ISML 2009 Double Elimination - Championship Match - AMV V3

Post by ARTA8SIMS » Mon Nov 02, 2009 10:32 am

Not sure if this is the right place to make this post........
ISML 2009 Double Elimination - Championship Match - AMV, created by myself. Sorry about the quality, this is my 1st AMV and I kinda rushing it a bit. I got the idea today at lunch time AEST 1:00pm and by the time I got all the clips I needed is AEST 5:00pm then I spent 3hrs putting it together. Well, hope you'll like it. Please make some suggestions, comments, complaints anything that can help me improve next time. :biggrin:

PS: This is now Release #3, 720P release, fixed some timing issues, increase images quality, improved background, increased music fading out time and added + removed some clips.



Enjoy.

Yeah, it's pretty good, although I think the battle scene with Hina versus the dark butler is inappropriate as the ISML movies should always have scenes of the candidates by theirselves, as well as the scene with Shana and the subs. Maybe you can replace the subbed part with the a scene that's raw, and the battle scene with Hina with a scene focussing solely on Hina by herself (preferably a cute one XD). Given that you made it within 3 hours, I'd say it suffices. Thanks for da vid~

Thanks man, I would like to but problem is the lack of resourses I got.......... well..... maybe next time. I can't really do much with the shana 1 because everything is rmvb for some strange reasons. I have to use Shana S. Again, I had the idea of making an amv like 9hrs ago then by the time everything planned out its like almost 6pm :{ Will do a quick edit, version 2 should be up in an hour, thanks for the comments. =)

[ Topic moved with a redirect left in the DE forum. ]

I missed viewing V1, but based on the comments, I will agree that V2 is a much better production. ^_^

For work on short notice, this is really great, and I enjoyed the pacing. I believe we can get this linked on the main page; more on that later.

You requested critiques, so my comments: :)
  1. There was too much black (dead time) in the opening. I know you were waiting for the musical cue, which is great, but something more to fill in the time would keep the suspense going. You started it well with "the time has come" but maybe it faded away too early. Or if the background could be some scenery ... i.e. empty field or night time or stars or space, to kinda keep us guessing as to what will come when the downbeat occurs.
  2. You said you were short on video resources, and it does show in the AMV. Shana's running scene felt a second or two longer than it needed to be. Hina's singing scene felt a little long (compared to the rest at least), too. And Shana overall had maybe 5-10 seconds more screentime in the AMV than Hina.
  3. I wouldn't remove any scene completely, though. All your choices were great; some had action while others had true moe appeal, so it's good to show all the best sides of the characters.
  4. I enjoyed the song choice. At the very end of the video, adding a fadeout would help rather than cutting it off.
  5. At the start, when you wrote in Hinagiku's and Shana's names, the font is okay, but doing some beveling/embossing or adding a border or increasing their size might help visibility. Kind of like how you put a border around "championship match" to make it easier to see. If that's hard to do in the movie program, you can make the text as an image and embed it similar to how you added the ISML logo.
Do update me if a V3 is finished! :D Again, this is great work!

I have 1.5hrs before everything starts. I'll give it a shot see what will happen, from V1 - V2 took me about an hr, not sure how this will turn out. For V1 you can check out my channel, it's still there.

BRB I'll be updating this soon.

Definately an improvement from V1, but I have to agree with Crisu bout Hina having less screen time than Shana. Pop in one more scene of her and it'll be awesome (not that it isn't awesome already), because at the end of the video, the music is cut short. Should just let it run for a few more seconds (the Hina scene).

You're on the front page now. :) Great job.

If it changes again, I'll be happy to update the video with a V4. If there's going to be a rematch on Thursday, that video will be there for a few days.

Actually, this is not really that bad at all, factoring in how much time you were given to make something like this. Of course, I could make some of my usual criticisms and such (many staff members will tell you that I'm a very harsh critic), but this is especially extraordinarily done, and I don't think you could have done better within less than 48 or so hours unless you were some kind of superfreak. Good job.

Just wnat to ask what program do you guys use for AMV..... Movie maker + Photoshop don't think is a good combo.
