The rules:

1. No heavy metal unless you can make it without epilepsy-inducing black/white fades. I'm one of those guys who thinks that at every convention ever, the Action category has always been the weakest, exclusively because of this type of video.
2. If it's a romance vid, that's cool, but have more to it than facial closeups. Too many romance/sentimental vids fall into the trap of filling time with close-ups of characters crying without context.
3. It must be anime. Family Guy doesn't count.
4. Nothing by the following artists: Lady Antebellum, Evanescence, Carly Rae Jepsen, A Simple Plan, Bruce Springsteen.
5. None of the following animes: Azumanga Daioh, Excel Saga, FLCL, Madoka Magica, Death Note, Haruhi. Not that these aren't good animes; they're great. But they're overdone in AMV's.

I will be honest. I won't flame, but I won't give excessive praise unless it's excessively praiseworthy. I will give constructive feedback where I can.

First 10 in this thread will get replies within the week. Bonus if you can introduce me to an anime OR musical artist I don't know and become interested in.

Cheers!

I'm really interested in hearing your opinion about this video. It is a (black, not heavy) metal video, does have a few spots with epilepsy-inducing black/white fades but is however, neither an action video nor does it seem to be what you're denying here. That alone makes me really curious.
If you decide on leaving me an opinion, it'd be appreciated.

EDIT: And here I see you've already left an opinion on the video. My bad. I'll see if I have another one for you. And I'm going to re-read what you wrote back then right now :D

EDIT2: Hah, I remember your opinion. I don't think I need another one. Seems we're having extremly opposite opinions about editing and thus I cannot give you any video you'd enjoy :rofl:

Newbie editor here, with a WIP of my first serious project. Pretty sure I meet all the requirements.

Video: Going On (direct link to the video file)
Category: Character Profile, Serious
Anime: Royal Space Force: Wings of Honneamise
Song: Going On
Artist: Gnarls Barkley
Creator: capnoblivious (sudo studios)

It's fairly close to completion, but there are one or two sections that I plan to re-work. Please ignore the subtitles; it's a placeholder shot until I can crop it from the BluRay. I'm interested in comments on both creative and technical aspects of the video.

Please PM me your opinion. Thank you very much!

EDIT: Added more info.

Haha, patience. I said "within the week." I just got done with Champagne Supernova; sorry I'm so slow. :p
