First AMV I've seen to the song. The poster for this made me think it'd be something funny and more parody-like, but it turned out more abstract. Not in a bad way though. It was more interesting than the song is.

My post today for the "Let's Get Active" campaign in General AMV! Grading Scale under spoiler.

Spoiler :
0 = Nonexistant
1-4 = Below Average. Lacking in key components that would make it an average quality.
5 = Average
6-9 = Above Average. Slightly above average, but lacking qualities that would make it something perfect.
10 = Perfect


Concept/Originality: Congratulations on continuing to make odd combinations work REALLY well. I loved this combination and thought it was really well thought out. The use of the Lain club scenes and really odd computer animations really worked well with this techno-esque song. Definitely an original type of dance video with a more serious focus than the usual upbeat/fun focus. There were some areas where I felt the concept was a bit too repeated (see editing/sync), but still overall a well executed video. 8.5/10

Editing/Sync: The primary thing that really struck through my head was the repeated use of the disco ball and the very similar looking club scenes used repeatedly for lyrical sync. I dunno. I mean, it fit the first time was was kind of clever, but seeing it repeated several times made it lose its effect. Similar to the "all eyes on us" sync which felt repeated often as well. I actually didn't see this as a comedy video though. I also want to mention that the extended scene of the DJ giving Lain could have been shortened or focused more on to make it more impactful. In terms of editing, I liked the fusion of the hard cuts and fades, and I felt like it well balanced, but there were times the hard cuts really had a staggering effect (usually when the video would transition from one type of colored dark scnee to a more brightly colored scene), but it was few. Other than that though, I thought the rest of the video was really well done creating a horror/creepy video with a fairly upbeat song, and the two sources melded really well together! I loved how there was a sub-plot (or I may have imagined this, I tend to overthink) of the techno stuff being a metaphor for the club-drug scene, which made the ending all the more impacting. 8/10

Visuals/Audio: Solid visuals and audio. No real complains in this department. 9/10

Lip Sync: Well done and it was actually really effective when you chose to use it. Actually, I felt like the first half of the video could have used more of it! 9/10

Re-View: A cool video I think I'll watch for a while. Very unique and interesting to watch and try to catch everything. 8.5/10

Overall: I dug it. There were really minor things I think it could have polished up on, but had a really unique concept to it, and it was well fleshed out. 8.5/10

With "clubby" repetitive songs like this I usually get bored and quit watching half-way but the way you edited it kept me attentive so GOLD STAR for that!~
Also another GOLD STAR for "being that amv that makes me want to watch the anime!~~"

This video makes me want to both scream and shout. However, I have yet to let it all out.

But seriously, I like it. :up:

I hate dat song. But the video was cool, because it feels sarcastic for me. I think it's because the song has a good mood - but the video doesn't and that's kind of funny. :up:

Well song is crappy, but editing is quite fine , tho bit too repetitive maybe. It kinda started to loose its power towards the end for me, still pretty well executed :up:

Yeah, it wasn't intended to be comedy, hence why I didn't flag it as comedy in the description...but I suppose the banner I chose did throw a few people off...lol

Thanks, very glad you enjoyed it! Yeah, the club stuff was recycled a bit, however there's only about 45 seconds of useable unique club footage in the series as the series itself recycles this footage. Most everyone was telling me I was crazy for attempting an upbeat Lain video, and I ended up surprising a few people by maintaining the pace of the video for 3 minutes. Also, you are not crazy, I started off with no storyline and ended up making a mini story inside of the video...unintentionally, lol!

Awesome to hear, Lain is quite the interesting series and I hope you enjoy it if you do end up watching it |:>

Haha, that is exactly how I felt about the concept when started this video :awesome:

Yeah...Lain doesn't exactly have a lot of fast paced footage so I had to make due. It definitely does trail off near the end, but I kept the pace and energy the best I could based on the limited footage I had to work with.
