2:1 Opinion Exchanges!

Postby Davis 51 » Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:01 am

Well, this is not my first video, but it is the first video I am uploading to the Org. Initially I was going to premiere this after Nekocon, but I figured...what the heck.

The song is another Arcade Fire favorite of mine, the second Arcade Fire song I've used in an AMV, My Body is a Cage. The Anime is my all-time favorite Cowboy Bebop. As the title suggests, I am offering 2:1 exchanges, so if you review this video, I will review up to two of your videos. (of course, if you only want me to review one, I can do that too).

My last video (on youtube only) was extremely intense with effects, which is how I envisioned it, but with this one, I decided to take a slightly different approach and go for broke with 'hidden' effects (i.e. effects one would not notice if they were unfamiliar with the source material), with tons of subtle color adjustments and fine tuning, so any feedback with regards to that would be greatly appreciated, along with suggestions for improvement. I always welcome constructive criticism. Rest assured, my feelings don't get hurt easily, so feel free to be as harsh as possible.

Also note, I have given a lot of "Star Ratings" in the past. If I gave your video a "star rating" at one point and you review mine, I will go back and give a full-scale review.

Downloading your videos now. Also, it sounds like you have a serious codec problem. The video has worked on dozens of computers I've tested it on so far. Did you try watching it in the preview window?

Also, it may have been an incomplete or corrupt download. I literally just checked it and it works fine.

Thanks for your review, and yes, this is still going until I say it's closed. :)

It may be a few days (I have a bunch of project deadlines this week,) but I should have time to write full-scale reviews for both of your videos around Saturday or so. Any others I get before then will go up around the same time.

To all: Be sure to check my reply comments to your reviews, I've replied to each and every one of them in some form, with the exception of AimoAio, which I promise will go up the same time I review your videos! I've tried my best to thoughtfully clarify questions you had and offer insight to points you raised.

Also, AmioAio, rewatch the first five seconds for the lipsync. :awesome:

Thanks for the review! I'm sorry I haven't gotten around to yours or Aimo's yet. I thought I would have had time to do them Saturday but work unfortunately got in the way. Wednesday is my next day off so I WILL have time to sit down and review them by then no matter what.

No problem!

I should warn all newcomers to this thread, I'm probably gonna close this thread at the end of the month. Maybe a little past that. It all depends on when I can get my next AMV out.

That being said, this offer is considered open until I say it's closed. If the end of the month passes and I haven't posted otherwise, it's still good and you shouldn't be afraid to post. If 2011 passes into 2012 and the thread is still open then it is still good. All I'm saying is there is a chance I may close it in February, but I reserve the right to change my mind.
