Re: The Chariot

Surprisingly I wasn't too crazy about this. The anime/song combo just seemed...off. The song was way too happy/optimistic for most of the scene selection, at least until the end. I dunno...I may need to watch it a couple more times though, because there were some really phenomenal moments in the vid...

Re: Schicksal

I didn't enjoy this, sorry man :/ The visual rhythm didn't seem to match the rhythm of the song at all, and unfortunately that's one of the trickiest things about editing with hip-hop. The video just felt way too slow to me. My bigger issue though was that there didn't seem to be a lot actually goin...

Re: Ghost Audition

Thank you very much, as usual, for the great impressions! Do you mean "me pushing myself" in a technical sense or more in a creative context? Or maybe "pushing the boundaries" as it was the case mostly with GEHIRNSTURMEN? Mmm...I think I'm talking in more "meta" terms....

Re: Ghost Audition

wouldn't say i liked bulge or whatever it was Just my opinion but the "bulge" isn't there to be liked any more than any other shot in the video. I think that what M'o'l was referring to wasn't the last shot, but the constant quick zooms (the "heartbeat" effect) that was used as ...

Re: "Light"

I liked this. I haven't seen the anime, but you really seemed to capture the heart of it...and I'm not sure if I could take it. I could barely take this video emotionally...but that's a compliment, you told a really clear story and the editing was right on. Wasn't so crazy about some of the stylisti...

Re: Ghost Audition

I feel like I could say a lot about this...eventually. I've watched it a couple times now and I feel like there's quite a lot going on that will take me several more viewings to fully dig down to. Regardless of the meaning, I already love this video and am pretty confident it will end up my favorite...

Re: Cear - Jhonny B Goode - Big Contest 2016

I think this is the first proper Ping Pong video I've seen and it's quite good for what it is. I wish there was more story/concept going on, but a fun upbeat action-y video suits the animation well and the video was edited quite well. I enjoyed it :D

Re: ♫ Prince AMV ♫ Stop, Funk n'Roll!

x2 to everything seasons said. Not much in the way of originality but holy crap is it a fun video, and possibly your best-edited one yet (although I don't know if it's my favorite from you). Excellent work, and a worthy tribute :up:

Re: Delusionist (Animefest 2016 winner)

Overused anime in a crossover AMV? Not generally my cup of tea, but wow I loved this. Yet another unique take on Madoka, with a (for once) super clear story and top-notch editing. Also, props for not giving in (too much) to the Umika-style color manipulation that usually plagues these videos and mak...

Re: Singular Strike Gentleman

Hey you released this. I love it, I haven't seen too many OPM videos but this stands heads and shoulders above those that I have seen, it's just so perfect. So much satisfying internal sync and genuinely hilarious lyric sync...yeah I really like this video. I can imagine that this will do very well ...

Re: I'm The Only Me, Right? [Serial Experiments Lain AMV]

This is one of my favorite songs by probably my favorite band, so there are certain standards I was expecting going into watching this. Most of them were met, although there were several things I wish you had done differently...I think the intro portion should have had some lip sync to it, or it sho...

Re: Why are AMV's so rockcentric? Perplexed.

I agree with Koopiskeva that there are other genres much more underrepresented like country. I wonder if that has something to do with the overlap between country music fans and anime fans... it's not as if country music is unpopular (country singers win televised singing competitions all the time ...

Re: Why are AMV's so rockcentric? Perplexed.

For the last year and a half I've been working on the AMV Genome Project , and one of the things I'm tracking is music genre in AMVs. Of the 1,241 videos I've entered into the database, 555 of them do not use rock-based music. Now, this encompasses a huge range of musical styles such as classical, j...

Re: blackhole

I liked it, but only after the drums kicked in and the pace picked up. It did end up feeling like a pretty standard Madoka video -- dark, seething, Madoka/Homura focus, which was kind of a disappointment as it didn't end up standing out from the crowd like I'd hoped. I wish also that you hadn't cut ...
