Go.
It is a video.
It is one that I had to do.
I just couldn't not do it.
It was done with a purpose.
It was done for a reason.
Its message had to be said.
In the end.
After all is said and done.
It all makes sense.
Go.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So yeah, Go is a video I originally started working on for AWA's Professional contest this year. There has been a lot of work done to it since then in order to make the video what I wanted it to be. Give it a watch. And for those of you interested, there is a textless version as well as the AWA version available on my distro site.

By not agreeing with the words, are you meaning the interpretation of them, the way they were done, or that they existed at all?

.. quite possibly .. too long !???
nice timing on the words ^__^
but I felt like I was watching a slideshow.

idea: sometimes, when you run out of moving/flowing scenes,
it is better to have them "fade" into the next scene -- rather
than just cutting from one jump to the next ^__^ - - just an idea :sweat:

That was good it didn't amaze me. I agree with post-it it was kinda like a slide show. I'm looking forward to your next vid! :D

Even with the extended length, this still didn't feel that long. I liked the director's cut a lot better than the version you had for AWA pro. I still don't care much for the text, but it bugged me a lot less in this version.

I didn't exactly run out of footage, to the contrary I had a lot more footage then I had time for. The style of the video, using jump cuts, was used to tell the story of how the character gets from point to point in the story arch of the video. I don't feel that using fading would have worked well in the video, which is why I didn't use many crossfades and rather used hard cuts. The fades would have made the video feel too smooth, and I wanted it to feel jarring. The video's story is of inner turmoil which is something I wouldn't describe as smooth. It's a nice idea, but the idea I don't think would have fit with the music and invoke the proper feelings.

I'm not sure looking forward to my next video is a good thing or not....

I always expected there to be contention with the text, and with my vision for the video requiring the text to be in some ways a little unsettling and not subtle, many other editors would find problems with it as I would be breaking one of the many 'rules' of AMV making by drawing your attention away from the video underneath. I also know many people have personal preferences (of course in the case of a few of my beta testers, more like prejudices) regarding text and don't like any video using it. Hence the textless version. I really do wish I would have had the time to complete this director's cut in time for Pro, but it is what it is. For me the video honestly feel quite short. But I'm used to listening to music that often is upwards of 10+ mins long so I have a hard time really judging what is too long and what not.

Either way, I do appreciate the comments.

very nice, I enjoyed every bit of it. I love that you stuck with an old style and great selection. The texts felt as if the wind was blowing them, very nice.

Interesting interpretation for the movement of the text. Not how I had originally envisioned it, but it works. Thanks.
