Um. Ok. This is some kind of IC thing. Here's what I thought of each video:
how i flip stuff :=)
First thing I noticed is the sync is very weird. The editing doesn't seem to suit the music at all, in dynamics and style.
The mask at 0:25 is a good idea and the lip synch is pretty good, but I noticed that the mask wasn't completely flush against the side of the screen (you can see parts of the video on the outer edge).
The biggest problem here is that the scene selection is pretty boring. It seems like you took just one or two episodes of Angel Beats (and just one episode of Samurai Champloo) and called it a day.
Mixing two different songs in a video just over a minute long is :/
The transition at 0:43 looks bad. A simple crossfade would have been much less egregious.
And the video just stops, no ending to speak of.
I liked some of your ideas (like the hit-counter thingy) but you need to work on the basics a bit more; things like good scene selection, careful syncing to the music and an overall coherent theme.
Angel Beats AMV Editing Extravangza
To start with, I like that the theme of this video is established right at the beginning. Good job!
I do not like the border effect used periodically throughout the video. Adding a heavy black border like that draws the eye and is just about as bad as mixing different aspect ratios. Don't do it.
Syncing black-levels to the beat of the music is an interesting idea, but your effect comes across a little too strong.
What happened from 00:43-00:45? It's complete blackness with a couple frames of clip thrown in at random. It doesn't look good...
Time jutters can be a cool effect if used carefully. But carrying the same effect for 10 seconds (00:49-00:59) gets stale and boring. Try to use that effect in very brief moments.
1:00-1:07 was kinda lazy. Flashing to the music like that is not compelling sync. Plus, I kept looking at all the lip flap.
However, good ending! You've got a coherent theme and apart from the issues mentioned above, the editing isn't bad. I liked this one better than the other.
