Horry Shite! The aussies making a comeback?
Throw some Lockstock into this and make videos on a more frequent basis and I'll be so jelly =w=
You and your Eva movies lol
I should probably preface this with saying I haven't watched any of the Eva movies, and I mean ANY of them. I watched the original series when it played on Adult Swim and that was kind of the end of my interaction with Eva. This is probably the first video that made me want to watch
them though. Normally, all I take from Eva AMVs are "holy crap, the animation is great, look how weird everything is and also, fighting!" so I was always kinda ehhhh on the subject. Not to say those other videos were bad, but with the way it was always used I guess I just got into this mindset that Eva is nothing but source material as opposed to an actual story. Maybe it was the fact that you used Oasis, maybe it was something else, but this was one of the rare moments where I actually gave a shit about Shinji.
That being said, the video is far from perfect
Considering the movie just had decent rips come out I don't imagine you spent tons of time editing this. Lip flap, messy flow and lack luster sync killed it for me a decent amount of the time, but overall I still enjoyed it. Even if I couldn't follow the story perfectly, I still got the sense that shit has gone wrong, and shit is still wrong, but Shinji is really trying to hold on and maybe find a glimpse or two of what is still right.
While it obviously won't turn the editing world on it's side, it's a good quickie video and even with it's faults I still enjoyed it quite a bit.
