Generic Asian Guy's Creations

I'm no graphics designer, but I do know how to use Premiere (use it like an expert? No. Know my way around the interface? Yes )

I only have one creation to "show off":

My first FMV Let me know how you think of it!

The song is "1000 Words" (Orchestra Version) by sweetbox.
The anime the clips were taken from is Byousoku 5cm Per Second.

It's well made, the song is synchronized well with the movie clips. The only problem is I think the orchestra version of the song just doesn't fit in. I can't seem to explain it well... maybe it's the echo or the opening of the orchestra version that doesn't seem right. There's a difference between the studio recording and the orchestra version, the studio recording has more clarity and is precise while the orchestra version is more open. I completely understand if you can't comprehend what I'm saying or find it to be confusing.

Overall it's well made, great job.

I sort of agree with kayos about the choice of the song. On top of that. For the video, i think more fade transitions with last piece of clip to new one would be nice and fitting for this AMV. though don't overuse it of course

It's a really nice amv. The orchestra does sound weird as mentioned above, but it's not real problem.

I'm sure I've heard this song on TV before but I just can't remember it. At least I know what it's called now. Thanks mate.
EDIT: Went to the youtube link for the AMV and I found out where I heard it before.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

I picked the orchestra version because: 1) it's 6 mins instead of 3 mins (studio version) and, 2) I think it sounds more epic (especially with the timpanis and the cymbals).

I've seen how the crossfade seems to be overused in most AMVs, and I've used it sparingly in this video. I used a "sudden cut" technique with this video because I wanted to accentuate the mood and segments of the song (I used mainly the cymbal crashes and timpani crescendos as marker points for a change in the scene).

BearShare, I'm glad to have indirectly helped you! ^_^

Thanks again for the (constructive) comments =]
