Well, I have done that for some parts already. The thing is, the part that this is happening to, there are already 5 short clips in the first 15 seconds. I would love to ignore these beats to be honest, but the beats stand out too much at the beginning, I have to do SOMETHING with them.
Actually, I will get a clip of my spot. I will have a beta tester person after it is done for the most part, but he doesn't do as much AMVs as I do, and since he has never seen the show, and I am hoping he does, I want the whole thing to be pretty fresh when he DOES see it, so you know.... I can get the criticism straight on for what he thinks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6magf7N7Lhs
It is going to be a romance video despite how it opens, so yeah, it doesn't need to be overly flashy, but the idea of why I need something going on there should be seen. Flashes get old fast. I was thinking of keeping them from :15 on though..... possibly.
The reason I cannot add changes to the clips to the beat is because up to where the music gets a bit more intense, I have to let it known that this event happened with the character. There is already little time to place him at there he is, so much seems rushed if I don't. I have even went to the point of adding a prologue to the video before this starts.
