Audio/Visual: I thought that your contrast/exposure was a bit too much. It made the majority of the scenes look overexposed and washed out. Parts were too dark and other parts of the scene were too bright. I see what you were trying to do. Contrast can be effective for mood, but I think if you turned the setting down in half it would be much easier to watch, and you’d accomplish your same intent. I did like your color corrections and the color hues you chose. It gave the work a personal touch.

The song was a good fit for the AMV. It had a good balance of slow and fast tempo parts, and fitting lyrics. Some of the scenes, however, visually felt a bit static. Like at 2:17 – 2:24. I think if you added a slow zoom or camera pan too them it would make it more dynamic. Not an extreme zoom or pan, around the 5 percent range.

Synchronization: The sync was good for the most part. You matched the high tempo parts with higher intensity scenes, and the lower tempo parts of slower scenes. There were scenes that I feel linger a bit too long and could have been more tightly cut. There was also lip flap scattered throughout the video that didn’t sync to the lyrics and therefore can distract the viewer. Something that doesn’t bother me but does bother others.

Story/Theme: I thought you did a good job organizing the clips together to match the song and convey to the viewer your interpretation of the anime characters and their conflicts. I do feel that only people who watched the anime would understand why you paired certain scenes together with certain lyrics, like at 0:56 to 1:37.

Overall, I thought this was an interesting AMV. The video felt like a mix of action, drama, and character profile. Nice job.
