To all you FMA AMV makers out there!  
This thought just dawned upon me, What would people think to a FMA LJ community for AMV contests? I mean you always tend to find a whole bunch of icon contests why not AMV's? Basically every month or so, depending on how long it usually takes most people to make their AMV searching for the right clips and such. The moderator will pick a song and a theme to make the AMV to...people send in their entries and then people vote.

If this sorta post isn't really allowed feel free to delete and I'll post it up in my own LJ, But seeing as there alot of AMV makers here who like FMA (Well obviously! This is a FMA Community afterall.) I thought it maybe something new and fun to do.

There isn't enough footage to support a whole AMV - community if you want to make contests. After a while, people couldn't do anyhing but repeating themselves and that's boring, isn't it? However, a community, where people can post the links to their AMVs would be good. Or, if you want to be nice to the fandom, make a list of the already posted AMVs by backtracking the entries. I bet the mods will be happy 'cause that'll take a lot of work off their shoulders.

I like the idea, but it'd be hard to get many entries done . . . how about this; choose a few songs or themes for each contest. The amv maker has to use one of those songs or themes (be it one of each or a few of one or the other or whatever you want to do) for the entry.

It'd be nice for a once and a while thing, but not a whole community based on it. I guarentee, I would NOT be able to do a good video in a month (the least amount of time I work on my vids now is 2 months). I think just a community for FMA AMVs would be good, where you could go and critique. Then if you get enough members, you can try a contest. So, in simple terms:

Make a community for FMA AMVs
Post for critique and stuff
When you get enough members, do an amv contest

Hope that helps ^^ (i would so join if you made that comm :p)

I like the idea of FMA AMV awards but not contests. In the my first fandom, Buffy, there are a lot of awards sites but it's not something I've seen a whole lot of for FMA.

I think it would have to be longer than a month. AMVs take a considerable amount of time to make. Also, personally, I am not big on vidding what other people tell me to vid, so I'm not sure that there should be themes and songs issued. Challenged maybe, but not required. I mean, every few months, a few members or even all of them, could enter their videos in different categories like best editing, best lip syncing, best song, best romance, etc, and then the community could vote or a few judges could decide the winners in each categories. That's just what I'm used to doing in other fandoms, but...eh, different strokes, ya know.

FMA Iron Chef. Go.

You could try asking over at the AMV LJ community, or on the http://www.animemusicvideos.org forums if you want some editors rounded up.
