Thank you for letting me in on the beta! Fun to get a sneak peak at it.
It's a really fun concept that's got a lot of high energy that makes me enjoy it and have fun while watching it, while still having a dramatic element to it. This is as close to a dramatic video that PSG can get to (until I finally get the DVDs and do my own
) The PSG fan in me is constantly squeeing throughout the AMV.
Unfortunately, the critic in me looks at this and sees a lot of room for improvement. For the most part, the AMV is solid. The cuts and scenes are well placed to really play off of Pink's music well, and for the most part it has a solid atmosphere. It really captures the essence of the show's fun/humorous elements.
However, the scene selection really needs some work, and the minor off-sync editing bits really make the enjoyment come to a screeching halt at times.
There's nearly a 15 second clip that offers nothing to the story other than toilet humor (literally!). An example of this is the very first bit of "blow me one last kiss" has a great theme of editing to it with the blowing up villains, but the sync gets cut off abruptly due to an off-synced scene. Various lip flap was prominent, and sped up scenes were also noticeable at times.
The concept is also somewhat inconsistent. What I assumed was an AMV about the relationship between Panty and Stocking (after all this is the Confessions of both a Harlot and Cookie Monster, right?) and their adventures and relationship sort of becomes the "sad Panty story with farm scenes" in what was oddly reminiscent of an episode of the show with the PSG movie.
I'm just being overly critical at this point. Most of my opinion is with the beta I sent out to you.
That being said, I still enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
