Entry 04: INSOMNIA
Decscription:
Spoiler:
Summary:
The title of the video is INSOMNIA. It's a psychological thriller teaser trailer (boy, that's a mouthful)

This is a story about a woman who, ever since her accident, has been witnessing things in her sleep. Eventually, her friends start disappearing one by one. Disturbing photographs of them appeared everywhere she goes, even when she closes her eyes, haunting her.

Were the visions and her friends' disappearance related? She has no idea what is going on but she can sense their presence, telling her that she's next.

Making the video:
I used Sony Vegas Pro to edit the video and Audacity to edit and mix the songs.

Footages used:
- video: ourselves, is this Love?, Days, BALLAD
- audio: GUILTY, insomnia
Stream: Entry 04

Entry 05: De diē Iudicii
Description:
Spoiler:
Name: De diē Iudicii [latin for "The Judgement Day"]
Song used: The Judgement Day
Other Ayu material: The video features lyrics of "Mirror" in the beginning.
Type of video: Anime Music Video
Anime used: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Program used: PowerDirector 9.0
Editing time: ~16 hours
Brief summary/making off/etc.:

As the song I used is interlude, I hadn't any lyrics to worry about. Instead, I paid extra careful attention to the whole feeling of the song, and all the different layers of it. To give a sense of rhythm, I did my best to listen to the "rumble sounds" in the beginning and the drum beat in the background.

The video itself is quite abstract, and since Judgement Day is a song that actually kinda "lingers" a long time, until briefly "explodes" into its entirety, you can't build up a whole story in it. However, I used the lyrics of "Mirror" and couple of sentences in the end to balance this, so please read all the texts carefully~ [You might want to pause when you read, I had to edit them to appear quickly] So in the end, it does contain a little story.
Judgement Day builds up speed quickly when in its entirety, and sadly in this part [especially during 0:59~1:10] I had to use some clips that might feel kinda out of context. [However, I wanted to include all the main characters of the anime so] The speed during this part is no more than about fifth of one single second, so I guess you understand why : D

Of course for those who have watched the anime itself will get better what's going on, but when you pay attention to the video, I hope you are able to make out some kind of conclusion :3

The video uses a special font, a same one that its used in the anime to desprict parts of Goethe's "Faust" book among other things.

It was really enjoyful to make this! ^_^

I hope you'll enjoy my video, I made it almost 20hours!

I have always loved loved loved the song Replace and I wanted to make a video that represents Ayu's words. It's a happy video concentrating on the AyuxFans relationship. I hope this movie will arouse some smiles.
It was made with AVS Video Editor that didn't quite cooperate with me but after some troubleshooting this final result came up.

It's because the video was previously released.

Entry 7. No offense, but Insomnia is very confusing without reading the description, and movie trailers always tell you enough so that you know what it's about. Without the description, you'd have no clue. Nice editing though.

Some things I would like to say to entry 04: nice editing skills and nice idea. However, I was a bit disappointed that the trailer was so short. Maybe, if you have some spare time, you could do a "full" version of it? :3 At least I would like to see it~ The biggest problem with the video is that if you don't read the description it doesn't make any sense. So if you can do a longer one, maybe you could tell about the story more in the video itself? At this state, it seems more similar to these kind of "pre-trailers" that just kinda accounce that "oh yeah, a film named this is coming"
But still, I like your video really much ^_^

I wrote some things about all videos:
1- At first I thought "oh no! another boring video mixing her pv's, the end is sooooo cool. But in fact is a bit boring the rest of the video. I'd like to everyone see this whole video!

3- Criminal was the song I want to use to made a video (I'll do it anyway xD) but I was trolled when the other criminal started to sound haha, I think it fits well the song.

4- INSOMNIA was like OMG I want to see that film NOW! I like the edit too ^^ I only want to see a bit longer "trailer" too.

5- The letters were so fast, but I like the video, the music was well with the images.

6- I don't like too much the PV's that were used on this video, I don't like male voices either, but it wasn't bad made. Actually the videos were really well mixed with the music.

7- Ahw so cute, I love Replace <3 and how it was put that live part **

8- The "no no no" in Sparkle performance was so LOL haha I love it. Lookin this video made me want even more going to see her live T_T

I still don't know who to vote D: I'm between 4 and 7 besides I enjoy seeing all the videos
