I started this AMV 5 months ago, but I couldn't finish it by then without inspiration. When I realized that my friend's birthday was coming, I decided that maybe it would be a good gift for her.

About editing, I would have liked to do something with greater impact... But leaving that aside, I'm happy with the result of one of the longest AMV I've ever done.

Great Job! Your editing was solid, and I really liked all your choices in panning/ movement for your scenes. You also did a good job at showing off how beautiful and well animated your source was. My only complaints were when you cut and faded completely to black at parts. I personally feel that fading completely to black is almost always jarring unless it's at the end of the video. Instead, I always personally recommend that people "cross fade to black" so that you still get the effect of a fading to black, but without ever going completely black. If you don't know what I mean by this, here is an example image
Spoiler :
The fade out of scene 1 one starts on frame 3 and doesn't finish till frame 8. But by that time, scene 2 has already started fading in at frame 6. And so there's never a point where the screen is completely black

I'm glad you like it! I also thank you for sharing with me what you think about completely fade black screen. I think you're right, I had not given much importance until now, but I really think I could have been much better if i would did it like you show me in that screenshot.
Electronic music can be somewhat difficult to handle when using an edition as raw as mine. It is because of this that I am learning to use programs like Adobe After Effects to expand my skills and show an evolution in my edition.

I hope to receive more constructive comments that will help me improve in the future, just as you have done.
