AMV of the Day: RadioAkshun (Neon Genesis Evangelion)


VsIepqq

The latest “AMV of the Day” pretty much was the hit of Sakura-Con 2013 a couple weeks back.

“RadioAkshun” by AMV creator IleaiAMVs won not just Best Technical, but won both Judges’ Best in Show and Audience Best in Show. It’s a rarity that an AMV in competition wins both Best in Show. AMV judges tend to vote on whats best in competition a little differently than the general public who watches the videos more as fans and not judging them on technical, artistic and creative merit. IleaiAMVs definitely earned her wins by creating one of the best AMVs I’ve seen.

Her work on this video uses scenes and sequences from the Rebuild of Evangelion anime films (three out with a fourth still forthcoming) and edits it around the Imagine Dragons song “Radioactive” and she does an excellent job. She doesn’t rely on flashy effects to make her video interesting and unique. She just does an impeccable job in timing the beats and tempo of the song with the appropriate scenes from the anime films. She also makes sure that she doesn’t just slapdash together the best scenes from the films. IleaiAMVs makes sure that each sequence fits not just the beats and tempo of the song but the lyrics as well. Best example of all three is early in the video when the character of Shinji takes a deep breath and then his Evangelion Unit exhales just as the singer in the song does the very same thing.

Enough talk…just go watch and enjoy.

  1. Thank you for sharing my video, that’s awesome! It’s been getting an overwhelming amount of love since Sakura-con and I definitely appreciate it! ❤ (Minor point of clarification, my name is spelled a little differently haha)

    • I was afraid the spelling was a cipher that I had to break. LOL. honestly, I would’ve loved to have seen the AMV live at Sakura-Con. You plan on entering it at the other cons this summer like AB, AX or Otakon?

      • Actually, I sent it to Anime Boston soon after entering it into Sakura-con’s contest. I don’t generally send my AMVs to a lot of cons. Or, rather, I prefer to make something new for each con. I was considering sending to AX, but I’m still not sure. I’ll definitely be sending to AWA’s Exposition,though, if only because I’ll actually be in attendance and I’d like to see it on a big screen myself, haha!

        • I think with the exposure it’s received since Sakura-Con I’d bet there’ll be some who will be waiting to see it at the major cons. I’ve noticed that many AMVs who end up winning many awards through con season usually get a running start by winning and impressing during the first major ones like Sakura and Fanime.

          This also is the second aMV you’ve been a part of that I consider an all-time favorite. The other video is “Hold On To That Feeling” that you collaborated on with Pwolf. 🙂
