Re: I'm wondering about loose editing but perfect scenes.

Loose editing works best in upbeat videos and action, not so much in drama videos. :) Uhh...I guess this is all subjective but I 100% disagree with this statement. Upbeat and action videos benefit the most from tight sync, because they typically use beat-heavy songs. Ignoring that is going to make ...

Re: I'm wondering about loose editing but perfect scenes.

Some of my favorite videos are not those that have tight sync, but really strong mood sync (which I think is what you mean). Sync can take all different forms, and although the most obvious thing to do is to find beats or strong musical cues to sync to with cuts, effects, or internal motion, I think...

Re: VY CMa

I thought that I was a "Gainax fan," but can I really be one if I've never seen this anime? Whatever, this has me hyped to watch it now. This is beautiful, dazzling, as pretty of a no-effects video as I've ever seen. I really loved the flow of this, it was upbeat and had a really visceral...

Re: artist block lament

This is probably the least helpful advice ever but you just have to start. Try putting things on the timeline, if they don't work, scrap it and try something else. This takes hours sometimes. In my last video, I had a session where I made zero progress in finding good clips for about 2-3 straight ho...

Re: Muted (AWA Pro Best Storytelling)

I really like this, a lot. I haven't seen the movie you used so I'm not quite sure what's going on, but it intrigued me enough that I'm putting it on my short list of things I need to watch. I look forward to being able to read your explanation of the video after seeing the movie (holding off on tha...

Re: The Atlas Syndrome

I tend to like surreal videos like this, but this one didn't do much for me -- I really wish there had been more things that held the scene selection together, 'cause as it stands it just looks like a jumble of unrelated stuff happening all at once. Which may have been the entire point, in which cas...

Here's my other AWA Pro video. Didn't get great reception in the review thread, but I'm actually really fond of it right now. Maybe you'll like it too, I dunno :shrug:

Re: Fair and Square

Gratz on Action and Upbeat. :up: I really dug this vid a lot. Thanks Shin! Glad you enjoyed, and congrats on your win as well! I love it when you make videos like this, always getting my share of just plain old master class editing. I can't say yet for sure but I bet this will be one of my top favo...

Re: Obligatory, annual, elitist AWA 2016 Pro AMV review!

Okay, so I've been thinking about this all last night and this morning, and the more I think about it, the worse I feel. Straight-up, I was a dick with a lot of my reviews, and reading other people's responses (and then re-reading a bunch of what I wrote) made me realize that things like this: But d...

Re: Obligatory, annual, elitist AWA 2016 Pro AMV review!

I'm just going to give a response here because I have a feeling that irriadin's and Vivifx's posts were aimed at least partly in my direction. Pro holds a special place in my heart. It was, I believe, the first contest I ever entered, and I love the idea behind it -- blind and peer-judged. To my kno...

Re: Obligatory, annual, elitist AWA 2016 Pro AMV review!

HOKAY LET'S TRY THIS AGAIN. Reviews below (all of them this time, pretty sure). Gave each a score out of 10. Enjoy? 16-020 - 4/10 - Pretty boring. These types of sentimental non-anime montages rarely work for me, and there wasn't enough editing to salvage this one. Pacing seemed way off and it w...

Re: Obligatory, annual, elitist AWA 2016 Pro AMV review!

Ok, finally done with my reviews. Super salty about a lot of these videos, I know I take this probably more seriously than I should, but I had strong reactions to a lot of these videos, so I'm sorry in advance. Kind of. Actually jk lol just realized I missed a bunch, will be back once I watch the on...
