1. Place @ AniNite AMV Challenge 2010
.:ADVICE:. Listen to it with headphones for the full enjoyment of the song!
I didn't thought that this video will be that successful and such a crowd pleaser. Maybe it's just me and I don't have enough distance to my own work again. However I can say that I'm very pleased with this video even if there are quite a lot compromises in the video to not violate the amv challenge.
.:Speaking about the challenge:.
The AniNite AMV challenge is a quite unique concept. You register, get 3 categories to choose, you pick one tricky theme and you work on it. I took the classical challenge. I had to mix one classic song to anime. The catch was that there should be no humans at all in the video. This was quite hard for the storyline.
It's not hard to get it. Mankind is almost gone. There is nothing but a barren wasteland with ruins and a melancholic landscape. You only get one scene that tells you what could have happened. Anyway! Someone gets a strong idea and works it out. You see how it grows and gets stronger and how it finally gets worked out in a wonderful musical part. He build up an android to bring this wasteland back to life. Rebirth of mankind? No. Probably the rise of the post human androids.
It's quite simple, but very effective mood sync. This builds up on heavy atmosphere and the sync is very fine, but yet precise at important points. It took me around 2 weeks to make this video and I'm glad how this turned out! The colours are not really black and white. They are very dark blue and white. Gives it a more unique charme compared to simple b&w. The grain is alright and gives the video extra depth. Though you won't notice it in the streaming video edition.
Premiere Pro CS5 fucked up a lot of crossfades. It really took me a long time to figure out on how to fix it. >_>
Have fun watching it!
