I cringe everytime i even think of editing more than 3 minutes of a song, 8 would prolly kill me, so kudos to you for sticking it out.
The problem with cosette is that you can run out of footage when faced with a long ttrack (esp a "metal" track) due to it being a movie, at least it didn't look like you ran out here.
I deffinately missed the point of a lot of the scenes to lyrics ( /me not speak german) :P though i'm sure i would understand if you gave me some of your vodka >.>
new banzors in the making :p

I liked this amv, unfortunately I can't speak German (still) so I couldn't catch the story quite, but I have a feeling there was more behind this amv than just random scenes that sort of fit to the music. I agree with a lot of what Ingow said, so GJ :up:

As yourself and others have mentioned, I would have probably got more out of this video if I understood the lyrics, however, I still found this AMV really interesting to watch. Good work! :up:

I <3 this.

There were just two things that bothered me a bit. First, those garbage frames [like others have mentioned] could have been avoided by exporting as lossless [if you have the space]. Second, the luma range seemed shifted; like making the blacks and whites less intense to fit TV settings. Surprisingly, this changed the mood for me the same way some editors would add film grain to a video. Did you do that on purpose? Anyways I watched it once normally, then again in MPC via an avisynth script like this:
Code: Select all
directshowsource("Kevmaster - Desiderium.mp4")
Levels(50, 1, 256, 0, 265)

and I think I liked it more that way.

but overall big :up:

Once I get the footage I'll be making a ~2 minute Black Metal POS, however it should be much more painful.

I finally got around to watching this amv and I believe you did a great job.

There was some aspects of the amv that I thought was either too overpowering or felt a bit out of place, but I thought you hit the atmosphere of the song well.

On the contrary to Reda's post, I actually liked the change in editing over the 8 minute span.

It portrayed out the song's emotions and brought a different feeling during certain areas.

Too bad about the video quality, but I seriously enjoyed this.

Encoding and shit means nothing, it got on my nerves too when I was rendering my post-rock video. Who cares, it's the content that counts.

Well uh, where to start on my comments on this. It was pretty much one of the very few projects on the org where I honestly could say that it was worth making. Considering when you discovered Dornenreich and when I saw you scrobble that song more than usual I'd say you didn't spend a year making this, which SOME editors on here DO for 2mins of yet another generic J-Pop M@D. It's more than 8mins long which pretty much makes my post-rock video look bad so next time I'll have to edit a 13mins song, fuck you.
( :down: )

I'm just gonna pull out the things that I noticed, I'm not planning on being objective cause seriously that never worked with me and AMVs, actually doesn't work with me and music or me and paintings either. So w/e.

I was always picturing a black metal AMV to be in the style of black&white high contrast dark and frostbitten woods of the usual album covers. But instead it was a black metal video by Kevmaster and influenced by the personal interpretations of the music. So in the end what I got was a very soft relaxing take on things, with a kind of sexual symbolic under the main focus of things. The grey overtone felt like a hint at a certain feeling of oppression and made watching the video a bit uneasy for the viewer.

Even though this is probably my least favorite song on that album you can IMO instantly see what a difference expressive and atmospheric music can be for a video. I also can understand why you choose this song since it has good lyrics to build up a very nice plot on. While I rarely can follow any clear storyline when I haven't seen the anime before in an AMV at least in this video I was able to see that the plot somehow felt like it wasn't just randomly thrown together and following the anime (especially since I think that Cossette is overused as hell, but here I didn't find most of the scenes I was waiting on. They were there though, just not as in your face as I'm used to).

More objective than personal speaking this would still be a great video though. Given the time spent on it, the fact that you don't write a full essay on it in the video info to show how DEEP and IMPORTANT it really is, and the fact that I could really feel some passion in there makes this overall a really good video.

:up:
