Now is your chance! I've painstakingly spent 6 hours selecting clips and music, splicing them together, and checking out the finished product. As my first attempt at a music video, I didn't expect much. What did I get?
You tell me. I'll accept any criticism, any tips, any suggestions related to the music video. I do intend to make more, this was just to see how hard it was. As I am unfamiliar with YouSendIt, I hope nothing goes wrong. Feel free to share the video as you see fit. It's 42.5MB and in .WMV format. The quality is decent, and there is no annoying DIVX symbol popping up in the corner every 3 seconds (really, get rid of those mv makers). It entails clips from Piccolo fighting 17 with music by rob zombie. I'll be adding another link later today, due to bandwidth issues.
Edit: Since the link only lasts a week, you will have to ask me if you need it again. Both this and my other video are at animemusicvideos.org now, but I think it takes a week or two to get an account.

Quite an impressive video KingSpoom. For being your first attempt at creating a music video I'd have to say your editting was superb. However (and there is always a however), were this say your fifth, sixth or seventh attempt I'd have to say it lacked perscion, timing and balance. I liked the part where Piccolo began powering up to the music and how some of the attacks and characters faces moved well with the music. It needs some editting to be perfect, but all in all I liked it. I suggest using more of the fight scene spliced in to make the video follow the music. Also, don't be afraid to speed up or slow down the images to better match the music. Bravo none-the-less, and keep em' coming!

My take on this: it's a damn good thing that I have a cable modem! Anyways, I'll post with comments on the video as soon as I watch it, but I'm hopeful that it will be good...
Okay, I too liked the way the music started when he began powering up. But I didn't like how the first 40 seconds weren't much more than just that. At the one minute mark, there was a kick, and then a noise in the song. It would have been really cool if these were sync'd up. There are a few dramatic blows in the video around this spot, and it would have been cool if these were accompanied by some kind of noise in the song. I liked the sequence from about 1:15 to 1:55 (especially the last slam into the ground). When he's screaming at 2:00, it would have been better if that had been synchronized with one of the two "ahh"s in the song (there was one before and one that began while he was screaming). The scene from about 2:30-3:00 was pretty good, but could have been slightly better timed. The part where he's throwing fireballs at 3:00 is awesome. The explosion at 3:50 was also well-timed.
All-in-all, I definitely think it was a good attempt for a first try. I may have sounded like a harsh critic, but I kept pausing and commenting as I went to try to give helpful criticism as much as possible. I haven't seen too many of these videos, so I don't have a huge basis for comparison, but there is one that I have on my computer which I thought was done very well. It's FFX put together with Linkin Park. I'll upload it to the site so you can see what I'm talking about.
