Best Use of Special Effects

Postby Otohiko » Sun Jan 20, 2013 2:46 am

This AMV uses effects in the most creative and effective way. The effects in this video are original, pleasing to watch, well-timed, and add to the video overall.
The Birds are using humanity in order to throw something terrifying at this green pig. And then what happens to us all later, that’s simply not important to them…

x2 The special effects in this video take the it to another level. The simplicity of the effect focuses the viewer in on the non-effect aspects of the AMV, rather than being a distraction or there for mere eye candy (in fact, this could be considered a rather non-attractive effect, in and of itself. It's just black.) That is an outstanding use of a special effect, and it's not often you see effects used this way to such great impact.

This may not be ... well... let me explain:

Image

There is so much packed into this video, and it happens and all comes together because of the effects used. But the effects aren't just surface eye candy, they make you look AT the scenes selected for use, they frame them (plus, most scenes are static), highlight certain aspects and themes among them and build up an atmosphere that matches the song and the AMV's story and drama very well. These effects may be to everyone's taste, but look at how well they were used in these contexts.

This my favorite video of Emong's, so I'm clearly biased in that regard. I don't normally like videos with effects like these, though, but this is eminently watchable to me and it's largely because I think these effects allow the AMV's concept to really be a lot more powerful than it otherwise would without them.
