[Japan Expo 2012] Resonate

Made this for Japan Expo's AMV contest and got 14th place in the final rankings so I'm pretty happy. :mrgreen: I saw this series a few weeks earlier and really loved it but it made me sad to see only 17 videos in the catalogue that included this source (4 videos if you exclude multianime and MEPs) so I decided to go ahead and make my own.

It's been so long since I edited a sentimental video I almost forgot how to edit one. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy it and maybe check out the source if you like it. Manga or anime, either way is good. The setting and plot of this is one of the most unique I've seen. :)

As I've already said on youtube
This is amazing, May
It's editted without any really visible effects. It all feels so natural.
By far the most beautiful amv with Tegami Bachi I've seen so far.

Congrats on your 14th place, you deserve it if not better :up: :awesome:

I'll follow ibabrak's lead and copy my YT comment ;)

Lovely mood and serene pacing. The effects used complement the atmosphere wonderfully. Things like the mask transition at 1:04 really sell the sense of isolation or loss that you're trying to convey. Overall, great job!

Congratulation Pan--- I mean Secretary :'D I haven't seen much of this show being used in videos ever since it released D: I haven't seen the show myself, but I got interested after seeing this, fitting atmosphere and theme, I'm still uncertain about the 3D windows being a vital part of the plot, it could've been done without them, but they're a nice addition at some parts of the video.

Good job :up: *goes back finishing that poster* D:

I loved it :D
I think you would have deserved a little more at JE (but this is only my opinion) I was very impressed by the sad atmosphere , it was you very good at selecting scenes.
The only thing I did not like were the borders to the rest is a very good job :up:

argh, you should really keep me better informed about your new amvs :evil:

Buuut... I don't really think this is among your best work. I did like the fact that the pacing kept up with the intensity of the song towards the end but on the other hand the beginning was too dynamic (before the drums kick in). I also didn't really get what you were trying to do with the narrative. It seemed like a random endless collection of clips of some white haired dudes :uhoh:

It was alright :up: but definitely not my favorite of your amvs.

Hey!

I didn't know who did this and it was actually you xD It's more interesting to look it at home than on the giant screen at the convention (because it was dark and yeah, a bit long xD it's not the same mood)
So in the end I liked it, not loved it because I'd join Mims for the idea, I guess it's not the kind of amvs I'd watch over and over again but it's still entertaining.
For the technical aspects, some lip synch/flap bothered me, it didn't look right there, and the idea of the windows could have been better executed imo, they were like flying in the air but yeah it could have been better implemented I think.
But overalls, everything's good so yeah, good job and congratz on your place! :D

In my opinion the were executed flawlessly. For they look exactly like they do in the actual series. Well, I guess most people haven't seen Tegami Bachi.. it's not really known :)

Like Mims said it was long, and can be boring (it depends of if the viewer saw the anime or not i guess). To me, it was well edited enough to be quite high in the ranking, no particular mistqke, but i think you can do much more better.
