AnimeMusicVideo (AMV for short) is the term used to describe anime video clips that have been edited together with music.
These fan-made videos are often edited to fit the rhythm or mood of the music particularly well. Creating a good AMV requires a lot of work and dedication. All the steps such as the planning/concept phase, scene selection, operation of the video editing software and, if necessary, final fine-tuning can take a lot of time.
The results cover a huge spectrum: from rather trailer-like plot summaries to complete plot twists or even the meeting of characters from completely different anime universes. In some cases, the video quality can even be raised to a whole new level through massive post-production.
At DoKomi 2023, you can expect numerous program topics and over 700 hand-picked AMVs full of hard-hitting action, terrific comedy and heartrending romance. In addition, the award ceremony for the AMV contest has also been taking place here since 2022.
