Hey guys... I'm on a roll right now for Youmacon haha. This time I made a drama video mostly guided by text.

Tell me what you think so far. I'm going to work a lot more with the text, animate it a bit and make it smaller.

Damn lone, slow down. I haven't even started on any of mine yet.

it looks good to me, I'd turn down the shakiness of the film a just little bit, that's all.

I can't explain why, but I've never been a fan of having text in AMVs, so I wasnt feeling it myself

Bahhhh...I really want to get a start on my video..but I need to watch the series first x.x

Anyways I like your theme, and the editing..but the text I agree with kungfu on. I'm not feeling it. It stands out wayy too much and is taking away from enjoying the video itself. Shrink your text a bit, if you have it bold, turn it off. Dont center everything in the middle. Give it a bit of animation and have it moving from the top or bottom of the screen...this sounds stupid but heres an example.

Definitely dont copy the text style but the way she kinda animates it in...she's one of the few people i like how she does her text.

That was much more helpful than me saying " I dont like it." I agree with pretty much everything she said. It'd be alot better if it wasnt in the middle of the screen constantly

Criticism ;D ... I want to learn how to tell someone to improve their work lol.

Lone: Ohhhh it's definitely working more with the video now! Kinda gave me some chills there..i'd say mess with the text size and see what you think. But much better.

New render.. Messed with new font and some transitional fades... I need to know if you guys have time to read the text. Sometimes I feel like it goes quick.. But I can read it, although I know what it says.

Grammar error, You put "it tells you more truth then words" when it should be than. Other than that I love it and its freakin awesome. I could read everything fine, but sometimes its difficult to figure out the order of the words. Try rearranging them a little more based on how the human brain reads, left to right and top to bottom. You followed the top to bottom but not the left to right.

For example where you have the words spread out across the screen and you read them from top to bottom, consider putting them in a staircase format from the top left corner to the bottom right, and fade the words in and out one by one so theres never more than say 3 words on the screen at any one time. For some of the phrases instead of doing them all across the screen put the full sentence in the lower third (the lower third is the bottom right or left hand sides of the screen, but leave a decent amount of space below the words too, about the height of the word from the bottom of the screen is where you should place them, sorry for my film language lol), people tend to look there for words or important items on a screen, plus it will block less of the screen.

Don't do it for every phrase, but maybe the one's that begin an idea and are a little longer. One more thing, just to make your words stronger, only change the font of the phrase on the main word in the sentence, which in your case is usually the last, such as "darkness", don't change it on every word. Just some friendly ideas (my video production teacher was very picky about text) Smile

Lol wow that was a lot to read haha... Now may I a suggestion. Break up that huge paragraph on forums so its easier to read haha.

But I see what you mean.. I messed with it a bit, I'll wait to see what everyone else says about it as well before I render it again

lol its cool.. but to be honest a lot of ppl compete even if they're not going to the con... some chick in Denmark enters videos into to Youmacon all the time (and wins...annoys me greatly haha).. and obviously its hard for her to get to Detroit haha
