Ollo!

Ollo!

Welcome to music video Friday!  This week’s treat is “Sexy and I Know It” by Tabitha78.

Why is this video awesome?

While the scene choice and pacing of this music video is awesome, what really makes it stands out is how it showcases the source material.  The humor from both the Megamind movie and the LMFAO music are definitely used to their full extent.  It’s a great advertiser for the movie.  This video was what convinced me to give Megamind a try, as I had previously dismissed it as being too juvenile from the previews.  And boy, I was wrong and this music video was right.  If you haven’t seen Megamind, go now and Netflix it, Redbox it, whatever.  Just go!

What could have been done better?

A couple of the scenes have been slowed down, such as at 0:26.  I’m not a huge fan of this effect here, especially since the scenes are so short.  Other than that, this video is pure gold!

Hope you enjoyed the music video!

What do you want from me?

What do you want from me?

Well, Fanime is just around the corner and I’m sewing my little fingers off, so let’s get right into Music Video Friday, shall we?  This week’s video is “Mocha Chino & Omar – What Do You Want From Me” by Shade.

Why is this video awesome?

This crossover doesn’t rely on the painstaking editing to make two characters from different animations show up in the same frames (for most of it, there is some of this technique used), but the editing is still fantastic.  The source movies are two totally different styles and a couple of decades apart (so Rock And Rule doesn’t look nearly as polished as either of the Goofy Movies), but Shade made them fit together with clever filtering of the backgrounds.

What could have been done better?

There is only one brief scene that spoils the illusion that these characters all came from the same source material.  At 1:15 Mocha blurs in places.  It’s probably to remove something that didn’t “fit” with the scene, but the blurring is pretty obvious.  Maybe other footage of Mocha would have worked better in that spot if it could be done cleanly.

Hope you enjoyed the video!  I’m going back to sewing!

Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker

Welcome back to music video Fridays!  So, our first music video for cross-over month is one of my absolute favorites – Heartbreaker by rotem270691.

Why is this video awesome?

The editing on this video is just superb.  The video maker took six completely unrelated animated movies, with totally different styles, and put them together so well that if you didn’t know any better, you’d think they were from the same movie.  The relationship choices are a little wacky (I certainly would never have thought of ANY of them), but this video makes them WORK.  Anya and Marina was especially inspired, I think.  And I absolutely love that Megara is used for the “I won’t be coming back alive” part.

What could have been done better?

You… got me on this one.  I’d have to stretch hard to come up with any constructive critique.  The only thing I can say is that sometimes one of the characters in a few of the scenes looks fuzzy, while the other looks in-focus with the scene.  However, this could be totally due to the quality of the source footage.  And that’s crazy nit-picking.

I hope you enjoyed the video!
