I started making music videos in September 2001, with the initial intention of testing out the capture capabilities of the capture card I had just acquired. I set about creating my first AMV with very little experience of other works in this growing area of animation fandom but enjoying the process I endeavored to find out what other anime music videos were like.
I think at this point I watched Believe and wept :)
Anyway, after creating my first two videos there was a considerable gap where I didn't make anything - but I did review and study many videos by some excellent creators. Then, between easter and summer 2002 I created a number of videos which gained unexpected critical acclaim and, subsequently, numerous awards.
