Maybe once a year is a bit much.. on the other hand.. most of the videos get done in the last month(s) anyway, so stretching it to two years isn't going to solve anything.
Having more activity (in the thread, a website, etc) might help.
I have a WIP for my video. Especially the end needs quite a bit of more work, and there are still some lip sync issues, but I'll be able to squash those out.http://sketsi.com/salad/amvs6-wip.avi
Tell me what you think.
I don't think it's a matter of the timeframe or the interval, personally. It is very much a matter of organization. I have spoken to Deuce in private regarding organization and keeping people on the ball. It's not about badgering people to do stuff, but there must be a coordinator whose primary purpose is to keep everyone up to speed on what's happening and check to make sure they're doing all right. If necessary, we should also be helping each other out with ideas. I'm a big fan of collaboration, because I've found it always leads to stronger finished projects in everything I've been a part of.
We all have lives that make us forget about the video editing when things get tense, but that's where project leadership is supposed to be, so if we are to continue strongly, it's just a matter of bumping up our communication with a system. We get new members each year showing interest, but we never follow through with them from what I have seen, and new members are key to keeping things fresh. If you look at our work for the past four years, we have a lot of the same clips and sources and styles, and newness mixes that up. It may actually be fun to all chat over Skype to brainstorm ideas either later this month or for next year.
As for your clip, Krvabo, I like it. It's very cute, but in my honest opinion it feels like it's not quite a complete idea (I'm not talking about unfinished lip-sync, but the 'punchline' of sorts). I don't really find it that amusing, it feels more like a cute idea that makes me remember that I like K-on. I feel like it could be more unique. As it is now, it's relying entirely on Weird Al to make it funny, but the song isn't different enough from K-on's song to know how I should be feeling about it as an audience member. I think it's a simple issue of it just might be lacking reaction shots. Some quick reactions from Ui and/or their teacher in the audience as if they're at the concert being all like "...uuhh" or Ui kind of lamenting her sister's idiocy will give the audience a frame of reference I think. Other than that, I look forward to seeing the completed lip-sync. It looks good so far.
