I liked it. :3 Technical was very nice, good editing all around. Cept for the story could have been a bit more detailed in my opinion. Thats just the only flaw I have. But pretty great edit though. Good luck. :3

I'm waiting for your comment then :awesome:

Quite a lot of people appear to have problems with understanding what's going on there, but well, maybe I'll do better next time ^^'. Thanks, I'm glad you liked it!

irriadin wrote:I enjoyed the mood and atmosphere. Good use of instrumental. However, I can't help but feel that the video is a bit lacking in substance. There doesn't seem to be anything more to it than what is written in the video description. Why the boy cares about the girl, what the girl represents to him... we don't know and I feel like the scene selection doesn't bring the amount of mystery it should. So I appreciate the technical side of things, but the story really didn't do much for me. Good luck!


Like I said above, I need to work on my story-telling both for easy understanding and for making it 'have more sense'. I'll try to concentrate on that when doing next projects of this type. Thanks a lot ;)

I won't repeat the same thing for the third time here, just read above xD. Thank you!

Seriously, I wouldn't expect the vid to be recieved as well as it is :ying: :ying:

Its hard to make an instrumental AMV and keep it interesting enough for me to watch from start to finish. I managed to watch it all, good vibe and some nice technical work. :up:

Stunning amv.
I love blue and sparkling videos, and the plot is quite easy to understand, even if it could be told better: it would have been more interesting if you showed what kind of relationship there was between the boy and the "ghost" girl.
However I really enjoyed this, it's not easy to combine different sources that good. Good luck for the contest!

I wrote about the story thing above^^. I'm glad you liked it anyway :ying:

As I needed some break with studying, I've done a fast 'making of'. Aspect ratio is bad but, oh well, need to get back to studying.

First of all: Awesome job! :up:

Now that I got that out of my system, let's get a little more specific...

I loved every bit of the video, including the story. With the recent abundance of crossover videos with tight storytelling following pretty much the same pattern of unrequited/tragic love, what you did felt like a breath of fresh air. A storytelling video built solely on emotions, a mystery but unpretentious amv. I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea but the vague storytelling was precisely what made the atmosphere so strong. I actually even felt that the photo frame at the end was telling too much, and since it is a very concrete and in crossover videos overused object it felt kind of disrupting to the whole mystery atmosphere.

Anyways... loved it!

EDIT: just please don't make your storytelling too easy to understand. I want to see more videos like this one^^

I liked it, the blue feeling is cool, the implementation of the different animes and how you managed to make it burst when the music finally takes off :D Could have been smoother and cleaner at some parts but it was ok overalls. Good job and good luck in Akross!
