So, this video leaves a really cool impression. While being technically impressive and perfectly lyric-synched it managed to express a really dark and moody feeling. The colors and effects, the scene selection, the composition and sync are really something to watch here. But I can't help but see it as a bit of a (sex) slave of the music, as I missed seeing the already interpreted lyrics of the track, instead of the raw words simply put into picture. This might sound like a serious flaw, but (at least for me) it isn't. It makes understanding and enjoying quite a bit more difficult though, and thus less mainstream: It might be the perfect hipster video :P
Minor flaws include the monochrome-inverted-characters on dark-backgrounds (4th screenshot), which seemed out of place, because that's really the only surreal effect in the whole video, and the display of the lyrics on screen (they give off the intention of making sure the viewer notices this awesome lyric-sync :P). But it probably would be really hard to understand the lyrics at that part, that much I must admit.
Overall this one is quite a enjoyable video. I personally am really puzzled by the fact that this one didn't make it into the finals.

I love your drama videos, and this one is no exception! :up: Your scene selection and use of effects really helped to sell the concept of this video. As always, I look forward to your next video!

First of all, thank you for your time to leave a comment here, I rarely see you on the .org! :amv: So about the lyrics/scenes connection, yes, this video and most of my other ones is highly based on lyric sync. Where would I be today without it! The term "sex slave" depicts it very accurately... While it's not everyone's cup of tea, I really hope it's the video's biggest advantage. Anyway, I'm putting aside all subjective opinions and I thank you once again for your kind words, I was in some kind of confusion on what overall impression this video gives to the average viewer... Your more professional look on this cleared things straight! :up:

And this is the awkward moment when one of your favourite editors praises you on your video... Totally glad you liked it Fizziks! You shoud try Drama too sometime in the future :wink:

I don't know why..but I didn't even have to watch the whole thing and it's already one of my personal favorites. Very amazing indeed. It's such a shame you weren't a finalist though.

Thank God, you're the first one that praises me for my typography. Thanks for your kind words lloyd, I really appreciate this! :D

It's quite an honour to get a response from one of the contest's winners. Thank you Hayden, I believe I'll be seeing you again in the same contest, next year :up:



Also... more than half of the comments I'm getting is about me, deserving to get to the finalists of Japan Expo. What can I say... that was up to the judges, nothing I can do about it. Opinions are subjective... maybe all of the 26 finalists were really better than me.

Well, I bet you know my opinion about the vid very well, so let me just say you did some awesome piece of work again. While there are some minor flaws for me, general editing is very solid and clean. And this is some very intense atmosphere! I'm proud of you <3

and... Yes, you totally should have made it to the finals at least.

Usually this isn't the kind of video I like, but the mood and atmosphere was really awesome. :up:

Like everyone else, I think this definitely should have been in the finals. I actually liked it a lot more than the videos that came first and second, but that's just me. xD
