Video 1: Ahah I just knew someone would do this! Anyway, although your video was funny I don't think the crossover was that successful? Some of your transitions need work and you could have taken a bit of time to make the sources blend a bit more, with color correction, etc. Concept wise, well you picked a trailer so you're storyline is given to you on a plate... I'm not sure that was safe ;_;
Video 2: You know I like your video, but while watching it I had the feeling that you started with time but at the end you totally rushed it. And seriously, who am I to judge lack of time on a contest like this? I like your story and I think it's an interesting view from the tale. One thing that got a bit confusing around the middle... you jumped from (oh god I'm sorry but I'm really bad with names lol) the POV of the blue hair girl to the red hair girl, though the song keeps still feels like it's from the "sleeping beauty" POV, get it? But that's a minor detail, though to follow the story it got a bit confusing imo. The ending was a bit too sudden! You could have ended the fight with an explosion or something and then when all turns white she wokes up, slowwwwwwwly. It was too fast, so you missed that fairytale cheesy feeling ;p
Video 3: Your video is pretty cool and I like the idea! You named it "Consequences", but what about those that don't know the tale? Peter told 3 lies and that's why no one comes to save him from the wolf when it's real deal. So your viewers only know that well if you see a wolf and don't run fast enough, he will eat you. Not the real moral of the story, which is, you must not tell lies, etc etc. And you could have solved this easily! You could have picked another song, a more playful happy one, show some pretty scenes of the fields and show some happy people and while you're doing this you tell the story with text OR (and this would have been really cool) have someone on the background telling the story (ask a friend or something). That would have given you the fable feeling, then you could have ended that whole introduction with Peter laughing (because doing pranks is funny for me). And then your video comes in!
Video 4: I'm absolutely loved this! One of my favorites until now. The editing is good, I can connect the story with the fairytale, the song is just beautiful (oh I know this shouldn't be a reason but it's just so pretty!). I only watched like 2 episodes of this anime (sadly I know), so I got a bit confused at why you used two different girls for this. So I would kinda exclude the scenes from the short hair girl and focus only on the long hair one. I also think your "memories" were a bit too colorful and that could be confusing too, because well she's sleeping! lol
Video 5: LOVE THIS ONE! Seriously, my eyes were stuck on this video the entire time! Really enjoyed it! And ahah I can see you had some fun editing this and trying to match the girls to the fables. Great one
Video 6: You know, this seems like a beta to a great video. I love the concept, and I haven't seen the movie Snow White and The Huntsman, but it sure reminded me of it! So I think it has the same feeling, which is awesome. I love the fable feeling that your introduction and the text gave (check dafont.com for a more eligible and pretty font!). You need to work on the transitions, add some pans and zooms. ALSO, I think you're missing some emotional scenes, leave the climax of the song for the fights. Your ending was tooooooooo abrupt and I didn't really understand. My advice, because I think this would be a very cool video, is to come back to this idea after the contest is over. I think it could turn into a very enjoyable video and one thing I learned with POE is that you can get some really cool ideas from it
so come back to it when you have more time!
Video 7: WHAT there was no kisssss! Ahah sorry ;p but your video made me ship them. lol. Anyway! It was a bit confusing at first to identify the beauty? But then it got clear. Then it was a bit confusing to understand what were memories, what was the present, just... I dunno, but since I never watched the anime I couldn't pick that up. To be honest, when he saved her and got back to being human I thought it was the ending of your video? I got the feeling that you wanted to tell us all of their story, BUT remember that's not really following the theme for this. Sure, you have a song that might fit the anime and you have a beast and a beauty. But it's likely that the story of your anime won't fit the fable, so YOU must be the one to tell us and make that scene selection. Doesn't matter if you jump from episode to episode, just that the viewer (even if it's someone who already watched the anime) can see the story you're trying to tell us.
Video 8: Ugh I feel bad for not knowing this fable ;_;... Editing wise I loved it, I think it's a very powerful video. And what I got was that all that war and weapons and stuff turned people and things into mutations (and zombies, I believe I saw zombies!). That was it lol. I think the ending was a bit too sudden!
Video 9: !!! Let's start with the bad stuff. Editing wise, it could be better, but yes well a week! I know, I know *pats*. I think that using that font kinda let me down (I'M SORRY, I'M A DESIGNER AND I CAN'T HELP IT!
) and the effects on the text. Though, ahah, funny thing is... when I learned that effect I couldn't stop using it (sadly I got videos that can prove that lol), so I get it! But no, no, don't. ;p The same for the overlay texture you used... Not really a fan of it. And now for the good stuff... This is my favorite video concept wise. There's too many good things to say, first the fact that you dismissed the story practically everyone knows from Disney. You told us the real story with the sad ending (except that Makoto is a girl and on the real story it's a boy, doesn't matter!). Also THE FOX! The fact that it's a fox and not a mermaid... I loved that! That shows that you really thought this through and that's what the idea of this contest is. To go further than what it is expected! Also, your story was very solid! Good job!
) plenty of feels! I think if you work on this a bit more, you can submit it to a con for sure!
