AWA 2011 Pro Video Discussion Thread

Postby Fall_Child42 » Tue Aug 23, 2011 10:24 pm

Well there is going to be one of these threads sooner or later. :dino:

Lets hear all of your complaints and compliments!

Or anything else that surpises you this year.

For me It seems there is alot more upbeat/fun/comedy videos this year and this makes me smile.

Welp as soon as I'm done downloading and have a chance to watch them I'll have my amv by amv review. This year I decided to spend 20 seconds watching each video and base my reviews offa that.

01. So far my favorite out of the batch. Cool concept, solid flow, great use of multi-sources.

02. This was pretty well synced, but I didn't think there was a lot of consistency in the video. Also, the music I felt was unfitting and too upbeat for the more dramatic scenes.

03. Pretty good use of typography, but I did not like the re-use of scenes for the chorus. The concept is funny, but I felt it went a little long for 4:00.

04. This video had some decent parts here and there, but I think it could have used a lot more time and effort to tighten up the sync and editing.

05. I really liked the concept of the video and it was pretty well edited throughout. My problem was having the male characters lip synced to the music as well. I thought it was unnecessary and felt it would have worked better if only the female characters were lip synced with the video.

06. This video has my vote for Outstanding Use of the Divx Logo.

07. Pretty decent 'sexy' video.

08. Good sync and editing, but dialogue was difficult to hear over the music. I thought it could have been mixed a little better.

09. This was a pretty well done magical girl amv. Good transitioning between multiple sources. Clips were pretty well fitted with the mood of the music. Good video, I thought.

10. This started off really, really well. Great pacing and editing up until about the half way point. From there I felt that it didn't have the same energy that was present in the first half. Still a pretty solid video, imo.

Will post about other videos over time.

Please remember that this is supposed to be blind. Please respect the other creators and their videos.

You should take a look at last year's commentary most comments for the reviews trash the video in some way. Most of us do it in good fun.

My request still stands. "Most" do it in good fun, and "most" don't get offended.

Sorry. I'll try to be a little more respectful with my comments about the videos. It was late night when I posted that and I have no tact at those hours ... <.<

I thought the term "blind" meant "you don't know who made it", not "judge it privately without making public comment" - what does blind judging have to do with the tone of the comments? As long as you're not outing someone as the creator, it'll still be blind judging.

As much as i respect you, the is not the awa site and also this is not a official thread. I'm not flaming on purpose but i also won't hold back my thought when some entry really annoys me. Thats all. /me starts watching.


Also... thanks for the streaming opportunity. [EDIT] damn just smaller downloads ... never mind

exactly that... please don't out someone as the creator... even if it is you self... that was my reminder about the blind judging.

and Cenit... i am not enforcing anything in this thread. I don't own this forum, nor am I a moderator... it is up to amvorg to decide that... my request was just that... a request. This is a public(ish) forum and what you do hear is outside of my control, as it should be.

the streaming will be available during the actual voting (probably just during the final phase, due to the amount of space required on the page)...

I won't be offended by reviews of my video, although it's probably because I know just about everything people are going to say. I wish I would have had more time to fix all the problems in my video, but oh well, it's completed and I've moved on, haha.
