Before I Go

It's been a while, lol.
So, I decided to make something for a local AMV contest, since they usually lack entries. Paco challenged me to make a happy Anohana video, and I thought "hey why not?". But then the deadline started creeping behind my back and I ended up using too many zoom outs because everything looked boring to me.
Anyways, enjoy :D

This was awesome! it was happy, just my stupid brain and memories made it sad.
It's happy and sad ^^;

I wouldn't say you used too many zooms, a lot of the scenes are quite still, and these zoom outs made the amv "jumpier" (?) which is like... happy.

really enjoyed it.
Finally complete and up-to-date:

Well, I was having a tough time selecting the scenes because I wanted to make people forget that this anime isn't that cheerful, at least for the 3 minutes of the video. Guess I didn't quite succeed, lol.
About the zooms, a friend told me about that before I was done, so I started paying more attention to the amount of zooms I was adding and that's probably why I feel like it has too many :sweat:

Thank you! :D

That was a fun, very happy vid. I liked it. There are indeed a lot of zooms, but it never really bothered me or anything, so don't worry about that. :)

I felt like you really overused those zoom outs and blurs, I like them generally since they help pick up the pacing for slower static scenes but there were so many and some went by so quickly I had trouble following them so it made it difficult to enjoy the scenes. The editing also felt too consistent, by that I mean it felt monotonous. Like it was always the same pacing, the same feeling. There weren't really any "ups and downs" so it didn't quite flow with the mood of the song. That being said, major props for making a happy AnoHana video. I especially love how you integrated Menma into the video, like she was alive and part of them all along and not well...a ghost. It gives it a really heartwarming feeling, nice work! :up:

Thank you for the comment :) The reason behind those zooms is actually really stupid. I was unsure of what to do because the video didn't have the intensity I wanted it to have (the lack of ups and downs you mentioned), so I just started adding zooms to every clip. By the end of the video, I was cringing every time I added a new zoom because I felt I was being too repetitive. Now I know what I shouldn't do whenever I feel the same way :sweat:

But I'm glad I was able to make this anime look a bit happier than it is!
