What kind of transitions were those?! *_* Whatever they were... they were awesome... and I want them *v*
Seeing this video on the big screen at NDK made this already amazing video even more epic.
Awesome job, dude! Can't wait to see what you have in store for your next amv!
Thanks man! Who knows, maybe I will go crazy and edit some more before next year
This definitely should've been in the contest. My crappy Paprika video didn't diverse to be there when this video had to be left out. Good work and I look forward to next year's video
Thank you sir! Kind words Scott, but I liked your Paprika video. Similar music style too. I do agree with you that "I'm Only Getting Started" was the better video, but I still think that "In A Dream" was solid. Great use of lyric sync IMO. Anyway, maybe I will surprise everyone and enter more than one next year, hehe. The editing inspiration bug hasn't worn off yet from the con, so that may be a good sign.

Actually the further I got along during the editing process I really felt like the video pacing was actually dragging the overall pacing of the video down. That's why I kind of sped up the pacing in that regard. Maybe its because I have listened to that song now 10,000 times, but I notice a lot of elements within the beat and music (especially the driving bassline), lending to a more subtle quicker rhythm. I suppose I should have relied a bit more on internal sync on the shots maybe to balance it, but in the end I am happy with the result for the most part. Thanks for the feedback though!
