment")
Lols are in order here...

Re: Have AMV ideas?

I have one! A shame I could not make an AMV to save my life...plus I doubt many people would be familiar with it, but Katatonia's "Dissolving Bonds" is simply perfect for Nemuro/Mikage:

Dissolving Bonds
And here you are
So much time did you waste from times before
So shut down your sky
Bow down, lights out & die
And now you go
The cold chill cracks, a positive self-detach
Inanimate heart
Hurrying, racing forward
A destined goodbye
Bells rang out the day of your worst fear
Obscure graduation day
Left you but with memories to bear
Lost in hopelessness
Seclusion cut you just as deep as knives
Dissolving the bonds
Time was set to fade away your lives
You said you would always give you love
You said you would always be caring
You said you would never abandon
You said you would



from "positive self-detach/Inanimate heart", to "obscure graduation day", not to mention "left you but with memories to bear"...it all fits perfectly.

Re: Have AMV ideas?

How about creating a Utena fandub by using sound bites from other animes, ideally using the same English voice actors who do the English Utena dub.

For example: The voice for Shiori was Lisa Ortiz so if it is possible superinpose soundbites from when Lisa was playing Lina Inverse or any of the other roles she has played.

Re: Have AMV ideas?

I'd love to see some KOTOKO or Yuki Kajiura AMVs with Utena. There's a serious lack of those. Really, go search YouTube and you'll come up with only one video for each (excluding my Kannazuki parody).

I've always wanted to do the following videos, or see them done by somebody with greater talent than myself at making AMVs:

"The Boys of Summer" by Don Henley (UtenaXTouga, Touga's POV, later series)
"It's My Life" by Bon Jovi (shuttup, Utena's POV, it makes sense)

Re: Have AMV ideas?

I think I've finally found some raw footage that I can use (I swear, not a single DVD ripping software thingie I downloaded could do anything useful), and my first instinct is to make a Saionji video to Animal I Have Become by Three Days Grace.

Re: Have AMV ideas?

I really really want to make an AMV to Fiona Apple's To Your Love, featuring the relationships of Utena, Anthy and Akio, shifting constantly between different perspectives, and just generally being a bit crazed. It works well in my head!

Re: Have AMV ideas?

It just occured to me that Heart's song Devil Delight would make for an interesting Akio-centric AMV. etc-love

Here are the lyrics:

Come on down from the top of the mountain, flowing
Doiní the slow slide into town, keep on going
Darkness dancers get down, heavily hoping
Stroking the stone soul, loving, drinking and doping

Like a blind moth looking for color in the lights
Dance in the spotlight, I feel alright
Just my devil, my devil delight

Iíve seen those midnight ladies just for the momentís using
She keep on playing, never know whether sheís losing it
He got those sexy green eyes, clicking the trigger, no warning
Itís all gonna come rolling back in the morning

You might feel me burning all night
Like a dirty demon daughter, donít put up no fight
I dance in the spotlight, Iím alright
Itís just my devil, my devil delight

Lover and fool, glass and jewel, the potion
Comedy, tragedy, making the game, emotion
On your toes, do the gambling roll for your fortune
We fall for love from up above to the ocean

I've been listening to No Doubt's "Don't Speak" for the past two days, the song seriously reminds me of Juri and Shiori. And, maybe a little bit Ruka.

Re: Have AMV ideas?

Oh my God, guys.  I haven't seen Wicked, but I have the best AMV idea from one of its songs.  I was driving home and the song "Popular" came on over the radio (yes, I listen to the Broadway musical station on my way home from work).  The lyrics begin:

Wicked wrote:

GALINDA
Elphie - now that we're friends, I've decided to make you my new project.

ELPHABA
You really don't have to do that.

GALINDA
I know. That's what makes me so nice!

Instantly, my mind went to Utena's attitude towards Anthy.  It gets better.

Wicked wrote:

Whenever I see someone less fortunate than I
And let's face it - who isn't less fortunate than I?
My tender heart tends to start to bleed

And when someone needs a makeover
I simply have to take over
I know, I know exactly what they need
And even in your case
Though it's the toughest case I've yet to face
Don't worry, I'm determined to succeed
Follow my lead, and yes, indeed
You will be

Popular! You're gonna be popular!

And so on.

Re: Have AMV ideas?

If I ever get my hands on a good movie-making program and the remastered series, I'm making an AMV with Poets of the Fall's "Carnival of Rust", focus being on Akio and his seduction/relationship/hold on Utena and Anthy.  The first part would be Utena, the second Anthy.  I mean, hell, the song sounds like the distorted version of a self-pitying love song Akio would sing to justify himself with Utena and Anthy to me.

Plus it's all dark and sexy and etc-wankgirl and totally Akio.

lyrics:

D' you breathe the name of your saviour in your hour of need,
And taste the blame if the flavor should remind you of greed?
Of implication, insinuation and ill will, 'til you cannot lie still,
In all this turmoil, before red cape and foil come closing in for a kill

Come feed the rain
'cause I'm thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
'cause without your love my life ain't nothing but this carnival of rust

It's all a game, avoiding failure, when true colors will bleed
All in the name of misbehavior and the things we don't need
I lust for after no disaster can touch, touch us anymore
And more than ever, I hope to never fall, where enough is not the same it was before

Come feed the rain...
'cause I'm thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
'cause without your love my life ain't nothing but this carnival of rust
Yeah, feed the rain
'cause I'm thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
'cause without your love my life ain't nothing but this carnival of rust

Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the world is burning
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the world is burning
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning
