    • I Will Not Be Making RWBY AMVs For a Long Time...Possibly At All

      1 year ago

      Full story here: http://kahiyao.tumblr.com/post/139589030802/this-i...


      Main message:

      There are literally THOUSANDS of videos that upload the same monotonous, sloppy, ill-conceived, pitiful videos showing little to no effort and what they put out is utter garbage. Im not talking for myself now, Im talking for the hundreds of AMV editors out there who put up amazing work and are not receiving their due commendation and respect.

      When people put heartfelt time and conscious effort into a video and receive little to no commendation at all…THAT…just…SUCKS. HOWEVER, when other videos are put up that show literally piss poor skill AND ARE LAUDED AND APPLAUDED…THAT…IS…THE BULLSHIT I CAN NOT TAKE.

      The audience is half to blame. They simply provide fluffy positive feedback at free will when the editor CLEARLY NEEDED CONSTRICTIVE CRITICISM. I did not get to where I am by falling into the allure of praise, I criticized my own work over and over and over until I got it RIGHT. I will sometimes REFUTE praise if I consciously knew I could do better. I KNOW BETTER.

      Putting in conscious effort to collect, compose, and create something RIGHT shows respect not only for the audience but it shows respect to the makers of the very inspiration you use.

      I will not post crap, if I know it’s crap. Tell me its crap, I take it down, make a better one. I won’t make a game knowing its crap. I won’t make a show knowing it’s crap. I will not make good AMVs if it will be thrown into the same pool of crap only to sink deeper than IT. I will move on to different aspiration.

    • Monty Thoughts - "A very odd year since"

      Two years ago at RTX 2014, my first RTX ever, I said hello to Monty and introduced myself at his Q&A panel first in line to ask a question. "I remember you" he said. For a man of his stature to say that was an award in itself. "Make more" he said. For a man who makes more than any other man could dream of, those words were more encouraging than anything. I never imagined those would be the only words I would get to hear from him to me.


      One year. Once year since his passing. What an odd year. It was as if that voice in my head was no longer present at times. I felt disconnected. Was I doing anything meaningful anymore? Were my videos noteworthy anymore? I felt a sense of dissatisfaction in each video I made. I needed the stamp of approval. Monty, did you like it? What did you think? I could only wonder.


      Keep moving forward. Could I do that? How? What do I need? Thats just it. Keep moving forward. Don't think. Don't hesitate. Keep moving forward. Im honestly not sure when that became Monty's most famous quote, but it has so much power behind it. I recently saw a brief moment during an interview he did in which he said


      "I do believe thoroughly in giving everything you got towards whatever you’re doing at the time...the only thing that stops us from doing the really cool things is time". -Monty Oum


      To have such an intense drive, passion, and ability is truly superhuman. I can only dream of matching that resolve. Luckily, though, I have a dream. Whether it lives or dies is all up to me.


      In time, Monty, I hope to make it to where you were...and to where you are.

      I issue you a challenge, good sir. I challenge you to make a RWBY AMV/teaser paralleling and using the audio of the Meet the Pyro Team Fortress 2 teaser trailer. Do you accept the challenge?

      • Dust117

        Fair enough. I still can't wait to see your new RWBY AMVs!

        Funny. But there's not much that matches RWBY. Too many different sound effects makes it hard to sync any good scene together. But interesting challenge. I must decline for now. I'm still trying to layout my next video after my current Project: Ringleader. Follow me in twitter @Kahiyao if you wanna see what I'm up to.

      What program did you use to make those videos? I would like to know because I am planning on making RWBY videos if I can get a good program.
