Hello AKROSS! This is Mr.Memory from China. It’s my first time to take part in a video competition and it’s also my first attempt to make a crossover.
My love for AMV and MAD first appeared after I saw reAct’s third chapter: A psalm for kings in February 2015. At that time I was in Grade 8 and I started by making 4 or 5 videos only using Vegas. I got to know AMVs better and saw Umika’s videos for the first time in June. They inspired me a lot and the idea of making a crossover arisen in my mind. I wanted to make high quality videos, using more than just simple edits, so I started to learn software like After Effects and Premiere.
After I entered Grade 9 in September 2015, I had to prepare for the graduation test of junior school (which we call Zhongkao in China), so I didn’t have time to make videos. Over the year of Grade 9, I created my storyboard, searched for anime and music clips, and watched a lot of tutorials. I also got advice and encouragement from reAct.
The last semester of Grade 9 started at this years’ February 16th, the same day as Umika’s funeral. I cried and had a much stronger urge of making the crossover I planned. I got a good score in the graduation test and successfully received the offer of high school in July. Afterwards I went straight to Shenzhen to meet reAct in person. We had a lot of fun and discussed my crossover and AMVs deeply. In August I did more research and found inspiration from Umika’s “Sincerity”, Darkcat’s “Crossing” and Kunqu’s tutorials. By the time high school started in September I had finished all the preparation work and started to make the AMV.
“Another” was the first anime I watched, it feels good to look back in time and be myself. In the past few months, a lot of authors and friends helped me and gave me advice during the making of this video, especially reAct. I am very excited to enter this contest as a Chinese and compete against contestants from all over the world. I want to thank everyone who helped me and also to you for taking your time to read this and support my AMV!

Липсинк на 02:40 эпичен.
В остальном плюсую NIGHT'a , добавить нечего.

Кое-какие технические косяки есть - странноватый твикстер, слишком много врезанных в видеоряд слов, ненужное ''3D-размазывание'' в районе 01:50, блендинг в конце.

Но в принципе клип неплохой, смотреть можно.

I believe attempting to achieve something is better than doing nothing. I can't change your point of view, but I can certainly change my way of making videos.

Nice twixtor m8. If you don't know how to use it then don't. 1/10

Thanks for the approval! Most of the color tones was made by using solid layers and adjustment layers in After Effects. Changing the main tones was a creation I came up in mind at the start of making this video. I think the final result wasn't too bad, but it can absolutely be refined more. In future projects, I'll make the tones more unified. After I have gathered enough experiences I'll try my creations again. :smile:

I can definitely see the author's effort from the AMV, and generally this is quite nice, the flow of the story is okay although those FX and the choice of color tone could be refined better.

Well done and wish you good luck in the contest. :wink:

Thanks for taking your time to read my commentary and comments! I’m moved to see someone evaluate my video so detailed. That image you posted was intentional to work as a transition. During the making of the video I applied different input frame rate values for individual scenes to get the smoothest effect. The final result wasn’t as good as I expected. Some editors and friends suggested me to delete this effect and just use the original speed of footages, but I still insisted on using twixtor to make the footages slow and smooth to fit with the music.

Although teen-drama-crossovers are starting to get a little stale at this point, as I personally felt a sense of deja vu throughout the whole video, I can clearly tell that quite alot of effort was put into this and that is indeed praiseworthy.

I don't think this video benefited from the use of motion interpolation at all, as most scenes don't justify it's use and the interpolation artifacts are very distracting, deleting the repeated frames OR setting the correct input frame rate for twixtor (usually 23,976/2 or 23,976/3 but it could vary even in the same scene) should do the trick and avoid the constant stuttering.
Also consider not using interpolation over a segment where scenes change or this (the gif below) happens (this could have been intentional to work as a transition..?)

Yes some effects feel overdone and uncalled for, this isn't a bad video but it's not great either, I suspect you have tons of potential but I just can't judge it properly because I find it hard to enjoy, maybe due to my personal preferences. But as you said in previous replies, " More will be improved in the future! ", so good luck in the contest and on future projects.

Yeah, Idid notice the blur effects was kind of overused in the first minute of the video. The making of the clock scenes did took a lot of time. They were made by only using shape layers in After Effects. My project files were destroyed in the middle of making the clock sceen because of power failure. It took a whole week for me to remake the clock sceen. But this final version added a lot more details than the one before. Thanks for liking it! :smile:

Hi PikaPika! It’s great to see you in the comments section.我觉得特效用的多余这一评论不太恰当,不如说我的特效没能与剪辑很好的磨合在一起。作为首次比赛我自己还挺满足的。前面的补帧特效有的作者赞成有的作者反对。我自己思考很久后还是决定使用这一特效来契合前期舒缓的背景音乐。后面的一些静止系分镜以及时钟特效是为了与作品照应才做的。时钟分镜花费的时间精力较多。最后时钟倒转并破碎一方面与回忆片段对应,另一方面象征男女主的关系的彻底破碎。但总之非常感谢你的评论!以后还会做下去,参加更多比赛,当然也会不断进步的。Thanks! :smile:

Many unnecessary effects :sad: 5/10
