Symbolism. The shape in the video symbolizes movement, flow, and change. Often we find ourselves searching for "something". We're never satisfied. And as editors, we're often hard on ourselves and sometimes on others because of our own expectations. We set goals in search of some kind of way to make ourselves feel validated. The goals that we have set our sights on can often get lost along the way. One day we'll look in one place, the next day in another, becoming this endless loop. Sometimes what we're searching for is closer than we think. Who knows, whatever it is we're searching for could be right under our nose.

Special Thanks to all my friends and huge shoutout to Gorz and Neverend. Anyway, hope you can enjoy :)

I find it hard to "review" videos that are fundamentally distinct from the ones I make myself, but I think this video has a neat idea and plenty of technical effort behind, so I'll share my thoughts on it.

I won't talk much about the concept itself because there's not much I can say besides, I think it's nice, even if I wouldn't relate the video to what you say in the description if I hadn't read it, I won't pretend to fully understand it, even after reading the comments before mine, but maybe it's simpler than I think and I'm looking too much into it.

The visuals are very pleasant, the echo/trail effects in the intro give an adequate dreamy feel to that segment, the color grading is pretty cool and the occasional use of lens blur to create depth of field also looks quite nice, the twixtor isn't a problem for the most part but it does act out in some parts, and I can't really tell why cuz they are rather static so it shouldn't be a problem for the plugin.

I feel the segments right after the drop could have a little more energy, the execution of the drop itself is good, even if the build up could use more of a visual feedback, but the intensity of the song has a considerable peak even if it retains the chill atmosphere, for example the guy turning at 1:21, only the first transition to another background is synced, the other two following it just happen without any sound cue which is a shame because I think that was a pivotal scene to clearly set the pace of the song after the drop. The 1:38 and the scene after it feel uncomfortably static compared to the rest of the video, even if you animated the focal point to make it more alive, I kinda understand why, it's too clearly show what is on the paper, but it feels odd.

A lot of the cooler rhythms like, for example, the background beats from 1:39 and onwards were neglected, of course changing scenes every beat would not suit this video at all, but maybe adding a subtle effect to match the pinkish-purple 80's neon far cry blood dragon vaporwave aesthetics, as long as it wasn't too distracting, because it would make it feel way more dynamic and entertaining to watch if the video was more tied to the song, but syncing to such an extent was surely not the focal point and I'm just imposing my own preferences on your creation so lol.

Overall, I like it, it's a good video, even if it doesn't fancy my personal taste I can still appreciate the idea and the effort to make it come true, it's clear that you're a very good editor, and I do think it will be in the top 5 of this Akross.

D&D did cross my mind while making the AMV :laugh: it was actually inspired by the album logo. Thank you for your thoughts!

I kept thinking that the characters were obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons and had D20s on their mind. Was hoping the beat would drop and we'd get some fantasy fight sequences and the result of a nat 20 or even a nat 1 or something.

Joke aside, the strengths seemed to be the subtelty of motion and aesthetic composition of the scenes. Its got that artsy vibe, but like the character in the video I couldn't tell why or what we're grasping for other then the general sense of wanting. Pacing and sync were ok, established what it would be doing after the initial 30-40 seconds which seemed ok, but I would have liked more of a roller coaster ride to differentiate the sections more with a give and take of the lyrics. I loved the dramatic hold type scenes and the sync on those pop sounds like the scenes at 1:47 or the hands at 1:54 or eyes at 2:18.

The ending felt empty to me since he finally gets there and then its a fast montage of past scenes representing his longing but still have no idea why he was longing in the first place, what it is that he thinks he might have now or obtained, or why we even followed him. Why is this personal journey suddenly so public with all these shots of people and the news, where were they before? I guess it fits you're description that we're all never satisfied, he gets to the payoff, but we don't really get the payoff. I think there's a bit of an abstract trap that we've fallen into here and agree a lot with ThalesEditions post about the symbolism. Its there, its abstract, but no real indication of what it means other then the lead character is obsessed with it.

Overall nice presentation, you got some nice technical skills and a lot of potential. I'm interested to see what else you come up with.

:sad: High Visual Technical, but low concept and harmony with video/music.
I just watched the movie in this AMV, the difference here is the girl is with a cube in her head.

This "concept" try to justify the random cube effect, and.. in the end this makes no sense, once the boy found the girl, she keeps the cube in her head and suddenly a giant cube appears (but it shows that every single human is searching for something), the boy found the girl, but he saw the giant cube too, and her saw it too = no sense.

Yeah, symbolism was just a justification for show the author technique with 3D and visual. Ok, nice, but it clearly doesn't deserve first place, there are a lot of better videos here, such as Delusion, Quintessence, Moonlight, Blood Tears and others. I think people is making a lot of drama calling this the first place.

приятно,что много качественных клипов под конец кона подьехало.Добротная работа,для меня на 8 так.

Хороший концептульный клип, по уровню исполнения вполне мог быть и официальным. Техника чистенькая, всё смотрится как тут и было :smile:
Мне совсем не зашло из-за скучного трека.
