So here is the idea. AMVs that have original animation that is of the actual quality of the show being animated, but instead of just taking clips from a show you actually make the animation with the characters lip syncing the actual song.

So that is the idea now what? I need a team of animators that can match the exact style and quality of each individual show I name along with the music to go with it....

Oh, but don't worry, I'll make the storyboards.

xD

In all honestly this is my dream goal, but I have never animated before and I suck at drawing. Wouldn't the idea be awesome though?

What are some animes YOU would make an actual music video for if you could? What songs would you use and what would happen in the video?

i know this is just your dream, but it's going to stay that way without serious moolah.
do some research and you'll find the minimum budget for a 30 minute segment is $150,000 - $200,000 dollars. Break that down into the average song length and you still pay $15,000 - $20,000. Juuuust sayin.

Animators can trace over shots from anime by onionskinning so you can copy them and rig the vertices to form your own animations constrained to that perspective. Lip-syncing the audio is usually easy depending on the software used. Your only choice is to do it yourself... animators aren't cheap.

Frame by frame animation however is a task that would be way out of reach and even more expensive to outsource...


That's a cool idea if you can put in the work. Just be sure to properly prepare.

Again guys, this is just a dream idea not something I plan on pursuing. And Brain by a team of animators I was referring to people on this site and some friends in real life not using an actual budget with paid animators lol.
