video: Mystery of the Necronomicon
music: Hypocrisy - "Carved Up"
link: depositfiles [38.9 MB]
editor: Dazzle MovieStar
production date: January 2002

By this time, it had been three months and eight videos since I'd done something FUCKING METAL. This was and remains too long for active operations. It's also a testament to what working conditions were like back then; I could get back to school, cap two hours of video, cut it down to strict brutality, avoiding the porn parts, then pound out a draft and a finished version and be done in about 12 hours worked, before classes started again. Nowadays, I seldom have 12 hours over two days to devote to AMVage, let alone the initiative to do so, but part of that is also that standards change. Cutting takes longer in VDub than it did in MovieStar, and the ability to fine-tune cut length and apply effects forces that work to actually be done, to make sure that the video's coming out optimal. Back in MovieStar, if I missed a hit, I missed a fucking hit, or just edited the sequence differently; not too fucking much that could be done about it.
