So, as the above title vaguely hints in the direction of, I have been making AMV's for the past few months instead of doing digital artwork, and it has been incredibly fun and exciting to explore an art form that is new to me. I think I might even have a certain amount of talent for it.

Shameless FFX Video Plug
Shameless Hetalia Video Plug

The problem is with the "Music" part of "Anime Music Video". Namely, the fact that everything I want to make/all my favorite songs, etc. are owned by Warner Music Group.

I have made no fewer than two AMV's that are now blocked worldwide due to their WMG-owned status. The only reason the remaining (linked above) AMV's are still up is that one's owned by UMG, who are content with the reasonable and kindly marketing strategy of simply advertising on my video, and the other seems to be invisible to copyright detection for some bizarre reason... Either way, few things beat the frustrating futility of spending long hours perfectionistically working my tush off on the exact timing of every shot, when WMG sees fit to shut me down regardless of the capitalized "I OWN NOTHING" banners all over my description.

Therefore, I shall sulkily refrain from purchasing their songs for the sake of doing AMV's to them, like I did for my latest blocked video... Not that my 99¢ will make one whit of difference, but I can dream of defiance...
