This AMV has been premiered at Japan Expo AMV Contest 2010 and got 2nd place.
Pretty pictures with neat music, that’s my thing. Most of the AMV has a 2.20 aspect ratio because most of the anime is like that. I had the idea of switching to 1.78 during the middle part to increase the contrast with the rest of the video. I didn’t make a “making of” video for this one since there isn’t much to show although there was a lot of work on lip synch foreground/background effect and removing credits. 60 fps is also time consuming and is always a huge technical challenge.
2nd at Japan Expo 2010

Bakemonogatari is a weird anime with stunning graphics at times. I managed to watch episode 1 and 2 and I gave up during the opening of the third one. This anime makes absolutely no sense to me and is just exhausting to watch… but it has some pretty pictures.
I mixed the Original version of Tonight by Yuksek with the “The Bewitched Hands On The Top Of Our Heads Cover” version. I altered the pitch to have female vocals on the middle part of the video.
Pure Thrust was the first well-done AMV I ever watched- meaning, it didn’t have subtitles on the bottom of the screen and wasn’t made in Windows Live Movie Maker.
I still remember what a surprise it was that an AMV could be *this gorgeous*- I watched it over and over and over. I watched Bakemonogatari because of it. Which is funny because you say that you watched only two episodes of Bakemono.
Of course different animes for different people, but it does get a lot better after the first two- it starts…hanging together more, lol.
tl;dr: Pure Thrust is pure gorgeousness.
It’s an awesome work! I really discover the world of “pro” amv with this one, thanks! Will you join to the japan’s expo Amv contest this year? ps:sorry for the mistake, i’ve some difficult with english^^
Yeah, I’ll probably send something to JE. Thx for your message.
Greeting. I’ve been always watching your AMV and thinking I’ll need to say hi sooner or later. Just one questions. How long does it takes to finish the raw works?
I usually need about 2 months to complete the timeline. Then I need 1 month to finish the work.
hey, is this made for speakers/surround sound? because when i play the song with headphones i hear weird noises halfway through, also it couldnt be anything in the background because ive tried it with my ipod
Yeah, I have some distortions on the middle part due to my pitch shifter effect. I only learnt recently how to use it properly.
oh ok, cant wait to see your next amv! 😀
will you ever “remaster” any of your amv’s? the qaulity on most of them are great but id love to listen/watch pure thrust without the distortions, also noticed slight distortions in running man. anyway keep up the great work!
I might, when I have time. But if I do, I’d like to make few improvements to the video also.
This is just amazing. I love your AMVs, i wish everyone would make stuff this good! 😀 Take my hand… tonight 😀 Are there any other artists, Nostromo, that you would suggest to check out? I’d love to know a few.
XD i got through 2 episode of this anime then dropped it for like 2 months because it didn’t keep my attention, but after watching this amv i started watching it again this morning and absolutely love it!! js it does start to make sense after a couple episodes :3
Salut, dite, vous nettoyé vos pistes avec quel logiciel pour rendre une bonne netteté des image dans vos montage?
Je ne nettoie plus mes sources depuis qu’on a de la HD.
Hey I love this amv its the first one i saw of your creations, is there a way i can get the mp3 of the audio mix you used its awesome Thanks
Look for a mp4 dexumer.
Thanks will do, looking forward to your next amv, cant wait
Je vais faire simple: cet Amv m’a réconcilié avec le monde des Amv. Merci pour ce superbe travail.
…I’m spamming but deal with it 😛 again this is one of my…*searches for use of better wording* most esteemed? no, whatever…favorites. ergajhdjaslh…you have no idea how many times I’ve clicked this video. Love your work<3
What font did you used from 00:12 to 00:15?
I tried to look for it in the project file but it seems to be a font that I don’t have on my system anymore, sorry. Weird, I usually keep, save and backup everything. I’d like to get it back though, if anybody knows it.
Bonjour, je voudrais savoir comment faite vous l’effet de tremblement ou de brouillage en vertical à la fin “N o s t ro m o” 0 6-2 0 1 0 Merci.
C’est l’effet Vertical Hold avec Premiere (plusieurs en même temps) et le tremblement est fait avec l’effet shake de Sapphire.
This is one of my favorite amv’s. I’m really impressed you mixed the audio yourself! You’re amv’s have opened up different kinds of music to me, so I really appreciate that. I understand you don’t like Bakemonogatari, but I think visually, it’s one of the more amazing animes. Thank you!
