Author's Commentary
Hi everyone!
Here is my video for Akross Con 2013. I originally started this video for LevelUp with Dn@ as my pro but later decided to abandon this project and I got back to it around September.

I wanted to capture the motive of femme fatale and my main goal was to bring up the atmosphere of danger and beauty.

There are like, really, A LOT of people who helped me with this video but I'd like to say 'thank you' to Kosmit, MimS, Animated and Dn@ the most.

Nothing more to say here, enjoy!

And by the way - Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!

If someone wants to see a story, one would watch a movie. There is no need of a chronological order of events to establish the viewer's grasp of the subject in a music video, just like it is the case with paintings/pictures.
I didn't read the description before watching and I had a pretty good idea of what the video is about after.

Shit..... Inazuchi I think you got your point across when the pros lasted for two sentences but the cons were written in a mini essay.... Enigmo and his genius-like perception, ha-ha. Seriously though, what grade did you get in English Literature, back in School? I love the way you made your point, extracted a quote, and analysed it. Seriously though, I too thought the video didn't convey any message properly, but that is the cast with most AMVs I see, but everyone else was posting a positive comment, and even EvilSpider said "Excellent", so I didn't want to be the party pooper, and instead just posted my latest activity.

I start every sentence with "seriously though" which must mean nothing I say is serious

Well this is certainly different, although I would like to give you some criticism; however, let's start with the pros of the video:
Very nice use of colors to establish an atmosphere, enjoyed your masks and crossovers, utilization of relatively nice effects, and timing. It was just very pleasing to look at in general, and I say that even if this is not my preferred genre.
----- The cons (or at least I'd like to address the major issue): Looking at your video, as it stands on its own, it's actually quite difficult to determine what the point of it is. Indeed, you establish some sort of atmosphere, however your intended message (yes yours, the editors, not by the viewers interpretation) is only revealed by the description you provide: That the video is meant to capitalize on "the motive of femme fatale" and, in turn, the message of the video was to establish that in certain cases a woman can be beautiful, but dangerous. My issue here is that, as I've stated, looking at the video alone you would not exactly be able to receive your intended message--and the reason for that is because you merely use an atmosphere to depict things in this video. Your video lacks a cohesive plot--you merely run through a number of scenes to show your "point" and atmosphere, and you do not actually use a story to make a greater comment about the "femme fatale". You have only achieved the first basic level of analysis. One can easily simply state "Ice cream tastes good", or in your case "Women can be beautiful, but dangerous", but where are the controls that show that? So what? The fact that you lack a story means that your point doesn't actually go anywhere greater--it doesn't achieve a grander scheme about women or human behavior. For example (not from your video), instead of simply stating "fate controls all people", in order for that point to be acknowledged as legitimate you would need some support; "It is evident that fate controls the lives of all people, based on their , , _ (insert reasons here), AND that their fate is only brought closer by ". Your video certainly lacks those reasons, and it never takes it to that next "AND" level to state something even bigger, because merely showing that "women can be beautiful but dangerous" is just way to simplistic and ineffective to stand on its own. A story of sorts to prove your point, and actually show scenarios by which there's a progression and conclusion of a woman's motives, would have made your video stand alone and people would have fully comprehended your intended message without having to read the description you gave.
You are an exceptional editor, and you definitely deserve to win your category that's no doubt. But I feel as though, if logic is actually dug into, you have lots of room for improvement to make your video pop out a lot more. Anyways, I wish you the best of luck, and I'm looking forward to more work from you!
My rating: 8.5/10.

This was better than I expected, easy drama winner. Color correction was totally successful, same with the combination of the animes, if there is some thing that I don't like is the streak flare, seemed me unnecessary, but anyway, awesome work!

10/10. Good luck :)

Remember when I told you I had a dillemma between putting a 9 or a 10? It's definitely a 10. For some weird reason fades don't look weird anymore - all I see is passion and beauty in a totally erotic way. Among the top 3 videos of the contest, for sure. That's the way to go, girl!!
