Please take 2 minutes to watch my happy/sad upbeat/downtempo silly/serious Madoka Magica AMV. I put a lot of hours into this and would appreciate any type of feedback.

Thanks for taking the time to view and for the thoughtful comment. Yes, the amount of varying emotions turned out pretty interesting here. A lot of it was influenced by the song, since it had slow then upbeat then slow pace and that kind of influenced the feel of the scenes. I also tried to capture the bi-polar nature of the show itself. With it's slice of life moments at the beginning of the series and it's serious tone towards the end.CrackTheSky wrote: ↑Fri Nov 23, 2018 7:21 pmI enjoyed it. I had a hard time deciphering what exactly I was supposed to feel while I was watching it, because it kind of ran the gamut of emotions. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but it was certainly different from what I'm used to with Madoka videos, which typically choose a specific emotion and then zero in on it hard. It was very well-edited though and I think you succeeded in making something intriguing and worth rewatching, at the very least.
One thing I did notice -- and this is my own personal taste -- but you went pretty heavy on the blur transitions throughout and I think it would have been better if you had toned down both the intensity of and frequency with which you used that specific effect. I don't think the video needed the blurs at all, but that's just imo.
Otherwise, great work
Thanks for taking the time to view and for the kind remarks. Starting this AMV I wanted to do something different; first, give it a somewhat fun and energetic feel as well as focus on the relationships between the characters, and perhaps, give it a bit of a more "mature" feel with the scene selection and transitions.Kireblue wrote: ↑Sat Nov 24, 2018 7:48 amThe easiest way to impress me is to do something that I haven't seen done in a Madoka vid before . I really enjoyed this one and immediately added it to my archive. You did a great job on the pace of your vid, and I really liked a lot of the match cuts that you did. I also liked the really cool effect that you did with Charlotte at 0:50, and the dancing transition you did at 0:29. Nice Job
Thanks for taking the time to view and comment. I'm happy you thought it mixed well enough and found it decent.
