(spike's voice) NNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
my computer crashed like a B-52 over Berlin, i lost nearly 100gigs of info. I'm rebuilding piece by piece, but i'm done, not to mention my company with the National Guard has been tagged for Deployment. I'm backing away from not only this but a lot of online stuff because I no longer have any amount of time between work, medical documentation, paper work, and my responsibilities with the National Guard. I'm sorry guys, Deuces to the nooses, it's been a time and a half..
flashback...oh yes, i got this. count me in and clear a path.
@kirn and i thought i was harsh
NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! (insert spikes voice)
Zombie Love Song by @break
Synchronization(5/10): The intent is understood for the most part, but lip flaps, and scene changes that tend to lose track of what's going on really bring this down
Rendering(9/10): very fluid and consistent throughout, i only saw a few moments of being overpixelized. great job :)
Theme Representation(3/10): this is going to be difficult Having never seen this anime, how are they zombies? who is the main focus on, the two from the beginning? the the guy with cat hair and the maid? there also seemed to be far more violence, and emphasis on fighting, than showing how characters are related or even in love. there are some nice scenes in here like the beginning, and when neko hair guy wakes up, but they are too few and far in between. it didn't really establish anything.
Originality(5/10) I've never seen the anime, but MY FAVORITE MARTIAN SQUEEEE!!!! oh god i man squee'd shudders outside of those two things, it's fairly average
total (22/40) sorry...
Your Hand In Mine by @kosukechan
Synchronization(10/10): without any words you had to rely on only the music, an easier thing to do, but you did alot with so little and it turned out fantastic.
Rendering(10/10): there were only a few tiny patches of pixels that had shown threw, but that aside mangasm
Theme Representation(9/10):NOT A SINGLE WORD was needed at all. this simplistic approach did you wonders, and it truly got across that these two women grew up with each other and grew to love each other on a deeper level. I ONLY wish that there was a larger payoff at the end, an actual kiss, an embrace then fade to black. there was all this great build up that fell short. sigh
Originality(10/10) So far no one has had made an instrumental amv, and this is truly something to behold, and a band that could literally be from anywhere in the world, and sound this beautiful. man if i had entered, i don't think i would have won
total (39/40) "I'm fing pissed, that i can't be fing pissed at this song, i need something to nag at" -Spoony
Mr. Gloom & Doom by @n1xx
Synchronization(9/10): ALMOST ALL OF THE CUT INS AND OUTS WERE TIMED VERY WELL (caps, and i'm lazy) just more than once i thought the cuts worked agaisnt the video, but not much
Rendering(10/10): it was stable, and i didn't notice pixels or anything really out of place. nice work.
Theme Representation(5/10): I got lost. it seemed to focus on two different couples at points, the guy and the cute demon kinda girl, then the SD boy and girl, and then back to the first two. And, once again, the focus reallly seemed to be on fighting instead of focusing on why those four are really taboo at all, the boy and the cute girl i guessed were sworn enemies, but that's a guess. the SD couple seemed unnesasary altogether.
Originality(7/10): I don't know, once again, the anime or the song so points given for that. But, once again, this just seemed average even for entries for this contest. the one thing i can say is that the SD couple is new, so there's that.
total (31/40): By all accounts a very good entry, the strength of it is by far the technical aspects of it, but the focus is not altogether there
Online Love by @Lotto
Synchronization(9/10):the timing was more for strikes, and combat, then musical ques. but with such a minimalistic song that really worked for te amv than against it
Rendering(10/10): not a problem here
Theme Representation(3/10): well crap. once again the focus is fighting, and while i can quite easily tell that these two are friends, that's all i get from this. No focus on love what so ever. i Hate saying this because for being short and sweet it worked, but i would have never have known these two were in love if i hadn't known about this contest.
Originality(5/10): like i've said numerous times before, the combat was the focus. but the short runtime, and the fact that this was an MMO brought back nostalgia of an anime i watched a long time ago (can't remember the name) but this was not bad by any means
total (27/40):again the technical aspects of this anime carried it, but there was not enough meat to it.
final thoughts: 3/4 were more about fighting than love and as much as that makes me rage all the entries were darn good. be proud my people, and look forward to the next contest. for I shall return...
@N1xxno, other people should not be encumbered because of me. I'll gladly take a judging role tho. and i would love to propose a possible theme for the next contest "BLOOD" i think it stands for itself.
as for the 6 minute length issue, that's not an issue, and it was my choice to make it that long. And, personally, i think 6 minutes is a decent max length. much longer than that would be ludicrous
i need to pull out of this, my AMV was really ambitious, rather long more, than 6:00, and i have a two week commitment comming up, legally i can't say what, but that's a thing. and I'll be gone during the end, and i have no time between now and when i leave.
@break, do not get discouraged, i will still make it. and i will site you in it♥
@Nixx i will return shortly after the 17th, and if you need a judge, I'm open
@break, you might like this...that little teaser i made for my AMV entry is for a German song, so I'm voicing a new story to coincide with the anime Higurashi. IN GERMAN!! it's pretty much an abridged AMV, and i'm doing this because my last 2 were impossible for you to see, and i like yur face♥
@Kosukechan it kinda felt like how i would have handled the show, but the wordless aspect left a lot to be desired. there's still time, throw in a narrative PLZ!!
Song Du Riechst so gut
just to let you all know, this does NOT count as my entry, just wanting so see who can see it, and if it stays up. enjoy
