- Cosmic Gate Under your spell
This is my first AMV I spend more than a couple hours edit time. I got the idea while listening to the song by Cosmic Gate. The main idea was to get some space footage with crazy tracking shots combined with Sankarea and Tasogare Otome x Amnesia which fit perfectly in the concept in my opinion. The second idea was to construct a feeling of a spell, so I started to experiment with colors and masks. The third concept idea was to create a feeling of interacting with the audience, so I tried to take szenes where the protagonist looks right to the audience. I divided the AMV in a part with cold colors and a part with warm colors. After cleaning up my footage (there were many credit scenes, which I covered with masks or fx tricks) I decided to remove some lyric text, which I integrated before, because some beta testers said, it would look better without it.
While editing I've learned lots of things, like how to use transitions, lip-sync, masking, coloring, scene selection and lots of other stuff.
My goal was to create an AMV nobody did in this way before and I think I could reach it. ^^
Time spend for editing: 2 Months (don't know how much hours)
