Finally, the first video for which I can say I actually knew what I was
doing, technically speaking. Just about the only thing that I can think of
that I didn't do but should have is to put it through a cleaning filter or two.
finally released the third and final volume of FLCL on DVD in July 2003, and
the copy I'd preordered through
arrived, one of my first thoughts was of what AMV could I make from the footage.
Personally, I love FLCL; it's one of my favorite series. So I really wanted to
make a video with it.
If you've seen FLCL, you know that Haruko is a pretty freaky character. I
tried to include as many of her wackiest moments as possible for this video.
At AnimeNEXT, this video found itself in the same category (Comedy) as videos from such creators as Doki Doki, Absolute Destiny, Tom the Fish, and Kusoyaro. Absolute Destiny won with "I Wish I Was a Lesbian", as I'd expected. What I didn't expect is that someone I didn't know (and who is not listed on the Org last I checked) would take honorable mention ahead of Doki, Tom, and Kusoyaro, AND that I'd get the Judge's Award (which a video could only win if it hadn't gotten first or honorable in its category).
