This is phenomenal! I really loved a lot of the content in this video; the editing was smooth as glass (and perhaps you draw some influences from -Gfn-?) but it was your content that kept this interesting for me. There was a huuuuuge juxtaposition of nature versus technology with plenty of hand imagery suggesting the power of humanity and opening it up for interpretation.

To me this was a video about power and how to handle it, what somebody experiences and how they handle multiple aspects of their life. The editing was fantastic and I totally dug the song. Visually this was a real treat, but as I said, it's the content that is going to keep me coming back to this one.

The only drawback of this video was the actual length. I did lose a little bit of focus towards the middle section as it got a smidgen less interesting, and it began to feel drawn out. I'd always rather want MORE of a video than less of it, but again that's really the only strike against you here. Great work!

4.5/5

Please, do! That is exactly what I want to hear.

Right on! I prolly wouldn't have made this if Project Relic didn't suddenly urge me to start collaging together a few graphics in photoshop, which later became the intro. The amvs I watched most when I was feeling uninspired were that one, Rival Revival, -Cross-'s System -BUG- and Undeadborn's Forget Me Not.

Interpret it to your heart's content. It pleases me immensely for people to read into this; every part of it holds a special meaning to me. ^^

Didn't I comment on this already?

I thought I did.

I meant to last night.
Oh well.

I remember recieving a beta for this.

The final turned out fantastic.
I'm not normally a big fan of semi-transparent overlays, but the way you used them in this video really helped set and keep the mood, and it fit perfectly with the rising and falling in the tone of the music.

I liked this video, and I think anyone looking for a well put together dramatic piece will also enjoy this.

Yeah, definitely a pretty good video. Can't say I enjoy the song so much, but I do like what you did with it. It's a unique vision and it's pulled off rather well. Nice job :up:

I remember seeing a really early beta for this and being really underwhelmed by it. I saw it today, and I was SHOCKED to see how far it had come. Even better, my loathing of this source has been fixed! :D

That was fantastic! The mood/music melded perfectly together, and the coloring/overlay effects really did a great job matching to the beat of the song. The concept was strong, the editing pulled it off, and I watched the entire thing without losing any interest throughout it. I do agree that it's [in practical terms], a tad too long, but it wasn't something that really bothered me as a judge/viewer, but I can see where some might not like to keep up with it.

I've also got to say... Best Storytelling VCA? Amirite? |:>

5/5

Awesome work here :up:
Although I haven't yet fully digested the majority of the story (I haven't seen the source, but I'll have to after watching this video), this has to be some of the best editing I've seen in an AMV. Everything, from the overlays to the beat synch and colors, flowed amazingly well. I've watched this over and over again and I only enjoy it more every time.

Absolutely fantastic! This video definantly has much to say and can be interpreted in many different ways. I definantly see a lot of -cross- inspiration in here. At 4:40 that effect was taken straight from system bug. But it worked just as effectively in this. This video to me felt like the vision through the main characters helmet. As if he was going through his memory as he was drowning. The beginning and end being the most computer oriented parts and the scatterd tv glitches through out the video. My only complaint is that the video is too long. The middle really seemed to drag for me. Other than that this was a spectacular video! 9/10
