What do you want from me?

   Posted by: Ami noMiko    in Music Video

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

   Posted by: Ami noMiko    in Music Video

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!

Hey look! A Friday I’m actually awake for!

Hey look!  A Friday I'm actually awake for!

No, we aren’t caught in a Groundhog Day-like loop of forever Thursdays…  I just forgot last week and spent the evening sleeping instead of posting a music video.  So, to make up for it, I bring you your weekly dose of wrong.  This week’s video is Mark It Up by Crunchy Cookie.

Why is this video awesome?

First, songs from Repo: The Genetic Opera are always awesome.  Setting them to cute woodland creatures is doubly awesome.  Round that out with superb scene choices and above-average lip synching and you have a video that I couldn’t NOT feature.  I especially love the little bit at 01:26.  *snerk*

What could be done better?

Like the other video by Crunchy Cookie that I featured, while the scene choice here is fantastic, the editing is sloppy.  The video ratio changes several times in less than two minutes.  It’s mind boggling, considering all the work that had to go into getting the timing right, that the vid author didn’t take a little more time in making sure that the scenes were all the same size.

I hope you enjoyed the music video!

It’s a cruel world…

   Posted by: Ami noMiko    in Music Video

It's a cruel world...

Okay, I’m a little late, but I say it’s still Friday until I go to bed for the night!  This week’s video is Disney Villains – Cruel World by Crunchy Cookie!

Why is this video awesome?

Since I did an anime video last week, I really wanted to feature a Disney music video today.  And while there are better edited videos out there, this was the only one I could find that was genuinely creepy.  Most “scary” Disney music videos simply use the villains without picking scenes that are actually scary, as if just having a bad guy on screen is enough (and there are lots of disturbing images in Disney, so I have NO idea why this is).  Crunchy Cookie picked the perfect song and matched it up well with villain scenes.

What could have been done better?

By the vid author’s own account this was a quick video and it shows.  The editing is a little sloppy.  There are several places where the aspect ratio of the image changes.  That’s a pet peeve of mine…  And I hate the image effects on the word “free” starting at 0:21.  If just a little bit more time had been taken to clean it up, this could have been one of the best Disney Villain music videos out there.

I hope you enjoyed the video!
