Valentine MEP [Phase One]

So, here we are. Welcome to this new episode of the Valentine MEP. Valentine's Day is a very special moment for letting get you into the romantic mood. And the day to let know those friends how much you appreciate them <3 <3 <3

About the conditions:

- No matter how much experience you currently have, you can join to this MEP, meaning no auditions. However, I'll have to approve the final version of your vid, so you should send me the best version of your clip. I mean of course the technical aspect, since that's what I'll check about the track. As long as there's no encoding errors, bad aspect ratio, interlacing or any other glitch into the track it will be ok.
- You can send me from 1 to 3 tracks, but only if you have sent at least 1 completed track :up:
- Please no artifacts: Logos, subtitles, interlaced footage, different aspect ratios, or bad quality/encoding files.
- Remember: This is an AMValentime MEP so all the tracks should be related to the Valentine's Day theme. It can be Comedy, Drama, Sentimental, Romance, Action, whatever way you want to show it, excepting Hentai and Gore. Org's friendly stuff :book: and please PG-13.
- Deadlines: February 8-9.
Please, have your tracks ready before this day. Weekend before the Valentine's Day, the MEP will go through betatesting. Several contacts will be made before this time, so please have a word with me.
-I expect to premiere the Valentine MEP at FEbruary 14th. This is the reason why I need the final tracks before that day, remembering the experiences in the last Valentine MEP. We want to premiere it this time at the day it should be :up:
-I like the rule "first comes first serves" but in case 1 anime is already taken, editor A never made a contact and editor B request that anime, I'll give it to him/her. So basically don't get lost, if you believe you can't complete the track please let us know.
-Anime mix will be allowed. Even animes taken will count as long as you make a good remix with the other animes

Technical requirements for the MEP:

- Codecs: Huffy, Lagarith, MP4 (H,264), Xvid, Divx
- Audio: I'll prefer a WAV file uncompressed.
- Video 16:9 (848x480). I want to keep the same quality in the whole MEP so I'll prefer to have this format, though if everyone wants another, I will change it
- fps: 23.97
- Make sure you don't have any problem playing the vids. I'll PM if I found any problem with it
- Remember: Best quality possible
- And like every MEP: Leave 2-5 seconds at the beginning and in the end of the clip, for transitioning purposes. This means video. If you want to leave an audio fade, it's up to you :awesome:

It's showtime :bear:

I dont know if someone will agree with me,but i think 848x480 is just...not enought...it could be 1280x720...just so it could be good :))))

True, but then there's a problem: Remember that not all the anime footage is in 720p, and in the last year experience, several editors wanted to use anime footage that didn't have that resoultion, so that's the reason why it's kept with the actual one

I'm a little mad that "My Little Monster" (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun) didn't end the way I wanted it to. I think that I'll still have enough scenes to make my vid though.

Watch the lip flap throughout the video. It's subtle, but it keeps popping up and is one of the first things that I constantly notice.

Otherwise, solid work. 1:02-End is where I start personally seeing it start to lose its focus, but that's mostly because of the sync/scene selection is so wildly different than what was presented to us at that point. I like the effects and the change of pace there, BUT the scene selection should stay on target of the video's mood. The really goofy scenes just don't match up like the more serious ones.
