Generic source. I honestly planned on editing with Guilty Crown myself... but I chose against it for some reason. ^_^;;; Anyway, Critique Time!Positives:
*Editing is almost spot on! That's what I always love about your videos! They always have good editing and flow.*
*There is a sense of a concept being followed, though not completely understandable*
*Dat internal SYNCH!!! Especially at 1:38 - 1:40 and 1:45 - 1:48. F*cking awesome! *O* Maybe add some more camera shakes after the tower just to flow the same motion after wards*Negatives:
*Generic Source... Luckily, isn't just a bunch of opening scenes! xD
*I can't completely follow your concept. I understand people are being taken over, and that there's only one guy that can save them. But your follow through with your scenes makes me confused. For example: From the beginning to 1:05, I followed through completely, but.. Right after that, I instantly thought: "Ok... Why is he on a train platform?...
" and, suddenly afterwards at 1:10, I thought: "Dafuq??!! 0.o Why the hell is he running through fire with a girl?!
" Then, suddenly afterwards, I thought: "DAFUQ???!!!! O_O Why is she falling from the sky and why is he trying to grab her?! I don't understand!!!!
". After that, I understood what was going on. The main concept was being followed again, which is cool. But... right after 2:22, I was wondering where the main girl went. I'll just add it as something different because I think I see what happened...
*2:00, everything before was going great, even the great tragedy of the main girl, however, at 2:29, I was expecting the girl to disappear... I don't know who this random guy is, or where he even came from?! 0.o The girl, however, should've had a longer lasting tragedy so it sinks into the viewer's eye that she's gone, for good. And it should also sink into the main guy as well so everyone will see that she has disappeared and that he is extremely sad. Trust me, it adds for amazing suspense because everyone will relate to the guy as well.* ;D
*2:32 - 2:39: Random scenes that do nothing for the concept. Great editing... but those scenes don't help your concept*
*Also, 0:52 - 0:54: Obviously sped up. Just sayin'
Overall, however, I see great potential for this AMV! Your editing is nearly great (Soft and Subtle is the way to go). However, you need to build your concept better if your holding a concept for your AMV. Know what your trying to achieve and achieve it the best way possible. Editing is great and is hard to do for a lot of people (Especially me), but if your concept is flat, then the video will be just a bunch of random action scenes. Build your concept better and you won't be disappointed. If concept isn't something you want to achieve, then that's fine too. I do believe you'll make it to the next round but, please... build your concept.
