Gunslinger Girl - Tactical Dominance

Post by vkamv » Mon Oct 08, 2018 10:13 am




I've been working on this AMV off and on for the past year. This song has been used by other AMVs as well, but when I heard it, I just finished watching Gunslinger Girl anime and thought that it would fit it, and therefore, this AMV was created.

Making it was an interesting experience. Perhaps in a year or two as my editing skills grow I'll re-do it since it's not quite how I envisioned it.

It's a short video. Sometimes an AMV needs to be short. Any longer and it would become redundant in my opinion.

Hope you find it entertaining.

Hmm pretty mixed feelings about it, for me. Beginning is fine but the skips feels a bit too harsh. I guess song calls for fast cuts but i it was me i would have gone into some overlays (just no flasherino for the drums) or something to try to balnce the stuff out. I guess it might be beacue you flop between various characters too much , but it kinda fills the shoes of action i guess :P.
Still better than that MMO.

Thanks for taking the time to view and the constructive feedback. Due to the length and style of the song I always felt this should be viewed more akin to a trailer or teaser than a full fledged AMV. Therefore, when making it, I didn't pay too much attention to the fact that it was random because in a sense it was supposed to be. My focus wasn't the scenes themselves but how well they synced with the beat and the type of impact I thought they gave. I did try to introduce the characters earlier on to give it a sort of sense of plot or narrative.

I'll keep your comments in mind when I decide to redo this work. :)
