After watching very many of them myself, I've been inspired to make AMV's again. 

For those that don't know, AMV's (Animated Music Videos) take A LOT of time. You have to decide which clips of whatever media you're using goes well enough with the lyrics of the song. You have to decide which effects go well with your clips, if any at all. YOU CAN'T LET ONE SINGLE CLIP RUN FOR TOO LONG. Seriously, this is one of my biggest pet peeves ever. Oh, and if you're like me and use Sony Vegas, you have quite a few timelines to work with, as well.
Sounds like a lot of work, right? Oh yeah, it is. And laziness for doing all of this work was part of the reason why I had stopped. A lack of motivation. 
Another reason for stopping was that I couldn't really show my work to the public anymore. That or people don't appreciate it. At first, I couldn't show my work because I had received more than enough copyright strikes on YouTube and my original account, oathkeepper94, was gone forever. All of my AMV's, my old slideshows that I was still proud of, my first videos of me and my friends being stupid, just POOF, gone. I was warned by my mom not to upload anything to YouTube anymore otherwise I would get into legal trouble. 
Then there's people not appreciating my work at all. First, during my senior year of high school, I had tried to enter the talent show with an AMV that I had made earlier that year, but it was rejected because of the visuals of weapons in the clips that I had ended up using (Kingdom Hearts, Mirror's Edge, Heavenly Sword, The World Ends With You etc.). Then last year, my first year of college, a Halloween party had happened with a mini-talent show. I was able to show this AMV in this talent show since I was rejected the year before. 
As soon as the video had started...
"WHAT THE F*** IS THIS?!"
Yeah, I'm sure you can imagine how I was feeling at that time. 
Because of these reasons, I had stopped making AMV's. But now that I've discovered that I can upload AMV's onto Vimeo without getting into any sort trouble, I have the ability to show my work to the public once again. The past couple days I had been working really hard on some videos that I had started but had never finished. As I'm typing this, I'm now even working on a video that has been a WIP for almost two years now, Wonderland. I still have about a minute left to go, but I'm more than ready to see it finally finished. 
I'm still not the greatest AMV creator ever, but I can tell you now that I had improved a lot since my Windows Movie Maker days. Having the ability to do a lot more can really expand on your creativity.

I think it's time that I updated this 'about me' section. It's been way too long since I have.

First off, you may simply call me either Stevie, Oath, or Sonic.

I am a sophomore in college. Although I'm currently working on my general subjects at a community college, I would like to transfer to a four year university and be able to continue my love for music as a career. I have been involved in music ever since I blew my first note into my clarinet in 2005. I have been in band for nine years while I have only been in choir for eight. I take pride as an alto, though there are times where I wish I was a soprano so I could perform certain songs without any trouble of hitting any of the higher notes.

I am an amateur voice actress. I have been voice acting since June of 2009 and it is my dream to move down to Dallas, Texas to start voicing for FUNimation and become a professional. Currently I voice in Super Smash Bros. Brawl machinimas. You may refer to this journal to see what all I have voiced in throughout the years.

I've become more of a bookworm throughout the years. My favorite genres are fantasy and sci-fi, although sometimes I like to take a break from them and read a book or two in the regular teen fiction genre. My favorite trilogy is the Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater.

There isn't really much else to say about me. I'm a musician, a voice actress, and a geek, basically. I hope you enjoy what all I have to offer here on DA~

Thanks. And I found another video as well. In case if you forget the links to the 3 YouTube videos. I put the 3 videos in a playlist labeled Green Lantern. I already have the 3 songs used in the videos. I really liked the videos and sometimes people will either edit the video or delete it. Which is what happened to an awesome video dedicated as a tribute to Axel from Kingdom Hearts. The song that was used was Going Down In Flames by 3 Doors Down.

These are the songs that I already have that are used in the 3 videos that I'm requesting.

End of Time by Lacuna Coil
See Who I Am by Within Temptation
Animal I Have Become by Three Days Grace

PS I might have a hernia so I'm in a lot of pain right now. Sucks to be me right now.
