Well heck, it’s over again for another year. Hi hi everyone xD For those who weren’t aware, this weekend just gone I was once again a participant in what I personally like to call SUFFER editing but as it is better known; Souls Team IC! I was asked to once again participate with Em and Mishi this year and despite the suffering I knew it would cause, I gladly accepted bc I love them both UWU And after 3 days of absolute chaos, this was my entry!
So last year I entered the Romance/Drama category (with my Cry Baby amv if anyone remembers that LOL), but this year we decided to mix up categories within our team and I chose to do dance! Tbh this was always one of my favourite categories to watch entries from bc they were always so seamless oh my goddd, and I never really thought of entering it myself bc I’m really not that good at this genre xD But! I really wanted to try something new this year, so I said I wanted to do dance (or maybe action if there were any songs I liked but I didn’t know any of them in the end LOL). So yknow downloading the song pack, I was hoping for a Krewella song or something similar and yeah there was one amongst Redrum’s picks but then I get to Sunlight’s choices and I almost fall off my bed BC THERE SITTING IN THAT FOLDER ARE IDOL BY BTS AND DUMBDUMBER BY IKON. And ofc I’m so focused on laughing my ass off to really pay attention to anything else in that folder XD But once I calmed down and actually looked I noticed that POP/STARS was also in there. And at that moment Sunlight became my favourite person xD
You see- I already had inspo for this song. Like no joke, it was one of the songs I had plans to one day edit with. So the moment I saw it, I threw out the plan I had started on using DUMBDUMBER and immediately put POP/STARS into vegas xD Although I would’ve loved to work with DUMBDUMBER, the inspo for POP/STARS was just waaaaay too strong xD And so this amv idea was born. The verses are split up and focus on the 7 main groups. Then the chorus combines them with some other groups. And by some huge miracle I wound up with a little time to play with colouring, so while it’s not as perfect as I would’ve liked it to be, given the time restrictions I think it turned out ok xD The idea was kind of to make it all look like the same big show, where the main groups got a longer segment than the rest of the groups. Not a competition so to speak, but yknow those big festivals where they have lots of different artists play at? That was the idea. Also yes I kind of put that “now presenting hokago tea time new music video” bit bc unlike the rest of the groups, the clips for that bit were from the endings so it looked more like studio filiming rather than a concert? And I wanted there to be a reason for that so it didn’t stand out LOL so that’s the reasoning behind that.
But ahhh, I wound up not having internet on Sunday again, so as a result, I wasn’t able to ask for any betaing (is that a word LOL) and hence just went with my own judgement x’D If I’d had more time for this, I would’ve changed a lot of things and included more effects and typo but as it was, this was what I managed to get done. So I really hope everyone likes it and I suppose we’ll see how I did when results come out x’D Wish me and my team luck ;D
Dedi ofc to my amazing teammates Mishi and Em uwu Thank you so much for asking me again this year Em, it was lots of fun~~ WATCH THEIR AMVS WHEN THEY UPLOAD THEM THEY’RE BOTH GONNA BE WAY COOLER THAN MINE AHHHH !! Also dedi to Lucy and Kuri for being supportive angels and assuring me I would do good despite the doubts I had in myself ;w; You’re both the best and ily!! And finally to all the amvs that served as my inspo, bc I took the dance theme very literally for my edit unlike what people usually do for it, so the amvs that inspired me were few in number tbh x’D SO THANK YOU TO ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE UWU
And also perhaps to the tub of strawberries and cream ice cream I finished while trying to motivate myself to finish this. the true hero tbh.
