Fate/Eternal Inferno

Post by Millenium Strife » Wed Apr 02, 2008 9:51 am

It is with great pleasure that I present the public opening of studio Avalon Blade Works' (Formerly Sakuraba Mahoroba Studios) newest AMV!

<a href="http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members ... etequ8.jpg[/img]</a>

In my fourth year premiering my AMVs at Sakura-Con, this year I was the proud(read:shocked) winner of 4 awards, to include the Tsunami Jones award. I am very pleased with how the video turned out, and apparently the AMV audience at Sakura-Con felt the same as well.

Well, the hits just keep on coming! Eternal Inferno (Original) took the Best Action Award at Tekkoshokon 2008! Thanks to everyone who supported the video there!

----------------------------------------------------

Since the administration won't allow me to remove the video since I changed a good portion of it by removing the guitars, I've made another entry for the new edited version. There will always be the Sakura-Con version available too, for those of you who enjoyed that version.

Original Sakura-Con 2008 Version


New Edit Version

Some parts were very good and could keep up really well with the pace of the song. Other parts instead weren't really that good. Most of it, though, was pretty cool and indeed I liked it a lot, though I think some parts could have been better in other ways. For the audio cuts, I think they were well done besides two. I'm referring about the one at around 03:16 and the one at around 03:44 (yeah, the ones in the big interlude). I think that all in all this is a 4.5/5... a little more towards the 4.
I mostly enjoyed it, good job. :up:

I fucking loved it, the best action AMV I've seen all year but... WHY OH WHY DID YOU HAVE TO INCLUDE THE 2 BOXES SHOWING DRAGONFORCE PLAYING THEIR GUITAR-THINGY it was pretty distracting and its not like I give a damn about the band while the AMV is playing. But it's an awesome AMV so I guess I can kinda ignore it. I liked the way you synched the AMV, if you just listen to the fast background beats then I think the pacing is a bit too slow, so by the midway point I decided not to give them much attention and by doing that I really got into it, especially towards the end. Now excuse me while I hunt down the 'Unlimited Blade Works' path game and buy that Saber figurine ~_~

4.75/5 :up: :up: :up: - would have been a solid 5 from me if you took out the dragonforce boxes =D The AMV had a different feel to your previous one so it wasn't repetitive and I'll be looping the two.

I understand everyone's comments. The audio edits were hard to do smoothly and I did what I could, even for people who don't know the song, the edits were easy to pick out.

As for the additions of the live guitar playing, I can understand why that would be distracting. I've heard comments from both sides; that it was genius to use them, and that they're were fracken unnecessary. I tried to keep the action going with the main AMV while they were playing, of course. I still have a long way to go until I can fully utilize an action song with an AMV, as far as beats and scenes are concerned. I appreciate the comments.

The comments made me curious :roll:

those boxes @.@

Well I don't want to bitch about the effects you used, but for me who is unfamiliar with the source there is nothing, but the action which keeps me interested watching further into the amv. I wish there was something else though, because I got bored after minute three ... you still did an awesome job though and the effect at 3:16 was pure win :D

It was good. I was really impressed and very happy.

Then I got to 3:15, and stared at my screen wondering if you'd lost it. So fucking random and jarring. Then the guitar in the corner, adding insult to injury. It's just distracting. Yes, it's amazing fingerwork. I don't give a fuck. If I wanted to watch Dragonforce play, I'd go do that.

You know what really annoyed the hell out of me, though? The Ergo Proxy-esque text/visual overlays. I realize the 'music videos' on the DVDs are obsessed with them. That doesn't make them suck any less.

The lyric sync is an amazing feat, though. Pegasus to "So now we fly ever free" literally gives me chills. Even more impressive is that you maintained a loose flow flow of events even with this.

Overall, four of five. Ditch the guitar crap and the random pacman shot, and I'll be a very happy man. The overlays I can put up with.

It was an enjoyable action video, but I agree with other comments that starting at 3:15 things started to get ruined. The scene right at 3:15 with the 'pacman' thing was just so... =/. And the guitar playing parts really really irritated me, it would have been so much better without them imo. And near the end, at 4:41 to 4:48, the stills feel that they don't carry the action strength that the rest of your video had. The fact that the stills were just switching to the beat didn't feel very strong either. Had they maybe zoomed in, it would have felt a lot stronger.

Overall it was enjoyable though.

4/5
